Reckless Driving

Reckless driving violations are very serious charges in Virginia. As a result, a conviction carries penalties like license suspension, fines, and class 1 misdemeanor.  Moreover, these consequences can have very long lasting effects. Additionally, this can burden even the most proactive motorist. Virginia’s traffic ticket attorney Trey Mattox


Many drivers have exceeded posted speed limits during their driving history. However, speeding ticket charges in Virginia can vary significantly depending on the nature of the offense.  Certainly, more extreme cases are charged as reckless driving by speed, which is a class 1 misdemeanor.  Admittedly, speeding is an infraction rather than a misdemeanor. Even so, a conviction can still carry very serious and lasting consequences including license suspension, points on your driving record, high fines, and increased insurance rates.


Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious traffic violation in Virginia. Consequently, a DUI conviction has long lasting consequences. Additionally, it is often a complicated path to trial that can be confusing. More, this process is very stressful for individuals facing these charges. Importantly, an experienced Virginia DUI attorney will help minimize the chance of negative outcome.

Driving On A Suspended License

Driving on a suspended license carries significant penalties in the Commonwealth of Virginia. However, Mattox Law understands that each suspended license violation is unique. Notably, this offense is a class 1 misdemeanor, the most severe classification Additionally, receiving a conviction carries very likely possibilities of higher fines, longer license suspensions, and jail sentence (mandatory for multiple convictions).

Other Traffic Violations

In Virginia, misdemeanors get a lot of attention. However, there are many other traffic violations with consequences. Getting convicted of a traffic infraction can carry points for your driving record and affect your your insurance rates. However, unlike reckless driving, these offenses will not result in a criminal conviction. Some common traffic violations include: following too closely, fail to obey highway sign, fail to obey traffic signal, illegal U-turn, among others. Virginia’s traffic ticket attorney Trey Mattox has experience defending a wide variety of traffic crimes and infractions.

Another Great Experience

Thank you so much for your support! I really appreciate it! I look forward to putting this behind me. You and your team were professional, efficient and awesome to work with! 

Nancy Previous Client Speeding

Reckless Driving Reduced

I contacted Mr. Mattox’s office after I received a reckless speeding ticket in Hanover County on my way back to DC (87MPH in a 55MPH zone). After talking to multiple lawyers, Mr. Mattox, while reassuring, was also the most honest in laying out the likely outcomes of the case. Because I already had had two previous speeding tickets, I was facing a license suspension and potentially jail time. But Mr. Mattox and his case manager Stephanie were very professional and laid out multiple steps to follow ahead of my court date to put me in the best position. Because I completed the steps Mr. Mattox laid out, he was able to persuade the judge to drop my Reckless Driving by speed (which is a misdemeanor) to Improper Driving with no license suspension or jail time, only a $350 fine. The judge even said at the very end that the only reason that I was “walking out the front door today” was because my lawyer “made a very convincing argument.” Mr. Mattox did a great job and I plan on recommending him to any of my family or friends who have traffic cases in central Virginia.

Collin Client Reckless

Hire Him!

Trey and his staff are super professional, and they helped me with every step along the way. I was charged with reckless driving by speed in Mecklenburg County, 95/70. I am from South Carolina and was traveling through, so I had no idea that the penalties were so stiff for speeding in Virginia. I was not able to travel back to Virginia for court, so Mr. Mattox appeared on my behalf and did an exceptional job. Trey was able to get my charge reduced to improper driving, which was a great result in my opinion. He saved me a lot of headache. I was very worried that I would get convicted and have my insurance skyrocket and have a criminal record, but Trey was able to get it reduced! I am super thankful I chose him. I am now able to move on with my life without a criminal record. Thank you again Trey and Stephanie, you guys are the best!

