FFX Lawyer

Hey fellow M3'ers -- I got pulled over in Fairfax County for going a little too fast, and now have a court date. Any recommendations for a good lawyer?

Ahhh. I got it. Okay. I am looking to buy some accessories for my car. I'll post a WTB. By the way, if not odd, feel free to email me at skated23@gmail.com.

Do you have aftermarket wheels?
See if you can prove your speedo is off
You are 3 miles away from speeding as opposed to reckless
Reckless in VA is treated the same as murderers and drug dealers

good point. You can say that you are running larger tires and didnt know the speedo does not automatically adjust etc and therefore you were running 10-15% off with the speedometer. i hope this is your first offense.

how fast were you going? I got a ticket few years ago and had to get a lawyer. The cop of course did not have me on radar.

20 over is reckless already, best way to deal with it is to hire a lawyer that is next to the court that has connections with the systems. Try Paul McGlone 703-273-2750, he helped me reduced an 85 on 55 reckless to a one point violation. I saw a few went to jail doing ranging 82 to 92 that day, dont risk it.

Yea get a lawyer if you are looking at a reckless. The police and court systems around here are a racket unfortunately... We the citizens really need to do something about it and reign these thugs in.

I used Stuart Sears of from John Zwerling's law firm. He got my reckless ticket dropped to an improper driving ticket. I posted their website below.
