Drunk Driving

Drunk driving is a very serious offense, and a conviction can result in severe penalties, including the loss of your driving privileges, substantial fines and possible jail time. It is important that you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer representing you from the start. Fairfax DUI and DWI defense attorney Melinda VanLowe represents clients in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., who are facing charges for a drunk driving offense.

Ms. VanLowe conducts a thorough investigation of your case to determine if your rights were violated at any point during the traffic stop.  Depending on the circumstances of your case, it may be possible to challenge the validity of the initial traffic stop, the accuracy of the tests that measure blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and other aspects of the prosecution's case.  Ms. VanLowe works to suppress illegally obtained evidence and will be there with you from the investigatory stage through trial, if necessary.

I hired Ms. VanLowe to represent me for a reckless driving charge and it was the best decision I could have made. She’s very professional and exudes a calm and confidence that immediately put me ease. I highly recommend her.

If you have received a citation for any traffic violation, it is important that you take the matter seriously.  Most traffic convictions come with an assigned demerit point value, and the accumulation of too many points can result in an administrative license suspension by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.  In addition, certain serious offenses can be charged as a criminal misdemeanor or felony.  Ms. VanLowe defends clients against Virginia and federal traffic violation cases and works to avoid the conviction and demerit points.

The firm defends clients against the following types of traffic violations:

  • Reckless driving

  • Driving on a revoked or suspended license

  • Driving without a license

  • Speeding

  • Hit-and-run/leaving the scene of an accident
