We Provide Customized DUI Defense Strategies
If you have been charged with a DUI, you need a strategic, fact-based defense. At Luis A. Perez P.C. Law Office, we discuss your case with you to get a thorough understanding of the circumstances surrounding your arrest. We then develop a customized strategy, explaining how the process works and the potential outcomes of your case.
Convictions Are Not Automatic Following A Drunk Driving Arrest
The fact that your driver’s license is immediately suspended when you are arrested for a DUI does not mean that you are automatically guilty. A number of things involving DUI arrests can be questioned in court. Effective DUI defenses involve challenges to certain aspects of the arrest, including:
- Initial stop
- Breathalyzer tests
- Field sobriety tests
- Blood tests
In some drunk driving cases, we identify alcohol abuse as a root problem that led to a DUI arrest. Communicating this information to a judge places a spotlight on the addiction, often leading to alternative sentences in the form of treatment.
Moving Violations Can Have Serious Repercussions
Traffic law violations in Virginia are not something to downplay or ignore. Serious consequences exist for so-called “minor crimes” that include:
- Reckless driving — including driving 20 miles over the speed limit or 80 mph anywhere
- Driving with a suspended license
Hit-and-run, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license are all misdemeanors in Virginia that can result in large fines and jail time. Depending on the violation, a guilty verdict can add demerit points to your DMV record, cause your insurances rate to go up, or result in the suspension, revocation or disqualification of your driver’s license.
