Our Practice Areas

Our Practice Areas

TThe attorneys of The Gordon Law Firm have represented more than 2,500 people charged with criminal and traffic offenses throughout Northern Virginia including Leesburg, Manassas and Fairfax. The following are our main practice areas in which we have legal expertise:


Domestic Violence

Virginia Domestic Violence and Assault and Battery

The criminal defense attorneys of The Gordon Law Firm have represented more than three hundred people who have been accused of Assault and Battery and other alleged acts of violence. If you have reached this area of the website, you are worried about your case, your situation, and what might happen to you in court.

Assault and Battery Penalties in Virginia

Virginia misdemeanor Assault and Battery can be punished by up to 12 months incarceration in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,500.00. You may also have to pay restitution to the victim.

The penalties may be different if the Commonwealth Attorney in Henrico, Hanover, or Chesterfield County can prove the person assaulted was a police officer, or if the person was chosen by the accused because of his or her race, religion, or ethnicity, or if the person was a school teacher.

Domestic Assault Penalties in Virginia

The most common form of Assault and Battery charged in Manassas, Fairfax and Leesburg is Domestic Assault (a/k/a: Domestic Violence).

Unfortunately, once the court system becomes involved, the Commonwealth Attorney decides whether or not to prosecute Domestic Assault and Assault and Battery cases. That means that even if the person who is the alleged “victim” is your husband or wife, your child, your parent, or your best friend and that person does not want the case to go forward, the prosecutor and court does not have to listen to the “victim’s” concerns.

Our domestic violence lawyers have watched prosecutors insist on a conviction for Domestic Assault and even argue for prison time even when every person involved with the case wanted the case dropped.

Consequences of Conviction

As with all misdemeanor convictions in the Commonwealth of Virginia, unless you receive a Governor’s pardon, a Domestic Assault or Assault and Battery conviction remains on your criminal record for the remainder of your life.

The conviction may jeopardize your employment, damage your opportunity to obtain a security clearance, and can restrict your right to possess firearms. A criminal conviction for domestic violence can also have an effect on child custody issues in family law cases.

If you are not an American citizen, a conviction may result in your inability to become a naturalized citizen and may even result in your removal from the United States.

Ensure a Proper Defense

The consequences of court proceedings for Virginia Domestic Assault and Assault and Battery are serious. You need a criminal defense attorney that will carefully listen to your concerns, provide personal attention to your case, and knows that the consequences are serious.

The criminal defense lawyers at The Gordon Law Firm have more than 40 years of combined trial experience arguing these types of cases before judges of General District Courts, Juvenile and Domestic Relations Courts, and Circuit Courts.

If you are accused of Domestic Assault or Assault and Battery in the Northern Virginia area, call Paula Bernstein, our experienced criminal defense lawyer immediately for a free consultation.

To schedule a free consultation with an experienced Domestic Assault attorney in Fairfax, Manassas or Leesburg, call our office at 804-864-9424 or toll free at 866-591-6682.
