Aggressive Virginia Criminal Defense Attorney Fights for Your Rights

Determined lawyer represents people accused of crimes in the South West Virgnia

If you face criminal charges, you can be sure that the police and prosecutors will bring all their power to bear against you. That’s why you want a strong, experienced advocate to fight for your rights just as forcefully. At Steven P. Milani, Attorney at Law, P.C , I represent people throughout South West Virginia who’ve been accused of committing crimes by providing aggressive, results-oriented defense in both judge and jury trials. I know the Virginia criminal justice system, and  have both the background and skill to take on the toughest cases. No matter what type of charge you face, you can count on me to press for the best possible result through tenacious, creative,  tireless advocacy.

Seasoned Virginia advocate challenges the charges against you

At Steven P. Milani, Attorney at Law, P.C., I oppose charges ranging from minor offenses to the most serious felonies. Felony convictions carry serious consequences. A person convicted of a felony is subject to a sentence of at least one year in a prison and may be incarcerated for life, additionally with a felony conviction you can not possess a firearm or vote. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, a misdemeanor conviction can send you to jail for up to 12 months, result in a fine of up to $2500 and leave you with a record that follows you for the rest of your life.

I represents clients charged with:

  • Violent crimes — I build self-defense arguments and other strong legal responses to charges such as murder, robbery, armed burglary, assault, rape and other violent crimes.
  • Drug violations — Charges of trafficking, distributing or possessing an illegal substance can result in heavy fines and extended time in prison. My goal is to challenge stops, consent searches, search warrants and eliminate or minimize the charges against you.
  • Sex crimes — Sentences for sexual offenses  carry lifelong consequences. I will  challenge the accusations and ensure your side of the story is strongly told and that your rights are protected.
  • Theft — During negotiations  with prosecutors and in trial, I skillfully respond to larceny, robbery and other theft charges.
  • Driving offenses — If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol,  I will challenge law enforcement’s procedures and test results

Tenacious and creative lawyer presses for dismissals, exoneration and fair plea deals

Through each step of your case, I will strongly challenge the prosecution’s efforts to prove you guilty. I have excellent research skills and will do a thorough review of case law in order to prepare the best possible legal defense for your case. I have tried over 50 criminal cases to jurries with successful results.  You can count on me to do everything in my power to obtain the best possible outcome under the facts, whether that’s a not guilty verdict at a jury or judge trial, or a reduced sentence through a plea agreement. I know that witnesses can fabricate stories or misremember events, crime scenes can be tampered with, and law enforcement can make mistakes. To build your defense, I will carefully examine physical and digital evidence, witness statements and police reports, for vulnerabilities. I personally speak with witnesses and examine the alleged crime scene. When the circumstances call for it, I bring in experts to challenge the prosecution’s theories.
