  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol:  Our DUI attorneys are ready to undertake the most effective legal defense possible.  Whether it is your first DUI or you have previous DUI convictions, the level of alcohol, as determined by your breath or blood test, impacts your case.  We will take time to explain to you the legal consequences of a DUI conviction.
  • Speeding Tickets: We can provide you with advice on whether you should pre-pay your ticket or hire a speeding ticket attorney to handle the case.  Our attorneys will identify the best way to help you avoid the accumulation of excessive demerit points and increased insurance premiums.
  • Hit and Run:  Our lawyers have successfully defended numerous clients charged with hit and run.  The law in Virginia requires that a person involved in an accident stop at or near an accident; failure to do so can result in this charge. Hit and run may be a non-jailable misdemeanor charge or a felony depending on if someone was injured or if there was any property damage.  A person found guilty of hit and run may have their driver’s license suspended for up to six months without any ability to obtain a restricted license.
  • Reckless Driving – Accident:  If you are charged with reckless driving or failure to maintain control as a result of an accident you are charged with a crime.  We are ready to determine an effective legal defense for you, so we can help you avoid a criminal conviction, loss of your driving privileges, increased insurance premiums, and the accumulation of excessive demerit points.
  • Reckless Driving by Speed:  Reckless driving by speed is a crime in Virginia.  In fact, it is the same level of offense as a DUI.  We know a reckless driving by speed conviction may increase your insurance premiums and may, even, lead to the suspension of your driving privileges.  Our  law firm is focused on helping you avoid a reckless driving criminal conviction, increased insurance premiums, license suspension, and the accumulation of excessive demerit points.
  • No Operator’s License:  It is a crime to drive in Virginia without first obtaining a valid driver’s license.  Over the years, our attorneys have represented numerous clients charged with no operator’s license.  Si habla espanol, por favor sabe que nuestro bufete de abogodos tiene abogados que habla espanol.  Podemos ayudarle con su cargo de manejar sin una licencia.
  • Driving on Suspended or Revoked License: We are ready to help you identify the reason for your license suspension and take you through the steps necessary for you to get reinstated.  A conviction for a third offense of driving on a suspended or revoked license has a ten day mandatory minimum jail sentence.  With that in mind, we will attempt to obtain a court date for you that will provide you the best opportunity to reinstate your driver’s license prior to trial.  This may help us negotiate a lesser charge on your behalf.
