Daniel Leavitt is an extremely knowledgeable and efficient attorney. He is very clear and talks you through the entire process so that your questions are answered and worries minimized. We followed his directions and with his courtroom expertise-we had a completely positive outcome. Huge thanks to you Mr Leavitt.

Leavitt and Martin produced excellent results for me. I am a Florida Resident and received a very serious traffic ticket in Virginia that could have resulted in a huge fine and possible suspension of License. I did not even have to return to Virginia. The firm was able to go to court for me and got the charges reduced to a much lesser charge.

Corey Martin was extremely professional. He took up my case immediately when I reached out to him. He sent me an email with detailed instructions on what I needed to do next. I followed his instructions and sent him the documentation he requested from me. On the court date, he sent me an email saying that my case was dismissed. There is nothing more that the attorney could have done to make it easier and convenient for me. I was happy with the level of service provided and I would very highly recommend this team of attorneys!

Daniel Leavitt was very professional, prompt, and caring in all of his interactions with me. He was the only lawyer that took the time to ask me about the particulars of my case, and thought outside the box for how to address those particulars. He took the time to have me give a character reference and a detailed testimony, and he was very considerate of my time and availability as an elementary school teacher. He cost more than other lawyers I called, but he made me feel the most confident and I know I made the right choice. He had my case dismissed and I am so grateful!

Daniel was very well recommended to me by 2 other attorneys in the state and as soon as I sent the email, I received quick and thoughtful responses. He was very clear about what could happen to me, so I did everything he recommended and after the court results, I couldn't be happier. My case, which was serious, has been reduced to a simple traffic violation and now I can rest easy because the anguish is over. Thanks Dan and Corey, you guys are awesome.

Matt went above and beyond to handle my case. I received a speeding ticket at King & Queens county and I am not a local in that area. Matt not only handled my Speeding ticket, but also took care of my inspection ticket as well (which I had completely forgotten I received). Matt is quick to communicate and was able to reduce my speeding ticket to a non-moving violation(which is what I had hoped for) and completely dropped the inspection ticket. Do not hesitate to Call Matt, especially if you're not a local! Thanks Matt!

Mr Pinsker is very professional and very responsive. He was the first Attorney who I contacted that responded to me. With his representation, I got a misdemeanor charge of Reckless Driving reduced significantly to the non-criminal ordinary traffic infraction of Speeding and I am more than happy with the outcome. In my opinion, he is very reasonably priced and I highly recommend him to anyone that requires representation for speeding or reckless driving.

Matt Pinsker is one of the best lawyers I’ve ever dealt with. I’ve had him represent me twice. I was worried about both of them and the consequences I would receive but he eased my mind and told me exactly what he could do. He’s an absolute BEAST and would Highly recommend him to anyone. Hopefully I won’t have any other issues but if I do I know who to call. Thanks Matt! #MVP

He was very helpful and helped me out alot he was very quick to reply to any questions I had and got me out of my reckless with just about nothing to owe highly recommend!

Mr. Pinsker is a professional who provided our son with superb advice and representation. Highly recommend Pinsker Law!

Mr. Weiland, I used the court's online system and paid the fine this morning -- It is so nice having this reckless driving incident behind me and the outcome (Defective Equipment and no Points) was much more favorable than I had expected! I was very fortunate that I had the Law Firm of Weiland Upton representing me and I am truly grateful to you and your staff. I will always highly recommend your Law Firm to anyone I know who needs similar legal representation in Virginia. Your fee was very reasonable and the results were outstanding -- thanks again. Michael McCool

John Weiland was my attorney for my 3rd driving on a suspended offense. He worked miracles and got it reduced to driving without a license with a $10 fine. Smoothest lawyer I've ever met, not to mention a super nice guy! I highly recommend Mr. Weiland!! His law partner, Ms. Upton, is also really great as well!

I had a misdemeanor charge that wouldn’t land me in jail but would’ve been embarrassing and not something I’d ideally care to have on a record or care to explain to future prospective employers I spoke with the attorneys at Weiland/ Upton Firstly with Nick and I was represented in court by John Weiland Within an hour I was walking out with a dismissal of the case ! Less than $80 court costs and it was done , like it never happened The fees were reasonable and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire John again His relationships with the local legal community are extremely valuable and he helped me out BIG TIME !

