An experienced trial attorney, I have received Martindale Hubbell's highest rating of “AV Preeminent” in the areas of Criminal Law, Litigation, and Family Law and have been named as one of the Top 100 Criminal Defense Attorneys in Virginia by the American Society of Legal Advocates. I have tried cases throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, focusing primarily in Northern Virginia. My experience as a prosecutor has allowed me to build a successful criminal practice, with cases ranging from misdemeanor and traffic matters to serious felonies.
I am also an experienced civil litigator, focusing on divorce, child support, child custody, and visitation matters. I am a recognized authority on law enforcement issues in Virginia, having represented law enforcement in over twenty police shooting cases since 2002. I also serve as General Counsel to the Fraternal Order of Police Fairfax Lodge 77 and as President of the Fairfax Fraternal Order of Police Associates Lodge 77.
In addition, I lecture at Continuing Legal Education Courses and have taught at the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy. I am an active member of Autism Speaks, a national advocacy group, where I sit on the Sponsorship Committee and serve as Chairman of the National Capital Area Autism Speaks 5K.

I endorse Ed Nuttall. He is an effective and tenacious litigator who is a natural in the courtroom. Mr. Nuttall possesses a unique skill in handling his client's cases that commands respect from both the prosecution and the judges. His knowledge of the law has led to success for his clients. I would recommend Mr. Nuttall for a client seeking excellent representation.
