91 mph Hopewell Reckless Driving Misdemeanor Reduced to low-level Traffic Infraction

THE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE UNDERTAKEN BY THE LAWYER. THE RESULTS DEPEND ON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE.

Earlier today, John Weiland of the law firm Weiland Upton convinced the Judge in Hopewell , Virginia’s General District Court to reduce his client’s Reckless Driving Class 1 Misdemeanor to Improper Driving, a low-level traffic infraction.

The client was charged with Hopewell Va Reckless Driving by Speed: 91 mph in a 70 mph zone.  In addition to 6 demerit points on her license, a huge insurance rate increase, employment ramifications, and a criminal conviction, she was facing potential license suspension and in many jurisdictions – even jail.

Our attorney was able to present mitigating evidence on her behalf to have the matter reduced drastically (to a 3 point minor traffic violation – improper driving) without her even having to appear in court.
