  • The testimonial below was originally posted on Yelp.

I had the unfortunate experience of being pulled over in Virginia for reckless driving by speed (88 in a 70). I was shocked to see how severe the penalties were for what most states consider simple speeding. I did some research and found Andrew Flusches website very informative. I called him on a Saturday evening. By Monday morning, he had returned my call. We talked for about 10 minutes before I hired him to represent me as I am out of state. He made the process very simple. The result of the case was exactly what I had hoped for. Andrew was worth every penny and then some.

Caroline Reckless Driving Defenses

My main reckless driving article has a great overview of the possibilities of your case. And I’ve written many articles on specific angles in my reckless driving archives.

Both Caroline County judges are accepting of many defense arguments that we might make. They aren’t guaranteed to win the day, of course, but the judges will listen.

Depending on your particular case, we might have your speedometer calibrated. And sometimes we can argue that the officer’s calibration isn’t done correctly or he doesn’t have the proper documentation.

Those are just two of the many defenses we can employ. And even if the Commonwealth can prove that charge against you, we can still try to get the judge to reduce or dismiss the charge. Both judges in Caroline consider sending defendants to driving school to obtain better outcomes in the case, but that option varies between the judges and based on the defendant’s prior record.
