Alexandria and Fairfax Area DUI Defense Attorneys

Many of our “driving under the influence” (DUI) clients come to us facing their first DUI charge. If you are in this situation, we encourage you to seek our legal guidance. It’s normal to feel scared, especially since this may be your first time being arrested. The legal process can seem both threatening and mysterious.

Our staff of criminal defense lawyers includes an experienced former public defender who has handled hundreds of Northern Virginia DUI cases. We bring years of experience to bear in representing you, and we work hard to protect your rights throughout the legal process.

That means gathering the evidence being used against you and challenging it vigorously. We review available video of the traffic stop and forensic evidence of blood alcohol levels.

We use this investigation in order to craft motions to suppress evidence that is faulty or has been improperly gathered. Our firm thoroughly analyzes a broad number of critical Constitutional issues, including:

  • Why you were stopped by the police
  • Whether the police had probable cause for the arrest
  • How any sobriety tests were administered
  • Whether the testing machine itself was properly maintained
  • Whether authorized personnel were in charge of any sobriety testing

Every member of our legal team is committed to providing a high level of service. After all, we’re not just any attorney — we’re your attorney.


When you’re ready to call, we’re ready to help. Call us at 703-836-9030, or contact us here. All communications between our firm and potential clients remain entirely confidential.
