Local Channel’s, Wtkr Channel 3, report confirms that when it comes to defendants’ charged with Reckless Driving, Virginia Beach Judges are the toughest
WTKR Channel 3 did a report to determine which court in the Hampton Roads area had the toughest traffic judges. The answer: Virginia Beach. This may come as a surprise to the general public, but not for me as I am in the Virginia Beach traffic courts so often and seen first hand how strict the judges can be. A link to the video report is here.
Going 85 miles an hour? A defendant in the WTKR report got 10 days of active jail time.
In the report a defendant, a paramedic and national guardsman, going 85 miles an hour was given 10 days of active jail time. Just as bad, a conviction by itself results in a permanent criminal conviction that will never go away .

A Different Type of Lawyer
What makes me different than other lawyers? With regard to criminal lawyers, its simple, I am not a typical criminal lawyer… I am a traffic-criminal lawyer. What is the difference you may wonder? Well criminal lawyers handle all kinds of criminal cases ranging from arson to robbery. They are akin to a family doctor, whose practice is general. A family doctor can tell you that you may suffer from cancer but would you want him to actually handle your surgery? In a same fashion, my main focus is on the small part of the criminal legal field that touches upon traffic law. Doing traffic law, day in and day out, gives me the benefit of getting to know what works in front of what traffic judges, get to know the troopers and local cops, do exclusive research in dealing with traffic law and come up with creative defenses and arguments.
