Lawyer in Roanoke, Virginia: Traffic Offenses and DUI


Protecting Your Rights since 1974


If you have been charged with a traffic violation, including driving under the influence (DUI), you want an experienced attorney to fight for your rights. The consequences can be severe, including substantial fines and penalties, a loss of your driving privileges, increased automobile insurance premiums and even incarceration. You want a lawyer who has successfully defended others on similar charges.

At the office of Charles R. Allen, Jr. Attorney at Law, I have been in practice for 35 years, fighting to protect the legal rights of individuals throughout the Roanoke area, including people charged with DUI or other traffic violations. I understand the stress and anxiety that can accompany a criminal prosecution and provide compassionate counsel in a family-friendly environment, taking the time to listen carefully to your concerns and treating you with dignity and respect. To schedule a free initial consultation, contact my office or call me at 540-904-1938 (toll-free at 866-698-9125).

Defending Traffic Tickets and DUI Charges


I represent local residents, as well as out-of-state visitors to Virginia, who have been charged with vehicle-related offenses, including individuals with a commercial drivers license (CDL). I handle all moving violations that are processed through the general district court, including speeding tickets and reckless driving. Though I have extensive trial experience, I will seek a plea bargain, if doing so is in your best interest. Doing so may save you considerable expense, points on your license, the possible suspension of your license or jail time.

If you have been charged with drunk driving, I will conduct a thorough examination of the evidence, facts and circumstances of your case. I will review the traffic stop to determine whether the arresting officer had probable cause to pull you over. I will examine the police report and question any witnesses to verify that you were advised of your rights before making any statements, and that field sobriety and blood alcohol tests were properly administered. If there are irregularities, I will seek the exclusion of evidence and/or the dismissal of charges, if appropriate.
