Traffic Tickets in Mecklenburg County

Mecklenburg County and Commonwealth of Virginia police officers take traffic offenses extremely seriously. It’s their job to enforce the strict local and state traffic laws and issue citations for violations. Officers routinely issue tickets for speeding, moving violations, driving under the influence (DUI), driving with a revoked or suspended license, and more. Why should you hire an experienced attorney for a Virginia traffic ticket? Because although a ticket may seem like just an inconvenience, it can have other, more subtle long-term consequences. You could lose your driving privileges temporarily or permanently; your auto insurance rates could skyrocket, costing you thousands over the next few years; you could even be sentenced to time in 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.
