Manassas Criminal Defense Attorneys
Dedicated to Representing the Criminally Accused
Few experiences in life are as stressful and nerve-wracking as being arrested or charged with a crime. If you are facing criminal charges, you are up against the government and its vast investigate power. You are probably afraid of losing your family, your friends, and, most of all, your freedom.
You need an attorney who can hold their own against the government and prosecuting attorneys. At Ashcraft & Gerel, we offer client-focused, results-driven representation to the criminally accused throughout Manassas and the surrounding areas. Our firm is committed to preparing a strong defense on your behalf.
DUI & Traffic Offenses
Traffic violations are criminal offenses that can have a far-reaching impact on many facets of your life. They can lead to time in jail, probation, hefty fines, and points on your driver’s license – which can ultimately jeopardize your driving privileges.
At Ashcraft & Gerel, we can defend you against traffic offenses including:
- Driving under the influence
- Driving while impaired
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving on a suspended license
- Driving without a license
When we take on a DUI or traffic violation case, we take great care to closely examine every aspect of the incident. In the course of our investigations, we may review the legality of the initial traffic stop, question the legitimacy of any breath, blood, or urine tests that were conducted, and ensure that your rights were not violated by law enforcement at any point.
In addition to fighting the criminal charges you face, we can also address the administrative consequences that accompany most traffic violations. Administrative consequences can include points on your license and the revocation or suspension of your license. Our traffic crime attorneys in Manassas understand that you depend on your driving privileges to make a living and provide for your family. Losing your license can be incredibly devastating; let us fight to protect your driving privileges and carry on your daily life after this incident.
Misdemeanor crimes are certainly less severe than felonies, but they should still be taken very seriously. A misdemeanor conviction can lead to time in jail, major fines, probation, and a negative impact on your ability to get a job, maintain relationships, and move forward in life.
Some examples of common misdemeanors include:
- Drug possession
- Petty theft
- Simple assault
- Certain firearms charges
If you have been arrested for a misdemeanor crime, our criminal defense attorneys in Manassas can help you understand the charges, review the facts of your case, investigate the incident, and aggressively defend you from start to finish.
A felony is the most serious type of crime, which means trials for these crimes are usually heard by a jury. The penalties you could face upon conviction include long prison sentences, probation or parole, and the loss of certain rights, such as your right to vote and your right to own a firearm.
Examples of felony crimes include:
- Drug distribution or trafficking
- Aggravated assault
- Grand theft larceny
- Rape, sexual assault, and other sex crimes
- Murder and homicide
The government and law enforcement take these charges very seriously and work tirelessly to prosecute them to the fullest extent. To check their power, retain Ashcraft & Gerel. Our Manassas criminal defense attorneys are fierce in and out of the courtroom. We are not afraid to fight back and prevent your rights from being violated.
