Represents People Charged with Violent Crimes

Aggressive Defense in General District and Circuit Court | Defending People Charged with Arson, Malicious Wounding, Robbery and Murder

Are you charged with a violent crime in Norfolk, Newport News, Hampton, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth or another city in Hampton Roads? In Virginia, violent crimes are the most serious criminal offenses and carry the most severe punishments. While some violent crimes carry a short jail or penitentiary sentence if convicted, others mandate decades or even life in prison. As a result, if you are charged with a violent crime, you need to be aware of the complicated nature of these prosecutions and the many ways in which you will need to defend yourself. Unlike some criminal offenses where your risk of incarceration is lower, you should not attempt to defend yourself without an experienced attorney. 

Attorney Dorsk has handled and or tried Federal Capital Murder and 1st and 2nd Degree State Murder charges with successful outcomes for his clients. Attorney Dorsk handled the following murder jury trial in Norfolk and successfully achieved an acquittal (or not guilty verdict) on all charges:  (Two Norfolk Defendants Freed After Double Murder Trial)
