Mr. Furlong is by far the most experienced, professional, knowledgeable, sincere, lawyer in the state of Virginia. He helped my best friend out of a DUI case over 5 years ago and that's who I was recommended by. Last year I retained him for a Marijuana possession charge and he got it dropped to paraphernalia with only a 200 dollar fine. No loss of license, No community service, just a simple fine. Even the cop that day said I had a very nice lawyer and should be thankful things went they way they did because of him. If the arresting officer is telling you, you have a good lawyer... YOU HAVE A GOOD LAWYER!!!!!!!!!!!
After that date Mr.Furlong gave me his card with his personal cellphone and told me to call him if I was ever pulled over again.
Then TODAY. a WHOLE year I am involved in an accident and long story short I moved from the scene of the accident and was being investigated for a hit and run. I called Mr.Furlong's personal cellphone without contact for the past year on a Sunday evening. He answered no problem and walked me through the steps and told me what to do. I ended up only being charged with a simple traffic violation (VA State Police can be very understanding of circumstances sometimes so give them a chance) and didn't need his legal representation (THIS TIME aka if the situation was to ever arise again I would retain him in a HEARTBEAT). Although, Simply his legal advice and him answering the phone on a Sunday evening after no contact for a year as if I was his full time client was extremely sincere and professional. In fact, he told me he was heading into another meeting with a client (On a Sunday evening around 6pm) so he wouldn't be able to answer again for about a hour. Meeting with a client on a Sunday evening while answering over a year inactive client's phone calls?? OUTSTANDING!!
Hands down Thaddeus Furlong is the best of the best and you should have no hesitation seeking his legal representation if needed.
Mr Furlong not only did my bankruptcy but also explained to me the procedure. He made sure I knew what was going to happen every step of the way and kept me from freaking out. He took care of every aspect of it and made sure to get me out of the courtroom as soon as possible (I hate courtrooms). If I ever need an attorney I can trust I will not hesitate to call him.
Attorney Furlong is sincere beyond belief.
In addition, he can allow one a sense of soothing relief.
A choice of traffic attorneys, but "special", I was pleased
to have found.
For he helped and calmed my emotional thinking down.
His professional method and knowledge of the law, allowed him
to argue my speeding violation and have the charge reduced which
eliminated many fears.
True professionalism he shows and his kind mannerism represents
from the heart, "He take the Client's situation serious and does Care."
We are an advocacy institution for Hispanic people and we recommend Mr. Thaddeus Furlong because he did an excellent work for our community in several occasions sometimes even for free for people which cases were taking few hours or were very poor with the same dedication as someone who pays him. HE IS AMAZING ! He is honest man, great heart ,knowledgeable.We have seen many lawyers but he is one of the few that knows what he is doing and cares about his client, you are very lucky if you find him. He is well known in the courts for NOT LOOSING CASES! I will paying anything he asks because he is not there to take your money he does work hard for his cases and with your money he helps people in need as pro-Bono attorney, definitely We will keep recommending him because you are helping another people trough him, and he is way ahead of the game because of his police and FBI background.
Remember that winning the cases are about how clever, smart and knowledgeable your attorney can be.
Once he represents you be sure he is on your side not matter how serious is your case.
Very good lawyer! Expensive but you pay what it takes to get excellent representation. He told us straight up what to expect and things happened as he predicted. He never lied to us and he fought hard in court. He was the only lawyer that used case law and knew the police procedures, probably because he used to be one. He worked with us on fees, but I wanted the best attorney for my boy so I went with Mr. Furlong. I hired other lawyers before and wasted money. He tells you the good news and bad, instead of snowing you like other lawyers. I gave his card to my whole family. Good honest man.
We talked to several lawyers but Furlong made sense. He was honest. Told us about the charge and the police investigation. I had a case with a bunch of friends and we all hired lawyers. And I had a bad record. He cost the most but I wanted a real good lawyer because I was in real bad trouble. He somehow found ways to get the proof kept out of court which helped my case. My friends didn't do so well and that was not good. But Mr. Furlong got me a a miracle that let me hug my children and I owe him forever for being great in court. I can never thank him enough for what he done for me and my family. He's a good man who will stand by you no matter what people are saying. Clever lawyer to. Good luck and God bless.
Recommended by the police officer who arrested me as one of the best lawyers. He was very prepared and sent me homework to do, explained the process, and negotiated with the prosecutor. He got my charge reduced to no jail, small fine, and I kept my driver's license. I saw other people being sent to jail for same charge I had and was very grateful I had Mr. Furlong. I was surprised the police knew him but I guess they see everybody and know good lawyers from bad ones. Other lawyers showed up late but he was usually early to court. Great attorney.
I was charged with felony computer crimes and Mr. Furlong fought every charge and even got my computers back. Judge praised him in court. He cost me money but saved my career and family. This is the guy to call when when everything is on the line. Knew more law than the prosecutor in court.
He was recommended by another lawyer and was outstanding in service and time he spent explaining the law and procedure. He met us after hours and was very patient in providing answers to me and my family. I was scared but he walked me through each court hearing and answered my mother's questions too. Other lawyers walked away from their clients after the hearings but he stayed and talked to my whole family. Just a wonderful man to have on your side.
We are from out of state and hired Mr. Furlong after an exhaustive Internet search of the top criminal defense lawyers in Virginia. My daughter had a Reckless Driving charge (misdemeanor with jail time in Virginia) and Mr. Furlong analyzed the police radar equipment and found out something wrong with the tuning forks which got the judge to throw out the high speed. He got the charge reduced to just defective equipment which carries no points. He's a former police officer and knew how the radar gun needed to work. Regular guy to talk to who gives it to you straight with no B.S. I interviewed other lawyers but they either said they would just "try hard" or that there plan was to show up and just "argue". Mr. Furlong had a strategy, gave us homework to prepare for court and answered our questions, even on the weekends. I would definitely hire this attorney again if I had a Virginia criminal case. Other lawyers quoted lower fees but he answered all my questions over the phone without the hassle of an office visit (hard since I'm out of state).I liked that he knew the prosecutors and judges and gave us a realistic view of what to expect in court. He also arrived early, unlike other attorneys who were late and whose clients ran around looking for them. If you get in trouble in Virginia I strongly suggest you hire this lawyer. He saved my daughter's career.
