  3. Speeding and traffic ticket
    10%
    In Virginia, what some call "speeding" is actually RECKLESS DRIVING - a crime punishable by jail, a fine and a license suspension. A RD conviction can lead to increased insurance rates, the inability to drive a company vehicle, loss of a job, etc.

TRIAL LAWYER; DWI BOOK AUTHOR; SFST INSTRUCTOR; GUN LAW LECTURER; POLICE ACADEMY LEGAL INSTRUCTOR; SEMINAR SPEAKER

I'm a Criminal Defense Attorney, author, Police Academy Legal Instructor, Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Instructor, Firearms and Use of Force Instructor, and an ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist, and I have been helping good people in bad situations all across Virginia for more than 27 years.  My firm handles all types of Criminal cases and I have successfully represented clients accused of everything from misdemeanor DUI / DWI offenses to serious felony criminal offenses involving drugs, guns and violent crimes.  We also handle civil matters such as Expungement of arrest records, Restoration of Driver Licenses and Gun Rights, and Forfeiture proceedings, etc.  

In addition to building a successful law practice, I have spent many years teaching.  I am a DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Instructor, and I have taught lawyers from coast to coast.  As a police academy Legal Instructor, I teach Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Rules of Evidence and Constitutional Law to police recruits.  As a contract attorney for U.S. Law Shield, I teach Constitutional Law and Virginia state laws relating to firearms, use of force, self-defense, etc.  

I am a Founding Member of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association, and a Member of the National College for DUI Defense, national organizations dedicated to raising the quality of DUI / DWI defense by educating lawyers about the many complex issues in DUI / DWI cases.  In addition, I am one of only two lawyers in Virginia to have earnied the designation of Forensic Lawyer-Scientist as recognized by the American Chemical Society Division of Chemistry and the Law (ACS-CHAL) for my study of chromatography, discussed in more detail below. 

I devote considerable time to seeking out and completing specialized education and training, and certification programs in the fields of forensic science and DUI / DWI defense, and it has helped me provide top-notch representation to my clients.  I am trained on Police RADAR/LIDAR, Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, breath alcohol testing, blood alcohol testing, medical issues which arise in DUI / DWI cases and as an Operator of several different breath testing machines, including the Intoximeter ECIR II currently used in Virginia. 

My advanced education, specialized training and vast experience has enabled me to win NOT GUILTY verdicts in some extremely difficult and seemingly unwinnable DUI/DWI cases, including a case with a blood test result of 0.29 - more than 3.5 times the 0.08 legal limit.  I have come to be recognized nationwide for my expertise regarding DUI/DWI and I regularly serve as a consultant on Virginia DUI/DWI laws.  I have appeared on tv as a Legal Analyst and I have been featured in both TIME magazine and Bloomberg Businessweek as a leader in the field of DUI/DWI Defense.

I have won cases at trial in all three trial courts in Virginia:  J&DR District Courts, General District Courts and Circuit Courts.  In addition, I have won in the Virginia Court of Appeals, thereby getting a felony conviction reversed and the case being dismissed.

I have 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 for breath alcohol machines is absolutely mandatory, in my opinion, for any lawyer who handles DUI/DWI cases.  I have gone even further and acquired several of my own breath testing machines, including an Intoxilyzer 5000 and an ECIR, which enables me to further familiarize myself with these machines.  Similarly, after completing training on forensic chromatography at Axion Analytical Laboratires, Inc., I acquired my own gas chromatograph, the machine used in the state lab to conduct gas chromatography.

I have earned the ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist Designation, as reocgnized by the Chemistry and the Law Division of the American Chemical Society.  As of October 2018, only one other lawyer in the entire state of Virginia has earned this ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist Designation.  To do so, I completed course work on the following subjects: 

     (1) Forensic Chromatography: Theory and Practice, which addresses the theory of Gas Chromatography, as well as ethanol based analysis by Headspace Gas Chromatography with a Flame Ionization Detector (HS-GC-FID);

     (2) Forensic Analysis of Solid Drugs, which addresses the instrumental analysis of solid drugs in their pre-consumption form using FTIR, Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS), Colormetrics, Microscopy, Thin Layer Chromatogrphy, etc.; and

     (3) Forensic Principles of DUID, which involves the pharmacology of drugs, issues of how drug use may or may not impact driving, instrumental analysis by GC-MS, Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS), etc. 

All three courses were 40-hour courses which included both classroom time and hands-on time working in a lab.  I was able to calibrate instruments, develop samples, inject samples for testing, analyze and interpret data, etc.  I used the instruments in the same way, using the same matrices, as an analyst would in a forensic laboratory.

I am also a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Virginia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.  I have been recognized for excellence by various organizations. 

