How to Find a Traffic Defense Lawyer

If you have received a traffic ticket in Virginia, VA, you can find a traffic defense lawyer by:

Search on Avvo.com or Justia.com. Avvo is one of the few websites which rates attorneys on a 1 to 10 scale while also providing online reviews from former clients.

Once you have found some lawyers you are interested in, here are some additional tips and questions to ask:

Check the lawyer’s online reviews. An attorney with bad reviews or only handful of online reviews is a red flag

Make sure the attorney is someone you can actually get ahold of and speak with, or someone who will return your call.

While paralegals and legal assistants can be very helpful, be sure to speak with an actual attorney

Interview a few lawyers before making a decision. When you do, ask questions such as:

  • How long have you been practicing law?
  • What is your experience with traffic cases?
  • What are your fees?
  • Who from the law firm would actually be representing me in court?
    • Many times, the lawyer you hire isn’t actually the lawyer who will appear for you in court. You want to be sure the attorney you want after doing your research is the one handling your case, and not a junior associate

It is important to remember that a traffic ticket in Virginia is a serious matter. If you have received a traffic ticket, you should contact a traffic defense lawyer as soon as possible.
