I was hesitant to hire an attorney to represent me in my DUI charge. The case seemed straightforward, so why not just plead guilty and save the attorney fee. Fortunately, I did hire Mr Anderson. Things happened, technicalities appeared. Mr. Anderson then proceeded to negotiate my conviction down from a 2nd DUI, to a reckless driving conviction, This result was hugely more favorable for me. Thank you Mr. Anderson for doing your job well.

This Law Practice is incredibly professional and very caring. Mr. Anderson and his assistant Kim made sure I was kept in the loop. They always addressed my worries and took my thoughts into consideration. Mr. Anderson being a former prosecutor knew all the laws and all the "strategies" of the prosecution. He ran all scenarios by me and went over all possible outcomes with me. In the end he got everything dismissed and made sure I understood the legal talk and legal codes. I am very satisfied by the representation I received. I could tell they believed in me and knew I was innocent from the beginning. This was reflected by the frequency of updates I recieved and the heartfelt phone calls by Kim, the office manager. They are a great legal team and great human beings. Thank you beyond words to Bob and Kim for giving me my life back!!! Previous comment of 50K retainer....I call lie!!!!

Fantastic lawyer, doesn’t make promises but does everything he can to help his clients. Would highly recommend to anybody in a criminal situation. Best lawyer in Virginia and knows what he is doing.

I hired Robert D Anderson to defend my child against some adolescent crimes. Robert is a true professional and gave us a true expectation of what to expect. While other attorneys promise the world, Robert promised he would do it best. I quickly learned that his best was better than all of the other attorneys. He was able to bring up points of law that allowed my child to avoid very serious charges. If you're charged with a crime I would recommend that you go to no one but Robert D Anderson.

He's nice in the beginning as soon as he gets his money he's going to be rude and nasty and having a bad attitude he screwed up my case and I have to call the police for him and he would draw from my case and wouldn't give me my file back. Stay away from him find a good lawyer he's the worst I would have give him a zero stars or minus Stars if I can

I highly recommend working with Nicole and her firm! They are amazing! Very professional and proactive! Love their staff and how responsive they are.

This is the second time I have used Nicole's services.....one for my oldest daughter (with great results) and now for my younger daughter for reckless driving (she actually had two high-rate of speed tickets in five weeks). As some may know, Virginia is VERY tough on speeders. We followed Nicole's recommendations and when my daughter went to court today, the outcome was much better than our most hopeful expectations. Nicole clearly is a friend of the court and has strong instincts and skills on how to approach each case she is tasked with. I feel that she has an uncommon ability to serve the interests of justice for the courts, the state and her clients. I highly recommend this very skilled and competent attorney!

Mr. Esteves was amazing did an amazing job representing me and I am just so grateful and happy for the outcome of my case! I highly recommend him! At the time of the court date he makes sure he walks you through it all with no confusion! Thank you Naum Esteves for working on my case! Much appreciated!

Mr. Robert Dellinger was fantastic in helping with my speeding ticket. We had a preplanned family trip and Mr. Dellinger handled my case while we were out of town. Resulted in a great outcome.

After I received a speeding ticket in Prince William County, a dozen lawyers sent me solicitation letters. I called a few, and Nicole was the most enthusiastic and specific about how to handle my case. I hired Nicole, and followed her instructions carefully. Nicole was thoroughly professional every step of the way, and negotiated a significantly reduced charge for me.

In my honest opinion, Mike Pignone is absolutely the best lawyer in Virginia. He’s gotten me out of risks to my livelihood with two big charges. I was happy with his professionalism and work ethic. I would definitely recommend him to anyone without hesitation. Keep fighting the good fight!

Michael Pignone is my referral for anyone, any time, any charge and any incident. His law knowledge is incredible, his defense mode argument is backed up with pure confidence and he is a very well spoken and intelligent attorney. If you need an attorney that actually gives a damn about your freedom, than do whatever you can to obtain Michael Pignone! I have retained him for several criminal charges for myself and others. He's kicked butt and still kicking it. I'm confident in him for upcoming felony charges I'm facing and I know that he's not the man to settle, he's going to get in the ring for me and ring by ring give me a play by play. No matter what the case is he's gonna tell you what you're dealing with upfront and he doesn't waste time.

Mike was my attorney and he got me off some serious charges.It could have put me away for a very long time. I was charged with gun charges, possession, and a distro. He believed in me and knew I wasn't guilty. My charges got dropped to a possession. I would still be incarcerated without his help. Thanks again Mike Pignone you saved my life!

