How can I get my license back after a DUI conviction?

If you have recently received a DUI conviction in Virginia, you may be wondering how you can get your license back. After all, a conviction has far reaching consequences that can interfere with your life for a long time.

Virginia is known nationally for its strict enforcement of driving while intoxicated laws, and the state is again strengthening its efforts to reduce related injuries and deaths with the launch of its third DWI enforcement squad.

What should I expect when a search warrant is issued for my home?

When law enforcement shows up at your door with a search warrant, you have the right to look it over. You do not have the right to refuse entry or to watch the search being conducted.

This officer is in charge and everyone, including you, must follow his or her directions.

Is mediation for you, and how does uncontested divorce work?

Divorce may be one of the most difficult life trials you will ever have to deal with. It is understandable that you and other Virginia residents would want to get through this stressful process as smoothly as possible. You might consider an uncontested divorce option, such as mediation or collaborative law. However, you should realize that these options are not for everyone. In some cases, traditional litigation might be the wiser choice.
