Dinwiddie County Traffic Attorney

Dinwiddie County Traffic Attorney

Dinwiddie County has become notorious for the enforcement of traffic violations. The officers in this area charge a variety of Code of Virginia violations, specifically reckless driving and speeding.  Moreover, if you have received one of these violations please contact Dinwiddie County traffic attorney Trey Mattox.

Conveniently, Dinwiddie County is located on Interstate 85 just south of Interstate 85 and 95 interchange. Obviously, this section of Interstate 85 proves to be especially tricky to motorists unfamiliar with the area. Notably, the speed limit on Interstate 85 through Dinwiddie ranges from 55 miles per hour to 70.  Therefore, many of our clients find themselves in the unfortunate position of missing one sign and accidentally speeding. Additionally, both Dinwiddie Sheriff’s deputies and Virginia State Troopers patrol this section of Interstate 85 heavily. Clearly, they routinely issue tickets to individuals in this situation. 

Fortunately, the judge in Dinwiddie will take into consideration the direction of travel. Correspondingly, the Court will determine whether the speed limit was climbing or falling. Furthermore, understanding certain traffic opportunities in localities is something our practice specializes in and our clients value. Additionally, Dinwiddie County traffic attorney regularly represents clients charged with traffic crimes and infractions throughout Dinwiddie County including DeWitt, Ammon, Darvils, McKenney, Church Road, Ford, Sutherland, Wilsons and Carson.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving violations are very serious charges in Virginia. As a result, a conviction carries penalties like fines, license suspension, and class 1 misdemeanor.  Moreover, these consequences can have very long lasting effects. Additionally, this can burden even the most proactive motorist. Therefore, it is very important to speak with an experienced Dinwiddie County traffic attorney.


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
  • 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, a knowledgable Dinwiddie County traffic attorney will help minimize the chance of negative outcome.
