Case Results

I have been practicing trial law for nearly a quarter of a century. In that time I have successfully defended hundreds of clients charged with traffic offenses, reckless driving, DUI, and other criminal offenses (see below). Since my practice has concentrated on the greater Richmond area, I have developed strong relationships with prosecutors, judges, and police officers. The world has noticed. I have been honored on numerous occasions by both clients and peers in the legal profession. The following is only a partial list of some of these honors:

  • A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau
  • 10/10 rating on AVVO.com, perhaps the nation’s most prominent legal rating service
  • AVVO Client’s Choice Award in 2014
  • Nationally ranked "Superior DUI Attorney" for 2015
  • Ranked among Virginia’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers by The National Trial Lawyers

Nobody Takes Advantage of My Clients

The Virginia legal system is adversarial by its nature. That means nice guys really do finish last, and you have to fight to win. Don’t let anyone convince you to just "plead guilty and get it over with" without careful consideration of whether this is your best option under the circumstances. Fighting for the rights of my clients is a way of life for me – it’s in my bones. Contact me today, either online, by email ([email protected]), or by phone at 804-355-0016 (office) or 804-814-1489 (cell). My fees are reasonable and affordable.
