Public Relations

        It is almost never a good idea for a criminal defendant to discuss a pending case with anyone but his or her lawyer.

It is absolutely never a good idea for a defendant to do so without planning the methods and means for such communications with a lawyer who understands the process. People who are being charged with or investigated for a crime are properly concerned with what to say to whom, how, and when. These strategic decisions should be made by the lawyers with a long term view in mind.

Defense attorneys should be careful never to make public comments or discuss a case in forums which have the possibility to influence the jury pool in a case, and should never make a public comment about a case which is not strategically designed to help the client. Nevertheless, it is obvious that public opinion, workplace rules, and the politics surrounding certain cases have an influence on the way cases are treated within the system. The reputational devastation that can occur, both at work and in the community, for being accused of a crime can be as bad as the punishment for the crime. Chris has experience dealing with public and private employers — including police departments, the Virginia Nursing Board, and public school systems. He also has substantial experience dealing with print and television media outlets.

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.