Brady Client Reckless

Reckless Driving to Non Moving

In June 2019, my son was coming back from school in NC and got caught doing 84 in 70 on Rt. 85. He was charged for reckless driving. This ticket worried us because he had two other moving violations in the last year. Mr. Mattox quickly gave us a list of things my son needed to do before the trial date including speedometer calibration check and online course To ease our worries, he told us we did not need to be there in person as we live in DC area. He’s very organized and very responsive throughout the process. Trey took time we needed to talk us through it. Stephanie was great too! Our case outcome was better than expected – reduced to non-moving violation! I’d recommend spending the money to get proper representation, especially when looking at a criminal misdemeanor charge – you don’t want that on your record!

Gary Client Reckless Driving

Reckless Driving Reduced Down to Speeding

Recently, I got a 92/70 reckless driving ticket in Mecklenburg County. I consulted many attorneys and most of them told me it is impossible to get the reduction down because 92 was too high for the judge to change his mind. I felt hopeless. However, Mr. Mattox showed his confidence and his professionalism, he even answered my endless questions before I hired him. He was patient enough to explain the solution of my case to me, and I ended up with 79/70 speeding! I really appreciate Mr. Mattox and his office manager, Ms. Mosson’s assistance throughout the whole process. Highly recommend this attorney!

Mr. Mattox is Official!

I got a reckless driving ticket (85/55) on I-95 on my wedding night. To my surprise in the Commonwealth, that’s a Class 1 misdemeanor. Oh God! I found this out a week before my case. Stephanie informed me of all things to do on my end (speedometer calibration, RADEP class, etc.) and was very helpful in that process. After a few continuances to get myself together, got a better result than what was told to me during initial consultation. DISMISSED! Have trouble, call MATTOX!

James Client Reckless Driving

Driving Ticket

I was brand new to the Richmond area and got a traffic ticket late at night. I called Mr. Mattox’s office right away and got a call back the next morning.

He and his staff were super helpful and very clear and concise on what I needed to do before trial and what to expect (i.e. where to look up my driving record) and taking the driving defense course before going to court. 

On the day of the trial, Mr. Mattox was in control of the situation at court and told me his game plan along with what the worst possible outcome could be so I was prepared. His preparation paid off, and I got the charged dropped.

Anonymous Client Overall Experience

Consummate Professional

New to Virginia, I was suspicious of all of the lawyer solicitations I received after being speed trapped. I looked through the dozens of pieces of mail and picked the two I felt seemed most professional, called their offices and assessed each experience.

Trey and staff presented themselves as consummate professionals throughout. My questions were answered quickly and thoughtfully. Those of us new to the Commonwealth need to understand how much local municipalities rely on this income. I travel globally, so had no way of appearing personally in court. Hiring Trey to represent me turned out to be a brilliant strategy. He understands the system and represents you with great professionalism.

Don’t hesitate. Hire him!

Robert Client Speeding

Obtained Favorable Outcome for Me!

Early in the morning on Oct. 5, 2017, I was returning to Maryland from having attended the funeral of my best friend in NC. I had just entered Virginia when I was pulled over and informed that I was clocked driving 12 mph over the speed limit. I was shocked because my Garmin Nuvi indicated I was driving 77-78 mph. I signed the summons and continued on my way. Later that night, I looked at the summons and became extremely unraveled – the summons cited me for Reckless Driving! I did an internet search on reckless driving in Virginia and definitely became “unglued!” I immediately googled Emporia, VA reckless driving attorneys and decided on Trey Mattox. I sent him an email that night citing the facts. The next day I received a reply from him, and it was his assurance and knowledge of the Greensville County court system that assuaged my emotions. I agreed to allow him to represent me and emailed him relevant documents. I received an email from him the day following my court case, and he had gotten my charge reduced to faulty equipment! Reckless Driving is as serious an offense as DWI, so I highly recommend anyone facing that charge to hire an attorney — and, Trey Mattox gets my vote!

