DUI Defense Lawyers in Leesburg
Keeping up with Changes in Virginia's DUI Laws
Virginia changes its drunk driving laws almost every year. If you face DUI charges, you need a criminal defense lawyer who is in court every day, staying updated on changes to statutes and case law, as well as the ever-evolving technology that is used to measure the alcohol content of your blood or breath. Otherwise, you will be at an immediate disadvantage during your misdemeanor or felony case.
At Alex Levay Attorneys, PLLC, founding attorney Alex Levay and the rest of our skilled criminal defense attorneys have the experience you are seeking. Since our firm’s foundation in 1996, we have tried and obtained acquittals in numerous jurisdictions throughout Virginia in almost every kind of alcohol-related case, including DUI, vehicular assault, and DUI manslaughter.
What Are the Penalties for DUI in Virginia?
The consequences of pleading guilty to driving under the influence – especially if you have prior DUI convictions – can include:
- Loss of your driver's license
- Job loss
- Jail time
- Points on your license
- Increased insurance premiums
Our Leesburg DUI defense attorneys often represent people who cannot afford to plead guilty to DUI charges. Unlike some lawyers who spend all their time discussing plea agreements, we aggressively search for viable defenses to argue at trial.
What Kind of Lawyer Handles DUI? Contact Alex Levay Attorneys, PLLC
Unless your lawyer knows how to challenge the presumptions and inferences of blood and breath alcohol testing as well as field sobriety tests, your chances of success in a DUI case are not good. As lawyers who are in court every day, we also know all of the recent developments in Virginia DUI law.
Our team is familiar with the latest technology the state uses to measure your blood alcohol content. We have access to expert witnesses who can challenge that evidence in court.
We can also pursue constitutional challenges to your case. Did the police have a valid reason to pull you over? Even if you were stopped as a result of a traffic violation, there may still be a constitutional defense that we can pursue to challenge the admissibility of the BAC and field sobriety tests. We also handle appeals of past DUI convictions.
To arrange a free consultation to discuss your DUI case, call (703) 782-9777. Our office is across from the Loudoun County courthouse in Leesburg.
