DISCLAIMER – EACH CASE IS UNIQUE AND CASE RESULTS DEPEND ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL SITUATION. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE UNDERTAKEN BY THE LAWYER.

Below we feature a sampling of case results for November and December of 2020. We avoided convictions for felony hit and run, driving under the influence (DUI), reckless driving by speed, possession of marijuana, failure to appear in court, no operator’s license, and more. Dismissals occurred in cities such as Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Northampton, Accomack, Newport News, Hampton and Suffolk. 

Notable cases:

  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI’s) avoided on November 30 (Hampton General District Court) and December 2 (Virginia Beach General District Court).
