Charlottesville Virginia DUI Defense Lawyer

Most people use their cars as their primary source of transportation. When people constantly rush from one place to the next, it's easy to forget safe driving and staying within the limits of the law. While it may be frustrating to not have transportation if your license is suspended and it can be expensive to register a vehicle, the consequences for not doing so can be even worse.

At Caroline Ayres Law Office, we have more than two decades of experience representing clients in Charlottesville and throughout Central and Northern Virginia. We defend clients who are facing charges for traffic crimes, including:

  • Speeding
  • Driving on a Suspended License
  • Reckless Driving
  • Driving an Unregistered Vehicle
  • Drunk Driving / DUI

Minimizing the Impact of the Driving Offense

When you work with a lawyer, you expect him or her to minimize the consequences of the situation. We work with clients to have sentences and fines reduced and jail time minimized or avoided. If your license was suspended, we can help you receive a restricted license so you are able to drive to work or school.

We talk to prosecutors beforehand, so we have a good idea of what to expect when the case goes before the judge. We also attempt to get waivers so our clients do not need to appear in court.

Understanding the Importance of an Experienced Lawyer

Many people think that they can effectively fight their speeding or DUI charges without legal counsel. However, that is incorrect. Many defenses are technical and are centered on information that the average American has no reason to know. An experienced attorney understands radar calibrations, knows if officers performed field sobriety tests correctly, and will have an understanding of probable causes for arrest.

We work with clients to shoot holes in the prosecutor's defense and minimize the impact of a traffic arrest. Protect your legal rights and driving privileges by contacting our Charlottesville traffic violations attorney. We can be reached online or by calling toll free (434) 983-3418.
