She comforted my family and me during a very difficult time in my life, for which I remain perpetually in debt to her.

    Fairfax, VA - Reckless speeding

    Mrs. Porter was recommended to me by others knowledgeable of her skills and character. She was very open and honest at all times about what I might expect as far as best, worst and likely outcomes from my 95 mph in a 55 violation in Fairfax County, VA. She was easy to reach when I needed her and responded quickly to my emails. As is to be expected for such a violation, my actions did not go without punishment from the court. However, Mrs. Porter was able to work with the commonwealth's attorney to reach a plea that was considerably less severe than the maximum I was facing. I'm sincerely grateful for her efforts and her professionalism.

    Relieved Client

    Karin was extremely helpful in dealing with my DWI case. She kept me informed throughout the process and was always on-call to answer any questions I had, even after the trial was over. Her knowledge of the process and experience in Arlington courtrooms were tremendous assets for me and my family. I trusted her judgement completely and given the circumstances of my case, I am confident that she got the best result possible.

    Karin R. Porter- reckless driving in VA

    I am an out of state resident who received a reckless driving charge for 90/55 in Fairfax county. Not knowing the area, I panicked when I received the summons, and, after reading about what could happen to me as a result of the reckless, I was even more panicked at the thought of a criminal charge and a licencse suspension. I sought out a lawyer to help me with me case, and came across Ms. Porter. I decided to call the office to gather information, and everyone at the firm was extremely nice, and very quick to respond to any emails or phone calls that I had reguarding my case. Karin gave me her direct email and number to get a hold of her at any time, and she always responded very fast to my questions. She made sure I understood what could happen, and made sure that I was well prepared for my case. I ended up having to go to court twice (after taking a continuance the first time), and both times she prepared me and made sure I had proper documents to help me with my case. Iin the end, my case went to trial, and the judge ended up dismissing my charges completely, and I was found not guilty- thanks to Karin and her awesome skills in the court room. I was EXTREMELY satisfied and impressed by the outcome, and I would not hesistate to use her as my lawyer again if needed!!

    An experienced, savvy professional with guts and heart!

    Karin took every detail of my case into consideration to successfully getting charges dropped and reduced. She took a tremendous amount of time to listen to the description of events and share her knowledge and perspective on how things will unfold. Karin is highly intelligent with a solid grasp on law. Her skills at handling people, on all sides of the table and bench, are top notch. She has an appreciation and respect for justice, dignity and ethics that is demonstrated in her every move! Her continued success is earned and deserved.

    Sigh of Relief

    Karin is a compassionate, attentive and highly professional attorney who helped me and my family through a significantly difficult life changing event. She listened carefully to my situation and before ever accepting a dime, immediately proceeded to lay out a path for resolving my issue. Karin kept my expectation level of the outcome of my case realistic. She kept me informed on the status of my case throughout the process. She proved herself to be a thorough, knowledgeable and detail orientated attorney that through her keen knowledge of the law, understanding of the potential disciplinary options the State could seek, resolved my case with an outcome that exceeded my expectations. I hope to never again need an attorney but if I do, Karin will be my first call. If you are reading this review because you are in search of an attorney, I highly recommend calling Karin Riley Porter.

    Great Attorney!!

    After being charged with three class 1 misdemeanors and speaking to numerous attorneys, I came across Karin Porter. I called her law firm and spoke to another attorney before speaking to her, I was very impressed with her knowledge of the court process and also the possible outcomes she predicted. She was caring, informative, and professional; Karin was not intimidating and she did not try to scare me into retaining her (like other attorneys I spoke to did) which was something I appreciated. Karin told me that my case was certainly worth fighting for rather than just accepting whatever plea is given. I decided to retain Karin because her past experience as a Prosecutor made her stand out from all the other attorneys I spoke to. Although I was told up front by the firm's receptionist that Karin would charge $500-$1000 more than other attorneys in her firm I did not let that stop me from retaining her. (I strongly recommend not letting any amount of money prevent you from retaining the right attorney for your charges)

    Each attorney I spoke to mentioned that at the first court date the case would most likely not be resolved because the first court date is the first time all of the evidence is able to be reviewed be the attorney. I felt scared and nervous going into the court room. Karin was constantly in and out of the room getting as much information and evidence on my case as she could the day of court. She also made sure to inform me of everything she was doing on the court date, she kept me up to date on any new information she received or a new strategy that she planned to execute. Karin was ready to go to trial on the first court date with all of the information she gained. Karin was also always available incase I had any questions and she was constantly guiding me and providing me with advice regarding what to do and what not to do in court.

    Ultimately Karin was able to convince the prosecutor to have all three of my charges dismissed at the first court date! This result was one I did not expect to occur especially on the first court date. I can not express my appreciation and thankfulness for Karin's work on my case! I would certainly recommend her for any criminal defense charges anyone is facing. Karin mentioned that she had not dealt with a case that was just like mine as a criminal defense attorney and she was still able to achieve the best possible outcome yet so I would strongly recommend her!! Although I hope to never need the services of an attorney again I would certainly retain her again if I am ever faced with any charges. Overall, Karin is a great attorney who is not only realistic and caring, but one who will do her very best to reach the best outcome she can without settling for anything less!

    I would highly recommend Karin Riley Porter

    Karin was extremely thorough and professional throughout my misdemeanor case. From my initial consultation to the last court appearance, she made the process very efficient and easy in very difficult circumstances. Her experience definitely showed in how she handled my case. Ultimately, she was able to make a deal with the prosecutor and was able to achieve a very satisfactory outcome for me.
