Wytheville VA Reckless Driving 90+ mph NOT GUILTY

Our Wytheville VA Reckless Driving Attorneys represented a university student who was charged with Reckless Driving for driving 90+ miles per hour near the Interstate 81/77 interchange. There are 29 universities and colleges located along the I-81 corridor. Half of all Virginia university students and their families use Interstate 81. We were able to present evidence and arguments that persuaded the Court and Commonwealth Attorney to take the case under advisement to eventually significantly reduce the allegation. We prevailed and our client was found not guilty of reckless driving. Our client avoided a life changing misdemeanor criminal conviction.

Reckless Driving 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
