Virginia Beach DUI Lawyer
Defending Those Accused in Norfolk for 20+ Years
Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) can happen to anyone. Punishments get harsher each year. Even a first offense DUI can result in mandatory jail time, suspension of your operator’s license, and installation of an interlock to test your breath in order to start your car. There are multiple statutes that each must be proven in order to convict you of DUI. Your defense is in the details. We hate to lose cases. Let’s evaluate your case together and discover if there is a way to win it.
Attorney Scott Hallauer at Hallauer Law Firm has handled thousands of DUI cases as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. We can see the case from all the angles. Our law firm is a proven resource whether you have never been arrested before or you are facing felony charges for repeat offenses, high blood-alcohol content (BAC), causing an accident, or other circumstances.

Always Prepared for Trial or Negotiation on Your Behalf
Some DUI/DWI defense lawyers treat nearly every case in a similar fashion and primarily look to enter a guilty plea.
While we make no false or unrealistic promises, our attorneys are willing to go to trial and committed to finding viable strategies for winning an acquittal or dismissal, such as:
- Attacking problems with the legality of the traffic stop and arrest, including insufficient cause
- Exposing improper administration of field sobriety tests or Breathalyzer testing for BAC, mechanical problems that make the results unreliable, or physical conditions of yours that were not taken into account
- Cross-examining the arresting officer and any other witnesses effectively to reveal other legal or technical issues relevant to your DUI stop and arrest
