I had a consultation with Tom Rock. I found peace. His recommendation was spot on. You can't find a better lawyer in this area. Tom will listen to you and find the best course of action for your unique situation. He knows the right stuff and the right actors involved. Tom has cut to the core ability to dissect your problem and reveal the solution. Is it a ridiculous idea to let Tom fix your problem and put your mind at ease?

Saved My Life & Business
Tom absolutely saved me. HIs professionalism and care for his clients is unmatched. I was facing very serious charges and Tom got them dismissed. Our case started before COVID and it took 8 months to get it to finally go to court. He stuck by me the whole time and always kept his word. I am forever indebted to him.

I don't even know where to start, when it comes to Tom. I adore him professionally and personally. I unfortunately learn the hard way, and I've made mistakes. Tom always saw past that, and never judged me. He took me on as a client when my last lawyer passed away, mid case. I loved my last lawyer, but Tom is a SHARK when it comes to the courtroom. He's unfortunately had to represent me a few times, but every time, I knew walking in with him would give me my best chance, and he has never let me down. There was one instance where the charging officer completely lied, and Tom called him out on it. There have been times I've walked away with all charges dismissed. He's always been prompt, professional, and reliable. I will always recommend him out when I find someone in need. He's represented some of my clients; he's actually representing a family member right now, and I know Tom will serve him well. If he does get busy, there's a reason, and you need to try again. He will always follow through for his client, and he will always get back to you. Having him as my lawyer gave me a chance to turn my life around, when I couldn't see a way out. Everyone makes mistakes, and he didn't let mine get the best of me. If you're reading this Tom, I will always feel indebted to you. Thank you for everything.

Dedicated lawyer and a very kind person
Mr. Rock is so compassionate and understanding. Navigating the legal system is very scary and he was very supportive throughout the long process. Mr. Rock knows the court process and legal community. He explained exactly what to expect at each hearing, fielded all my calls and patiently answered all my questions. Mr. Rock even called after a full day in court, on weekends and even on a holiday - his day never ends. It truly made a difference to have someone believe in the goodness of my son and understand a mother's fears. I hope you never need his expertise but if you do, I highly recommend Mr. Rock. He is so kind and sincerely cares about helping people.

The best lawyer in Virginia.. I’m not kidding.
Mr. Rock is by far the best lawyer I have ever hired. His ability to win in court and show incredible results is why I still hire him every time I find myself in any issues with the law. His compassion for his clients is by far the best quality of him. Mr. Rock will fight your case with every ounce of power he has and show you results. Coming from someone who has talked to many “lawyers,” they just want your $$ but Mr. Rock wants to help you and see you into a better future. If your looking from someone to represent you, hire someone else. If you need someone to fight for you, hire him and you won’t regret it. I promise.

Very Good Attorney. Consummate Professional
I hired Mr. Rock to represent me for a reckless driving charge that involved very high speed. He was friendly and professional and I have referred all of my friends to him. I recommend him to anyone who needs lawyer.

Great Lawyer
Lawyer Rock represented me in a dui charge. He saw through the district attorney's games and took the case to trial. I was found not guilty. A lot of the lawyers I talked to before I hired him tried to b.s. me but he was the real deal. No b.s., just results.

Tom Rock is such a good lawyer. Hire him
Thomas Rock represented our daughter and literally saved her career. He promised he would do his best for us and in the end ALL CHARGES WERE DISMISSED!!!! If you need a lawyer, hire him. He's not like all of the other shady lawyers floating around out there. We talked to a bunch of lawyers before hiring him. All they cared about was getting our $$$. Not Tom, his approach was completely different. He made us feel like we were actual people and we mattered. And what made it even better was the fact that we won. I absolutely recommend this lawyer.

"Tom Rock rocks. When I needed coverage for a Loudoun County court hearing for a time sensitive matter that had me in another jurisdiction, my first choice of a colleague unhesitatingly referred me to Tom when the colleague was also unavailable. Tom ran with the ball and accomplished what we needed, dealing gracefully with my pre-court date texts updating him on the situation. Tom was at once a gentleman and effective throughout. Deeply thanking and bowing to Tom Rock."
