Criminal Defense Attorneys Dedicated to Serving Alexandria, Fairfax & Arlington

A criminal charge disrupts your life. A criminal conviction can change your life forever.

At Silis and Associates, we understand the impact a criminal charge can have on your life, both in the short term and well into the future. Our highly skilled criminal defense attorneys will work tirelessly to minimize the impact of criminal charges against you. We are dedicated to providing quality representation to clients facing charges in the following courts: Alexandria, Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William, Loudoun, and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. This includes each jurisdiction’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, General District Court, and Circuit Court. In our criminal practice we take a three-tiered approach to defending you:


Our first priority is to make efforts to suppress incriminating evidence against you and to discover exculpatory evidence that is favorable to your case.


After we have determined the scope of the information that both helps and hurts your case, we have extensive experience negotiating with prosecutors in order to minimize the impact of charges against you.

Trial Advocacy

While we strive to resolve your issue before going to the courtroom, we are always prepared to advocate zealously in your defense to protect your reputation and secure your freedom.

Our goal is to secure the most favorable outcome possible for you. We have successfully defended our clients against many criminal charges, including: embezzlement, burglary, counterfeiting, DUI, assault and battery, and drug possession and trafficking. Even in cases with serious charges, we have obtained reduced charges, dismissals, and acquittals.
