Representing Clients for Trespass Violations
At Darren Meyer, Attorney at Law, we represent clients charged with trespassing. An individual may trespass on private property without realizing it. For example, a notice or sign may have been posted in an obscure spot or could have fallen down or been removed.
Mr. Meyer will listen to every detail surrounding the alleged trespass and defend you against the charge. If convicted, you could face serious consequences such as:
- A criminal record
- High fines
- Jail time
The severity of the penalties depend on certain factors: whether “no trespassing” signs were posted on the property, whether the trespasser was a child or adult, or whether this was the first time the individual trespassed, to name a few. Mr. Meyer will candidly discuss your options with you. Schedule a consultation with him today.
Fredericksburg Lawyer Defending Against Destruction of Property
Darren Meyer also defends against destruction of property and other property crimes. Commonly known as vandalism, destruction of property involves intentionally destroying, damaging, defacing or removing property of another person. Vandalism can take many forms, such as:

- A trampled bed of flowers
- Slashed tires on a bike
What might seem like a practical joke may have serious consequences down the road. Depending on the amount of damage, you could face time in jail and high monetary damages. Mr. Meyer will investigate every detail of your property damage charge and provide a high level of representation.