I have successfully represented clients accused of all types of crime, including those listed below:

Alcohol:  DUI / DWI, Drinking While Driving, Intoxicated in Public, Underage Possession of Alcohol, Sale of Alcohol to a Minor, etc.

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

Theft:  Grand Larceny, Petit Larceny, Embezzlement, Shoplifting / Concealment, Credit Card Theft, Failure to Return Rental Property, Theft of Services, etc.

Fraud:  Forgery, Uttering Forged Document, Obtaining Money by False Pretenses, Bad Checks, Credit Card Fraud, Construction Fraud, etc.

Violence:  Murder, Manslaughter, Aggravated Malicious Wounding, Malicious Wounding, Robbery, Assault & Battery on Law Enforcement, Domestic Assault & Battery, etc.

Guns:  Possession by a Felon, Use of Firearm During Commission of a Crime, Making False Statements During Purchase, Possession of Concealed Weapon, etc.

Sex:  Rape, Aggravated Sexual Battery, Computer Solicitation of a Minor, Indecent Liberties, Carnal Knowledge, Sexual Battery, Contributing to the Delinquency of  Minor, etc. 

Property:  Common Law Burglary, Statutory Burglary, Unlawful Entry, Destruction of Property, Trespassing, Tampering with a Vehicle, etc. 

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

 

As you can see, whatever it is - misdemeanor or felony, my team and I can help. 

I work tirelessly to stay on the cutting edge 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 - Instructor (SFST)

     - Standardized Field Sobriety Testing - Practitioner (SFST)

     - Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE)

     - Police Traffic RADAR/LIDAR

 

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

     - ECIR II (Virginia's current 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 forensic courses on the following subjects and earned the ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist Designation: 

     - Forensic Chromatography: Theory & Practice

     - Forensic Drug Analysis

     - Forensic Principles of DUID

 

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 courses held at Harvard Law School (an annual program)

     - Mastering Scientific Evidence in DUI / DWI Cases (an annual program)

     - Forensic Breath Alcohol Analysis

     - Medical Defenses to DUI

Terrific Advocate!!
Mr. Wilson came highly recommended to me when I was facing a DUI. His knowledge and expertise in DUI defense was outstanding and gave me every bit of confidence in him as my lawyer. He quickly grasped the details of my case, calmed my nerves, was always honest and up front with regards to the options that I had and gave me truthful yet comprehensive answers to all of my questions. Both Mr. Wilson and his staff were always available, responsive and professional. They were there through every step of the process and made a difficult situation as easy as it could possibly be. The outcome of my case was far better than I could have ever imagined and I firmly believe that was directly related to Mr. Wilson’s extensive expertise in DUI defense. I am extremely relieved that I elected to use Mr. Wilson for legal representation and would highly recommend others facing a DUI or similar charge to seek his services

Best Attorney for Any Alcohol Related Offences!!!!!
The type of case I hired Mr. Wilson to represent me for two DIP charges and I think he did an excellent job. After having already paid the retainer fee, there came a point when I was ready to just throw in the towel and prepay the fines rather than going to court, but Mr. Wilson convinced me that I had nothing to lose and to trust in him to do his job. Which is exactly what I did and was very surprised with the outcome; it was far better than I had expected it to be. Even though a DIP is only a class 4 misdemeanor it is a criminal offense and in the state of VA, if you are found guilty and convicted of this charge then for the rest of your life you will have a criminal record. I have no regrets in hiring Mr. Wilson, and very much recommend him to anyone looking for a good lawyer whom is trustworthy.... and be prepared, because you may be very pleasantly surprised by the results you get.

Reckless Driving Case Dismissed
Working with Wilson Law firm has been amazing! From the time they took my case until the court date we were in constant communication and they offered me guidance and information about what to do to put all the chances on my side! I will recommend this law firm for your driving cases! Thank you for Mr. Bartfield for constantly calling and checking on the status of my documentation. Mr. Wilson is fighting for you with the Prosecutor to make sure your case can be handled fairly.

When Results Matter, Contact The Wilson Law Firm
Mr. Wilson and his staff are a cohesive team that work together to prepare a personalized game plan tailored to your specific situation to ensure the best possible outcome. I was impressed with how organized, responsive, and multi-tiered their approach was, providing me with a detailed list of things I can do on my end to improve my chances while they worked the case on their end, extending it as well around my busy work schedule. In addition to Mr. Wilson's immense legal acumen and education with all things traffic (even becoming lidar certified) he isn't just a top lawyer working for clients in the Manassas, VA community, he is a part of the fabric of the community itself, earning an invaluable repour with officers, prosecutors, judges, and the court ecosystem. I was charged with reckless driving (75mph in a 45mph zone), and had also had two six-point non-reckless tickets within a year prior and Mr. Wilson worked to get the result down to 54mph in a 45mph zone, from a criminal offense down to a simple traffic infraction and $100 fine. When it comes to traffic infractions, I can say from personal experience, no matter the point value, do not just pay the fine and get tried in abstentia, call Mr. Wilson ASAP, the price is more than fair, and the results are invaluable to your future!

