Criminal Lawyers In Fairfax, Fredericksburg, Manassas, VA
From offices in Fairfax, Manassas and Fredericksburg, Virginia, the criminal lawyers at Livesay & Myers represent clients across Northern Virginia.
Our criminal attorneys are experienced in defending clients against every type of criminal charge in Virginia, from serious felonies to misdemeanors. We handle charges of assault and battery and other violent crimes, as well as non-violent offenses like larceny and embezzlement. Each of our criminal attorneys have expertise in defending against drug charges. We also have years of experience handling DUI, DWI and traffic cases. Finally, we are widely known for our defense in sex crimes cases throughout Northern Virginia.
Our criminal attorneys follow one core principle in defending our clients at trial: hard work wins cases. We believe the building block for success in every trial is rigorous preparation. Our goal is to give every client the best possible defense against whatever charges they are facing– through strenuous preparation, careful planning, and aggressive pursuit of every possible avenue of defense. Our attorneys are no strangers to the courtroom, and are more than willing to try any case on behalf of our clients.
We therefore prepare for every case as if it will go to trial. However, for clients in some cases a plea-bargain with favorable terms may offer an attractive alternative to risking a trial. In those situations, our criminal lawyers will negotiate aggressively on your behalf to extract the best possible deal from the prosecutors. However, if an attractive plea-bargain is not offered, we are ready and willing to defend you in court.
When your case does go to trial, the size and resources of our firm allow us to offer a comprehensive, aggressive defense. Each of our criminal attorneys practice exclusively criminal defense, and are supported by a team of paralegals and one law clerk (a law school graduate). We also have a network of private investigators and forensic experts at our disposal.
