Virginia Assault Lawyer

Frequently, Virginia assault charges are the result of a heated disagreement that escalated to physical violence. After an altercation, the victim and perpetrator of the assault are often determined by who told his or her side of the story to police first or who has the most (or fewest) visible physical injuries. If there is a lack of witnesses, investigators are left to determine who is charged with assault based on their own best judgment, which may or may not reveal the true instigator. If you are charged with assault, Thomas Soldan will help ensure that your side of the story is heard in a court of law. Perhaps the charges against you are inflated; perhaps you were acting in self-defense. Whatever the circumstances, your attorney will let your voice be heard.

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

Conviction of any criminal offense can have both immediate and lasting consequences, including fines, incarceration, probation, and other restrictions of your personal liberties. A criminal record can negatively impact your family and personal relationships as well as your educational and employment opportunities. Be proactive in your own defense by retaining an attorney who can handle your case with discretion and a commitment to aggressively defending you against criminal charges.
