If you or a loved one has been charged or arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol, serious consequences follow a conviction. Those convicted of DUI can face harsh fines, jail time, community service and loss of driving privileges. An experienced DUI defense attorney from our offices in Newport News and Norfolk, VA will fight to minimize your exposure to these consequences.
At Weisberg & Weisberg, PLLC, our attorneys have over 50 years of collective experience defending clients charged with a wide range of criminal offenses. We routinely defend individuals charged with DUI. Our understanding of the law and the consequences you may face allows us to work quickly to protect your interest in what can often be a very aggressive criminal justice system.
Challenging A Breath Test
In many situations, the best DUI defense is centered on questioning the effectiveness of the law enforcement officer's administration of a breath test. We will challenge several factors, including:
- Was the officer trained properly?
- Was the machine properly calibrated?
- Was the machine properly stored and cleaned between uses?
- Was the test properly administered?
- Were the test results accurately recorded?
These, and many other, questions will be investigated by our dedicated staff of professionals. We will hold law enforcement responsible for the validity of their test results and challenge them on whether those results were properly attained.
Restricted Driving Privileges
If your driving privileges have been revoked or suspended, you or your loved one might be eligible to receive restricted driving privileges in some circumstances. We can represent you before the court and present a compelling argument that outlines your needs. If aspects of your life depend on your ability to drive — such as work, school, medical appointments or child care — we can help you navigate the legal system to gain a restricted driver's license.
