Criminal Defense Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Pensacola Criminal Defense Attorneys

We Can Defend You in This Difficult Time

When you are arrested, or even just investigated for a crime, it can feel like everyone believes you are already guilty. As criminal defense lawyers in Pensacola, our only concern in your case is helping you through this difficult time and obtaining the best possible outcome.

If you have been arrested or are under investigation, don’t talk to the police unless you have an attorney present. Anything you say can be used against you in court, and even innocent statements can be made to sound incriminating when taken out of context. When you retain our services, we can make sure law enforcement only hears what you meant to say.

It is important to retain legal counsel as soon as possible after being arrested. Call (800) 822-5170 to speak with our team today.

You Should Always Enlist Legal Representation

You are entitled to legal representation for a reason. In court, you will be facing a trained prosecutor who takes on cases like yours every day. Even if you are innocent of any wrongdoing, they can present the evidence available to paint a picture that incriminates you.

Conversely, if you believe you have committed some wrongdoing, you will still want an attorney on your side to make sure the court doesn’t charge you for additional crimes. For example, if you were arrested for DUI, the prosecution might also try to add resisting arrest to your charges if you did anything that made the officers feel like you were not cooperating. In many cases, additional charges like these can be dropped when a skilled attorney is working for your case.

Criminal cases our lawyers take on include:

  • Theft
  • Burglary
  • Criminal trespassing
  • White collar crimes
  • Assault
  • DUI
  • Traffic offenses

Why You Need a Private Criminal Defense Lawyer in Pensacola

Public defenders serve a valuable purpose, and they are usually competent lawyers. However, it is not their capability that makes them the less preferable option, but their schedules. Public defenders are usually handling several cases at once, leaving them little time to thoroughly investigate one particular situation. The minute details matter in criminal cases, and you will want someone who can devote the time and resources that your case deserves.

At The Virga Law Firm, P.A., our criminal defense attorneys in Pensacola can provide you with the personalized service and guidance you need. We know how difficult this situation can be for you and your family, and we are here to help you in whatever capacity we can.
