No Nonsense Repesentation!
I hired Mr. Lindsey for a restoration of rights case. This was an out of state case working around my very busy work schedule. I found Mr. Lindsey and his staff to be patient, responsive and forthright in the assessment of potential outcomes. My case was successfully petitioned and the entire staff stayed with me through to the end! Would hire again.

Great representation and communication.
Mr. Lindsey was up front and very straight forward with how he wanted to handle my charges and case. He presented many angles we could approach to settle my situation, and described all the outcomes. I never felt that my case wasn’t being handled with great representation the entire process. Was beyond pleased with the outcome and glad I hired him.

Gun Rights
I recently hired Mr. Andrew Lindsey as I needed to get my gun rights back after a mental health admission I had in 2018 for substance abuse. After my admission I went to rehab, got my life together, and embarked on a career in armed security, executive protection, and private investigations. However, since I had no gun rights I was unable to advance very far in this career field. You must be able to carry a firearm in this line of work in order to advance to higher paying jobs. I contacted many lawyers but all of them wanted me to pay an outrageous amount of money to get my rights back. My best friend suggested Mr. Lindsey to me and when I called him he gave me a very reasonable and affordable price. He was very kind, courteous and professional and he coached me through the whole process from start to finish. When my day in court came he made easy and stress-free. He went up to bat for me and got my gun rights back within 30 minutes. This was life changing for me because now I can pursue my career to the fullest. I just got my armed special police officer credential as well as armed personal protection agent credential. This has allowed me to make more money, pursue my passion and take care of my wife.

One of the best in the business
Mr. Lindsey did a fantastic job in my case. I had serious charges brought against me over an altercation that occurred July fourth I was facing years in prison, fines, probation and having my record permanently ruined. Sometimes we get in situations that we didn’t start or provoke he was able to prove that in court. He worked with me guided me thru the whole process and gave me the best legal advice. Truly thankful for Mr. Lindsey and his team.

Highly Recommend! Five Stars!
I hired Andrew Lindsey to represent me with a first-time offense. From the moment I began this process, there was no doubt that Andrew was extremely knowledgeable and wanted to help me achieve the best outcome possible. Andrew was very prompt and attentive to all my questions, both via e-mail and text. Andrew provided guidance of steps to take before my hearing which I believe helped to aid in my end result. I believe I may have been the only one in the courtroom that day to receive an outcome of. . . CHARGE DROPPED! And here I was hoping for a dismissal! I attribute my outcome to not only his guidance to me but his expertise, tactfulness, and superb communication skills. I can’t thank Andrew enough and I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for legal representation.

Attorney Andrew Lindsey helped me to get a second chance rebuild my life.
Recently I received couple tickets at the same time. I was not sure what to do or who to contact or right person to deal with. I did some research online to find attorney near me. From online I found an organization "Price Benowitz" with very good rating. There I found Attorney Andrew Lindsey. He explained me everything that what we will go through together and also advised me what should I do in order to get best possible result output. He also mentioned fees and price before taking the case so that nothing remains hidden. He saved me from those tickets. I paid only minimum court fees and balance; No points was deducted because of the violation. As a person, I give him highly credit for his professionalism and being honest & straight forward. I appreciate his dedication and service.

Reckless Driving
Andrew Lindsey is a fantastic attorney. Andrew represented my husband for a reckless driving charge, speeding 91mph. Andrew was able to have the charge reduced to defective equipment, small fine and no points. I will add, we followed Andrew’s recommendations to a tee, and I would recommend you do the same, it worked! Andrew was great to work with, especially the timely, detailed, communication. I would highly recommend Andrew. Thanks again!

Malicious Wounding felony charges dropped to Misdemeanor Domestic Assault and Battery with first offenders program
I was charged with Malicious Wounding. Malicious Wounding is a serious felony in Virginia which carries years in prison, high fines, years of probation, and a permanent criminal record. I hired Mr. Lindsey and he knocked my charges down to Domestic Assault & Battery which is a Misdemeanor. He is very professional and I would highly recommend. He got me into a first offenders program and after 2 years of good behavior, my charges were dropped.

Really Glad I Chose Andrew Lindsey
I hired Andrew to represent me in a somewhat scary traffic case. I had slowly passed a stopped school bus and got a ticket. I went to court by myself, and was surprised and dismayed to discover the town attorney was seeking jail time. Fortunately, the judge said I could find an attorney and come back. After interviewing several attorneys, I hired Andrew, and I am very glad I did. He gave me very clear and detailed instructions on what to do before the trial, which I followed scrupulously. When the trial was set for a date (August 31) when I needed to be out of state, I asked Andrew if he could arrange to have me excused from appearing. He said he would try, and he succeeded. I didn't need to come to court, ended up paying a modest fine, and got an outcome that yielded no points or negative marks on my driving record. I would very strongly recommend Andrew for anyone in a situation like mine. Five stars, for sure!

I had a great experience
It was my first time ever hiring a lawyer and Mr. Lindsey was great in his preparation and explaining what was the charges and what I was faced. The day of the hearing Mr. Lindsey was flawless in his approach and his arguments in the court room, not only did I win that case but I won another case attached to it without even hiring Mr. Lindsey because of his way of presenting the case. Me Lindsey was worth ever penny and more. All I can say is thank you and great job

Very knowledgeable and helpful
Andrew is very knowledgeable and helpful. He took the time to call me back right away even though it was on the later side and he'd had a busy day, & he explained the law to me in plain English & went over all of my options. I immediately felt informed and empowered after speaking with him, and I wouldn't hesitate to reach back out to him with any future legal issues. I highly recommend his services.
