Traffic Tickets in New Kent County

New Kent County and Commonwealth of Virginia police officers enforce the strict local and state traffic laws, taking violations extremely seriously. Law enforcement officers routinely issue citations for speeding, moving violations, driving under the influence (DUI), driving with a revoked or suspended license, and more. It’s vital that you hire an experienced attorney for a Virginia traffic ticket because it can have serious long-term consequences. Besides being a short-term inconvenience, you could lose your driving privileges temporarily or permanently, your auto insurance rates could increase, costing you thousands over the next few years, 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.
