Legal Answers
85 Questions Answered

Q. Can you get a DUI removed from your record through community service?
A: No, if you have been convicted you are not eligible for expungement of the arrest. You also cannot remove the conviction with community service. A criminal conviction in Virginia is permanent. The only relief you may get is a pardon from the Governor if you file a petition.
Q. Hello I need help on a murder case, do I need a family lawyer or criminal lawyer?
A: Edward, you need a criminal lawyer experienced in the state where the offense allegedly occurred. Do not discuss the facts of the case online or with anyone who is not a lawyer. My advice is to seek a consultation in person with a criminal lawyer.
Q. If i got a continuance for a speeding ticket will i still have a chance to prepay it before the new court date
A: Yes, you can still prepay the ticket before the new court date if the case is continued from the initial court date.
Q. How do I get an arrest expunged in Richlands, Virginia, when I now live out of state? The arrest is 21 yeas old?
A: You will need to get a certified copy of the Warrant of Arrest and disposition. If it is no longer available, you will need to get a letter from the court certifying that the records were destroyed. You can then file a petition in the Circuit Court of that county for expungement. As part of the process, you will need to be fingerprinted locally and have the prints mailed to the State Police in Richmond. The petition will need to be served on the Commonwealth Attorney. You can request a Circuit Court hearing on the expungement when the prints are returned to the clerk of court by the State Police. Contact an experienced expungement lawyer if you need help with the process.
Q. I had a speeding ticket on 2/2/18 when looking over the ticket the officer wrote for the court date as 3/20/17 dissmiss?
A: No, the court will treat the mistake as harmless error. The clerk of court may contact you by mail to confirm the court date. You should also call them or check the court case information system to confirm your date to appear.
Q. Hi I hit a driver due to wrong way driver. What do I plea? I'm being charged with reckless driving.
A: Reckless Driving is a misdemeanor criminal charge and you may be facing jail time, high fines and loss of license. Contact an experienced traffic lawyer near you for a free consultation. They may be able to get the case dismissed or reduced to a traffic infraction. My office handles cases in Front Royal if you need advice. The number is 703-352-9044.
Q. A friend got a speeding ticket in 2005 in Madison county.
A: No, unfortunately in the General District Courts of Virginia you only have ten calendar days to post an appeal or up to 60 days to file a Motion for Reconsideration. The GDC courts generally destroy paper records after ten years. In my opinion, she has very little recourse after 13 years. She should contact the court to pay the fine and court costs and then reinstate her privilege to drive with the Virginia DMV (her right to drive here will more than likely be suspended for non-payment of the court fines).
Q. I was doing 43mph on a 25mph , it’s my first ticket and I was wondering how can I get no points and reduce the ticket
A: You may be able to get the charge reduced to a non moving violation with no points, or deferred for dismissal with completion of a driver improvement course. Contact my office for a free consultation and I will advise what needs to be done. The office number is 703-352-9044.
Q. Reckless driving charge/ 67 in a 45. Speedometer off by 5. Bought new car. Are chances hurt at trying to lower charge.
A: The calibration can still be used as mitigating evidence of the speed to possibly get the case deferred for dismissal or reduced to a traffic infraction with minimal points and fine. Depends on the county where you are charged. Contact an experienced traffic lawyer to get a free consultation. You have a good chance of avoiding a misdemeanor conviction on the Reckless Driving.
