Dinwiddie Virginia Criminal & Reckless Driving Lawyer Client Reviews
Dinwiddie VA Felony shooting missile into occupied vehicle DISMISSED
Our Dinwiddie County Lawyers represented a truck driver from Georgia who was accused of violating Va. Code 18.2-154. This law deals with shooting or throwing certain objects at another occupied motor vehicle. The incident began as a road rage type of incident between our client and another driver. Our client maintained that the other driver was at fault in the altercation and that our client was simply trying to protect himself. The state trooper who investigated the incident determined that our client was the individual that broke the law and our client was arrested. We disagreed with the arrest and prepared various arguments as to why our client was innocent. We were successful in having the allegation DISMISSED.
Trusted Dinwiddie VA Reckless Driving DUI Traffic Defense Lawyers
Drunk driving and reckless driving are considered serious misdemeanor traffic offenses. Both are aggressively enforced by the Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia State Police. Many DUI arrests and reckless driving cases are a result of targeted patrols. These are along Interstate 85, Cox Road (Route 460) & Boydton Plank Road (Route 1). The DUI law is complex. The consequences of a conviction are serious and life changing. Mandatory minimum jail sentences, loss of driving privileges and rigorous treatment programs are common. We understand this. If you have been arrested, then you need an advocate now! The reckless driving law is not as complex as the DUI law, but it is also a criminal misdemeanor that can have a long standing negative impact if convicted. A conviction can be an embarrassing and devastating event. We represent traffic law clients every week in this court. We are dedicated to defending our clients. They benefit from our knowledge of the Dinwiddie courts. We have the experience to present your best defense.
Dinwiddie County Reckless Driving Speeding 95 mph DISMISSED
Our Dinwiddie VA Reckless Driving Lawyers represented a a U.S. Army soldier who was accused of reckless driving speeding on Interstate 85 where the Virginia State Trooper was alleging that our client was traveling at a speed of 95 miles per hour. NOTE: Speed in excess of 80 miles per hour violates the Virginia reckless driving law, but speed evidence close to 100 miles per hour can (and often does) trigger an active term of incarceration. In this case, we presented various pieces of evidence along with persuasive argument to not only protect our client from an active term of incarceration, but we were also able to convince the Judge to find our client not guilty and to DISMISS the case.
