Mr. Blanch is definitely one of those attorneys you want on your side. Unlike other attorneys I consulted, from my initial meeting with him, I knew from his enthusiasm towards the case and the strategy he laid out that this was the lawyer I wanted to represent me. I never felt at any point that I was just another case he had to defend, and he stood by me the entire 11 months it took to successfully conclude this case (due to me frequently having to travel out of town for work).
He is very knowledgeable in Virginia law, and a well-versed in taking cases to trial and appeal, which I witnessed first hand. He always made sure to let me know where I stand and what my options/possible outcomes were. He was also very flexible with me regarding payment arrangements.
I hired Mr. Blanch to represent me in a possession of marijuana case in Arlington county, in which many of the odds were stacked against me, and in which 4 other people were also charged. The case resulted in the charges being dropped (nolle prosequi), and my arrest record being expunged. I did not have to attend any drug/ASAP classes, have my license suspended, or do any drug tests. Some of the other co-defendents represented by other lawyers were not as fortunate to have their charges dropped.
He fought for me every step of the way, from my arraignment, to initial trial, and then appeal. I must say I was highly impressed with him at trial, where he tore the prosecutions case to shreds. It was also evident from the numerous interactions with prosecutors, judges, and other attorneys in the courthouse that he is well respected amongst his peers.
In conclusion, if you hire Mr. Blanch, you can be confident that he will do everything he can to get you the best possible outcome for your case. He did for me, beyond what I would have expected for this case. I owe this man my future.
