Today, in Hanover County, I represented a client charged with Reckless Driving who was ticketed for going 88 mph in a 70 mph zone. Most judges in the Commonwealth of Virginia are of the opinion that speeds approaching 90 mph are very serious offenses. However, in this case, I was able to fight for a reduction in order to get rid of the misdemeanor charge.
