If I could give this law firm "Jud Collier" a zero if I could. Please please please stay away from this attorney. We hired him to represent my brother in a case. Our initial meeting was great of course telling us what he could and would do for the case. The moment we retained him, he became the hardest person to get in contact with. We would have to leave message after message at the office, via text messages and email which took days sometimes a week for him to return our calls. Secondly his story changed on how he would go about representing my brother as far as defense. All of a sudden the the case is so so hard ,difficult and not leaving him any ways to win the case or lessen charges but during the first meeting he was so confident that he could help.. Then after the case went to court oh let me not fail to mention going into court we didn't even know his defense before the trial. Let me just say his defense was a 'JOKE' and I repeat a " JOKE" he promised he would be taking some actions regarding the outcome of the case to help my brother... ummmmm well every call, text message and email as gone unanswered. I contacted him on November 11, 2018 and I still haven;t heard from him. All about the money !!!! He can not be trusted.. We paid this man over 10K and we would've gotten a better outcome representing ourselves in court.

David Carlson is a horrible lawyer, the kind that gives most lawyers bad names. He only cares about himself and how much $$$ he can make off you and take advantage of your legal situation at the point you needed help the most. After you agree on the retainer fee and hire him, afterward, he will make your case sound so difficult and then request/demand more $$$ without or having to do extra work. His law and client skills are also not great neither. Stay away and do not hire this lawyer unless you like throwing away hard-earned $$$. Don’t believe all the good reviews on this site. I am pretty sure that our negative review/opinion would get deleted or not even posted. If we have more time to deal with it, we would have file a complaint to the Virginia State Bar. We would even give him one star but had to to post our review.

Abe Del Rio lll ... Impressive lawyer.

Mr. Collier was extremely good to work with and his professionalism was way above expectations. I was originally schedule to work with his partner, David Carlson but due to an emergency I was recommended to him instead. Now, think about a highly specialized surgeon doctor, someone with a vast array of knowledge and steady hands. Also capable of explaining difficult terminology into layman's terms, always with a great attitude, and patience. Mr. Collier is definitely a doctor in his field. He has helped me win a case that I thought was already lost. Did I mention his positive attitude and hardwork? He even called me on Sunday to accommodate my work schedule. My only wish is that I could pay him more money because he is definitely worth it. He has helped me maintain my name clear of any wrong doings and I would definitely reach out to him if I need assistance in the future.

If you are someone who got into some unforeseen situation or problem involving police officers and needed someone to trust, I would strongly recommend to reach out to Mr Carlson for legal help. Mr. Carlson has enormous experience and credibility for sure that will help to get the best outcome. In a few meetings Mr. Carlson got the ground facts and advised for the positive course of action. He took care of everything and I didnot have to worry about anything other than follow his advise that will help with the case. The things that followed was exactly as he advised and got the charge expunged. Not to forget to mention about Ms. Lisa who has been extremely courteous and supportive. She has been always available at all possible time and day. She did all the ground work to collect the details and prepare for the case. She has gone above and beyond to make you feel good and not worry. Strongly recommend.

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!

After my experience with a less-effective lawyer, I was advised to contact Debra Corcoran. After our free consultation I knew I had to have her represent me. In the consultation she took her time, asked questions I never would have thought of, provided insight and recommendations and gave her undivided attention. She is the gold standard when it comes to professionalism, knowledge, experience, and wisdom which only comes from being successful in a field you specialize in. For Debra, that field is law. She always made herself available, was personal and spoke with respect and deep knowledge. She calmed me when I would get nervous about any uncertainty. She has resources that not all lawyers have, and this is due to what I believe is her ability to work others who realize the worth in working with her. Through out my case she was there for me. In court she spoke with authority and confidence. She always comes prepared and is ready to refute any allegation with truth backed up by statutes. She led me to victory and I could not be thankful enough. Her rates are priced accordingly and were never unjustifiable. She has shown me what an excellent lawyer is. I will always remember what she told me when I asked how she is so good at what she does, and her reply was simple and truthful; She strives to be the lawyer she would want to hire. Debra has high standards and there is nothing more you could ask for or expect. I HIGHLY recommend her in a heartbeat. I will always refer her and call her when needed. As if I haven’t told you enough, my family and I THANK YOU for all you do.

