When a person in Virginia is charged with a crime, it can change the trajectory of their life in a major way. Their very freedom is at stake, their rights may have been violated and their reputation and livelihood may be hanging on by a thread, all depending on whether they are found “guilty” or “not guilty.” It is at times like this that it is important for a person to have legal assistance, to help see them through the criminal trial process and advocate for their rights.
An attorney can perform a full investigation of their client’s case, so that a strong and persuasive defense strategy can be formed. An attorney can also determine whether their client’s rights against unlawful search and seizure have been violated. In addition, an attorney can call into question whether the evidence proffered by the prosecution is valid. An attorney can also determine whether their client was the victim of entrapment or whether their client was coerced into confessing to a crime they did not commit.
