Very Professional and Understanding
Mr. Griffitts was an amazing lawyer and a true counselor throughout my case. He offered good suggestions, listened intently, and never once passed judgement on the situation. In the end, he achieved an outcome even more favorable than I had imagined. I HIGHLY recommend him!

AMAZING
Benjamin took his precious time on Saturday evening to give me a free consultation over the phone and explained everything in details. He really wanted to help, most of the law firms that I had called in the area were overpricing me for their services. He was extremely knowledgeable. I was impressed by his ability to communicate the best course of action of my case in a simple but comprehensive way. I am so grateful he has called me today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Outstanding Legal Representation
I absolutely recommend Ben Griffitts if you need a tough, smart, well connected and known defense attorney. We needed Ben’s help twice, and both times, his research, advocacy, experience applied on our behalf, achieved an outcome that was better than we had hoped for. He was our first call and would recommend Ben to anyone who was looking for outstanding legal representation.

Reckless Driving Charge Dismissed - No points, no fine and no court fee
I was referred to Mr. Griffitts by another friend who had a reckless driving charge in 2019 and ended up with a competed dismissal. I also retained Mr. Benjamin Griffitts for a reckless driving charge to represent me at Alexandria City General District Court. I was extremely worried and nervous about its bad impact on my personal and professional life in case of conviction. In our first conversation, he listened to me very carefully & patiently and noted my statements. He explained to me the nature of the charge and possible outcomes. He also suggested me to do couple things before the trial date. He assured me that he and his team will do their everything possible to obtain best outcomes. He called me two days before the court date to touch-base everything he did and to ensure I am ready for the trial. We went to court and he presented all the documents to the prosecutor. He successfully convinced the judge, prosecutor and and the cop to dismiss the case which they did. No demerit points on my record, no court fee and no fine to pay. I am so regretful to Mr. Griffitts for all his efforts and the outcomes he secured in my case. Hopefully I wont need a lawyer again, but if I do, his phone number will be my first dial.

I found a lawyer for life; If you want the best call Ben Griffitts
I retained Ben for two reckless driving charges and from the very beginning he made me feel at ease. The first one: A driver hit me on the highway and wrecked his car, because of the interaction of the vehicles the state police charged us both with reckless driving in October 2019. Ben represented me when I was out of town giving me the ability to concentrate on work and all the other things in life that required my attention. He understood the sensitivity of a charge like this, even when COVID-19 shut the courts down and our case was continued all the way until November 2020 he made sure I knew he was taking care of everything. When we finally had our day he worked with the district courts to have this charge reduced from a Class 1 Misdemeanor to an infraction, the end result was I pay a fine and case is closed! The second charge was a reckless driving by speeding. I immediately called Ben and told him about my interaction with a very unprofessional officer, who did not even properly fill out the summons, questioned why I was in the neighborhood which I live in and charged me with speeding when I wasn't. I retained him again to fight this one all the way. End result, the case was dismissed! I'm almost 40 years old and this is the first time in my life I have ever had to hire an attorney and I am so glad that Ben was the guy. He was able to explain to me everything I needed to know about my situation, the law, how it applies, what could/may/might happen, what I need to do to prepare and he answered all the questions I had whenever they came up. The police officers, deputies, bailiffs, other attorneys and all the people in the courtroom knew I came with the best. Ben is a true professional and advised me to ensure the best possible outcome for my cases. He never filled my head with any false hopes just facts and came to the table with experience. At a time when I was facing charges that could impact my driving record and have serious consequences on my career Ben was there to guide me through the process and get me results that I could not be more happy about. For me, I know I have found a lawyer for life should I ever find myself in this situation again.

DWI 1st Offense
Attorney Griffitts is the absolute best attorney in Prince William County. A little while back I was charged with a DWI 1st offense. Worried about the implications/consequences that it could have on future professional and personal endeavors, my current secret clearance, and travel destinations - I searched for a lawyer quickly. I spoke with 5 lawyers, but knew that Attorney Griffitts was the best lawyer to hire! Having worked at law firms in the past as a paralegal and after discussing my worries and a game plan for what I thought would be a possible reduced charged, I knew that Attorney Griffitts would be the best. Attorney Griffitts was responsive and very easy to talk to. One week out from my court date, and the entire charge has been dropped!! Nolle prosequi!! Without his help, I don’t know what would have happened it my case.

Absolutely amazing performance!
When my son was attacked I called about 10 attorneys to interview them about representing us in court. Out of 10, Ben was THE ONLY ONE that took time to understand, ask questions, and genuinely cared about what I was saying. He answered all of my questions patiently and communicated promptly. His response was always on time and he was always prepared. In the courtroom, he was concise, deliberate, and strategic. He went above and beyond as an attorney and I always felt heard and taken care of. I would recommend Ben to anyone who needs a hard-working, honest, and knowledgeable attorney. He is great at what he does.

Ben did a GREAT job
Ben did a great job representing me in a recent proceeding. He got my charge dismissed and made the whole process so easy. Before hiring him he went over his plan with both me and my father and spent about 1 hr talking to each of us. He showed a lot more care in my case than other lawyers and was very personable. Would highly recommend!

Full satisfaction
Mr. Griffitts has been great throughout my case. He is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and he always has his clients' best interest in mind. His fees are quite affordable and he's very easy to contact. He responded on weekends, early mornings, late nights. To know your attorney is truly there for you is something you can't quantify. Add to that he knows the law. I will continue to use Mr. Griffitts as my lawyer if need be in the future, I am grateful for his help and would recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation. He helped me understand the case and kept me in the loop the entire time. Anytime I had a question about the case he was more than willing to answer it. Thank you!!

Great attorney and great guy
I unfortunately was charged with a possession of marijuana and was devastated. I’m a full time student, parent and work two jobs so This was the last thing I needed in my life. I searched the internet for the best attorneys I could find and hired Ben. He advised me to do community service and he was very reachable. After all was said and done I had a great experience with Ben and I would recommend him to anyone in the NOVA area.

Patient, Proficient and Professional
When I think of Attorney Griffitts, I think of the three Ps: Patient, Proficient and Professional. He’s patient. When I get met Mr Griffitts, I was at an all time low. I was facing my 4th DUI within a ten year window. My stress level was high and I was feeling discombobulated. I was annoyed and irritated at myself and I did not understand what my options were. He was there for me as if he truly understood my pain. He’s Proficient. Upon our initial meeting, he informed me that he had done research on a newly establish initiative to assist Veterans and thought I’d be a good candidate. He explained to me what the Veterans Docket was and when I had questions, he had answers. He had done his home work and I felt I had a chance at restarting my life, thanks to the expertise of attorney Griffitts. He’s professional. He served as a liaison when I needed it. He was always there, if I called with questions, he returned my call with answers. Benjamin Griffitts is a top notch individual and thanks to him, I’m getting another chance at getting my life back together. Thank you
