  • “Mr. Hardenbergh appeared on my behalf…and negotiated a ‘Defective Equipment’ charge. That means no criminal record and no points!”

    “On February 13th (a Friday no less) while en route to South Carolina I was pulled over while passing a tractor-trailer going down hill. I noticed that my speed was nearing 80 mph, but as I neared the bottom of the hill I knew I would be back to the posted limit. But it was too late! After I had found a safe area to pull over the officer informed me that I was going 84 mph through his radar! I did not argue with him but accepted his citation and continued on to S.C. thinking about how I would handle the ticket. At first I thought of just paying the fine and letting it go. After all, I had been driving for over 40 years with only one other citation, no accidents, and no speeding tickets, so I thought that would be a good decision. I was to find out that was a faulty decision. It was about a week later that I received a mailing from Mr. Hardenbergh, Attorney, filling me in on exactly what it means to exceed 80 mph in Virginia. I was shocked to find out that I could be convicted of a criminal defense and have a record if found guilty. I had also received other letters from additional law offices, but his letter and information seemed more personal to me, so I called his office to obtain more information. After discussing the situation I made a good decision: I hired his firm to represent me. I was then assigned a Legal assistant/Paralegal to help me prepare my case. Her name is Christina, and I cannot thank her enough for all that she helped me with, her patience and also encouragement during the process. She answered all my questions and was in contact with me right up to the judgment, of which I was very pleased. One of the things she had me do was to have dynamometer test done on my speedometer. My car is a 2010, so it is somewhat new, but the test showed that the faster I drove the more inaccurate the indication of speed in my favor! So, armed with this information and all the other documents I had sent, Mr. Hardenbergh appeared on my behalf on my court date and negotiated a ‘Defective Equipment’ charge. That means no criminal record and no points! I gladly paid my fine and court costs, which could have been much, much more plus a criminal record. I highly recommend the Law Firm of Charles V. Hardenbergh if you find yourself in trouble with the traffic laws, especially the Reckless Driving charge. They do a very good job and are a pleasure to work with in preparing your case and in the support you receive while you are waiting for the court date. You will be glad you did!”

  • “I am truly grateful for the sound experience the Hardenbergh team brought to my case and the kindness that was expressed over my situation.”

    “Every motorist in the eastern United States knows how dense and treacherous I-95 can be on any given day. The private traveler and every form of commercial vehicle are funneled down to as little as two lanes in both directions. Someone is always going (or wants to be going) faster than you. My most recent trip south through the I-95 corridor was for a much-needed vacation. There was no hurry, with check-in time not until 3:00 p.m. But the constant push and pace of traffic that day drew me in. Getting pulled over for speeding while passing a pack of cars is bad enough, but when the deputy sheriff returned to my window with the paperwork, I was shocked to see that he was charging me with Reckless Driving (85 in a 70)! That incident did much to spoil my vacation, wondering and worrying about what I was to do about this charge. I knew I needed a lawyer. When I returned home a week later, my mailbox was stuffed with letters from attorneys throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. My first impression was to say, ‘What a racket!’ I took the time to read over every piece of information. What impressed me most about the Hardenbergh literature was how easy it is to be charged with reckless driving in Virginia, as compared to neighboring states. Breaching the threshold of 80 mph here is a recipe for disaster. More depressing was how grave the prospects were for a fair outcome at trial without proper representation. By contracting the Hardenbergh team, I was encouraged and given clear instructions on what I needed to do to help build viable evidence for my case. I learned that not all speedometer calibrations, specifically GPS, are accurate or certified. By using an approved shop with a dynometer calibration across the full span of speed range, my vehicle speedometer was found to be significantly incorrect (slower) at higher speeds. This was evidence that I was traveling at or above that 80 mph danger zone without knowing… In my case, one of best possible outcomes occurred. Although the case was not dismissed, the charge was reduced to ‘Defective Equipment,’ and no points were assessed on my driving record. Mr. Hardenbergh also convinced the court to reduce the fine! I am truly grateful for the sound experience the Hardenbergh team brought to my case and the kindness that was expressed over my situation. This was an expensive mistake that could have resulted in a permanent criminal record for me. My advice to all who read this: Don’t hurry on I-95, even if you’re NOT in a hurry!”

  • “Mr. Hardenbergh’s law firm is definitely the best one for defending traffic charges in Virginia.”

    “Mr. Hardenbergh’s law firm is definitely the best one for defending traffic charges in Virginia. As a non-Virginia resident and also a non-U.S. citizen, having a misdemeanor on my records would ruin my permanent U.S. Work authorization. Mr. Hardenbergh and his team helped me since the beginning of my 84/70 RD case, providing me with the technical (and psychological) support I needed to go after the evidence and get successful results. My case ended up with just a defective equipment fine, and I’m sure this result wouldn’t be possible without their professionalism and expertise in the traffic case area. I owe my future career and personal life as a U.S. permanent resident to him and his team. Special thanks to Selena Reynoso, who was always promptly answering my several questions and comforting me through the whole process. I dealt with a very professional team indeed!”

  • “I will recommend your firm to anyone who is faced with a similar situation.”

    “I want to thank Mr. Hardenbergh, Selena, and Becky for the work they did to defend me in my Reckless Driving case. I appreciate the advice I was given regarding compiling evidence to present a convincing case to the judge. I was very happy when I learned that the case was dismissed. I will recommend your firm to anyone who is faced with a similar situation.”

  • “Having served a lifetime for my country, it was truly troubling to face the potential of having such a black mark on my name and reputation.”

    Mr. Hardenbergh, I am writing this letter to thank you and your staff for representing me in the reckless driving charge that I was facing, for an infraction that occurred on 4 April 2015. Shortly after receiving the ticket, I realized even with my 31 year career serving on active duty in the Army and 6 years serving as a government civilian in the Marine Corps, I faced the potential of having a criminal record because of the reckless driving charge. This also had the potential of impacting my ability to maintain a security clearance, critical for the expertise that I provide to the Department of Defense. However, your team, particularly Christina Moore, was extremely helpful in guiding me through the process to prepare for court so that they would have all of the information necessary to defend me in court. Christina was totally responsive to my questions and gave me all the assurances and information necessary to alleviate my concerns. The result, as you know, was the dismissal of the reckless driving charge and my relief that I would not have to deal with any potential fallout from a criminal record. Having served a lifetime for my country, it was truly troubling to face the potential of having such a black mark on my name and reputation. Again, thanks to your team, I can continue to serve my country in an area of expertise that is critical to the protection and survivability of our deployed Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.
