Emporia police take traffic laws very seriously. The public expects them to enforce the numerous traffic offenses under Virginia law, including car wrecks, DUIs, driving on a suspended license, and law enforcement evasion. You need legal counsel for a traffic ticket because the financial implications are severe and your driving privileges are at stake.

So glad we retained Corey Martin to represent our son, who received a traffic ticket in Virginia. He was professional, effective, and managed our case very well. We highly recommend him!
