About Ann Thayer

Northern Virginia Criminal Defense and Protective Order Attorney

While I grew up the daughter of a Detective, my first job as an attorney was doing criminal defense. I have been going strong for 17 years now. When you are accused of a criminal, traffic, or, dui/dwi/duid offense, you deserve to have an attorney investigate the evidence and law and prepare your case for court.

As the oldest of six kids and aunt to many nieces and nephews, juvenile cases are also important to me. Juveniles have their entire lives ahead of them. The parents and juvenile will need help to guide them through the court process. Juveniles are afforded the same rights as adults!

Protective order cases are on the rise. It is important for victims to have assistance petitioning the court for protection so they are prepared when they go before the judge. Protective orders can be used against people for various reasons and will impact your firearms rights and record. I represent both sides on these civil protective orders.

I offer a free consultation to each and every person that contacts me so long as it is in an area of law I can help you with in Northern Virginia. The consult can be over the phone, by video, or in person. If I cannot help you I will let you know and will refer you to someone else if I think he/she can help you.
