I called him over the phone and the next thing I know he is giving me bad legal advice. Even after telling him the name of my attorney he continued to go on about what I should do misinforming me as well as attempting to make my issue worse.

Mr. Shin is the most compassionate, patient, responsive person I've met in years who went the extra mile (and in an immediate fashion) after I called various attorneys seeking help and JUSTICE. I have never met him face-to-face, but I shared my story with him and - knowing my time constraints - he quickly researched the matter and spoke to the appropriate people. His calm nature, sincere desire to help, and expedient actions brought me great relief that weekend before the hearing. Alas, the magnitude and intricacies of my case were astoundingly convoluted that he recommended a colleague (who coincidentally I tried to retain after a pro se hearing months earlier - he happened to be in the courtroom but his schedule didn't accomodate my next hearing. However, with the availability and on the recommendation of Mr. Shin, he is now ready and willing to help/represent me.) Mr. Shin 1) took the time to listen to me in such a caring, understanding, and non-judgmental manner; 2) researched the facts; 3) kept me informed of his findings; and 4) offered an alternative who would be able to take my horrific case. NO ONE had taken any of the 4 actions to date, in my attempts to secure counsel. No one would touch the case with a 10-foot pole. Mr. Shin did. (Not even the attorney I hired from a reputable local firm early this year who spoke a handful of words on my behalf - I the Plaintiff subsequently lost and have been digging myself out of this pit since... that atty wouldn't even touch the case again.) I am forever grateful to Mr. Shin. He is one-of-a-kind. The best kind.

Really incredible attorney he knows what he is talking about. He gave me so much of his time I felt so shocked. Someone who doesn't know me treated me like his own blood brother. Wow! Just wow! I would recommend anyone to Mr. Shin.

I received a minor traffic infraction that would have ruined my insurance rates. Anthony was able to get the case dismissed with little effort on my behalf. He was able to adapt to the shifting environment in the courtroom. Because it was a minor infraction the judge was baffled at the choice to go to trial and seemed like she would just find me guilty of the offense. Anthony was able to persuade her with a very logical approach. He then managed to get the case dismissed completely.

I was referred to Anthony by a friend for a tax related misdemeanor charge. As soon as I made the first phone call, I knew I was talking to the best. Anthony took the time to actively listen to my case and did a great job analyzing all of my options. He walked me through each step and explained to me his strategy to win my case. Right from the start, Anthony took ownership and control of my legal battle and replaced it with a peace of mind. Anthony wasted no time and started working on my case immediately. Within 48 hours, Anthony surprised me with a phone call saying he resolved my case with the Commonwealth of Virginia prosecutor which resulted in a DISMISSAL.
I am extremely grateful to attorney Anthony Shin for his guidance, hard work, and support. I am inspired by his genuine passion and interest in helping his clients. Thank you Anthony!

Anthony responded to my Avvo email within an hour, and gave me an hour and a half free consultation by phone. 24 hours later he had draft motions ready to go. He is a thoughtful strategist and his demeanor put me at ease.

Anthony was nothing I had thought an Attorney would be. We all know the stereotypes and our fear is we get very little other then legal advice and a bill. Anthony is not your stereotypical attorney, he provided so much more then sound legal advice and expert representation. He cared about me and what I was going through.
He was available to me and answered every question no matter how insignificant they were. I was anxious and nervous through out the entire process and he always made me feel at ease. The best feeling when dealing with difficult issues is to know someone cares as much about you and your feelings as they would with a family member or themselves. This is how Anthony made me feel.
I can not thank him enough and would not turn to any other Attorney ever if the need arises.

Anthony is young , vibrant and easy to work with. Anthony has a strong knowledge of the law and is able to break the law down into simpler terms for those of us who are a little less familiar. Anthony is extremely patient and did a great job at helping us through a very confusing and unfamiliar process. We would highly recommend Anthony to anyone who is looking for an attorney who will do all that he can to fight for fairness, not treat you like you are just another case number and ultimately do his best to deliver you with a favorable verdict.

Mr. Shin was court appointed to my case and he was awesome. No other words could describe him. He went to bat for me since day one and hasn't stopped. We meet on a number of occasions, he kept me informed, was always available for me and if not he didn't keep me waiting long, and if I had a question he had an answer or he would get me an answer. He also helped me with some issues with my husband. I think the world of Mr. Shin he is definitely a man of his word.
