Bristol Reckless Driving Attorney and Virginia Speeding Lawyer

Bristol is an independent city in the commonwealth of Virginia[1] with over 17,000 residents.[2] Recognized as the birthplace of country music,[3] Bristol’s world-class fly-fishing waters, mountain bike trails, and cultural scene draw droves of visitors each year.  Unfortunately, this increased traffic often leads to a rise in traffic citations.  As a result, an enjoyable visit can quickly turn into an unpleasant experience for a resident or visitor if they are cited for reckless driving.

Littered with speed traps, Interstate 81 is a prime patrol area for Bristol law enforcement officers.  Many unsuspecting residents and visitors are cited for reckless driving for exceeding the posted 70 mile-per-hour speed limit.  For charged with driving 20 mph or more over the speed limit, or with driving 85 mph or more, the charge is not only speeding, it also constitutes reckless driving, which is a criminal charge.  Being charged with reckless driving can have significant and long-lasting consequences, which is why it is critical to seek legal representation as soon as possible if you are cited for reckless driving.

As a Bristol reckless driving lawyer, firm-founding attorney Mark Hurt can challenge traffic citations and seek reduced charges, dismissals, and not guilty verdicts.  If you were cited for reckless driving, contact our office today to schedule a free consultation.

We are available 24/7, and offer a free consultation, affordable fixed-fee representation, and we accept credit cards.

What is Reckless Driving in Bristol, VA?

Each year, over nine thousand people are killed in speeding-related incidents.[4]  Therefore, Bristol has some of the severest driving laws in the country, which are aggressively enforced.  Many out-of-state drivers are surprised to learn that in Virginia, driving 20 miles over the applicable maximum speed limit or in excess of 85 miles per hour (regardless of the speed limit) is considered reckless driving.[5]

In addition to speeding, there are several other circumstances under which an individual can be charged with reckless driving, including:

  • Endangering the life, limb, or property of another person[6]
  • Driving a vehicle with faulty brakes
  • Passing on or at the crest of a grade or on a curve
  • Driving with an obstructed view
  • Driving next to a car in a single lane
  • Driving too fast for highway or traffic conditions
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Racing
  • Failing to give proper signals
  • Aggressive Driving[7]

If you were cited for reckless driving, it is critical to not gamble with your future, as the consequences can be devastating – hire an experienced Bristol, Virginia reckless driving lawyer who knows how to argue for reduced penalties and dismissals.  With over three decades of experience, Mark Hurt knows how to fight reckless driving charges tenaciously.

What Are the Penalties for Reckless Driving in Virginia?

Being charged with reckless driving in Virginia can have severe impacts on your life.  If found guilty of excessive speeding or reckless driving, you can face penalties, including:

  • Steep fines (up to $2,500)
  • A misdemeanor or felony conviction
  • Demerit points on a license
  • Increased insurance rates
  • Driver’s license suspension (up to 2 years)
  • Security clearance revocation
  • Jail time (up to one year)
  • Lost or reduced employment
  • Charge on a DMV record (up to 11 years)

Individuals are entitled to represent themselves in any Virginia reckless driving case, but this is often unwise.  Reckless driving laws are complex, and if convicted, the penalties can be significant and long-lasting.

Importantly, if you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and your livelihood depends upon being able to drive, a driving conviction can have critical negative consequences.  We frequently represent commercial drivers, and fully understand the regulations and impacts concerning a driving infraction.

As an experienced Bristol, Virginia reckless driving lawyer, Mark Hurt may be able to help in seeking to mitigate these consequences.  If you retain our firm, we can develop a strategy for seeking the best outcome possible for your case, fight for you at trial, seek a dismissal (if there is a basis for doing so), and (at your direction), negotiate with prosecutors for reduced charges (such as improper driving)[8] that will have a significantly reduced impact.

Can I Go to Jail If I Am Convicted of Reckless Driving?

Yes.  Depending upon the severity of the infraction, an individual can be arrested for reckless driving.  If convicted, a penalty of up to one year in jail can be assessed, and an individual will likely have a permanent criminal record.

Because the penalties are so severe, it is critical to reach out to an experienced Bristol reckless driving attorney as soon as possible so that a compelling and vigorous defense can be constructed.

How Long Will a Reckless Driving Conviction Stay on My Driving Record?

