Greensville Virginia Speeding Traffic Lawyer

Greensville is one of the most notorious “speed traps” in Virginia.  Greensville is located just north of the North Carolina border as you enter Virginia.  As such, Interstate 95 runs through the entirety of Greensville County.  The Greensville Sheriffs Department and Virginia State Troopers have become infamous for their extremely strict enforcement of traffic related offenses in Greensville County, Virginia.  Mattox Law represents clients who have received traffic violations throughout the Greensville area including Purdy, Brink, Emporia, Radium, Moonlight, Durand, Skippers, and Jarratt.

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.

Greensville General District Court

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

It is also important to retain an attorney who has a very good working relationship with the Greensville Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office.  The Commonwealth’s Attorney or prosecutor does not typically get involved in reckless driving or speeding charges; however, for more serious offenses 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.

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, this 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, be careful to speak with someone who is knowledgeable of the judge’s rules.  Below please find links describing some of the mitigation evidence I use to defend my clients.  Please give me a call or email for additional suggestions on mitigation evidence for your Greensville traffic case.
