I practice in Mecklenburg County, Brunswick County, Greensville County, Dinwiddie, Nottoway, Lunenburg, Halifax, Emporia, Boydton, and Lawrenceville. My goal is to achieve the best possible outcome in every case whether a client is accused or reckless driving, speeding, DUI, or any other crime. I have chosen criminal defense as a practice area because of the serious impact accusations can have on a person's life. Many people are surprised to learn that reckless driving is a misdemeanor in Virginia and that traveling 100 m.p.h. can lead to jail time in many jurisdictions. I have represented people accused of murder, malicious wounding, drug distribution and possession, traffic charges, possession of marijuana, and driving on a suspended license. I represent Virginians and those who live out of state but are charged in Virginia. Call as soon as possible to protect your rights.
