Richmond Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer

Experienced Attorney Defending People from Misdemeanor Charges in Virginia

When you've been accused of a misdemeanor, you'll need the help of an experienced attorney on your side. Misdemeanor charges are far worse than the prosecutor would have you believe. People who are convicted of misdemeanors may end up serving a jail sentence, and paying heavy fines, but they also may find that their employment opportunities dry up, their housing options dwindle, and their ability to live a full life diminishes.

Misdemeanor penalties in Virginia are as follows:

  • Class 4 Misdemeanor: up to a $250 fine
  • Class 3 Misdemeanor: up to a $500 fine
  • Class 2 Misdemeanor: up to 6 months in jail and as much as a $1,000 fine
  • Class 1 Misdemeanor: up to 12 months in jail and as much as a $2,500 fine
