My son was the victim of an assault by a juvenile and I retained Ms. Tuomey to obtain a protective order against the assailant in Arlington County Juvenile Court. As an attorney myself, I know exactly what to look for in counsel and she has what one needs. She navigated the juvenile justice system in a highly knowledgeable fashion at every stage of the proceeding, which involved the parallel juvenile case against the defendant. Of particular significance, she knows the other players in system. The prosecutor, police officers and, most importantly, the judge, all know her by name. I give Ms. Tuomey my unqualified recommendation in her field.
