About Me

After receiving my degree in Legal Studies from the University of Kentucky, I left home and headed north to Syracuse Universtiy for law school.  I graduated with honors from Syracuse, and although I enjoyed my time there the winters were brutal so after graudating I moved south to VA.


 


Unlike many others, I passed the bar exam on my first try and landed a job with a law firm in Manassas, Virginia, where I mainly handled Criminal Defense cases.  After about 3.5 years I left that job and opened my own law firm focusing exclusively on DUI / DWI, Criminal & Traffic Defense all across Virginia. 


 


I think it is fair to say that I have earned the respect of police, prosecuting attorneys, judges and fellow defense lawyers and developed a reputation as a diligent, zealous and ethical advocate.  In addition to my law practice I have served as a Special Prosecutor at the request of the Commonwealth's Attorney, and for more than a decade I served as a Legal Instructor at the Prince William County Criminal Justice Academy where I taught Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Constitutional Law and Evidence to police recruits. 


 


I have successfully represented clients accused of seemingly every type of crime, from the least serious Traffic offenses to the most serious Felony offenses, including offenses related to the following:


 


Alcohol:  DUI / DWI, Drunk in Public, Underage Possession of Alcohol, etc.


 


Drugs:  Possession, Manufacturing, Distribution, Possession With Intent to Distribute, etc.


 


Theft:  Grand Larceny, Petit Larceny, Embezzlement, Shoplifting, Credit Card Theft, etc


 


Fraud:  Forgery, Uttering, Obtaining Money by False Pretenses, Writing Bad Checks, etc.


 


Violence:  Murder, Manslaughter, Aggravated Malicious Wounding, Malicious Wounding, Unlawful Wounding, Assault & Battery, etc.


 


Sex:  Rape, Carnal Knowledge, Aggravated Sexual Battery, Indecent Liberties, Sexual Battery, etc. 


 


Property:  Common Law Burglary, Statutory Burglary, Unlawful Entry, Trespassing, etc. 


 


Driving:  DUI / DWI, Reckless Driving, Driving Suspended, Hit & Run, Attempting to Elude Police, etc. 


 


As you can see, whatever it is - misdemeano or felony, we can help. 


 


The more I learned about DUI / DWI defense, the more I came to believe the Virginia criminal justice system simply unfair to people accused of DUI / DWI - which made me want to learn even more about DUI / DWI defense.  I was already enjoying a tremendous amount of success handling DUI / DWI cases and I thought I knew all I needed to know, but when I accepted into the National  College for DUI Defense (NCDD) several years ago I quickly realized how little I actually knew.  


 


From that point forward I have never stopped learning and I have been tirelessly working to stay on the cutting edge of DUI / DWI Defense to try and make sure my clients are treated fairly.   


 


I have completed certification training on:


     - Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST)


     - Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE)


     - Police Traffic RADAR/LIDAR


 


I have completed various certification training and education programs on several breath testing machines, including:


     - ECIR II (Virginia's new breath testing machine)


     - Intoxilyzer 8000 (the new and improved version of the Intoxilyzer 5000)


     - Intoxilyzer 5000 (Virginia used this for about 15 yrs before switching to the ECIR II)


     - Intoxilyzer 400


     - Intoxilyzer S-D5


     - Intoxilyzer S-D2


     


I have completed more general education and training courses about DUI / DWI Defense than I could list or you'd ever bother reading, but here are a few of the highlights:


     - National College for DUI Defense trial skills course held on the grounds of Harvard Law School  


     - Mastering Scientific Evidence in DUI / DWI Cases


     - Forensic Breath Alcohol Analysis


     - Medical Defenses to DUI


     - DWI Means Defend With Ingenuity


 


As a matter of course, I complete these courses every couple of years as part of my continuing effort to stay on the cutting edge for my clients. 


 


I co-authored a book about DUI in Virginia entitled DUI / DWI Arrest Survival Guide: The Guilt Myth and I have appeared on television as a Virginia DUI Consultant.

  • Robert Emmett Battle

    I highly recommend Kevin Wilson to anyone charged with DUI or Reckless Driving in the Manassas or Fairfax Virginia areas. Kevin has proven to be an experienced and skilled trial lawyer. I have personally viewed his expertise in court and note that he has been at the forefront of raising some novel legal defenses which lead to the suppression of blood test results in DUI cases.
