    Mr. Green was very easy to talk to and he immediatley understood what I needed and the importance. He handled the case for me, I never had to go to court and the charges were dismissed. Thanks.

    • I recommend Garrett Green.

    I was charged with reckless driving (81/50) in Fairfax county. After a very thorough initial consultation in which it was made clear the process, expectations and probable outcome I retained Nichols & Green. My charge was eventually reduced to a failure to obey highway sign traffic infraction. Even though I am a practicing litigator I could not have achieved this result. The connections, experience and relationships Nichols & Green have are more than worth it.

    • I recommend Garrett Green.

    On February 20, 2015 in Fairfax County General District Court I had a hearing regarding a DWI, 1st charge, BAC of .15%. After my hearing, Garrett was able to have the court amend my charge from DWI 1st to a Reckless Driving conviction. Here is what the court sentenced me to:
    • 30 days in jail with 30 days suspended,
    • A loss of license for 3 months with restrictions,
    • Unsupervised probation for 12 months,
    • A $150.00 fine plus $92.00 in court costs,
    • Enroll in VASAP.
    Worse case scenario would have been 10 days in jail, and a loss of license for one year, which would have resulted in my loss of job, and high fines & insurance rates for years to come...
    Excellent job by Nichols & Green!!!

  4. Speeding Early in the Morning

    I was caught speeding at 92 in a 55 at about 4 AM as I was rushing to visit a dying a relative. As a young, just out of college graduate who was out of state, I really didn't know a lot about the speeding process and how best to obtain a lawyer. After numerous calls, I chose Nicholls and Green due to the breadth of my initial case review with them and the amazing lengths they went to to work with me as a client.

    My charge was eventually reduced to 89 in a 55 for speeding, and I can safely say that's a wonderful outcome. I was only culpable for 250 dollars n fines and additional court costs, and I have Mr. Green to thank. Both Mr. Nicholls and Mr. Green were involved with my case, making sure to notify me of last minute changes due to inclement weather or other court issues both via email or phone calls when i was free, and making sure I had the right guidance in the matter.

    I was impressed with Mr. Green's ability especially to succinctly describe all requisite actions I needed to do to prepare for my case, as well as to coach me throughout the process as to what next best actions a person in my situation would need to do. His courtroom savvy the day of my hearing and his deft negotiating allowed me to retain a successful position at my current work and continue doing my charity work and outreach, something Mr. Green and I both share. Would strongly recommend Mr. Green again and again for anyone looking for a great traffic lawyer!

    I was charged for selling alcohol without checking the customer's ID. I came to Mr. Green from a friend's recommendation, and he's been fantastic. He was able to negotiate with the prosecutor and got them to drop the charge after I completed a class offered by the ABC. My charge was dropped as discussed and I couldn't be happier. He only charged me a flat fee and it was reasonable. I'd totally recommend him to anyone seeking a lawyer for these out of nowhere charges.

    I had a possession charge of marijuana for an empty baggy that was found in my wallet. After staying clean, passing two drug tests, and doing 48 hours of community service, Mr. Green helped get my charge dismissed. He is an excellent , informative lawyer that definitely knows exactly what he is doing.

    Was cited for 81/55 reckless (a criminal charge), in addition to expired registration and expired inspection in Fairfax Co. Mr. Green was able to negotiate a plea deal bringing the reckless down to 74/55 speeding (not a criminal charge), and getting the two other citations dropped entirely. In my opinion, this was an excellent outcome. I do not have a criminal record, and I really didn't want that to change. Thanks to Mr. Green, it hasn't.

    Mr. Green was not only effective, but he and his staff were great prior to my day in court. During my free consultation he didn't rush me, and took the time to really listen. He even took the time to talk to me on the phone the day before court, just to review strategy and likely outcomes. Further, his office staff was extremely courteous and responsive. Mr. Green gave me an honest assessment of my chances of success right up front, and was above-board for the entire process. His fee was entirely reasonable.

    I have never needed a defense lawyer before, so the process of hiring one was a bit unnerving. God forbid I ever face a situation like this in the future, I'd hire Mr. Green again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.

    I received a booklet in the mail along with a slew of other material concerning a charge that I knew I was innocent of and planning to appear in court for by myself. When I looked at the material, time, and date it was set for; I decided to hire an attorney that could appear and speak on my behalf and mostly was knowledgeable in this area. Among the material, Nichols & Greene seemed to be the most knowledgeable by providing a booklet which described many criminal charges, what they meant, and how they could help.
    I setup my consultation, spoke with Mr, Greene, and he helped me understand that I had become a part of the on-going bullying and racial profiling that sometimes happens by being in certain areas and stores. Their price is a little steep but not too outrageous & flexible with payments. He quickly let me know his thoughts on the outcomes of my case, the information that he would need me to send him and how he was going to present it to the judge.
    On the day of court, I appeared and watched other cases so I could get a perspective to this process I've never seen before and can appear slanted or against persons of "different color/race"
    Mr Greene quickly got my case dismissed and provided much insight on his steps through the process. Dont waste your time with other lawyers making empty promises to you and your outcomes, this firm is more than knowledgeable, has great customer service, trustworthy and reliable.

    Mr. Green was extremely helpful in getting my reckless driving (misdemeanor with a possible $2,500 fine and 6 point reduction on my driving record) reduced to improper driving (a traffic violation, a $25 fine and 3 point reduction). Should I ever need a defense attorney again I will definitely be calling Mr. Green.
