Prince George Virginia Speeding Traffic Lawyer

From a traffic perspective, Prince George county is uniquely located at the intersection of three major Virginia roadways.  I typically see higher speed cases on Interstates 95 and 295 while route 460 is more known for its tricky speed traps.  In fact, the speed limit along these major thoroughfares in Prince George can vary from as low as 35 miles per hour up to 70 miles per hour.  Mattox Law represents individuals charged with traffic crimes and infractions throughout Prince George County including Disputanta, Fort Lee, New Bohemia, Garysville, Jordan Point, Burrowsville, and Newville.

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.

Prince George General District Court

Prince George typically has traffic court on Mondays and Wednesdays of any given week with two different judges sitting each day.  Each judge is particular in what they like to do in certain situations and what they will and will not accept as evidence in a case.  Failure to properly follow the requirements each judge sets will often result in a conviction.  It is very important to retain an attorney familiar with each judge in order in ensure you get the best possible outcome for your case.  Below please find links to blog articles describing some of the mitigation evidence I use to defend my clients.  Please give me an email trey@mattoxlawpc.com or call (804) 451-6033 for addition suggestions on mitigation evidence for your Prince George traffic case.

It is also important to retain an attorney who has established a very good working relationship with the Prince George 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 offense such as DUI, Driving on a Suspended License, 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.
