A Conviction For A Violent Crime Will Change Your Life Immediately
There’s no sugar-coating it: Being convicted of assault, rape or murder will have an enormous impact on your life. You could face jail or prison time. Your relationship with your family may change, and you could lose custody of your children. Finding a good job also can be difficult after a felony conviction.

I Have The Experience And Knowledge To Represent You In The Most Severe Criminal Cases
Assault: I handle cases involving bar fights, street fights, domestic violence, battery and more. A conviction for a simple assault charge can come with penalties of up to a year in jail and fines up to $2,500. More serious charges such as aggravated malicious wounding can send you to prison for up to 20 years. Regardless of the charges you face, a conviction can cost you money, jail or prison time and leave you with a permanent criminal record.
Rape: Falling under the broad term “criminal sexual assault,” rape charges are extremely serious. Whether the alleged crime involved an adult or a minor, you could be facing a lengthy prison sentence. Conviction of a sex crime also means that you will have to be on the sex offender register locally and nationally. Your reputation will never be the same, and you will have trouble getting certain jobs and possibly housing, too.
Murder: Under § 18.2-30. of Virginia law, “any person who commits aggravated murder, murder of the first degree, murder of the second degree, voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter, is guilty of a felony.” If you are convicted of any of these offenses, you will receive a prison sentence that can put you away for years or decades. I have the experience to handle these complex cases and the courtroom skills necessary to protect your rights if the case goes to trial.
