Driving twenty miles per hour over the posted speed limit is considered reckless driving in Virginia, as well as anything over 80 mph, even if the posted speed limit is 65 or 70 mph.

There are many other forms of Reckless Driving that are often charged in Virginia. An officer can issue a Reckless Driving summons for accidents, or even when the officer just doesn't like the way you are driving. Just because you are charged with Reckless Driving does not mean you are guilty of driving recklessly.

Have you been charged?  We’re here to defend you whether you’re a resident of Virginia or someone just passing through.  We’re here to help.


Speeding tickets and other traffic infractions can affect you beyond just a monetary fine. Traffic infractions, like speeding tickets, lead to demerit points, which can jeopardize your driver's license and cause higher insurance premiums.

Improper passing or driving, driving or riding on a sidewalk, failure to yield the right of way, failure to yield when making a left turn, following too closely, improper lane change, and failure to stop or signal all carry points that can be added to your driving record, come with fines, and can drastically impact your insurance premiums.

We can help you by potentially getting your traffic infraction dismissed or reduced, usually without you needing to appear in court.


We cover a wide range of criminal offenses, from misdemeanors to felonies. When you're facing a criminal offense, you need a competent criminal defense attorney with the experience to fight for you and the compassion to help you get back on track.

Whether it's possession of marijuana or any other controlled substance, larceny, assault, or any other criminal offense, we can help.


Virginia's Driving Under the Influence / Driving While Intoxicated laws are quite complex. Whether the substance is alcohol or drugs, a DWI / DUI  in Virginia is a serious offense. A conviction could impact you for the rest of your life, not only limiting your ability to drive, but it could impact employment, education, and other aspects of your life.

A DWI / DUI can also land you in jail. When your freedom and reputation are at stake, it's essential to hire an attorney with the knowledge and skill to fight for you.


When faced with legal trouble, you want a local lawyer, someone familiar with the local courts and jurisdictions.  Judges and prosecutors in different jurisdictions may apply the laws differently.
