Traffic Violations

Dedicated to Helping Clients

If you have been cited with a traffic violation, it is imperative that you retain an attorney to defend your rights.  If a traffic ticket is not contested, it is automatically placed on your driving record, resulting in further potential consequences, such as suspension or revocation of driving privileges, and possible higher insurance rates.  Despite this, only a small percentage of drivers actually challenge traffic tickets.

When a traffic violation conviction is placed on your driving record, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will assign demerit points to your driver’s license.  The points are set forth in the Section 46.2-492 of the Code of Virginia, and are based upon the severity of the traffic violation.

When too many points accumulate, your driver’s license may be suspended or revoked, you may be required to submit to further driver training classes, and your insurance rates will likely increase.  Therefore, it is critical to take advantage of your right to contest every traffic ticket you receive, and to have experienced traffic/speeding ticket defense attorney represent you.  In order to protect your driving record, and driving privileges, contact us to speak with a traffic violations defense attorney.

Our Process

Step 1

Initial Review and Development of Litigation Plan

The client will meet with the attorney to review the current status of the case, develop a plan of action, determine a budget, and formulate a timetable for resolution. The attorney will discuss the client’s specific goals, review any relevant caselaw or statutes related to the litigation and answer the clients questions about the process.

Step 2

Pleadings, Discovery, and Motions

Being party to a lawsuit requires ongoing effort to organize your case through written documents that are submitted to the court and opposing parties. It also may require court appearances to argue pretrial motions. During this stage, we will prepare any pleadings to be submitted to the court, draft discovery requests, responses and objections, issue subpoenas, conduction depositions, and prepare and argue any pretrial motions. This stage typically occupies 70-80% of the total timeline for your case.

Step 3

Trial Preparation and Settlement Negotiations

This stage includes review of all relevant evidence, preparation of any potential witnesses and the formulation of trial strategy. Our experienced staff will assist in the assembly of trial notebooks that include all documents you intend to present at trial. During this stage, settlement negotiations may take place in an effort to resolve your case without a trial if it is possible.

Step 4

Trial

If your case cannot be resolved through negotiation, a trial will be required. Based upon the plan we develop with you, we will present the evidence and witnesses that we have prepared to present your case in the light most favorable to you. Trials can sometimes have unpredictable outcomes. However, when you hire the Reed Law Firm, you can be confident that the evidence, arguments, and testimony you want to have heard will be presented in a coherent, organized, and compelling way to provide you with the best possible opportunity to win your case.
