Whether you are facing state or federal charges, you need to take immediate action to protect yourself. Raising an effective legal defense must begin immediately and is crucial in your outcome. Mike Deering will work swiftly with you to mount a defense from the beginning.

What is Criminal Law

Criminal law, in the substantive sense, is a body of norms, formally promulgated through specified governmental organs, contravention of which warrants the imposition of punishment through a special proceeding maintained in the name of the people or the state. Criminal procedure is formalized official activity that authenticates the fact of commission of a crime and authorizes punitive treatment of the offender. These are at best core definitions; they do not comprehend all legal systems, all stages in the development of a legal system, or all elements within a given legal system.

We Handle the Full Range of Criminal Cases

Drunk Driving

The Commonwealth of Virginia punishes drunk driving (DUI) charges very seriously. Under state law (Virginia Code § 18.2-266), it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC level at or above 0.08. A first-time drunk driving offense is a class 1 misdemeanor that could result in a $2,500 fine, 12 months in jail, and a suspension of your driving privileges.

If you were arrested for a DUI in the Hampton Roads region, you should contact Mike Deering immediately to begin preparations for your defense.

Traffic Violations

Mike Deering handles a full range of traffic violation cases. Many seemingly simple traffic violations carry serious penalties that can be appropriately navigated with counsel. For example, under Virginia Code § 46.2-862, you can be charged with a serious reckless driving offense if you are caught going more than twenty miles an hour over the speed limit.

Drug Crimes

Mike Deering has the skills and experience required to handle complex state and federal drug charges. If you or a loved one was arrested on any type of drug-related offense, you should call immediately. Some of the common examples of drug crimes charges we handle include:

Drug cases can be especially complex. In some cases, there may even be multiple defendants facing similar charges. You need Mike Deering to represent you to protect you.

Assault and Battery

Assault and battery charges are notoriously complex and becoming more common than ever. False charges abound and you will face not only criminal consequences but social consequences as well. Mike Deering can help avoid the common pitfalls associated with these charges.
