Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ALII GoldResponsive Law

I am a native Bristolian who obtained my undergraduate degree from University of Virginia in 1981. I obtained my law degree from Duke University, graduating in the top ten percent of my class. Prior to returning to the Tri-Cities, I practiced with large litigation law firms in Dallas, Texas and Washington, D.C. I have extensive litigation experience, including trying cases in front of a jury, and arguing appeals, in Virginia, Tennessee and federal courts. I have argued twice before the nine justices of the United States Supreme Court. I have also successfully reached settlements for my clients in dozens of cases, ranging from multimillion dollar settlements to small fender-bender cases of a few thousand dollars. I reside in Abingdon, Virginia with my wife and children. I enjoy tennis.

Q. I had my cruise control on 63. The police officer said I was going 72 according to the radar gun. Could radar be wrong
A: It is unlikely that the radar that the officer was using was not functioning properly; it would also be difficult to prove this in court as well. If you believe that you were not going as fast as the officer cited you for, I would recommend getting your speedometer calibrated on your vehicle. If your speedometer is off by a several mph, it may be enough for the judge to dismiss your ticket. If you decide to not get your speedometer calibrated, I would recommend contacting a local traffic attorney to plan for an alternative defense.