The gravity of a violation dictates how long a conviction stays on a driving record.  In most reckless driving cases, a charge will be reported for eleven years.  Additionally, if convicted, a misdemeanor or felony may remain on an individual’s criminal record forever.  Further, expungement is not allowed in Bristol, meaning the charge cannot be removed.

Why Should I Hire an Experienced Bristol Reckless Driving Lawyer?

Attorney Mark Hurt is a native Bristolian who obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia and his law degree from Duke University. Before returning to the Tri-Cities, Mark gained invaluable experience practicing at litigation firms in Dallas, Texas and Washington DC, helping hundreds of individuals obtain dismissals and reduced penalties.

Mark Hurt has over 25 years of experience in helping Virginians aggressively oppose reckless driving charges.  He has a reputation for being an experienced traffic citation attorney who knows how to vigorously fight for reduced charges, as well as how to effectively argue for full dismissals and not guilty verdicts at trial.

When an individual hires The Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt, depending on the facts and circumstance of a case, we may be able to help with the following:

  • Seeking reduced penalties
  • Appearing in court
  • Preventing employment issues (especially for those with a CDL)
  • Avoiding increases in insurance premiums
  • Seeking a dismissal or not guilty verdict at trial
  • Avoiding a life-long criminal record
  • Avoiding jail time
  • Clearing a driving record

Hurt, we can evaluate your case and explain your legal options and how we can help.  We also offer affordable flat-fee pricing and accept credit cards.

I contacted the law offices of Mark T. Hurt regarding a traffic ticket I received. Initially I was concerned because I live between Florida and New York, and with Virginia being midway, handling my ticket would be a major inconvenience, and I wanted to keep my record free of any infractions.Choosing Mark T. Hurt to represent me was the best choice I made, and it was further improved with the assistance of Rhonda, who contacted me once they received my request. Rhonda is one of those unique people who has mastered the fine line between being perfectly professional and friendly. Every conversation we had, was made to feel as if I were speaking to a close friend. One of the most appreciated aspects of working with her was her understanding and respectful of my schedule and time.For my work, I have a hectic schedule and very few free moments, so being able to handle things quickly and effectively is a priority for me, and Rhonda understood that and took care of everything as if she knew exactly what I was expecting. I even got sick while working with Rhonda, and her first comment was to wish me well. She also went out of her way to find solutions regarding my traffic citation that worked around my schedule. The price was fair, and when considering the quality of work and more importantly, the quality of people you will be reliant upon to ensure the best possible outcome for whatever your situation is, they can ask for 10x more than what I paid and it would still be worth it.All in all, recommendation for this law office, and for Rhonda herself, could not be higher. If you are searching for someone to represent you in any legal matter whatsoever, this is the office to work with. Thank you again Rhonda.

I'm not a Virgina resident and had found this firm through Google. I have a traffic violation case in tennessee and was desperate to get awnsers. This law office's staff was so helpful even though I wasn't able to even be a client, I believe the person who awnsered was Ashley. After their direction on finding another attorney and my case I was able to push my court date back and will be able to find someone to represent me.I'm not even a client, they didn't have to help me at all! I just wish they practiced in the tri cities area! Would recommend this group!

Late in July I was charged with a reckless driving ticket in Greenville County, Virginia. I got caught going 83mph in a 55mph zone. It was my first offense on my driving record and I did not need a misdemeanor which could hurt my career. I was assured by Mrs Rhonda Hurt not to worry and that her team would take care of it. On my end, the only effort I put in was taking a 12 hour defensive driving course and sending her my driving record. Two months later, the result of my hearing was a reduction to a defective equipment/non driving violation with 0 points off my record. The other good part about this case was I did not have to go to court. In court fees I paid $68 and a fine of $78 for my ticket. Mrs. Rhonda and her team put together a miracle in that county and I cannot give her enough credit. I sincerely recommend this firm because I know they worked hard on my case and will do the same for you. Thank you again!

