Proven Arlington Attorney Protects Clients Accused of Crimes

Skilled advocate rated as one of Northern Virginia’s top defense lawyers

When you’re accused of criminal misconduct, how you handle your defense could affect the rest of your life. Northern Virginia jurisdictions each have their own procedures and local rules, so hiring an attorney familiar with those rules and regulations is critical to getting a good result. At David Deane Attorney at Law, PLLC in Arlington, I have more than 20 years of experience litigating criminal matters as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. My unique background, which includes extensive trial work, gives me the ability to counter the tactics used by authorities in felony, misdemeanor and traffic proceedings, giving my clients an advantage. Whether you’ve been accused of driving while intoxicated, theft, assault or some other offense, I will aggressively protect your rights and press for a favorable result.

Responsive lawyer serves Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William counties

Allegations of criminal misconduct cannot be taken lightly and shouldn’t be placed in the hands of a novice. Throughout Northern Virginia, my firm is well known for its:
  • Strong recommendations — The people I’ve served and professional colleagues familiar with my practice have praised the work I’ve done. I have been rated one of Northern Virginia’s top criminal defense lawyers several years running by both Washingtonian Magazine and Northern Virginia Magazine.
  • Trustworthy advice — As someone who has prosecuted a wide range of felony and misdemeanor cases, I offer insights and find potential defenses that other attorneys miss. Whether your best option is a dismissal, an acquittal or a fair plea agreement, I’ll give you an honest, informed assessment of your situation.
  • Personalized attention — Every person I represent is treated with respect and benefits from a strategy that is tailored to their circumstances and objectives. If you have a question or concern, you can count on receiving prompt, clear answers.
From start to finish, my firm makes every effort to relieve the burden on you and your family. That is why I offer free consultations, flexible payment options and appointment hours that suit your needs.
Areas of Practice

Reputable firm handles DWI cases, felonies and misdemeanors

In Alexandria, Falls Church and other area jurisdictions, my firm delivers exceptional counsel and service in legal matters pertaining to:
