Protecting Virginia's Natural Resources
We believe wholeheartedly in the protection of our precious natural resources - so much so that Richard Railey, Jr. served on the Board of Directors of the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries for two years.
Game Violation Defense - Know Your Rights
Hunting and fishing laws exist to protect us and our resources, but that does not mean that law enforcement mistakes don't occur. Like our personal injury practice and our traffic offense practice, we urge Virginia residents and non-residents to know both the laws and their rights.
Know Where to Hunt and When
Virginia Laws cover subjects such as wildlife management areas, hunting on public land, managed and quote hunts, and particularly season limits and geographical considerations. Know your hunting rights and the laws that control them.
Know Where to Fish and When
Just like hunting laws, sportsmen should be aware of Virginia fishing regulations. This applies to fresh and saltwater regulations. Fishermen needs to understand where as well as when they can take certain species as well as size limits.
