The New Kent County Deputy Sheriffs and Virginia State Troopers that patrol New Kent County are serious about law enforcement. The state troopers and deputy sheriffs tend to focus their attention to Interstate 64, Route 60, Route 30 and New Kent Highway (Route 249), as well as the Providence Forge, Quinton, Lanexa & Eltham areas of the county. Some people do not think they need a traffic lawyer if they have received a traffic ticket for a minor traffic infraction. This may be true in some instances, but our New Kent County VA Traffic Lawyers will ensure that you are not intimated in the courtroom, that you do not crack under cross-examination and that your best defense is presented. Minor traffic infractions are often still worth defending to protect the driving record, the automobile insurance policy and driving privileges in some instances. Additionally, we can often appear before the Court on our client’s behalf and successfully resolve the case.

Most of these criminal traffic offenses are punishable as follows:
Maximum fine of $2,500
12 months in jail [Felony conviction carries longer sentence]
Suspension or Revocation of driving privileges
Assessment of DMV demerit points
Increased automobile insurance premiums or loss of policy
Loss of employment or employment opportunities

New Kent VA Allowing Unauthorized Person To Drive REDUCED
New Kent VA Driving Suspended allegation REDUCED
Our New Kent Traffic Lawyers represented a client who was accused of allowing a suspended driver to operate a motor vehicle. The incident in question involved a traffic accident where the driver of a motor vehicle’s driving privileges were revoked by the DMV. Our client was the owner of the vehicle being operating and the father of the driver. The New Kent Deputy Sheriff was alleging that our client knew his sons driving privileges were revoked and that he allowed him to operate the vehicle at the time it crashed. Our client was prepared to testify that he did not know of his adult son’s driving status of being revoked and that his son took the vehicle without permission. This was a very important matter for our client as this allegation is a misdemeanor criminal offense and our client is a contract worker and needed to maintain various security clearances. Our traffic attorneys had gathered all of the necessary evidence to present the best defense at trial, but we were also to convince the prosecution to significantly reduce the allegation if our client was willing to accept a minor traffic infraction with a $10 fine. Our client did not want to take the risk of perhaps not prevailing at trial and after all – a $10 fine for a no demerit point traffic infraction was not considered a loss. Our client was very happy with the outcome.
