Traffic Violations And DUI/DWI

When you face serious traffic offenses like drunk driving (DUI/DWI) or reckless driving, you need effective and experienced representation. My name is John A. March, and I am a Richmond criminal defense attorney with more than 17 years of experience defending resident and out-of-state drivers.

Reckless Driving Charges Are More Serious Than You Think

Virginia has some of the strictest speeding and reckless driving laws in the United States. If you are driving more than 20 miles per hour over the posted speed limit or driving faster than 80 miles per hour, you can be cited for reckless driving. More than a speeding ticket or certain other traffic infractions, reckless driving is a Class 1 misdemeanor crime that carries up to one year in jail and a $2,500 fine.

If you have been stopped and cited, or received a ticket after a traffic accident, you have options other than simply paying the fine. When you obtain my services, I will defend your rights when you are facing the following:

It's important to understand the costs of not contesting reckless driving and other traffic charges: You acquire points on your license; your insurance skyrockets; you can lose your license; and you could face jail time. As your lawyer, I will help you fight the charges and preserve your record.

Local Representation For Out-Of-State Drivers

A traffic citation or DUI/DWI arrest can be a serious headache for out-of-state motorists. A citation often costs more in terms of time, gas and annoyance to defend yourself than to simply pay the fine. There are times, however, when just paying the fine is not a viable option. It can result in severe insurance rate hikes, a suspended license and other consequences.

If you were cited for a traffic violation in Richmond or one of the surrounding communities, don't assume that paying the fine is your only option. Reach out to me, John A. March, and schedule a consultation by calling 804-554-3729 or by sending an email. When you call, I answer. In addition to traffic defense, I have years of experience defending clients in state and federal courts.
