Fairfax County Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you are in trouble with the law — whether for a traffic violation, a drug crime, a drunk driving arrest, or any other offense — do not make matters worse. Do not make any statements or try to handle it yourself, and do not wait any longer to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney.

At the law offices of Jonathan Y. Short, P.C., I provide the capable representation you need to help minimize the impact of criminal charges, which may allow you to avoid jail and a conviction on your record. In addition to criminal defense, I handle other legal matters, including personal injury claims and family law. I serve clients in Arlington County, the Washington, D.C. metro area and throughout northern Virginia.

A General Law Practice Handling a Wide Range of Legal Problems

With more than 25 years of legal experience, I help my clients successfully resolve a wide range of problems, from criminal defense to family law to consumer law and debtor defense. In addition, I handle personal injury and car accident matters and represent juveniles charged with delinquency offenses.

As an experienced lawyer, I am capable of resolving even the most complex issues. I can handle a multi-faceted drug case involving marijuana trafficking, a creditor harassment case or family law mediation and negotiation, all with skill and effectiveness.

Personal Service From Your Attorney

I am a solo Virginia attorney, so you will deal directly with me. I will personally handle every aspect of your case. I pride myself on being available to my clients and providing honest advice about their legal situation. I will work hard to find the best resolution possible, no matter what the case may be. And if you do not need a lawyer, I will be honest and tell you so.
