I am both a member of the National College for DUI Defense, and a Founding Member of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association, and I am recognized nationwide as an authority on DUI/DWI in Virginia. I regularly serve as a consultant on Virginia DUI / DWI laws and I have even appeared on tv as a Legal Analyst concerning Virginia DUI / DWI laws.
I own my own law firm and my practice is essentially limited to DUI/DWI, Reckless Driving and Criminal Defense. I also served as a police academy Legal Instructor for over a decade at the Prince William County Public Safety Training Academy, so I understand the criminal justice process from the police officer's perspective. If you need a lawyer, you might as well have a lawyer who taught the police.
I have extensive, advanced, specialized education and highly technical training in the field of DUI/DWI Defense concerning topics such as: Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, the scientific and operational principles involved in both breath alcohol testing and blood alcohol testing, medical issues and DUI/DWI, etc.
I've shared some of my knowledge and insight in a book on DUI/DWI in Virginia called the DUI/DWI Arrest Survival Guide: The Guilt Myth - which I co-authored with Bob Battle. If you would like a FREE copy, all you have to do is visit my website.
Completing certification training breath alcohol machines is great, and I have gone even farther and acquired several of my own breathalyzers, including the Intoxilyzer 5000 and the Intoximeter ECIR which enables me to further familiarize myself with these machines.
All of this advanced and specialized education, training and experience has enabled me to have great success handling DUI/DWI cases, winning NOT GUILTY verdicts in some seemingly unwinnable DUI/DWI cases, including a case with a blood test result of 0.29 - more than 3 1/2 times the legal limit.
In addition to the National College for DUI Defense and the DUI Defense Lawyers Association mentioned above, I am a member of both the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Virginia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and 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 - misdemeanor or felony, my team and I can help.
I have never stopped learning and I work tirelessly to stay on the cutting edge of DUI / DWI Defense in an attempt to provide top notch representation to my clients. Below are some of the courses I have completed.
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 at Harvard Law School
- Mastering Scientific Evidence in DUI / DWI Cases
- Forensic Breath Alcohol Analysis
- Medical Defenses to DUI
- DWI Means Defend With Ingenuity

Kevin Wilson is exactly the kind of lawyer you want when charged with DWI in Virginia: someone who works hard to understand both the law and the science related to DWI charges. Kevin always attends the cutting edge courses and seminars in the field. I have referred clients to Kevin and they have always been very happy with his work. I give Kevin my highest endorsement.

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.
