About me

As a graduate of Western State University, Virginia L. Landry has grown her legal career over the past 25+ years. She quickly realized that criminal defense, particularly DUI, was her passion. As a fierce advocate for her clients, she never backs down from a fight and knows how to secure positive results on their behalf. Ms. Landry has handled countless DUI cases and is well-versed in the laws surrounding these charges. She has been Board Certified in DUI Defense, is a Regent for the National College for DUI Defense, and has received her certificate of instruction so that she can train others on DWI detection and standardized field sobriety tests used by law enforcement. With such a rich background in DUI, she is truly a premier DUI attorney in the Orange County area.
