Experienced Norfolk Reckless Driving Offense Lawyers
In the Virginia Beach jurisdiction, receiving a ticket for reckless driving carries significant consequences — it is a Class 1 misdemeanor, and may result in high fines, driving restrictions or even jail time. Moreover, any traffic violation will add insurance points to your license, driving up your premiums and perhaps leading to a complete license suspension altogether.

We understand the impact a serious traffic violation can have on your life. For example, if your license is revoked, you will not be able to get to and from work, bring your kids to school or run your errands. That is why we fight hard to protect your rights and driving privileges.
Strong Defense Against Reckless Driving Charges
Many people, especially tourists and vacationers, do not realize that in the state of Virginia, driving 20 mph or more over the posted speed limit is considered reckless driving. Speeding at or in excess of 80 mph on any roads — including Interstate highways such as I-64, I-264 or I-664 — is also considered reckless driving. As a Class 1 misdemeanor, this means that if convicted, you could face:
- Up to $2,500 in fines
- Up to six months in jail
- Increased points against your license
- Higher insurance premiums
