DUI, also referred to as DWI (driving while intoxicated), is considered to be a serious offense in Virginia that often results in considerable penalties. If you violate traffic laws or drive unsteadily, a police officer may pull you over and ask you to take a field sobriety test. They may ask to test your breath for its blood alcohol content and ask you to submit a blood sample. If you are convicted or plead guilty, your first offense will cost you a minimum $250 fine and a one-year suspension of your driver’s license.

Fight Traffic Offenses
When you get a traffic ticket for a moving violation, it can be tempting to simply pay the fine by mail and be done with it. However, some offenses require a court hearing and even if not, you may be able to save money by having us represent you in court instead of mailing in your fine.
When you pay the fine by mail, you are pleading guilty to the offense with which you were charged. That will likely result in points being recorded on your driving record, which will then be reported to your motor vehicle insurance company resulting in a significant increase in your premiums for the following three to five years.
Another pitfall of points is that when you accumulate a certain level of points, you risk suspension of your driving privileges. While suspended, you will be assessed surcharges and upon completion of the suspension you will be charged a license restoration fee.
Let Us Help You in Court
While we may take your case to trial, our Burke lawyers most often get the best results by negotiating a plea agreement with the prosecution. A plea agreement means that in exchange for your guilty plea to a lesser offense, the prosecution agrees to lower fines, reduce or waive points and dismiss other charges against you if you received more than one ticket.
