Being charged with a crime can be a frightening and confusing experience, one that can have a negative impact on your wallet, your freedom and your future. When facing criminal charges, you need a lawyer who understands the charges you face, the courts in which you will be tried and the judges and prosecutors who will hear your case. This knowledge can be vital during your search for favorable resolutions to these matters, and can potentially limit the penalties stemming from a conviction.
At the Law Office of Vaavia Edwards, I — Attorney Vaavia Edwards — have nearly 15 years of experience offering aggressive criminal defense representation to clients in Amarillo, Texas, and throughout the Panhandle. Whether you face drunk driving charges or have been stopped for drugs on I-40, I offer the criminal defense guidance you need to clearly state your case or negotiate a favorable plea to limit the harm done to your future.
Over the years, I have developed strategies for addressing various criminal charges, including both felonies and misdemeanors. My experience has allowed me to provide guidance to clients facing a wide array of charges, including:
Drunk driving (DWI)
Drug offenses, including manufacturing, illegal possession and sale of methamphetamines, crack-cocaine and marijuana
Assault and battery
Robbery and theft
Forgery and fraud
I also help individuals with expungements and record sealing. I work to help you avoid hefty fines, loss of driving privileges, drivers license surcharges, jail time and a lasting criminal record by negotiating a favorable plea agreement if possible or through assertive court room representation if you wish to take your case to trial. I have experience trying hundreds of jury trials and have a reputation for getting successful results. If it is in your best interests, I will assertively fight for you at trial.
Whether a plea bargain or going to trial is in your best interests, you can count on Vaavia Edwards to assertively and aggressively defend
