    • I recommend Elizabeth Tuomey.
    • I hired Elizabeth 1-6 months ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Elizabeth was an excellent attorney in representing my case in which I was dealing with a serious traffic infraction. She was very professional and knowledgeable from the get-go, helped me file a motion immediately, and was able to get my case moving in the right direction. I had fired my previous attorney for being unavailable and unresponsive and with Elizabeth I found her to be the complete opposite. She was quick to return emails, answered questions, easy to talk to, and explained the process very well. Laid out expectations very clearly - didn't overpromise and underdeliver (as some lawyers are apt to do). I've worked with a few attorneys in the past and Elizabeth has by far been the best. I highly recommend her. Went to court this morning to adjudicate my case, she talked to both the officer and the prosecutor, argued my case in front of the judge, and we got exactly what we wanted!

    Ms Tuomey was well informed and very pleasant to work with.

She was always accessible when I had a question or needed information regarding my case. I highly recommend her.

    outstanding! wonder adjudicator,skillfull and yes I must mention retired Fairfax county police mr. Art vonherbulis a man who lived and breathed and an enforcer of the laws of the common wealth of Virginia , as he instructs and scene by scene, and episode by episode walked his driving class through the experience of 40 or more years, the stories were the edge of your seat kind, riveting I wish every living human being would be a participant.It should reality TV. I was very fortunate to been a part of a humbling and rewarding experience.

    • I recommend Elizabeth Tuomey.
    • I hired Elizabeth more than 3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I hired Ms. Tuomey to defend me from a charge of "Reckless Driving," in Fairfax County, which in my case they had charged as a misdemeanor. Ms. Tuomey patiently explained how the system worked (particularly that hardly anybody charged with misdemeanor reckless driving goes to jail!) and charged me a fair, flat fee. On the date of trial, she met me at the courthouse and told me to sit tight while she talked with the officer who had issued the ticket. She came back half an hour later, and told me she was able to talk the officer into reducing the charge from a misdemeanor to a standard ticket, saving me a lot of money in fines and extra points on my license. I found her to be professional, knowledgeable, and an effective advocate.

    I would recommend her to anyone needing to fight a ticket.

    • I recommend Elizabeth Tuomey.
    • I hired Elizabeth 1-3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Juvenile matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Ms. Tuomey recently represented our teenager for a juvenile case, and we can’t thank her enough for what she’s done for our child.

    We engaged her based on her Georgetown Law credentials and her prior experience with juvenile defense cases, and she did an awesome job in getting our child a fair result.

    She’s very knowledgeable about the court system, prompt in responding to my numerous questions, and always knows the right things to do. Under her guidance, we were able to gather important record, and assembled a packet of documents, which impressed the prosecutor and judge, and resulted a fair ruling.

    Thank you again, Ms. Tuomey!

    • I recommend Elizabeth Tuomey.
    • I hired Elizabeth more than 3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Juvenile matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I retained the services of Elizabeth Tuomey based on a recommendation from a third party. When I initially met Elizabeth, I was cautious as I had no experience with her or the legal system. Through several months of representation, I found Elizabeth to be an exceptional advocate, crisp on the facts, candid on the risks, and zealous on my behalf. Elizabeth was pro-active and always responsive to the seemingly never ending set of questions and scenarious I posed. I found her prior experience with the court system and process to be very helpful in my case.
