Experienced Defense Against Violent Crimes

Violent crimes are some of the most serious charges a person can face. A murder conviction can lead to life imprisonment. While most people will never face a murder charge, a person who is convicted of any crime of violence may still face years in prison, as well as having the stigma of a criminal record for the rest of their lives. It is critical to get experienced legal counsel in your corner.

I am attorney Jeffrey Everhart, and I have more than 38 years of experience taking on some of the most infamous cases ever tried before the courts in Virginia. If you have been accused of an act of violence, it is important to seek legal help right away. Call me at 804-212-1363 to schedule an appointment to discuss your case.

I Defend Against All Charges

If you are charged with a crime of violence, sentencing is harsher than crimes of property and when weapons are alleged to be involved. Crimes of violence are crimes against a person and are therefore treated more severally than property crimes. There is no charge that is too complex for me to defend against. I handle all violent criminal charges, including:

  • Murder and manslaughter
  • Assault and battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Weapons charges

During my nearly four decades of legal practice, I have handled over 100 murder trials, including dozens of capital murder cases. I do not shy away from difficult cases. I have handled trials for Timothy Spencer, aka the “Southside Strangler,” and Ricky Gray. I am committed to the belief that everyone deserves to have the right to an effective legal defense. After all, a person who is convicted of a violent crime may still face years in prison as well as having the stigma of a criminal record for the rest of their lives. I am prepared to put my extensive experience to work for you.
