  • Fairfax criminal lawyer on Virginia prosecutors' leeway to back out from plea deals. Trial readiness is critical for criminal defense lawyers. As a Fairfax criminal lawyer, I know that trial readiness is the only way to win, to negotiate from a position of strength, and to not get caught with pants down in the event that the criminal defense client changes his or her mind from a plea deal into a trial posture. A deal is a deal, goes the saying. However, under Virginia law, the mere happening of offer and acceptance of a plea offer does not automatically bind the prosecutor to not withdraw from the plea offer before the judge has accepted a criminal defendant's plea of guilty, no contest/ nolo contendere, or Alford....

  • Fairfax criminal lawyer on handling handgun violence and all violence. How do we stop murders if guns are not banned? I do not have a ready answer, but as a Fairfax criminal lawyer do have the below thoughts. Those who own guns should assure they know how to use their weapons as safely as possible, and to assure they do not get into the wrong hands. Guns are not going to get banned, particularly because the Second Amendment will not get repealed, and because gun culture is so entrenched in the United States, going back to the days of the first settlers and their next generations and the wild west....

Witness availability -- on the prosecution side -- always needs to be checked by the defense lawyer as part of advising a criminal or DUIhttps://katzjustice.com/trial-readiness-steers-negotiating/ defendant whether to proceed to trial and how to proceed with settlement/plea negotiations. As a Fairfax DUI lawyer, my ideal is to wait until the trial date to see whether the essential prosecution witnesses have arrived to court or are reliably on call, because sometimes they do not arrive, whether because of not being subpoenaed, miscalendaring, scheduling conflicts, transportation issues, delays, sickness, disinterest, or work or family obligations....

  • Virginia criminal lawyer warns against worsening the criminal justice system in addressing rampant gun violence. Stopping violence must not come at the price of worsening our already unacceptable criminal justice system that overcriminalizes, overarrests, overconvicts, overincarcerates, and oversupervises (through pretrial detention, and often excessive limitations on the liberty of probationers and parolees). As an individual and Virginia criminal lawyer tremendously saddened by domestic and worldwide violence -- including the repeated school murders -- I warn about the generations-long adverse fallout that can come from weakening the Second Amendment and the rest of the Bill of Rights in the effort to reduce violence caused by gun misuse and other means....
