  • Felonies & Misdemeanors.  No matter what type of criminal defense charge you are facing, the most important thing is to stop talking to anyone. Our attorneys have the deep insight to help you.
  • Sex crimes. In Virginia, the sentences for sex crimes can be extremely long, depending on the type of offense, the age and other facts about the victim. You definitely need highly experienced attorneys to help you.
  • Drug crimes. Manufacturing, selling, distributing, and possessing drugs are all criminal acts in Virginia. The fines for a drug offense can be steep, and you could be facing up to 10 years in prison. If you are charged, your punishment is based largely on the type of drug involved: the more addictive the drug, the harsher your sentence.
  • Murder. Getting convicted of murder can destroy your life. You will be facing many years, if not life, in prison. In Virginia, you may even face the death penalty for a capital murder (one that is willful, deliberate and premeditated). First- and second-degree murders also hold serious charges.
  • DUI. One of the most serious traffic offenses is a DUI. If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher, you can be charged with a DUI. The charges for a DUI include license suspension or revocation, major fines or even jail time. A knowledgeable traffic violations attorney in Charlottesville can help you get these charges reduced or dropped.
  • Traffic. When should you fight a traffic ticket?  There are significant pros and cons about taking your case to court or just paying the ticket. Our attorneys can help you with that decision.
