Spotsylvania Virginia Speeding Traffic Lawyer

Spotsylvania County is located along interstate 95 just north of Caroline County and just south of the City of Fredericksburg, Virginia.  The speed limit on interstate 95 through the majority of Spotsylvania is 70 miles per hour.  Therefore, many of my clients are faced with a reckless driving charge for traveling over 80 miles per hour in a 70 mile per hour zone.  Mattox Law also represents clients with speeding, possession of marijuana, underage possession of alcohol, DUI, following too close, driving on a suspended license, and failure to maintain control.  Mattox Law represent individuals charged with traffic crimes and infractions throughout Spotsylvania county including Belmont, Margo, Brandon, Arcadia, Massaponax, Lewiston, McHenry, Chancellorsville, Spotsylvania Courthouse, and Thornburg.

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, 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.

Defending Your Case

It is important to retain counsel who has established very good working relationships with the Spotsylvania Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office.  The Commonwealth’s Attorney or prosecutor does not typically get involved in speeding or reckless driving charges under 100 miles per hour; however, for more serious offenses 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.

There are several tasks that I frequently have my clients complete prior to their scheduled court date in order to ensure the best possible outcome.  Alternatively, the judge will often have additional requirements before he is willing to reduce your charge.   The judge requires each of these items to be presented in the proper form.  Failure to follow every requirement can result in a conviction.  When looking for an attorney to represent you please be careful to speak with someone who is knowledgeable of the judge rules.  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 Spotsylvania traffic case.
