Do I need to hire a Virginia lawyer if I have been accused of Reckless Driving in Virginia?

As a Virginia Reckless Driving Lawyer, the obvious response from me is going to be:  not only do you need to hire a lawyer, you need to hire Manassas, Virginia Reckless Driving Lawyer, T. Kevin Wilson and The Wilson Law Firm!  However, vested interest aside, in my opinion everyone accused of a Virginia Reckless Driving offense should hire an experienced, successful and reputable Virginia Reckless Driving Lawyer - if for no other reason than because the consequences of failing to do so can be potentially life changing.

The offense of Reckless Driving in Virginia is a wolf in sheep's clothing.  Most people simply do not understand how serious a Virginia Reckless Driving offense is.  Perhaps it's because people are generally just given a ticket and allowed to go on their way; or perhaps it's because people have heard about others coming to court, pleading guilty and simply having a fine imposed.  Whatever the reason, people don't seem to understand that a Virginia Reckless Driving is a misdemeanor criminal offense which falls in the same category as DUI, Assault and Battery and Petit Larceny - and is punished more severely than Possession of Marijuana.

Being convicted of a Virginia Reckless Driving will result in a permanent criminal record and can result in the offender paying a fine, suffering a license suspension, being sentenced to jail, having insurance rates increased, having demerit points assessed by the Virginia DMV, losing a security clearance, losing a job and even a home.  

If you have been accused of a Virginia Reckless Driving offense, Manassas, Virginia Reckless Driving Lawyer, T. Kevin Wilson and The Wilson Law Firm can help you.
