Knowledgeable Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys

Virginia has some of the toughest DUI laws in the nation. If you have been arrested for drunk driving, you face the possibility of significant penalties, including jail time, court ordered alcohol treatment, driver's license suspension, probation and significant court fines. If you have been charged with felony DUI, you could even be sentenced to serve time in prison.

Protect your rights by retaining an experienced DUI defense lawyer at Sanzone & Baker, LLP. We defend clients throughout Virginia who have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI). We handle all drunk driving charges and related matters, including:

  • Underage DUI (drivers under 21)
  • Felony DUI
  • DUI drugs

In addition to defending clients against their criminal charges, we assist clients with issues impacting their driving privileges. To speak with a criminal defense attorney at our firm about a DUI charge or driver's license restoration services, contact our law office in Lynchburg, Virginia.


Do not plead guilty to a DUI charge before speaking with an attorney. Many people incorrectly assume that they have no defense to their DUI charge.

Even if you were over the legal limit, there may be ways that we can make a positive difference in your case. Virginia DUI laws are highly technical. We will closely examine the nature of your traffic stop as well as the evidence gathered by law enforcement to identify key issues which could impact your case:

  • Did your arresting officer have sufficient cause to stop your vehicle?
  • Did the officer properly administer your field sobriety tests?
  • Did the officer properly administer your breath test?
  • Did law enforcement violate your constitutional rights?

We will look to these and other issues to determine if a charge dismissal is possible, if we can fight your charges effectively at trial, or if a favorable plea agreement may be obtained that minimizes penalties arising from your charges. We work hard to pursue the most favorable outcome possible for each client we serve.
