Areas of Law Description
The Law Office of Wilfred Ward Yeargan, III provides legal representation and services in the following areas of practice:
- Criminal Defense
Mr. Yeargan has handled hundreds of criminal cases in the Commonwealth of Virginia as defense counsel. It is important to retain competent counsel early in the criminal trial process, especially in felony cases. Attorney Yeargan encourages prospective clients to talk to him early before trial in misdemeanor cases and before the preliminary hearing in felony cases.
* Embezzlement Charges
Embezzlement is the wrongful taking, concealment or fraudulent use of money, personal property or goods of another. As with any criminal charge, the government bears the burden to prove the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Attorney Yeargan aggressively defends those charged with Embezzlement and other crimes.
* Assault and Battery
The criminal offense of Assault and Battery is a Class One Misdemeanor in Virginia. The Virginia Code further states that Assault and Battery is a felony when the defendant intentionally selects the person assaulted based on their race, religious conviction, color or national origin and the individual sustains bodily injury.
* Juvenile Criminal and Traffic Defense
Juvenile Criminal and Traffic charges present special concerns for parents and their children. Persons under eighteen years of age may be charged with serious criminal offenses that carry significant penalties. Attorney Yeargan works closely with parents and their children in juvenile criminal matters.
* Expungement of Criminal and Traffic Charges
The Law Office of Wilfred W. Yeargan can file a Petition for Expungement of your criminal or traffic charge in the jurisdiction where it was heard. §19.2-392.2 of the Virginia Code specifies the conditions when expungement is appropriate. Expungement of a criminal or traffic offense removes the charge existing on the defendant’s record.
* Traffic Cases
Mr. Yeargan handles traffic cases in Virginia General District Courts, Circuit Courts and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts. Typical types of traffic cases include reckless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol, driving after being declared a habitual offender, and driving after forfeiture of license.
* Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol
DUI is a serious criminal offense and stays on a Virginia driving record for eleven (11) years. The DMV assesses six points as a demerit deduction for this conviction. Depending on the facts of the case and your driving record, Attorney Yeargan may be able to negotiate dismissal of the charge or reduction to a lesser offense.
- Landlord-Tenant Disputes
In the Commonwealth of Virginia, the majority of residential landlord-tenant cases are filed for failure to pay rent. The landlord initiates a case by serving the pay or quit notice upon the tenant. This notice gives the tenant five days (or longer, depending on the terms of the lease) to pay back rent and associated late fees or risk termination of the lease agreement.
- Personal Injury
This law office assists clients with personal injury claims stemming from motor vehicle accidents or intentional harm resulting from assault and battery. Mr. Yeargan assists clients with assessing the extent of physical injury and determining the strength of each claim.
- Business Formation and Litigation
This law firm also assists clients in the formation of their chosen business entity. Mr. Yeargan assists clients with the establishment of Corporations and Limited Liability Companies. He serves as a registered agent with the State Corporation Commission for such entities.
