Having to go to court is a stressful experience. Joe McGrath took much of the anxiety out of said situation. He was kind, considerate and patient with a nervous client. He took time to explain what was happening and what to expect. He stayed in contact prior to my day in court and was responsive in a timely manner when I would call with inquires. Even after the judgment went down and he was free to leave me to my own devices, he continued to represent my interests and was able to mitigate my sentence post ruling. I thoroughly and unhesitatingly recommend him if one is in need of legal counsel.
Attorney Joseph McGrath, thank you for your compassion, attention to detail and taking the time to address all of our concerns through the case .You and your team are a credit to the legal industry!

Having to appear in court before a Judge is an intimidating experience. You need someone to represent you who knows the process. Someone who thoroughly researches and prepares your case for all possible outcomes. Joe McGrath is that type of lawyer. We have used Joe many times over the last several years for minor infractions, all with a positive outcome. Most recently he represented us on some serious charges in two different jurisdictions. He was zealous in his pursuit of getting the facts of the case straight.
He repeatedly tried to call the district attorney in one of the cases for over a month, and the DA would not return his call. He finally got in his car and drove an hour to the DA’s office so he could provide his side of the case. He provided additional information to the DA and letters of reference on behalf of his client and was able to get the felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor. We were very thankful for his compassion, dedication and perseverance to our case. Joe also recommended counseling which we would have not sought on our own. The counseling has changed my son’s life. This would not have been possible without Joe.
Joe McGrath believes everyone should have equal footing in the courtroom and be heard. He will stand up for you and not back down in what he believes is the truth. I would highly recommend Joe McGrath, because he cares about you and your individual circumstances.
I got a DUI for blowing a .08 at a sobriety checkpoint in Richmond VA and was facing license suspension of a year.
Joe worked with me to get all of the necessary information about my case, and handled it all the way until I was judged Not Guilty in Richmond Circuit Court. Joe can give you more background on my case.
Though there are no guarantees in his profession, I believe Joe used the best and most strategic tactics to prove my innocence and save me a crap load of money and time.
First ticket I've had in a very long time. Joe eased me through the process and told me exactly what to expect. Reckless driving down to traffic school (which, by the way, I took on-line with a groupon I got off Joe's website)!
Mr. McGrath was thorough, courteous and effective. He provided me with the information I needed and the steps we would both take to make a positive outcome. I am most grateful that a friend of mine recommended him and that he was available to help me.
Joe helped me with two different incidents and both times he helped me every way I asked. He also answered all my questions and made me feel the best that I could going into court. I was very happy with the results.
Joe represented me in an automobile/bicycle accident. He did an excellent and thorough job and I would not hesitate to recommend him to another person.
Joe is an extremely effective litigator. I compare him to a mix between Matlock and Perry Mason. I had a case in Amelia County traffic court for speeding and a DWI. Joe was able to get the DWI charges dismissed and thus enable me to continue working at my current position. I would recommend Joe’s experience and expertise over most if not all lawyers in the Richmond and surrounding areas.
Joe shot me straight and kept me in the loop. Do not waste your time on a high priced attorney who will just tell you what you want to hear then just show up in court and collect a pay check.
Joe is knowledgeable and hard working and does care about your case.
