Your Firm For DUI Defense In Southside Virginia
I represent adult and minor drivers, commercial drivers, first-time offenders and those with one or more DUI convictions on their record. While the specific penalties for a DUI conviction vary based on many factors, they commonly include:
- Jail time
- Financial penalties
- License suspension
- Higher insurance premiums
Factors such as a driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC), prior record, the presence of minor children in a vehicle, and reckless driving can result in even steeper penalties.
With my decades of experience handling DUI charges for Virginia drivers, I know how to approach each individual case. Some cases are most easily resolved by advocating for some form of pretrial diversion; others can be thrown out entirely because the government’s evidence is weak. As a former prosecutor, I understand the law and how the government handles these cases. I help my clients protect and assert their rights.
