Criminal Defense

As a criminal defense attorney in the City of Norfolk, I have handled hundreds of cases involving violence, I understand how critical your job and/or your security clearance are to your livelihood and your family. If you are convicted of Malicious Wounding or even simple assault, you are facing not only significant jail time and a substantial fine; but you will also receive a permanent criminal record with the FBI and Homeland Security and you could potentially lose your job, your security clearance, future employment opportunities and your future! Malicious Wounding is a growing problem in Virginia. If you have been charged with Malicious Wounding, make your first call count! Hiring an experienced attorney can help lessen the charges and possibly keep you out of jail. In order for the Commonwealth of Virginia to prove Malicious Wounding, they must prove: 1. That you wounded or caused bodily injury, by any means, to a person; and 2. That such wounding or bodily injury was with the intent to maim, disfigure, disable or kill; and 3. That the act was done with malice. If you are found guilty of Malicious Wounding, the punishment can be very severe. Malicious Wounding is a CLASS 3 FELONY, which can result in you being sentenced anywhere from 5 years in jail up to 20 years in jail and a fine of up to $100,000, or BOTH!
