Henrico General District Court

 Henrico General District Court consists of three different judges spread across three different traffic courts.  These three judges have three very different personalities.  Additionally, there are a number of different commonwealths attorneys or prosecutors who are also involved in traffic cases.  It is important to retain an attorney who is aquainted with the different personalities present in the Henrico court system.

Reckless Driving

 Reckless Driving is the primary offenses I see in Henrico.  The severity of this offense comes as quite a surprise to many of my clients.  The most prevalent reckless driving statute is Virginia Code § 46.2-862 Exceeding Speed Limit.  This statute defines reckless driving as:

A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who drives a motor vehicle on the highways in the Commonwealth (i) at a speed of twenty miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable maximum speed limit or (ii) in excess of eighty miles per hour regardless of the applicable maximum speed limit.

 As a class 1 misdemeanor, reckless driving carries very significant penalties including a six month license suspension, $2,500 fine, and 12 months in jail.  There are also several secondary consequences such as:

  • Increased insurance premiums costing you hundreds of dollars!
  • Failed criminal background checks affecting employment and security clearance opportunities!
  • Points on your driving record lead to license suspensions!

It is vital you retain a reckless driving lawyer who is both knowledgeable and experienced in Henrico County.  Below please find links to blog articles describing some of the mitigation evidence used to defend my clients.  I often have my client complete some of the items listed below prior to court. It is important to ensure everything is completed properly. Each judge can be particular about the way he or she likes certain things completed and presented to the court.  Please give me a call at (804)-451-6033 or email me at trey@mattoxlawpc.com for additional suggestions on representation for your Henrico traffic case.
