You were in a hurry. You saw the police officer’s flashing lights in your rearview mirror and groaned as you pulled over to the side of the road. You hoped to be let off with a warning, but anticipated that you might drive away with an expensive speeding ticket.

You never thought you would ever be treated like a criminal, and didn’t know where you could turn to for help. If you are in this situation, it’s wise to seek out the peace of mind provided by a Leesburg traffic lawyer.
Skilled Leesburg Speeding Lawyer
Of all Virginia moving violations, speeding is perhaps the most common. There are many reasons a person might drive faster than the posted limit, and most of these reasons have no criminal intent behind them. Perhaps you were running late and pushed your speed a little too far in trying to make up time. Maybe the speed limit was not clearly marked or the sign was obscured, and you had no idea you were even breaking the law. A perceived emergency may have had you trying to get to your home or to the hospital as quickly as possible. Whatever the reason, one of the skilled and experienced members of our legal team can represent you in court to cast your case in the best possible light. A successful outcome may be a dismissal, an acquittal, or reduction of your charge to a civil infraction. If you have any questions about these laws and what type of penalties could be associated with a violation of them, please visit Virginia’s DMV website for more information.
Reckless driving by speed is a misdemeanor criminal offense. As such, anyone convicted of speed-related reckless driving may be sentenced to up to one year in jail. Other consequences of conviction include fines of up to $2,500 and a six-month driver’s license suspension. With a moving violation on your driving record for eleven years, your insurance premiums may increase dramatically. A qualified attorney with our firm can help you minimize or avoid these consequences by launching an aggressive defense crafted to specifically suit the unique circumstances of your case.
Our attorneys have had experience in every particular type of traffic case, which is important because there are so many different charges or tickets that you could be facing as the result of a routine traffic stop. Even reckless driving, a more serious offense that comes with a criminal charge, is something that our attorneys have successfully handled plenty of times in the past. We know what it takes to win these cases, and we can help make sure that you have a defense strategy in place that gives you the best possible chance at a positive result. If you have received a traffic ticket, you don’t have to just pay your fine, accept the points and move on. Contact a Leesburg traffic lawyer today at 888-415-8090.
