About Our Firm

Our Mission

Our mission is to take a very personal approach to all our cases, taking the time to get to know our clients as people. As we do so, we will make sure you get answers to your questions about the criminal defense process. While winning at trial is often a first priority, we will help you look at all of your options and answer any questions you may have as Mr. Murphy builds the best possible defense for you. He also understands that every case is different, and for some of our clients, the best results can be found by negotiating a fair settlement or by reaching a plea agreement. Either way, we prepare so that you’re prepared.

Mr. Murphy’s criminal defense practice extends to felonies and misdemeanors in courts throughout Virginia. He also provides defense for juvenile crimes. If you face any type of criminal charge, he is ready to fight for you. Mr. Murphy also handles pre-arrest representation and can make arrangements to visit someone in jail.

For most people facing criminal charges in Virginia courts, the top priorities include avoiding jail time and minimizing the impact of potential consequences, i.e. fines, loss of driver’s license, etc. Mr. Murphy will help you explore all your options, including the possibility of receiving a suspended sentence, thereby avoiding going to jail.
