Even good drivers sometimes get traffic tickets, and it might be tempting not to take them very seriously.


But even simple speeding tickets can have severe consequences. When you consider the fines, court costs, and increased insurance premiums that come with a guilty verdict, a ticket can cost hundreds, and possibly thousands of dollars.


For more serious traffic charges, the consequences might even include jail time. For example, speeding 20 miles or more over the limit, or more than 85 miles per hour, may result in a charge of reckless driving, which in Virginia is a class one misdemeanor. Penalties may include hefty fines, a suspension of your license, and even incarceration. 


Regardless of your charge, your rights must be protected. But when you walk into court alone, you may not know what those rights are, or how to go about defending yourself. Instead, you can walk into court alongside one of the skilled attorneys at The Law Office of Gary Byler. They'll work to protect your rights and your record.


Drunk driving is a serious charge. For defendants who are found guilty, Virginia imposes mandatory minimum penalties, even for a first offense. These penalties include fines, license suspension, required participation in a counseling program, the installation of a vehicle ignition interlock device, and possibly an active jail sentence. Aggravating factors, such as an elevated blood alcohol concentration (BAC), an accident, or the presence of minors in the vehicle, can worsen the penalties. And, with each successive DUI conviction, the mandatory sentences become increasingly serious.


These penalties are more than just inconvenient and expensive. They can have lasting consequences on your career, your family, and even your freedom.


While most citizens don’t fully understand the process or their rights, an experienced defense attorney can ensure that your rights are protected throughout. Don’t take chances with something so important. The attorneys at the Law Office of Gary Byler will treat your case with the seriousness it deserves.
