Traffic Offense Lawyer in Newport News

Have you been cited for a traffic offense or moving violation in Virginia? With almost 40 years of experience, our Newport News traffic offense attorney can help you resolve this issue. We offer an abundance of information regarding traffic violations and how demerit points are received. Virginia's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) takes traffic violations seriously, which is why you will need the attention of our firm.

Penalties for Virginia Moving Violations

If you are facing a moving violation, the DMV will be notified and specific actions will be taken. You can face the following penalties if convicted of a traffic violation:

  • The conviction will be posted to your driving record
  • You will be assigned demerit points
  • Your license may be suspended
  • You may need to complete a driver improvement clinic
  • Your insurance company will be notified

Demerit Points
Each traffic violation carries specific demerit points that affect your ability to drive. Violations are grouped based on the number of DMV demerit points that are assigned to each violation. The lowest level offenses will result in a three-point violation, the next level will result in a four-point violation, and the most severe offenses will result in a six-point violation.

Posts to Your Record
A conviction of a traffic violation will remain on your record for a set amount of time depending on the severity of the offense. If you receive an order of revocation, your conviction can stay on your record for an extended period of time. Demerit points can remain on your record for two years from the date you committed the offense.
