Sound representation as you face the criminal justice system

Being arrested on criminal charges is a stressful and fear-provoking experience, as the demeanor of law enforcement officers and prosecutors often makes accused people feel guilty before they get a chance to defend themselves.

That’s why it’s so important to have a dedicated criminal defense lawyer working for you, giving you opportunities to seek reduced or dropped charges and protecting your best interests. It is vital that you never admit to committing any crime or agree to any deal from prosecutors until you secure legal counsel. Our criminal defense attorneys can help with cases ranging from misdemeanors, such as first-time driving under the influence (DUI) charges, to felonies.

We strive to make sure individuals accused of serious crimes in Virginia have the information and resources they need as they face the criminal justice system. Our Criminal law FAQ page offers answers to some of the most common questions our clients have.

Being convicted of misdemeanor or felony charges could result in serious penalties that disrupt your entire life, including enormous fines, incarceration, probation and the loss of driving privileges. An experienced lawyer can provide you with the guidance and advice you need and a sound strategy moving forward.
