Reckless Driving (Speed): Weiland Upton has years of experience getting this type of traffic charge dismissed – or reduced down to a minor traffic offense. In Virginia, someone driving 20+mph more than the posted speed limit (or over 80mph) can be charged and convicted of reckless driving by speed. It is not necessary for the police officer to prove you were driving in a reckless manner (for example: weaving in and out of traffic). Excessive speed is sufficient to be found guilty. Reckless driving of this type is not a basic speeding ticket. Depending on the speed, you may receive a jail sentence, a large fine, and the suspension of your driver’s license. Call us so we can advise you on your case.
Reckless Driving (Accident): Our attorneys have successfully argued for the reduction or dismissal of the majority of the reckless driving cases we have represented. If you were in a single-vehicle or multiple-vehicle accident, you could be charged with reckless driving. Like reckless driving by speed, this type of charge is a crime. Our experienced lawyers are knowledgeable about successful legal defenses for reckless driving. Let us help you avoid a criminal conviction that can cause the loss of your driver’s license, excessive demerit points, increased insurance costs and expensive fines.
Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs: Our law firm’s primary focus is the areas of DUI and traffic offenses; because of this, we handle drunk driving cases in King George County on a regular basis. The law in Virginia provides serious consequences for DUI charges. If this is your first DUI offense, you can expect an expensive fine, potential incarceration, a driver’s license suspension of 1 year, and a required alcohol education program. If this is your second DUI offense that has occurred within 10 years of your previous DUI, you can expect a higher mandatory minimum jail sentence. For your third DUI, it is considered a felony. We will work to save you from the requirements and punishments of a DUI conviction; be it by getting the charges reduced or by achieving a dismissal of your case.
