Speeding Ticket


When you’ve been issued a traffic citation for Speeding in the Metro Richmond or Central Virginia area – even if you’re an out-of-state driver – you should always consider defending yourself against the charge instead of caving in and paying a fee online. Why? Well, speeding tickets have consequences that are often long-term like insurance premium increases and points on your driver’s license. That means that by simply pushing “Pay Now” on the court’s website could cost far more than the ticket price you’re asked to pay. Better to call on The Weiland Firm, PLC and take that ticket to court for a better outcome.

No matter what the circumstances of your Speeding ticket, and no matter where you hail from, The Weiland Firm, PLC will work to see the ticket reduced or dismissed altogether inside and outside the courtroom. Our top-flight traffic lawyers are standing by to assist you with a free initial consultation. Call (804) 355-8037 or use our convenient contact form to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
