Impact of DUI
In the state of Virginia, a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher constitutes Driving under the influence or DUI. DUI applies to operation of motor vehicles, boats, and other watercraft.
If you are charged with a DUI, there are many issues that an experienced attorney will review in evaluating your case. A DUI conviction can result in jail time, a fine of up to $2,500, a loss of license, probation, and alcohol/substance abuse counseling. The collateral impact of a conviction can also be substantial, impacting employment, insurances rates, among other things.
Those charged with DUI should seek representation of an experienced attorney, who may be able to get charges reduced for first time offenders. David Martin has a proven record of success in representing clients charged with DUI.
