Ann Thayer handled a case for our minor daughter over the past several months and did an outstanding job navigating the courts & case. Her many actions and communication made it less stressful for the family during our first encounter with a court. I would highly recommend her.

Ann always would answer any question I had as bet she could. I had some rather bad charges pending and she got me to do what was needed to get them significantly lowered. She kept me informed the whole time and kept personal bias out of the picture. Very professional. Would use again.

I was observing Ann in the courtroom arguing a case for a friend of mine who hired her.
She was so passionate , so upfront , honest. And right to the point. And everyone could notice that. Verses the opponent lawyers (one of the largest law firms internationally "Akin Gump") they were very deceiving , tricky and dishonest.
Ann took all of them with punch after punch .. One would think that she had no chance in the beggining , when she let them present what they have , with nearly no objections from her.. But once she had the floor , in cross examination and in closing statement .. She crushed them .. She let the judge not only order on my friend behalf but to dismiss the previous judge order from a lower court.
Everyone was impressed with her confidence , her time management and the way she delivered and won her case..
As little as she looks .. She shook the very core of those 5 lawyers from the so called "BIG" Akin Gump , she literally destroyed them .. And everyone noticed that even the judge.
Ann doesn't look it, but she's undoubtly a true fighter.

Ann is very competent, hard working and very good. She is very organized and a good communicator. She explained everything about the case and gave me good advice. She worked very hard for me, even sending messages late at night. My ex-wife filed false claims against me and she exposed her lies and it was dismissed. She is very good. I am lucky I have her on my side.

Hello, I'm Raymond and I was facing a felony charge and a misdemeanor charge at the same time. I felt that I was being misrepresented by my previous lawyer Mark Dahlberg and had to terminate his services. That was when I discovered Ms. Ann Thayer. I contacted her by phone and immediately she started giving me advice and sharing valued information with me that I was not familiar with. I was shocked because she was helping me without being paid for it. I knew then that she cared for the person and enjoyed her job more than just collecting a pay check. I just had to hire her immediately! She put a lot of her time into my case and made contact with me as well as my family and friends to obtain as much information as possible and to keep us we'll informed. She didn't hide anything from me and she told me everything just as it was, no sugar coatings. Lol. Honestly, I knew I was in the best hands with Ms. Thayer. When we were in trial her expertise, professionalism, and attitude shocked the entire court room. It was a tough case against the DA of Virginia Commonwealth but she was able to get the felony dropped completely and keep me out of jail. 6 years I was facing!!! Ms. Thayer saved my future and I'm forever greatful that she was there to represent me. I can't thank her enough. If you need a great lawyer to represent you, I recommend the Taylor Law Company

I recently had hired Ms. Thayer to represent me in a destruction of property charge I was facing. After initially meeting with Ms.Thayer I felt comfortable and hopeful in her expertise in helping me get the best outcome. Throughout the 2 month process it took before the final trial date, I had only heard back from her a total of 2-3 times max, one time being the day right before trial to inform
me we would discuss the final details the morning of the court date. Although both parties dropped
the charges I felt Ms. Thayer did not put the effort into making sure I was comfortable and confident prior to court. I felt I handed her an easy couple thousand dollars for a very sloppy job done.

I got a a ticket in VA in December 2013, it was 82/55 so obviously I needed a lawyer to represent me. I contacted Ann and she explained to me all the details I needed to know about the case. I really felt very comfortable working with her, honest and straight forward. Communication was excellent and she always got back to me very quickly and that was the main reason I wanted to work with her. On court day she called me and informed be about the decision before hand and it was what I expected and what we discussed. I am really very thankful to her and highly recommend her to anyone.

Ann Thayer, is a lawyer who cares about her clients, I found myself in a situation that seem like I was never going to get out of. I did not live in the state of VA anymore but my case was being handle in VA so the thought of having to come back and forth to court was over whelming to me but having Ann as my lawyer took all the stress out of a very stressful situation. Ann kept me informed every step of the way, she made sure I fully understood everything, when I had questions she always returned my calls as soon as she could, or would email me to let me know when we would be able to talk. She made a case that seemed like it was impossible to overcome very bearable to deal with. Ann always made sure I was comfortable with choices that given to me and also was very upfront and honest as to what my chances were in doing jail time or not. She never sugar coat anything so I was always well inform of everything I was facing. I keep her number in my cell phone so that if anyone I know ever needs a lawyer I would be recommending Ann Thayer because she is the best

I would be willing to bet that in the vast majority of cases the police violate the rights of those they charge with crimes. Even an "honest" police officer may make mistakes (such as searching a young boy's bag without permission, or detaining him and forgetting to read him the Miranda warning). Why should you be punished for not following the law when the police officer also neglected to follow the law?
I called Ann for a free consultation concerning my son's case. She spent at least 20 minutes on the phone with me and after listening to the details, she pointed out how the police had violated my son's rights multiple times. She filed a motion to suppress the evidence that was illegally obtained and the prosecutor dropped the charges.
In the past, I've gone to lawyers for free consultations and found that most don't want to spend more than a minute with you before asking for money, and I've found many lawyers simply don't know the law. Ann, however, will take time to analyze all the details of your case and give you advice about how to proceed.
During my son's case, I must have exchanged more than 20 emails with her. I gave her all the information I could find, and I kept her informed about any new developments. She used every single fact and document I gave her to build a case that showed the prosecution she meant business. I tried to handle one case against my son without a lawyer and paid dearly. If I have to ever go to court again, I'm going to call Ann because I know she will work to make sure I have a good outcome, no matter how minor the case.
Here is my advice: Call Ann! Make sure you write down bullet points of what happened while it's fresh in your memory. Tell Ann the details. She will take notes, ask lots of questions, and tell you what she can do for you. I know many lawyers will not even do that.
I called her on a Friday, and the next Monday she was in court representing my son at his initial hearing. A month later we went to trial and we had the best possible outcome. She even helped us get a punishment related to a previous charge removed due to medical reasons.
Although Ann fulfilled the terms of her contract with me and could just walk away, she is helping my son recover property the police officer took from him, AND she said she would be with him later this month when he will be called to testify against a dangerous character who has already made threats against him. Isn't she amazing?!?
I honestly don't know where you will find a better lawyer than Ann. Call Ann and then call a couple of other lawyers and you'll see what I'm talking about. Thanks to her my son learned that you can fight for your rights when you've been violated. Her fees were extremely fair--about one-third of what I expected to pay. Stop reading reviews and CALL ANN!
