Contesting Traffic Tickets in Colonial Heights County

The police and patrol officers of Colonial Heights County take traffic offenses very seriously. Their duties are to enforce the traffic laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and issue citations for a wide variety of different violations. They target motorists for moving violations, driving under the influence (DUI), driving with a suspended license, speeding, evading law enforcement, and more.

Why do you need an attorney for a Virginia speeding ticket? A traffic ticket can have severe consequences that may not be immediately apparent. The long-term financial implications can be significant, your driving privileges in the short or long term could be at risk, and you could even be sentenced to jail time!

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.
