DISCLAIMER – EACH CASE IS UNIQUE AND CASE RESULTS DEPEND ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL SITUATION. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE UNDERTAKEN BY THE LAWYER.
- January 3, 2018, Hampton General District Court, Charge: Reckless Driving for crashing into a building. Disposition: Dismissed on the merits of the case!
- January 9, 2018, Newport News General District Court, Charge: Reckless driving at 84/60. Disposition: Dismissed. (My trusted associate handled this case for us.)
- January 10, 2018, Norfolk General District Court, Charge: Reckless Driving at 103/55. Disposition: All suspended jail time and no license suspension!
- January 11, 2018, Virginia Beach General District Court, Charge: Reckless Driving at 80/55. Disposition: Dismissed. Dismissible error in the laser calibrations the Trooper had.
Below is a screen shot for another individual who hired a different attorney (who shall remain nameless), but that attorney missed the error that I found, even though the same laser equipment was used, so his client ended up with a speeding ticket on her record and a fine with court costs.
- January 11, 2018, Virginia Beach General District Court, Charge: Reckless driving by speed at 79/55. Disposition: Dismissed. We reopened a conviction from 2016 that had procedural issues and got an unfair conviction reopened and dismissed.
- January 11, 2018, Northampton General District Court, Charges for two different clients: Reckless driving by speed at 101/55. Disposition: 90 days of jail all suspended (no active jail time), 6 month license suspension in Virginia (Clients not licensed here). We represented two brothers who missed their court dates and were picked up by police in New Jersey. The judge didn’t give them additional jail time since they served time in New Jersey while awaiting extradition. I worked with the Northampton County prosecutor to help get these brothers out of jail in New Jersey as soon as possible. Brother Wayne’s case featured here.
Brother David’s case is featured here (He got the same favorable disposition):
