Criminal Defense

Tesler and Werblood attorneys at law have offices located in Falls Church, Virginia. We have over 35 years of experience advocating for and representing those who have been accused of a crime. This experience allows us to get the best results for our clients. We assist the accused throughout the legal process, and work to find a timely resolution. From pretrial issues to the trial itself, we have the necessary experience to provide you with an assertive defense.

If you are accused of a crime, you should retain a knowledgeable attorney. Charges for crimes range from a misdemeanor to a felony. Punishment ranges in severity from fines to life in prison. While misdemeanors may result in community service or a fine, felony charges could result in serving years in prison. To receive the best defense possible, you need an experienced criminal attorney who knows both federal and Virginia state laws.

At Tesler and Werblood, we know how to argue points of law that may get the charges reduced, or the case dropped. Our firm has a team of investigators along with paralegals and support staff to help with each case, allowing you to have the best representation possible. We work to get your bail reduced so you can be released from any pretrial time in jail. As your attorneys, we take part in the criminal investigation, interview witnesses, and conduct research into case law and statutes that apply to your case. We draft and file motions such as motions to dismiss the charges or suppress evidence, and then argue for those motions on the client’s behalf. We analyze the case to build a strong defense against the charges. If necessary, we work with the prosecutor to reduce the charges, or negotiate a plea bargain.
