The Importance Of Obtaining Experienced Legal Representation

If you have been charged with or are under investigation for a crime, it is vital that you contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately. If you obtain legal representation early enough, you may even be able to avoid having charges filed altogether. To whatever stage your case has proceeded, however, it is never too late to fight for your rights and freedom. When you face potentially life-altering consequences, you need a lawyer who will explore every possible defense, who will work tirelessly on your behalf and, if a trial becomes necessary, who can zealously represent you before a judge or jury.

Let Our Experience Help With Your Defense

The attorneys at Morrison, Ross and Whelan have the experience and knowledge to help you understand your options and will guide you through the process. We are familiar with all areas of Virginia’s criminal justice system and have experience handling serious cases in federal court.

The right legal representation can mean the difference between a ruined life and a salvaged future if you have been charged with:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Drug possession
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug delivery
  • Drug trafficking
  • Theft crimes
  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • White collar crimes
  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Violent crimes
  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Assault
  • Sex crimes
  • Rape
  • Prostitution
  • Child pornography
  • Internet crimes
  • Domestic violence
  • Federal crimes

Unfortunately, even being innocent does not necessarily protect you from potential penalties when you have been accused of a crime. Consequences can extend beyond those ordered by the court and include damage to your reputation and your personal relationships.
