Mr. Benjamin Griffitts and his Paralegal Ms. Jenny Peshoff provided me legal representation and assistance for a Reckless Driving charge. Never having dealt with such a charge before, I had many questions and significant anxiety. During my initial telephone consultation with Mr. Griffitts, which was at no charge, he took the time to answer each of my questions fully to my satisfaction. He explained different options to consider which allowed me to make a better informed decision with respect to my particular case. The favorable disposition of my case exceeded my expectations. I would recommend their services to anyone needing legal representation for a traffic violation in Prince William County.

Mr. Griffitts effectively handled my case with the court and provided salient guidance in advance of the court date. His assistant, Hannah, was also very helpful, knowledgeable and efficient.

Mr. Griffitts and his team were extremely helpful. I have never been in a position like this and quite frankly did not know what to do. I was new to the area and had no idea about the lawyers in the area. When I called and talked to Hannah she confidently assured me Mr. Griffitts was the Attorney for me! She was spot on. He listens and goes over all options and possibilities. He gives his honest opinion and works the case from beginning to end, never cutting corners. When I called the office most of the time I was put right through to Hannah who addressed all my concerns in a timely manner. I felt they really took my case personally. If I ever need a lawyer in the future and he will take my case, it will be Mr. Griffitts and his team.

I highly endorse Mr. Griffitts. He is a knowledgeable and experienced criminal law attorney who will fight to obtain the best possible results for his clients. I recommend Mr. Griffitts to anyone seeking counsel in Northern Virginia for criminal law matters.
