Do I Need an Alexandria Reckless Driving Attorney?
For many people, a traffic stop leads to a ticket that is more of an annoyance than anything else. In some cases, paying a ticket may be a financial difficulty as well. For those charged with reckless driving, however, the situation is much more serious. Beyond the fine and possibility of jail time, the individual charged also faces the specter of a criminal record that can impact educational and employment opportunities. The attorneys with our firm have both the legal knowledge and resources to help clients fight the criminal charge, working for a dismissal, an acquittal, or a reduction of the charge. If the case eventually gets to the trial, we have litigation experience and we know exactly what it takes to obtain a positive result. We can’t promise results in your case, but we will be working very hard throughout the entire process to make sure that the case and a possible conviction have as little of an impact on your life as possible. Please consult Wikipedia for more information about reckless driving laws in the Commonwealth of Virginia and throughout the Nation.
We represent Virginians charged with serious traffic offenses. These violations may seem fairly innocent, but state law determines that they jeopardize the safety of the general public, and therefore, are criminally reckless. Some traffic violations that can lead to a charge of reckless driving include speeding in excess of 20 mph over the posted speed limit, failing to signal, passing a stopped school bus, passing on a curve, failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, and many more. Even “aggressive driving,” such as weaving in and out of traffic, can lead to a criminal traffic charge. The line between a reckless driving charge and a typical traffic violation is pretty thin, and it might be difficult to understand exactly what you did to incur a criminal violation. Our attorneys offer a free initial consultation where you can ask them any questions you might have about the charge you are facing or about the case that lies ahead for you. When you are initially arrested you might not realize what kind of charge you are going to face or the penalties that would accompany a conviction. Let us answer any questions you might have about your case, while also putting together a strategy for your defense whether it be reckless driving or a simple speeding violation.
