A DUI conviction can result in a maximum fine of $2500 and a minimum fine of $250. However, the minimum fines increases drastically with subsequent convictions and elevated BAC. Additionally there is a mandatory 12 month license suspension with ignition interlock being required for a restricted license. If convicted of DUI, you will also be required to complete the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program (VASAP). Finally, for any case resulting in a conviction at an elevated BAC, greater than .14, there is a mandatory jail sentence.


I have had a tremendous amount of success representing DUI clients recently. In one recent case, the individual was charged with DUI while transporting a juvenile, a charge carrying a mandatory minimum 5 days in jail. I was able to negotiate with the prosecutor for a reduction of the charge to reckless driving, thus avoiding the DUI conviction and any jail time. In another recent case, my client was charge with DUI with an elevated BAC, above .14, which carries a mandatory minimum of 5 days in jail. In this instance I was able to convince the prosecutor to strike the last sentence referring to the elevated BAC, which kept my client from having to serve any time in jail.

Additionally, representation does not end when the trial has concluded. I will answer any questions you may have through the complicated aftermath of a DUI.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

After law school, Trey joined a law firm focusing primarily on the defense of traffic crimes and infractions. This allowed him to gain invaluable experience and expertise within the field quickly. After spending the first couple of years with this firm, Trey decided to open his own practice maintaining the same focus on traffic cases. By opening his own firm, Trey was able to keep his overhead low allowing him to charge very competitive rates for his clients.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

By focusing his practice on the area of traffic, Trey has been able to gain an invaluable knowledge base of the possible defenses and the best way to approach these cases. This is especially true with DUI defense which is a very specialized field dealing with many scientific elements. Many other firms will represent clients with traffic related offense but few narrow their focus the way Mattox Law is able to. This expertise allows Trey to give honest and accurate free initial consultations and set his clients up to get the best possible outcome in court.
