Norfolk Reckless Driving Defense

NorfolkCourtComplexIf you were charged with reckless driving in Norfolk, you will be summoned to appear at the General District Court in Norfolk. The court house is located at 150 St. Pauls Blvd, Norfolk, VA 23510-2772. There are several judges for the Norfolk General District Court. The current judges are: Hon. Joan E. Mahoney, Hon. S. Clark Daugherty, Hon. Bruce A. Wilcox, Hon. Michael Charles Rosenblum an Hon. Tasha D. Scott. Judges rotate on the bench so it is hard to predict which judge you will get.

Typically, traffic cases and reckless driving cases are heard at either 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., or 11:00 a.m.  You should check your summons for the exact date, time, and court room your appearance is required at.
The Norfolk Commonwealth Attorney’s office typically doesn’t get involved with prosecuting a reckless driving charge at the General District Court level. However, the Commonwealth Attorney’s office can get involved if it wanted to.  Gregory D. Underwood is the current Commonwealth Attorney.  He has many Assistant Commonwealth Attorneys working under him.

If you are still wondering, “Do I really need an Attorney?”, please read this article.  I would be glad to go over the specifics of your case with you.  In cases where there is enough evidence to find you guilty, I can make an argument to have your charges reduced based on mitigating factors.
