Attorney Vaughan C. Jones

Former Prosecutor Ready to Fight for Your Rights

As a former prosecutor, Criminal Defense Attorney Vaughan C. Jones has effectively represented hundreds clients charged with crimes in Virginia. His success is the result of hard-work, dedication, courtroom advocacy skills, and experience.

Background & Experience

After law school, Jones served in one of the seven legal clerkships at the Virginia Supreme Court, the highest appellate court in the Commonwealth of Virginia. In 1997, he used his exclusive position to acquire a position as an Assistant Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Virginia. As an Assistant Attorney General, Jones represented the Governor of Virginia, the Virginia Parole Board, and was special counsel to the Virginia Department of Corrections.

In those capacities, Jones developed a keen understanding of federal practice that would serve him well in later years. In state court, Jones appeared as the attorney of record across a wide variety of cases in Virginia and eventually acquired a wealth of knowledge concerning statewide local customs and practices.

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.

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.
