Parker, Pollard, Wilton, and Peaden - Attorneys at Law

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

The law firm of Parker, Pollard, Wilton & Peaden P.C. is ready to represent you if you are facing DUI charges. We understand that Virginia takes drunk driving charges very seriously, so you need to have a lawyer who will be by your side to help you at every stage of the process. We provide you with the honest advice you need about your situation and potential options.

Consequences of DUI Conviction

A DUI conviction can affect your life for many years after the incident occurs and is resolved. For example, employers will be able to see your conviction on certain background checks, and your car insurance rates will continue to be high for several years.

Our criminal defense attorneys will begin by obtaining the police report and any evidence the state plans to use against you at trial. We will analyze whether the traffic stop was justified, whether any sobriety tests were administered properly and whether any of your rights were violated at any point in the process.

Additionally, if you have already had your license suspended, our firm can help you seek a restoration of your driving privileges.

Potential Penalties for DUI in Virginia
