Aggressive Hampton Reckless Driving Attorney
The attorneys at Karin Riley Porter Attorney at Law understand that no two reckless driving cases are the same. There are many different things you could have done to warrant this charge. According to Virginia law, reckless driving is is either driving that can be defined as “reckless” or that which poses a danger to people or property. It’s easy to see how one officer could interpret your driving behavior differently than the next with this sort of broad definition. And this is precisely why some reckless driving cases are ultimately thrown out of court. Sometimes an overzealous officer should have handed you a ticket rather than sent you to court. This isn’t true in all cases, but is something a reckless driving attorney with our firm will look into.
