Call for your Action Plan - Loudoun / Leesburg Criminal Defense Attorney

Loudoun County, Virginia, borders on Fairfax County, where Virginia criminal lawyer Jon Katz is headquartered. Jon has been defending clients in the courthouse in Leesburg, Loudoun County, Virginia, since 1999, for criminal and DUI cases.

Loudoun County's courthouse is a busy one

Loudoun County spans the Dulles International Airport, developed business and residential areas, and farm country. The Loudoun/ Leesburg courthouse is always busy.

Unfortunately, greeting visitors to the courthouse grounds is a confederate soldier statue with rifle in hand. That is the wrong message for jurors, and is barely offset by a sidewalk plaque paying tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. (UPDATE: The confederate soldier statue was removed on July 21, 2020.)

The Loudoun County courthouse, in Leesburg at 18 E. Market Street, has four Circuit Court judges, four General District Court judges, and two Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court judges.

Do not expect to find jurors biased against police or prosecutors in this county

Loudoun County is in Northern Virginia and is three counties away from Washington, D.C. The jury pool should be expected to generally to be pro-police, without initial anti-prosecutorial biases.

In the county's General District Court, hearings must be set well in advance of the requested court date, and court files must be requested well in advance for review. Fortunately, the court clerk accepts faxes from lawyers to schedule court dates and to request court files for review.

Typically, General District Court discovery can be obtained well in advance of trial from the prosecutor's office. For such cases, the prosecutor's office typically provides a copy of portions of the police reports that the prosecutor believes must be disclosed under Virginia Supreme Court Rule 7C:5 and makes incident videos available for review at the Commonwealth's Attorney's Office.

Often the first trial date can be continued on that date in General District Court. However, it is best to go to any trial date with a lawyer.

Non-lawyer visitors to the county courthouse are barred from bringing cellphones that have cameras. Courthouse visitors may leave their cellphones in their cars or in the small lockers found in the courthouse before entering the security line.

Plentiful courthouse parking is found at nearby surface and covered parking lots.

  • He was able to get my case completely dismissed

    Jon always returned my emails quickly. He did not charge a high fee, and he was able to get my case completely dismissed. My family owes him so much. I strongly recommend this attorney.
