So like most people caught up in life things tend to happen where you run behind making you late for work. I was pulled over and charged reckless driving in Leesburg VA one day without any real evidence against me other than an officer saying he saw me run a yellow light and guessing I was speeding. I understood that the charge was serious and I needed real help. After days and days of contacting different attorneys all of which seemed to give partial advice with outrageous pricing I googled best reckless driving lawyers in Leesburg Va and came across the Laurel Brigade law group. Once in touch with them like most attorneys you reach to try to get a consultation, I was lucky enough to speak to with Mr. Demetriades. Let me just say that of all the time spent reaching out and speaking with different lawyers he immediately put me at ease about the case and very swiftly told me not to worry. Here's why I recommend asking for Eric specifically, not only had I just started a new job and been stretching to make ends meet so I didn't have all the money to retain him up front, but I also waited until the Friday before my second case. Now of course I don't recommend trying to wait until the last minute, but I was in a tight spot and to me that says all the world about ones character to understand that people go through hard times and still go above and beyond to help someone you haven't met face to face. Eric not only arranged to work out my payments to him with a better price, he set up things on my court date so that I didn't have to even show up. I had left work to go anyway which he called me over and over again to let me know what he worked out which once I arrived I actually witnessed him calling my phone which had to be put in storage per court rules. Long story short I cannot thank Eric enough for going above and beyond not only for being a last minute hero getting my charge removed to a simple fine! But for giving the best experience for a last minute call to help. He gives you a presence that you know him personally and treats you like a friend instead of just another client. 5 stars all the way!
Eric Demetriades is first and foremost a great person. He helped me in a time of need not once but twice. I would recommend him for anybody dealing with a DUI. I was looking at some serious stuff with my 2nd and 3rd DUI pending. Eric got me out of jail and gave me my life back. I can't emphasize my praise for this guy. He knows the right people and he'll work with you if your good for it. Bottom line awesome lawyer.
Eric's knowledge of the Loudoun County court and his experience in defending similar cases was instrumental in achieving the best possible outcome. His knowledge of the prosecutors at the court was crucial in how and when my case was scheduled.
Eric was very timely with communications and I would certainly, if necessary, retain his counsel again.
I believe that Mr. Eric Demetriades handled my case in the most satisfactory manner professionally and personally. He performed his duties in an outstanding manner and in the most commendable way. His accomplishments were beyond my expectations as he was able to reduce the penalty to the maximum minimum what I expected and honestly exceeded my expectations of such a reduction. I will not hesitate to hire his services at any time. He should be commended for his exemplary services.
From the beginning consultation the only thing I was promised is that every stone would be uncovered. I was looking at two years in prison for a fourth DUI. Even though I was not traffic stopped I pulled into a driveway that had a "house watch" so the officers washed there hands and didn't think twice about the case. Eric was persistent on trying to contact both officers with no avail, and when going to the preliminary he got every question out that we needed. Me being shaky and nervous as usual in court he was confident and prepared. Eric ended up filling a motion to suppress any evidence, which included several valid virginia Supreme Court cases that were directly in line with my case. We ended up being granted the motion to suppress and the district attorney still tried to fight it until he new nothing else could be done. Eric has a team that supports him and gives any needed added advice when things get hairy. I would recommend Eric to anyone that is in need of a confident well backed lawyer, you might pay a little more but it's your future.
Eric is a very good lawyer and he is always friendly and tries his best to help you. My case situation was tough and not under our control, but Eric was very patient and never gave up. Finally the judge made a correct decision for us.

Eric is a great lawyer. Not only does he go above and beyond to help you with your case, but he's compassionate and listens to you and very easy to work with.
I have referred him to several people I know and will continue to do so.

I cannot say enough positive things about Eric. I chose him three years ago to represent me in my child custody, visitation, child support and protective order cases. I got a great first impression from him and have continued to be wow'ed by his kindness, honesty and hard work. Responses to emails or phone calls were immediate and I've always felt that he genuinely cared about both my son and I. He helped me to win full custody each time and the final outcome was always in my favor and what was ultimately best for my son.
When I was recently wrongly accused of an assault charge I once again turned to Eric. He made me feel at ease, while never sugar coating anything. I couldn't imagine going through it without him as my lawyer and would recommend him to anyone and everyone.
Thank you Eric!!!

It's never a good thing when one needs a lawyer and it wasn't in my case. I hired Eric to represent my son and he has been fabulous. Not only is Eric honest about the reality of things, but he is supportive and actively engaged. Eric also has substantial connections within the community and knows exactly how to navigate the court systems, police and prosecutors. He works with integrity and passion for the best possible outcome. I highly recommend Eric!
