No matter where you are in the country, there is no such thing as a minor traffic offense. That is especially true in Virginia, which has some of the harshest traffic violation penalties in the U.S.
Drunk driving arrests and other traffic offenses can stay on your record for years, forcing you to pay more in insurance and making it harder to find work, housing and financial assistance. At Whitestone Young of Fairfax, we treat these allegations with the seriousness they deserve. Let our criminal defense attorneys put their years of experience to work for you.
We Handle All Types Of Violations
In addition to some of the punishments listed above, a conviction could lead to time in jail, a suspended driver's license and thousands of dollars in fines. As soon as possible after you are arrested or receive a citation, you should speak with an attorney to discuss your options.
We can handle all types of moving violations, including:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs for a first, second, third or subsequent arrest
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Driving on a suspended license
- Driving without insurance
- Failure to yield
- Running a red light, stop sign, failure to signal or other traffic violations
A Message For Out-Of-State Drivers
If you are from out of state, it may come as a shock to learn how severe penalties can be in Virginia. It is important to speak with a local lawyer who understands the laws, courts and judges. We will work hard to find an outcome that will allow you to keep driving in your home state. In most cases, you will not even need to appear in court.
