Speeding

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, points on your driving record, high fines, 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.

When representing a client for speeding, Trey analyzes every aspect of the case searching for errors made by the officer which can be used as a defense to the case.  Additionally, Trey will insist on his clients completing certain tasks prior to the court date in order to present evidence in mitigation of the offense.  Some of the tasks Trey frequently has his clients complete include driving school; community service; speedometer calibrations.  This mitigation evidence is something that not all attorneys require and can often lead to better results in court. 

Mattox Law represents individuals charged with speeding offense who are both Virginia drivers as well as out of state drivers.  All but five states belong to an Interstate Drivers License Compact, which mandates that these member states communicate traffic convictions between states.  Therefore, the consequences of a speeding conviction in Virginia can be extended to your home state, which can bring even more serious punishments.  One example would be North Carolina where your license can be suspended upon a conviction for speeding in excess of 55 mph and more that 15 mph over the speed limit.

Trey represents clients charged with speeding and reckless driving cases throughout the commonwealth of Virginia.  He has become very familiar with the courts he appears in regularly and has established very good working relationships with the judges, prosecutors, officers, and clerks in these jurisdictions.  Some of the courts Trey appears in regularly include: Stafford, Fredericksburg, Caroline, Hanover, Henrico, Richmond, Chesterfield, Prince George, Hopewell, Petersburg, Dinwiddie, Brunswick, Greensville, Emporia, Sussex, and New Kent Counties.
