Traffic Violations

Traffic violations are serious in Virginia, especially if you already have convictions for other traffic-related offenses on your record. The penalties for these charges can be severe.

At the law office of Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, we have the resources and experience to help clients avoid making a serious situation worse. Our lawyers can assist you with charges including:

  • Reckless driving
  • Disregard of signs
  • Speeding
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license
  • First-time and repeat DUI/DWI offenses
  • Hit-and-run
  • Eluding the police
  • Passing a loading/unloading school bus
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Following too close

We explore alternatives to potentially harsh penalties in cases involving traffic violations charges. In certain instances, enrollment in driver's training courses, volunteering for community service, or seeking counseling for anger and substance addiction issues may convince the court to reduce your sentence or the charges against you. In other cases, we may be able to call into question the constitutionality of the arresting officers' actions.

What Are The Consequences?

While each case is different, traffic violations can have serious consequences. For example, a reckless driving conviction may include:

  • High fines (up to $2,500)
  • 12 months jail
  • License suspension or license revocation
  • Points on your driving record
  • Rising insurance rates
  • A record

Avoid Additional Legal Complications

Our attorneys have an in-depth understanding of proper procedures when charging someone with traffic violations, including what sorts of issues can call charges into question, and what efforts should be made when negotiating for a reduction in charges or sentencing. By analyzing dashboard camera footage from an officer's squad car, interviewing eyewitnesses and collecting other evidence, we may be able to undermine the validity of the charge against you or have it dismissed altogether.
