Facing reckless driving charges can be intimidating. The penalties are serious – a potential prison sentence, steep fines, and points on your license. But a charge does not equal a conviction. There are ways to fight your charges.
At The Claiborne Firm, we want our clients to have hope for a favorable outcome. We use knowledge and education to ease our clients’ fears about their future. We spend the time it takes to develop an aggressive defense, and we don’t back down from a tough fight in court.
In Georgia, reckless driving is defined as operating a vehicle in a way that shows “reckless disregard” for safety. This includes things like speeding, tailgating, weaving through traffic, or merging too close.
No, in Georgia, reckless driving is charged as a misdemeanor.
The penalties depend on the severity of each case. Penalties for reckless driving could include a prison sentence up to one year, fines up to $1,000, probation, and community service.
We keep our caseloads low so that we can spend adequate time on each case. By giving each client individualized attention, we have the time to thoroughly investigate each case and build a strong defense. Each reckless driving case is unique, and we are known for developing creative defenses in challenging situations.
Quite simply, we are committed to seeking justice for our clients. We built our reputation on fighting inequality in the criminal justice system, and we fight aggressively for our clients’ rights. That means deeply investigating each case, coming up with novel defenses, deploying our public relations efforts, if necessary, and never backing down.
