I needed an attorney that specialized in both criminal law and DUI/DWI cases as a result of an error on ASAP's part and an obstruction of justice charge. Not only did Eric get the motion against ASAP approved so that I could reinstate my license, he also fought the prosecutor in trial on my obstruction charge and got my case dismissed. He's not afraid to fight for justice for his clients, which is what you'd want in a defense attorney. Lastly, Eric is very well versed in law, he's organized and he kept me up-to-date throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him!

Mr. Demetriades is a rare find. He is an excellent lawyer, quick, smart, passionate and on top of all that, an amazing human being.
He handled our case perfectly, always responding on time, working after hours and being an excellent supporter.
I say he is a rare find, because for him, justice is more important than anything else. His passion for his work goes beyond a 9-5 job and fees.
I am so grateful we had him on our side. He has a strong network of colleagues that respect him and I'm sure, many clients like us that admire him and are grateful for his work.
If you want your peace of mind restored, Eric is the right man for the job.

Eric's reputation precedes him. He is very sharp, knows the law in and out, and just as importantly, knows the who and where in the locale where he practices. He is very honest about the possible results, but will work with you to get the best possible outcome for your situation.
I received a reckless driving ticket, and needless to say was very concerned about the ramifications. I looked up Eric here, and noticed all the 5 star reviews. I'm glad I went with him, and would not hesitate to hire him again if need be. He communicated clearly, and responded fast. When I showed up for the court date, he had already handled everything.
Truly an exceptional expreince

Due to Eric's great work today and always I felt the least I could do was write a review so that others could see how great he has been. Eric is there when you need him and never sugar coats possible outcomes. Even hearing the worst situation, you are at ease because you know that Eric will do the best job and recieve the best outcome. He took on my Husband's cases with one weeks notice, not nice of us. Eric couldn't have done better with the cases put in front of him. A DUI 2, with a current DUI 1 pending which both would result in a felony probation violation. I was sure I wasn't seeing my Husband for a good bit there, but he is coming home!!! I give it all to Eric. Eric has went FAR BEYOND all expectations. I can honestly say that Eric will not disappoint and you will be at ease with him by your side. If I haven't made it clear enough yet, Eric will be your BEST defense in the court room!

So like most people caught up in life things tend to happen where you run behind making you late for work. I was pulled over and charged reckless driving in Leesburg VA one day without any real evidence against me other than an officer saying he saw me run a yellow light and guessing I was speeding. I understood that the charge was serious and I needed real help. After days and days of contacting different attorneys all of which seemed to give partial advice with outrageous pricing I googled best reckless driving lawyers in Leesburg Va and came across the Laurel Brigade law group. Once in touch with them like most attorneys you reach to try to get a consultation, I was lucky enough to speak to with Mr. Demetriades. Let me just say that of all the time spent reaching out and speaking with different lawyers he immediately put me at ease about the case and very swiftly told me not to worry. Here's why I recommend asking for Eric specifically, not only had I just started a new job and been stretching to make ends meet so I didn't have all the money to retain him up front, but I also waited until the Friday before my second case. Now of course I don't recommend trying to wait until the last minute, but I was in a tight spot and to me that says all the world about ones character to understand that people go through hard times and still go above and beyond to help someone you haven't met face to face. Eric not only arranged to work out my payments to him with a better price, he set up things on my court date so that I didn't have to even show up. I had left work to go anyway which he called me over and over again to let me know what he worked out which once I arrived I actually witnessed him calling my phone which had to be put in storage per court rules. Long story short I cannot thank Eric enough for going above and beyond not only for being a last minute hero getting my charge removed to a simple fine! But for giving the best experience for a last minute call to help. He gives you a presence that you know him personally and treats you like a friend instead of just another client. 5 stars all the way!

Eric Demetriades is first and foremost a great person. He helped me in a time of need not once but twice. I would recommend him for anybody dealing with a DUI. I was looking at some serious stuff with my 2nd and 3rd DUI pending. Eric got me out of jail and gave me my life back. I can't emphasize my praise for this guy. He knows the right people and he'll work with you if your good for it. Bottom line awesome lawyer.

Eric's knowledge of the Loudoun County court and his experience in defending similar cases was instrumental in achieving the best possible outcome. His knowledge of the prosecutors at the court was crucial in how and when my case was scheduled.
Eric was very timely with communications and I would certainly, if necessary, retain his counsel again.

I believe that Mr. Eric Demetriades handled my case in the most satisfactory manner professionally and personally. He performed his duties in an outstanding manner and in the most commendable way. His accomplishments were beyond my expectations as he was able to reduce the penalty to the maximum minimum what I expected and honestly exceeded my expectations of such a reduction. I will not hesitate to hire his services at any time. He should be commended for his exemplary services.

From the beginning consultation the only thing I was promised is that every stone would be uncovered. I was looking at two years in prison for a fourth DUI. Even though I was not traffic stopped I pulled into a driveway that had a "house watch" so the officers washed there hands and didn't think twice about the case. Eric was persistent on trying to contact both officers with no avail, and when going to the preliminary he got every question out that we needed. Me being shaky and nervous as usual in court he was confident and prepared. Eric ended up filling a motion to suppress any evidence, which included several valid virginia Supreme Court cases that were directly in line with my case. We ended up being granted the motion to suppress and the district attorney still tried to fight it until he new nothing else could be done. Eric has a team that supports him and gives any needed added advice when things get hairy. I would recommend Eric to anyone that is in need of a confident well backed lawyer, you might pay a little more but it's your future.

Eric is a very good lawyer and he is always friendly and tries his best to help you. My case situation was tough and not under our control, but Eric was very patient and never gave up. Finally the judge made a correct decision for us.
