UNDERSTANDING Virginia CRIMINAL CHARGES
In Virginia, a person may be charged with either a misdemeanor or felony crime, and it is important to understand the implications of each offense. While a misdemeanor is typically considered to be less serious than a felony charge, the repercussions of an arrest and conviction can still be quite severe.
When you are investigated or arrested for a crime, it helps to be well-informed about your case and your charge(s) in order to make the best decisions regarding your defense. Each case is unique, and a Virginia criminal lawyer is equipped to explain the intricacies of your individual situation and how various defense strategies may affect the outcome of your case.
The Criminal Attorneys at our firm are committed to providing aggressive, skillful defense representation to help protect your rights and work to achieve the best possible outcome under your personal circumstances.
