Published Opinion By Virginia Supreme Court In Livesay & Myers Appeal

Posted on February 3rd, 2012, by James Livesay in Criminal Defense. 1 Comment

The Supreme Court of Virginia has issued a published opinion in the appeal by attorney Ghislaine Storr Burks of a case involving a North Carolina bail bondsman convicted of Attempted Abduction and Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony in Virginia.

Note: less than two percent of cases filed with the Virginia Supreme Court result in the petition for appeal being granted.

Congratulations to Ms. Burks for fighting this case all the way to the Virginia Supreme Court. This author notes the comment by one of the Supreme Court Justices during oral argument that Ms. Burks’ brief was very well written.

Ms. Storr Burks is a partner and the lead criminal defense attorney at Livesay & Myers, P.C.
