More About DUI And DWI Charges And Defenses
One of the most important things to keep in mind is that just because an arrest was made for these charges, it does not automatically mean that you will be found guilty. There are many factors that come into play on a DUI charge and many mitigating circumstances. Although the DUI and DWI laws in Virginia are both complex and severe, this can often work in your favor.
Our law firm has and continues to study these laws and any changes that occur so that we can provide you with the most accurate and vigorous defense. In many cases, it is the complexity of the law that assists us in reducing or eliminating the charges and penalties you may face.
Some of the areas we will focus on to assist you include:
- We test the justification of the initial traffic stop by determining whether or not the police officer had probable cause
- We will analyze the initial field sobriety tests that were or were not performed at your stop
- We can often challenge the PBT (preliminary breath test)
- We will put the blood alcohol testing equipment on trial
- If a blood test is administered, there are ways in which the testing procedures and results can be challenged
- We will find every opportunity to bolster your case
In Virginia, the penalties for DUI / DWI charges can be quite severe. At a minimum, a 12 month license suspension is usually assigned and can also be accompanied by large fines. However, there are many mitigating circumstances that we will accentuate in your case including your driving record, first-time offenses, the actual blood alcohol count, your level of cooperation with the officer, if there was no accident or egregious behavior and even the nature of the officer and prosecuting attorney come into play.
Don’t face a DUI or DWI charge alone. These are serious charges that come with serious penalties and with the attorneys at Gore & Kuperman on your side, your chances of coming through the process with reduced penalties or even dismissed charges rises dramatically.