I got charged of a drug and Dui charge in late August of last year. I paid the initial $500 for a $3000 case for the discovery! He assured me he could get the 251 and get the dui and refusal dropped after two continuances. 5 months later after more than 6 court case dates. Micheal Pignone did not uphold his end of the deal after I paid more than $2,000, I never received the discovery! I was convicted of the dui and the drug charge! After Micheal informed me of this being my best option! I told Micheal I never had a lawyer before and he took advantage of me and took money for which his services were not properly rendered as he promised me. Every time I asked about the discovery he'd find a way to dance around my questions! He didn't even show up to 2 of my court dates and left me holding the ball talking to the judge! TO ANYONE WHO IS TRYING TO GET HIM AS A LAWYER...trust me YOUR BETTER WITH A COURT APPOINTED LAWYER! Micheal Pignone is a thief and a crook and he should be charged and convicted as a criminal!!! 6/22/2016

After consulting several law firms I chose the one I felt most comfortable with and was very pleased with the results. Mr. Crowley was excellent in listening to my needs and achieving the results. I would certainly recommend him to anyone.

When I needed representation, I had no idea where to start. After calling multiple firms, Robinson got back to me right away and scheduled a meeting within an hour. I met with a very capable and impressive paralegal first who explained how everything would work. I was soon emailed a detailed information packet that outlined every stage of the process and included even the most minute details about the judicial process. Whenever I had a question the firm got back to me that day with answers. When I met with Mr. Crowley, he allayed my fears and laid out a strategy to win. In court, Mr. Crowley explained everything in detail that was happening. He never guaranteed anything, but he honestly and accurately predicted possible outcomes. With his years of experience, he was ready for the other side's strategy, and expertly outmaneuvered them. I would highly recommend the Robinson firm and specifically Mr. Crowley. Without him, my life would be completely different today.

Mr. Crowley is a very experienced attorney. He is also very thorough with his work and is excellent. I highly recommend his legal counsel.

I would recommend Matthew Crowley for your next legal matter. He is very expirenced in criminal law. Mr. Crowley has made a huge impact on my life for handling my case so well. His practice holds itself to high standards and his team is very professional. It really feels great knowing I have Robinson Law on my side.

I was very pleased with my experience at this law firm and with hiring Matthew Crowley. I appreciated his professionalism and quickness in responses via email or text or phone call. He was extremely sympathetic, comforting, and reassuring throughout the whole process. He is definitely an experienced attorney and it showed. I'll note that I contacted his firm on the weekend and he was the first person to contact me back within the hour. I would recommend him a hundred times over.

Absolutely fantastic! For anyone facing marijuana charges, these are your guys. They got my charges dropped with little to no issues. Highly recommend this law firm!

From start to finish, I was happy with the process of securing the services of Attorney Vincenzes and the outcome was outstanding! I highly recommend Vincenzes Law.

Where do I start? I can’t say enough wonderful things about these guys. Brenton & Josh were incredible to work with & I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my case. Brenton is top notch and got me an outcome far better than I expected. Josh was on the ball every step of the way; he was extremely responsive, kept me up to date on every detail, sent me reminder texts, kept me organized and prepared and was in constant contact until things wrapped up.

Extremely responsive all around. Whenever I had a question it was answered in a timely manner. I really felt like I was a part of their family when going through my legal issue. Ended up getting my case dismissed! I could not say enough about the professionalism and family like environment.

Very thankful to have Mr. Vincenzes & Joshua on my side every step of the way throughout this process. From the beginning, Joshua was very helpful breaking down everything in detail and keeping a solid communication; creating a to-do list prior to my preliminary hearing. Mr. Vincenzes is an amazing attorney who truly understands you on a personal level and will fight completely for the best outcome. I am extremely happy with the outcome of the case, and I absolutely plan on working with Vincenzes Law for any further legal matters.

Steve is incredibly knowledgeable on many aspects of the law and has helped our friend's through some very challenging situations resulting in the best possible outcome for them.

One of the best things we did was to have Steve represent my husband. The last thing we want is to have an attorney for my situation, but all in all having an amazing attorney such as Steve Duckett made life so very much easier. Always Thank You.

Steve is an excellent attorney. I am impressed by his knowledge of the law, and 20 plus years of practical experience. Beause of understanding of new charges in the laws, he was able to have all charges against the client of mine dismissed.

