Having handled thousands of a particular type of case in Virginia gives a former prosecutor a perspective that cannot be gained by those that have spent their entire career on only one side of the legal equation. This experience puts a former prosecutor at a distinct advantage in handling your case. Moreover, having that prosecutorial experience in the county in which a client is charged gives a former prosecutor an inside understanding of the very system his client will face.
