- DUI Defense: Our lawyers are ready to develop the most effective legal defense possible. Whether it is your first DUI or you have previous DUI convictions, we know how 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 attorneys have successfully defended numerous clients charged with hit and run. The law in Virginia requires a person involved in an accident stop at or near the accident and provide the other people involved in the accident with specific information. This information includes 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 may have their driver’s license suspended for up to six months without any ability to obtain a restricted license.
- Speeding Tickets: Our attorneys are able to provide you with clear-cut advice on whether you should hire an attorney or pre-pay your ticket. Our attorneys 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 traffic lawyers have represented numerous clients charged with the crime of no operator’s license.
- Driving on Suspended License Charges: 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 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.