I'm a professional driver and was faced with a career ending charge .After numerous Google searches and phone calls to attorneys that netted nothing that was comfortable for me. I was fortunate to come across Samantha Upton and it was nothing short of divine intervention. She put me at complete ease right from the beginning about my situation with her confidence , professionalism, and knowledge. Not being from this area and not having to show up to court saved me time and energy which allowed me to continue to work in peace. It's also important to note that Samantha Upton exceeded my expectations not just as an attorney, but as a human being. In this wild world that all of us are a part of it is extremely comforting to know that there are people who not only do what they say...they exceed what they say. I am thankful!

Attorney Nick Wright provided invaluable legal advice and representation in my speeding charge in Emporia, VA being dismissed. I highly recommend Nick, and Weiland and Upton, and will retain them should I need legal representation in the area in the future.

I hired Michael Hartley to represent my son in a significant speeding ticket with 6 points. Michael successfully got the ticket reduced to faulty equipment, which has NO POINTS!!! He was a miracle worker!!

Picked up a speeding ticket in VA while coming back from vacation. Vanessa was great to work with from start to finish. She kept me informed during every step and was able to have the ticket reduced! I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of help.

I obtained Ms. Hicks services 3 days prior to my court date for allegedly going 87 in a 70 zone in VA. Due to an emergency, I could not appear. She responded to my inquiry the same day. She was very knowledgeable and confident; and any worries I had she definitely assuaged. She answered all of my questions and gave me the possible outcomes so that I knew what to expect. In the end she was able to have my case dismissed entirely, and that is definitely well worth the fee. Although I hope I never have to go through another experience like this again, Ms. Hicks definitely made it pleasant and less stressful. Thank you so much!!

Mrs. Hicks really understood the law concerning traffic cases in the state of Virginia. She has several years of experience and it shows. She also knew the court system and how best to go about getting the right deal made with the judge. She asked very specific, to-the-point questions. She gave us options for getting things into place prior to the court date that truly helped. I would recommend her to anyone who is dealing with a traffic case in Virginia.

Vanessa was so helpful in resolving a citation I received in Virginia. I had never been in the state and was unfamiliar with the laws and penalties for a driving offense. She went out of her way to provide solutions and guidance to ensure that the matter was resolved in the most positive manner possible. I would highly recommend Vanessa but hope I do not need her for a traffic citation ever again. Cindy Harris

Highly recommend Mr. Curcione. His price was great for the work he did. Reached him multiple times about my case and he helped me all the way through it. He took care of me and helped me saved a lot of money. Mr. Crucione is a great man and cares about his clients, if you need help don’t hesitate!

I was having a really hard time dealing with my legal issues so I sought out an attorney. Matthew Curcione had amazing reviews. So, I put my info in on his website and he was very quick to call and talk with me to set up a meeting. This was my first time dealing with anything like this; I had no idea what to expect. I went to our consult and he was very direct and kind, but without all the fluff. He was straight to the point and honest. He also charges very fair prices. I was worried about how much this would all end up costing. I can't speak for everyone, but he charged me a flat rate and allowed me to put half down and make another payment of the other half. He was always quick to respond to my emails. I ended up needing a continuance, which he guided me through and as soon as I left the court I was freaked out. The judge wasn't happy with me filing a continuance with my letter of representation. He called me two minutes after I sent an email explaining how everything went down and how freaked out I was. He calmed me down and told me not to worry about it. We communicated through email up until shortly before my court date. He set up another meeting and walked me through my testimony. Telling me what he was going to ask and how he wanted me to answer. He was very thorough and again, straight to the point all while still being kind. My court date comes around, he showed up forty five minutes prior to my court time to go over everything one more time. I think he could tell how absolutely terrified I was, so after we went over everything he just talked to me like a person. Normal talk that really helped me calm down. He was kind to me. I ended up not even needing to go to the stand because the witness never showed. So my case was dismissed. I really recommend him. Even though I didn't have to go up to the stand I knew he was ready to defend my case. I felt good about him as my attorney. He is a good man who really cares about his clients.

Excellent attorney, excellent service, excellent communication, fair prices. Would highly recommend Mr. Curcione for anyone needing legal services in his area of expertise. I was faced with a very serious situation that would have not only impacted myself but also my son (whom I have sole custody of) due to unforeseen circumstances. He worked the case, keeping me in the loop as everything progressed and was in fact able to resolve perfectly and thereby protected our livelihood and future.

