A former prosecuting attorney, who has tried hundreds of bench and jury trials and negotiated thousands of cases, Leesburg lawyer Caleb A. Kershner brings the benefit of his experience to every case he handles. He is at home in state and federal courts and knows what criminal defense strategies can tip the scales of justice in his clients’ favor. Through his intensive criminal law experience and the use of cutting-edge legal tactics, he provides clients with superior defense in felonies, misdemeanors, DUI, traffic violations and reckless driving cases.

When you face arrest and prosecution, having the right lawyer at your side can make a considerable difference in the outcome of your case. Criminal defense attorney Caleb Kershner advises you when not to answer questions that put your case in jeopardy. He understands the prosecution’s motives and its attempts to convict. He can guide you through legal landmines while finding holes in the prosecution’s case. He aggressively defends your rights by employing strategies that create reasonable doubt regarding alleged offenses.

Leesburg Personal Injury Attorneys

Our legal system offers protection under personal injury law to people who are seriously injured through the negligence or wrongful actions of others. Under Virginia contributory negligence law, you have the right to recover compensation as long as you did not contribute in any way to causing the injury. Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury case and one of our personal injury lawyers can review your accident, gather evidence and identify liable parties to help you recover damages. Without an attorney, injury victims come up against insurance companies that use tactics to deny or delay their claims. By putting a strong advocate on your side, you can level the playing field and receive the compensation you are entitled to by law.

It is vital to seek legal help when someone else is at fault for your injury – especially when you have serious personal injuries such as head trauma or spinal damage. Medical costs can be exorbitant when dealing with a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, requiring extensive assistive care and resulting in a lifetime of lost income capacity.

The Importance of Retaining a Leesburg Criminal Attorney

We have all seen the movies and TV shows where the police advise a person under arrest of his right to remain silent. Thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Miranda case, Americans do have that right, along with the right to consult with an attorney before answering any questions. In real life, it is amazing how many people, after being advised of their rights, ignore them and go right ahead and talk to the police without first talking to a criminal attorney.

If the police are arresting you, or suspect that you might have committed a crime, your freedom and liberty are at stake. When they ask you a question, you need to consider the consequences. Only an attorney experienced in criminal defense can quickly and accurately assess whether it is in your interest to cooperate and answer questions that might incriminate you.

In Northern Virginia and Loudoun County, an attorney who was formerly a prosecutor is best equipped to protect your rights. This is why Simms Showers LLP’s Leesburg criminal defense law firm should be your first phone call when you are arrested or suspected of committing a crime.
