Need a Reckless Driving Lawyer in Broward or Palm Beach?

When a police officer is of the opinion that driving conduct rises to the level where an individual is intentionally placing persons or property at significant risk, they will often times charge the offense of Reckless Driving. Reckless Driving is a traffic criminal offense and a police officer can make an arrest as opposed to just writing a citation.

Because the allegation is criminal in nature, Reckless Driving needs to be handled with extreme care. If adjudication is not "withheld" a conviction will be placed on your record and will never be removed. Reckless Driving is also an offense that can often be negotiated as a reduction of charge if you have been charged with Driving Under the Influence.
