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

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.

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.

    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.

Working with Mr. Porter was a great experience! He kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone needing legal counsel. I found Scott to be very thorough and honest with his evaluation and recommendations on my case. He worked diligently to bring me a fair and equitable conclusion. Scott is a very diligent, well-prepared and an exceptional attorney. If you are seeking an attorney who is capable, compassionate, knowledgeable, honest, and caring, look no more. Scott was very professional and always responded to my texts, emails, or phone calls in an instant. He is hands-down the best attorney to handle your criminal/traffic cases. The best decision I made after my altercation with the law. I would recommend him to anyone.

I returned a rental car late and I realized that there was a warrant issued for me that I was unaware of. I was arrested upon returning from overseas and had to return to Virginia to turn myself in. I reached out to ten attorneys in the Arlington area to handle my case, however I didn't feel comfortable with any of them. I called Price Benowitz and after speaking to Shannon, I felt completely at ease. After explaining my situation to her, she recommended that I speak to Scott regarding my case. He reached out soon after and assured me that everything would be fine. He was very open and honest about the case and was direct regarding the potential outcomes. Looking back on this experience, it was a great decision to hire Scott. To have an attorney that doesn't just view me as another case made me incredibly grateful to him. He is a Godsend and I wish that more attorneys would embrace the humanity of service and law.

Scott Porter came highly recommended to me. I can understand why. Overwhelmed an confused was putting it mildly. Scott was very patient in answering all my questions and putting my mind at ease. He was very thorough and extremely professional. I am so glad Scott represented me, I cannot say enough good things about him.

Mr. Porter is an excellent attorney! He breaks everything down to make sure you know exactly what is going on, which put me at ease immediately. I love the fact that he was a prosector, he knows what to expect and lets you know all the possible outcomes of your case. I would highly recommend him.

Just when I was about to lose all hope, Mr. Porter came into the picture. It was not easy as my situation was dragging on for a long time before I brought Mr. Porter in, but he was able to get me my life back and once again I am with my family. His background and experience was critical in getting me out of my situation. I just wish I could have brought him in earlier…

One of the hardest things I had to do in my life was to choose a defense attorney for my brother criminal case as he was in no shape to do it for himself. During this time I met with few different Law firms. However, when I met with Peter, I got really impressed by him for being very patient in listening to my brother’s condition. Me and my family were also very impressed by his past cases. After listening to everything, Peter gave us very realistic goals and advice. Peter and his associate,Muhammad provided us with excellent legal advice and guidance to my brother and our family for the case. We are really thankful to Peter Greenspun for all he and his team did for us. Throughout the trial period he and his team stayed in communication with my brother and our family. And explained what was going on with trial every step of the way. He and his team worked tirelessly and one of the thing that really impressed me was he was prepared and thought all different angles of the case. In short, after hiring peter and his team we felt like we hired the right lawyer for my brother’s case. They were very effective and were there for my brother every step of the way. They got the result my brother and I was looking and this would have not been possible without Peter, Muhammad and support of his team. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone in need of legal advice

I was facing two years in jail for a probation violation. Muhammad is GREAT at what he does. He walked me through everything from beginning to end but also did his best to prepare me for the worst case scenario. He really gets to know his clients vs. other lawyers that just see a file. I ended up serving no time. Not even an extension on my probation. You can tell by his delivery in court that he knows what he's doing. I've already recommended him to 3 people. Thank you for everything, Muhammad!

Anastasia and Peter helped me with getting a traffic violation dismissed. Timely, professional, caring, and talented. Would recommend for any small or large legal issue!

Peter Greenspun helped my son during a very difficult time when he was younger. Couldn't have found a better attorney anywhere. He is the best there is. I appreciate all he did for us.

I was represented by Mikhail Lopez and was extremely happy with my experience. Mikhail was excellent from start to finish. I was very impressed with how thorough he was in preparing for my hearing. He always looked at things from all angles and considered what the prosecution's response might be to every particular point. The motion he wrote up was excellent. It was extremely thorough and well-written. Even the judge made a comment about how well written/prepared it was during the hearing. In the courtroom, Mikhail was extremely composed and confident. He also gave me honest and realistic expectations at every step. I always felt like I was in good hands with Mikhail and can't recommend him highly enough.

Both Mike and Amelia were very understanding and supportive during my Family Law situation. They are superior in Family Law knowledge and worked their absolute best to make sure I was kept informed at every step in the process and that I understood my legal rights. Never ever did I feel like I was alone in my difficult situation because they both are caring and compassionate in their work and to the people they represent. Professional, dependable, always keeping the opposing attorney on their toes, and tireless in their efforts to do what is right.

Mike May went above and beyond while working on my case. I will definitely be using him again in the future, if needed, and I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a family law attorney.

If you are looking for a top-notch traffic offense attorney, look no further! My son, who is also an attorney, highly recommended Mr. Michael May to represent me in a very serious traffic offense. I am a 70-year old woman who still worried about the outcome, but in the end, I shouldn't have worried at all. Mr. May exceeded my expectations. Mr. May was very thorough, explained how he would defend me, and, if I didn't understand, he would reiterate it again until I did understand. Mr. May is a very kind, calm, confident and competent professional who had my best interest at heart. I was especially impressed at the fact that he treated me more like a family member than a client. Mr. May's take charge ability to remain calm, allowed me to remain calm and let him do his job. Needless to say, I am more than pleased to highly recommend his services without reservation to anyone who needs an outstanding lawyer. It was a pleasure to have worked with him. As far as I'm concerned, he walks on water. I was blessed to have him represent me. Joyce DeBass

I worked with Michael and his office for about 18 months. He was thoughtful, diligent, and always responsive. He's a great guy to have in your corner. The office staff was helpful and courteous. I appreciated how easy it was to be able to sign document and make payments online. I intend to return to Michael for any future legal needs.

Erick is a wonderful layer, and was able to answer all the questions I had. He was also able to tell me what to except on my court date. Erick made sure I understood all the options that were available to me. He helped get the best possible outcome for my case. I would strongly recommend Erick.
