One Of Virginia's Top Defense Attorneys

We are the criminal defense firm of Robert F. Rider, PLC. Our firm brings nearly 50 years of experience to criminal law, and we are confident that we can help you protect your rights.

Excellent Criminal Defense

Getting convicted of a crime in Virginia has serious consequences, potentially including a long prison sentence. Contact us as soon as possible if you or a family member has been charged a crime. We handle all criminal matters at the state and federal levels. Our cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Drug possession, trafficking and other offenses
  • White collar crime
  • Domestic assault and other violent crime
  • Expungements

Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to get your charges reduced or dropped entirely, removing the chances of you going to jail.

Traffic Violations Defense

People who live outside of Virginia may not realize that speeding is a misdemeanor here. That means you could face much more serious penalties than a ticket if you are pulled over. Even jail time is a possibility. Our lawyer aggressively represents out-of-state clients and people in the Roanoke area in all traffic violation matters, such as:

  • Speeding
  • DUI
  • Driving without a valid license.

Restoring Gun Rights In Virginia

If you have felony conviction on your record, you are prohibited from owning a firearm — even if the conviction is many years old and you have not gotten into trouble since. Fortunately, you may be able to get your rights restored. We have successfully helped hundreds of clients through the process of restoring their Second Amendment and other rights.
