Stop. Don’t call every lawyer in the phone book. Don’t call ANYONE yet.
If you’re charged with misdemeanor reckless driving, do yourself a favor and learn about the case FIRST.
What is reckless driving in Virginia?
Reckless driving in Virginia is a class 1 misdemeanor crime. Yes, you’re charged with a crime that’s on the same level as DUI, carrying a concealed weapon, and assault. It’s not just a traffic ticket.
But it’s NOT an offense where you’re definitely going to jail. The punishment can include up to one year of jail, but receiving any jail time is rare. While it’s a serious offense, don’t believe scare tactics by desperate attorneys.
What defenses are available?
That’s chapter 3 of my book! You’ll learn all about the possible defenses that may work for your case. And chapter 4 covers the next critical question: what defenses don’t work?
What else is in the book?
Here’s the complete table of contents. As you can see, this isn’t a 4-page pamphlet that I’m calling a book. It’s a 78-page book that sells on Amazon, but you can download it for free right here.

You may NOT need a lawyer
