If I'm a passenger in a car, can I be charged with drunk in public?

his does happen fairly often in Fairfax County.  

Usually the passenger or girlfriend wants to argue with the officers who are arresting a DWI driver.  A good Fairfax County Criminal Defense Lawyer will have much success defending these Drunk in Public charges.   

Cops will rarely give a breath test in a Fairfax County Drunk In Public case, and they usually don't waste any time doing sobriety tests either.  Unfortunately, the client has already spent a night in jail without a trial and is only facing a fine if he or she is convicted.   

Our Mission

Our Mission is to get the best possible result for each client, while including the client in the decision-making process along the way.  Every case is different, so we strive to gain detailed knowledge of the special facts and then find all of the relevant law to help get the best result either at trial or by negotiation.

Areas We Serve

Our Office is located at Fairfax Courthouse.   The Courthouse and Jail are right outside my window and you can’t park any closer than our office.  We focus on defense of DUI, traffic, and other misdemeanor and drug charges.
