Experienced Criminal Defense Legal Counsel

There is much at stake if you have been charged with a crime. Beyond the potential consequences of heavy fines, probation and a prison sentence, a criminal conviction can make it difficult to find employment, housing and may make you ineligible to qualify for certain loans. With so much on the line, you need help from an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

I am attorney Jeffrey Everhart and I have more than 35 years of experience acting as a champion for the rights of the accused. If you are facing criminal charges, call my law office in Henrico County at 804-212-1363 to schedule an appointment to discuss your case.

Building A Defense Against All Criminal Charges

In over three decades of legal practice, I have helped defend people against all criminal charges, felonies and misdemeanors, state and federal crimes, including:

Crimes of violence: From simple assault to capital murder charges, I understand how to challenge the state's evidence. I will do everything I can to get your charges reduced or dismissed.

Federal fraud charges: There is often a misconception that white collar crimes are not taken as seriously as other types of crime. This is simply not true, especially when the extensive resources of the federal government are lined up against you. I have helped defend numerous people who have faced federal criminal fraud charges.

Drunk driving and traffic violations: Nearly everyone drives, which means nearly everyone is at risk for criminal charges. From DWI allegations to charges of reckless driving, it is important to protect your driving privileges with the help of a seasoned attorney.

Drug offenses: I help defend people against all types of drug charges. Whether you are facing misdemeanor possession charges or are facing federal drug trafficking charges, I can help protect your constitutional rights at every stage of your criminal proceeding.

Underage possession charges: It is no secret that many college students engage in underage drinking. It can be tempting to shrug off charges involving underage possession. However, a criminal record can derail your child's future, showing up whenever anyone performs a background check and may even lead to expulsion from school. I will work hard to help minimize these potential consequences.
