DUI Attorney James City County
A DUI attorney is a lawyer who specializes in representing clients who have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. DUI attorneys are often experienced in handling cases involving drunk driving, and they may have a particular focus on issues related to sobriety tests, breathalyzer tests, and other technical aspects of DUI cases. In addition to representing clients in court, DUI attorneys may also provide legal advice and representation in administrative proceedings related to DUI charges, such as hearings before the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Are DUI’s a Common Violation?
Every year there are literally thousands of people arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol in the Greater Williamsburg area between Hampton and James City County. Quite often these individuals are otherwise fine, upstanding members of the community, who have never been in trouble in their life.
Furthermore, the Commonwealth of Virginia has one of the toughest DUI laws in the United States. Mandatory jail sentences, license suspensions, and ignition interlock systems are just some of the possible consequences of a DUI conviction. Therefore, it is imperative that one arrested for DUI retain an experienced, aggressive attorney, one who understands the ins and outs of the potential legal and technical defenses that may be available.
