Protect Your Driving Record

Even the most competent and careful drivers are at risk of breaking traffic laws whenever they get behind the wheel. The world is full of "speed traps" in unexpected places, a few drinks at dinner can lead to drunk driving charges, and routine maintenance issues like a burned-out taillight can trigger traffic stops that give law enforcement officers an excuse to search for more serious offenses.

Every case is different, but most traffic violations carry more serious consequences than just a fine. Even after you've paid your ticket, you may face higher insurance premiums or a strike on your record that may cause you to lose your driver's license after several offenses. And your mobility is threatened, your limited mobility can limit your ability to get to work, run errands, or attend to many other basic tasks in your life.

That's why it's important to work with an experienced lawyer when facing a speeding ticket or any other traffic-related offense. At The Law Office of William B. Vaughan, PLLC, we will tailor a legal strategy that may include seeking reduced charges or a reduced sentence.

Legal Help With Speeding Tickets And Other Traffic Matters

Speeding tickets are an almost inevitable part of driving, but that doesn't mean that drivers have no legal recourse after getting a ticket. Whenever possible, our goal is to get the misdemeanor charges you are facing dropped.

When it is not possible to have a ticket thrown out, we can help you obtain a lower charge or a lower fine.

In Virginia, many speeding offenses are charged as "reckless driving by speed," rather than as a simple speeding ticket — reckless driving is considered a misdemeanor, the same level of offense as a first-time DUI charge. We will work swiftly to fight this charge and protect your driving record.

We also represent those facing charges including:

  • Driving without a license
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Hit and run
  • Eluding police and disregarding an officer's signal to stop
