DWI/DUI, Reckless Driving, Criminal Charges

If you have been charged with DWI/DUI or issued a summons for the criminal traffic offense of Reckless Driving Speeding or Reckless Driving General in Fairfax, Virginia, or have been charged with Larceny, Drug Possession, Hit and Run, or another criminal offense, you have some very important decisions to make in short order about which lawyer you will hire to handle your case. 

These charges are more than mere violations or "traffic" matters. They are crimes and are punishable by imprisonment, high fines, and license suspension. Moreover, they can have other serious consequences - an adverse impact on your security clearance, auto and life insurance, your ability to maintain employment and gain employment in the future, or if you are not a citizen, your ability to remain in this country, obtain a visa, and ultimately become a citizen.

Immigration Law

Our immigration practice is focused on meeting the needs of individuals and families. We handle visa matters, adjustment of status, waiver applications, naturalization, asylum, removal proceedings, and other immigration legal issues that may arise.  Immigration law is a constantly changing area of law.  We spend a great deal time studying the federal laws and regulations to understand how those laws affect our client’s cases.  We put in the hard work to protect the interests of our clients.

Our Guarantee - No Sales Pitch, No Pressure

Hiring an attorney can be a confusing and stressful process, but it doesn't have to be.  The most challenging aspect of the process is trying to determine what information you can rely on.  After all, law firms are business, which can  leave you questioning the reliability of  information you receive.  You may ask: am I being told certain things on a web page or in a consultation merely because the attorney wants me to hire them or because he or she truly believes what has been said? Apart from our experience and case results, the top quality we pride ourselves on at Manikas Law is that you will receive no sales pitch and only straightforward, honest information.  Sometimes that means we have to tell you we cannot be of much help with your legal problem.  While that may be disappointing, we believe you need to have an honest assessment of the legal landscape as early as possible in the process.  However, with some cases, it is not possible to tell the direction a case will take at the time of the consultation.   While most prospective clients decide to move forward with representation at the time of the consultation, there will be no pressure to make a decision at that time.
