Everyone knows that getting caught speeding could leave you with a costly traffic ticket, but a Virginia traffic lawyer understands that excessive speed can also lead to reckless driving charges. Reckless driving is a criminal offense that can result in heavy fines, loss of license, and even time in jail. Virtually everyone has been guilty of speeding at some time or other. Do not let your alleged speed land you behind bars or leave you dealing with a criminal record. Protect your rights with legal representation from one of the attorneys with our firm who has experience handling this type of case.
Beginning July 1, 2013, a series of changes to Virginia distracted driving and DUI laws came into effect throughout the Commonwealth. You can read more about what’s changed here.
Traffic Lawyers in Virginia
If you have been charged with a violation that took place while you were behind the wheel of car, you likely need the assistance of a traffic lawyer from our firm to handle your case. Even if it was just routine speeding and the charge or fine you face is not considered that serious, we advise you to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys, the first one is always free. During this time, you can ask your attorney about whether or not the services they provide will help you fight the charges you face, and what strategies they may use when organizing your defense. Our attorneys will be able to investigate the circumstances surrounding you being pulled over by police and what information could lead to have the charge or ticket dropped by the police entirely. If you rely on your ability to drive in order to work or earn a living, it is very important that you try to minimize any traffic or speeding related charges that you face. Our attorneys can help you do just that.

Virginia Speeding Attorneys
Speeding is probably the most common traffic violation. It seems unfair that an action performed with such frequency can cause a law-abiding citizen to be criminalized. However, with Virginia’s notoriously tough traffic laws, speeding in excess of 20 mph over the posted speed limit can bring a criminal reckless driving charge. This means that even relatively low speeds can cause a person to be charged with reckless driving. For example, if the posted speed limit is only 25 mph, then a driving speed of just over 45 mph—which hardly seems daring and aggressive—can be considered reckless driving. Do not let a speeding ticket turn into a legal nightmare. Contact a Virginia traffic lawyer with our firm for help.
