I am a Virginia Criminal Defense Attorney with over 20 years experience helping good people all across Virginia who have found themselves in trouble with the police. We handle all types of Criminal and Traffic offenses and I have represented clients accused of everything from simple traffic infractions, to misdemeanor criminal offenses, all the way up to the most serious felony criminal offenses, including Capital Murder.
In addition to building a successful law practice, I have spent many years teaching Virginia law. As an academy Legal Instructor I taught Virginia Criminal Law, Virginia Criminal Procedure, Virginia Rules of Evidence and Constitutional Law to Police Officers, Sheriff's Deputies and MPs for more than a decade, and as a contract attorney for U.S. Law Shield I continue to teach about Constitutional Law and Virginia laws relating to firearms.
I am a Founding Member of the DUI Defense Lawyers Association and General Member of the National College for DUI Defense, national organizations dedicated to raising the quality of DUI / DWI defense by educating lawyers about the many complex issues which arise in DUI / DWI cases.
I have devoted considerable time, money and energy to seeking out and completing extensive, specialized education and training, as well as highly technical certification programs in the field of DUI / DWI defense and it has helped me provide top notch representation to my clients. I am trained on Police RADAR/LIDAR, Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, breath alcohol testing, blood alcohol testing, medical issues which arise in DUI / DWI cases and I am trained as an Operator on several different breath testing machines, including the Intoximeter ECIR II used in Virginia.
I have been able to use this advanced education, specialized training and vast experience to win NOT GUILTY verdicts in some extremely difficult and seemingly unwinnable cases, including a case with a blood test result of 0.29 - more than 3.5 times the legal limit. I have come to be recognized nationwide as an authority on DUI / DWI law in Virginia and I regularly serve as a consultant on Virginia DUI / DWI laws. I have even appeared on tv as a Legal Analyst concerning Virginia DUI / DWI laws.
I have won cases at trial at every level of court in Virginia: Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts, General District Courts and Circuit Courts. In addition, I have won in the Virginia Court of Appeals by having a felony conviction reversed and getting the case dismissed.
I've shared some of my knowledge and insight in a book on DUI/DWI in Virginia called the DUI/DWI Arrest Survival Guide: The Guilt Myth - which I co-authored with Bob Battle. If you would like a FREE copy, all you have to do is visit my website.
Completing certification training breath alcohol machines is great, but I have gone even farther and acquired several of my own breath testing machines, including the Intoxilyzer 5000 and the Intoximeter ECIR which enables me to further familiarize myself with these machines.
I am also a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Virginia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I have been selected and recognized by various organizations and I have successfully represented clients accused of all types of crime, including those listed below:
Alcohol: DUI / DWI, Drunk in Public, Underage Possession of Alcohol, etc.
Drugs: Possession, Manufacturing, Distribution, Possession With Intent to Distribute, etc.
Theft: Grand Larceny, Petit Larceny, Embezzlement, Shoplifting, Credit Card Theft, etc
Fraud: Forgery, Uttering, Obtaining Money by False Pretenses, Writing Bad Checks, etc.

Driving: DUI / DWI, Reckless Driving, Driving Suspended, Hit & Run, Attempting to Elude Police, etc.
As you can see, whatever it is - misdemeanor or felony, my team and I can help.
