Do I Need an Attorney for My Reckless Driving Case?

Do I Need an Attorney for My Reckless Driving Case?

This is a question we hear very often.  “Do I need at attorney for my reckless driving case?”  The answer, as with almost any question you can ask an attorney, is – it depends.

It depends on why you were charged.  Was it reckless driving by speed, for driving behavior, for an accident?  It depends on your driving record.  Are you typically a saintly driver or did you have three speeding tickets last year?  It depends on what jurisdiction your case is in.  In Fairfax, you can not negotiate with a prosecutor unless you have a lawyer.  In Alexandria, the prosecutor will often seek Reckless Lawyeryou out.

The best advice we can give to every person who is charged with reckless driving, regardless of your situation, is to at least call an attorney and take advantage of a free consultation.  We pride ourselves on our honesty, expertise, and transparency.  We will happily explain to you your circumstances and your options.

Feel free to contact the attorneys at Henson Pachuta, PLLC by phone at 703-822-4701, by email at, or at our office at 4011 Chain Bridge Road, Suite 200, Fairfax, Virginia 22030.

Why do we offer free consultations?

When you have been charged with a crime, it is one of the most stressful moments of your life.  Most people are just not sure what to expect and what steps they should take.  In one conversation we can usually determine what the likely outcomes of your case are what you can do today to get the best outcome possible.

We got into this line of work because we wanted to help people.  If we don’t think you need a lawyer, we will tell you so.  We hope that you will still find our consultation helpful and will consider passing our name along to friends or family who find themselves facing a criminal or traffic charge in Northern Virginia some day.

If we do think you would benefit from having a lawyer, we will tell you so.  We can tell you about our particular qualifications and experience, and we hope that you will choose us as your lawyers for your case.
