Samantha Upton represented a client charged with Reckless Driving for speeding 82 MPH in a 70 MPH zone in Brunswick County, Va. The client only had one previous traffic infraction on her record. She was a resident of New Jersey and would have a difficult time appearing in court.

On the trial date, Ms. Upton was not only able to get the client’s appearance at trial excused but convinced the judge to reduce the Reckless Driving charge to Defective Equipment, a non-moving, no-points violation. This reduction allowed the client to avoid the criminal conviction associated with a Reckless Driving charge. The client only needed to pay a fine and court costs.
