Need a Reckless Driving Lawyer in Broward or Palm Beach?
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.
