DUI/DWI And Traffic Violations
Defending Drunk Driving Charges in Virginia
DUI/DWI or other traffic violation offenses can have a serious impact on your life. You may face high fines, jail time or lose your driver’s license.

At the Law Office of Patrick J. Kenney, PLC, we will do everything we can to defend you in negotiation and in the courtroom.

Each year, many people are pulled over for drunk driving on I-81, I-581, Rt. 460 or Rt. 220 in Virginia. If you are one of those people, we will guide you through the criminal defense process to protect your driving privileges. There are a few important things to know:
- Multiple offenses, the presence of children in the car or higher blood alcohol levels (BAC) can all lead to more severe consequences.
- Refusing a breath test results in a misdemeanor and mandatory license suspension.
Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony DUI/DWI charges, we will work hard to find holes in the prosecution’s case, including:
- Did the police have a lawful reason to stop you?
- Were the field sobriety tests correctly administered?
- Was your arrest constitutional?
Answering these questions may lead to a dismissal or reduced charges in DUI and DWI cases.