Experienced professional who delivers results
I could not offer a stronger recommendation for Mr. Wilson and his firm. The results speak for themselves - 104/55 reckless reduced to 74/55 speeding, no suspension of license. Mr. Wilson provided a detailed set of mitigation instructions on how to have a fighting chance in court. I followed his instructions, and when the day came, he was able to do his best to reach a plea which was accepted. You could not ask for a more professional and experienced law firm. Thank you so much for your help!

Hire this Lawyer!
To say that I got myself "in a bind" is putting it light hearted. I have only had 2 speeding tickets in the last 20 years or so and have only been in traffic court to pay my fine and make deployment date. This time, it was different, I was nervous because of (in my mind) the severity of the charge. This was not a speeding ticket, the charge had the possibility of serious implications to my employment, current security clearance, and "Pursuit of Happiness". All the uncertainty, short time to respond to the court (9 days), and official possibilities of incarceration made me very nervous. The Wilson Law Firm was highly recommended by USCCA and after speaking with Fred, I hired them. It was worth every penny and I was not disappointed. In no time they had a plan for me and following their recommendations The Wilson Law Firm was able to resolve my case. Mr. Kevin Wilson and his team are true professional. All my calls, concerns, questions, and emails were quickly answered and resolved. Furthermore, Mr. Wilson's professionalism, civility, demeanor, competence, and ethics in court were impressive. He is dedicated, prepared, respectful of the court, and willing to extend a helping hand to others in court...those who look disoriented by the "legal-talk" and protocols of court. I personally saw him help a defendant, not his client, navigate the proceedings to the non-client satisfaction. I will highly recommend The Wilson Law Firm and Kevin Wilson to anyone in need of legal representation.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review about your experience with me and my team at The Wilson Law Firm. My team and I take great pride in providing top notch, personal representation for our clients. As you know, I serve as one of the lawyers on the USCCA Critical Response Team, and I am thrilled I was able to get such an excellent result for you. One of the things that sets The Wilson Law Firm apart from some other law firms is that we do not pay a third party company to answer our phone, take messages, etc. When our clients call The Wilson Law Firm, the friendly and familiar voice of someone working here in the firm answers the call. This often allows us to immediately address the issue, answer the question, etc., so our clients are not left waiting and wondering if and when a return phone call is coming. We recognize it is an extremely stressful time for our clients, and we do everything we can to try and ease that anxiety. Thank you again for providing others a glimpse of what it's like to work with The Wilson Law Firm.

5 Star Lawyer
I was charged with reckless driving and at first it seemed like such a minor traffic violation, but I am so glad I decided to get an attorney. I contacted Mr. Wilson about 2 months before my court date and got in touch with him immediately. The next day I was given a list of all the information I needed to give him to win my case and my court date was moved so that he could be the one to represent me. The homework list was extensive, but provided him with anything and everything he needed! After competing all information, he contacted me by phone and we discussed my case in detail calmly and rationally. He was very easy to talk to, explained everything in perfect detail, and was not the least bit judgmental. He made me feel comfortable and confident with the situation and having hired him to take care of this traffic violation. I received updates and paperwork through the mail as well as by email and text messages to keep me up to date with what was happening on Mr. Wilson’s end. A few days before my court date I called just to verify and ask a few questions to make sure that day would go as smooth as possible and to my relief I was told Mr. Wilson could go in and represent me without me even being there. As someone who had never been to court before, this was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. He called me right after it was over to tell me the results and they were all in my favor. You won’t find a better traffic attorney! Mr. Wilson is the best, experienced, and a decision you won’t regret. Call the Wilson Law Firm now! (703) 361-6100

Commonwealth of Virginia General District Court
Mr. Wilson was extremely professional in handling my criminal traffic case. He and his staff thoroughly investigated all aspects and interviewed me personally so he could represent me in a superior manner in court. He dug deep into the case so he would be totally familiar with all the conditions that applied. His representation resulted with the court dropping all charges. I would hire him again unconditionally if I ever need a lawyer.

Reckless Driving Case- Strongly Recommend
Very much recommend Mr. Wilson. I got charged with reckless driving this past fall and hired Mr. Wilson. I had many questions throughout the process, and each time I called the staff was always friendly and very helpful! On the court date, he was able to get the charges dropped to a traffic infraction, which was a much better outcome than I was expecting, given the alleged speed.
