The law prohibits having a phone or handheld personal communication device in your hand while driving pursuant to Va. Code §46.2-818.2.

The hands free law does not apply to drivers who are lawfully parked or stopped, drivers reporting emergencies, and drivers using an amateur or citizens band radio.

Route 58 Mecklenburg Reckless Driving REDUCED to No PointsOur traffic attorneys represented a client from North Carolina accused of criminal misdemeanor reckless driving based on speed evidence in excess of 86 mph. A conviction would have drastic consequences. We convinced the Judge to find our client, NOT GUILTY, as charged. Unfortunately, the Judge was unwilling to dismiss the case. However, we convinced the Judge to reduce the matter to the lowest offense possible, called defective equipment. This is a no points nonmoving violation.

Mecklenburg County VA Speeding Ticket Client Review

We recently had to engage Riley and Wells regarding a traffic citation (81 in a 70 MPH along the I-85 corridor in Mecklenburg County) our daughter received while driving back to her college in VA. After seeing the reviews that were posted, and speaking with the staff at Riley & Wells I believe we made an excellent choice. I appreciate their professionalism and diligent work in getting our her citation reduced to defective equipment. They did a fabulous job in preventing her from having points placed on her license (which would have meant a BIG increase in her premiums). I heartily recommend them to anyone in similar circumstances.
