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 Marquis 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:

Prosecution chooses to prosecute or dismiss based on whether they believe the case is substantial enough for a conviction. Our lawyers 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. Furthermore, our attorneys know the players, the prosecutors, the Judges and the officers.  We will give you our honest opinion, based on the totality of all those involved in the Judicial process.   We take the protection of your right seriously and treat all clients with respect as we make every effort to minimize the stress of the criminal process.
