Leesburg VA Reckless Driving DISMISSED

Our reckless driving lawyers represented a client accused of reckless driving for driving too fast. In this case, we developed defenses to the police LIDAR device used to calculate speed. A plea of not guilty was entered. We were able to effectively cross examine the police officer who operated the LIDAR in this case and made the reckless driving allegation. We exposed the fact that the LIDAR used in this particular case was not tested for accuracy with properly calibrated tuning forks, which is required by Va. Code 46.2-882. The Court granted our motion to dismiss the case.

Reckless Driving 20+ mph Over The Limit NOT GUILTY

Reckless Driving 20+ mph Over The Limit NOT GUILTYOur reckless driving lawyers defended a student who was charged with Reckless Driving for driving 20+ mph over the speed limit on Route 7. Traffic along Route 7 in Leesburg is often congested as the town is a suburban community to commuters to Washington, D.C.. We were able to present compelling evidence and arguments to persuade the Court to take the case under advisement and to eventually find our client NOT GUILTY of the allegation.

Traffic Court Defense Lawyer Client Review

While returning to NJ from SC, my wife was cited for doing 81 in a 70 and while we actually going nowhere near 81 mph. we were not overly confident in our ability to fight the charge from such a long distance. We contacted Riley & Wells provided the details and they were able to help us lower the charge to a non moving violation, which was a huge help. We had several VA plates in front of us moving faster and several behind and still the officer pulled us out of the group (NJ plates). Something needs to be done about the dishonest way that the State of VA rakes in 100+ million a year in fines on the backs of out of state motorists. Thanks to Riley & Wells at least we have a fighting chance!
