Experts on Domestic Violence Matters

Domestic violence is an ugly crime, but the law can be confusing when it comes to defining what constitutes violence and what is simply a heated argument or the result of poor communication. Given the fact that a conviction for domestic violence can impact work opportunities, child custody and access to the family home, prompt, experienced legal advice is essential if you’ve been charged with a domestic violence offense.

Aggressive Sex Crime Lawyers

Sex crime charges are some of the most serious charges that a person can face. Sexual assault convictions carry significant penalties, including lengthy periods of incarceration and hefty fines. A felony conviction for a Virginia sex crime generally carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. Moreover, a sex crime conviction can impact a person’s life for many years to come, impacting a person’s ability to obtain housing and get a job, among other things. Charges of a Virginia sex crime alone can cause major damage to a person’s reputation and impact their ability to get and hold a job. For these reasons, it is essential to hire an experienced Virginia sex crime attorney to protect your rights and defend you against the criminal charges. Virginia attorney, David Steidle, has more than 15 years of experience handling criminal cases involving various Virginia sex crime charges. His vast experience and considerable legal knowledge regarding Virginia sex crimes have resulted in acquittals, dismissal of charges, and reduced sentences for many individuals throughout Virginia.

Virginia Drug Crimes Attorneys

If you or a family member gets charged with a drug crime, your freedom and your future may depend on the lawyer you chose to defend your case. The penalties for drug crimes—from possession to trafficking—involve harsh fines and possible jail time. Even after you serve your time, your conviction will be public information available to potential employers, professional licensing boards, and schools. Thus, your drug offense can have far-reaching effects into your future. With so much at stake, you owe it to yourself to hire the right criminal defense attorney to handle your case. An experienced drug crimes attorney will look into how the police arrested you, pulled you over, or searched your property. In many cases, the police trample the suspect’s constitutional rights when conducting an arrest or a search, which can lead to the dismissal of the criminal charges. But it takes an aggressive and knowledgeable Virginia drug defense attorney to exploit such weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.

Federal Case Experts

A crime can be charged in Federal Court when an individual’s activities violate a Federal criminal law, a crime is committed over two State lines, or the crime is committed in International waters of which the United States avails itself of jurisdiction. At face value, most would tell you that if you find yourself at the receiving end of the Federal government’s accusatory finger, you better retain not only a great criminal lawyer but also a great criminal lawyer that is active in the Federal criminal system. The Federal criminal attorneys at The Steidle Law Firm actively practice in Federal Court in the State of Virginia.
