Sussex County Virginia Trial Lawyer Client Reviews

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.

Sussex County Virginia DUI DISMISSED


Our Sussex County Traffic Lawyers represented a client who was accused of drunk driving while driving on Route 460 by a Virginia State Trooper. After extensive investigation and due diligence, we determined that the prosecution had serious issues with the case that prevented them from possibly being able to prove the allegation beyond a reasonable doubt, which the law requires according to the U.S. Constitution. After multiple appearances before the Court, and negotiations with the prosecution, we were eventually able to successfully convince the Judge to DISMISS the case.
