Dinwiddie County Virginia Speeding Traffic Lawyer

Dinwiddie County is uniquely located on Interstate 85 just south of the Interstate 95 and Interstate 85 interchange.   This section of Interstate 85 proves to be especially tricky to motorists unfamiliar with the area.  The speed limit on Interstate 85 through Dinwiddie ranges from 55 miles per hour to 70 miles per hour.  Many of my clients find themselves in the unfortunate position of missing one sign and unintentionally speeding.  Both Dinwiddie Sherriff’s deputies and Virginia State Troopers patrol this section of Interstate 85 heavily and routinely issue tickets to individuals in this situation.   Fortunately, the judge in Dinwiddie will take into consideration the direction of travel and whether the speed limit was climbing or falling.  If the individual was traveling north and thus through progressively slower speed zones, this judge will often give a little bit of a better break.  Therefore, it is very important to pick an attorney who is very familiar with Dinwiddie and the judge’s peculiarities.  Mattox Law represents clients charged with traffic crimes and infractions throughout Dinwiddie County including Ammon, Darvils, DeWitt, Ford, Wilsons, Carson, Sutherland, and McKenney.

Defending Speeding Cases in Dinwiddie County

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 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

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 will often have additional requirements before he is willing to reduce your charge.   The 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 this 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 (804) 451-6033 or email trey@mattoxlawpc.com for additional suggestions on mitigation evidence for your Dinwiddie traffic case.

Dinwiddie General District Court 

Fortunately, the judge in Dinwiddie is typically good about working with individuals charged with traffic violations, and I am frequently able to negotiate a reduction.  However, this judge, like most judges, has certain peculiarities that are important to be aware of in order to obtain the best possible outcome for your case. It is extremely important to speak with an attorney who is familiar with Dinwiddie and how this judge handles his docket.

It is also important to note that I have established a very good working relationships with the Dinwiddie 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 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.
