Richmond DUI Reduced to Reckless Driving

Recently, John Weiland of the law firm Weiland Upton, PLLC obtained an amazing result for a client charged with DUI and Refusal in Richmond, Virginia.

After being pulled over by the police, the client did poorly on his Field Sobriety Tests and blew a .20 on the roadside breathalyzer (PBT or Preliminary Breath Test). The client then failed to provide a valid breath sample at the police station. The case was peculiar, however, in that the client had been assaulted and obtained a concussion less than an hour before he got behind the wheel. After significant preparation, Mr. Weiland was able to explain the circumstances of the client’s situation and have the Refusal charge dismissed and the DUI charge reduced to Reckless Driving with minimal penalties and no jail.

Hanover Reckless Driving Ticket Reduced

The law firm Weiland Upton, PLLC, was able to obtain a great result for a client in Hanover County last week.  Our client received a Hanover Reckless Driving ticket for traveling 95 mph in a 70 mph zone.

In Hanover County this speed subjects you to an active jail sentence, driver’s license suspension and a high fine.  The Virginia State Trooper alleged that our client was traveling at this rate of speed in the middle of the afternoon among heavy holiday traffic.

Since the client followed our advice and provided us with all the information requested, we were able to make a very strong appeal to the judge.  As a result, the judge not only refused to put our client in jail or suspend his driver’s license, he actually reduced the charge down from Reckless Driving to a minor traffic offense called Improper Driving and gave him a fine only.

If you or anyone you know finds themselves charged with a serious traffic offense in Virginia such as Reckless Driving or Driving Under the Influence, feel free to contact the attorneys at Weiland Upton, PLLC, (804) 355-8037.

Richmond Va Reckless Driving Case Ends With Great Results

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.

Last week,  the law firm Weiland Upton, PLLC, obtained a fantastic result for a client facing a serious Reckless Driving ticket in Richmond, Virginia.

Our client was charged with going 57 mph in a 25 mph zone.  Since the client was going in excess of double the speed limit in the fan district of Richmond, she was looking at some serious potential consequences.  While the client’s record was clean over the past several years, it did reflect a DUI conviction from about seven years ago.

Thanks to the attorny presentation to the court, the client avoided a jail sentence, high fine and license suspension.  In fact, the attorney was able to convince the judge to completely dismiss the Reckless Driving charge if the client merely pays court costs and completes an aggressive driver education program.

Henrico Country Commercial Driver’s License Ticket Charges Reduced

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 this month Weiland Upton represented a client who received a ticket in Henrico County Virginia for Failing to Yield the Right of Way.
Our client’s ticket was a result of him backing his tractor trailer across major and heavy traveled road from one parking lot to another parking lot on the other side of the road. The illegal maneuver caused an approaching vehicle to hit his tractor trailer as a it entered the road, which in turn caused a backup on the road. This client’s case was made more complicated by the fact that he holds a Commercial Driver’s License rather than a normal non-commercial license.

The impact that traffic violations classified as “moving violations” has on a holder of a commercial driver’s license is much more profound than that on a typical licensee. As a result, the client’s ticket was reduced from a “moving violation” to a “non-moving violation,” which made a significant positive impact on the client’s driving record as a CDL holder.

The law firm Weiland Upton was able to recently get a client’s Henrico Va Reckless Driving ticket, 91 mph in a 70 mph zone, reduced down from Reckless Driving charge to a simple speeding ticket.

Our client was handed a Reckless Driving ticket from a Virginia State Trooper for traveling 91 mph as she was traveling to a training seminar after work.  The client had a clean driving record and a few other mitigating factors in her favor.  Through our efforts, we were able to convince the Court and prosecutor to not only avoid a jail sentence and suspension of her driver’s license, but was also able to do so much better by obtaining a very unusual result of having the charge reduced out of Reckless Driving down to a simple speeding ticket with a fine and court costs.

Henrico Country Reckless Driving Case Leads to Good Results

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.

(Henrico County Va) The law firm Weiland Upton obtained a great result recently for a client who received a Henrico Va Reckless Driving ticket for driving 94 mph in a 70 mph zone.

In Henrico County, people who are given a Reckless Driving ticket for traveling at that speed often face active jail sentences, a suspension of their driving privileges and a very high fine.We were able to spend the time necessary discussing the case with the client to put together for the court a great argument to convince the judge to not impose a strict sentence. In order to make such an argument, We had the client do several things in advance of court to impress upon the judge that a license suspension and/or jail sentence would not be appropriate in this client’s case.

since the client took our advice prior to court, the client was able to avoid both a suspension of her driver’s license and a jail sentence. In fact, the client merely received a $100 fine plus court costs. The client was very happy and relieved by the result in her case.
