Arlington DUI Attorney & Arlington DWI Lawyer | Tuomey Law


Tuomey law Home Image

When you have been arrested for driving under the influence, understand that in Virginia, DUI/DWI is a serious criminal offense that leaves those convicted facing harsh penalties. At the Tuomey Law Firm, PLLC, my Arlington DUI attorney is experienced and capable in this area of the law. I know that even though the breath test may have indicated a blood alcohol level of .08, it does not necessarily indicate your guilt. You are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. I am a seasoned Arlington DWI lawyer, and I will work to secure the best possible outcome on your behalf, whether that means having the charge against you dismissed or reduced.

 

As an Arlington DWI lawyer, I know that the laws regarding drinking and driving in Virginia are some of the toughest in the nation. If convicted on a first offense and found to have a BAC of .08 or higher, your driver's license may be suspended for 12 months; you may also be required to attend alcohol education classes. If found to have a BAC of .15 or higher with a first offense, you will face mandatory jail time as well. A second offense will result in penalties that are even more severe, including a three year license suspension and 20 days in jail if the second offense occurs within five years of the first. It is imperative that you obtain the services of a competent Arlington DUI attorney.

 

Regardless of whether you are innocent or guilty of the charge against you, a dedicated Arlington DWI lawyer will thoroughly investigate the case and analyze the evidence in order to determine the best defense strategy for each client's unique situation. There are many defenses that may be used to obtain positive results for the client. As an Arlington DUI lawyer, I will challenge the evidence, question whether police had reasonable suspicion to pull you over, and whether breath or blood tests were administered correctly and whether the results are accurate, or whether the arresting officer may have relied on field sobriety tests only to determine that you were driving while intoxicated.

 

The first priority of every compassionate Arlington DUI attorney is to have the charge against his or her client dismissed. When this is not possible, it is to the client's advantage for his or her attorney to negotiate for reduced charges, or to seek alternative penalties so that a criminal record can be avoided, and the sentence deferred. It is important that anyone arrested for driving under the influence not plead guilty; if you do, you will be subject to the harshest penalties.

 

If you or someone you love has been charged with DUI or DWI, do not hesitate to contact the Arlington DWI attorney at Tuomey Law Firm, PLLC immediately. My years of experience, knowledge of the laws regarding DUI, and dedicated approach allow me to secure positive results for my clients.

 

As an Arlington DUI attorney, I understand that a conviction for driving while intoxicated not only results in serious criminal penalties, it can affect many aspects of your life. Individuals who are convicted will have a criminal record which can negatively affect your current career, or any future employment opportunities. Relationships may be affected; your reputation may be ruined as well as your career, particularly if you hold a professional license.

 

In addition, each time an individual is arrested for driving while intoxicated in Virginia, the criminal penalties become more harsh if convicted. Having the legal guidance and support of a talented Arlington DUI lawyer is essential. Having a compassionate attorney on your side who is ready to answer all of your questions and provide you with sound advice offers a measure of comfort and reassurance. Many people believe that if they are arrested for DUI there is no use in fighting the charges because they will be convicted. This is not the case! As with any other criminal offense, your guilt must be proven by the prosecution, which isn't always easy or cut and dried.

 

Ultimately, it is never a good idea to face accusations of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs on your own. While pleading guilty or no contest may result in reduced penalties, your Arlington DUI attorney can help you understand your options, so that you fully understand the potential outcome and can make the best choice for your individual situation.

 

There are many different ways that an individual comes into contact with the police for an Arlington DWI or DUI charge. As an Arlington DWI attorney, I know that there are ways to challenge the police activity depending on how you came into contact with the police. The initial stop by the police can be challenged as lacking in reasonable, articulable suspicion. Your arrest by the police can be challenged as lacking in probable cause. Your breath test or blood test can be challenged based on a number of factors, depending on how it was administered and who administered it to you. Did you also know that in Virginia, it is possible to be convicted of DWI or DUI even if you are not driving, but are merely operating a vehicle? DWI and DUI laws are complex in Virginia, and you need a skilled Arlington DWI attorney who knows all the complexities and can fight for you.
