The CSA&D Criminal Defense Practice Group is co-chaired by Mark E. Sharp and David A. Hirsch. Mark has served as Prosecutor for the City of Fairfax, Virginia. Both Mark and David were instructors at the Northern Virginia Regional Police Academy, teaching law enforcement officers about the nuances of arrest, interrogation, and prosecution. Mark and David also have experience teaching seminars for other lawyers about the latest criminal cases and statutes.

Our criminal defense attorneys have lived and practiced law in the Northern Virginia communities for many years. They guide their clients through investigations, represent clients already charged with criminal offenses, and assist those who wish to appeal. Since even minor criminal charges are a threat to your reputation and your liberty, it is important that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as you know that you have been or will be investigated or charged.
