Traffic Tickets in Hanover County

The county and state police officers working in Hanover County take traffic offenses very seriously. Their duties are to enforce the strict traffic laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and issue citations. Officers target motorists for speeding tickets, moving violations, evading law enforcement, driving under the influence (DUI), driving with a suspended license, and more. Why should you retain an attorney for a Virginia traffic ticket? Because although a traffic ticket seems simple, it can have long-term implications that may not be immediately apparent. There may be long-term negative financial consequences, your driving privileges could be suspended or revoked, 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.