Debra is a very professional highly recommended attorney to get the job done and do it right. Like most attorneys she is very busy but is good at keeping you updated throughout the process and even takes time to check up on you when things are idle or going good. She gives you good advice sometimes from multiple angles and knows the local laws very well. I highly recommend using her.

I was truly fortunate to hire Attorney Corcoran. I interviewed several attorneys and she stood out to me because of her clear communication, thoughtfulness, and knowledge of the criminal justice process in Virginia. She listened, asked the right questions, and I felt like she really understood the problem and had the experience and attitude I was looking for. I put my trust in her and she took immediate, smart actions to resolve a horrible situation.

Debra D. Corcoran is one of the most genuine and most morally upstanding lawyers and person I know. When she joined my father's case 6 years ago with Craig Cooley, she and him did everything they can within her jurisdiction to prove my father's innocence. One of the many reasons why I trust her more than any of the other lawyers out there is that she fights for the truth and justice and just made us feel at ease when hope was very dim for my father! It was her hard work and nurturing nature that helped kept our hopes up when the cards were against us along with Craig Cooley. If you need someone who stands for justice, your rights, and give you hope, she's an Ace in the Deck as there's only a few others that you will find and meet like her!

Tony is very responsive as soon as I reach out to him he instantly responds! Couldn't be any happier with the outcome! Thanks again Tony!!

Quitiquit is by far one of the most down to earth and sincere lawyers I have met!!! He was quite literally a breath of fresh air after consulting with about 7 other lawyers. He seems to care about bettering the community & equally important ... he succeeded in attaining a dismissal of my traffic case. ????

Have not followed up from the last appt so not sure if this receptionist still there, displays this sweet disposition and then starts slamming and throwing things around all of a sudden while several of us were in the waiting room. Very bizarre behavior!. Scary!!. Some type of severe anger issues or nuerological thing going on. Looks to be about 65 to 70, maybe Dementia or drugs Just loses it for no reason, wasn’t even on the phone. Very weird. No way this person could have any coworkers. Not the get along, team player type. We just all stared at each other in disbelief. Never saw behavior like this before. However, great lawyer, beautiful office!.

Best lawyers in town!! They care about you personally. Best experience I've ever had.

I am a client of Suzette Hutchens. I have been a client for over 20 years. I appreciate Suzette professionalism and her great staff that works with her. If you ever need an attorney she will be the one I will call again. One thing for sure I will always recommend her to family and friends. Thank you Suzette for the wonderful and great job that you do.

This firm does an oustanding job. These Attorneys will fight like champions do for the title. The best way to describe these Attorneys is Gladiators in suits. Suzette is strong, tough and very confident. Her team knows how to win. My recommendations are that you call Hutchens and Hutchens every single time. As they always say "Join the Winner's Circle!" Im glad I called! I would encourage everyone to call and definitely let these guys fight for you!

Took a while but once it was finished I was pleased. I had to initially get proof for my case but Suzette Hutchens fought tooth and nail for me.

Outstanding counsel! Bob goes the extra mile every time to get the best, possible outcome in the courtroom. I have used him twice in the 8 year period I’ve known him and would gladly recommend and refer anyone to him! Thanks again Bob!

I've known Bob Battle for many years and it is my opinion that he is one of the top DUI defense lawyers in Virginia. We refer all of our Richmond area DUI cases to him and the feedback we get from our clients who have used Bob is tremendous. I highly recommend that if you have been charged with DUI that request Bob's free book that is available at his website. You won't be disappointed.

An amazing lawyer and person. I have known this man for years as a friend, client and colleague. I have respected him in all things and now I have the chance to thank him when he helped a family member that was charge with a DUI. I experienced the professional side of my good friend and was humbled by it. An excellent attorney that tells it like it is and knows how to advise his clients. Thanks Bob for everything you did!

It really was a pleasure working with Bob. He looked far and wide, and dug deep to find the best options for me when I was facing reckless driving that involved alcohol and a car accident. I honestly was expecting the worst. But after reading about Bob and his past cases, he seemed like the best fit. He is passionate about what he does and his name is only have of the story. Well worth the money! He saved me a lot of stress and heart ache and I never would have dreamed that my charges would be dropped. He pulled it off. Thanks again Bob!

