    My best friend hired Lavonda (horrible)

    My friend hired this law firm they have this woman broken promises! She had doubts about paying Miss Graham because you know the economy is hard Ms.Graham and her law firm would contact her every day saying they can fight the case sending information on case she has won ! Once my friend handed her the money that's when things start going downhill she would not respond or call back her son got more time having a "paid" lawyer then other defendants which I mind you have had Records and court-appointed lawyer. I feel like this "LAW FIRM" needs to go back and take the Bar exam and maybe think if this was there son,daughter or family member what would they do?

    Lavonda Nicole Graham-Williams’s response: “It is always my expectation that should a client, or in this case, a friend of a client, have a concern about anything they believe my firm has done, that person contact me directly to resolve the concern. My door is always open. My cell is posted everywhere and is 703-930-6712. I continue to encourage you to do so. It is clear, you have misinformation. I welcome the opportunity to set the record straight with you face to face. First of all, money is never the motivating factor in any case I handle. I have been blessed with the opportunity to be able to do the work I love for nearly twenty (20) years now because of the amazing support systems I have in place that make money a secondary concern. So if you believe anything else, you are mistaken. In fact, I often reduce or waive fees to assist clients in cases where they run into financial trouble or fit within one of our discount programs, such as teachers, military, and students. I'm sure I did the same for your "friend." In fact, I do both pro bono and retained cases because I believe everyone should have access to excellent legal representation when their freedom is on the line. I also pride myself in a strong referral base amongst my prior clients. Furthermore, I am very knowledgeable in my field and use every resource available to me to the benefit of my clients---all clients. I spend the necessary time to achieve the goals set and I provide options for the client to choose from. Criminal work is a field of tough choices and major consequences. I never cut anyone short on the time they need of me to make these choices and understand their options. I take my work in these areas very seriously. In addition to my many years of experience, I graduated from top schools in the area in the top of my class and passed the bars to which I am admitted the first time. I regularly train my staff and attorneys with other experts in the field so everyone is putting forth top notch quality service. So any suggestion otherwise is simply ludicrous. LGW, Esq. and the clients I serve are family. As such, our representation extends beyond the final gavel of the courtroom. Should you need help with job placement, or restoration of rights, or simply a ear to listen after we have handled your case. We are always here. We only take the cases where we can help and when we take your case we do what it takes to make the best possible situation the outcome in your case. Each case is different and requires specialized know how and skill to know what is required and when it is required. We are experts in our field and know what it takes. Additionally, my clients have full access to me and my staff via 24 hour answering service, cell phone, email, text, Skype and good ole face to face meetings. As I said before, my doors are always open. I welcome the opportunity to set things straight with you and should you choose not to I simply ask that in the future you reach out first before making assumptions about the abilities of my firm and the work we do here. I strive for the best and welcome any opportunity to do that for a client in need. Always. NOTE: Should this be a fake post from a competitor, know that I will pursue you to the fullest extent of the law. My reputation and the work we do here is far too important, not to. I stand strong on the level of commitment we have for our clients and service we provide and will stop at nothing to protect it.”

    I could have gone to Jail

    I was naive and put trust in someone who later I found out was not honest. Mrs. Graham-Williams helped me get my life back. Had attorney Graham- Williams not fought for me I could have gone to jail and not been able to get a job. I am now working, competing my probation and community service.

    I would like to help others by letting people know that if you deposit a check in your own account and it is not good, the court will say you knew or should have know it was bad and prosecute you.

    I would like to work to see the State law amended to have banks send a US Certified Mail letter of notice to a banking customer to provide the banking customer the opportunity to deposit the money back that the bank approved and released into their account before the bank prosecutes it's own banking customer when later the bank finds it to be no good.

    Thanks you attorney Graham-Williams for helping me.

    We Made the Right Choice!

    We would like to thank Lavonda for assisting our (then/19) daughter with an allegation after another attorney we hired and paid failed to seek a first time option as did Lavonda in Arlington, VA. We appealed and received what we should have after I had already paid the first attorney. Lavonda's hand picked office staff efficiently relays messages to Attorney Graham-Williams and we received the answers to our questions expeditiously each time.
    From this attorney selection experience, I can say be very careful when choosing a defense attorney since defense attorneys are not all the same. When it comes to experience fighting for you completely, knowledge of the the law and delving into the all the factual details of your defense case look no further.
    Our family highly recommends Attorney Lavonda N. Graham-Williams if you are seeking legal defense representation for you and/or your family member.

    Drug Charge

    Meeting with any lawyer is always reassuring because they all want to help. We were referred to Lavonda through a friend. Initially, we were going to search for a lawyer in the Tysons area but trusted our friends referral. The charge was paraphernalia and possession 1st time offense. On the day of court, the judge gave the option of taking a course/program and at the end, removing the charge. At the time our name was called, Lavonda was not present. She arrived after everyone had been called and the lawyers were already negotiating options for clients. Lavonda approached us and basically there were no reductions, no charges dropped, nothing was done. She did however, get the paperwork to sign off the suspended license to be able to drive to work. If we had known our chances or advised about what was going on, we would've taken up the course/program instead of having a life affecting charge on record. This was about 2 years ago, and getting work is difficult, making a living is a challenge, employers don't hire. If you have a similar case and its yours first offense, save your money and take the program to get your record cleared. Lawyers do what they can, but be certain about any lawyer you decide on because it does affect your results.

