Defensive Driving Ticket
Jean was very knowledgeable and helpful. She is a pleasure to work with. I am really lucky to have her represent me in the court and I was at peace and not worried as my case was in very good hands.. She solved it and I did the driving course and she worked hard and my case was dismissed. I would highly recommend her . She is an exceptional attorney!!!

Speeding ticket dismissed
Jean humbrecht did an amazing job with my case. I was giving a speeding ticket for doing 15 mph over the speed limit and Jean got me a plea for a driver course and pay court cost and the ticket was dismissed. I highly recommend her for any traffic violations.

Jean was very helpful in explaining the process of everything that was going on as I went through my first situation going to court. I was facing two felonies and a misdemeanor. During the whole thing, she was very informative and patient with me while telling me everything I had to do to better my situation before arriving to court. Her advice was very helpful and it lead to the best possible outcome for what I was facing. Very grateful that I chose her to represent me. Thanks again, Jean.

Exceptional Attorney!
Back in Aug/Sep 2018 she helped me through a domestic assault charge that occurred between me and my wife. She did an amazing job through the whole process. She explained everything in detail and was very caring through the whole deal. Her fee was spot on and I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a knowledgeable experienced attorney. Thank you Jean!

I hired Jean to represent me with a traffic case in Northern Virgina. Jean has a very professional work ethic, she was able to accomplish the goal and offered an affordable plan for payment. With so many choices in the hiring of an attorney, I feel fortunate that I was able to have Jean represent me. Without hesitation I will use her again in the future if needed.

Not guilty on all charges
I was already a twice convicted felon and looking at three more felonies and a misdemeanor when I met Jean. She was appointed to me by the court in Prince William County, and I had no idea how lucky I had become. I could tell that Jean was a bit nervous when she first met me, which is understandable considering I had been picked up for a malicious wounding and strangulation charge the night before. Jean listened though, which is one of her best qualities, and as time went on I could see that she has a keen ability separate "who you are" in order to determine your character rather than what you are charged with. Even though I did not hire Jean she fought for me as if I had, putting many many hours into the preparation of my trial, including some meetings on Saturday's for hours in her office. Because of Jean's dedication and persistence for pursuing the actual truth she was able to weed out many inconsistencies, and in the end she was able to show the jury what I had known all along. They only deliberated for thirty minutes before coming back with not guilty verdicts on all of the charges. Beyond Jean's zealous pursuit of excellence at her profession is her understanding that the legal system is not perfect and in many cases not fair. By the end of this debacle I felt almost as if I was being represented by a friend, which is an extremely good feeling. If you need a lawyer in Northern Virginia you could not ask for a better one than Jean Humbrecht. Thank you Jean for getting me through this and making it possible for me to move on with my life and enjoy my family and freedom.

traffic ticket
My attorney represented me in court on a stop sign ticket I had while driving with my kids. I was facing demerit points on my license but my attorney represented me very well and I only needed to pay court fees. I did not lose any points on my license.

Jean represented me in a protective order hearing against my spouse, divorce by publication proceedings and at a pendente lite hearing. She is very kind, caring and easy to talk to. She is very responsive to emails and phone calls. Her advise was comforting and spot on. She did a great job! Her hard work and dedication to my case was outstanding! Jean helped me at the darkest moment of my life and I can't say thank you enough! Jean truly is a great attorney! I highly recommend her.
