Traffic Violations

A traffic violation can have more serious consequences than you may imagine. If convicted of a traffic crime, you may face steep fines and the loss of your driver's license. Your insurance premiums will likely increase significantly. Depending on the charge, you may even have to spend time in jail.

For instance, in Virginia, reckless driving is a class one misdemeanor. A person who was arrested for driving over 80 miles per hour or 20 miles per hour over the speed limit faces up to $2500 in fines and up to 12 months in jail.

TrafficI provide experienced and aggressive defense representation for a wide range of traffic offenses, including:

  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Driving without insurance

DUI Defense

Police are aggressive in pursuing drunk driving arrests, and prosecutors push hard for the most severe punishments allowed by law. I work hard to spare my clients from the consequences of a DUI conviction. While handling drunk driving defense cases, I leave no stone unturned searching for evidence that supports my client's case.

Depending on the nature of the case, I may seek to have the charges dismissed by challenging the breath test, field sobriety test, the stop and other elements of police procedure. My goal in every case is to help my clients keep their driving privileges while avoiding the consequences of a DUI conviction.
