Our savvy Virginia traffic court attorneys fight for you
The odds are pretty good that at some point in your life you will have the misfortune of being stopped by a Virginia police officer and issued a ticket requiring an appearance in traffic court. You might even become one of the many motorists arrested for drinking and driving, or you might be pulled over for exceeding the posted speed limit and charged with reckless driving. Both reckless driving and DUI can result in jail sentences
Whether facing a DUI or a speeding ticket, going to court without first consulting with an attorney is a mistake. The defense attorneys at the Smith Law Firm know that driving violations can cause you to lose your license, pay exorbitant fines and result in points on your driving record that can affect you in the future.
Our hard-working attorneys know the ins and outs of the traffic laws in Virginia. Their extensive experience in traffic courts throughout the state helps them to anticipate how specific judges handle each of the many types of cases that come before them. This can be important to someone charged with a crime such as reckless driving where the law gives judges the discretion to reduce the charge from a misdemeanor punishable by fines up to $2,500, license suspension and jail time to a traffic infraction and a maximum fine of $500.
Virginia makes it very easy to plead guilty to a traffic law violation. If you have been charged with a traffic violation, one of our attorneys can explain the consequences of the charges and explain to you how we can help.
