DWI Queen Put Our Experience in Your Corner



The terms "DUI" and "DWI" are often used interchangeably. Virginia L. Landry wants to clear up the confusion between the terms. Virginia is known throughout the nation as the DUI Queen®, or the DWI Queen®.

  • The term DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence.
  • The term DWI stands for Driving While Intoxicated.

Most states either have a DWI statute or a DUI statute. There are a few states that also use other terms that label the crime of drunk driving. While there are significant evidentiary and penalty issues among the states for a DUI or DWI conviction, but there is a fair amount of consistency in the way these laws among the states are being enforced.

California uses the term DUI for drunk driving offenses. The reason Virginia L. Landry is known as both the DUI Queen® and the interchangeable term DWI Queen® is because of the consistency between California and other states in their application of DUI / DWI laws.

The consistencies include the manner in which the officer first identifies and administers standardized sobriety field tests on a suspected DUI driver, the use of portable breath testing devices at the scene of the car stop, and the evidentiary chemical tests used to obtain the evidence geared towards obtaining a conviction against a DUI suspect.

The government has sponsored a number of scientific research projects in an attempt to standardize field sobriety and chemical testing. Invariably, after the research has been disproved in court by numerous attorneys, the government has appointed committees that changed the interpretation of research projects, created policies and procedures contrary to the findings of the research, or created other programs / initiatives based on obtaining higher conviction rates for DUI rather than basing their decisions on the interest of justice.

The best DUI defense attorneys in the nation have to continually educate themselves on the research and science behind each change or addition in government policy. All of these policies are seemingly geared towards coercing people charged with DUI to simply plead guilty without hiring a highly qualified attorney, and without challenging the sufficiency of the evidence against them. Don't let that happen to you!


A definition found for the word "Queen" is "something having eminence or supremacy in a given domain and personified as a woman."

Virginia L. Landry is the DWI Queen® and DUI Queen® because she has obtained the highest level of education and experience necessary to have supremacy in the courtroom when standing up for the rights of those charged or in a classroom when teaching attorneys across the nation on how to best defend people charged with a DWI.
