Richmond, Virginia Speeding Traffic Lawyer

The City of Richmond is located right at the intersection of Powhite Parkway, Interstate 95, Interstate 64, and the Downtown Expressway.   These highways all have one major commonality, their relative speed limits decrease as you approach Richmond.  These four highways account for a significant portion of the traffic related offenses in Richmond.  Mattox Law is ready to help guide you through complicated legal process with knowledgeable representation.  I handle a variety of traffic related offenses including DUI, speeding, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license, and possession of marijuana.

Richmond General District Court consists of two different courts.  This means there are two different judges with two different personalities.  Additionally there are a number of different commonwealths attorneys or prosecutors who handle traffic cases in Richmond.  It is important to retain an attorney who is familiar with the different personalities present in the Richmond 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.

Defending Your Case

To ensure you don’t suffer from the above mentioned consequences please be careful to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced in Richmond.  Each judge can be particular about the way he or she like certain things completed and presented to the court.  I often have my client complete these item prior to court and it is important to everything is completed properly.  Below please find links to blog articles 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 Richmond traffic case.
