Have you or a loved one been charged of a DUI in Fairfax?

If you are in the immediate wake of a DUI charge, it is absolutely imperative that you act as quickly as possible. As soon as the charge is made, a series of events will be triggered that can only be counteracted if a defense is built quickly, skillfully and as aggressively as possible. In the aftermath of the charge, you will be faced with not one, but two prosecutions. Not only will you have to handle the criminal case, where you will be faced with such outcomes as imprisonment, fines, and mandatory attendance of alcohol education classes, you will be in danger of an immediate seven day license suspension.

If actually convicted, a first offense will earn you a misdemeanor worth up to $2,500 in fines, a year in prison, a year without driving privileges and mandatory enrollment in a drunk driving program. Any following offenses will only heighten the punishment. Not to mention, certain factors in your case, such as a BAC reading of above 0.15, can earn you even harsher penalties, regardless of whether it was your first offense or not.

What benefits will a DUI lawyer offer?
