I interviewed approximately 7 different attorneys for my traffic violation before deciding on Dickson J. Young and I can honestly say it was the best decision I have ever made. As a medical student, a conviction would be devastating, making it near impossible, if not impossible to ascertain licensure. Dickson J. Young worked a MIRACLE. He gave me a second chance. Although his service is expensive, it was well worth the investment, if not more. There is no one else who could have pulled off what he did.
Mr. Young has been excellent in helping with my recent case. I came to him after being ill advised by my previous lawyer and he handled my case with utmost professionalism, a straightforward and no nonsense manner and was able to get me a much better outcome! His assistant is very organized and responsive and overall I felt I got great support and am very thankful.
Dickson Young is a no nonsense attorney who provides a very direct and honest assessment about the charges and possible outcome. In my case, a 2nd DUI within 5-10 years with an elevated BAC could have resulted in severe penalties against me. I believe Dickson's reputation in the legal community and his ability to communicate the client's circumstances enable him to achieve and surpass anticipated outcome. I was beyond happy with my being convicted and pleading guilty to a first DUI with the BAC stricken and my ability to do my jail sentence via electronic monitoring. I did not expect such a positive outcome considering my original charges. Dickson is a excellent attorney and his firm and support staff are exceptionally pleasant and helpful.
Mr. Young handled my husband's felony DWI case recently. While we did not have much direct contact with him his secretary was wonderful in keeping us informed on our case and the legal process. Long story short: Mr Young saved my husband not only from this serious charge but from a lengthy legal process which we were all but guaranteed in the Arlington County legal process had this gone to trial by getting it reduced to a misdemeanor. It was money well spent and we are grateful for his assistance during this challenging time.
Mr. Dickson was great counsel and saved me from a lot of trouble, I highly recommend this gentlemen.
