You have no time to waste. You want your reckless driving charge to be taken care of as fairly and as quickly as possible so that you can move on with your life. For many people who have been charged with reckless driving in Virginia, meeting with a reckless driving attorney is an important first step in the process of resolving the criminal charges that they face.
Make That Meeting With a Reckless Driving a Lawyer a Productive One
You don’t have to come to your initial consultation ready to lead the meeting—your lawyer will guide you every step of the way. However, you should come prepared for your initial consultation and ready to work. You can do that by:
Telling the truth. Even if the truth makes you look bad, it is important to be honest with your lawyer about what happened so that your lawyer can provide you with accurate advice and prepare to defend you against the Commonwealth’s charges.
Bringing the ticket and any documentation or evidence you have with you. This will provide valuable information to your lawyer about the charges against you and about what happened. Your cell phone, GPS, and other devices may have important information that is relevant to your case.
Cooperating with your lawyer. Answer the questions—even the hard ones—and take notes about what documentation or information your lawyer needs from you. Additionally, ask questions—even the hard ones—so that you have a full understanding of what is going to happen after your first meeting.
If you are more comfortable, you may bring a friend or relative with you. In some cases, however, that person may be asked to leave the room so that anything that you say to your lawyer may be protected by attorney-client privilege.
While your meeting is important, it should not be intimidating. You and your lawyer are working together, as a team, to protect your rights and see that justice is done. Your lawyer is not judging you, but instead is trying to help you.
