The penalty for felony charges in Virginia ranges from one year of incarceration all the way up to life in prison and/or a substantial fine. Convicted felons also lose their voting rights and their right to possess firearms, and face substantial difficulties in finding employment.
In short, felony charges are extremely serious and the consequences of conviction can be devastating. If you are charged with any felony, it is absolutely imperative that you hire experienced, zealous counsel. In Loudoun County, you should call The Laurel Brigade Law Group.
Combined, the criminal defense attorneys at the Laurel Brigade Law Group have more than 10 decades of experience handling felony charges, and they will work together as a team if necessary to defend your case as vigorously as possible. Our trial attorneys represent the accused in a broad array of serious crimes, including:
- Crimes of violence
- Distribution of controlled substances
- Sexual assault and rape
- Third or more DUI
- Grand larceny
- Credit card theft and fraud
Our first objective in defending your felony charge is always to have charges dismissed. If we see any Constitutional violations that occurred in your case, we will file the appropriate motions and ask the court to suppress the evidence against you, or possibly for dismissal if there has been a due process violation. Our lawyers will look for errors by law enforcement, violations of due process, illegal searches, the possibility of mistaken identity — any approach that casts doubt on the prosecution’s case. In a trial, it is not necessary to prove your innocence — we only must cast a reasonable doubt of your guilt in order to prevail.
Our lawyers know Virginia criminal law and the case law surrounding it, and we have experience with many different strategies to develop the strongest defense possible. However, if the evidence is such that you are convicted of a felony, our lawyers are very familiar with alternative options to incarceration, such as inpatient drug treatment, work release, and other programs specific to Virginia. It is important to act quickly to give your legal team time to evaluate your case and formulate the strongest defense possible.
