I can't say enough positive things about Mr. Eric Demetriades: His achievements, the established Laurel Brigade Law Firm he works out of, and his outstanding resume speaks for itself— and seeing him at work is remarkable. The reverence that is reflected to him in the court room is visually apparent. I have never seen such a hard working, devoted, and genuinely sincere professional go above and beyond for their clients the way he does. An expert at his craft, I really like his "style" when presenting his defense before the court; he is persuasive, courteous and commanding.
I know all cases are different, but to touch a bit on the background of my situation: My loved one was despondent over his situation— actively incarcerated in Loudoun, with a lengthy wrap sheet and a mountain of evidence piled up against him. Mr. Demetriades did not shy away from his case, and did not treat him with any less respect or was condescending towards him in any way. Despite his extremely busy schedule, Mr. Demetriades was accommodating and kept him in the loop every step of the way; he took the time to visit him on multiple occasions and promptly responded to every correspondence— spoon-feeding us throughout this stressful situation. Mr. Demetriades is the by far the best, and I am eager and excited to recommend his services to everyone!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR EXCELLENT SERVICE!

I'm more than happy with Eric presenting my teenager who was charged with a felony on school ground. I had a couple of consultation with different lawyers, who for the most part wanted to spend time and money fighting prosecution head on.
Eric was the third and final lawyer I meet with, I really appreciated how Eric decided to look at the charge and my son's young age (15) and decided to reach out to the Prosecutor to try settle the matter out of court. Eric did explain that settling out of court was a long shot, but he was very confident that at the very least the felony would be dropped down to a misdemeanor without much effort on his part. This is where Eric's effort really worked out for us.
Eric took the time talk to my son, get to know him, and figured out that since it's his first brush with the law (even though it's a felony) the Youth Restorative Justice program would be the path to settle the charge. Eric worked with the Prosecutor and Youth Restorative Justice counselor to get him into the program. My son's felony charge was dismissed after a year of staying out of trouble and 50 hours of community service.
I can't thanks Eric enough for not accepting the easy way out of the case and instead taking the time to do what best for my son's outcome and his future. Thank You very much Eric.