Attorney Curcione literally saved my life. I am currently active duty military, Navy to be precise, with 10 years of service. In December 2018, I was involved in an unfortunate altercation, which led to a Class 3 Felony Malicious Wounding charge, and put my career and my family’s future in jeopardy. From the initial consultation, Mr. Curcione assured my wife and I that he would do everything is his power to take care of me, and ensure that my career wouldn’t be jeopardized. He was very proactive and aggressive in obtaining all the necessary evidence in order to build a strong defense. After 11 months and many well represented court appearances, on November 25, 2019, I was able to stand in front of a Norfolk judge with Mr. Curcione standing beside me, and get my charge dismissed. He is definitely the attorney you want in your corner if you’re going to court for whatever reason. He kept his word from day one, and because of that, I’ll be able to continue my military career. My family and I are extremely thankful for his services, and we highly recommend him to everyone!!

Mr. Curcione is an exceptional lawyer. He worked to get me the best outcome from my case and was exceedingly pleasant when we met. He explained anything I didn't understand and kept me informed on what are some possibilities that could happen in my case. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer!

I went to our consult and he was very direct and kind, but without all the fluff. He was straight to the point and honest. He also charges very fair prices. I was worried about how much this would all end up costing. I can't speak for everyone, but he charged me a flat rate and allowed me to put half down and make another payment of the other half. He was always quick to respond to my emails. I ended up needing a continuance, which he guided me through and as soon as I left the court I was freaked out. The judge wasn't happy with me filing a continuance with my letter of representation. He called me two minutes after I sent an email explaining how everything went down and how freaked out I was. He calmed me down and told me not to worry about it. We communicated through email up until shortly before my court date. He set up another meeting and walked me through my testimony. Telling me what he was going to ask and how he wanted me to answer. He was very thorough and again, straight to the point all while still being kind. My court date comes around, he showed up forty five minutes prior to my court time to go over everything one more time. I think he could tell how absolutely terrified I was, so after we went over everything he just talked to me like a person. Normal talk that really helped me calm down. He was kind to me. I ended up not even needing to go to the stand because the witness never showed. So my case was dismissed. I really recommend him. Even though I didn't have to go up to the stand I knew he was ready to defend my case. I felt good about him as my attorney. He is a good man who really cares about his clients.

    Excellent attorney, excellent service, excellent communication, fair prices. Would highly recommend Mr. Curcione for anyone needing legal services in his area of expertise. I was faced with a very serious situation that would have not only impacted myself but also my son (whom I have sole custody of) due to unforeseen circumstances. He worked the case, keeping me in the loop as everything progressed and was in fact able to resolve perfectly and thereby protected our livelihood and future.

    Attorney Curcione literally saved my life. I am currently active duty military, Navy to be precise, with 10 years of service. In December 2018, I was involved in an unfortunate altercation, which led to a Class 3 Felony Malicious Wounding charge, and put my career and my family’s future in jeopardy. From the initial consultation, Mr. Curcione assured my wife and I that he would do everything is his power to take care of me, and ensure that my career wouldn’t be jeopardized. He was very proactive and aggressive in obtaining all the necessary evidence in order to build a strong defense. After 11 months and many well represented court appearances, on November 25, 2019, I was able to stand in front of a Norfolk judge with Mr. Curcione standing beside me, and get my charge dismissed. He is definitely the attorney you want in your corner if you’re going to court for whatever reason. He kept his word from day one, and because of that, I’ll be able to continue my military career. My family and I are extremely thankful for his services, and we highly recommend him to everyone!!

He explained anything I didn't understand and kept me informed on what are some possibilities that could happen in my case. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer!

Mr. James Short is dedicated and motivated. He listens to your input and also gives you great input to come up with a solution to winning your case. His honesty and knowledge about criminal and divorce is why I chose Mr. Short and I'm glad I did. Ms. Karen his paralegal is top notch, easy to talk to and does her job well. When you speak to many lawyers you will know the ones that has your best interest in mind. Thank you Brother and please continue doing what you do.

