  • Leonard Marc-Charles Girling

    I have known Van since the 1980's and I can attest to his being not only THE BEST reckless driving attorney in Virginia, he is one of the most honest and principled men I have ever met. Van became an attorney a number of years before I did, and he has served as one of my primary mentors. I have referred my own family members' to Van in the past, and I will not hesitate to do so in the future. Judges hire this guy for representation. That fact alone says everything you need to know about how much other attorneys trust Van's legal knowledge and litigation skills.
