Because you are INNOCENT until proven guilty! We are a boutique practice with a heavy concentration on DWI and other Serious Traffic cases.

DWI, Reckless Driving, and Driving on Suspended License are serious offenses, a Class 1 Misdemeanor in Virginia. A first offense is punishable with up to one year in jail, up to a $2500 fine, a one year suspension of your privilege to operate a motor vehicle and other sanctions. Higher blood alcohol levels, subsequent offenses and other aggravating factors include additional sanctions and mandatory active jail sentences. The determination of guilty beyond a reasonable doubt is ultimately up to a Judge or Jury. We prepare every case as if is going to trial and preserve every factual, Constitutional and technical defense. We work closely with our clients to prepare a defense for their specific case. If you are charged with DWI or any other serious traffic offense, such as Reckless Driving or Driving on a Suspended License, give us a call for a FREE confidential consultation.

Loudoun County Sheriff's Office

Loudoun Sheriff Mike Chapman joined leaders from #Loudoun County and the Washington, DC region for a regional substance, opioid dependency meeting held by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments in Washington, DC.

Regional representatives from law enforcement and emergency services, substance abuse agencies, and state health departments discussed the success of initiatives within their communities to help support member jurisdictions.

Sheriff Chapman discussed the Loudoun County's whole-of-government approach as part of the Heroin Operations Team which was initiated in 2015. Last year, the LCSO saw a 9% decrease in non-fatal overdoses and 18% decrease in heroin fatalities from 2016.

Loudoun County was the only jurisdiction in the entire Baltimore-Washington region to see such a decline. The remainder of the region saw increases in opioid overdoses and deaths averaging well over 50%.

PRESS RELEASE
September 7, 2017 10:00 a.m.

Independent Dash-Cam Video Leads To Dismissal of Road Rage & Gun Charges

WINCHESTER, VIRGINIA…Wounding and Gun charges will be dismissed on September 12, 2017 at 8:30 a.m. On March 7, 2017 John David Ault, II was arrested and charged with Unlawful Wounding and Brandishing a Firearm in an alleged “Road Rage” incident in Frederick County, Virginia. Due to the nature of the charge, Mr. Ault, a concealed firearm license holder, had his weapon confiscated and his security clearance has been placed under review. Mr. Ault is represented by Scott N. Kazem, Esq. of Leesburg, Virginia.

The purported victim in the case, Mr. Lonnie Hitchcock, of Frederick County, alleged that John David Ault, II nearly hit him while driving in the opposite direction on Brucetown Road and then pulled over to confront him. Mr. Hitchcock further asserted that the defendant exited his vehicle and pulled a gun from his waistband, and that once the encounter was over, that Mr. Ault hit him with his car.

Diligent legal work and investigation uncovered evidence in the form of an independent witness who had dashboard camera video which clearly demonstrates that the statements given to law enforcement by Mr. Hitchcock were patently false. The video, in fact, shows Mr. Hitchcock as the aggressor, travelling in the same direction on Brucetown Road, running Mr. Ault off the road, and that Mr. Ault never exited his vehicle. As a result, all the charges pending against Mr. Ault are being dismissed. The case will be heard by the Frederick County General District Court at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, for the Judge to enter his Order dismissing the charges. Mr. Ault’s firearm will be returned to him once the case is dismissed. The next step is to have the record of the arrest expunged from Mr. Ault’s record and clear his name so that he can put this horrible nightmare to rest.

Defense counsel believes that the Frederick County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office is considering criminal charges against Mr. Hitchcock for filing a false police report. Mr. Ault is also considering his civil remedies against Mr. Hitchcock.
