Dedicated DUI Defense Representation

Fight DUI Charges in Harrisonburg

Providing Effective & Efficient Representation

At Keefer Law Firm, our DUI lawyer in Harrisonburg understands that the DUI laws in Virginia are among the toughest in the nation. If you have been arrested for DUI, there are several things you need to do before you and your lawyer even go to court the first time. ​​​

You should never agree to plead guilty to a DUI in Virginia without having a defense lawyer to represent you. Accepting the first plea offer made without performing any defense-oriented investigation will carry lifetime consequences for you. Pleading guilty to a DUI simply to be done with the case will result in, among other things, loss of security clearance, inability to obtain certain types of employment, inability to travel to certain countries, inability to rent a car, and much more.

To consult about DUI laws in Virginia and how our Harrisonburg drunk driving lawyer in can help you, contact us online or call us at (540) 433-6906 for your free case evaluation.

Virginia DUI Driver’s License Suspensions

You do not need to be convicted in order to lose your driver’s license after a DUI arrest. All DUI cases in this state follow two simultaneous paths – a criminal and a civil case. The criminal case works its way through the court, while the civil case begins when we file a challenge of your automatic license suspension. You can keep your driver’s license while we challenge the automatic suspension.

Virginia DUI Conviction Consequences

A conviction in a Virginia DUI case has serious, lifetime consequences that many people who simply plead guilty may not understand.

  • Loss of security clearance
  • Inability to travel to certain countries
  • And inability to rent a car

Virginia courts are not required to tell you all of these consequences before you plead guilty.
