I was driving through Sussex County in Virginia en route to funerals for two of my childhood friends in New York and Connecticut when I was pulled over on March 29, 2019, at 7:50 a.m. An officer had gotten behind me and pulled me over for doing 84 miles per hour in a 70 miles per hour zone. I was issued a criminal summons for “Reckless Driving” instead of a speeding ticket. I was worried about my insurance premium increasing, points on my driver’s license, suspension, a possible jail term, and the possibility of losing my job. However, I discovered the Riley & Wells law firm after doing some research on the Internet. I called and spoke with Mr. Cody A. Remington. During our conversation, I quickly realized that Mr. Remington was very knowledgeable and experienced with Reckless Driving cases. I actually felt a lot better after speaking with Mr. Remington. I was told that since I am from South Carolina, Mr. Remington could appear in court at my trial without me being present. This meant that I would not miss a day of work which made me extremely happy. To make a long story short, Mr. Remington had my Reckless Driving charge (a class 1 misdemeanor) reduced to Defective Speedometer (an infraction). No points were placed on my driver’s license and this is viewed as a non-moving traffic infraction. The Riley & Wells law firm did an outstanding job providing me with professional legal representation. In the near future, I am going to pay my good fortune forward by paying the Riley & Wells representation fee for someone less fortunate. If anyone is charged with Reckless Driving in the State of Virginia, I highly recommend a consultation with counsel at Riley & Wells. You will not regret it! E.L.N.

Code 46.2-301. Our client had no idea that his driving privileges were suspended. He was not from the area and was not in a position to return for a trial. We prepared and argued the case in such a manner that the client’s return was not necessary. We argued to the Judge that our client lacked the necessary intent to violate the law as alleged. The Judge agreed with our arguments and dismissed the client’s case. We achieved the best possible outcome and also made the process as easy as possible because the client did not have to return to Sussex County for trial.

Sussex County VA Traffic Ticket DISMISSED

Our Sussex County traffic lawyers represented a client who was charged with failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, more popularly known as the “Move Over Law” in violation of Va.

We pled our client not guilty and made the necessary arguments. The Judge agreed with our position and dismissed the case.

Sussex Reckless Driving Speeding 93/70 mph REDUCED

speeding over 80 miles an hour in sussex county virginia is a violation of the virginia reckless driving law under 46.2-862Our Sussex VA traffic attorneys represented a client from Maryland who was pulled over on Interstate 95 by a Virginia State Trooper. Our client was especially concerned about walking away from this event with a permanent misdemeanor criminal conviction as she serves in the military and possesses high levels of clearance. Like many with a government security clearance, a misdemeanor conviction can be devastating to the clearance and perhaps an otherwise promising career. We had various arguments ready to persuade the Court why it should not find our client guilty of a misdemeanor for speeding. The Judge agreed and reduced the case out of the misdemeanor category down to the lesser infraction of speeding only. No misdemeanor conviction.

Sussex County Traffic Attorney Client Review

Being unfamiliar with how much lawyers usually cost for these types of cases I would say it was fair. Reckless Driving charge in Virginia bumped down to defective equipment is ok with me. The initial call to Cody was all I needed to tell me he was the guy for me, He laid out what he expected to happen for my case and laid to rest any misconceptions I had. Now I hear this outcome is a common one for courts in VA whether there is a lawyer involved or not but since I live and work out of town it would have been hard to make it to court for my case and who knows how long that day would have been in court. Cody and his office were quick to get me answers and prompt to inform me of the decision in my case
