FIND A GREAT VIRGINIA CRIMINAL LAWYER AT BRADSHAW O’CONNOR
Facing prosecution for a criminal offense can be a harrowing experience for anyone. Penalties can include substantial fines, the seizure of property, and even periods of incarceration. Moreover, having a criminal record can have far-reaching social implications, to include diminished educational, employment, and even residential prospects. A good, experienced Virginia criminal lawyer can make all the difference.
Considering the potential consequences of conviction, it is critical for those confronted with such charges to have a great Virginia criminal lawyer available at the earliest juncture. This is particularly true, as police routinely interrogate individuals before they have a chance to consult with an expert familiar with their constitutional and statutory rights. Failure to timely secure the assistance of an experienced lawyer could result in the violation of your rights. It can also result in a criminal conviction which otherwise could have been reduced or dismissed. Moreover, even if one’s charges are dismissed or withdrawn by the prosecutor, a record of the charge will remain without further action. Petitioning the court for an expungement is necessary to ensure that people conducting background checks cannot use a mere accusation as a basis for discrimination.
