Ann Marie Thayer

About me

I practice in Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William, VIenna, Falls Church. Alexandria, Stafford, and Loudoun.   I enjoy helping people who come to me for help. Many people who come to me for help have never been charged before.  So regardless of whether they need help on a traffic, DWI, juvenile or adult, criminal matter, whatever it is they are lookng for someone to guide them through the process, to explain things they may not undertand, to give advice on what defenses there may be, to advise on things they can do to try to help their case, etc.  When someone calls me for a consult, I give them as much info as I can to help them understand what to expect and to help them make a decision as to whether I am the right attorney for them.  I will work as hard as I can to get them the best outcome.
