Greensville County VA Reckless Driving Client Reviews
Mr. Dean was my attorney for a reckless driving charge, he was able to talk them down to dismissing the case after driving school, overall very satisfied with his performance.

I was alleged of 92 in 70 criminal reckless driving. Mr. Wells defended my case in Emporia and got it ruled as defective equipment just like he told me he would attempt to do. There are definitely cheaper options, but I live out of state about 7 hours from Emporia and I value my time heavily so I didn't mind paying for him to show up for me to defend the case with his great track record. Would recommend.

I was charged with a criminal reckless driving offense in Virginia when I was driving by, I was scared and it felt like my world was coming to end, someome recommended this firm and I decided to try them out, they reduced my offense from a criminal conviction to a defective equipment, non moving ticket, which is almost like a dismissed case cos it carrys no point and doesn't affect my driving record or increase my insurance.. So it was a let off for me and I can once again drive around with my clean record still intact... Am glad I chose them to represent me.. Thank you for all you do
