Featured Client Review
John Weiland got the best possible outcome for me (dismissed charges) when faced with a Reckless Driving charge that could have ended much worse. He was accessible and friendly from the start, and told me exactly what to do for the best chance of a dismissal – and I didn’t even need to be at the hearing!
I highly recommend Mr. Weiland for anyone needing a traffic attorney in the Richmond area.
