No one plans on needing a lawyer, but when you are facing a criminal charge as a result of speeding, an attorney with our firm should be the first call you make. Excessive speed, which Virginia traffic law defines as more than 80 miles per hour or more than 20 miles per hour above the posted limit, can lead to a charge of reckless driving, a misdemeanor criminal charge. When you saw the officer’s flashing lights in your rearview mirror, you may have anticipated a traffic ticket. You likely didn’t expect that speeding could land you in jail for up to one year. For help fighting your criminal reckless driving charge, call an experienced Stafford County traffic lawyer (or click here for a general Virginia traffic lawyer)
Though practically every driver has been guilty of speeding at some point in his or her life, for a few Virginia drivers, the term “guilty” has stronger implications. If someone is convicted of reckless driving by speed, he or she faces heavy fines, driving restrictions, loss of license, jail, and a criminal record that can complicate employment options, educational opportunities, and more. Those charged with any criminal act are advised to seek legal counsel from a qualified defense attorney. As a criminal misdemeanor charge, the same applies to reckless driving by speed. For the best defense against your misdemeanor criminal reckless driving charge, contact the attorneys with our firm that will present your case in a way that is specifically designed to obtain the best possible outcome.
If you have never been arrested or formally charged with a criminal violation, your experience in the criminal justice system could feel uncomfortable and perhaps overwhelming. Our attorneys have fought these battles before and they will be able to make you feel confident during your trial, and that could be crucially important to the success of you and your defense team. We want to make sure that you understand everything that is happening with your case, and that you truly believe that we have your best interests in mind with every move that we make. We will be working tirelessly on your behalf to obtain a positive result, and that includes making the process as easy on you as it can be.
