Hanover County VA Traffic Attorney Client Reviews
Experienced Traffic Attorneys Hanover County
The majority of the Virginia traffic law regulates less serious offenses such as class 3 and class 4 no incarceration misdemeanors and traffic infractions. Regardless of classification, many traffic violations are considered moving violation demerit point offenses and can also trigger loss of driving privileges such as being convicted for failing to maintain an automobile liability insurance policy pursuant to Va. Code 46.2-707. The Virginia DMV can further explain what offenses are considered moving violations and the Virginia demerit point system. Some folks may ask why do I need an attorney to defend a minor traffic infraction? Every case, client and factual situation is different.

Hanover Suspended License Va. Code 18.2-272 REDUCED No Jail
Our traffic lawyers represented a client who was alleged to have been driving in violation of a restricted driver’s license pursuant to Va. Code 18.2-272. The courts and the DMV take allegations like this very seriously. A conviction will typically lead to a jail sentence and loss of driving privileges for 12 months. In this case, Riley & Wells attorneys were able to find a weakness in the prosecution’s case and were also able to present favorable mitigating evidence on behalf of the client to convince the Judge to significantly reduce the allegation without a jail sentence, without loss of driving privileges and with only a minor fine being imposed. The client was relieved to avoid a jail sentence and to avoid any further loss of driving privileges.
Hanover County VA Reckless Driving Speeding DISMISSED
Hanover County Reckless Driving DISMISSED
Our traffic law attorneys represented a VCU student from Fredericksburg VA who was pulled over by a Virginia State Trooper on Interstate 295. The allegation was that the state trooper used R.A.D.A.R. to determine that our client was in violation of the reckless driving speeding law (84/70 mph) pursuant to Va. Code 46.2-862. We were able to appear in Court for the client without the client returning to Hanover County and we convinced the Judge to dismiss the case. The client was required to complete a driver improvement program, which he completed online, and to pay an $89 court cost. An excellent result for the client, particularly considering that a conviction would have meant 6 DMV demerit points, possible loss of driving privileges, and a likely increase in automobile insurance premiums.
