State DWI and DUI Laws

Every state has its own unique set of laws around DWI (driving while intoxicated) and DUI (driving under the influence) but it is illegal to drive with a BAC (blood alcohol content) above a certain level in all states. Some states have slightly higher or lower BAC limits compared to others but in all states, it is a crime to if you are charged with a DWI or a DUI.

Some states use the terms DWI and DUI interchangeably whereas they are different levels of offense in some states, and some states only use one or the other of the terms.

Virginia officially only uses the term DWI but many Alexandria, VA lawyers use both, DWI and DUI interchangeably.

Criminal DWI Charges Compared to DWI Civil Injury Claims

Regardless of whether or not a person who is driving while intoxicated is in an accident, if they are caught while doing this in Virginia with a BAC of .08% or more, it is typically considered a crime. Only an officer of the state such as a police officer or sheriff’s deputy can charge and arrest a person for a crime. It is then up to the courts to decide whether or not to proceed with a criminal trial, to dismiss the charges,  or to strike a plea bargain or make other arrangements with the accused.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
