Yeah, I screwed up and am pretty embarrassed. Got a DUI yesterday and feel absolutely terrible. Anyone have any recommendations besides a public stoning? I need to find a lawyer in the area. Any sudjestions?

If it's your first one, you really don't have anything to worry about unless you blew over .15. Then you'll have to do 5 days (you can probably get weekends), and have an ignition interlock installed on your car (more money and a pain in the ass). If you have a job, you'll be able to get a restricted license.

Regardless, you'll have some fines and ASAP (more money) and other BS (involving time and money) to deal with.

Here's a good site that is pretty much up to date on what you can expect.

A good friend of mine used John Rockecharlie. (This was in Chesterfield). He had nothing but good things to say about him.

Sorry I don't know any in Richmond....

Shit I didn't even see this guys link. If you can afford Cary Bowen he is the man to have. He will do you right. I've been up against him on a number of occasions and he is very thorough. As a cop, I cringe when I see him walk up on one of my cases, because I know he's going to give me a run for my money.

Plus, he's a paratrooper.

Thanks for all the help guys. I'm looking into all of em now. My user name was what a old boss called me when I was 19. I'm 36 now. Still can't believe I screwed up.
