under investigation

Police use various investigatory techniques to develop leads and find evidence that they intend to use against the accused. You can be investigated for days, months, or years in Virginia depending on the case. As a potential suspect or witness, however, you have rights. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights and take steps that may resolve the investigation without charges ever being filed.

Facing a Charge

Once the police have arrested a suspect or issued a summons to them, the court process takes over. Litigating a criminal charge can be extremely psychologically, emotionally, and financially taxing. Moreover, the outcome of the case could have even more severe consequences. Our attorneys can explain your charge to you, explain what you can expect during the court process, and provide you with guidance on how to obtain the best possible outcome. Our attorneys work closely with you to make sure your voice is heard.

Post-Conviction Assistance

Judges and juries can make mistakes throughout the course of a case. If you have been convicted for any reason, you may have additional post-conviction remedies available to you. Your options and time to submit an appeal will be limited by the type of case you are trying to appeal. Our attorneys have experience with appeals in misdemeanor and felony cases for adults and juveniles and can help you decide what to do next.
