Standish Alexander has over 22 years trial experience in Criminal, Traffic, DUI and Personal Injury litigation.

Call now so you can be advised you of your rights if you have been charged with a criminal or a traffic offense or if you have been injured in an automobile accident through no fault of your own.

Even relatively minor traffic offenses can result in increased automobile insurance rates. Many traffic offenses such as Reckless Driving, DUI or operating a motor vehicle with a Suspended License can result in the suspension of your driver’s license and/or jail time and are criminal offenses. It is never advisable to go to court for a serious traffic offense without a lawyer. Your license and freedom are simply too valuable. However, it is often possible to get a reduction or dismissal in many situations.

Call now for a free consultation and/or evaluation of your case. Mr. Alexander has practiced in the courts of Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, Hopewell, Caroline, New Kent, Petersburg, Prince George and Hanover for a number of years and is familiar with many of the judges and prosecutors in those jurisdictions. He is dedicated to zealous and aggressive representation of his clients at the lowest possible cost.
