David E. Boone

Boone Beale, PLLC

Boone Beale is a premier regional law firm that is rated "AV (Preeminent)" by Martindale Hubbell the highest possible rank for professional ability and ethical standards based on evaluations by other members of the bar and the judiciary.

Furthermore, our attorneys have regularly been spotlighted in Super Lawyers magazine for their excellence. David E. Boone has been recognized as one of the best lawyers in the business for seven (7) years in a row in the field of criminal defense.

As a young boy growing up in Northern Virginia, David E. Boone was fascinated with two television shows: Sky King and Perry Mason. One depicted a ranch owner who owned an airplane and flew to various adventures whereas the other featured a famed criminal defense attorney who relished the courtroom. Growing into adulthood, David emulated both. Today, David has logged over 3,000 hours flying his V tailed Bonanza to various locales around the country, including desolate islands in the Caribbean. And he has logged even more hours in courtrooms throughout Virginia and other states, defending people who have been accused of everything from murder to corporate fraud.

J. Burkhardt Beale

Boone Beale, PLLC

J. Burkhardt "Burk" Beale is an attorney dedicated to the practice of DUI/DWI and criminal defense. Burk has been successfully representing his clients for a period of 33 years, and brings to the table more than just an impressive resume he brings knowledge and experience as well as a creative mindset to provide his clients with the best possible defense.

A lifetime resident of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Burk graduated from the University of Virginia in 1977 with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in psychology and government. He obtained his law degree from the Washington and Lee University School of Law in 1980. Burk was the third generation of his family to graduate from W&L School of Law.

Pursuing a career in criminal defense, Burk initially gained some experience with a Richmond law firm before joining David Boone in January, 1982, where he gradually earned a reputation for zealous advocacy.

Today, he continues to concentrate in the areas of DUI or DWI law, traffic law and all types of criminal defense cases in both state and federal courts. As DUI law is a specialized field, Burk found it necessary to become a certified breath test operator and a field sobriety test instructor conducting field sobriety tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) to know everything a police officer is taught to do so he can prepare a better legal defense for his clients.
