What Sets Us Apart

Robert has practiced law in Virginia since 1970. In 1979, he went into private practice focusing on criminal defense. As one of the most seasoned lawyers in the Commonwealth, he knows when it is time to aggressively pursue a trial verdict, and when compromise is the best course. He enjoys going to trial and always gives you honest, time-tested advice to help you make the tough decisions.

Why You Need A Defense Attorney's Help

If you are caught up in the criminal justice system, the deck is stacked against you. The police and prosecution have awesome powers and resources to build a case against you. Our job is to tilt the scales back in your favor to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive a fair trial.

With our assistance, you have a much greater chance of getting the charges reduced from felony to misdemeanor level, taking away the possibility of a long prison sentence. In addition, we regularly go to trial and obtain not guilty verdicts.
