Contesting Traffic Tickets in Amelia County

Amelia County police take traffic offenses very seriously. They are charged with enforcing the numerous traffic laws of Virginia and issuing citations for offenses, including tickets for driving under the influence (DUI), driving with a suspended license, and evading law enforcement. Why obtain legal counsel for a traffic ticket? You may not realize it, but the financial implications can be severe and your driving privileges could be at stake. What would you do if you were unable to drive legally?

Featured Review

I highly recommend Mr. Leavitt for any and all traffic matters. From start to finish Mr. Leavitt was accessible each and every time I contacted him. I had a traffic accident and I was concerned about insurance issues and points on my driving record. Mr. Leavitt handled everything and got my charge completely dismissed with no fine. He handled my case personally in court and did not send an associate or new attorney to handle the case... Hiring this attorney was worth every penny.
