DUI Defense Attorneys Helping You Keep Your License
A conviction for driving under the influence can wreak havoc in your life.

The police don’t always get it right when they stop you on suspicion of drunk driving. We’ll make sure that your rights are respected, and we’ll fight for the best result to keep you from losing your license, your job and the myriad other negative consequences of a Virginia DUI. Keep your license and keep your job. Fight your DUI with our help.
The issues decided in a Virginia divorce immediately alter your domestic relations and continue to affect you and your family in numerous ways for years into the future.

We’ll work with you and your partner’s attorney to create practical marital settlement agreements that meet your needs, or we’ll forcefully litigate any contested matter that can’t be resolved outside of the courtroom. Call our office for help with divorce, custody, paternity, prenuptial agreements and other important aspects of Virginia domestic relations law.
