Few things are more terrifying than finding yourself entangled in the legal system and not understanding what your rights and options are. Unfortunately, that is the situation many people who are arrested for criminal charges find themselves in.
At VA Criminal Law Group, our criminal defense attorneys work hard to make sure our clients understand exactly what charges they are facing, possible consequences and every option to legally mitigate the sentence. We have over two decades of.. experience defending clients throughout Virginia Beach and Newport News in criminal matters, including:
Domestic violence: We work with clients who have already been arrested and those who worry they may be facing charges for domestic violence. We defend clients from charges related to sexual assault, violation of restraining orders, child abuse and stalking.
Assault and battery: If the police are talking to you about a fight, or if you have already been arrested, it is important to talk with an attorney as soon as possible. We help clients protect their rights and find evidence to build a strong defense.
Drug possession and distribution: We provide an aggressive defense for people facing federal and state charges, including marijuana possession and distribution, cocaine and meth charges, illegal prescription narcotics, cultivation and manufacturing and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Juvenile crimes: Most people realize that kids who make mistakes should not be subjected to a lifetime of punishment. However, without the assistance of an experienced attorney, that can happen. We defend teenagers who are facing drug charges, assault, gang violence, destruction of property and other juvenile crimes.
Underage possession of alcohol: We work with teens who are facing charges for underage consumption or possession of alcohol. We provide the aggressive defense that is needed to protect a teenager's future.
Sex crimes: Our attorneys defend clients who are under investigation or who have been arrested for viewing and downloading child pornography.
If your loved one is being held in jail or prison on criminal charges, it may be necessary to work with an experienced lawyer to get that person out. It can be difficult to convince a judge to release a person on bond, but we can gather the necessary information to present a compelling story.
