Virginia DUI and DWI Virginia DUI and DWI

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles statistics show there were over 27,000 DUI / DWI convictions in Virginia in 2013That doesn't have to be you. Just because you've been charged with drunk driving doesn't mean the fight is over. Now more than ever, you need an experienced, veteran Virginia DUI / DWI Defense Lawyer with a proven track record of success to handle your Virginia DUI / DWI case and give you the best chance to get the best result.  

The Wilson Law Firm has helped hard working people, just like you, all across Virginia who were facing charges of:           

You need a Virginia DUI / DWI Defense Lawyer who has the specialized education, training and experience necessary to know how to handle your drunk driving defense.

Knowing the law isn’t enough!  When you choose a lawyer to trust with the defense of your Virginia DUI / DWI charge, make sure it's an experienced Virginia DUI / DWI lawyer who has specialized education, training and experience in the field of DUI / DWI defense, with a proven track record of success handling Virginia DUI / DWI cases - not just someone who claims to handle DUI / DWI cases on a web site.

T. Kevin Wilson works hard to stay on the cutting edge of Virginia DUI / DWI defense and he has extensive, specialized education and training that training that most other attorneys lack.  Not only is he well versed in Virginia's DUI / DWI statutes and case law, but as a former Police Academy Legal Instructor he has a comprehensive understanding of the tools and procedures the police will try to use against you in your case.  In addition, and perhaps most importantly, he has specialized education and training on the scientific and operational principles of breath and blood alcohol testing, as well as various medical issues that arise in DUI / DWI cases.  He is one of the first defense attorneys in Virginia to complete training on the new ECIR II machine currently being used by police and he is recognized nationally as an authority on Virginia DUI / DWI Defense.

Mr. Wilson is one of the only lawyers in Virginia who has taken the extraordinary step of actually purchasing his own breath alcohol testing machines.  This has enabled him to become even more familiar with how they work, and how they can fail - knowledge few other lawyers have, and knowledge which has allowed him to provide even better representation to his clients.  

In most Virginia DUI / DWI cases, two very important pieces of evidence are: 

  • How you performed on your field sobriety tests.
  • The scientific evidence (the result of the breath or blood alcohol analysis)

Therefore, you need a lawyer who is trained on, and intimately familiar with, both of these fields.

Police officers make mistakes, just like the rest of us, and sometimes these mistakes are important factors in the defense of your Virginia DUI / DWI.  Similarly, the breath alcohol testing machines are just machines run by computer programs, and like all other machines, they too malfunction.  Knowledge of the scientific and operational principles relied upon by the breath alcohol testing machines used in Virginia is critical to providing the best possible defense.  In addition, these machines require regular maintenance and care, and sometimes that maintenance and care is not provided.  In some situations, the tests are improperly administered, which calls into question the validity of the result of the test.  

Act quickly!  If you've been charged with drunk driving, you need to get an experienced Virginia DUI / DWI lawyer working for you as soon as possible!   The clock is ticking and there are things that must be done quickly!  

Don't give up!  It is sometimes tempting to just give up and plead guilty so you can put the case behind you.  Resist that temptation.  It may seem like a good idea and you may think you are relieving your anxiety, but it is a decision you will more than likely regret very quickly.  If you plead guilty you are giving up any and all hope of a more favorable outcome and you are guaranteeing you will be found guilty - bringing potentially devastating consequences, from the Court, from DMV, from insurance...the list goes on and on.  

Don't be a statistic.  Don’t make one of these alarmingly common and devastating mistakes: 

  • trying to handle the case without a lawyer
  • throwing money down the drain by hiring a lawyer who lacks the specialized education, training and experience required to do the best possible job

THE LAWYER YOU CHOOSE CAN BE THE DIFFERENCE IN THE OUTCOME OF YOUR CASE.

 

Virginia Reckless Driving and Serious Traffic Offenses Virginia Reckless Driving and Serious Traffic Offenses

Although his firm, The Wilson Law Firm, is based in Manassas, DUI / DWI, Criminal and Traffic Defense Lawyer, T. Kevin Wilson, handles cases all across Virginia.  These days most people seem to know DUI / DWI is a criminal offense with serious consequences.  However, many people do not seem to realize Virginia has several other motor vehicle offenses which are also CRIMINAL and, as such, can also have very serious consequences, including steep fines, loss of license and even time in jail.

The most common of these other offenses is RECKLESS DRIVING.  There are several ways to commit the offense known as Reckless Driving in Virginia, but the two most common ways are (1) grossly exceeding the speed limit and (2) causing a crash.  In some cases, the fine imposed for Reckless Driving is relatively small so people seem to think the offense is just a minor traffic infraction.  WRONG.  Reckless Driving is a CRIME in Virginia and if you are found guilty it means you will have a permanent criminal record!  For some people, this is not a big deal, but for others it is a major concern.  Having a criminal record can negatively impact a person's ability to get into school, to find employment, to be promoted, etc., as well as the obvious consequences wtih the DMV and the insurance company.

In addition to Reckless Driving, a few of the other common motor vehicle offenses which are CRIMINAL in Virginia are:  

          *  Racing

          *  Driving Without a License

          *  Driving With a Suspended License

          *  Driving After Being Declared an Habitual Offender 

          *  Driving Outside the Terms of a Restricted License 

          *  Leaving the Scene of an Accident (aka Hit and Run) 

          *  Eluding Law Enforcement.  

All of these offenses can result in the imposition of a fine, loss of license and even time in jail.

When charged with one of these offenses, whether it is Reckless Driving or one of ther other CRIMINAL motor vehicle offenses, it is important to realize and remember that you are not dealing with a simple traffic infraction.  These are CRIMINAL offenses in Virginia and you need an experienced Virginia Criminal and Traffic Defense Attorney on your side, zealously pursuing the best possible outcome for you.  If you have been accused of Reckless Driving or some other CRIMINAL motor vehicle offense in Virginia, put our expertise to work for you by calling 703-361-6100 or 540-347-4944.

Virginia Criminal Defense Virginia Criminal Defense

According to statistics compiled by the Virginia State Police, there were over 18,000 violent crimes reported in Virginia in 2011. That same year, theft of money and property accounted for a loss of over $200 million. While Virginia's overall crime rate ranks low among the 50 states, these totals can appear staggering and reinforce the reality that the nation's courts often don't have the time, resources or inclination to treat each criminal case the individual attention it deserves. If you're charged with a crime in Virginia, you are in trouble and you need help.

Being suddenly thrown into in the criminal court system can leave the accused feeling stripped of his/her dignity, especially in the cases of a first-time offender. If you or a family member has been charged with a crime in Virginia, you need a dedicated and professional criminal defense attorney with a proven history of fighting for the rights of the accused.

Don't let a single mistake or a moment of bad judgment effect the rest of your life. If the outcome of your case is important, call The Wilson Law Firm and put their experienced criminal defense lawyers to work for you immediately.