I got a traffic ticket while I traveled passing through VA in May.It is a big deal if you have the Law Section: 44-1/46/2-862 and speeding excess of 80 MPH in your ticket. It is a Criminal Misdemeanor Reckless Driving Charge!I saw Mark T. Hurt's Law office simple letter, I decided to give a call and get a free consultation.From the call, Rhonda provided a detail explaining the criminal charge of the Misdemeanor Reckless Driving ticket is about. She is a very caring and honest person, no sale pressure to me to take their law office at all.Once I decided to use their firm to represent me in court, it didn't take an hour, I was told totake some actions and wait for cout day to see the result. That is that simple and no worry at all. On the court date, I received text messages from lawyer's office. Guess what? The lawyer did a miraculous and fantastic job for me in the court.The Reckless Driving Misdemeanor ticket has been reduced to an Improper Driving traffic ticket.Thanks to Mark T. Hurt's Law office team! They are not only very professional and transparent but also does the best quality job you can find. I strongly recommend them to be your lawyer if you need one in VA.

Having landed a Reckless Driving (99 in a 65) on my way back to FL from WV, I came across this law firm when searching something along "best reckless driving lawyers Virginia."Mr. Hurt's firm dropped my "Criminal Misdemeanor" to an improper driving. Which from my understanding is right next to a normal speeding ticket.All expenses accounted (payment, court cost, fine), I'm out roughly $1,100 ; but I'd much rather pay that once today, than every six months to an insurance company for the next... God knows how many years. I am extremely grateful and overjoyed with my outcome.As far as speaking with the great ladies at these offices, everyone was always kind, quick, and considerate. They answered all my questions, explained all my options and possible outcomes. I had a clean record, and had now experience dealing with courts or lawyers, so their patience and knowledge was especially helpful. If I ever screw up again (I pray to God I don't) I hope it's in Virginia, so I can call upon Mr. Hurt's offices.

I called Mark Hurt's law office and they told exactly what I would need to do prior to the trial. Got the news that my charge had been reduced to defective equipment and all I had to do was pay 250 dollars plus fees. This firm saved me time, money, and a criminal record. Thank you Mark Hurt and your diligent team.

A huge thank you to everyone involved in this case. This conclusion was received very warmly by us. I am a free man thanks to you.Your team was always courteous and consistent in promptly responding to questions along the way. I felt like I was in good hands from start to finish. I appreciated having the opportunity to communicate with a few of you by telephone, text or email (I am Canadian) and the professionalism was strong from top to bottom.The day of the favourable decision, I received an email in the evening, well after office hours, which demonstrated to me their dedication in getting back to me as soon as it was possible. I had known all along that I wouldn't need to follow up, just from the way my case was handled throughout.I could not have asked for more, am very thankful for the favourable result and highly encourage anyone to contact you if they require legal counsel.

The law office exceeded my expectations by getting my reckless driving charge dismissed.Important things to note:-The receptionist Carol was extremely amiable and even pushed the trial back a few months since I found them literally a day before my court date.-I live out of state and they took care of everything through the phone, email, mail.-Melanie Blankenship emailed/called me to give me the outcome of the trial and was very thorough.

Promise made. Promise kept.5.0 starsPosted by EricDecember 13, 2018When I learned that what I thought was a regular speeding ticket for being clocked at 86 mph in a 70 mph zone on a stretch of I-81 in VA less than 30 miles from TN this past September enroute from York PA to visit my sick aunt in Knoxville, was really a Class 1 misdemeanor reckless driving charge which carried with it a year in jail, a $2,500.00 fine, and six points on my license I was both shocked & outraged; shocked that the penalty was so severe in an obvious speed trap and outraged that the ticketing officer did not tell me what I had when asked; saying that I could pay off the ticket over the phone without having to appear in court; neither of which was true with this particular charge. But for my suspicion that the officer had not told me the truth I would never have looked up the code on my ticket once I reached my destination and discovered the serious nature of the charge. I was sick because I knew I had no money to hire an attorney; let alone pay that $2,500.00 fine. Fortunately, while looking up the specifics of what I was charged with, I came across the Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt and the rave reviews I read compelled me to contact his offices on the spot. I explained my dire financial situation and to my amazement his office agreed to take a $100.00 down payment on the spot with the balance of the flat $400.00 fee to be paid off between now & my court date of December 13, 2018 (a date which they had gotten moved from September after I had only paid half of my fee). Well, I did what they told me to do; taking an eight hour safe driving course (which I found to be extremely helpful) and sending in my driving record which fortunately for me had not had any kind of infractions for over twenty years. As a result, due to Mark's representation, the court agreed to reduce my reckless driving charge to a basic traffic infraction of 79/70. This reduced my financial penalty from $2,500.00 to a $175.00 fine plus $64.00 in court costs and three points on my license. In an additional stroke of good fortune, I happen to live in one of two states (PA) which does not count three point out of state traffic infractions against my driving record which means my insurance rates will not go up. So all total I am out of $715.00 from this whole experience when you factor in attorney's fees, court costs, fine, and safe driving course & while it is a financial hit I can ill afford, it is a whole, whole lot better than the $2,500.00 hit plus six points & having a permanent criminal record I would have received had I done what so many out of state drivers unwittingly do; allow their reckless driving charge to result in a conviction either by not hiring a super attorney like Mark T. Hurt & representing themselves, or not showing up at all and taking the full hit by foolishly ignoring the seriousness of the charge. Don't be an idiot and incur such needless damage to yourself by trying to handle this alone because trust me, you won't win and you sure as hell will lose big. The Law Offices of Mark T, Hurt will work with you and as my title here states, a Promise they make is a Promise they keep. Just be sure to hold up your end & do exactly what they tell you to do because if you do that, you will surely come out ahead. So thank you Mark and thank your wonderful staff. All of you are superb in what you do and are true to your word. Just please don't hold it against me if during my next trip south I choose to fly over Virginia rather than drive through it. Hell, those folks are so overzealous in trapping folks in speed traps that right now I'm even afraid of taking the train through that state for fear that they might stop it for speeding and ticket everyone on board. Hey, you never know. Anyway, thanks again Mark and God Bless.With Kindest Regards,Eric D. Smith

