Criminal Appeals

       Anyone who goes to trial and loses a criminal case is forced to face the reality that his or her freedom, reputation, or both rests on the success of their criminal appeal. Chris has regularly handled appeals in the Virginia Court of Appeals, the Virginia Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in Richmond, his cases include Foltz v. Commonwealth, the first warrantless GPS tracking case in Virginia history, Rogers v. Commonwealth, a death penalty case that resulted in a life sentence; Commonwealth v. Pannell, a case that heightened protections for juveniles charged with probation violations and provoked the General Assembly to change the Juvenile Code; Brown v. Commonwealth, a DWI case reversed by the Virginia Court of Appeals because of faulty breath test procedures; Hernandez v. United States, a case that challenged the federal rule not requiring a jury trial in DWI cases; and, United States v. Jeffery, an appeal of a conviction for a multi-million dollar oil theft scam in Iraq.

The firm handles appeals by charging an initial fee for an extensive review of the record to determine whether the case contains issue meritorious enough to warrant expenditure of the costs for the whole appeal. After such a review, and once a client decides to appeal, the fee can be structured over time. Because criminal appeals, particularly of complex trials, involve extensive and detailed review of the record and legal authorities, Chris regularly handles cases in collaboration with the Law Office of Joni C. Robin. In such an event, both attorneys work on the brief, maintain contact with the client, appear in court, and are fully versed in all components of the case.

The Law Offices of Christopher Leibig represents individuals charged with or being investigated for serious crimes in State and Federal court throughout Virginia and in Washington DC.

Located at 114 North Alfred Street in Old Town Alexandria, the firm works in close conjunction with the Law Offices of Joni C. Robin.

The philosophy of the firm is that the best results in criminal cases result from handling a small number of cases at a time. Quite often, the facts of a case as initially described in court represent only a fraction of what happened and why, and extensive investigation is required to understand and present the entire picture. By working with investigators, psychological experts, and the clients along with their families, the Law Office of Christopher Leibig seeks to bring forward all of the information which can bear positively on a client’s situation.

Chris Leibig and Heidi Meinzer serve as the Northern Virginia defense attorneys for police officer’s legal defense fund, PORAC.
