DUI Defense Lawyers
Every state in the United States has laws prohibiting driving under the influence, known as DUI. If you have been charged with a DUI, the experience can be scary, embarrassing, and confusing. Finding the right legal representation quickly is key to understanding your case. The three crucial elements that will drive your DUI case are: evidence of bad driving, performance on field sobriety test, and your breath or blood test results.

It is through our conversations with you, prior experience and deep knowledge of the law that we can often find police or prosecutor mistakes or uncover unique details that can build sympathy from the judge, such as driving behavior when pulled over.

A driver is considered to be driving under the influence if he or she has a blood alcohol level equal to or greater than 0.08%. DUI cases can be difficult to defend because Virginia has strict DUI laws as well as highly sophisticated and accurate devices to test blood alcohol levels. A DUI charge in Virginia is a class one misdemeanor and is punishable by one year in jail, 12 months suspended license and a $2,500.00 fine. The penalties and charges may change based on the driver’s level of intoxication and prior DUI charges. A person may also be charged with driving under the influence of drugs, both prescription and illegal drugs.
