LAWYER HAS VIRGINIA DUI CASES DISMISSED

POSTED BY CHAD G. DORSK, ESQ.

Dorsk Law Office, Plc. successfully defended two clients against  DUI charges in two cities in the same week. The Court dismissed the charges that his clients were driving under the influence.

Within 5 minutes after the accident police conducted field sobriety tests on the client. The client performed poorly and police arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence. Officers transported the suspect to an area hospital but did not proceed to have him checked for concussive symptoms.
