Handling Your Criminal Defense in Chesapeake, Virginia

Businessman wearing handcuffs — Litigation Law Firm in Chesapeake, VA
There are 2 criminal courts: the General District Court and the Circuit Court. The General District Courts hear misdemeanor cases and preliminary hearings for felony matters. Misdemeanor cases could involve jail time up to 12 months and/or a fine up to $2,500. Circuit Courts hear felony cases and appealed misdemeanor cases.

Contact a Highly Experienced Attorney as Soon as Possible

It is very important to involve your attorney as soon as possible in misdemeanor cases. Some Commonwealth Attorney's offices do not plea bargain appealed misdemeanor cases in Circuit Court. Therefore, any plea negotiation of misdemeanors must be accomplished in the General District Court.

If you have a criminal charge in the Circuit Court, you must have a highly experienced criminal trial attorney by your side immediately. Your freedom will depend on it. Should you or a member of your family be arrested, contact us immediately. Do not talk to the police. Even if you think you don't need an attorney, call us. Your first consultation is FREE.
