It is a mistake to think misdemeanor charges are minor matters. Depending on your offense, you can be imprisoned for up to 12 months, fined and/or lose your privilege to drive in Virginia. Having a conviction on your criminal record may also make it harder to find a job. Conviction of even a relatively minor offense could end up having lifelong repercussions for you.
The criminal defense attorneys at The Laurel Brigade Law Group work to prevent or minimize the negative consequences. Our criminal defense attorneys have handled all types of misdemeanor charges, including but not limited to:
- Possession and distribution of marijuana
- Assault and battery
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Petit larceny
- Reckless/aggressive driving
- Driving with a suspended or revoked license
- Disorderly conduct or drunk in public
- Passing bad checks
- Domestic violence
- Violation of a protective order
- Obstruction of Justice
Sometimes, the prosecution chooses not to prosecute the charge because it realizes in advance of trial that its case is too insubstantial to acquire a conviction. If this does not happen, however, 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.
You will find that we treat your rights with respect, and that we make every effort to minimize the stress of the criminal process.
