The Code of Virginia classifies various offenses such as reckless driving, aggressive driving, driving on a suspended or revoked license, or habitual offender, to name a few, as serious misdemeanor criminal offenses and require skilled representation. Virginia State Troopers, Deputy Sheriffs & police officers regularly patrol Interstate 85 & Routes 1 and 58 in Lawrenceville and Brunswick County, and enforce these offenses. In fact, a motorist can be convicted of Reckless Driving for speeding as little as 11 miles per hour over the limit if the speed allegation is 81 miles per hour in a 70 mile per hour speed zone. A conviction for any traffic misdemeanor can severely jeopardize your freedom, your career, and your driving record.
If you have been arrested or charged with one of these allegations or any other criminal or traffic offense, then you need an accomplished Lawrenceville VA Traffic Lawyer. The Town of Lawrenceville is in Brunswick County, which is where the Courthouse is located. Many of these criminal traffic offenses are punishable as follows:
Maximum fine of $2,500
12 months in jail
Suspension or Revocation of driving privileges of up to 6 months or more
Assessment of DMV demerit points
Increased automobile insurance premiums

Lawrenceville Virginia Traffic Lawyer Client Review
Lawrenceville VA Reckless Driving Speeding REDUCED
Lawrenceville Reckless Driving 90/70 REDUCED
Riley & Wells traffic attorneys represented a client from Maryland who was charged with misdemeanor reckless driving speeding 90/70 mph. During our client intake process, our client indicated to us what amounts to the “wrong car” defense. This is where the radar operator captures speed evidence thru the use of his RADAR unit, but sometimes there becomes an issue as to whether the police officer pulled over the correct vehicle. Our attorneys thoroughly and completely analyzed our client’s case and we were able to convince the Judge to reduce the misdemeanor reckless driving allegation down to a minor speeding case. Our client was happy with the outcome, and perhaps more importantly, was glad that we achieved his goal of avoiding a permanent misdemeanor criminal conviction.
Lawrenceville DUI 0.23 BAC DISMISSED
Riley & Wells Attorneys-At-Law represented a client who was arrested for DUI some period of time after the alleged incident. The client was located after some period of time at a local convenience store where he was observed consuming alcoholic beverages. The client did not perform any field sobriety exercises but provided a breath test that was analyzed. The client’s breath test result as determined by the Department of Forensic Science contained a blood alcohol content of 0.23. The primary issue in the case was what is referred to as “after consumed alcohol.” The Judge granted a defense motion to strike the admissibility of the breath test evidence, which left the prosecution with insufficient evidence to prove its allegation beyond a reasonable doubt. The case was dismissed.
Lawrenceville VA Drive on a Suspended License REDUCED
Riley & Wells traffic lawyers represented a client from Bumpass VA who was pulled over for displaying no front license plate in Lawrenceville-Brunswick County by a Virginia State Trooper. A driver’s license check revealed that our client was driving on a suspended driver’s license in violation of Va. Code 46.2-301. As it turned out, our client was convicted of several minor traffic offenses across Virginia, and had never paid the fines and court costs. As a result, the DMV suspended our client’s privilege to drive. We advised our client how to bring his driving privilege into compliance with the law, and then we made arguments to persuade the Brunswick Judge that the suspended driver’s license should be reduced to a lesser offense with only a minor fine being imposed.
