In the midst of legal issues, hiring the right attorney for you is crucial. If you're looking for an attorney who exhibits characteristics of integrity, experience, and a genuine concern for your well-being, the attorneys at Koehler and Vernail may be the right fit for you. They serve clientele in Loudoun County, Virginia, Clarke County, Frederick County, the City of Winchester and other surrounding areas in criminal defense, family law and civil law cases.

Criminal Defense

Our approach and way of resolving criminal defense matters extend far beyond the concept of your potential guilt or innocence. Although this factor is important, adequately representing you requires so much more. We strive to understand you on a personal level. In some cases, criminal charges expose serious underlying problems that Virginia criminal penalties like jail time or imprisonment simply won't remedy. Recognizing these issues beyond the charges you've acquired is the first step in defending you in court and achieving an outcome that is not only favorable but, more importantly, reflects your best interests. At our firm, breaking the cycle of recidivism and giving our clients a fair shot at justice is the ultimate success.

We also understand that everyone makes mistakes. If this is your first criminal charge, you don't deserve the full wrath of the criminal justice system. We'll make sure to identify your priorities and strategize accordingly.

Family Law

Family law matters are personal. With the many layers, nuances, and emotional elements intertwined in divorce, child custody, and spousal support cases, we attempt to identify what really matters. In splits that aren't so amicable, it's important that you remain focused on your goals even when emotions are high. We're here to provide objective counsel that solely focuses on accomplishing your goals. After all, these matters will have lasting effects on you and your family. When dealings get contentious, it's our duty to advocate as a shield to defend your character and a sword to protect your interests. 

Civil Law

Civil law matters are wide ranging and require the attorneys to truly understand the issue so that they can accurately analyze the best outcomes for a client. 

Koehler and Vernail Want To Help You

All of us at Koehler and Vernail understand that your case outcome, whether it be in relation to a family law matter, a criminal charge or a civil case, will dictate the state of your future and that these issues should be handled and approached as such. We will vehemently fight to ensure your interests and needs are considered in a court of law.

Results that Matter to You
