|DUI Defense Attorney
Jeff C. Martin
The consequences of a driving under the influence (DUI) conviction in Virginia Beach are far reaching. In addition to criminal penalties, which include incarceration, loss of driving privileges, and fines, you may develop a criminal record that lasts a lifetime. With the right Virginia Beach DUI attorney on your side, you can increase your chances of having your case dismissed or reducing your DUI to a lesser charge.
Staying Up-To-Date On Virginia Beach DUI Laws
Attorney Jeff C. Martin has focused his practice on defending Virginia drivers who have been charged with DUI. The Virginia legislature frequently makes changes to its drunk-driving regulations and statutes, so you need a defense lawyer who stays up to date on the law and adjusts his or her defense strategies accordingly.
After a Virginia Beach DUI arrest, you may face an administrative license suspension for at least four months—even before you are found guilty in criminal court. As stated above, you may also face expensive fines, jail time, and mandatory drug and alcohol education classes. Your insurer could also raise your premiums, and you may even lose your job if a clean criminal and/or driving record is required.
While studying Biology for his undergraduate degree at Towson University, Mr. Martin earned several awards and scholarships for his efforts in intensive physiology and chemistry courses. He also spent some time as a researcher in a physiology lab at his university and as a trauma tech for the University of Maryland Critical Care and Intensive Care Units. His academic background, coupled with his experience in the medical field, gives him an edge when analyzing evidence in his clients' cases.
Mr. Martin received his legal degree at the William & Mary School of Law, where he graduated with honors. While in law school, his advocacy efforts earned him the Gambrell Professional Award, and his work with the PELE Special Education Advocacy Clinic was rewarded with the CALI Award.
Let Attorney Martin Handle Your Defense
Thanks to his extensive knowledge on the topic of DUI defense, Mr. Martin was asked to research and contribute to a book written by fellow Virginia defense attorney Michael C. Tillotson. The book, titled Virginia DUI Law: Understanding the Scientific, Medical, Technological, and Legal Aspects of a DUI Case, contains a chapter written by Mr. Martin about Virginia DUI law and its history. His highly-regarded insight on drunk driving statutes and evidence has helped many of his clients obtain an acquittal or the dismissal of their case.
