HOW VIRGINIA LAW APPLIES TO YOU

Having handled Thousands of Criminal Traffic Cases in all the Courts of Northern Virginia, we understand how critical your job and/or security clearance are to your livelihood and your family. If you are convicted of Eluding, you are facing not only significant jail time and a substantial fine; but you will also receive a Permanent Criminal Record with the FBI and Homeland Security and you could potentially lose your job; your security clearance; future employment opportunities; demerit points on your DMW transcript; the loss of driver’s license; and your future.

In order for the Commonwealth to prove he charge of Eluding a Law Enforcement Officer, they must prove:

1. That you received a visible or audible signal from any Law-Enforcement Officer to bring your motor vehicle to a stop; and

2. That either:

  • a. You drove such motor vehicle in a willful and wanton disregard of such signal; or
  • b. You attempted to escape, on foot, in the vehicle, or by any other means.

If you are found guilty of Eluding, the punishment can be very severe. Eluding is a CLASS 2 MISDEMEANOR, punishable by up to 6 MONTHS IN JAIL and a fine of up to $1,000, or Both! If the court determines that in addition to the above, you also drove your motor vehicle in a willful and wanton disregard of such signal so as to interfere with or endanger the operation of the Law-Enforcement vehicle or endanger another, then the Eluding charge becomes a CLASS 6 FELONY punishable by up to 5 YEARS IN JAIL!

In addition to the significant Discovery, Due Diligence and Legal Work we do to get your Eluding case Dismissed, your participation in appropriate programs and classes prior to Court can significantly increase your odds of an even more successful outcome … such as:

  • Letters of Recommendation
  • Alternatives to Jail Programs

  • 4-Hour Aggressive/Reckless Driving
    Class
