3 hidden consequences of a suspended driver’s license

Like most motorists in Virginia, you probably do not give much thought to your driver’s license. After all, assuming you have one, you simply get behind the wheel of your car and hit the road. Suspended driver’s licenses in Virginia, however, are probably more common than you think. 

An experienced guide is crucial after drunk driving charges

Virginians should know that law enforcement will be out in force during the holiday season looking for drivers who might be operating their vehicles under the influence. While that will inevitably lead to the arrest of people who were driving with a blood-alcohol concentration that is beyond the legal limit, it does not necessarily mean that everyone who is facing charges is guilty. There is always a strategy for a legal defense. Given the penalties that can be assessed for a drunk driving conviction, it is crucial to have legal advice immediately.

Man faces criminal allegations for DUI and assaulting an officer

People can sometimes be combative when they are arrested and decide that they want to resist arrest. Any type of assault on a law enforcement officer will cause innumerable problems that must be addressed with a strong criminal defense.

What is identity theft and what are its penalties?

For those who are accused of identity theft, it is important to understand that the allegations can be serious with significant penalties if there is a conviction. Knowing exactly what constitutes identity theft is a key factor in lodging a strong defense and seeking a positive resolution.

Man faces criminal allegations for assault and property damage

In Manassas, there are often unusual criminal allegations that result in people being arrested and faced a litany of charges. Not every case is the same, though, which is why it is important for those who are charged to understand their rights and how to build a strong criminal defense. Some of the most complicated cases involve domestic disputes that spiral out of control, involve other people who had nothing to do with the situation, and escalate into property damage. For those dealing with police investigations into their behavior and an arrest, it is critical to call for a defense attorney immediately.

How do driver’s license points work in Virginia?

Whether you have been driving for years or just received your first driver’s license, you have probably heard about Virginia’s point system. Virginia law handles driving privileges differently from other states. If you want to avoid a license suspension or revocation, you should know how motor vehicle infractions affect your driver’s license.
