We are not like other law firms.
When you retain the criminal defense team at Invictus Law, you are hiring former prosecutors with years of experience on the other side of the court room. We stay one step ahead of the prosecutors because we all know what it was like to be one. Our team is also rich in military experience. We were raised in military families. We have prior service Army and Marine Corps “JAGs” that have practiced law and defended our country all over the globe. We have former fighter pilots, airborne soldiers, and operational law attorneys with years of combat service. This makes us different. This makes us ready for every fight.
The Invictus Law Criminal Defense Team, led by Shemeka Hankins, defended our client’s rights in a jury trial in the Portsmouth Circuit Court.
Client was charged with Aggravated Malicious Wounding and Stabbing in the Commission of a Felony for an incident that happened in January of 2022. After deliberating for less than 30 mins, the jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty. We appreciate the citizens of Portsmouth for finding the just result. We are proud our client retains her freedom and will continue to serve our country in the armed forces.
NOT-GUILTY OF 2ND DEGREE MURDER JURY VERDICT
After less than 10 minutes of deliberation, a Norfolk Circuit Court jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY on a charge of 2nd Degree Murder in the case of a Norfolk resident youth. Our client, now 18 years of age, was arrested and charged as an adult with a crime occurring nearly a year prior when he was a juvenile. Family and friends gathered in the courtroom as our client stood next to his attorney, Brandon K. Fellers, as the verdict was read. Mr. Fellers, a former Chesapeake prosecutor, was confident that the Jury would agree with his legal analysis and arguments and find the youth NOT GUILTY. During the 2 day jury trial, Mr. Fellers exposed the deficits in the government’s case and surgically cross examined witnesses, ultimately securing the NOT GUILTY verdict.

The Invictus law team went above and beyond in such a short time to reach the best outcome for me...
Never been a position to need a lawyer before, and I hope to never be again. My case was last minute, and the Invictus law team went above and beyond in such a short time to reach the best outcome for me. Would definitely recommend.
I cannot express my gratitude and how thankful I am to Mr. Leckey and all of his staff...
Initially, when I reached out, Jean was very kind, understand, and made me feel at ease. Victoria, was prompt and able to give feedback very quickly, as these types of cases are very sensitive in nature. I was always greeted with respect and the process was smooth. Mr. Leckey won our case and as I result, and with documentation I was able to keep my position that was approved by Office of Secretary of Defense. That was an anxious time for me, but in the end, Mr. Leckey ensured that with the presenting facts, the Judge would rule in my favor, and he did. The expungement process was filed the day of a 'not guilty' verdict and I could not have done this without Invictus Law.
I am extremely satisfied with this law firm from professionalism to the outcome of my case...
I was facing 11years and a few months for 2criminal charges and Ms.Hankins worked with the prosecutors to reduce charges and jail time all the way down to 90days and couple years good behavior probation
Money well spent...they say you have to pay for quality and quality is what I received thank you to the whole invictus law firm family
