Reckless Driving - Loudoun County, VA

Guys,
I got a reckless driving ticket in Loudon county today for doing 70 in a 40 speed limit zone.
Court date is in June.
Any good lawyers who could help reduce this to a speeding ticket?
Thanks for your help!
MM

That sucks man.....really.

Try Bradley Haywood, He got my Son off/significantly reduced on a whole bunch of stupid shit Son's do that Dad's pay for. He was facing 1 Felony, 5 misdemeanors and driving without a license on Federal Land (making it a Federal Crime) and Brad go it all reduced to 2 Misdemeanors. Mind you these weren't all traffic related but the traffic related one got reduced to a fine.

Don't have any good advise on representation, but one thing for sure is, DO NOT walk into court without one! Loudoun Co. and VA for that matter, is a tough state to get nailed in for not following driving laws. But we can openly carry assault weapons though!

You can get a lawyer if you want, but if you weren't a complete dick to the officer and you have a clean driving record, try this: Go through a driver education course before your court date and get a copy of your driving record. Dress nicely the day of court and bring your certificate from the course as well as the driving record. Be polite and succinct, apologize for your indiscretion and identify you went to a school to remind yourself of good driving habits, also provide your driving history and how you have been a good driver and regret your action. This is up to you, but you could identify you were still getting used to the car's much higher performance than your.......much lesser previous car. Good luck and remember to save the antics for the track...........or don't get caught.

This is how I got my reckless ticket on my motorcycle dismissed sans the lawyer. As soon as I got my ticket, I received twenty letters from those vultures. I also never said anything about "getting used to the higher performance" because I was used to it. When it was my turn, the officer started it off by saying I was extremely polite and forthcoming.
