How Can You Help My Case?

Reckless driving is not just a simple traffic ticket.  There are very reasonable, effective defenses that can be employed to protect your criminal record and driving record.

Can I Help My Attorney Defend Me Against Virginia Reckless Driving Charges?

 

After talking to an experienced criminal and traffic defense lawyer, your Reckless Driving attorney may recommend that you take some of the following actions:

 

Get a copy of your Virginia driving record prior to court date

 

First, you may be requested to obtain a copy of your current driving record from the state where you are licensed. After reviewing your record, your attorney can provide you with an assessment of what risks you may face in court and what potential difficulties may prevent a successful resolution of your case. For instance, if you have a prior DUI, Reckless Driving charge, or multiple speeding tickets, resolving you case in Fairfax may be more difficult than if you had a perfect record.

 

If recommended by your lawyer, have your vehicle’s speedometer calibrated before your Reckless Driving trial.

 

You should not necessarily do this without talking to an attorney beforehand. If you choose The Gordon Law Firm to be your Virginia reckless driving lawyers, we will direct you to automobile mechanics that have “dynamometers”. A dynamometer is like a treadmill. A trained mechanic runs the speed of the treadmill from 10 to 65 mph or more and compares the dynamometer reading to what your vehicle’s speedometer is telling the car’s owner.
