Drug Charges. Our attorneys have years of experience in aggressively defending clients against every type of drug charge in Virginia, including charges of distribution, simple possession, and possession with the intent to distribute. The penalties for these charges vary by drug type, the amount sold or possessed, and whether it is a first or subsequent offense—but in general are quite high. Also, many of these offenses have mandatory minimums, giving judges little discretion on sentencing. Simply put, conviction on drug charges can be devastating. Therefore, it is critical that anyone facing drug charges in Virginia hire an experienced criminal attorney as early as possible in the process.

Traffic & DUI. The maximum punishments for DUI, DWI, reckless driving, and driving on a revoked or suspended license in Virginia are quite harsh. In addition, conviction on these charges could impact one’s career, security clearance and insurance costs. The stakes are too high in these cases for you not to be represented by experienced attorneys. Our lawyers have years of experience in aggressively defending clients charged with DUI, DWI and other traffic law offenses in Northern Virginia.

Sex Crimes. The maximum punishments for sex crimes in Virginia are quite high, and often include mandatory minimum sentences. It is critical that anyone being investigated or charged with a sex crime contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. Our attorneys are widely known across Virginia for their skilled and aggressive defense of clients against sex offense charges.

Other Offenses. Our criminal defense lawyers also handle charges of assault and battery, domestic violence, malicious or unlawful wounding, robbery and other violent crimes, as well as non-violent offenses like larceny and embezzlement.

Federal Criminal Charges. The federal criminal system is harsh, severe and dangerous. These cases require special attention and an aggressive approach. Our attorneys are experienced in defending against every sort of charge in the federal system, including: drug charges, RICO offenses, money laundering, public corruption, violent crimes and white collar offenses. The structure and resources of our firm, combined with the aggressive approach of our attorneys, can lay the groundwork for making the best possible defense against federal criminal charges.
