Virginia Criminal Lawyer

Annandale Criminal Defense Lawyer

Criminal Defense for Everyday People

Sometimes good people are treated badly in the criminal justice system. If you have been charged with a criminal offense in the state or federal courts of Virginia, you want a lawyer to protect your interests. A minor criminal or serious traffic offense can give you a permanent criminal record, ruin your security clearance and do other permanent damage. Do not wait until it is too late.

Reach out to the Annandale office of Lawrence T. Brooke, Attorney at Law. We provide criminal defense for everyday people. If you have never had criminal law concerns before, we will help you through this difficult time. With more than 35 years of legal experience, Fairfax criminal defense lawyer Lawrence T. Brooke has seen firsthand what happens to the accused when they do not build the best possible defense. It matters very little to police and prosecutors that you never did anything wrong before.

Regular people without criminal records often pay the steepest price in our criminal justice system. They do not know what to expect from the process, and therefore they do not prepare properly. Let us give you the representation you deserve.

Traffic Violations

Our firm provides defense for individuals charged with a variety of traffic offenses. From driving with a suspended license to DWI and reckless driving, we work to reduce the charges and minimize the potential consequences, including license sanctions, fines and insurance penalties.

For example, in Fairfax County a prosecutor won’t even talk to you before your traffic case unless you have an attorney. The state handles 270,000 traffic cases a year and prosecutors just don’t have the time. The first question the judge will ask is “How do you plea?” If you say “guilty” the judge can impose the most severe penalty the law allows. Don’t let that happen. You have nothing to lose by calling a lawyer to protect you.

Criminal Law

In addition to handling Virginia traffic violations, we also provide criminal defense for people facing a variety of charges in state and federal courts. From marijuana possession and shoplifting to assault and domestic violence charges, we will help you minimize the potential consequences and do what is best for you and your family.

Personal Injury

Insurance companies are not your friend. They believe a penny saved is a penny earned. They do not care whose fault it was or how badly you were injured. Their job is to make money, not to help you. If you have suffered a serious personal injury in a car accident, slip-and-fall or by an intentional act, we can help you get the medical care you need and financial compensation you deserve. You do not have to go through this difficult time on your own.
