  • Felonies — The most serious criminal counts demand an accomplished lawyer who can confront and question every witness and piece of evidence brought against you. Whether you’re accused of a sex crime, robbery or even homicide, we can prepare a thorough, effective defense.
  • Misdemeanors — Convictions for these offenses leave you with a criminal record and can result in up to 12 months in jail. Often, there are extenuating circumstances that lead to arrests for crimes such as assault, reckless driving or petty theft. Our lawyers develop a complete case on your behalf for plea negotiations or trial.
  • Traffic violations — When you’re accused of
    breaking traffic laws, you could be facing financial penalties and even a license suspension. HarperWilliams, works on your behalf to fight unsupported allegations.
  • Juvenile charges — We understand the stress and pain families endure when minor children are accused of crimes. However, the Virginia juvenile justice system offers a variety of sentencing options geared toward meaningful assistance rather than punishment. Our attorneys can focus on reaching a workable resolution that helps your child move past their problem.

With our background and years of experience, we are able to identify favorable resolutions that other attorneys might miss. By accurately projecting how a case might play out at trial, we can negotiate from a knowledgeable position if a plea bargain is in a client’s best interest. Where alternatives to incarceration exist, such as treatment or community service, we will press to secure an appropriate form of sentencing.
