As the founder of Thoman Law, PLLC, I am 100% focused on defending the rights of my clients and helping them obtain reduced charges, sentence reductions, dismissals and not guilty verdicts wherever possible. As a former prosecutor turned Newport News criminal defense lawyer, you are benefiting from my experience working in the Newport News Office of the Commonwealth Attorney behind the scenes.

Not only do I know how to attack a prosecution's case and search for holes in an investigation, but throughout my career I have taught fellow attorneys, law enforcement officers, and law students at the Newport News Police Academy in seminars and internships on various topics including criminal law and procedure and trial litigation skills.

Criminal Defense Representation in Newport News, VA

Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, it's imperative that you secure quality defense representation. Regardless if you are innocent of the charges against you or if you had a momentary lapse in judgment, you don't want your fate sealed by the prosecution.

As a Newport News criminal defense attorney, I represent individuals on the state and federal level in a variety of charges including, but not limited to:

With over 183,000 residents as of 2013, and with a strong military presence due to the joint U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army installation at Joint Base Langley-Eustis and other military bases and suppliers, Newport News has had its own fair share of DUIs, traffic offenses, and other criminal offenses. However, with Newport News being such a family-oriented town, many of our community members simply cannot afford a criminal conviction on their record and what it can do to their reputation and careers.

A criminal conviction can incur a host of negative consequences such as fines, community service, and driver's license suspension, the loss of parental rights, mandatory sex offender registration, and incarceration. When faced with these possibilities, you need an aggressive defense attorney fighting in your corner to get your charges dropped, reduced or dismissed. As a former prosecutor, I know how to challenge any evidence against my clients and question police procedures. When your freedom and reputation are on the line, you cannot afford a weak or apathetic approach to your case!

Just a few reasons why I should be your first call:

  • I am a former prosecutor.
  • I have trained law enforcement and other attorneys on criminal procedure.
  • I can defend state and federal crimes.
  • I offer free, confidential case evaluations.
  • I offer flexible payment plans.
