Traffic Tickets in Dinwiddie County

The county and state police officers of Dinwiddie County take traffic offenses very seriously. Their duties are to enforce the sometimes harsh traffic laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and issue citations for a variety of different violations. Officers target motorists for speeding, moving violations, driving under the influence (DUI), driving with a suspended license, evading law enforcement, and more. Why do you need an attorney for a Virginia traffic ticket? What seems like a simple ticket can have severe consequences that may not be immediately apparent. There may be long-term financial implications, you may lose your driving privileges in the short or long term, 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.
