A Premier Criminal Lawyer In Virginia

A short clip of a walk through natures paradise.

Attorney Vaughan C. Jones

In 1999, Jones joined the Richmond Commonwealth's Attorney's Office. As a prosecutor, Jones tried almost every type of criminal matter and participated in several of the City's highest profile cases, including a successive capital murder conviction in 2002. During his time as a lead prosecutor, Jones never lost a jury trial.

In 2004, Jones left public practice and formed the law firm Johnson Jones LLP. As a partner in that enterprise, Jones recruited several former prosecutors to his boutique criminal defense firm. The firm quickly doubled in size and ultimately defended cases across the Commonwealth. Jones won numerous trials and achieved fantastic results for his clients. His passion for the law and burning desire for justice and fairness made him a natural fit as a defense lawyer. He was named one of Virginia's legal elite in his first year of private practice.

 

Former Prosecutor Ready to Fight for Your Rights

Continuing his knack for high profile cases, in 2006, Jones was part of a legal defense team that spared the life of a man accused of a capital offense. In 2008, Jones opened a solo legal practice. As a single practitioner Jones was able to focus exclusively on his clients rather than the rigors of operating a law firm.

Continuing his professional expansion, Jones acquired a DC bar license and has tried federal trials in Richmond, Alexandria, Norfolk, Charlottesville, and West Virginia. Not afraid to fight, Jones has tried well over one hundred jury trials. Between 2016 and 2018 Jones did not lose a single trial. Attorney Jones is willing to travel to any part of the state to help his clients and has appeared in 28 of Virginia's 32 juridical districts.
