The law firm founded by former Virginia Beach public defenders has won dismissals in multiple high profile cases.

Westendorf & Khalaf, PLLC, attorneys dedicated solely to the practice of criminal defense, are proud to announce that partners Bassel Khalaf and Taite Westendorf have both been named Top Lawyers for 2020 by Coastal Virginia Magazine and CoVaBIZ. The law firm has represented clients in numerous cases receiving national media attention including winning dismissals of all charges for a former Virginia Beach city employee who was charged after he was told he would have to go back to work in a building where a mass shooting occurred and winning dismissal of all charges for an Uber driver falsely accused of rape.

“While we measure our firm's success by outstanding results in the courtroom rather than by awards, we are pleased to be named to the 2020 Top Lawyers list,” Mr. Westendorf said. "We both live in Virginia Beach. We were both long time public defenders defending clients every day in the Virginia Beach courts. This is our home and that's why we're committed to helping people in our area. We appreciate being recognized by our peers for our work serving those in need.”

In addition, Bassel Khalaf, has been selected as a 2020 Rising Star by Virginia Super Lawyers. Only 5% of attorneys in Virginia receive the Super Lawyers distinction and only 2.5% are recognized as Rising Stars. "The proudest moments in my career are when I've had the privilege of fighting the government and winning my clients' freedom," said Mr. Khalaf. "This is a nice recognition, and I look forward to continuing building our practice providing top-notch criminal defense services."
