Standing Up For Your Rights
From federal white collar crimes to public intoxication charges, Spicer, Olin & Associates, P.C., provides insightful, aggressive defense for those accused of — and being investigated for — crimes in Virginia courts. We are dedicated to defending the rights of the accused and take pride in preventing, reducing or dismissing the charges our clients are facing. Our criminal law defense team has over 30 years of experience.
At the federal level, we provide a thorough and proactive defense of our clients. At times, federal investigations can last years while the prosecution is gathering evidence. In many cases the evidence against our clients can seem overwhelming. However, Spicer, Olin & Associates, P.C., prides itself on finding the holes in the U.S. attorney’s arguments and defending our clients vigorously against federal offenses with potentially serious consequences.
At the state level, we represent clients charged with felonies and misdemeanors in Virginia. In circuit court, we have successfully defended clients charged with grand larceny, abduction, embezzlement, driving under the influence, distribution of drugs, possession of Schedule I or II drugs, rape, manslaughter and other felony crimes. In general district court, we routinely handle criminal law cases such as DUI, DWI, possession of Schedule III and IV drugs, possession of marijuana, drunk in public, underage possession of alcohol, petit larceny, shoplifting and many others. We also handle traffic cases in general district court, including speeding tickets and reckless driving charges.
Our Approach To Criminal Law
Our approach to criminal law is to prepare a defense first and foremost. Spicer, Olin & Associates, P.C., strives to aggressively defeat any charge brought against our clients. This preparation often leads to dismissals or reductions in the charges. We also try to reduce the effects of any charge on our clients’ futures, and provide expungement services to those clients who are eligible. Much of our criminal defense team represents only retained clients, focusing deeply on each case with the attention it deserves.
