Prince George County Traffic Lawyer Client Review

Best Lawyer in Virginia 5.0 stars Posted by Roberto February 25, 2015 I was heading home to NY from a funeral in NC and was pulled over in VA. The trooper informed me that it's reckless driving in VA going over 80 mph. This is the first time I was pulled over for such a fractious situation. As you might imagine I was saddened by the loss of a family member only to encounter this on my way back. Little did I know that a reckless driving offense in VA carries a misdemeanor charge. Panicked, I hired Mitch through a colleague at work who happened to use his services. I did not regret it at all. Office staff and Mr. Wells himself were true professionals and eased my nerves at a delicate time. Please use this gentlemen for your needs though I hope my experience will teach others to slow down. It's not worth it. When i did the math at the speed limit versus speeding, it only saved me an hour. My advise? Slow down.

Reckless Driving Speeding 30 mph over the speed limit REDUCED

Prince George VA Reckless Driving REDUCED

Our Prince George County traffic attorneys successfully represented a client who was alleged to have been traveling 30 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. In some states this may simply be a speeding ticket but not in Virginia. The Virginia Reckless Driving Law is among one of the nation’s toughest laws on speed related offenses. We were able to present various defenses and were able to present favorable evidence that convinced the Judge to find our client NOT GUILTY of reckless driving and to reduce the case to a low-level minor infraction of improper driving. Our client was thankful to have avoided a permanent misdemeanor conviction and a reckless driving disposition that would have significantly jeopardized driving privileges, his employment and the automobile insurance policy.

Prince George Impersonation DISMISSED

Our Prince George VA traffic lawyers represented a client from New York who was pulled over for speeding. Our client was originally from another country and spoke broken English. The speed evidence was in excess of 80 mph and thus triggered Virginia’s infamous misdemeanor Reckless Driving law pursuant to Va. Code 46.2-862. Our client possessed a family member’s police association PBA Card at the time.The police officer who initiated this traffic stop was characterized by our client as very aggressive. The client drove away from the traffic stop literally stunned because he had been charged with two misdemeanor criminal allegations.

Prince George Reckless Driving REDUCED

One summons was alleging reckless driving for speeding 18 mph over the speed limit, and the other allegation was alleging a police impersonation violation for simply possessing his Uncle’s PBA card. Our attorneys analyzed the case and determined that the police officer did not gather sufficient evidence to prove the allegations. We convinced a normally fierce prosecutor to drop the police insignia allegation and convinced the Judge to drop the misdemeanor reckless driving allegation down to a minor traffic infraction of speeding. Our client was relieved to put what had become a nightmare behind him with only having to pay a minor fine for simple speeding.
