Leesburg Traffic Violation Defense Attorneys
Types of Traffic Violations in Virginia
Paying the ticket may seem like an inexpensive way to resolve charges for speeding and other traffic violations. However, the long-term consequences — the potential for higher insurance rates, loss of driving privileges and even a criminal record— can be far costlier than hiring a lawyer to defend you.
Some forms of moving violations in Loudoun County include:
- Reckless driving
- Driving without a license or on a suspended license
- Driving without insurance
- Drunk driving charges (known as DUI in Virginia)
- Tickets in accidents cases
- Commercial traffic violations, such as exceeding the weight limit

Virginia Traffic Violation Penalties
When you pay a traffic ticket in Virginia, a finding of guilt is entered on the charge. In the case of a summons for reckless driving or driving on a suspended license, you are charged with a class 1 misdemeanor that may result in the loss of your driver's license or time in jail. You will also have a permanent criminal record that could affect you every time an employer, lender, or police officer conducts a background check on you in the future.
Any traffic ticket that alleges a moving violation will result in points on your driver's license. If you accumulate points, you face driver's license suspension by the Department of Motor Vehicles. In addition, your auto insurance company can raise your rates or even cancel your policy based on the number of points you have.
Hiring an experienced Leesburg traffic ticket attorney can make the difference between keeping your driver's license or losing it.
