At Mountaineer Criminal Law Group, we have handled hundreds of criminal defense trials. We focus on DUI defense for clients in Morgantown and throughout West Virginia. We can help you understand your rights and options in your DUI trial and walk you through your DMV hearings to protect your driving privileges.

Jail time is not required for a first offense DUI conviction (BAC under .15), but it is possible. For anything more than a simple, first offense DUI conviction, you will face some mandatory jail time.

How Will a DUI Conviction Affect My Record?
If you are convicted for DUI in West Virginia, the conviction will remain as part of your permanent criminal record. Obviously, this will have a negative impact on your job and housing prospects and tarnish your reputation in the community. For first-time DUI offenders who had less and a .15 BAC, there are deferral programs available that include the possibility of dismissing the charges and expunging them from the driver’s permanent record.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"I had hired Mr Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before i had met her for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her. My mistake to hire him for her but her blessing. I know she didn’t thank you enough so allow me to for her. Very highly recommend Mr. Logue.” A.C.
★★★★★
I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped for. Sean and his team worked hard for me. They're the best! Anonymous
★★★★★
After the salesmen told me my gun application "wouldn't be a problem," I was charged with an illegal attempt to posses a firearm. Sean Logue has a good relationship with the DA, but still pushed them to have a trial and I was found not guilty of the felony charge. Sean is a tough and smart lawyer who knows his way around the courtrooms. Anonymous

I am happy to be able to share this information with everyone. Mr. Logue gave attention to our problem immediately and resolved the issue for us quickly. He is an attorney who is respected, not just by us but the court system. I am thankful we found him, and would recommend him to anyone needing a great attorney to represent them. Anonymous
★★★★★
Mr Logue was the one I hired after talking to other attorneys about my case. He was the most knowledgeable and explained everything to me about his plan for me moving forward. He was always available to answer my questions and fought hard and got my charge dismissed!! Don't waste your time looking for anyone else to help you. Mr Logue did an amazing job and very professional! Anonymous
