In addition to the penalties imposed by the court, your insurance company and the DMV, a reckless driving record can affect your ability to get or keep a job.

Unlike some attorneys, we are not afraid to try your case, if that is the best option for achieving a good outcome. One former client thanked attorney Smith for his “amazing performance in court” and achieving an end result which exceeded his expectations.
