HOW I CAN HELP?
Assault and Battery
Being charged with assault or battery is serious. You could be sent to jail, placed on probation, or fined. Let attorney Scott C. Nolan help.

If you’re arrested, you’ll want out of jail as soon as possible, but getting released is sometimes challenging. You may need the right attorney’s help.
Because it spans the globe and reaches millions, the internet has made possible all kinds of crimes. Anyone could be falsely accused of a “cybercrime.”
Although they are not crimes of violence, white-collar crimes – financial crimes that may impact thousands of innocent working people – are prosecuted quite aggressively in Virginia.
Merely entering a building with the intent to commit a crime constitutes burglary. If you are charged with burglary, promptly contact attorney Scott C. Nolan.
Violent crimes are the most severely-punished crimes in Virginia’s justice system. A conviction for a violent crime may be penalized with a prolonged prison term.

In 2018, more than 115,000 thefts were reported in Virginia. With so much theft, an innocent person could easily wind up facing a theft charge.
Many Virginia criminal cases involve warrants – a search warrant or an arrest warrant. Scott C. Nolan represents individuals charged with crimes and named in warrants.
Sealing and Expunging
If you’re being turned away by employers, an old criminal charge or arrest record may be the reason why. Sometimes, those records can be expunged.
When a probationer violates the terms of probation, the consequences can be severe, but the right lawyer can help you fight a probation violation charge.
IF YOU ARE ARRESTED
If you’re placed under arrest – and whether the police say so or not – you have the right to remain silent, and it is always wise to exercise that right. You must take any criminal charge seriously. The state of Virginia does, and a charge isn’t going away until it is resolved. Get the help you need as swiftly as you can, and discuss your case with no one but your attorney. Adhere to your attorney’s advice, and do not fail to appear in court.
If you’re innocent of the criminal charge against you, Scott C. Nolan will negotiate to have the charge dropped or the case dismissed. If your case goes to trial, he will explain to a jury exactly what happened and why you should be acquitted. In those cases where a conviction is certain, Scott C. Nolan will fight for reduced or alternative sentencing.
