(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. If you or someone you know finds themselves facing a Reckless Driving ticket in Virginia, please feel free to call the attorneys at Weiland Upton, (804) 355-8037.
