Criminal Defense

An experienced Richmond criminal law attorney, I represent people who have been charged with misdemeanors and felonies. I defend men and women in criminal cases involving drugs and drug possession, assault and battery, theft offenses, sex crimes, and probation violations.

Gun Rights Restoration

Among the many consequences of a felony conviction is that you automatically lose your right to possess a firearm and ammunition. If you were adjudicated delinquent of a felony offense as a juvenile at the age of 14 or older and you are under the age of 29, you cannot possess a firearm.

Drug Charges

As part of my criminal defense practice, I handle a wide variety of drug cases from possession to trafficking. I can represent the rights of juveniles, college students and adults who are facing drug charges in state court. Some of the common drugs that are allegedly found on my clients include marijuana, cocaine, meth and prescription drugs.


A criminal arrest record means you will pay for that arrest for the rest of your life. If you have been arrested, but you were never convicted, we may be able to remove this arrest from your criminal history.

Virginia Lawyer Handling Traffic Violations and Speeding Tickets

Have you received a ticket for speeding, reckless driving or other traffic violation? You can fight the traffic ticket, prevent your insurance rates from increasing and prevent points from accumulating on your driving record. Rather than pay your traffic ticket, seek the help you need from an experienced attorney. Much of my criminal defense practice relates to traffic citations and reckless driving. I represent local and out-of-state residents.

Real Estate

I handle a wide range of residential and commercial real estate matters, from eviction proceedings to guiding you through your real property contracts. If you have been victimized by a "foreclosure rescue" scam, I will review your case and help unwind the deal to recover your property. I advise clients at all stages of a residential real estate transaction.
