Got a court date coming up for a serious criminal or minor traffic matter? I can help. Please callExperienced criminal trial attorney and former prosecutor. Let's meet for a free consultation.
I returned to private practice in January 2012. The 7 prior years I was in charge of the Hampton Public Defender Office where I supervised 13 other defense attrorneys. Prior to starting the Public Defender's Office I worked for 11+ years as a Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney in Hampton prosecuting a wide range of cases from the DWIs to serious felony cases, including murder cases. It is my hope that my experience in evaluating cases from the perspective of a prosecutor and a defense attorney enables me to give advice to my clients so as to achieve the best possible results. The firm, Gochenour [Go-ken-our] Law Firm, plc. does more than just criminal law and traffic matters, so people can come in for a free initial consultation for any legal issue. If we can't assist, we can probably point you in the right direction.
