Reckless Driving in Virginia
If you have received a reckless driving charge there are many things we can do to mitigate the extent of the punishment exacted by the court and in many cases we can get the charge reduced to a non-criminal violation. It should also be noted that in the overwhelming majority of cases our clients do not have to appear - we can handle the case on their behalf. When I first say this during a consultation I can hear some reluctance on behalf of the person with whom I am speaking. However, I can assure you that in cases where we advise a client that they do not have to appear in court there is absolutely no benefit to our client to appear. We will also step you through the process. We work for our clients and we will step you through the process from the beginning to the end. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office for a free consultation.
The potential punishments listed in statute are a worst case scenario. In all of my years of practice I have never seen anyone get the maximum punishment under the law - not to say it has not happened - and in most cases we can avoid jail time. In fact we have been able to avoid jail time in the overwhelming majority of the reckless driving cases we have handled. Each case is determined on a case by case basis and we handle each case as its own unique case with its own unique facts. Step One: Don't panic. Step Two: contact our office. We would be happy to speak to you.
