A motion to quash is a formal request to have a prior order or ruling invalidated, nullified or voided. It is applicable in both civil and criminal matters. This type of request can only be made in certain circumstances and is usually, but not always, presented before the case goes to trial in a higher court.
Firm founder Phillip B. Leiser has been practicing law in Virginia since 1997. Over the course of his career, Phillip has handled many complex litigation cases and has argued his clients’ cases before various juries and trial courts throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, Washington, D.C., and as far away as Boston, Massachusetts. He has handled cases at both the trial and appellate level, including the Virginia Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Phillip isn’t afraid to think outside the box — he constantly searches for creative and effective ways to resolve cases.
Phillip began his legal career at the Washington, D.C., law firm of Shaw Pittman (now Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP), where he worked in the nuclear regulatory field. After two years, Phillip ventured out on his own and began to build his own practice in Northern Virginia as a trial attorney. Since then, he has handled numerous complex litigation matters throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, Washington, D.C., and on occasion in other states.
