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.

Below we feature a sampling of case results for September and October of 2020. We avoided reckless driving convictions for a number of high speed cases, involving speeds as high as 105 mph! We avoided convictions for criminal charges such as: DUI, reckless driving by speed, eluding the police (felony) and eluding the police (misdemeanor), no operator’s license, and a misdemeanor tunnel height violation in Hampton. Reckless driving dismissals occurred in cities such as Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Suffolk, Southampton, and Hampton.
