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.

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.
