Prince George Reckless Driving Speeding 100/70 mph

our prince george reckless driving attorneys successfully defended a client charged with reckless driving due to traveling 100 miles per hour

Prince George Reckless Driving 100 mph

Our Prince George County VA reckless driving lawyer represented a client from Fairfax who was charged with a misdemeanor reckless driving allegation of speeding 100/70 mph on Interstate 295. Our client was terrified about being sentenced to a term of incarceration. [NOTE: Any case involving speed evidence of 100 miles per hour can very possibly trigger a jail sentence] After reviewing our clients case, it appeared that the state trooper’s evidence of speed was accurate, but we were able to present other evidence to mitigate the allegation and convinced the Judge to find our client NOT GUILTY of reckless driving. Our client was happy to avoid a jail sentence and a career ending misdemeanor conviction.

Prince George County Reckless Driving Attorney Client Review

Out of Town Speeding Shocker! 5.0 stars Posted by Chris September 19, 2014 We live in New York and I was driving the family down to Myrtle Beach. I received a speeding ticket for driving 85mph in a 70mph zone going around Richmond. The officer mentioned that over 80mph was considered reckless driving in VA. This stuck in the back of my mind. After contacting the court, I was shocked to find out that the charge of Reckless Driving is a Class 1 Misdemeanor. I decided to hire an attorney and went to AVVO. After reading the reviews I decided to go with Mitchell Wells. I called him and he could not have been nicer or more knowledgeable. His team makes the process simple and puts your nerves at ease. The outcome was a defective equipment, no points, non-moving traffic infraction. It is tough to find an out of town lawyer. This is the guy you should use!
