Quest Law PLLC Accepts All Criminal Cases
There is no doubt that some criminal charges are much more serious than others, but our legal team approaches every case we accept with the same determination to get the best possible outcome. Often, people charged with traffic offenses and misdemeanors don’t take the charges seriously and end up jeopardizing their futures when they could have avoided the worst by hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney. Stephen has represented clients in the following types of cases throughout Midlothian, Richmond, and Virginia:
- Misdemeanors. While it may not sound serious, conviction of a misdemeanor in Virginia could land you in jail for up to a year and cost you $2,500. Examples of misdemeanors include domestic violence, carrying a gun without a permit, possession of drug paraphernalia, petty theft, and public intoxication, among many others. You may think you can handle such charges on your own—or that you don’t need to bother finding a good attorney—but this mistake could cost you.
- Felonies. Any felony charge should be taken seriously. In Virginia, felony convictions can result in anything from a year in jail to life in prison or the death penalty. Crimes such as first-degree murder, arson, drug dealing, burglary, embezzlement, manslaughter, and animal cruelty are considered felonies. If you are facing felony charges, you will need to mount a strong defense with the help of an experienced Midlothian criminal defense attorney.
- Traffic offenses. In Virginia, reckless driving is considered a criminal misdemeanor and a conviction can have a serious effect on your ability to hold a driver’s license, find affordable insurance and, by extension, hold down a job and take care of your family. Don’t ignore serious traffic offenses. Fight them with an experienced attorney by your side.
- DUI. A drunk driving conviction can have serious repercussions, especially if it is not your first DUI. Everyone makes mistakes, and if your mistake involved driving after you had been drinking, you need an attorney with experience fighting DUIs in Virginia. Don’t assume there’s no way out of a DUI. Talk to Quest Law before you give up.
- Juveniles. Juvenile crimes are heard in a different court from adult crimes and should be handled by an attorney with juvenile court experience. If your underage child has been arrested, this is no time for tough love. Instead, it’s time to protect his or her future by hiring Stephen Bloomquest.
- Appeals. Not every criminal attorney handles appeals, but Quest Law PLLC can handle your charge from your arrest through the appeals process. No matter where you are in the criminal process, Stephen will hear your case and discuss your options with you.
If you have been charged with a crime in Midlothian, Richmond or anywhere in Virginia, it’s important to know that you are not alone. When you have Quest Law PLLC on your side, you can rest assured that all of your options will be considered.
