At the Law Office of B. Thomas Bledsoe, I take defending your rights seriously. Over 95% of criminal charges are resolved by a guilty plea, with or without some type of plea agreement. In any given case, a guilty plea may be the best course of action but you need an experienced attorney to guide you through the process and fight to protect your rights. With over a decade of experience practicing criminal law, I will fight to protect your rights. A criminal or traffic charge can have a wide variety of negative consequences.You need an experienced, aggressive attorney to help. As a former prosecutor for six years, including a time as the acting Commonwealth's Attorney for Nottoway County, I have the experience and determination you need in an advocate.
I am a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and the University of Richmond School of Law in 2006. Licensed in Virginia since October 2006, I have prosecuted and defended criminal cases, almost exclusively.
That combination of experience, at VMI, in the United States Navy, and in private industry, before becoming an attorney has given me a better perspective on your needs as a client. I worked as an Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney and as the acting Commonwealth's Attorney in Nottoway County before entering private practice.
If you have been charged with a criminal offense, whether a felony or a misdemeanor, or a traffic infraction, you need to understand your rights and the potential range of consequences.
Based in Richmond, Virginia, I practice throughout Central Virginia, including the Counties of Nottoway, Powhatan, Amelia, Prince Edward, Lunenburg, and Mecklenburg.
