Suggest a good Traffic Lawyer?

I recently received a a ticket for reckless driving after a small fender bender. Though it's only an infraction, I'm worried about what the ticket will do to the cost of my insurance, points on my license and my overall driving record. Any suggestions on a good lawyer? Any idea how much they cost? One lawyer told me $1,000.

Reckless driving is not an infraction. In Virginia it's a criminal offense (a class one misdemeanor, which carries a penalty of a fine of up to $2,500 and/or jail time). Calling an attorney is a very good idea.

While I have not had to use his services for traffic court, I know Eric Kessel (pronounced kuh-SELL, stress on the second syllable) is very knowledgeable. You can find his contact info at the Virginia State Bar attorney directory at the following address: http://206.113.151.134/attsearch/search.aspx (if it doesn't return his info, type in his name).

Kosa So at Mason Law Firm. Got me out of two reckless driving tickets, and driving on a suspended license. He charged me $600.

I recently used Michael Hollingsworth from Irving & Irving. He got it reduced to an infraction and did a nice job.

You don't need a lawyer. Fairfax will provide special room and board for you.

Jasmine,
The same thing, happened to me. FCPD charged me with reckless for a minor fender bender. These two law firms are great in court, they are well respected, and they know the system remarkably well:

I'm not sure about getting referrals of the FFU. Are you there to help me or add 3-5 at the state pen. Part of getting a referral is that you TRUST the referror, not just a general call for help. Looking for an lawyer try:
