When you are arrested for drunk driving, you probably start to think of how a conviction will affect your life. Anyone who is charged with drunk driving has the right to present a defense against the charges. As we discussed last week, even in pro se drunk driving cases, you have possible defense strategies that you can consider.
We know that you don't want to have to think about what life will be like after a drunk driving conviction. The effects of a drunk driving charge are often considerable. Your reputation might suffer even if you haven't been convicted yet. The effect on your driver's license might make life difficult.
In Virginia, drunk driving convictions have harsh penalties. It is easy to understand why you should begin working on your defense as early as possible. That gives you as much time as possible to sort through the evidence against you.
We can help you go through the case against you. We can look for procedural errors and other factors that might help your defense. Once we have gone over everything, we can help you understand the possible defense options you have. We know that you likely want to be an active participant in your drunk driving defense.
We can even help you learn about your options under the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program. We don't want you to think that you have to stand alone as you fight against the drunk driving charge and the driver's license effects. We can stand by your side and protect your rights at every point in your drunk driving defense.
