Petersburg Criminal Defense Attorney

Petersberg Defense

Let Our Former Police Officer Defend You

If you're facing criminal charges, you probably have a lot on your mind. Will you lose your license, your job, or your parental rights? Will you have to go to jail or prison, and pay thousands in fines? By contacting Curcione Law, PLC, you will get a former police officer fighting in your corner, and you will get the level of defense representation that your situation demands!

While you may qualify to have a public defender, do you really want someone who is overwhelmed or fresh out of law school to defend your case? At our firm, Attorney Curcione has a bachelor's degree in criminal justice, he spent eight years serving for the Virginia Beach Police Department, and he's a seasoned Petersburg criminal defense attorney – it doesn't get much better than that!

It doesn't matter if you are being accused of DUI, possession of marijuana, rape, or a serious violent felony, it is your right to have a strong defense. You are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and it is our job to instill that doubt in the minds of the key decision makers such as the prosecution, the judge, and the jury.

Criminal Defense Areas of Practice

From a first time DUI offense, to child abuse, violations of protective orders, and violent felonies, we can defend you. No matter what you're being accused of, we'll treat you with the dignity and respect you deserve.

Crime Rate Statistics in Petersburg, Virginia

With a population over 30,000 people and a density of about 1,400 people per square mile, the city of Petersburg has a total crime rate (based on the total annual crimes per 1,000 residents) of 43.6. Roughly 13% of all crimes there are considered violent crimes, a rate that is more than double than the average in the rest of the state. Even though property crimes – such as theft and burglary – are slightly below the national average, they remain above the state median.

As the overall crime rate of Petersburg is greater than Virginia and the rest of the nation, it might initially seem like an unsafe city. Exaggerated claims, falsified reports, and cases that were dismissed due to contradictory evidence are not considered for the crime rate, however.
