Our qualified and experienced lawyers defend:
- DUI charges: Our attorneys are ready to put on the most effective legal defense possible. Whether it is your first DUI or you have previous DUI convictions, we know 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.
- Hit and Run charges: Our Chesterfield hit and run attorneys have successfully defended numerous clients charged with this crime. The law in Virginia requires a person involved in an accident to stop at or near the accident and provide the other people involved with specific information including the driver’s identification and contact information. The penalties for hit and run vary. Hit and run may be a non-jailable misdemeanor charge or a felony; depending on whether somebody was injured or the extent of any property damage. A person found guilty of hit and run in Virginia may have their driver’s license suspended for up to six months without any ability to obtain a restricted license.
- Reckless Driving by Speed or Accident: We know a reckless driving by speed conviction may increase your insurance premiums and may lead to the suspension of your driving privileges. If you are charged with reckless driving or failure to maintain control as a result of an accident you are charged with a crime. Our law firm is dedicated to helping you avoid a reckless driving criminal conviction, increased insurance premiums, license suspension, and the accumulation of excessive demerit points.
- Speeding Tickets: Our speeding ticket lawyers are able to provide you with clear-cut advice on whether you should hire a lawyer or pre-pay your ticket. Our lawyers will identify the best way to help you avoid the accumulation of excessive demerit points and increased insurance premiums.
- 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. Due to our experience in Chesterfield County, we know a person charged with two or more prior offenses for no operator’s license may be sentenced to jail. However, there are potential defenses to this charge for persons who possess a valid license from another state or another country.
- Driving on a Suspended 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 license has a ten day mandatory 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.
- Underage Possession of Alcohol. In Virginia it’s illegal for a person under the age of twenty-one years old to purchase, possess, or consume any alcoholic beverage like liquor, wine, and beer. Our attorneys have years of experience defending minors and young adults charged with underage possession of alcohol.
- Possession of marijuana. We are experienced and skilled in defending against substance possession charges, and can also work with the courts to mitigate your penalties in the case of a conviction. We have successfully argued that compliance with alcohol or substance classes or performing community service should result in dismissal of charges.
