Being charged with reckless driving is a serious matter that needs to be addressed in a serious fashion. A reckless driving charge is not simply another traffic ticket; it is a class-1 misdemeanor that will significantly affect your insurance costs. You need to take steps to defend yourself, your rights and your driving privileges.
Securing the representation of a skilled attorney who understands how to construct a solid defense of your rights is the best option for ensuring that you are able to secure the best possible resolution to your case.

Virginia's Courts have made it clear that the happening of an accident does not mean that reckless driving has occurred. The Government still must prove how the accident occurred and how your driving conduct was reckless, and your attorney must hold the Government to its burden of proof.
Mounting an effective defense is necessary because of the scope of possible penalties that you are facing if convicted of reckless driving. The penalties include:
- Up to one year in jail
- Up to $2,500 in fines
- Six DMV points on your driver's license
- Driver's license suspension of up to six months
- Increased auto insurance rates or cancellation
