Just got off the phone with Mr. Kibria. Definitely can tell he cares about getting fair results for his clients from the way he handles himself on the phone as well as in person. He doesn’t just spit out a price like other attorneys, he actually hears you out. Also his prices are at least 30% lower than any other quotes I’ve gotten in the city. I don’t know why you’d go anywhere else!read more

Mr. Kibria and his firm are amazing. I can’t say enough. Initially I was with a public defender. Although I had met and consulted with Mr. Kibria I decided to stay with the public defender figuring it was all the same with any lawyer. I was so wrong. My public defender was forcing me to eat a bs charge and i basically thought I had no choice but to agree. Weeks later when I was in court ready to eat the charge, Mr. Kibria saw me an asked what I was doing. I told him and he said I was crazy to eat a charge given the facts of my case. He said he would get my case dismissed. He took my case right then and there and requested a dismissal,l. In fact he got the government to agree to dismissal even before I had paid him. He got my case dismissed as he said he would. Unbelievable. He is the best defense attorney in Washington DC bar none. If you need a defense lawyer in dc don’t bother calling anyone else.read more

Alexandria Reckless Driving & Traffic Lawyer

It is very important to hire a lawyer to represent you if you have been charged with reckless driving in Alexandria Virginia because reckless driving is a misdemeanor offense. A experienced lawyer can help you avoid the potentially harsh consequences of a reckless driving conviction. A good attorney will know which arguments are effective and which arguments are not. They will also have experience negotiating with the prosecutors in the jurisdiction. Alexandria reckless driving lawyer Justin Ervin has considerable experience and expertise with reckless driving cases.

Reckless Driving is a misdemeanor traffic offense, and is criminalized by VA Code 46.2-862, which states that a person shall be guilty of Reckless Driving if driving a motor vehicle on a Virginia public roadway either:

  • At a speed of 20 mph over the posted speed limit, or
  • At a speed of more than 80 mph (regardless of the posted speed limit).

Experienced Alexandria Traffic Attorney

In Virginia, a reckless driving violation is a six (6) point offense and will be on your driving record for 11 years. The same applies to a DUI/DWI (drunk driving) conviction in Virginia as well as a conviction for driving while suspended. Virginia speeding tickets fall into three categories. A reckless driving by speed ticket is a six point violation and stays on your Virginia driving record for eleven (11) years. A 10-19 mph Virginia speeding ticket is a four point offense and will be on your Virginia driving record for five years. A 1-9 mph Virginia speeding ticket is a three point offense and stays on your Virginia driving record for five years. In Virginia if you accumulate more than 18 points in one year or 24 points in two years the Department of Motor Vehicles will suspend your license. For more information on demerit points contact the VA DMV.

  • The consequences for Reckless Driving: Clients who reach out to us concerning a reckless driving arrest often share common questions. In most cases, our clients want to know whether they will go to jail if they are convicted of reckless driving.  Answering this question depends entirely on your speed and the city or county in which you were driving.  If you are convicted of driving 90 mph, there’s a possibility that you will face jail time.  Anything above 90 mph will almost always result in jail time.  However, speaking to an experienced Alexandria traffic lawyer is the only way to provide appropriate insight into your case and the possibility for jail time.
  • An aggressive defense: The consequences of a reckless driving charge often depend on having an experienced lawyer to represent you. At Ervin Kibria, we have the necessary experience to aggressively investigate, defend and challenge the charges.

If you are facing a reckless driving or other serious traffic offense, contact the Alexandria Reckless Driving Lawyers at Ervin Kibria today to thoroughly discuss your case and make a determination on whether an attorney is needed in your particular case.

Penalties For Alexandria Reckless Driving Conviction

Standard Penalties For First Reckless Driving Offense:

For a first offense, Virginia reckless driving penalties are still considerably harsh.  A first offense reckless driving conviction can result in the following:

  1. Up to 1 year in jail;
  2. Up to 6 months suspension of driver’s license;
  3. Up to $2,500 fine; and
  4. 6 points on driving record

Types of Reckless Driving Offenses in Virginia

In Virginia, there are several variations of the reckless driving charge.  The most common form of reckless driving is “Reckless Driving By Speed,” which is  driving 20 mph over the posted speed limit or 80 mph or more, regardless of the speed limit.

Virginia also has a reckless driving charge of “Reckless Driving Generally,” which applies to situations where the driver of a vehicle is considered to be driving erratically or in an otherwise dangerous manner.

Increasing, Virginia has also started to charge more drivers with “Reckless Driving For Passing a Stopped School Bus.”  Passing a stopped school bus can be charged either as a simple traffic ticket or as reckless driving.  Due to an overall increase in traffic failing to abide by the laws of a stopped school bus, police have increasingly begun charging drivers with reckless driving.

Should I Get A Lawyer For a Reckless Driving Charge?

YES.  Only after a consultation where we can thoroughly discuss your particular case and the facts surrounding your charges can we properly answer this question.  However, due to the serious nature of  a Virginia Reckless Driving charge, it is important for you to at least reach out to an attorney and discuss the options available to you.  If you decide not to challenge the charge in court, you will face the consequences, both criminally and socially, of having a misdemeanor conviction on your record.  The circumstances of your case may make you eligible for certain punishment reductions or diversion programs.  You can only find out by speaking to an experienced traffic attorney.

It is a three point traffic violation for Virginia drivers.

In Virginia, reckless driving is considered a criminal offense. It is a class one misdemeanor which means it the maximum punishment is 12 months incarceration and/or a $2,500 fine and/or 6 months license suspension.

All of these reckless driving tickets are punishes as Class 1 misdemeanor criminal offenses. the penalty is described above.
