Manassas DUI Attorneys
Drunk driving defense lawyers
An arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) represents serious criminal charges. Virginia drunk driving laws call for severe and instant consequences, including an immediate seven-day license suspension. Fines, jail sentences, expensive alcohol education classes, and even permanent license revocation can all be part of the punishment for a drunk driving conviction.
Do not make the mistake of thinking that a DUI in Manassas only affects Virginia residents. Even out-of-state drivers face serious consequences for drunk driving because Virginia has a contract with other states. Each Manassas DUI lawyer at The Daugherty Law Firm helps Virginia and out-of-state drivers protect their driving records and their driving privileges.
Experience defending serious DUI charges
While any DUI charge is serious under Virginia law, certain specific charges can result in severe consequences. The Daugherty Law Firm has the experience, legal knowledge and resources needed to defend our clients facing serious charges such as the following:
- Drunk driving accidents. If you have a drunk driving accident, you have come into conflict with Virginia DUI law. For a conviction to stand, the prosecution must prove that your blood alcohol content (BAC) was .08 percent or greater. The courts may try to use Breathalyzer®, blood tests, driving patterns, and field sobriety tests to convict you. But such evidence is not always accurate, and the Manassas drunk driving defense attorneys at The Daugherty Law Firm are well aware of that. We are knowledgeable in Virginia DUI laws, and know how to insert reasonable doubt into a case in order to make it less likely to end in conviction.
- Multiple DUI convictions. The punishments increase for those repeatedly convicted under DUI laws in Virginia. Increased fines, jail time, and damage to your reputation are not consequences you should take lightly. You need a Manassas DUI attorney with experience in defending clients against charges under drunk driving law in Virginia.
