Fairfax Federal DWI Defense Lawyers

Any DWI arrest is a serious matter that can have a life-changing impact on any person who is convicted. What many people do not understand, however, is the different set of circumstances that come into play when the DWI offense takes place on federally owned land. In these cases, the offense can become a federal crime that must be resolved in federal court.

The processes used in federal court are completely different from those in the Virginia courts. The equipment that is used to measure blood alcohol concentration (BAC), the rules of court, the prosecutors, the ability to negotiate a plea and the approach to building a defense are all different. In addition, the penalties for a conviction on a federal DWI can be completely different.

It is critical that you have a tenured attorney who is not only admitted to handle cases in federal court, but also has the skill to help you reach a positive outcome. At the law firm of Surovell Isaacs & Levy PLC, our Fairfax federal DWI defense attorneys have successfully represented countless clients who were charged with drunk driving on federally operated land.
