Reckless Driving

Los Angeles Reckless Driving Lawyers

A person may be convicted of reckless driving if he or she drives with “willful or wanton” disregard for the safety of others [California Vehicle Code 23103]. Reckless driving is more than a simple traffic ticket, it is a criminal offense. If convicted, you will have a criminal record, your driver’s license may be suspended and you could be sentenced to serve time in county jail.

Reckless Driving Charges in Los Angeles

As stated above, the prosecution must prove that you were driving with willful or wanton disregard for the safety of others. Typically, reckless driving involves the type of conduct that is fairly egregious.

The fact that you were speeding alone will not typically be enough to establish willful or wanton disregard. However, if you were speeding while weaving in and out of traffic in an aggressive manner, driving on the side of the road or engaging in other highly dangerous acts, you could be found guilty of reckless driving.

As you can see, the determination of guilt or innocence in a reckless driving case is very subjective. A skilled negotiator and trial lawyer can make a significant difference in such cases. Our experienced and skilled defense attorneys are prepared to provide the strong defense you need.

As a former prosecutor, Daniel Perlman understands how to effectively negotiate with prosecutors and present issues that can improve your chances of obtaining a favorable resolution to your case. If retained as your counsel, we will review the facts of your case to determine if a case dismissal is possible and evaluate your chances for a favorable outcome at trial. If the prosecution has a strong case and you decide you do not want to fight your charges at trial, we may still be able to reach an agreement with the prosecution that will enable you to avoid jail time, a court-ordered driver’s license suspension and a criminal conviction.
