Richmond Criminal Defense Attorney
Charged with a crime?
If you are facing criminal charges, the law firm that you select to defend you is an extremely important matter. There are many law firms in the Richmond area, but which one has the experience and court record that you need? At the Law Office of James A. Bullard, we have the credentials and trial experience that will best serve you. As a former prosecutor, Mr. Bullard has the insight into the criminal justice system that will ensure you receive a fair trial and the most comprehensive defense possible against the serious criminal charges brought against you. He is also on the
Virginia State Bar Board of Governors for Criminal Law, as well as a legal expert for Channel 6 News. When you contact our firm, you can be confident that everything possible will be done to fight for your defense.
Fighting Criminal Defense Charges
Our dedicated and proven team represents clients in a wide variety of criminal charges, and we are prepared to fight for you no matter if you are charged with DUI, murder, or another offense. We have the experience to defend difficult
white collar crimes, such as accusations of
forgery, and such
theft crimes as
carjacking. You deserve powerful representation for your trial, as conviction of any criminal offense can result in damaging consequences that can impact your freedoms and opportunities for years to come.
If you are facing criminal accusations involving sex crimes, such as
child sexual abuse, or
child pornography, it is vital that your defense is initiated immediately. Although these charges are often the result of an angry or bitter partner or former partner, the prosecution will still seek to have you harshly tried. The repercussions of a conviction are very serious, including the requirement of registering as a sex offender with your name, address, and photo available to anyone who has access to the internet. These allegations can severely affect your relationships, career, and reputation, but you can be confident that we will fight tirelessly to expose the flaws in the prosecution’s case to have your charges dropped and your name vindicated.
Our firm can defend those who are charged with federal crimes, which are exceptionally dangerous with much higher penalties than those that are charged at the state level. If you are facing criminal accusations of
kidnapping, you should not hesitate to retain the relentless advocacy of our talented firm. These offenses are rigorously investigated by law enforcement, and you will need the knowledgeable guidance and aggressive representation of an experienced defense team to challenge the accusations made against you.
Powerful Defense for Misdemeanor and Felony Offenses
We have had great success in defending our clients against all types of drug crimes, both misdemeanor and felony. In many cases, prosecutors will seek to impose increased charges against an individual arrested for
drug possession. Depending upon the amount of the illegal substance or narcotic found on your person or in your possession, they may see to include charges of
drug distribution or
drug transportation, even if the drug was only intended for personal use. Conviction for drug crimes can lead to extreme penalties, but our skilled team will thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to your arrest and determine if your charges came as a result of an illegal search and seizure or another violation of your rights. We adamantly protect the rights of our clients, and we will seek to have any unlawfully gained evidence thrown out in court and move to have your charges dropped.
We defend clients against charges of all types of violent crimes including
domestic violence. Virginia lawmakers have enacted statutes that heavily punish all violent offenses, and it is advised that you exercise your right to remain silent and contact the firm at once if you are either arrested or under investigation for any of these felony charges. The prosecution will pursue the highest possible charges and penalties, but we will build a comprehensive defense to ensure your voice is heard before the court.
Our firm is prepared to offer nothing less than exceptional representation for clients charged with any offense, including young people who are accused of juvenile crimes like gang offenses or
underage possession of alcohol, individuals accused of
internet crimes in either state or federal court,
weapon crimes. We can fight to have your charges reduced or dropped completely if you have been charged with
disorderly conduct or
resisting arrest, and we will advocate before the judge to keep you out of jail if you are in trouble with the law for
violating probation. If you are looking for a way to put the past behind you, we can help you pursue an
expungement so you can be freed from the problems associated with having an arrest or conviction on your criminal record.
