    Hired Attorney

    You want James on your team

    James is the epitome of an intelligent and composed attorney who will fight for you in and out of the courtroom. I was arrested this summer for a Disorderly Conduct charge related to an incident where I was attempting to get the police to aid a severely intoxicated woman at Jiffy Lube Live. The charge boiled down to words exchanged between myself and the officer after an extended period of requesting help for this woman. When we got to court, the prosecutor changed the charge just minutes before our case was called before the judge. Fear not with James on your side- he quickly gathered his thoughts, studied the new charge's statute, updated me on where he felt we stood and left the option up to me as for our next step. We decided to try the case that day and James promptly had it thrown out. (The prosecutor also offered two plea deals which James explained to me and we decided not to take. One was a Drunk in Public charge and the other was a day in jail. We decided that neither was acceptable.)

    From my first meeting with James, I felt confident that he was going to do everything he was capable of so that I would walk away from this charge. He was honest and upfront with me as well as ethical to the T.

    If you are in need of legal advice pertaining your criminal case, you need look no further than James.

    Brillant and Dedicaded

    I have been pulled over on I-495 and charged with a reckless Driving 88/55 RECKLESS DRIVING code A.46.2-862. After a few search on the Internet I understand that I was in serious trouble , MEANING criminal offense and some jail time under VA laws. I met the lawyer James Abrenio who setup a strategy to help me out. I don't know what exactly he did, but at the end of day my case was dismissed and downgraded to a simple speeding ticket, so more criminal offense. We call this: EFFICIENCY. I would definitely recommend lawyer James Abrenio to anyone dealing with Reckless Driving in Court.

    Lesson Learned

    I felt lost after dealing with an insurance company. He opened my eyes and brought positive back where the insurance company took away.

    Very Detail Oriented

    Recently I have gotten to know James Abrenio and find him to be very thorough and detail oriented. He is very thoughtful regarding his cases, or the one I was connected with at any rate, and was able to pick out the best path to take through this consideration. He is very articulate ... doesn't waste the judge's time with lengthy explanations, and is able to tell the judge just what he needs to know in a very concise manner. It was a pleasure working with him, he is very bright and warm hearted and very helpful. His recommendations were spot on and the outcome for us was just as he said it would be. A very good guy to have on your side!

    highly recommend

    Mr. Abrenio got a great result in my case as he was able to get a substantial reduction in my (fairly serious) traffic violation charge. He was also very pleasant to work with and very responsive to questions that I asked. I could not be happier with my decision to hire him as my lawyer. I highly recommend him.

    Excellent attorney who I highly recommend

    James helped me with my reckless ticket. I was very worried about my ticket and the possibility of getting my license suspended because I need to drive for my job. Fortunately, I was referred to James Abrenio who helped me get it reduced which meant I could keep my license. James was very nice and personable and did a great job. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an upstanding, knowledgable attorney

    Attorney of the year award.

    Where do I began with Mr. Abrenio?, I came in contact to Mr. Abrenio pending a DUI case, was I not only nervous of what could happen but I was feeling down about my current situation, however, from the time that I first reached out to him, he was knowingly interested in my case which relieved some stress knowing he cared. He was very dedicated, on time, and knowledgeable, especially is DUI/DWI defense. I met with several Attorneys before hiring Mr. Abrenio, I felt a better vibe with him than all the others I had met with prior. So I then hired James to defend me. He kept me up to date with all information he had obtained, responded rapidly to calls and emails. He even contacted me on a Sunday in regards to questions about my stop/seizure. Once we went the first day, he was in attack mode, ready to go all in on day one. I felt this one a lil early bc their was other evidence brought to his attention on this day, so we then continued it. I met with him serval times before my next court date and he had given me more and more reasons why we should fight all the way and take this to trial. Next court date he was calling me the morning of to make sure I was in route and ready to go. During trial, let me remind you that we have waited all day for this to go down, He objected to the officers reason why he stopped me. I'm sitting there nervous hands crossed and fingers tight, just observing everything, Long story short, Mr. Abrenio was well prepared in the court room, he definitely had did his home work, he showed not only the courts but showed the judge the key arguments in my defense. The outcome was phenomenal. Couldn't ask for anything better, Cased dismissed, I was ready to jump out of my seat. Mr. Abrenio had done it. Just as I expected. We walk out of the court room, freedom, license, and dignity. I learned a lot from James, he is well respected in the community with other legal defense attorneys and judges. I highly recommend Mr. James. His fees were a little higher than others but well worth it. As they say you get what you pay for these days and to me having my freedom is priceless. I recommend Mr. James to anyone fighting a DUI/DWI case. Completely intelligent and respectful person, overall a great guy. If your looking for a great attorney who is well known in the community go to James at Benjamin W. Glass III, & Associates.