Hired Bob Battle to fight a charge in Henrico County for a DUI which can not only carry harsh penalties, but can be very expensive as well. I travel for my job and there was no way I could loose my license for any period of time regarding work. I met with Mr. Battle and he went over his presentation of my case and I was immediately convinced that this is the attorney I want in my corner! Mr. Battle should be "your" choice if you are ever charged with a DUI/DWI. My charge was dismissed with the expertise and knowledge that Bob Battle brought to the courtroom. Worth every $$$$$$$

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.

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.

John Mayoras represented a member of my family recently. What a blessing John was to us. He patiently explained the consequences for the charges to him (which were felony charges).He reviewed all the facts before the trial.with him to be sure he had accurate information. John went over everything with him. John did everything he could to get the best outcome at the trial. John not only spoke with our family member but also spoke with us about what was going to happen in court. Most times lawyers don't even acknowledge the family that is very distraught over what is happening to their loved one. John may have been a court appointed attorney but we couldn't have gotten any better representation if we had hired an attorney. I would recommend John Mayoras to anyone that needs a really good dedicated lawyer.

John is the worst attorney I've ever worked with. Don't waste your time or money with this individual. Get an attorney that is not lazy and actually willing to work your case. Avoid this person at all cost.

Mr. Mayoras is a rock solid attorney. If you want representation in a Northern Virginia criminal case, trust me, you will have no regrets if you select Mr. Mayoras as your Defense Attorney. In August 2015, my daughter was a victim of assault and pressed charges against her aggressor. The aggressor counter-charged my daughter. Mr. Mayoras was selected as her public defender. Prior to the hearing, Mr. Mayoras engaged with the prosecutor and maintained contact with us. On the day of the trial I observed other cases prior to ours being heard, I saw weak defense attorneys lose repeatedly to the tough prosecutor. As my daughter was called forward I started to worry. Mr. Mayoras was a rock solid attorney as he cross-examined the defendant who counter-charged my daughter capitalizing on every weakness and inconsistency. He not only had my daughter’s counter-charge dismissed but his piercing argument ensured that the aggressor received a conviction. I was absolutely impressed. A year later my son broke up with his girlfriend. In her anger, in March 2016, she chose to file charges of strangulation, assault, and battery saying that my son tried to kill her. A felony warrant was issued for the strangulation and a misdemeanor warrant was issued for the assault and battery. At that moment our lives changed forever. If convicted, my son, a United States Marine, was facing a five-year prison sentence and discharge from the military with no hope of ever finding decent employment in the United States. Life as he knew it would be over for the rest of his life. I called Mr. Mayoras to take the case even though I knew he only practiced in Northern Virginia. Although he warned me that he had no insight into the Norfolk courts, based on my previous observations, I believed that if anyone could save my son, it would be Mr. Mayoras. Upon taking the case, he did extensive research and kept us informed of his strategy to win. With months of preparation we went to trial in October 2016. Like my previous encounter in court a year earlier I observed multiple weak defense attorneys lose to the tough prosecutors leading to multiple convictions. At the end of the day, the last case to be heard, my son was called to trial. I started to get concerned as the prosecutor started to build a case against my son. However, as every prosecuting witness was brought forward, Mr. Mayoras processed every word that was stated exploiting every weakness and inconsistency in their testimony through cross-examination. He challenged the relevance of certain witnesses who as a result did not even get to testify. Then it was the time for the defense to take action. Short, straight, and to the point he built a bullet-proof defense with only two witnesses and the defendant. Sharp, smart, and one step ahead of the game, he even recalled one of the prosecuting witnesses and manipulated the individual to testify in favor of my son. The strength in the prosecutor’s case had dwindled by the end of the trial through the skill and mental agility of Mr. Mayoras. The judge dismissed both charges and my son was a free man with a life ahead of him. Think about it, Mr. Mayoras won this case despite having never entered the Norfolk courthouse previous to this. I challenge you not just to take my word for it. You have one chance to win or lose a case. Call him and find out when he is next in court. It will cost you nothing to see him first hand in action as he handles his case. I promise that you will be absolutely impressed. You don’t have to choose him, but please make your selection only after seeing him handle a case in court. I am in the military and am due to rotate to Florida next year. My only regret is that Mr. Mayoras is not bar certified in Florida! Good luck to you. Choose your defense attorney wisely.
