DUI / DWI

Some areas of the law, such as DUI defense, require a high level of attorney specialization in order to effectively defend clients in court. Having a working knowledge of the law of police stop and seizure and arrest, police training in DUI investigation, including proficiency in the NHTSA police training manuals, the myriad of Virginia statutory and case law, the Department of Forensic Science requirements and manual on the EC/IR II breath machine, along with countless other factors relating to the law and science of DUI defense, is imperative for the attorney to get results in court.

Oftentimes, general practitioners may not have the specific training required to successfully defend complex DUI cases. It is normally in your best interest to retain a law office with the training and experience to handle complex breath, blood draw and refusal DUI cases.
