At Ronald E. Smith, P.C., we have decades of combined experience defending clients against a wide range of traffic violations. We understand the serious nature of a conviction to both your driving record and your employment opportunities in the future. It is our goal to fully examine the charge and develop an effective defense that minimizes your exposure to penalties.
This Type of Charge Includes Both Misdemeanor & Felony Aspects
In Virginia, the eluding statute encompasses both misdemeanor and felony aspects of the charge. Most often, if the reckless driving resulted in serious injury, it will be a class six felony. We strive to avoid the conviction of a felony and get the charge adjusted to a lesser offense. These charges rely heavily on the facts of the case. We will thoroughly examine the police report and interview witnesses to gain a clear understanding of the sequence of events. These cases tend to be very fact specific and clients benefit from an experienced attorney who approaches each case with nearly unparalleled attention to detail. Contact our firm to schedule a consultation.
