Successful Defense for Hundreds of Clients Facing a Variety of Charges
- Driving Under the Influence
- A DUI charge can be more or less serious depending upon the degree of alleged impairment, prior convictions, and the age of the driver. A first offense is a misdemeanor, but can bring stiff penalties, including loss of your license for a year. The third conviction in five years is a felony with mandatory prison time and license revocation.
- Drug Charges
- Conviction classifications and penalties for drug charges vary greatly, but most drug crimes are harshly penalized. Possession of medicinal marijuana is legal, but the parameters are stringent. Most charges of sale and distribution are felonies.
- Firearms and Weapons Offenses
- Virginia laws specify who can purchase, possess, and carry a firearm, and in what location a gun can be legally discharged. Discharge of a weapon in an occupied building or school is a felony, as is any use of a weapon in the course of a crime.
- Assault and Battery
- Assault and battery is usually a misdemeanor, and often occurs in domestic violence cases. Assault and battery can be a felony charge if, for example, a victim was allegedly selected because of race, religious conviction, color, or national origin.
- Other Crimes
- Our firm assists clients accused of the most serious crimes – armed robbery, rape, and murder – as well as minor offenses, such as traffic offenses, underage drinking, and shoplifting.
