Alexandria traffic defense lawyer, Christopher Brown is leading his firm in expanding upon their wide variety of legal services and will now also focus on providing traffic defense services in Alexandria. —
A reckless driving charge in Virginia is considered a class 1 misdemeanor. If a person is convicted and charged of reckless driving they could receive a combination of the following:
- Fine up to $2,500,
- License suspension up to six months,
- Jail up to 12 months
Long term consequences such as an increase in car insurance premium, loss of job, permanent criminal record, and demerit points. Further, these consequences could damage a person's ability to gain employment or threaten security clearance - a reality for many government workers in the Washington D.C. area.
The specific punishment a person receives for reckless driving would depend on variety of circumstances including driving record and the judge hearing the case. Navigating the challenging court system for such a serious charge can be extremely difficult. That is why it is wise to have a traffic defense lawyer examine the case, the relevant facts, and develop a case.
Driving in Alexandria can be difficult due to the urban nature of the area and the amount of drivers on the road. The Brown Firm PLLC is very pleased to offer traffic defense services to Alexandria residents who may be facing a reckless driving conviction.
