Received a reckless driving charge and they we're able to get it waived with the exception that I attend driving school (which I did online). They also represented me in court and I didn't ever have to step foot on the premises. Very little hassle and worth the price!

Emporia Police Issue Reckless Ticket

Driving 100 mph is taken very seriously by Emporia VA judges. In this case, our client was a professional driver who at the wrong moment with an open road decided to “open up” his Mustang and “punched it” for a few seconds. Unfortunately, a Police Officer was operating stationary RADAR at the exact same location and exact same time as our client and gathered evidence of speeds of 100 mph. Our lawyers were eventually able to present various arguments based on the evidence in the case to convince the Judge to enter an order that found our client NOT GUILTY of criminal misdemeanor reckless driving. The case was reduced to defective equipment. Click on the image to the left for actual court disposition.

When I hired Mr. Wells I was charged with wreckless driving for doing 93/70. To keep it brief he successfully settled my case with a lesser charge of improper driving. I'm exceptionally grateful for his expertise and professionalism. His dedicated staff helped keep me informed and were very responsive. I highly recommend Mr. Wells and will return if I ever have any legal trouble in the future.
