Protecting Your Rights From Arrest To Trial
Virginia law enforcement, state prosecutors and our courts take drunk driving charges very seriously. Severe penalties exist for those who are convicted of DUI offenses. Even a first offense will result in substantial fines, mandated alcohol education programs and a year-long driver’s license suspension, and may result in jail time. A subsequent offense can even escalate to a felony charge depending on the circumstances.
At our firm, our attorneys look at all the facts to make sure nothing is overlooked and that your story is being told.
Whether you were pulled over because of a traffic violation or you’re facing a DUI for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or a refusal charge, we will always take the course of action you want that makes sense for your situation.
Protecting You From Police Misconduct
We know the flaws of field sobriety and breath testing conducted prior to an arrest. We also know that an officer can easily overstep their bounds and wrongfully arrest you. Misconduct like this can cause charges to be dropped or a case dismissed, which is why you should never automatically plead guilty to charges.
