We Wrote the Book

When it comes to DUI Law in Virginia, we wrote the book. Literally. Recognized as specialists in our field and backed by the expertise we’ve gained from handling thousands of previous cases, Thomson Reuters Westlaw, the authority in legal publishing, asked us to write the book on Virginia DUI Law as part of their Virginia Practice Series. Filled with crucial information about field sobriety tests and breath test operations, along with our own legal insights as DUI specialists and a “Lawyer-Scientist,” this book has become a resource for prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges alike. To date, it is one of our greatest accomplishments, and we look forward to the opportunity to continue enhancing others' knowledge of DUI law and procedures in the future.

We Possess the Knowledge

While many DUI defense lawyers know how to take a case to court and fight for reduced sentencing and penalties, none can provide the same level of specialized knowledge that we have to offer at Tillotson & Martin. Backed by 40+ years of combined experience, we are Virginia’s most qualified DUI attorneys in the state, and our practice is limited exclusively to DUIs because we know we can deliver results unlike anyone else in the business. What’s more, we are committed to sharing our knowledge with as many people as possible. To that end, we frequently conduct lectures and seminars for other professionals in the field, and, to date, we are the only law firm that has hosted a seminar on the EC/IR 2; we are both certified breath test operators; we are dedicated to staying up to date on our skills and knowledge, and we complete annual trainings in breath and blood testing, as well as field sobriety testing courses; and we continue to be the only attorneys in Virginia who bring the Field Sobriety manual and the Breath Test manual into evidence in the cases that we represent.
