DWI/DUI Charges in Virginia
If you have been arrested for drunk driving or driving under the influence, you already know how oppressive and scary the experience can be. In addition to the stigma of a conviction, you also face the real possibility of a suspended license, mandatory ignition interlock, an extensive alcohol program, and in some cases, jail time.
Know your rights. Do not wait until it is almost time to go to court. Call today, so we can explain what you are facing, and what to do now that you have been charged with a DWI/DUI.
For example, you may be wondering: Did I have to take the field sobriety test or the breath test? How did my blood alcohol level get so high? Do I enroll in an alcohol class (“ASAP”) before court? Do I inform my employer? Can I still drive? What if I don’t have a Virginia license? Even a typical DWI/DUI case can have many complex legal issues. The sooner you contact our office, the sooner we can go to work for you.
