Virginia Trial Attorneys

Legal affairs touch upon the most important and intimate aspects of your life. When your business, your family, your liberty or your life is on the line, you need to know that you have capable, professional attorneys on your side who will fight for you and win. At the Bender Law Group, we have made it our business to provide high-quality, skilled and aggressive representation in the areas of Virginia criminal defense, DUI, divorce and family law, personal injury and civil litigation. Call on our skilled litigators and negotiators when you have a serious legal issue to resolve, and we’ll be there for you.

Comprehensive Virginia Criminal Law Attorneys

The attorneys at Bender Law Group gained vast experience in criminal law through working in the Lynchburg Public Defender’s office, serving as certified attorneys with the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission, and completing a legal internship with the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia in the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as years in private practice. Count on the criminal defense lawyers at Bender Law Group for knowledgeable, skilled and forceful representation in the full range of Virginia criminal offenses, from infractions and misdemeanors to the most serious felonies, including:

  • Traffic violations
  • Assault and battery
  • Possession of drugs
  • Theft and larceny
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Arson
  • Rape
  • Homicide & murder/manslaughter
  • Domestic violence
  • Federal Offenses
  • White collar crime

DUI Defense Attorneys Helping You Keep Your License

A conviction for driving under the influence can wreak havoc in your life. Virginia’s harsh drunk driving laws not only make DUI an expensive proposition; you will lose your license and face a very real possibility of jail time. The police don’t always get it right when they stop you on suspicion of drunk driving. We’ll make sure that your rights are respected, and we’ll fight for the best result to keep you from losing your license, your job and the myriad other negative consequences of a Virginia DUI. Keep your license and keep your job. Fight your DUI with our help.

Family Law

The issues decided in a Virginia divorce immediately alter your domestic relations and continue to affect you and your family in numerous ways for years into the future. We provide strong representation from the outset, making sure you are fairly represented in matters including child custody and visitation, child support and spousal support, and the division of marital property. We’ll work with you and your partner’s attorney to create practical marital settlement agreements that meet your needs, or we’ll forcefully litigate any contested matter that can’t be resolved outside of the courtroom. Call our office for help with divorce, custody, paternity, prenuptial agreements and other important aspects of Virginia domestic relations law.

Civil Litigation

In business generally and in construction especially, time is money, and every day spent stuck in a dispute is a financial loss coming out of somebody’s pockets. We work swiftly to resolve disputes including breach of contract or tort claims such as fraud and unfair practices. Our firm has particular expertise in the enforcement of mechanic’s liens and resolution of construction disputes in Richmond and surrounding areas.

Personal Injury

Your life can change in an instant. A personal injury can put you out of work and in the hospital, wondering how you’re going to pay for your medical care and put food on the table. We build a strong case proving the negligent party’s liability to you for the full amount of your damages, so that we can negotiate a fair settlement from a position of strength or take your case before a jury as needed. We prepare every case as though it were headed for trial, and we never compromise when it’s not in your best interests.

Client Testimonials

“I hired David as my lawyer and he did an amazing job. This was my first time getting in trouble for anything. I was wrongly accused of assault and battery on an officer and disorderly conduct. During the process I was very frustrated with any and everything that had to do with my case.”


“I have known Elliott Bender for over 15 years and work closely with him on very serious cases, both criminal and civil. He never gives up the fight. His associate, David Reinhardt, is a very knowledgeable and articulate counselor that I refer the most difficult civil cases too. This firm is top notch!”

Helen B..

“I hired David to represent me for a felony traffic violation that I'd incurred as an out-of-state resident. David went above and beyond expectations to work very hard on my behalf to get my charge amended to a misdemeanor conviction.”


“I contacted David after I received a charge that would definitely affect my employment. He laid everything out very coherently as was straight up with everything from the start. He definitely did his research and was prepared for my case which had a lot of variables in it.”


“It may not have seemed like a big deal to you but it was to me. Thank you so much for your help with my legal problem! You are excellent counsel and got me a good result. I hope this small token of appreciate shows my gratitude.”

Attorney B..

“I want to thank you for all the time and hard work you spent on my latest incidents. Your advice guided me on the right track in order to receive minimum punishment. You saved what could have been the worst senior year imagined due to poor and stupid decision making. You are truly the “miracle man“.”
