Criminal Defense

When you are accused of a criminal act in Virginia, the prosecution is going to work diligently to make sure you pay for a crime that you may or may not have committed.  Innocent people sometimes go to jail because they did not have a strong enough defense.  McGlone Law Firm, P.C. defends clients in Fairfax County and has the experience necessary to win tough cases.  Contact Paul McGlone at (703) 273-2750 or toll-free at (888) 273-2750 if you or someone you know has been arrested and faces misdemeanor or felony charges in Virginia.

In 2007, almost 200,000 Virginia criminal cases were commenced in the courts statewide.  Fairfax County is considered to have one of the busiest prosecutor's offices in the country.  With so many cases each year, it is no surprise that defendants are encouraged to make a quick plea.  With that volume of cases, there also comes a great volume of experience for all of the assistant prosecutors in Fairfax.   Therefore, it is very important to have an experienced Fairfax criminal defense attorney on your side. 

As a Virginia criminal defendant, you have the right to a fair trial and legal representation.  If you are found guilty of a crime, you could face serious consequences that will follow you for the rest of your life.  An individual who is convicted of a Virginia crime may be subject to fines and incarceration, and in some cases, loss of driving privileges and forfeiture of assets.  A criminal record can affect future employment and earnings.  With the help of an experienced Fairfax County criminal defense lawyer, you could avoid the repercussions of a criminal conviction.

There are many factors involved in the criminal process and it is common for mistakes to be made.  Errors often occur during the arrest and there are frequently flaws in the prosecution's case.  You need an experienced criminal defense attorney to investigate and review all search and seizure issues in the case.  Paul McGlone, a knowledgeable Fairfax County criminal defense lawyer, will thoroughly analyze your case and the evidence against you.  He will be able to spot mistakes and weaknesses in your case and use the information to help build a solid defense.  Felony charges may be reduced or even dropped.

McGlone Law Firm, P.C. is located in Fairfax, Virginia and accepts various types of felony cases including the following charges:

  • Larceny
  • Pornography
  • Murder and Manslaughter
  • Reckless Homicide

For the past 20 years, Paul McGlone has only represented defendants.  Mr. McGlone is proud of the fact that he is NOT a former prosecutor.  There are dozens of former prosecutors out in private practice.   They all have years of experience working with police officers and they often have the best luck in making a deal for folks who want to become confidential informants for the state in exchange for a favorable result in a criminal case.   However, all of those former prosecutors also spent years automatically believing everything that came in from their police officers.   A good defense attorney will automatically question every piece of evidence offered by the police, especially if their client gives a different version of the facts. 

McGlone Law Firm, P.C. presently accepts new clients only with cases in Fairfax County and this focus enables us to have a thorough understanding of how judges and the prosecution here handle these cases.  If you want a criminal defense attorney who knows what it takes to win a case in Fairfax County, then you need to contact Paul McGlone.  Call (703) 273-2750 or toll-free at (888) 273-2750 for advice regarding your case.
