West Virginia Beefs Up DUI Patrols, Checkpoints for Holidays

Watch out, West Virginia drivers (and DUI defense lawyers), police are in the midst of what they are calling a “Holiday Blitz.” That means motorists will be seeing the Mountain State’s best and brightest out in force – there will be more checkpoints and more patrols as we head into prime holiday celebration time.

The beefed-up enforcement efforts are annual, and are sponsored by the Governor’s Highway Safety Commission, and they target drunk drivers. The tagline they’re using is, “Drive sober or get pulled over,” and, as a DUI defense lawyer, I would like to join them in passing along that warning.

There’s a reason DUI patrols are heightened around the holiday season. Take these statistics, for instance: The nonprofit Mothers Against Drunk Driving reported that 52 percent of fatal car crashes on Christmas and 57 percent on New Years are the result of impaired drivers. Then there’s this Centers for Disease Control statistic: 1,200 alcohol-related deaths will happen on the road this holiday season, with another 25,000 people expected to also be injured.

Unless you want to spend the New Year worrying about retaining a DUI lawyer, paying court costs and a year of ignition-interlock on your car, don’t tempt fate this holiday season and drink and drive. Pick a designated driver, call a cab, pay for a hotel room… call your mom or dad or girlfriend or cousin and have them pick you up from your holiday reveling – just don’t get behind the wheel after you’ve had a few drinks. Trust the guy who’s represented more than 300 clients charged with DUI: It’s not a chance worth taking this holiday season, or ever.

"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