My son was charged with Reckless Driving-Speeding and Racing. This was the first time he has ever been in any trouble therefore I didn’t know how to pick a Lawyer. I found Mr. Short online and decided to pick him due to all the positive reviews I read. I can honestly say that the reviews were all true. He told us the truth and he made this a very easy process. He took time to learn about my son and our family. He stayed in contact with us leading up to court and checked on my son a few days after court. I noticed after the court cases ended, clients went one way and Attorneys the other, but not Mr . Short. He stayed with us until we were finished at the Clerks desk and was ready to exit the building. This is not just a job for him. He truly cares about his clients. If you are looking for an Attorney who is not in it just for the money and really cares about his clients, then Mr. Short is your man.

Very informative and skilled lawyer. Had great reviews for handling similar cases for my son's. Communication was great, always receive a return call if not readily available. If not fully dismissing, he definitely lessens the charges. Just wished more digging of loopholes or questioning of the officer's actions leading to arrest. Still recommend!

Hired him on two separate occasions to represent my son. Service and attention to detail is top notch. Communication back and forth was great! I called several lawyers before hiring him and he and his staff were the most personable and made me feel comfortable. He isn’t the most cheap nor the most expensive. But the experience is well worth it. I will be coming back if I ever need his services again.

My mom, the matriarch of our family, wife of 65 years, and mother of 10, had a rare ischemic stroke in Aug 2017, which left her hospitalized for the last year and my dad to pick up the pieces with my assistance, as his POA. Although my mom recently passed, I wanted to share my experience with Attorney James Short because it could help somebody else. As you know, tragedies bring out the worst in people, especially large families. Shortly after my mother’s stroke, I encountered a serious altercation with two of my brothers that turned violent and left me desecrated with false charges. I met Attorney James Short through the Virginia Lawyer referral service. When I talked to Attorney Short for the first time, he was very clear, concise, and complete in his analysis of my case. He informed me of the challenges and risks I was facing based on the direction i chose of the options he presented. Attorney Short and his staff’s handling of my case was impeccable! They were available when I needed to ask questions or just to vent, as this was a very traumatic event in me and my family’s lives. His legal assistant, Karen, was very professional, helpful and responsive throughout the entire process. In addition, customer service was awesome. Attorney Short was able to get all parties involved to come to an amicable agreement, which left me free of the false charges that could have ruined my clean criminal history. Attorney Short’s biggest attribute is his ability to present his clients with a well rounded perspective of their case and he doesn’t sugar coat the truth to gain business. In the courtroom, He is thorough, exudes confidence, and communicates with excellence in his presentation. In addition, his fees are fair market value and his knowledge and familiarity with the court system exceeds expectation, which makes it well worth the cost in regards to the level of service and support received in return. I’d highly recommend Attorney James Short to my family or friends and hope that he’d be available in the event I had another criminal matter to deal with in the state of Virginia.

I could’ve saved myself $500 and represented myself. He was stuttering looked very unprofessional. I honestly think he was on some type of medication or something. He looked like he didn’t know what he was doing. The judge was laughing at him. He didn’t even really speak to me before court it was brief and he said to let him do all the talking. It was a train wreck. I knew I made the wrong decision in a lawyer when I saw him representing a man before me and he looked like he didn’t know what he was doing. He also told me to wait for him after court I waited almost an hour and he wasn’t there. I feel like I got taken advantage of and honestly I want my money back. I’m never going to hire an attorney again without meeting them first. ABSOLUTE DUMPSTER FIRE.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my court case. Mr.Dunnigan was very compassionate and did A fantastic job representing me. Would definitely recommend him . Thank you so much.

It has been about 5 years since Brian Dunnigan took my case. I have needed a lawyer a few times in my life. It seems that I always had to guide the lawyer on which way to go... They just never seemed to have the same desire to set things right for me as I did.. I guess it just boiled down to the amount of hours I spent thinking about my cases and how to beat them vs the time my lawyers spent thinking about them.. However, when Brian stood up and presented my case, he blew me away. He was so well prepared and obviously put in the time. That was Brian the Lawyer. Brian the man did something to help me, outside of the case, that changed me forever. He showed me that there are actually people out there that really do things for others, just to help... no ulterior motives, no agenda... Just simply because they see someone that needs help. Great Lawyer, Great Man. Definitely 5 stars.

Very helpful very professional friendlymade them feel that you can really trust them to handle any legal problems we had.

They are so unprofessional I spent $1,500 and didn’t get any results I wouldn’t recommend him to no one!
