If you are charged with a crime in Hampton Roads, including the cities of Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, or Portsmouth, you need an attorney. The police departments in these cities are well trained and understand how to build a case. The prosecutors, known as Commonwealth’s Attorneys, are very skilled and in most cities they will fight for a conviction. You need to have skilled representation to combat these two groups.
At The Law Office of Kevin R. Pettrey, PLC, we have defended individuals charged with a wide variety of crimes. We have handled traffic offenses such as speeding tickets, reckless driving, or driving on a suspended license, DUI and/or refusal, as well as serious drug charges such as possession with intent to distribute (PWID) marijuana, cocaine, and other drugs, violent offenses such as malicious wounding, domestic violence, assault and battery, along with sexual crimes including carnal knowledge of a minor, possession of child pornography, and rape. Having handled so many different cases, representing literally hundreds of clients, we understand the system and the defenses that you may have. We inspect every part of a case, employ private investigators when needed, and review all of the evidence closely.
If you want a lawyer who will stand between you and the power of the government, call us today.
