NEW KENT COUNTY TRAFFIC LAWYER
All of us have been there. You’re travelling and finally the road opens up, and you increase your speed to make up for lost time. The children in the backseat are fighting, one has to use the bathroom urgently, and the baby just lost her pacifier and now is crying to get out of her seat. Your behind a tractor trailer that can’t seem to stay in his lane let alone the road, and you want to see him in your mirrors and not through your windshield. All it takes is a brief lapse of judgment or a second of inattentiveness, and you have now accelerated too far over the speed limit. Not only that, but you were so preoccupied by your situation that you didn’t even notice the officer running radar in the median. So now instead of having traffic, fighting kids, or a tractor-trailer in your rear view, you now have flashing lights.
If you have received a traffic citation in the New Kent County area, you may be worried about it going on your record and having to pay more in insurance premiums. You’re probably dreading having to go to court and spend hours waiting just to admit guilt, if you are guilty, or stressing as to whether or not the Judge will believe that you are innocent.
I can help you! In most cases, I can go to Court for you and work to get the ticket dismissed or reduced to a lesser offense. I can save you money by keeping the ticket off your driving record, thereby avoiding points which increase insurance payments. I can save you the time and hassle of having to go to court, thus alleviating the need for you to miss time from your job, travel expenses to come back to New Kent, and just the aggravation of travel.
A traffic citation is a serious matter if you already have points on your record. By having an Attorney that practices in the New Kent Court System on a regular basis, you’re telling the Judge and the Prosecutor that you are serious about your case. As your Attorney, I will work to have the ticket dismissed and kept off your record. A favorable settlement would likely mean payment of court costs or attendance in driver safety school. However, if that can’t be reached there may be ways to challenge the evidence, and this is where my 25 plus years of experience pays off for you.
To avoid a lengthy, stressful Court appearance, and to give yourself a chance to keep your driving record clean, please contact me today!.

NEW KENT DUI ATTORNEY
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.
