  • Virginia criminal lawyer on blunting prosecutors' continuance motions. Turning prosecution continuance motions into criminal defense victories needs to be pursued fully by the defense. In this second and final part of a two-part article (see part one here) I point out that a prosecution continuance motion can set criminal defendants and their supporters on edge, and even irritate the criminal defense lawyer at times. As a Virginia criminal lawyer, I know that the best way to approach a prosecution continuance motion to obtain witnesses is to coolly and persuasively suggest to the judge factors to consider in denying the continuance motion, including:...

  • Fairfax criminal lawyer on obtaining victories by any lawful and ethical means necessary. Drawing dismissals of prosecutions -- rather than suffering the granting of prosecution continuance motions -- is an art, as is so much of what is needed to obtain victory in court.

  • Fairfax criminal lawyer warns against lying in and out of court - Perjury convictions must be avoided. Perjury convictions are worse than suspended driving convictions. One would think that would be common sense. However, if their perjury convictions are correct, clearly Patricia Gerald and Tarsha Gerald gaffed in lying at their suspended driving trials only to be ultimately convicted both of perjury and repeat suspended driving....
