Being charged with a crime is not the time to take matters into your own hands - work with a former Virginia prosecutor who has handled thousands of cases over her career. 

Felony Defense

If charged with a felony, you face a potential prison sentence and sometimes an additional fine. Common offenses include grand larceny, abduction, and drug distribution.

Misdemeanor Defense

If charged with a misdemeanor, you face a potential jail sentence of up to twelve months and possibly an additional fine. Common offenses include domestic assault, driving while intoxicated (DUI), and reckless driving. 

Juvenile Defense

Children accused of committing crimes face unique challenges. Due to their age, the juvenile justice system is focused on being rehabilitative rather than punitive. Common offenses include assault, shoplifting, and underage alcohol possession. 


If you were acquitted or if your charge was otherwise dismissed, you may be eligible to have the charged expunged from your criminal history. The presence of a criminal charge on a background check may prevent you from obtaining a new job or new housing. As such, it is key to determine if you qualify to have your record expunged. 

Bail Hearings

How does someone get released on bail? What does a judge have to consider? Virginia Code Section 19.2-120 outlines admission to bail.

Mandatory Minimum Sentences

There are a number of mandatory minimum sentences set forth in the Virginia Code. If you have been charged with a crime, it is important that you consult with an attorney to determine if you are facing a mandatory sentence.
