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.

Lawrenceville VA Reckless Driving Speeding Ticket NOT GUILTY
RECKLESS DRIVING NOT GUILTY – NO POINTS
Our lawyers represented a client from Maryland who was charged with misdemeanor reckless driving for speeding on Interstate 85 in Lawrenceville VA. Our client indicated that the police officer may have pulled over the wrong car for excessive speeding. This is called the “wrong car” defense. Our reckless driving attorneys thoroughly and completely analyzed our client’s case and we were able to convince the Judge to find our client not guilty of misdemeanor reckless driving. The Judge then granted our motion to reduce the allegation down to a minor no points non moving infraction. Our client was happy with the outcome to avoid a permanent misdemeanor criminal conviction.
