Concerned counsel makes your legal defense a high priority
Our VA Beach lawyer understands how distressing the charges against you are. From the moment you call, I make your case a high priority. I meet with you as quickly as possible to offer the reassurance that you have someone in your corner, fighting for you. Throughout the legal process, I stay in close contact so that you are aware of all progress in your case and can take an active role in helping us help you. Everything you say is held in the strictest confidence, so there is no need to feel any shame or discomfort.
Aggressive defense strategies raise reasonable doubt
Your Virginia Beach criminal attorney assertively challenges all aspects of the prosecution's case. I am familiar with forensic evidence, including DNA, as well as the most effective ways to raise doubt about its validity by questioning police procedures for collecting, processing and preserving such evidence.
Often, sex crime charges come down to the credibility of the complaining witness versus the defendant. As your staunch advocate, I cross-examine all witnesses thoroughly and offer rebuttals to their testimony, presenting the events in the best light for you.
Fair and reasonable plea negotiations
There are certain circumstances in which a "not guilty" verdict is so unlikely that it is best to seek a plea settlement. In such cases, I negotiate firmly and decisively to secure the best possible terms. Often, I am successful in arranging for a plea to a lesser offense that minimizes or eliminates jail time. Though such arrangements can be difficult to achieve, I make every effort to arrive at a settlement that is in your interest. However, the final decision is always yours and I never make a move without getting your prior approval.
