Traffic Offenses

Traffic offenses may range from simple speeding infractions to complex felony DWI or hit and run charges.  Violations of traffic laws may subject you to jail time, fines, or other implications.  These charges can also have negative short- and long-term effects on your insurance, your employment, and your criminal and traffic record.  You need to take care of yourself and know all of your options.  The best way to do that is to speak with an experienced attorney with years of practice handling these types of cases.


A charge of driving under the influence or while intoxicated is one of the most serious traffic offenses, with potentially the most serious consequences.  As a misdemeanor, driving while intoxicated can lead to jail time, ignition interlock, license suspension, and other harsh penalties.  Thorough preparation is critical in these cases, so speaking with and obtaining representation of an attorney before your first court date is important.  There are a number of defenses to a DWI charge, and only an experienced defense lawyer can evaluate your case and prepare to fight your case.

Reckless Driving

More serious than a speeding ticket, reckless driving is a criminal misdemeanor in Virginia.  A conviction can land you in jail.  Officers charge reckless driving for many things, from speeding to single-car accidents.  The facts of your case will determine the best defense, so it’s important to seek the help of a criminal defense attorney regardless of the type of reckless driving charge you may be facing.

Driving on Suspended

Regardless of why your license was suspended, we will develop a strategy designed to avoid conviction for driving while suspended, and the punishments that come with it – such as jail time, fines, and further suspension.

Traffic Infractions

From improper driving to running a red light, traffic infractions cover a wide array of charges.  What they all have in common is that a conviction can put points on your driving record, and subject you to high fines and higher insurance costs.  In cases involving an accident, conviction can have a detrimental effect on your ability to defend a personal injury suit.  Speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney before ever setting foot in a courtroom, no matter how minor you think the infraction may be.
