Fredericksburg Criminal, Immigration & Divorce Lawyers
The Fredericksburg divorce, immigration and criminal lawyers at Livesay & Myers represent clients in Fredericksburg, King George, Spotsylvania, Stafford and all across Northern Virginia.
Courts in the Fredericksburg area differ significantly from those in the larger jurisdictions to the north. The practices, procedures and expectations of courts in these jurisdictions are not always written down somewhere in a book. Many of them are learned only through years of experience in the courts and before certain judges. The criminal and divorce lawyers at Livesay & Myers practice in these courts every day—they know the local judges and the local system.
Fredericksburg Criminal Lawyers
The Fredericksburg area is no place to go it alone if you are charged with a crime. In addition to jail time, fines and other penalties set by state law, conviction on criminal charges in Virginia can impact one’s career, security clearance and insurance costs. Courts in Fredericksburg and surrounding jurisdictions are particularly aggressive in prosecuting and punishing most crimes; Stafford County, in fact, is known as one of the harshest jurisdictions in Virginia.
Partner Ghislaine Storr Burks is our lead Fredericksburg criminal lawyer.
