Information

A pre-recorded video replay of the October 2017 live seminar, Defending Serious Traffic Cases: Strategies and Tactics in Representing Clients.


Topics covered include:

  • Current aspects of the law related to traffic offenses
  • Changes from the 2017 General Assembly Session regarding license suspension and restoration
  • Hear from an accident reconstructionist, and learn how to use one to help your case
  • Relevant substantive and procedural differences from around the state
If your traffic practice encompasses more than DUI, this seminar is for you. And if you seek to begin a traffic practice, this seminar is a great place to start.

This seminar is the companion to Virginia CLE®’s biennial DUI Defense in Virginia program. It provides the basic theory and strategies on effective representation of clients charged with reckless driving, speeding, eluding, hit-and-run, and driving on suspended or no license, as well as representing habitual offenders and juveniles. You will learn about changes in the law of license suspensions. You will hear from a panel of judges who will share their views from the bench and how to be a more effective advocate for your client.

New this year, a local police officer discusses accident reconstruction and how it can be used in serious traffic offense cases.
