“To err is human.” No truer words have ever been spoken.
People make mistakes all the time. You have made mistakes. Although some mistakes may be worse than others, that doesn’t mean they should affect your entire future. However, when charged and convicted of a crime, that is exactly what happens. It doesn't matter if it is a misdemeanor or felony—a conviction can cause irreparable harm to your present and future. These effects are even more devastating if you didn’t commit the crime of which you’re accused. If your defense falls short and you’re convicted, you could wind up suffering unfairly.
This is why Attorney Van Hardenbergh has spent the majority of his career defending clients against wrongful convictions and unjust sentences, including:
- Unreasonable fines
- Discriminatory job loss
- A damning permanent conviction on a criminal record
- Loss of security clearance for military and government jobs, including Fort Lee soldiers, contractors, and employees
- Wrongful or unjust imprisonment
- Permanent branding or disgrace (“sexual predator,” “murderer,” etc.)
Fighting Common Criminal Charges in Virginia
With over 20 years of experience defending clients against criminal charges, Van Hardenbergh knows the importance of a good defense, especially when the charges are severe. This is why he tirelessly works to gather all the necessary facts, understand the circumstances, and procure evidence to have false charges dropped. When the evidence doesn’t present a strong case, he doesn’t give up. If acquittal is not a possibility, he’ll still fight to make sure you get the best possible outcome, no matter what you’re charged with, including:
- Reckless driving
- Drug possession
- Driving on a suspended license
- Driving without a license
- Assault and battery
- Breaking and entering
Getting the Outcome You Deserve
When you’re charged with a crime, you shouldn’t have to worry about how well your defense will work. You shouldn’t be concerned about whether your attorney is fighting to get you the best deal, or if he’s just going through the motions. A reliable attorney will always fight, no matter what. Van will always fight, no matter what. When faced with potential consequences that can ruin your future, why take the chance on a mediocre defense? You deserve more!
