The very BEST! Honest, trustworthy, excellent communication, genuine
Thomas is an incredible attorney! From my very first meeting with him I knew I had found the right person to represent me. He answered every question, explained the possible outcomes and assured me that he would devote every effort to help me resolve my case. He was easy to contact, very responsive and incredibly knowledgeable. I had 100% confidence in him. He really helped to alleviate my fears. After 13 months I am overjoyed with the outcome! I have no doubt my results would not have been the same had I chosen different representation. Thomas went to bat for me and had every bit of legal knowledge to back up my defense. I am so grateful. If you need an attorney he is the one!!!

Thomas Soldan-Incredible Lawyer and Person
Thomas Soldan represented me in Loudoun General District Court in Leesburg, VA for a speeding ticket/traffic offense. In a court where these tickets are rarely (aka NEVER) reduced or dropped, Mr. Soldan was able to win a complete dismissal of my charge, based on his exceptional knowledge of the laws, excellent court manners and thorough preparation for my case. It seemed like he thought of every angle and was extremely respectful to all sides. Note, I did not have the best driving record, and I had many negative circumstances working against me in the case; Thomas still managed to win in the tough Loudoun Traffic Court! I carefully searched for representation, and immediately liked Thomas upon meeting him. He is a very genuine and empathetic person, while professional and knowledgeable. Other description? Well-spoken, honest, calm and collected, detail-oriented, diligent, funny, friendly. I believe that Mr. Soldan has an excellent reputation in many of the courts (with officers, court officials, judges, other attorneys) in Northern Virginia, and I am confident that there is not a better person to represent me for all of my future needs. Another note--when we won, he did not gloat! Always a plus for karma points-- classy in the court room!

Professional Defense Attorney
Mr. Soldan did a great job. I'm sure he has had more exciting and interesting cases, but my case was important to me and he certainly was there for me every step of the way. Ultimately the case was dismissed and I couldn't have been more pleased with his efforts.

EXCELLENT legal representation
Mr. Soldan is knowledgeable, well experienced, and an exceptional professional in his field. I came to him seeking representation for a charge that would have had enormous repercussions; it was not an easy challenge to overcome. He diligently gathered the necessary information, informed me of everything I needed to do pre-trial, and communicated with the prosecution on my behalf. He was readily available to respond to any and all questions/concerns every step of the way. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Soldan and his firm to anyone seeking excellent legal representation in Loudoun County, VA.

You want Tom in your legal corner
My daughter was involved in a domestic violence situation in Virginia, but I live out of state. After web reviewing many attorneys in the Leesburg area, I chose Tom. I could not be more pleased with my choice. Tom was very responsive and spent time listening to me and immediately went to my daughter's defense, which was a huge relief for me. After an unexpected turn of events he was ready to "do battle" for her, but was able to get the charges dismissed. Tom is highly knowledgeable, and knows the system. He is the attorney to have representing you.

DUI Dismissed
After hiring Thomas Soldan, I was given excellent advice and assistance in regards to my case of DUI and reckless driving. With Thomas as my lawyer I was able to get both of the cases dismissed. Throughout the entire process, Thomas made me feel that I made the right choice of legal representation, and I was correct when the verdict came back. Thomas was extremely professional and diligent, but always realistic about the potential outcomes of the case. If I ever need legal help in Loudoun county, I'll be sure to hire Thomas Soldan again.

Ultra responsive and extremely knowledgeable!
Mr. Soldan was referred to me by another attorney. Mr. Soldan immediately followed up with me after my outreach and stayed in touch with me through the following weekend. In the 7-8 times I reached out to Mr. Soldan, he always followed up with me within 24 hrs if not much sooner. I would highly recommend Mr. Soldan’s services.

Mr. Soldan has your back!
5 stars is not enough for Mr. Soldan. Having never been in the specific type of legal trouble that he specializes in, I was completely lost and worried. Luckily the personal reviews from his previous clients gave me confidence. Mr. Soldan responded with urgency and accuracy upon my initial request for consultation. Mine was a special case that extended past the usual 6 month period but resulted in the best outcome possible. In fact, because of his major network within the Loudoun County legal system, he was able to collaborate with the State in my favor. I'm beyond grateful for how Mr. Soldan helped and guided me. I'm confident he'll help you too.

Helped resolve a 25 year old issue.
Thomas helped me through the process of putting in a petition and getting rights restored that had been lost. He outlined what needed to happen, what the process was, and then what should happen. Things happened as he said they would in the time he said they would. He and his staff were also very responsive with communication and to answer questions when I had them. Thanks for the great work.

Top Notch Attorney!!
I had a very serious traffic charge against me. I interviewed a couple attorney's and went with Thomas Soldan given he was able to point out a couple flaws in the police report/discovery. He was very responsive during the 6 month process by email, text, and calls. If I had any questions he was more than willing to answer them. In the end, I got an extremely favorable outcome. If you have any traffic charges against you look no further Mr. Soldan will look out for your best interests.

Excellent attorney for a difficult case
Tom represented me in a very strange and complicated case. He explained everything to me very clearly. Was very communicative and responsive. Knew exactly what the outcome would be ( great outcome) and achieved it through his hard work. His knowledge and experience around the Fairfax court system is impressive. His insights into the law and the judges are equally impressive. I was very lucky to have Tom represent me in this case. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Understands the personal side of legal issues
Attorney Soldan was excellent. He assisted my son in a legal matter and was helpful and practical. Not only does he know the law and able to explain it but he also related well to the issues my son was facing and was understanding.

Absolute best
Mr. Soldan defended me during a DUI and worked to make sure I had the best outcome possible. He helped me through every step of the way and I could not be more grateful. He made the hardest, most stressful part of my life much more manageable to a really great result.

He will fight for you until the desired outcome becomes the reality of your case
Thomas has been my go to lawyer for anything regarding legal matters. Again over and over he never fails to surprise me with his expertise in the field as well as his professionalism and eagerness to fight for his clients. I’ve had about 5 different charges that he helped me out with in which I personally didn’t believe would have much of a choice but to live with them in my record the outcome was completely different than I thought and man he did deliver. Do yourself the favor and work with who’s able to deliver the outcome you desire from your situation. Hire Thomas you won’t regret it. If anything else occurs and I need his expertise I would go with him over and over.

Reckless Driving
Thomas is an amazing lawyer. I could not recommend him enough. Throughout the whole process he answered every question I had, responded very quickly and simply eased my mind. I got cited for reckless driving which can be a serious offense. Thomas got my charge lowered to a simple traffic infraction with only $100 fine + court costs and no points on my record. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer. Thank you again Mr. Soldan!

Great outcome
I'm beyond grateful for the work done by my lawyer Thomas Soldan. He explained all the pros and cons in regards to my DUI case. He worked with me thru it and although it was a very difficult and long process, things worked out for me. Thanks to him I have my job and my future back. Lesson learned, Thomas is a 10+ and I highly recommend to anyone going thru a DUI case. I can never thank him enough for his hard work and the excellent outcome in Court.
