Protecting Your Ability To Drive After DUI Charges
A momentary lapse in judgment is all it takes for someone to get behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Even if no harm was done while you were behind the wheel, your DUI charges can come with considerable and lasting consequences. Instead of hoping for a mild warning for a first offense, act now to keep your record clear with the help of a skilled Virginia criminal defense attorney.
At my Warrenton law firm, Joseph R. Pricone, PLLC, I am committed to using my extensive trial experience to help my clients pursue the outcome they deserve in their cases. I have been fighting to protect my clients’ rights since 2015, so I know what is at stake in DUI cases and how to provide a strong defense.
Why You Need An Attorney
Even a 0.08 blood alcohol content (BAC) level is enough to burden you with a suspended license, thousands of dollars in fines, and a possible jail sentence. Multiple convictions come with even harsher sentencing. Any DUI conviction will also require you to install an ignition interlock device (IID) on any vehicle you drive.
When you come to me for help, I will offer reliable strategies to pursue a viable defense in your case, such as:
- Lack of probable cause to conduct the traffic stop or arrest
- Challenging the field tests police conducted to determine intoxication
- Excluding breath and blood test results from evidence on technical
- Questioning the breath and blood test results to confirm their validity
- Arguing that the alcohol or other substances in your blood did not cause you to be intoxicated at the time of driving
While beating or dismissing your charges is often the ideal outcome in a DUI case, I am also prepared to negotiate to reduce your charges and the resulting sentencing or even to maximize a plea deal if that is the best course of action for you.
