Building A Strong And Effective Defense

The sooner we can start the defense effort, the better we will be able to serve you. We will conduct a comprehensive review of the evidence, which can include independent investigations by experienced professional investigators.

We may also initiate a discussion about your charge with the prosecutor, with the aim of convincing the prosecutor to drop the charge or reduce it to a lesser charge. Madigan and Scott, Inc., will work to protect your rights and preserve your freedom at all stages of the legal process.

Alternatives To Conviction And Jail

If you are a first-time offender, you may be able to avoid conviction or jail. For example, if you receive a 251 disposition for a drug offense, the charge is dismissed after some months, provided that you do not get in any further trouble. The court may require you to perform community service or comply with other conditions.

We understand the many different alternatives to conviction available in Virginia. If you are a suitable candidate and desire this type of outcome, we will work to obtain it for you.
