Mark Randolph Matney

About Me

I spoke on the topic "Serious Traffic Offenses in Virginia" for the Virginia Peninsula Paralegal Association and have provided video excerpts from that presentation for you to review on this website.


I authored a chapter in the book, A Cup of Coffee With 10 of the Top DUI Attorneys in the United States.  This book achieved the Amazon Bestseller List and Amazon's Hot New Release status.  The proceeds of this book benefit Kiwanis in their work helping children.