My cousin got a Reckless Driving ticket in Wythe VA, and he was freaking out because he was visiting from another country. I began researching lawyers and called the office of Mark T. Hurt. The first time i call it was Carol who responded to all my questions. The next day i called again and it was Melanie that picked up my call. Both Carol and Melanie were extremely professional and the law office accepted our case. We were fortunate to have Mr. Hurt to represent my cousin to go to court since he has to go back to his country. Surprisingly, the fine was to the minimum and Melanie emailed me right away on how to pay the fine online. I went ahead paid the fine online for my cousin. We were happy with the outcome and extremely happy to have worked with the staffs at The office of Mark T. Hurt. Best Law office in the area!! Extremely satisfied!!! Best in the area!

I had received a reckless driving citation in VA on my way down to Myrtle Beach, SC for vacation in July. I was so distraught and disappointed in myself. Those feelings only worsened when I reviewed everything I was up against in the initial citation. I had just graduated in June with my associates degree in Medical Assistanting. I thought, “This is unreal, I just started a new chapter in my life and this charge could ruin my life with my son!” Obviously I was overwhelmed. My mom was trying to help me find an attorney and some that we contacted we helpful but some were not helpful and plain rude. My mom, by chance found the office of Mark T. Hurt while searching the Internet. I was so emotional when I called and almost losing hope and that’s when I was able to speak to Ms. Pease. She was very nice, empathetic, positive, and upfront on the information I needed to provide along with the process of the court procedures. I’m so blessed and grateful for you Ms. Pease, you certainly calmed my nerves, soul, and mind because this was my first incident like this ever in my life and I was frightened, as you know! Ms. Pease along with the staff kept in very good and excellent contact with me. They provided me confidence, security, along with timely updates or check-ins during my continuation and hearing being that I live in Pennsylvania and was unable to attend my hearing personally. Ms. Pease was able to get my reckless driving citation changed to an improper driving charge and believe me when I say this I am truly and forever grateful for her assistance and professionalism in this matter. It’s a shame almost that I want to say thank you for doing your job Ms. Pease, however in today’s world they just don’t make or this world just doesn’t have as many people who take pride in their job and treat their clients with respect and empathy as you did. I sincerely thank you Ms. Pease and the entire staff at the office of Mark T. Hurt. I wish the best to you all with many blessings along the way!

I recently used their services for a speeding ticket in Pulaski county Virginia. The outcome was better than I expected.Services from this law firm was actually 50 dollars less than their local competitors and they were the only one that actually gave me a clear run down of what I can expect. They got my ticket dismissed and I couldnt be happier with the final outcome. Being that I was from out of state they took care of everything. I would use their services again but hopefully I will never have to.

Did a fantastic job. It was easy working with them and I really couldn't have imagined getting a better outcome than what I got with them in regards to my speeding ticket in southwest VA.
