An Experienced DUI Attorney for Virginia Clients
B.R. HICKS, P.C. provides aggressive legal representation throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia for individuals who have been arrested for drunk driving. A former assistant prosecutor and police officer, Mr. Hicks handles well over a hundred DUI cases on behalf of his clients and as your drunk driving attorney will gladly take your case to trial if necessary. When you hire B.R. HICKS, P.C., Mr. Hicks will not send a substitute; he and only he will represent you.
Principled Legal Representation
Unlike many other Virginia DUI lawyers, Mr. Hicks does not take on clients who have been previously convicted of drunk driving unless they also consent to treatment. Although people can make mistakes, repeated arrests for drunk driving are often symptomatic of a larger pattern of reckless behavior that can have real-life consequences for others. It’s a good move for chronic drunk drivers to seek help before their actions lead to tragedy for themselves or for others.
Put His Knowledge of DUI Defense to Work for You
Virginia prosecutors go after defendants in DUI cases very aggressively. Don’t rely on just any DUI attorney when it comes to your criminal defense. As a former police officer and assistant prosecutor himself, Mr. Hicks knows the ins and outs of Virginia criminal law and is well positioned to defend you. Furthermore, Mr. Hicks is knowledgeable about Federal law and can be a valuable ally for drivers who are arrested for DUI on Federal territory such as the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Even though judges in federal DUI cases do not have the authority to suspend or revoke a driver’s license, the court will usually make probation conditional on the defendant’s right to drive being restricted or limited to driving to work, etc. Virginia’s DMV will suspend or restrict the defendant’s driver’s license if he or she is convicted of DUI in Federal court.

You Don’t Need to Take a Breathalyzer Test to Be Arrested
There are many reasons why an individual can be arrested for drunk driving besides simply blowing a breathalyzer test. A police officer doesn’t need to know your BAC to make an arrest; in fact, any number of actions– including slurring speech, failing a sobriety test, or engaging in reckless driving – can serve as probable cause and lead to DUI charges. In any case, once you have been charged, you cannot talk your way out of being prosecuted. Remember: anything you say can and usually will be used against you in court. Don’t try to explain yourself or make excuses – contact B.R. HICKS, P.C. today to talk to a Fairfax drunk driving attorney who will fight for your rights and freedom at every stage of your encounter with the criminal justice system following an arrest.
