The term DUI generally refers to driving under the influence and the term DWI generally refers to driving while intoxicated but in Virginia there is really no distinction between the two. Some states differentiate these terms, where one is a less serious offense than the other. In Virginia, both terms can be used interchangeably when referring to someone driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other substances that might impair their abilities.

Someone who is accused of driving drunk has rights as does someone who is convicted of this. To help protect your rights after being pulled over for driving while under the influence, contact an experienced DUI lawyer Virginia is fortunate to have in its midst.

DUI/DWI laws in Virginia prohibit driving with a blood alcohol content of:

– 0.08% or 0.08 grams of alcohol per 100 mL of blood
– 0.02% or 0.02 grams of alcohol per 100 mL of blood if you are under 21 years old

DUI/DWI laws in Virginia prohibit driving with the following amounts of the following drugs in your body:

– 0.02 milligrams of cocaine per liter of blood
– 0.10 milligrams of methamphetamine per liter of blood
– 0.01 milligrams of phencyclidine per liter of blood
– 0.10 milligrams of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine per liter of blood

Even though the above guidelines are standard, a person can still be arrested for a DUI when they blow less than a 0.08 on a preliminary breath test. If an officer thinks that there was enough other evidence to suggest that you are impaired by alcohol and/or drugs, they are allowed to arrest you regardless of a preliminary breath test. As well, an officer may claim that a field sobriety test is evidence of an accused person’s intoxication when in fact, this is the officer’s subjective opinion.

Even if your breath or blood level test results indicate that the alcohol level in your blood was above 0.08, a lawyer who understands science, and the testing methods and devices used to determine whether someone is driving while under the influence, can use this information to discredit inaccurate test results and assumptions.

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.
