Vienna Criminal Defense & Traffic Lawyers
Serving You in Criminal Courts in Virginia
Our firm is prepared to handle all traffic and criminal matters, from basic misdemeanors to significant felonies, which can lead to incarceration, hefty fines, long probations, and other court-ordered sanctions.
Our criminal defense philosophy can be illustrated by a quote from John Adams, our second President and founding father.
“The part I took in defense of [the British soldiers in the Boston Massacre]. . .was . . .one of the most gallant, generous, manly, and disinterested actions of my whole life, and one of the best pieces of service I ever rendered my Country. . . As the Evidence was, the jury’s verdict [of not guilty] was exactly right.”
Did you know John Adams defended the soldiers who allegedly murdered five innocent Americans? And did you know that a jury acquitted each and every soldier? If you said no, this is because you’ve only heard one side of the story.
At Sandground, West, Silek, Raminpour & Wright, we believe that no matter what the accuser, police, or prosecutor alleges, there is always another side of the story. We ensure your voice is heard, that your rights are vigorously upheld, and that we pursue the best possible outcome, whether you are charged with severe or petty crimes. We strongly advocate for you from start to finish.
If conviction appears unavoidable, we will be honest with you and strive to work with the Judge or prosecutor to impose the least restrictive sentence possible.
