If you’ve found your way to this website then either you or someone important to you may have been charged with driving under the influence (“DUI”). Let the experienced attorneys at Virginia Beach Law Group get you the best possible outcome.
Many of our clients tell us in their initial consultation that their case is hopeless and they assume they’ll be found guilty. Not necessarily so! You have a right under the U.S. Constitution to enter a plea of NOT GUILTY and thereby require the Commonwealth to prove each and every element of the charge. Every separate element of case must be properly and sufficiently proved, and each step leading up to trial must have been properly performed.
If there is a defect in the Commonwealth’s proof or procedure, or if doubt exists, then the charge must either be dismissed or amended. The facts of the case are what they are, but defenses are very technical – rules of court, rules of criminal procedure, rules of arrest, search and seizure, and rules of evidence. Hunting for those technical legal defects is what the experienced DUI attorneys at Virginia Beach Law Group do best.
However, defending against a charge of DUI is not a do-it-yourself project. Defense is in the details, and a layperson representing himself or herself will almost certainly not recognize an opportunity to have the case dismissed (or have the charge amended to something other than DUI) when it presents itself.
That’s where competent legal counsel comes in. Your Virginia Beach Law Group DUI attorney will work tirelessly to dig through each and every detail of your case. We will hold the Commonwealth to its task to prove each and every element of the alleged offense beyond a reasonable doubt.
