Fighting For Your Rights After A DUI Or Serious Traffic Offense
For most of us, driving is critical to our lives. Losing your driver’s license, even temporarily, can be a major setback. A DUI/DWI or serious traffic violation deserves a strong defense, as a conviction can cost you your license, reputation and potentially your freedom.
I’m David L. Heilberg, PLC, a Charlottesville-based DUI defense lawyer and traffic ticket attorney. I have many decades of experience navigating these and other criminal offenses in Virginia courts. You can count on me to find the strongest angle for protecting your driving privileges, freedom and reputation.
A Strong Defense Against Intoxicated Driving Charges
A DUI charge – also called a DWI/OVI/OWI in other parts of the country – is nothing to play around with. You could face the loss of your driver’s license, jail time, significant fines, a permanent criminal record and other stiff penalties.
I can defend you against any kind of DUI charge involving alcohol, THC, marijuana/cannabis or other substances. I know how to pinpoint the strongest DUI defenses to protect your rights and prevent a conviction whenever possible.
Serious Traffic Offenses
Virginia uses a points-based system for serious traffic offenses. If you get a conviction for a moving traffic violation, you will be assessed points against your license, which can result in loss of your driving privileges if you accumulate too many points. You could also face insurance hikes and hefty fines.
Given these consequences, you shouldn’t try to handle the charges alone, and you certainly shouldn’t plead guilty without first consulting a lawyer. I can defend you against traffic violations such as:
- Reckless driving
- Aggressive driving
- Driving on a suspended license
- Excessive speeding
- Eluding an officer
I can also defend you if you have a commercial driver’s license that is in jeopardy.
