5.0 stars 20 totalReview John Boneta
I met with several lawyers before meeting with Mr. Boneta and as soon as I met with him I knew that he made me the most comfortable about my case and had a certain confidence that spoke louder than words. We were up a difficult case that involved a DWI 1st Offence >.20 charge. Mr. Boneta had confidence through the whole process that we would be able to drop down the charge to include as little jail time as possible since Virginia has mandatory minimums. He asked me to perform some mitigation such as community service, a safe driver's course, and on my part participation in AA. These steps helped not only the case, but helped me fully realize the gravity of my actions and the things I needed to do to atone for them. On the day of court the prosecutor came in guns blazing with three officers involved and security camera footage of the entire incident. Upon seeing the tape the prosecutor wanted to rescind his previous offer to drop the BAC below .2. However, Mr. Boneta stepped up again and said that was not going to happen. He had found several evidentiary errors and privately brought these to the attention of the prosecutor. In the end, the prosecutor agreed to drop the charge to regular DWI with a BAC of .14 which included no mandatory minimum and would help greatly in terms of insurance.
I cannot thank Mr. Boneta enough for going to bat for me personally and for taking the risk of asking to reduce jail time even in the face of such evidence as the recording of the incident.
I would recommend him to anyone and would not hesitate to go to him again.
When you need results go to John. Don't let the calm demeanor fool you, he is an articulate professional with keen insight on the law, the opponent, and those intangibles that matter. He safeguarded my reputation and had fun doing it as well. John and his staff have earned my recommendation.
Not only is John a phenomenal, brilliant lawyer, he is a beautiful human being who really does things in a classy way. A rare find. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, thoughtful, diligent, and consistently goes above and behind his call of duty. He is well respected by judges and prosecutors. In what thought to be two very tough cases, one involving a pretty charge, John was able to get both cases DISMISSED! I can honestly say that choosing John as my attorney was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I can never thank John enough for the kindness to me and I will think about it for the rest of my life. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer who knows the law and truly cares about protecting the rights of his clients.
John is an exceptionally well-versed attorney, prides himself on making sure the best possible outcome is achieved for his clients no matter how many times he has to fight for it in court, and is an all around wonderful human being. After being charged with a DWI, I was horrified at the possible implications, but John and his colleagues at the firm immediately made me feel that they had things in hand and would be able to defend me effectively, should we need to go to trial. Everyone at the firm was extremely professional, quick to respond when I had questions, and John put me at ease right out of the gate. We came out of negotiations with the prosecutor with the best possible plea bargain, and I couldn't be happier. If you're questioning whether this firm is worth the cost, I can tell you that it would be the best money you've ever spent - you'll immediately feel as if you're their only client, that your defense is in the best possible hands, and be comforted by the knowledge that they will continue to fight to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
I was referred to John Boneta by my husband, mother, and brother, whom were all previous clients of his. After recently being charged with a reckless driving citation, I received dozens of advertisement letters from attorneys. My family strongly encouraged me to trash all the letters and speak with the one and only, Mr. Boneta. They explained to me that he is undoubtedly the best traffic attorney there is, and that I must not go to anyone but him. He was able to dismiss all of their cases in the past, and they assured me that he'd do the same for me.
Today was my scheduled court date, and despite my skepticism and the two long hours I waited, he ultimately dismissed my reckless driving case. He's knowledgable, patient, and extremely thorough. He talks to the right people and waits for the right time. As a former officer and prosecutor, he knows the system and uses every endeavor possible to reach the best possible outcome. He exceeded my expectations and I am beyond satisfied with his diligent efforts. I would highly recommend John Boneta, or what I like to call him, the KING OF DISMISSALS!!

Mr. Boneta is not only a great attorney but a marvelous human being. His demeanor and professional capacity well exceeds my personal expectations regarding anyone practicing law matters, but in addition I will like to also add to my remarks his honesty, personal integrity and great professional knowledge, which in my humble opinion are "outstanding" in the event that anyone will ever need a defense Attorney. If you want a champ on your side Mr. Boneta is worth any fees ... The best and most honest and caring individual that I have ever encounter practicing law. A straightforward and great person. Thanks Mr. Boneta for all your great work you do !!! Sadly, they don't make people like you anymore :)

John is an excellent lawyer, very approachable and knowledgable. While I could tell he was confident with my case, he kept his feet on the ground, and helped keep me calm and confident as well. Without him, I don't think I would of gotten the same outcome (not guilty), and I am thankful for that. Plus, he's a Mets fan, from NY, like me. He know what he's doing and does it well.

John Boneta provided legal counsel for our family and representation for legal proceedings following my daughter’s DWI arrest. I am very satisfied with his services and those of his associate, Andrew Rudolphi, and would not hesitate to recommend their services. Not only did they do a fabulous job preparing the legal case, they also provided guidance for the family on what to expect during the court process and gave particularly good advice to my daughter in the month prior to the court date regarding the behavior required to demonstrate her contrition and the necessity for her to truly address life-style changes going forward. John’s previous experience as a police officer and prosecutor and his intimate knowledge of the Court in Manassas certainly contributed positively towards obtaining the best possible outcome.

John was the paramount professional attorney who ensured that all matters were handled flawlessly. His attentiveness and support allowed me to relax and realize I was in good hands. John is the type of attorney that I will recommend to others as long as he is practicing.
