Have You Been Accused Of Committing A Violent Crime? A Lawyer Can Help.

If you have been accused of a violent crime, it's important to speak with a lawyer to ensure you are treated fairly by the authorities. Oftentimes, violent crimes like murder, rape and domestic violence garner significant attention in the media, and the authorities can overzealously pursue a conviction. Even if the charges are unsubstantiated and dismissed, your personal and professional reputation can suffer in your local community.

I am John A. March, and as your attorney I will stand up for you, attempt to limit exposure and fight to mitigate the consequences of your arrest.

A Local Lawyer With The Experience And Resources To Defend Your Rights

When you reach out to me after an arrest, my goal is to protect you from the authorities — as well as yourself. In many cases, the authorities will convince the accused to offer self-incriminating statements. I will step in and deal with the authorities on your behalf, offer counsel regarding how to proceed and outline a strategy to protect your rights.

By carrying out an independent investigation, I will dig deeply into the evidence, gather testimony and build the strongest possible defense against the following:

  • Murder and non-negligent manslaughter
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Illegal weapon possession
  • Terroristic threats
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping (abduction)
  • Rape
  • Carjacking

Violent crimes are not always as straightforward as the authorities cast them to be. For example, disputes between spouses can lead to one party calling the police. In most cases, even if the spouse who made the complaint recants, his or her partner is likely going to be arrested. Furthermore, if you acted in self-defense against another person's threats of violence, your actions may be justified and you could be exonerated.

I have been representing clients in Richmond and throughout Virginia against tough criminal charges for more than 17 years. I have defended clients facing everything from federal criminal drug charges to murder accusations. Regardless of the severity or complexity of your case, I will surround you with the counsel and legal protections necessary to defend your rights, reputation and long-term interests.
