A Veteran-Owned Law Firm Serving Virginia, West Virginia And Ohio

Fighting Against DUI Charges

No matter whether you did not feel drunk or no one was hurt, a DUI conviction can haunt you for a lifetime. Even if you are facing your first DUI, you still need to protect yourself with the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

I am Jason Ballard, an experienced criminal defense attorney who is committed to protecting the rights and freedom of his clients throughout Virginia, West Virginia and Ohio. I know what is at stake in these claims, and I am prepared to fight these charges on your behalf from my office of Ballard Law LLC.

The Consequences Of Conviction

A DUI conviction for a first or second offense includes sentencing such as a year in jail, thousands of dollars in fines, years of license suspension, mandatory alcohol education and probation. Additionally, any conviction will also make any consequences of future charges even more severe, and can result in a permanent loss of license and up to 5 years of jail time.

It may be possible to avoid punishment in exchange for negotiating treatment for alcoholism instead. While this may not seem to be a preferred option, it can help you keep your record clean, and avoid time behind bars and substantial fines.

I take the time to review your case, explore all possible options of defending yourself, present you with the pros and cons of each option, and pursue the option you think is best to protect your needs.
