Great experience with Riley and Wells handling a reckless driving ticket (83mph in a 70mph zone). Being from out of state, I didn't realize Virginia handled certain speeds differently than a simple moving violation. They walked me through what was needed and got a favorable outcome from the court appearance.

Our Hopewell Reckless Driving Attorneys represented a client who was pulled over on Interstate 295 by a Hopewell Deputy Sheriff for reckless driving in violation of Va. Code 46.2-862 due to speed evidence that our client was traveling 98 miles per hour. Our client feared being convicted of a misdemeanor offense, which would have significantly affected his security clearance. Our attorneys prepared a defense strategy and arguments that we believed would convince the Court to reduce our client’s allegations. We were right. We persuaded the Judge to significantly reduce the misdemeanor reckless driving at a speed of 98 miles per hour to the lesser offense of improper driving. Improper driving is not a misdemeanor, but a mere traffic infraction.
