I suggest you stick with your attorney's advice at juncture. I believe this case was in the Virginia Lawyer's Weekly - if it is the same case, there are a lot of moving parts going on in your case. At any rate, the attorney who handled the trial and subsequent appeal would be in a much better position to answer your question for you. Good luck.
