Speeding Tickets and DUI Arrests in Virginia Beach

Perhaps you don’t even live in Virginia but were stopped while driving on I-64 or I-264 — unaware of state speed limits. Virginia’s highways generally have speed limits of 55 miles per hour. If you are used to traveling on highways with a 70 miles per hour speed limit and forgetfully drive 75 miles per hour while in Virginia, you may be facing a reckless driving charge as an out-of-state driver.

DUI arrests are common among visitors as well. Local law enforcement often set up DUI enforcement checks in tourist areas on holiday weekends — you are not the first person to fall into such a trap. You deserve practical information and honest advice from a Virginia out-of-state DUI and traffic ticket defense lawyer.

Will You Have to Appear in Person?

  • If the charge is serious enough to include jail time as a possible penalty, you will have to return to Virginia to appear in court. If this is the case, we will do our best to schedule your court appearance so that it inconveniences you as little as possible.
  • If the citation does not include jail time as a possible penalty, we may be able to petition the court to have the case tried in your absence.
