Criminal Defense

The Law Office has passionate criminal defense attorneys who have the knowledge and expertise to help with almost any criminal matter. They have handled everything from serious and complex felony jury trials to misdemeanor and traffic offenses across Virginia, Washington, D.C., and under the military’s Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

The Law Office’s attorneys practice regularly in Washington, D.C., Superior Court and across Northern Virginia jurisdictions including Arlington County, Alexandria City, Prince William County, Fairfax County, the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA), and other jurisdictions across Virginia.

They know that while the specific charges and allegations may differ, each criminal defense case is important because it affects a client’s life directly and often permanently. From the loss of civil liberties associated with a felony conviction to the immigration consequences resulting from many misdemeanor convictions, each case deserves individualized attention and consideration.

Please contact the office today if you have been charged with a crime or if you believe that you are under investigation in Virginia, Washington, D.C., or in the military.
