Brunswick Virginia Speeding Traffic Lawyer

Brunswick is famous for more than just their fantastic stew; unfortunately, Brunswick County is also rather famous for its strict enforcement of traffic violations.  If you have received a traffic violation in Brunswick, Virginia it is important to speak with an attorney who is familiar with the judge, officers, and prosecutors in order to properly guide you through the sometimes-complicated legal system.  Brunswick has become notorious for their enforcement of traffic violations along US Route 58 and Interstate 85. 

Interstate 85 runs through Brunswick County just north of the North Carolina border.  Both Brunswick deputies and Virginia State Police officers patrol this section of Interstate 85 heavily.  Alternatively, when traveling route 58 it is likely you will run into one of the town of Lawrenceville’s finest. Mattox Law represents individuals charged with traffic crimes and infraction throughout Brunswick County including Alberta, Wyche, Brodnax, Lawrenceville, Ebony, Warfield, Gasburg, and White Plains.

Defending Speeding Cases

Speeding charges in Virginia can vary significantly depending on the nature of the offense.  The most severe cases are often charged as reckless driving by speed, which elevates the offense from a simple traffic infraction to a class 1 misdemeanor.  Although speeding is an infraction rather than a misdemeanor, a conviction can still carry very serious consequences.  A speeding conviction can lead to a license suspension, high fines, points on your driving record, and increased insurance rates.

Trey Mattox has represented hundreds of individuals charged with speeding offenses and has an outstanding record of having those charges reduced or dismissed.  Trey regularly saves Mattox Law clients hundreds of dollars in fines and insurance premiums as well as helping to preserve driving privileges.  Trey is intimately familiar with Virginia speeding laws and what is required of the officer ensuring that all possible legal strategies are pursued.

Brunswick General District Court 

Fortunately, the judge sitting in Brunswick is typically good about working with individuals faced with a traffic related charges, and I am frequently able to negotiate a reduction.  However, the judge is very particular with what he requires for a reduction.  It is extremely important to speak with an attorney who is familiar with Brunswick and how the judge handles his docket.

It is also important to retain counsel who has established very good working relationships with the Brunswick Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office.  The Commonwealth’s Attorney or prosecutor does not typically get involved in speeding or reckless driving charges; however, for more serious offenses such as DUI, Driving on a Suspended License, or Possession of Marijuana, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office plays a prominent role.  It is extremely important to choose an attorney who is very familiar with the Commonwealth’s Attorney prosecuting your case.

Defending Your Case

There are several tasks that I frequently have my clients complete prior to their scheduled court date in order to ensure the best possible outcome.  Alternatively, the judge in Brunswick will often have additional requirements before he is willing to reduce your charge.   This judge requires each of these items to be presented in the proper form.  Failure to follow every requirement can result in a conviction.  When looking for an attorney to represent you please be careful to speak with someone who is knowledgeable of the judge’s rules.  Below please find links to blog articles describing some of the mitigation evidence I use to defend my clients.  Please give me a call or email for addition suggestions on mitigation evidence for your Brunswick traffic case.
