Getting pulled over for driving under the influence is a horrible feeling. You might be embarrassed or worried about what will happen next – not only in court, but with your family, friends, job, and school. Your list of worries might start to feel overwhelming.
You are a good person. Sometimes good people make mistakes.
There are lawyers that forget that being brought up on charges can be a scary and surreal experience. I want to walk with you through this experience. Let me help shoulder your burdens and get you back to your life. I am not merely there to advocate for you in court (though that is a very important part of my job) I care about your emotional, financial, and family needs. I will take the time to answer your questions, explore your options, and prioritize what is the most important to you.
A DUI can result in serious consequences:
Your life could be forever changed. This is why it is vital to call an experienced DUI/DWI attorney who knows not just what the law is but how to advocate for you. The law is more complicated than it might appear at first glance. Even slight differences in facts between your case and your friends can have massive implications for the outcome. Do not risk a surprise on the day of your trial. The state will not hesitate in pursuing their case against you and you should not hesitate in finding an attorney that can fight for your rights.
If you’ve been charged with a DUI in the Commonwealth of Virginia you should:
- Get a blood test after being released if possible. Alcohol detection devices can be faulty so it is a good idea to get a second opinion on your BAC by having an independent blood test performed. By getting a blood test your attorney has a more complete arsenal to help raise a defense for you.
- Learn about your charges. Knowledge is power. Learning about the charges can help you identify a lawyer who knows the right questions to ask in consultations. Not all lawyers are equal just as with any profession.
- Call an experienced DUI/DWI attorney immediately.