    Lavonda Nicole Graham-Williams’s response: “"Silvia", I am so sorry you feel this way. Each client is family. My goal is to have each person 100% satisfied with our service and if there is anything I can do to achieve this I will. I encourage you to please reach out to me directly to see what can be done about your situation, especially work. It seems after two years this is where your difficulty remains. I have a number of resources that can help with job placement. As for the case, I don't know if that is your real name, because no such record of you exists, but if there was something that could be done in your case know that I would have achieved that for you. I do not have a direct recollection of the case but what normally happens for a first offender matter with a companion charge is that one charge where both can be proved is that one is dropped and your record remains clean of the other after successfully completing your course work and community service. If you don't do this successfully because you failed to complete or comply with these requirements it becomes a conviction. It is unclear which applies here but should you need help after non-compliance, please do not hesitate to let me know. Criminal law is about choices and the consequences of those choices. I take this very seriously. I am more than willing to do what I can to help where I can even two years later. My cell is 703-930-6712, call anytime.”

    DO NOT GIVE THIS FIRM YOUR MONEY!!!!!!

    DO NOT GIVE THIS FIRM YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I paid an investigative fee and once I paid them I got one phone call back, and since then I've never been able to get ahold of Lavonda. When I finally did she told me she would call me back when she had my file in front of her and have never heard back since, despite my many calls and messages. 500 dollars might not be a lot to some people but it is to me and I did not get what I was informed I would get. I'm left 500 dollars further away from my goal and have gotten no helpful information at ALL.

    Lavonda Nicole Graham-Williams’s response: “My firm is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week, by phone, email, text, Skype, FaceTime, and good ole face to face meetings. We are litigators and court is where we are most, fighting for the rights of our clients---this can make reaching me directly difficult at times. We are staffed with three (3) full time attorneys, one of which is on call at all times, two (2) support staff and a full time answering service. Access is important and I have these measures in place to be sure each client has the access they need. It is clear you feel you have not been provided the attention and information you expect, and that responsibility falls squarely on me. I am dedicated to making sure your desires are met. I encourage you to please contact me via cell 703-930-6712, call or text (text is easier if I am in court to respond to so feel free anytime), or my email: Lgraham@LngwLaw.com. My office line is also answered by a live person 24 hours a day and they can connect you to me directly 703-518-4328 It is my hope that any problem can be resolved to your satisfaction. My staff is on notice, so please contact me today. I look forward to hearing from you. [Note: I certainly would contact you directly but the name listed above does not give me any idea who you are (and frankly many ill-intended competitors falsely post reviews these days) so to ensure proper processing and protection of your privacy, please do contact me right away]”

    A True Legal Advocate

    Lavonda Graham-Williams represented my 20 year old grandson as a public defender for several misdemeanor offenses in December 2013. Because he was already on probation for prior offenses, it would have been easy for the charges to snowball into significant jail time. It became clear after conferring with Ms. Graham-Williams that she was an experienced attorney who understood the complexity of the charges. She was generous with her time and comprehensive when explaining the nuances of my grandson's defense. Fortunately, litigation was not necessary because Ms. Graham-Williams and her associates, particularly Tina Jackson, were able to negotiate the charges down to just fines which I believe was the best possible outcome.
    If you are looking for an experienced attorney, a true legal advocate, in the Northern Virginia area who understands criminal law and genuinely feels for her clients’ individual circumstances, I don't believe you could do much better than Ms. Graham-Williams. If you're reading this, Lavonda, a heart felt thank you from our entire family.

    Lavonda Nicole Graham-Williams’s response: “Although I've never had the opportunity to serve as a public defender, I have been asked by the court to represent the indigent from time to time as was the case in this matter. I am eternally grateful for the kind words. My firm strongly believes that no matter how much your income level, you deserve an attorney that aggressively defends your rights and zealously advocates in your defense. Thanks again.”

    There is NO attorney better than Lavonda!

    I was arrested, facing a very serious matter and needed the best legal representation. Other attorneys I interviewed were aloof, impersonal and expensive! I met Lavonda through a recommendation from a friend who had worked with her in the past. She was professional, honest and made me feel immediately in good hands. Her and her team were thorough with their research and case preparation. She left no stone unturned and kept me informed every step of the way. In the courtroom, her years of experience were evident because she nailed it. My case was dismissed and I gained my life back. I couldn't have asked for a better verdict! I recommend Mrs. Graham-Williams to any and everyone who needs competent, aggressive, affordable legal counsel. She's the real deal.
