Henrico General District Court

Henrico General District Court consists of three different traffic courts.  This means there are three different judges with three different personalities.  Additionally there are a number of different commonwealths attorneys or prosecutors who handle traffic cases in Henrico.  In Henrico the prosecutors are typically involved in traffic matters.  It is important to retain an attorney who is familiar with the different personalities present in the Henrico 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 points on your driving record, high fines, license suspension, 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.
