Raj Dua – Reckless Driving Attorney
It may have seemed like a harmless enough action while you were on the road. You were stuck behind a truck on the highway and needed to get where you were going, so you crossed the centerline into the oncoming lane to pass it. You were driving the speed limit, but while the roads were covered in snow and ice from a winter storm and then you slid off into a ditch. You were moving to a new house or apartment and had your car packed to the gills with your belongings. Or maybe you just weren’t paying attention to your speed and looked down to find you were going more than 80 mph on the interstate, and got pulled over before you had a chance to drop down to the speed limit. If a police officer or state trooper spotted you doing any one of these things at the wrong moment — even if no one got hurt — you may have been charged with reckless driving.
Even if you are from out of state, a reckless driving conviction can mean suspension of your driver’s license — because what happens in one state usually will get reported another — and points on your driving record for a number of years. Because reckless driving is a crime in Virginia, you also can end up with a criminal record if you’re convicted.
If you’ve been charged with reckless driving, you’re likely feeling a lot of stress and worry about what will happen next and what you should do. Attorney Raj Dua can help. The Dua Law Firm can guide you through the legal process and help you make informed decisions about how to move forward — whether that’s fighting the charge and taking it to trial, or negotiating with the prosecutor for a lesser charge that will have a less severe effect on your life. Attorney Dua will be with you every step of the way and explain every piece of the process while working to get you the best possible result.

Types of Virginia Reckless Driving Offenses
It’s not uncommon for drivers from all over the country who are visiting the nation’s capitol and the surrounding areas of Virginia to be surprised when they’re pulled over for a traffic offense on Interstate 95, Interstate 66, Interstate 495, Route 267, or Route 286 and then charged with reckless driving. What’s even more shocking to many out-of-state drivers is that reckless driving is a crime, not just a traffic offense. Rather than just paying a ticket and moving on with your life, you’re suddenly facing the prospect of jail time and losing your driver’s license — and a lasting criminal record that will follow you to your home state.
Raj has extensive experience representing drivers from out-of-state who are charged with reckless driving in Virginia. He can help ease some of the pain of the process by appearing in court on your behalf so that you don’t have to go through the stress of traveling back to Virginia for court hearings. Because Raj has represented many out-of-state drivers, he has a thorough knowledge of how a Virginia reckless driving charge can affect your driving record or driver’s license at home, and work to avoid or lessen damaging long-term consequences.
Raj can navigate the legal system for you so that you don’t have to. As a seasoned trial lawyer, he knows the prosecutors, court clerks, and judges, and can use that knowledge to your advantage to fight for the best possible result for you.
Raj’s ability to help you doesn’t stop with your initial charge or trial. If you’re convicted, he can provide knowledgeable representation through the appeal process, if you choose that route. He has taken cases to Virginia’s appellate courts and argued to get improper convictions overturned. The stakes are high once you’ve already been convicted, but Raj’s dedication and experience can make all the difference when it comes to your future. Given the complexity of appealing convictions, it’s important to have the right defense.
Raj also has extensive experience helping clients get their records expunged after a reckless driving charge is dismissed. Getting your record expunged means the arrest will no longer show up in a background check when you apply for a job, a security clearance, or an apartment. Raj can help with the process of petitioning for expungement, and with making the best argument to the court why your record should be expunged.
Your reckless driving conviction doesn’t have to stay with you forever. Raj can present you with the many options and help you determine which one is the right path for you. If you’ve been charged with reckless driving or previously convicted, call The Dua Law Firm at for a free consultation today.
