We represent clients in all courts where criminal matters are heard. This includes misdemeanor and felony matters in general district court, juvenile district court, circuit court, and federal district court. We also represent clients in matters such as criminal record expungement. What can a criminal attorney do for you? Our attorneys may use the plea bargaining process in an effort to have the prosecutor dismiss the case or reduce the charges against you. They will examine the evidence against you and, if there are any irregularities, challenge them. They will speak on your behalf, helping you avoid mistakes that could permanently damage your case and present your case in the most positive light.

It is our goal to make sure that you understand your rights and to provide you with the highest-quality representation for all family law matters.
Although Driving Under the Influence is a relatively common crime, few people are familiar with their rights and how to protect themselves in such a situation. Driving under the influence, referred to as, “drunk driving,” describes operating a motor vehicle while one’s blood alcohol content is above the legal limit. Driving under the influence in the Commonwealth can lead to a loss of license, fines, and possible mandatory jail time.
There are thousands of factors that must be considered if you are charged with a DUI. The legality of your arrest, field sobriety tests, proper functioning test equipment, correct handling of your evidence, and the conduct of the arresting officers are frequently contentious issues during legal proceedings. Many people who believed themselves guilty discovered they could avoid serious penalties when any number of these variables failed to withstand legal scrutiny. Make an appointment with us today to discuss your case and your rights.
We represent clients on all types of traffic offenses. There are many defenses to even the most minor tickets. If you have been charged with speeding or reckless driving, it is important to realize that you may be looking at more than just a simple ticket and fine. In Virginia, reckless driving is a class 1 misdemeanor, meaning you could be facing significant fines and/or jail time. Contact us to discuss your traffic case. Our attorneys have the experience to represent you in an attempt to have your ticket dismissed or minimized.
Minor “accidents” can have major affects on the people injured. These affects can extend to medical bills, loss wages, pain and suffering, property damage, emotional distress, and lost opportunities. If you have been physically or emotionally injured, and/or your personal property has been damaged as a result of someone’s negligent actions, we want to help you get a fair recovery. Whatever type of accident you are dealing with, contact our attorneys to set up a consultation.
