We Wrote the Book.
We were tasked with writing the book on Virginia DUI Law by Thomson Reuters Westlaw, the leading authority in legal publishing. Prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges often turn to this resource.
We Possess the Knowledge.

DWI Defense Throughout Hampton Roads & Newport News
If you’ve been charged with drinking and driving, it’s crucial to hire a lawyer who truly cares about you and your case and has the knowledge and skill and to give you the absolute best representation possible. We have defended DUI/DWI cases in over 100 cities and counties in Virginia. People often ask us how we can do this and whether it is better for them to have local counsel. We have never felt at a disadvantage anywhere. Often, we think it is actually an advantage because we are different. Prosecutors and Judges respect our knowledge and how we prepare our cases.
Do not let a drinking and driving conviction affect the rest of your life. If you, or someone you know, has been arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in the Commonwealth of Virginia, you need to find an experienced defense attorney who will help fight the charges.
Consequences of a DWI in Virginia
If you’re convicted of a DUI, you could face many collateral consequences. These include problems obtaining or retaining employment, limitations on travel, increases in insurance rates, and so forth. Our goal is to do everything possible to avoid a conviction. We understand how devastating a conviction can be. Because of our expertise, no matter what happens, we will guide you through your case and any ramifications that may occur because of a conviction. Our clients are very appreciative of our concern for their situations and our guidance to get them through this entire process.
