Areas of Practice

Determined litigators handle felony, misdemeanor and traffic charges

Our four offices provide coverage throughout the state for Virginians seeking qualified criminal defense. Among the cases we handle are:
  • Felonies and misdemeanors — We handle all types of felony and misdemeanor criminal defense litigation including prosecutions for weapons violations, assaults and other alleged misconduct.
  • Drunk driving — If you’ve been accused of driving under the influence, our firm will investigate the circumstances and identify potential defenses even if your test result exceeded the legal intoxication limit.
  • Drug crimes — Penalties associated with drug crimes can be extremely severe and often seem arbitrary. For charges relating to the possession, sale or manufacture of controlled substances, we challenge questionable evidence and seek a positive resolution.
  • Traffic violations — By failing to fight citations for traffic violations, you risk heavy fines, increased insurance premiums, and the loss of your driving privileges. If you’ve been ticketed for a vehicle offense, we’ll advise you of the best way to avoid unjust punishment.
  • Expungements — Under state law, certain arrests can be cleared from your record. If you were accused of a crime and were not convicted, our lawyers can outline the requirements for Virginia expungements.
Regardless of the specific count you face, dealing with the potential consequences of a conviction can seem overwhelming. Our firm simplifies the legal details and makes every effort to bring peace of mind to you and your loved ones as we fight for your rights.
