Most traffic offenses involve a fine and points against your license. But reckless driving and driving on a suspended license are misdemeanor crimes, with harsher punishments and possible jail time.
You must take these offenses seriously and should not handle it yourself. Criminal defense lawyer Chris Adams has helped many clients beat these charges or soften the consequences.

Consequences Of Reckless Driving
Jail time is a possibility if convicted of reckless driving, along with the other penalties. For drivers under 21, it results in automatic license suspension. For other drivers, it is 4 points toward losing your license.
Many people are cited for speeding and reckless driving — if so, we can often get the reckless charge dismissed and take the consequences for the lesser violation. Mr. Adams is also prepared to take your case to trial if police have no evidence that your driving constituted a reckless disregard for safety.
We Defend All Serious Traffic Offenses:
- Racing on a street or highway
- Fleeing police
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Habitual traffic violator (three serious offenses in five years)
Were You Charged With Driving On A Suspended License?
Whether your license is suspended from a DUI or from too many traffic tickets, it is a serious crime to continue driving. A conviction could mean mandatory jail time, plus high fines, community service, probation, extended license suspension and higher insurance rates.
Many clients were never properly notified of the license suspension, and believed they were properly licensed at the time of their citation or arrest. Other clients pled guilty to a previous traffic violation without knowing it was a suspendable offense. Mr. Adams has had success getting charges dismissed for these reasons, or negotiated charges down to lesser offenses with lower penalties.