Would reccomend him and his firm to anyone. Had good responsiveness from them and Steve is an all around cool guy. Make sure you can do what he tells you to do and you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

    Steve is an excellent attorney. I am impressed by his knowledge of the law, and 20 plus years of practical experience. Beause of understanding of new charges in the laws, he was able to have all charges against the client of mine dismissed.

If you want a lawyer that's going to be honest with you about your case and how to handle it Mr. Smith is your guy. He gave me the tools I needed to have my reckless driving charge turned into a speeding ticket. It was my first offense and I had know idea what was going on. See I work in the state of Virginia and but Liv in Maryland. I had know idea that driving laws for each state where so different. But thanks to Me. Smith he was able to educate me and help me to make sure I can still drive and work in Virginia.

Attorney Ron Smith was the best for my cases back in 2012 two of my cases. I was very satisfied with my results and outcome of my two cases. And my God brother's case was impossible to win but, won. I would definitely recommend him.recommend Art

I found Ron E Smith by googling and reading all the reviews. Decided to go with them. Called the office and left a message to begin with. Got a call from Mr. Smith the same day and he is to the point and explained the process quickly. Very good start. I met with him and again all went well on time. His fees are reasonable and in fact becomes cheaper when charges get dropped. Mr. Smith gave a set of instructions what needs to be accomplished before the court date. Anyone who needs a lawyer please do so immediately. I waited for a bit and contacted one month before the court date. There is quite some things needs to be done before court date so all goes well during the court date. They have a great team from the reception all the way to lawyers and they keep track. Completed all needed to be done before the court date and went to the court half hour before the time mentioned. Here also they have some kind of system where the lawyer can go to the judge whenever lawyer is free and I think depends on the charges. I don't know. So I have to wait for some time but some one will be in touch with you always. Actually it helped me to watch d the court proceedings for some time and in fact is an eye opener. I watched in awe how many people came unprepared. This particular judge is very nice and helps the accused with all the resources and explaining and at the same time following the law. People came looking unprofessional, language issues, not addressing the judge right way, attitude and especially without a lawyer etc., but judge handled them all with a smile. Then Mr. Smith came and talked to prosecutor for few minutes I believe and said my charges got dropped. Voila! He knows lot of people in the court system. They know him as well. I went in front of judge and judge said "nolle prosequi". Just one minute in front of judge. Charges dropped. I had one charge though and this is first time and is a misdemeanor. That is it! Very professional service and they have a good system in place. You have to follow what the lawyer recommends and be smart and contact the lawyer as soon as possible once you get any tickets or charges. My take is I definitely and highly recommend Ron E Smith office. Good luck to all.

Ron is truly “The Man” in Fairfax County. Not sure how reputable he is anywhere else since my case was in Fairfax, however everyone knows Ron and respects him. (Judges, police, prosecutors, other lawyers, everyone)I’d highly recommend Ron’s firm. He will not disappoint. .

Ron was effective and efficient. His entire office was great from start to finish. Highly recommend! Thank you! (Also, very cute office)

I was extremely pleased with the representation from Mr. Garrett Green in court today. From the minute I contacted him about my case he provided advice and step by step actions I could take to help my case. He was professional and was honest with the possible outcomes of my case. Most lawyers I consulted with were snobby and greedy. I’m glad I chose him, and in the end, I had the best possible outcome for my case. I highly recommend him! I hope I never have to use him personally again, but if I do, I’ll use him without a doubt.

They were able to have the court agree to dismiss the charge! Therefore, there were no court costs or fines and I was not convicted of that offense! Great service. Well organized. I was very pleased.

I wanted to thank Mr. Green for spending a few minutes yesterday on the phone to talk about my wife's speeding ticket in Prince William county. She spoke to the prosecutor as you suggested and her "20 over" was reduced to dismissal pending a Driver Improvement course. I really appreciate you honesty and timeliness. It was 5 minutes well spent. We will be back if need be.

Working with this law firm was probably the best decision I could have made given my situation. I was charged with a misdemeanor for what should have been a minor infraction. Here is how this law firm helped me out: 1. They made it easy for me to find them. After searching the ticket charge code online, the first result was by Mr Luke, that give detailed explanations of what the charge is. He even explain the potential implication for being charged for that ticket. 2. Consultation is free. Which made me feel really comfortable before I contacted them. 3. Before I actually requested their service, Mr Luke gave me great advice about how I can proceed with the case my self, without using his services to save money. It was a detailed explanation, and was highly appreciated. 4. The team is professional and organized, also very responsive. I called them 4 times, and regardless of who answered the phone, they knew what I was talking about immediately after pulling my file. 5. My whole interaction with this law firm was over the phone and email, which made it really easy and convenient for me. 6. Mr Luke got my case dismissed.

