Danville was once the capital of the Confederate States of America. Now it is known as the city of churches because it has more churches in each square mile than any other place in Virginia. Danville is an independent city that is home to 49,000 residents which recently saw the closure of Dan River Industries, one of the world’s largest textile mills.
Danville is home to enough industry that you can find some very reputable Virginia lawyers. Lawyers in Danville advise their clients on a mixed selection of cases including Chapter 7 bankruptcy, malpractice, divorce, immigration, and criminal cases like DUI and felony charges.
Recently, Danville resident Stuart Lee White was charged for second-degree murder and use of a firearm during felony. White awoke to the sound of breaking glass, grabbed his gun and went to the living room where he found Richard Totherow breaking into the apartment. Totherow fled when he saw White with the gun. White allegedly gave chase to the burglar and fired a shot at Totherow who was hit and died the next morning.
If you have criminal charges pending against you in Danville, you will likely be visiting the Danville General District Court or the Danville Circuit Court which are both in Danville, Virginia. District courts exclusively rule on juvenile, traffic, and DUI cases but take many other case types. If your small claims case exceeds $4,500 than you should file with the circuit court. Circuit courts have jurisdiction over criminal, domestic relations, mental health, real property, contracts, and tort cases.
