Using My Experience To Help You
The penalties associated with DUI charges can be life-altering, and having an experienced attorney handling your case can mean the difference between a prison sentence and a fine. When you work with me, Stephen P. Pfeiffer, you are working with an attorney who has dedicated his career to DUI cases.
My experience and dedication have earned recognition throughout the legal community. I was selected for inclusion to the Rising Stars Virginia Super Lawyers list, as well as a “Top 10 under 40” for DUI Defense by NACDA. These recognitions show I will fight for you as my client.
I can help you understand the charges against you. I will examine all of the evidence in your case to strategize a defense that looks to minimize any consequences you face.
Fighting To Protect Your Future
Like with many states, the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit in Virginia for those 21 and older is .08%. This limit is even lower for those under 21 or who are commercial drivers.
While an ignition interlock device is now required if convicted of a DUI-related offense, other penalties still vary depending on your BAC level and history of convictions. Common penalties include:
- License suspension
- Jail time
- Fees and fines
- Community service
You could face enhanced penalties as well if a child was in the vehicle at the time of your arrest, there was property damage, or you refused to submit a breath or blood test.
If you did submit to a Breathalyzer test, I can challenge the accuracy of the findings and the machine used for the test.
