Traffic Violations In Virginia

Reckless driving, DUI and other traffic tickets can have serious consequences. You could lose your driver’s license, face skyrocketing insurance costs and even face jail time in some situations. Do not make the mistake of fighting traffic charges without an experienced defense attorney’s help.

At FerrisWinder, PLLC in Richmond, VA, we have extensive experience handling traffic defense for clients. We stay on the cutting edge of emerging case law and present creative defenses for our clients in these situations.

In Virginia, reckless driving is legally defined in two ways:

  • Driving over 80 mph
  • Driving more than 20 mph over the posted speed limit

A charge of reckless driving can often lead to hefty fines and loss of driving privileges upon conviction. As your attorney, we will fight to minimize your exposure to these consequences and others. As soon as possible, it is wise to contact a skilled lawyer at FerrisWinder, PLLC.


It is not uncommon for vacationers or professional drivers to violate traffic laws they are not accustomed to. Unfamiliar roads and rapidly changing speed zones can lead to a speeding or reckless driving charge. In these situations, it is wise to contact our firm. Out-of-state drivers might have the option to file a Motion to Waive Appearance in order to save time and effort. We can examine your situation and advise you on your options. Count on us to fight to protect your driving privileges


At FerrisWinder, PLLC, an experienced lawyer will be available at the firm between 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. to give you a free consultation. Too often people simply pay their traffic tickets or plead guilty because they do not know about their defense options.
