Reckless driving reduced. Leavitt and Martin are fantastic lawyers. Their knowledge and expertise stands head and shoulders above their competition. They have helped me with 2 traffic tickets in the past. One being a reckless driving ticket I received while going 82 in a 70. They were able to get that ticket removed from my record and reduced to a non moving violation. They know what they are doing and give you clear guidance as to what is required and expected of you throughout the process. I really couldnt be happier with both outcomes that i received through them. They have my highest recommendation.

Legal Answers
248 Questions Answered
Q. How many points violation is my speeding ticket (46.2-870)? Should I go to court, and if I go, should I get a lawyer?
A: Both reckless driving and speeding 20 mph or more written as a traffic infraction are the maximum 6 demerit points on your driving record. Your best path is to hire a lawyer or represent yourself as you see fit and try to get the case reduced/dismissed. Generally hiring a lawyer is better as a good traffic attorney will be equipped to get the best result and tell you what to do before court. Lawyers also are able to negotiate with prosecutors whereas I don't know of any prosecutor who will talk to someone who does not have an attorney.
Q. Could you explain what certain highways refer too under VA code 46-2-826. Received ticket failing to stop
A: Generally it is referring to any public road that you are entering on...
Q. is the front plate primary offense or secondary?
A: I believe you are incorrect. 46.2-711 is a primary offense in my opinion, however you may be able to get it dismissed in court with an attorney or by representing yourself upon showing proof of compliance, depending on the judge.
