Traffic & Criminal Law Experience

John Weiland is a fast-thinking trial attorney who focuses on DUI, criminal, and traffic defense. He has successfully represented thousands of reckless driving, DUI/DWI, underage possession of alcohol, and drug possession and distribution clients across Virginia.

In each of the years from 2018-2021, John was the only attorney in the Central Virginia area to be recognized for DUI/DWI Defense by Super Lawyers. Before defending those accused of crimes and traffic violations, John litigated complex civil cases in Virginia and Federal courts. This research and writing-intensive background has provided John a unique analytical skill set for applying new, creative and successful legal arguments to otherwise extremely difficult criminal and traffic cases.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, John served as a Green Beret with the U.S. Army Special Forces. He maintains an ongoing promise to each of his clients to always fight to achieve the best possible outcome.
