Brunswick County is located on the southern border of Virginia, with prominent roadways, including Interstate 85 and highway Route 58, crossing through county. Along these roadways, Brunswick County police are known for aggressive enforcement of driving laws, which can create serious consequences for drivers charged with speeding, reckless driving, and other infractions.
If you’ve been charged with speeding or reckless driving, it is important to understand that this charge can be serious. Many non-Virginia residents may be surprised to learn that if a ticket was received for going 81 mph or faster, the speeding ticket is actually a ticket for reckless driving, which is a criminal charge. Benefits of hiring an attorney
Whether you are a local resident or an out of state driver, hiring an attorney for a Brunswick County traffic ticket can have many benefits, such as the following:
- Having an experienced attorney in court to represent you. In most cases, our firm can represent you at court, so you won’t need to come to Virginia (if you live out-of-state) or even take time off from work.
• Our firm will work diligently in seeking the best outcome for you, which could mean a not guilty verdict or reduced charges, fines, and/or fewer points on your record
- Securing a more favorable outcome than pleading guilty could help keep your insurance premiums from rising
- In the case where the charges are serious, having dedicated legal counsel can help in keeping driving privileges.
While no attorney can guaranty a favorable outcome, having a lawyer on your side who will diligently oppose the prosecution will likely be beneficial in increasing your chances of a better result.

Contesting Your Speeding or Reckless Driving Ticket – Understanding the Time Limits
For every ticket there will be a specified time limit in which the ticket itself may be contested. In some cases, a court appearance may be required – either by you or your attorney. It is critical that tickets not be ignored; otherwise, adverse consequences may result.
In years past, non-Virginia residents often assumed that speeding and reckless driving tickets could be ignored on the basis that such tickets were not likely to “catch up with them” if they were not likely to be driving in Virginia in the future. This is no longer the case.
Increasingly, with the integration of databases among states concerning criminal matters and driving infractions, tickets that are ignored – particularly those such as reckless driving that carry criminal misdemeanor designations – will catch up with drivers. In cases in which court appearances are required, a failure to appear at court can have even more serious consequences. It is much better, therefore, to retain an attorney and seek to contest a ticket than to ignore a ticket completely.
