Criminal Law

  

If  you or someone you know find yourself facing criminal prosecution here  in the Virginia criminal justice system, there are many benefits to  obtaining a qualified criminal defense lawyer like me.  For a conviction  on a criminal misdemeanor charge, you could receive up to one year jail  sentence and a maximum fine of up to $2,500.  For a conviction on a  felony charge, you could receive a sentence of many years in a Virginia  penitentiary and significant fines.


  • Are you or a loved one charged with a either a felony or misdemeanor offense that could result in jail time?
  • Are  you or a loved one in jail or being sent to jail and needs bond so that  you can keep your freedom or your job while awaiting trial?
  • Do  you have trouble understanding the difference between an Arraignment, a  Preliminary Hearing, Motions, Trial, and other legal terms during the  court process?
  • Do you want a lawyer who  has worked extensively with the Commonwealth Attorney's office to  negotiate on your behalf in order to gain a predictable outcome?
  • Do you want an experienced trial lawyer to handle your case professionally before a judge or jury?
  • Do you want that professional to handle your case without paying an "arm and a leg" for those services?

 An experienced  criminal attorney can make the outcome of your criminal case  considerably more favorable.  Because the stakes are so high, I can be a  formidable advocate for you in your criminal case in court.
