DUI and DWI
It can happen to anyone, and when it happens to you, you are scared. You have questions about the future, and the last thing you want is a drunk driving conviction on your record. Whether you live locally or you were traveling on Interstate 66, Route 17, Interstate 81 or Route 29, an experienced attorney can help you protect your rights. At the Warrenton law firm of Mark B. Williams & Associates, PLC, we have provided DUI and drunk driving defenses since 1990.
Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys Fighting For Your Rights
In recent years, the state of Virginia has enhanced the penalties for drunk driving. Therefore it is more important than ever to seek the assistance of an experienced attorney to protect your rights if you have been charged with a DUI or DWI. It is even more important if this is not your first DUI/DWI arrest.
Unlike other states, Virginia does not offer programs that will give you a second chance for your DWI. However, the right criminal defense representation can help. Contact the law office of Mark B. Williams & Associates, PLC, to explore all of your legal options.
Fighting DWI Charges
We start every driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI) or other drinking and driving case by closely examining the procedure. Driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or more is considered driving under the influence in Virginia. In some cases, there are procedural errors that can lead to charges being reduced or dismissed. Our attorneys will ask the following questions:
- Was the stop proper?
- Was testing done properly?
- Did law enforcement follow protocol and procedure?
- Did the police have probable cause to make the stop and arrest?
If there were no procedural errors, we will start exploring other defense options. We will work to reduce the charges you face and minimize the potential consequences. Negotiating with the prosecution, we will work to reach a settlement that will protect your long-term interests.
