A Speeding Ticket is the most common type of traffic violation and can negatively affect you in many ways. First, you will have to pay fines and court costs if convicted. Second, you will probably have to pay higher
insurance rates if convicted. In some instances, a conviction can cost you thousands of dollars in
increased premiums over time. Third, your Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) driving record will be negatively affected if convicted. Finally, if you are convicted of too many speeding tickets and/or other traffic violations, then your driver's license could be suspended by either DMV or the courts, leaving you with no way to get to work or take care of your family.

Some people don't think they need a Speeding Ticket Lawyer to assist them with their speeding ticket. While this may be true in certain instances, an experienced Virginia Speeding Ticket Attorney can insure that your rights are protected, that you are not intimidated in the courtroom and that you increase your chances of securing a better result than you would be able to obtain for yourself, with fewer points, a lower fine and less hassle. We will examine and analyze your case and use proven strategies to best defend your particular situation.
The state troopers, police officers, and deputy sheriffs who issue speeding tickets usually calculate your speed accurately and can prove their case at trial. Accordingly, we often find it in the best interests of our clients to negotiate or plea bargain your case to achieve the best possible result. However, that is not always possible, due to either allegations of extremely high speeds, cases involving poor driving records, or other various incidents that may block the plea agreement process. In those situations, you will need an accomplished Virginia Traffic Court Attorney to fight your speeding ticket and challenge the evidence against you. We have a clear understanding of Virginia speeding laws, traffic court procedures, procedural and technical defenses, and law enforcement methods of detecting speed such as: RADAR, LIDAR, VASCAR, Aerial Speed Measurement, and use of a police vehicle with a calibrated speedometer.
