Prince George County – Background on Traffic Tickets

Prince George County sheriffs and Virginia State police officers take all traffic offenses very seriously. Together, they enforce the strict traffic laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and local traffic ordinances. Officers target, ticket, and sometimes even arrest motorists for speeding, driving with a suspended license, driving under the influence (DUI), evading law enforcement, and many other moving violations. Why should you consult an attorney if you receive a Virginia traffic ticket? Even though a traffic ticket may seem simple, a citation can have long-term effects that you may not immediately see. You could lose your driving privileges, face steep fines or other financial consequences, or 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.
