Proudly Serving Virginia Residents Dedicated Northfolk Criminal Defense Attorney

Norfolk Criminal Defense Lawyer

Aggressive Defense Representation in Norfolk

If you or someone you love has been arrested for a crime, you are going to want to hire a defense attorney who has the knowledge, experience and resources to fight your criminal charges. As a Norfolk criminal defense lawyer and founder of Thoman Law, PLLC, I began my legal career working as a prosecutor in the Newport News Office of the Commonwealth Attorney. While working as a prosecutor, I gained valuable experience and insight into how the prosecution operates, an experience which contributed significantly to my skills as a criminal defense attorney.

While many criminal lawyers only represent clients against state charges, I am licensed to practice in the United States District Court, Eastern District of Virginia, thereby qualifying me to take on federal cases such as embezzlement, bribery, identity theft and tax evasion in addition to state-level crimes. Whether you've been charged with your first DUI offense, armed robbery or murder, I have the knowledge and experience to defend you against all levels of misdemeanor and felony charges in the state and federal courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Why hire Thoman Law, PLLC?

  • During my tenure as a prosecutor, I successfully tried or negotiated thousands of cases.
  • I am licensed to practice in all courts in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
  • I have taught fellow attorneys, law enforcement officers, and law students at the Newport News Police Academy on various topics including criminal law and procedure.
  • I offer free, confidential consultations.
  • I offer flexible payment plans.

Norfolk is the second-most populous city in Virginia, behind Virginia Beach with over 246,000 residents as of 2013. With the largest Navy base in the world, and a variety of historic neighborhoods such as Berkley and Willoughby Spit, it is a bustling city and a nice place to work and raise a family. However, if you are facing criminal charges, your job and your family are at risk and facing an uncertain future. When law enforcement officials and prosecutors have already made up their minds against you, you need an aggressive attorney fighting in your corner to protect your rights, your freedom and your future!

As a proud member of the American Bar Association, the Virginia Bar Association, and the Newport News Bar Association, I defend clients against a variety of charges including:

Regardless if you are facing charges for assault, DUI, or murder, your future hinges on the quality of representation you receive. As a former prosecutor who has developed valuable relationships with local area judges, prosecutors and law enforcement personnel, I have extensive experience negotiating favorable plea bargains and aggressively fighting for dismissed charges and not guilty verdicts on behalf of my clients.

Defendants run the risk of eyewitness misidentifications and wrongful convictions, not to mention the loss of parental rights, a suspended driver's license, mandatory sex offender registration and a host of other consequences of a conviction. When your future is at stake, you cannot afford a weak defense.

I am not afraid to challenge every aspect of your case and search for any flaws that may exonerate you. I care about my clients and their families and will put a great deal of effort into helping you achieve a favorable case result. Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, you deserve to have the best defense representation possible. Committed to defending your rights, I will work tirelessly to help you receive either a favorable plea bargain, a sentence reduction, reduced charges, dropped charges, an acquittal or a not guilty verdict.

Contact my office today to arrange your free case evaluation – I truly look forward to helping you!
