Criminal Defense Attorneys You Can Trust

Learn More About What Sets Us Apart

Our attorneys and staff have the skills and experience you need to resolve your case both quickly and effectively.

Most importantly, we take a different approach to legal services by focusing on ways we can solve the most common problems people have with law firms:

Problem: It's hard to get in touch with my attorney.

At Tingen & Williams, we’ve made a commitment to always respond to client contacts within one business day.

When you’re already dealing with the stress of an important legal matter, quick and consistent communication is very important.

Whether you want a simple update or you want to better understand the strategy in your case, our attorneys and staff will keep you in the loop at every step of your case.

Problem: I've heard about attorneys that will promise one thing and then deliver another, so I'm worried about what to expect.

No attorney can guarantee a specific result in your case.

Instead, we aim to help clients understand every aspect of their case before moving forward.

There’s no such thing as a “sure-thing” in the legal world, but we’ll do our best to make sure you know what to expect before you step into the courtroom.

Problem: I never know what's going on in my case, and my attorney never explains anything.

We believe that an informed client is a happy client.

From our firm’s extensive Knowledge Base to our client-focused consultation structure, we’ve developed our business around making sure our clients understand the ins and outs of their specific legal matter.

Problem: Attorneys are too expensive, and I'm worried that I won't understand where my money is going.

We believe in giving everyone access to justice, and we try to reflect this ideal in every aspect of our practice.

For this reason, we’ve taken steps to make the legal process as affordable and accessible as possible for all of our clients.

While it’s no secret that some types of cases can get expensive quickly, our attorneys ensure you only pay for the services you need.

Further, our transparent billing practices can help you know ahead of time exactly where your money is going.

Frequently Asked Questions

Being charged with a crime is a stressful experience, and you probably have questions about what we can do to help.

Check out our answers to a few of these frequently asked questions below, or call us at (804) 477-1720 to schedule a free phone consultations with one of our attorneys!

No (sane) attorney will answer this question without first listening to a full overview of your case and the circumstances of your situation.

We can, as we do in our Knowledge Base articles, provide a general outline of how the process works in theory, but the specific shape and nature of your divorce is something that only your attorney can outline in full.

If you’d like some more information about the Virginia criminal defense process, please see the linked articles and resources in our “Free Resources and Downloads” section above.

The answer to this question will largely depend on the specifics of your case.

For example, most criminal cases can be resolved with a plea deal or other measure before they go to court. Meanwhile, other cases may require months of trial prep and other associated tasks.

Put simply, the more complex your case is, the longer it will take to resolve. For this reason, it’s usually wise to ask your attorney what they think your best course of action will be (and how long it will take).