Mattox Law – Traffic Court Review

While traveling through the Commonwealth of Virginia this summer, I was pulled over and ticketed for doing 81 in a 70 MPH zone. At the time the officer was writing the ticket, I didn’t think I was in too much trouble. After all, in my state, doing 11 MPH over the limit doesn’t usually warrant a second look from an officer at a speed trap. However, upon further inspection of my ticket, I learned that I was in much more trouble. Even though I was only going 11 MPH over the posted speed limit, in Virginia, driving over 80 MPH is considered Reckless Driving – an offense serious enough to land jail time, and basically the equivalent of a DUI in most states. 

I immediately started searching online for legal representation and, after visiting several lawyer’s websites and bios, came across some positive reviews for Mattox Law. His success rate for my specific case was appealing, and I found his website informative and helpful. That was enough for me to choose Mattox Law to represent me. 

The Mattox Law staff were attentive, knowledgeable, and prompt

Mr. Mattox represented me in court, and successfully negotiated a significantly reduced sentence of Defective Equipment Generally, a non-moving violation with no points and a nominal fine.

Mr. Mattox is a Man of His Word!

I received a ticket for reckless driving in the state of Virginia, doing 85 MPH. Never had a ticket in my life before. Had no idea on how to go about obtaining a lawyer to represent my case. Received letters in the mail from numerous lawyers that were offering their services to take on my case. I chose Mr. Mattox because his letter was simple and to the point. Somehow stood out from the rest. Called and to my surprise spoke directly to him. He explained what options he felt I had and what he felt he could do for my particular case. He is a man of his word and it all played out exactly as he had explained it to me. My charge of reckless driving was lowered, and the amount of the fine was as well. Most importantly to me, there is nothing on my driving record to indicate my careless mistake. Thank you, Mr. Mattox for your help and expertise.

Maria Client Reckless

Successful Reduction of Offense

Trey was able to appear in court on my behalf and successfully reduce my speeding infraction to a defective equipment charge. He responded quickly to emails and seemed on top of his game. I noticed his prices seem to be a bit higher than other attorneys in the area, but in my opinion the increase in charge is worth it.

I am glad I came across Richard Mattox III while searching for a law firm in the Virginia area. I was provided an excellent service from Mr. Mattox and his assistant Stephanie. I was given a piece of mind they will do their best in court to represent my case. It’s especially important if you are an out of state resident. Thank you for great work.

Trust In Trey!

Trey represented my son in a reckless driving charge. He was professional and did not exaggerate what he could do, which gave us more confidence than other lawyers we spoke with before hiring Trey. He was professional, specific, responsive and attentive. He represented us in court which saved us time and money. He got the entire charge dismissed.

Clay Client Reckless Driving

Traffic Violations

Trey represented me in a traffic matter in the Sussex court. He was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable about the specific judge in my case. He was also very reasonably priced. The attorney who referred me told me representation would cost me 3 times what Trey charged, so I was very pleased with the fee. He took care of my traffic charge without me having to travel down to Virginia, with no points on my license (for a reckless driving charge), and for a very manageable fine. Excellent experience all around.

I would highly recommend using Trey Mattox’s services. His staff was incredibly helpful and professional. Working with the Commonwealth’s Attorney and the police officer, Trey was able to get my ticket reduced from reckless to improper driving.

Excellent Attorney for Virginia Traffic Ticket

Although I will do my very best not to need Mr. Mattox’s help again, it was the best decision to hire him for my Virginia traffic ticket. The outcome was really favorable, and the way Mattox handled the whole case was professional and overall hurdle free.

I can fully recommend him without any reservation.

Grateful Out-of-State Client Says Thanks

I was initially uncomfortable with retaining a lawyer to represent me out of state. However, I was quickly impressed with Trey and by his telephone manner and professionalism, and his reassurance as to how he would handle my case in court. Trey asked me specific questions, noted items and documents he would need and left me reassured that I had retained the right lawyer. As for my case, Trey was successful in defending me; my charges were dismissed. He served me well.

Thank You, Trey!
