Chesterfield Virginia Speeding Attorney

Chesterfield County is located just south of Richmond and has three primary highways, Powhite Parkway, Interstate 95, and State Route 288.  These three highways account for a significant portion of the traffic related offenses in Chesterfield.  Mattox Law is ready to help guide you through complicated legal process with knowledgeable representation.  I handle a variety of traffic related offenses including reckless driving, DUI, driving on a suspended license, speeding, and possession of marijuana.  Mattox Law represents clients charged with traffic crimes and infraction throughout Chesterfield including Manchester, Bon Air, Robious, Midlothian, Bellwood, Ettrick, Matoaca, Chester, Woodlake, Brandermill, Moseley, Enon,  and Meadowbrook.

Chesterfield General District Court consists of four different courtrooms.  This means there are four different judges with four different personalities.  Additionally there are a number of different commonwealth’s attorneys or prosecutors who handle traffic cases in Chesterfield.  It is important to retain an attorney who is familiar with the different personalities present in the Chesterfield court system.

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, points on your driving record, high fines, 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.

Defending Your Case

To ensure you don’t suffer from the above mentioned consequences please be careful to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced in Chesterfield County.  Each judge can be particular about the way he or she like certain things completed and presented to the court.  I often have my client complete these items prior to court and it is important to ensure everything is completed properly.  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 Chesterfield traffic case.

It is also important to retain an attorney who has a very good working relationship with the Chesterfield Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office.  The Commonwealth’s Attorney or prosecutor play a minimal role in standard speeding or reckless driving charges; however, for more serious offense such as Driving on a Suspended License, DUI, 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.
