Loudoun County Criminal Defense
When you are charged with a crime, you have a lot to lose — your money, your freedom, your reputation, and your future. That’s why it’s crucial to obtain reliable criminal defense representation.

Let us use our knowledge and experience to fight for the best outcome possible in your case.
Driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI) are criminal charges and you have the right to an attorney for your defense. Breathalyzers which measure alcohol content are not foolproof, and DUI lawyers can often challenge the results. However, if you are convicted of a DUI, the penalties include jail time, fines, and license revocation.
If you are arrested for drunk driving, you have the right to consult with a Virginia DUI defense attorney prior to taking a chemical test. When asked by law enforcement officers if you want to speak with a lawyer, say yes. It cannot be held against you. Call us today for guidance to protect your rights.
Did you recently receive a traffic citation? In Virginia, traffic violations remain on your driving record and the point accumulations will affect your insurance rates. They can even lead to a license revocation. The greater the miles per hour exceeding the speed limit, the more serious the speeding violation. For some charges, however, you can have your record sealed or destroyed through a process called an expungement. Call a Virginia traffic violation attorney today if you would like to know if this is an option for you.
