Protecting Your Rights Against DUI Charges

The state of Virginia takes drunk driving charges seriously, levying stiff charges and penalties. A conviction almost always results in a license suspension, many times in addition to mandatory jail time. You need representation from a skilled attorney who will aggressively fight for you to see that your rights are protected.

At GravesWhetzel Law, PLLC, we are committed to defending you in the face of these overwhelming charges. With your rights and driving privileges on the line, you need a firm that has the veteran skill and experience to understand what needs to be done and how to contest the charges.

Strong Defense Against DUI Charges

It is important that you contact us about representation as soon as possible following a DUI stop. We will get involved quickly. Each situation is different, and we will carefully assess your stop and determine where the strengths of your case lie. Law enforcement must follow a specific protocol to make a legal charge against you.

There must be probable cause for a police officer to pull you over. We will determine if there was a reason for the stop.

We will gather all pertinent evidence, including video, audio and test samples, creating a complete file of your case from the beginning. We will assess all tests that were used, including the field sobriety test, the Breathalyzer test and any blood samples that were taken. Rarely does the prosecution have an airtight case, and we will find the holes.

We Help With Traffic Offenses As Well

We are also equipped to protect your interests when you face driving offenses, ranging from simple to serious. This can cover speeding tickets and reckless driving charges to grave charges such as eluding, leaving the scene of an accident and vehicular manslaughter. Serious charges can result in a felony, and you must take them seriously.
