I consulted with Lavonda for a possible defense on a DUI charge in Fairfax County.
She came highly recommended from friends of mine who retained her to represent them on legal matters in Fairfax County.
One of my friends hired Lavonda to represent him in a DUI charge in Fairfax County.
He referred to Lavonda's defense of him in the courtroom as "beast" which is slang for remarkable. Essentially, Lavonda performed so well in her defense of him that the judge immediately dismissed the charge.
I called Lavonda and she responded promptly from her cell phone and later in the evening which is rare and something I found particularly helpful. It suggested to me that she works tirelessly defending her clients and is willing to be accessible even past her office hours.
Lavonda is definitely on my top list of attorneys.

Thank you Attorney Graham-Williams. Throughout my legal matter, I was totally unsure of what to expect and Lavonda answered all of my questions. I personally witnessed Attorney Graham-Williams' use of her vast legal knowledge and experience throughout my case.
If you are facing a serious criminal matter first and foremost you must as a defendant select a legal professional you can trust. I would highly recommend choosing Attorney Lavonda Graham-Williams.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

I recommend Ms. Graham-Williams!
I hired her based on the exceptional reviews I've read online and I wasn't disappointed. She was very helpful, answered my "thousands" emails with various questions :) and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case: my reckless driving ticket was dismissed! Definitely call Lavonda Graham-Williams!
