Judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys don't often see things the same way, but according to a recent Virginia Lawyers Weekly article, many of them agree that Virginia police are wrongly ticketing some Virginia drivers for not having proof of insurance during traffic stops. Virginia law requires drivers to have insurance or pay an uninsured motorist fee, but it does not require drivers to carry proof of insurance in their vehicles. Mr. Paul discusses this with Shawn Yancy on Fox 5 News at 10.
Since graduating from George Mason University School of Law in 1988, I have had over 20 years of trial experience, defending citizens accused of a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony offenses in Northern Virginia. Since 1999, my practice has been almost exclusively focused on the Fairfax County Courts, allowing me to gain an increasing familiarity with the Courts, Prosecutors and Judges here in Fairfax County, Virginia.