I am very satisfied and happy to have picked this firm and having worked with them. They are both very professional, accessible and very efficient! Thanks Garrett & Luke!

This is an excellent criminal law defense firm. We were for all of our criminal cases here. Tom Walsh is an excellent attorney, who is very personable and professional. There is also ample parking on the site

Mr. Petrovich is the BEST Attorney in Northern VA. He just got my company’s appealing case dismissed on a higher court at Fairfax county court. In March 2019, my Llc received two summons—1, smoke detector without a battery; 2, mis-use a commercial property. The smoke detector made noise to warn that the battery was out of status so I went to the store to buy new ones; while my friend (visited me) was in the office arranging her belongings for preparing a long trip back home in NH( I accepted that I would give her a ride to bus station when it’s off my biz hours). At the moment, I was out for buying a battery, meanwhile, the inspectors entered in. I didn’t understand why I received summons after a week for those two accusations. I couldn’t help when the battery in the smoker detector was died, so what I could do was to go get a new one immediately and put in which I did. And my friend wasn’t staying overnight at the commercial property, she just temporarily dropped by and asked for a ride from me off office hours. I have a receipt of batteries and my friend has a bus ticket to display the facts. I hired a lawyer from Leesburg VA to represent me my company. I explained to him in oral and written manners. On the First court day, he wasn’t appearing on court (never inform me that he was unable to appear), but he had another so-called lawyer to represent me. That so-called lawyer reviewed my case at the last min and said not to do it. My case was postponed to a month later, the lawyer from Leesburg VA eventually appeared, after talking to prosecutor, then told me that my company should accept these two accusations and pay a fine to save my friend (who was tied to mis use commercial property) out of the trouble. Why?! My friend and I were not mis used the office, why I had to accept it and pay a fine. It’s not justice for me. The lawyer did a favor to authority and prosecutor, not for me.I lost my company’s case under the first lawyer’s representation at lower court. I wrote this long paragraph is to state that not every lawyer would take time or patient or care or fight authorities for their clients’ justices. But I still believe there are good ones in the legal system at Fairfax county court are willing to carry out Supreme law which has been existing for over two hundred years, and which was the founding fathers of the country fought for, while were not just there for doing favors to authorities. I decided to appeal. I spent pretty much time on research for a professional attorney in the area for my appealing case, so luckily I found Mr. Petrovich. After the first time—free consultation, I knew that he was the one could help. He was serious of looking into every aspect of my case to seek the facts which can make it justice for my appealing case. My instinct was Just right. Mr. Petrovich made greater efforts and fought for me, so he and I won the case on the higher court. The attorney as Mr. Petrovich is precious. Thanks!

Facing frightening, embarrassing, and unfamiliar legal options, attorney Thomas Walsh and his staff handled my criminal case objectively and professionally. As a working professional I had a lot on the line. Needless to say, any kind of charges or arrest records would have jeopardized my career. Mr. Walsh's cool, calm and collected approach instantly put my nerves at ease. I was fortunate to have him represent me. Mr. Walsh handled the interactions with the court and gained a verdict very positive to my situation, as a result I am eligible for an expungement. A situation that could have done irreparable harm to my career is now just a bad memory. I am very happy with the outcome of my case, and owe it to his experience, guidance and expertise. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a fighting chance before the courts.

I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. He looked at every single detail and found everything possible to lower the charge. He let me know every step of the way where I stood and the outcomes possible. He ended up taking to the case to trial and got it dismissed! Best decision in my life to trust his judgement.

Tom Walsh is great! Now, I am biased because he got a good outcome, and no lawyer has “magic hands.” However, Tom is as close as it gets. He managed to step in and prevent having to go through the rigors of a trial. He is the type of attorney that other attorneys recommend. He was known by the prosecutor, having won against her in their prior trial, and the judge recognized him in the court. It was good knowing that experience and reputation were being leveraged against the charges. Overall, Tom possesses the proficiency, demeanor, and edge one would want if they had to argue their case before a judge or jury. Otherwise, he is great in making it not get to that point. Definitely recommended if you need a criminal attorney in Fairfax, Alexandria, or anywhere in Northern Virginia for that matter.
