Emporia VA Reckless Driving Ticket Client Reviews

Outstanding support 5.0 stars Posted by a client February 27, 2015 HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! After our initial phone call, Mr. Wells eased my concerns and fears. I was charged with reckless driving (speeding) on I-95 at Emporia, VA by a county sheriff. He listened to my story and requested I send all the pertinent documents to him that day. His support staff is top-notched; they kept me abreast during the process. Mr. Wells told me that I did not need to go to court, that he would not need me. He pleaded down my reckless driving ticket to defective equipment ($75 fine, court cost and no points). I would highly recommend this attorney if you need representation, especially down along the Emporia/I95 speed trap corridor.

Being unfamiliar with how much lawyers usually cost for these types of cases I would say it was fair. Reckless Driving charge in Virginia bumped down to defective equipment is ok with me. The initial call to Cody was all I needed to tell me he was the guy for me, He laid out what he expected to happen for my case and laid to rest any misconceptions I had. Now I hear this outcome is a common one for courts in VA whether there is a lawyer involved or not but since I live and work out of town it would have been hard to make it to court for my case and who knows how long that day would have been in court. Cody and his office were quick to get me answers and prompt to inform me of the decision in my case
