Police use various investigatory techniques to develop leads and find evidence that they intend to use against the accused. You can be investigated for days, months or years in Virginia, depending on the case. As a potential suspect or witness, however, you have rights. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights and take steps that may resolve the investigation without charges ever being filed.
Once the police have arrested a suspect or issued a summons to them, the court process takes over. Litigating a criminal charge can be extremely psychologically, emotionally and financially taxing. Moreover, the outcome of the case could have even more severe consequences. Our attorneys can explain your charge to you, explain what you can expect during the court process, and provide you with guidance on how to obtain the best possible outcome. Our attorneys work closely with you to make sure your voice is heard.
We have an outstanding record of success. See some of our sample case results to learn more.
Judges and juries can make mistakes throughout the course of a case. If you have been convicted for any reason, you may have additional post-conviction remedies available to you. Your options and time to submit an appeal will be limited by the type of case you are trying to appeal. Our attorneys have experience with appeals in misdemeanor and felony cases for adults and juveniles and can help you decide what to do next.
Lee Lopez Law handles a wide range of criminal defense matters, including drug charges, DWI charges and violent crime charges. In each case we research potential issues applicable to your circumstances to help achieve the best outcome possible. We discuss these legal issues with you and help you make decisions regarding the best course of action. Whatever charge you may be facing, we can help.
Traffic-related charges can also have very serious consequences. Reckless driving, hit and run, and other traffic offenses can be punished with jail time, serious fines, and loss of your driver’s license. Our attorneys help with these types of charges as well as those found in other areas of the Code of Virginia. You can see a list of some of the common traffic offenses we help with here.
Misdemeanors are more serious than traffic infractions but less serious than felonies. They can include jail time, fines, and various types of potential post-conviction conditions. Our attorneys has handled many types of misdemeanors, ranging from the least serious types of misdemeanors, such as public intoxication, to some of the most common and serious misdemeanors, such as reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, possession of schedule III and lower substances, possession of marijuana, trespassing, sexual battery, and many others.
Being charged with any felony offense is serious because any felony can include active jail time, lengthy supervised probation requirements, and other consequences. Mr. Lopez has helped clients charged with some of the most serious felony offenses, including murder, aggravated sexual battery, possession of schedule I and II substances, third and subsequent offense driving while intoxicated, and many other offenses.
While the laws of Virginia apply throughout the state, each jurisdiction has its own Commonwealth Attorney’s Office to handle the prosecution of criminal and traffic cases.
