EXPERIENCED CHESTERFIELD DUI LAWYER

 

Chesterfield County Traffic Tickets are an annoyance and a problem. When you are found to be guilty of the offense, you get points on your license and face higher insurance premiums, and in some cases, jail time, based on the laws in Chesterfield County. If you fail to pay the fines ordered by the court in a timely manner, you can be arrested and put in jail until the matter is settled.
Some traffic violations are serious criminal offenses and require immediate action by an experienced Chesterfield Traffic Lawyer. These violations include offenses such as Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Felonious Hit & Run, and other serious charges. For commercial drivers, traffic offenses can lead to a loss of their CDL, whether in a commercial vehicle or a personal vehicle, and an end to a career, which can result in a financial instability.
Even though Chesterfield traffic tickets may seem to be a minor matter, in many cases there are requirements imposed by the court that you must handle correctly or face repercussions. Missing court dates can lead to a bench warrant that means you will be arrested any time, any place if you are stopped by law enforcement. In serious offenses, you may be facing the full sentence in jail if you fail to handle the court date correctly. For those who are facing suspended license issues, there are a variety of situations that require the assistance of an experienced Traffic Lawyer.
Don’t take chances with your future. Ensure that you have experienced legal representation defending your case and guiding you through the process. Each case is strategically evaluated and a defense strategy is developed to your individual needs. We are here to help!

RECKLESS DRIVING LAWYER CHESTERFIELD

 

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 Premium Increases.
  • Jail Time Depending On Speed And Other Circumstances.
  • Potential License Suspension.
  • Potential Employment Consequences.

 

 


CHESTERFIELD DWI LAWYER

 

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!

HIT AND RUN LAWYER CHESTERFIELD

Virginia requires any driver involved in an accident involving injury to people or the property of others to make a timely report, regardless of whether the accident happened on a public street or highway or on private property, and regardless of the dollar amount of damage. Any driver or passenger age 16 or older must make a report or ensure a report is made. Under some circumstances, failing to make a report can result in a felony criminal record, years in prison, and thousands of dollars in fines. The exception is when it’s a single-car accident and the only damage is to the driver’s own vehicle.
Cases involving hit-and-run or leaving the scene of an accident charges in Virginia can be complex. A lot of factors are considered when determining the severity of the charge and the penalties upon conviction. Consulting an experienced Chesterfield Traffic Lawyer may be critical to challenging the often-circumstantial evidence presented in hit-and-run cases, and to avoiding lengthy jail time, hefty fines, or loss of driving privileges.

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.

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.
