CHARLES CITY COUNTY TRAFFIC COURT

 

Don’t make the mistake of thinking your traffic citation is minor. Even seemingly minor traffic citations can lead to serious penalties, especially for subsequent citations. Always consult an attorney about your ticket. If you pay up without a fight, you’re simply pleading guilty!

In Virginia, the penalties for traffic offenses vary by locale. If you are a repeat offender or if anyone was injured as a result of your actions, then you will be facing much harsher penalties.

Paying your ticket is not your only option. Few people realize that there are many ways to beat a traffic citation. With the help of an experienced Virginia traffic ticket lawyer, you can effectively fight your traffic citations and minimize the penalties you are facing..

The Charles City County Court System can be intimidating for those who are unfamiliar with the Legal System. As your Attorney, my job is to guide you through every step and to effectively resolve your legal issues, while also making you feel as comfortable as possible.


GET THE ATTENTION YOUR CASE DESERVES!

 

Being aware that you do have legal options should make you feel empowered knowing that you can take a course of action during this stressful experience.  We can prepare a defense that fits your unique situation, needs, and goals. By retaining the assistance of a proven attorney, you can be confident that our experience and insight can be used to your advantage. Let us help you cut through the confusion.


 

RECKLESS DRIVING TICKET

 

There are two forms of Reckless Driving in Virginia.  There is Reckless Driving – General and Reckless Driving – Speed. The problem with both of these charges is that they are both are Class 1 Misdemeanors, punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a $2,500.00 fine, as well as, it adds six points to your driving record.  Prepayment of a Reckless Driving ticket is essentially you pleading guilty to a criminal offense.  The penalties you face could be significant, including:

 

  • A fine up to $2,500.00.
  • A Misdemeanor conviction that is transferable to other states.
  • Six points on your Virginia License.
  • Insurance increases.
  • Jail time depending on speed and other circumstances.
  • Potential License Suspension.
  • Potential employment consequences.

 


DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE (DUI) TICKET

officer

The most commonly committed crime in the United States today is drunk driving. People who would otherwise never come into contact with the criminal justice system can find themselves under arrest because they have had “one too many.”

 

The legal limit for Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) while driving in Virginia is .08. This amount can easily be reached with as little as three beers. The penalties for drunk driving in Virginia can be numerous and severe. If you are convicted of this type of offense, you may lose your driving privileges.

 

We will examine the facts of your case and determine the answers to some of these key components that may impact the outcome of your case.  We will:

•  Explore if the arresting officer had sufficient cause to stop your vehicle.

•  Determine whether the officer who performed the stop on your vehicle, properly administered the breath or blood test, as well as, the field sobriety test.

•  Get evidence against you suppressed if it was in fact, unlawfully obtained.

•  Depending on the specifics of your arrest and processing, we will firmly litigate a potential dismissal, not guilty verdict upon trial, or settle a favorable plea agreement that enables you to avoid a criminal conviction.

 

Criminal charges should never be taken lightly, and you should not make the mistake of thinking that the potential penalties of this offense will not be severe just because you may have no previous record. You deserve an attorney who will fight to safeguard your rights and ensure that everything that can be done for your defense will be done for your defense. I will be that attorney for you.


Time is of the essence!

If you have been charged with DUI/DWI, you need aggressive and effective criminal defense. Do not wait to protect your rights or risk jail time, excessive fines or loss of your license. I can help you keep your life together. CALL TODAY!

 


SPEEDING TICKET

 

If you are charged with Speeding, the worst thing you can do is not take it serious.  A conviction for Speeding leads to demerit points on your driving record, fines and Court costs, depending on your state you could be facing a possible license suspension, and  potential insurance increases. Our straightforward approach is what makes the difference in your case.

As a truck driver with a CDL, I chose Robert LIchtenstein because he valued my CDL as much as I did. He went to bat for me and not only did he exceed my expectations, but he gained a client for life. Thank you so much!

I had enough to worry about before my military deployment and thank you so much for getting my ticket taken care of without my appearance. I was worried that I was going to have to drive up from NC, but you took care of it without my appearance and helped alleviate some of my worries. If I need anyone in the future, I know where to go.

Vindication

I was ticketed for an accident that I didn't even cause. My insurance company paid for the other vehicle, but I was given a ticket to appear in court. I had never been in trouble before, and I was extremely nervous.  Robert appeared in court with me and I was finally able to get vindication, as the accident was not my fault. Thank you so much.

Couldn’t Be Happier

Living in New Hampshire I was nervous about finding an attorney in Virginia. I attempted to contact several attorneys before talking to Chris in this office. He took time with me and reminded me of my grandson. After speaking with this office, my nervousness and fears were diminished and Robert got my traffic matter handled without my appearance. I am very appreciative. When you call ask for Chris, he was great with me. Blessings to your firm from New Hampshire.
