Combating hacking by the government

The use of hacking by federal law enforcement agents to gather evidence has been increasing. However, attorneys who practice criminal defense law in Virginia and the rest of the country now have strategies for challenging the surveillance technique used to obtain the evidence and to make the evidence inadmissible in court.

Imbalanced sentencing based on education worth watching for

We have all heard the chant, "Be cool, stay in school." It's a worthy objective as part of the goal to improve graduation rates whether it's here in Virginia or anywhere else in the country.

Some stay in school advocates also suggest a diploma may expand access to quality health care.

However, the man will undoubtedly want to focus on his particular charges and work on his own criminal defense.

Know your rights during a traffic stop

Additionally, alarming statistics have come to light related to racial disparities and specifically the disproportionate number of traffic stops and violations involving African-American drivers.

Virginia criminal defense options may interest accused parties

Though multiple individuals may be taken into custody for being suspected in the same alleged crime, each party may benefit from considering his or her case on an individual basis. Therefore, exploring various criminal defense options may help each person determine the manner in which he or she feels most comfortable moving forward. Additionally, seeking assistance may also be worth considering.

Virginia's Sex Offender Registry Laws

While all criminal charges are serious and carry negative consequences, those related to crimes of a sexual nature are especially severe. All 50 states have adopted what are known as sex offender registry laws. Virginia's sex offender registry laws are among the most punitive in the nation.

Virginia Criminal defense: DUI, Felony Child Neglect charges

The complexities that typically come along with facing criminal charges are intimidating and confusing. Those accused may wonder whether they will make the best legal choices when preparing to face the formal accusations in court. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help navigate the system in pursuit of a favorable result.

Virginia couple may consider criminal defense options

When facing criminal charges, there are various options that individuals should consider. For some, creating and presenting a criminal defense may be an avenue they can explore more closely. However, each individual should take time to determine which options may be best suited to his or her particular circumstances. A couple in Virginia are likely taking such action after recently being taken into custody. 

Will a DUI Affect my Security Clearance?

These days, the dire ramifications of a DUI are fairly obvious to most people. However, if you are a service member, a federal employee or work for a government contractor, a DUI conviction can have added consequences that may have more of an impact than you realize. And in the Northern Virginia and D.C. area, this issue can cause problems for many government employees when facing DUI charges.
