Defending You Against the Consequences of a DUI
When you are accused of drunk driving, you will face both criminal and civil penalties if convicted. After a drunk driving arrest, your driver's license will be suspended immediately. This happens automatically after your arrest and is completely separate from the criminal aspect of your charge. Our DUI defense firm will represent you at an implied consent hearing, challenging a suspended license.
A successful DUI defense strategy often begins immediately following your arrest. It is of vital importance that you speak to us after you are charged with a DUI. We will begin to gather evidence and statements in order to start building a case against the criminal charges. Here are the five ways that you may be convicted of a DUI:
- Your blood alcohol content (BAC) is above .08.
- You were driving under the influence of alcohol.
- You operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of a narcotic or prescription drug.
- You were driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
- You were driving with a blood-drug concentration over the legal limit.
A conviction for a DUI can be both expensive and inconvenient for both civilians and military personnel. If you have been accused of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, contact a DUI defense lawyer at the Norfolk and Virginia Beach, Virginia, law firm of Montagna & Montagna, P.C. for a free initial consultation.
