I Can Step In And Help
I will carefully review every aspect of your arrest – from the police stop to the manner in which a standardized field sobriety test was administered, or blood or urine samples taken – to ensure that your constitutional rights were not violated. Often, there are valid reasons to question the tactics used during a DWI arrest.
The consequences of a DWI conviction are too serious to leave these matters in the hands of an inexperienced lawyer. Penalties you may face include:
- Driver’s license suspension
- Expensive fines
- Mandatory drug and alcohol abuse treatment
- Community service
- A permanent criminal record
- License restrictions
- Mandatory ignition interlock devices
Virginia’s DUI laws are regularly amended to increase the severity of the penalties for convicted drunk drivers. If you record blood alcohol content of .15 or above, you are required to have an ignition interlock device installed in any vehicle you operate and serve an active jail sentence. For a second, third or fourth DUI, or when an accident or accident with injuries took place, you may face a lengthy prison sentence. A third DUI offense results in a minimum of six months in jail if the earlier conviction was within five years.
