    Paul is one of the best DWI/DUI defense attorney's in Virginia. He is a member of the National College of DUI Defense and has over 20 years of experience. If anyone I know receives a drug/alcohol charge in his area I send them to Paul. I give Paul my highest endorsement.

  • Charles Vanevera Hardenbergh

    Paul McGlone is an elite specialist in Virginia defense practice, and he is especially known for his work defending drivers accused of DUI. Ever since meeting him at the National College of DUI Defense annual seminar I have worked with Paul on a number of my own cases. He is a helpful colleague to whom I turn for advice or opinions regularly, as do other criminal defense attorneys. If someone is in trouble and needs help with traffic or criminal charges, they cannot go wrong with Paul. His counsel is invaluable, but his fees are a bargain.
