Picked Up a Speeding Ticket in Virginia?

Speeding tickets are incredibly prevalent in Arlington County, Alexandria City, Fairfax County, Prince William County and Loudoun County.  But just because you got a speeding ticket, that doesn’t mean that you should just give in and pay the fine.  You have rights.  Specifically, you have the right to force the Commonwealth of Virginia to prove that you were speeding.  This have to do this by proving the method that they measured your speed – which is often Radar, Lidar, or by pacing you.  An experienced traffic attorney knows how to properly defend you against these charges, and possibility get them dismissed or reduced.


Experienced Speeding Ticket Lawyer

While we have experience working with clients facing traffic charges throughout Northern Virginia, including Arlington, Alexandria, Loudoun, Stafford, and Prince William counties, we specialize in Fairfax traffic defense.  If you have been charged with speeding in any of these counties, we strongly encourage you to reach out for your free consultation.  Walking in to court with an attorney at your side could mean the difference between 6 points and 0 points on your driving record!  These points have a direct impact on your insurance premiums.

There are many possible defenses to a speeding ticket.  Although many police departments and agencies have greatly improved their application of radar to traffic control, a large number still are not qualified to operate this type of instrument.  Operating a traffic radar unit does not require a genius in any way, but it does require at least proper training and a basic understanding of how the device works.  Laser traffic radars perform the same function as microwave radars but use different methods – pulses instead of Doppler – to measure target speed.  Naturally, additional operator training is required for the proper use of these technologies.  When you hire an attorney at Ervin Kibria, we make sure that the officer who cited you for speeding had this proper training and can prove it!

Many traffic tickets are considered moving violations. As a moving violation, DMV demerit points will be assessed in accordance with the type of conviction. For example, if you have a good driving record, such as +3 record, and are convicted of a speeding ticket at 74 mph in a 55 mph zone, the 4 points that would be assessed would result in a -1 point balance. In addition, most insurance companies raise their rates when their customer receives a moving violation, such as a speeding ticket, because the customer is deemed to be a greater risk for the insurance company.  As a result, it is strongly recommended that you contact an experienced traffic lawyer at Ervin Kibria to discuss your available options.

Justin is a man of his words and I couldn’t ask for a better lawyer. Justin fought for my case and was with me every step of the way. Communication was concise and he was available all the time. The thing that impressed me the most is not the outcome of my case but how he handled everything easily. View on AVVO

Terrific Outcome!

I hired Mr. Ervin to help with my possession of marijuana case. Other attorneys I spoke to told me that there was not much to do but take a plea deal and suck it up. But Mr. Ervin immediately saw problems with the case and thought that the search was illegal. We went all the way to trial and I was found not guilty. Mr. Ervin did a fantastic job! View on AVVO

Not Guilty!

Before contacting Mr. Ervin, I called two other attorneys about my synthetic marijuana case and they both told me that there was nothing to do and that I should just plead guilty and ask the judge for mercy. Luckily I made one more call to Mr. Ervin. First I liked that he was younger cause it felt like he talked to me like a person. He spent time explaining the case to me and agreed to help me out. He found out that there was a problem with the test and got the case dismissed. He did a great job and I'm very happy. View on AVVO

Awesome Defense

Mr. Ervin was my lawyer when I was facing a serious charge during a dark time in my life. I've been through the legal system before and I've met my share of lawyers. Most of them don't have the time to really listen to what I have to say. They don't care what my story is. Mr. Ervin did care, and he did listen. He won my assault case and I definitely recommend him! View on AVVO

Exceptional Lawyers Who Care

I am minor international student studying in the United States, and this was my first experience with the US court system. I had a serious criminal traffic matter, but Mr. Ervin carefully explained to me how the court system works and what I should expect. He put a lot of time into my case and was always available. It was a complicated case, but he got it dismissed in the first hearing. I would recommend him to anyone! View on AVVO

Great, Patient Attorney

I retained the services of Nabeel Kibria for a complicated criminal case, in which I was wrongfully accused. I was very concerned and apprehensive as I did not know exactly what I was walking into at the time. All I knew was that I was potentially facing jail time if convicted. Upon hiring Mr. Kibria he was very considerate, understanding and thoroughly explained the legal process moving forward. View on AVVO
