WHAT SOME CLIENTS SAY ABOUT ANTHONY MONTAGNA, III

  • “He is a great lawyer, my grandfather loves him. Would recommend him to anyone. If I could put more than 5 stars I would!”
  • “If I could give 6 stars I would! Mr. Montagna was the attorney we needed for the traffic violation! Our case was dismissed in under a minute and I thank God and Mr. Montagna for representing us!”
  • “I had the opportunity to meet Anthony Montagna III recently. He was courteous, kind, and professional.
    As soon as the case started his client was put at ease because Attorney Montagna was in full control. His expertise was exceptional and the outcome could not have been better.”
  • “Honestly , Mr. Montagna treats like you are his family the way he cares, he takes care of his people , I was doing triple digit speed on a 60 and lord I thought it was over for me in that courtroom , he’s a genius because I literally got away with no time .. he’s that man!”
  • “Mr. Montagna prepared me perfectly for my reckless driving ticket which was 68 in a 45. Mr. Montagna was the best prepared attorney in the courtroom. I followed his instructions and was able to pay court costs and the case was dismissed. Whenever I had a question he was there to assist. Well worth the money spent.”
  • “Thanks to Mr. Anthony Montagna and his team for getting my case dismissed today. I really appreciate it”
  • “I had a reckless driving case today doing 95 in a 60 and added with unsafe lane change. He helped me walk out with a $100 fine before court costs. I highly recommend Mr. Montagna to be your lawyer and I highly recommend you do the stuff he requests you do to. It’ll help you out a lot. I would hire him again in a heart beat. Thank you Mr. Anthony Montagna for helping me with my reckless driving case”
  • “Anthony Montagna is absolutely one of the best if not THE BEST lawyer for reckless driving, I chose him because he had great reviews and when we sat down and talked he showed me all that I needed to get done and showed that he cared. He is very concise and aggressive and represents you in the best way possible. I had a reckless driving ticket from going 92/65 and he got it dropped to a defective equipment violation. He represented me in the very best way possible and was very quick and informative about the whole process. I wish I could give more stars, if you have a reckless driving charge, this is the guy.”
  • “Mr. Montagna represented me today and achieved the best possible outcome….dismissal of charges! My case was Reckless Driving (91 in a 65) along I-64. As a military service member and VA non-resident, I was unaware of the seriousness of a RD charge (class I misdemeanor punishable by up to 1 yr in jail and $2500 fine). Following charges I consulted with 4 different lawyers and decided to go with Anthony because of his approach during our consult. He emphasized the seriousness of the charge, made no guarantees regarding an outcome, and described to me in detail what our defense strategy should be on the day in court. He outlined a series of tasks I should complete prior to the court appearance that would give me the best possible chance at a favorable outcome. I quickly related with his candor and demeanor, and felt early in our consult the comfort in a lawyer that I was looking for. I followed his recommendations to the detail and went well above the community service hours he initially recommended (when it comes to community service, clearly more is better)! Mr. Montagna and his staff were extremely responsive whenever I had questions! I think I appreciated that part the most because this entire situation proved rather stressful considering I had absolutely no experience with the judicial system before this experience. His performance in court was just as impressive! He presented my defense with calm and poise. He guided me through a line of questioning before the Judge that displayed that I both took the charges seriously and worked hard to atone. The experience overall was rather humbling, and I appreciate greatly Anthony’s representation throughout!! If you find yourself in a bind, you’d do well to give Mr. Montagna a call!”
  • Mr. Montagna helped me with a reckless driving ticket 91 mph in a 55 mph zone, reduced to speeding. Thank you sir!
  • “Mr. Montagna was wonderful and so helpful in my case. He and his team were accessible and the communication was quick and concise. They gave me all the tools to get my case dismissed at court costs. Hopefully, I never get a ticket like that again, but if I do – I know what team I am calling. Thank you again!”

AS VIRGINIA BEACH RECKLESS DRIVING LAWYERS, WE KNOW HOW TO CHALLENGE RADAR, LIDAR, AND PACING BY THE POLICE

Anthony Montagna, III is familiar with LIDAR (Laser), RADAR and pacing by the police when our client is charged with Reckless Driving in Virginia Beach, VA. Anthony always suggests reviewing the calibrations for the speed monitoring device. 

Pursuant to state law, the calibrations must occur within 6 months of the Reckless Driving or Speeding charge.  If the officer fails to have the calibrations with him, the Reckless Driving or Speeding charge can be dismissed.

WHAT IS RADAR?

RADAR is an acronym for Radio Detection and Ranging.  RADAR allows the police to measure the speed of your moving vehicle. 

Usually, the law enforcement office will determine your speed by emitting a microwave from an antenna. When the antenna emits the microwave, the microwave will reflect off your vehicle.  Thereafter, the microwave will return to the RADAR unit, and your speed will be displayed for the law enforcement officer to see. 

If the officer was using mobile RADAR, his vehicle was either travelling in the same direction as your vehicle or in the opposite direction of your vehicle.  If the officer was using stationary RADAR, his vehicle was parked.

POSSIBLE ERRORS WITH RADAR:

  1. Antenna position 
  2. Look past 
  3. Cosine 
  4. Double bounce 
  5. Beam reflection
  6. Road sign
  7. Radio interference
  8. Fan Interference

WHAT IS LIDAR?

LIDAR is an an acronym for Light Detection and Ranging. LIDAR measures your vehicle speed by using light energy by a LASER device.  LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission Radiation. Law enforcement know that LIDAR is designed for stationary use only.  Because LIDAR can only be used for stationary operations, the police know that LIDAR should not be used from moving vehicles.

For LIDAR, an officer selects a single target. The officer will use his LIDAR device by aiming at a reflective spot on your vehicle.  Frequently, the officer will aim for your license plate or your headlight.

After aiming the device, the officer will press the trigger on his device.  The officer will receive a speed-reading almost immediately.

FACTORS AFFECTING LIDAR:

  1. Radio frequency
  2. Light devices
  3. Electrical lines
  4. Windshield
  5. Weather
  6. Low voltage
  7. Sweep effect used by officer
  8. Cosine
  9. LIDAR jammer

MAJOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN LIDAR AND RADAR:

While LIDAR and RADAR are both forms of electromagnetic radiation, there are difference. LIDAR and RADAR have different frequencies and wavelength.  Additionally, RADAR can be used by the police from moving and stationary vehicles, but LIDAR is only designed for stationary use.
