Going Above and Beyond in Drunk Driving Cases

Showing a .08 on a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test will result in a mandatory seven-day driver's license suspension. If convicted of the DUI charge, the license suspension will last a year or more, not to mention fines and possible jail time. A .15 or higher BAC, even on a first offense, means five days in jail. On a third offense, you could forfeit your car if convicted. Then there is the thousands of dollars in increased insurance expenses that a DUI conviction will cost you over the years.

At the law firm of Surovell Isaacs & Levy PLC in Fairfax, Virginia, our experienced criminal defense attorneys believe that consequences like these require representation that goes above and beyond. We will make the prosecution work to prove every single aspect of their case. The law states that you are innocent until proven guilty, and there is no exception in DUI cases. Our attorneys will fight to maintain your innocence.

Fight Back With Facts

DUI defense requires a great deal of skill. There are statutory hurdles that prosecutors are required to overcome in these cases, and our lawyers will make them work to prove every point. We'll start by asking some important questions:

  • Was the traffic stop valid?
  • Were your constitutional rights violated?
  • Was the waiver sheet explained appropriately?
  • Did the officer administer the field sobriety tests correctly?
  • Was the BAC test administered correctly at both the scene and the police station?

We're not looking for yes or no answers. We're looking for facts. All too often, the prosecution simply doesn't have them. If they can't back up their accusations with the necessary facts, that is grounds to get you positive results such as a dismissal.
