Virginia DUI Lawyer Listing

We are often asked to suggest a Virginia DUI lawyer. If your traffic case is serious or you are from out of state, then you absolutely should consider retaining a Virginia attorney. Even minor speeding tickets can have serious consequences leading to high insurance rates and even loss of your job. A DUI or DWI offense can lead to loss of license, loss of job and thousands of dollars in fines and additional auto insurance premiums.

Here is an excellent example of what can happen with just a Virginia speeding ticket. This is an actual post from a speeding ticket forum and is typical.

"After getting 3 speeding tickets (75/70) in two years, I've been without any tickets for 13months. I have standard insurance. After being given a job, the offer has been withdrawn due to their car insurance company going back 3 years and determining it would be too costly to insurance me.

Is it possible to get a ticket dropped from the record a year or so after it was received and paid for? Next April the oldest ticket will fall off, but meanwhile I'm out of a job."

If you have too many Virginia traffic tickets, even minor ones, on your record it can cause problems. You need to contest every speeding ticket. The best way to fight your ticket or DUI is to retain a Virginia DUI lawyer. He knows the state laws and he knows the Virginia court system.

Virginia is currently issuing a number of reckless driving citations. 20 mph over the speed limit or over 80 mph will usually result in a reckless driving Virginia ticket. This is a mandatory court appearance and fines can be as much as $2500 plus a year in jail.

If you cannot appear, a Virginia DUI lawyer can represent you at your arraignment and negotiate with the judge on your behalf. By retaining a Virginia DUI attorney you can at least minimize the effect a Virginia DUI will have on your family and your job.

Don't Drink and Drive

There is only way to avoid a Virginia DUI conviction is to not drink and drive. This means, do not even have one beer before getting behind the wheel of an automobile. The DUI laws in Virginia and all other states are extremely strict. A conviction results in very harsh punishment that will stay on your record for ten years. Give your keys to someone else or take a taxi. If you are charged with DUI or DWI, contact a Virginia DUI lawyer immediately to find out how to mitigate the situation

Virginia DUI Laws

The punishment for a Virginia DUI varies substantially depending upon whether this is your first, second, or subsequent offense. The punishment also varies depending upon your blood alcohol level and if a child was in the vehicle. A DUI can be a misdemeanor or a felony. If it is a first offense, there is a mandatory 5 days in jail sentence for a blood alcohol level between 0.15 and o.21. Above that, if you are still alive, there is a mandatory 10 day jail sentence. For second and subsequent Virginia DUI convictions there are increased mandatory minimum penalties. A felony Virginia DUI carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 6 months in jail with a maximum of 5 years. Your license will be suspended for at least one year and you will have to pay to attend a rehabilitation program.

An ignition interlock device is now required for all DUI convictions. Previously, the requirement for an ignition interlock was imposed as a result of two or more DUI convictions or the first DUI conviction if the offender's blood-alcohol content (BAC) was 0.15 percent or above. While 0.08 percent BAC is legally drunk, a driver may be convicted of DUI while driving with a BAC of less than 0.08 percent.

If you add everything up, a DUI conviction could easily cost you between $10,000 and $20,000 or even more. A very expensive night out on the town. DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE

A Virginia DUI lawyer can research your case and try to win at trial. If your case can’t be won, he can negotiate for a lower fine or violation. In some Virginia counties, the prosecutor will not negotiate with anyone but an Virginia DUI lawyer. The prosecutor knows you don't have a chance without a DUI attorney so there is no need to negotiate.

Virginia DUI Penaties and Fines

FIRST VIRGINIA DUI

If for your first offense your BAC was less than .15, you will face a class 1 misdemeanor with penalties of:

Up to a $2,500 fine; Up to 12 months in jail; and 1 year revocation of your administrative driver's license.

If for your first Virginia DUI offense your BAC was between .15 and .20, you will face the same penalties with an additional mandatory 5 day jail sentence.

If for your first Virginia DUI offense your BAC was greater than .20, you will face the same penalties with an additional mandatory 10 day jail sentence.

If you are convicted of a first offense for Virginia DUI, and your driver's license is revoked, you may be eligible for a Restricted Operator's License. However, if you do receive a Restricted Operator's License, and your BAC was measured at .15 or above, you will be required to install an ignition interlock system in your car.

SECOND VIRGINIA DUI

If your second Virginia DUI was committed within 5 years of a prior offense, then your penalties will include:

a minimum $500 fine; confinement in jail for 20 days to 1 year; additional mandatory 10 day jail sentence (if your blood alcohol content [BAC] was between .15 and .20); additional mandatory 20 day jail sentence (if your BAC level was greater than .20); and 3 year driver's license revocation.

If your second Virginia DUI was committed within 5 to 10 years from a prior offense, then your penalties are slightly different. There may be more leniency for initial jail time. A Virginia DUI defense attorney may be able to help lessen the severity of some of the penalties in this case.

The penalties for a second Virginia DUI within 5 to 10 years include:

minimum $500 fine; confinement in jail for 10 days to 1 year; additional mandatory 10 day jail sentence (if your BAC was between .15 and .20); mandatory 20 day jail sentence (if your BAC was greater than .20); and 3 year driver's license revocation.

THIRD VIRGINIA DUI

If all 3 of your Virginia DUI offenses were committed within 5 years, then your penalties will include:

a class 6 Felony, which carries a punishment of imprisonment for 1 to 5 years; a mandatory minimum 6 month jail sentence; a mandatory minimum fine of $1,000; and an indefinite revocation of your driver's license.

If all 3 of your Virginia DUI/s were committed between a 5 and 10 year period, then your penalties will include:

a class 6 Felony, which carries a punishment of imprisonment for 1 to 5 years; a mandatory minimum 90 day jail sentence; a mandatory minimum fine of $1000; and an indefinite revocation of your driver's license.
