Contesting Traffic Tickets in Chesterfield County

Chesterfield County police officers take traffic offenses very seriously. Their duties are to enforce the traffic laws of Virginia and issue citations for a wide variety of violations. They will stop and ticket motorists for driving under the influence (DUI), speeding, driving with a suspended license, evading law enforcement, and more. Why should you seek legal counsel for a traffic ticket? You may not realize it, but a traffic ticket can have significant consequences. The financial implications can be severe, your driving privileges could be at risk, and you could even go to jail!

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.
