Virginia Criminal Defense Attorneys

Every criminal charge is a serious charge. Even a misdemeanor crime on your record can alter your life. Along with potential fines and jail time, employers, schools, professional organizations, and housing complexes often run criminal background checks, and they may bar you from employment, admission, or taking up residence in a new home due to a criminal charge. When you’re arrested, you need representation by someone who understands the importance of your criminal defense. Byler & Sampson, PC is dedicated to protecting the rights of those charged with crimes in the Commonwealth of Virginia. They understand the importance of a good criminal defense, regardless of the charges against you, and make it their mission to ensure your rights are protected at every step of the process.

A Criminal Defense Attorney to Protect Your Rights

You have the right to have an attorney with you from the moment of your arrest, and you should want one. During your arrest and interview with the police, you do not have to speak, but the police want you to. The words you say in those first hours matter, as do the actions of the police. By involving your attorney early, you not only ensure your side of the story is still sharp in your mine, you make sure your rights are protected throughout the process. Your defense attorney knows what you do and don’t have to provide the police, while you may not, and will help make sure you make no early missteps that may come back to haunt you during trial.
