- secondary consequences such as
- employment issues

As an Emporia, VA Traffic Attorney Who Specializes in Reckless Driving and Speeding I can Often DO BETTER
My client hired me after the fact. She was a college student and she went to court by herself and was convicted of reckless driving by speed. I was able to get involved after the fact and get the judge to REOPEN the case and AMEND the charge to a non moving violation that has no points. Getting this fixed is more difficult than simply going to court for someone on their court date so my fee was higher than normal. But my client realized the severity a conviction would mean. See the case result:
§ 46.2-862. Exceeding speed limit.
