The prosecution has attorneys acting in their best interests. Why shouldn’t you? We fight for our clients using every resource the law allows to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients and consider guilty pleas only when they are in their best interest. We have earned the respect of judges, prosecutors and law enforcement officers in Virginia as skilled attorneys who know how to both effectively defend criminal, DUI & reckless driving traffic cases, and who are not afraid to challenge the evidence in tough cases.

Our law firm concentrates its practice in the area of criminal law, which includes the more specialized areas of DUI & traffic law. Criminal trials are a very complicated and highly specialized  area of the law. Do not place your trust in a law firm that either juggles many areas of law or simply does not possess the necessary experience. A Virginia criminal conviction is permanent and it could forever negatively affect your future. Our attorneys dedicate their careers to the practice of criminal law and are also members of some of the most prestigious criminal law organizations in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Country. We firmly believe that active membership and leadership in organizations such as the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the National College for DUI Defense and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, to name a few, make us better advocates for our clients.
