    Having a lawyer as a client is always a difficult proposition, but I can say without any equivocation or reservation, that David represented me with the highest level of professional competence. He was always responsive to and appreciated my endless questions. I was especially appreciative of his extensive experience and his logical and practical application of the law to my particular facts. I highly recommend David to anyone who is is need of a family practice attorney.

    ...then you need to First Class representation of David Duff and the Duff Law Firm. Mr. Duff and his associates represented me in a complex civil litigation case during which the other side threw every possible charge against me except the kitchen sink and used no less than five attorneys from three different law firms, including the alleged big guns from McGuire and Woods, to make their case. Mr. Duff stuck with me all the way and he, his associates, and I worked together as a team during almost two years, a nonsuit and a re-suit, a win, an appeal, a win of the appeal, and the final recognition of the other side that they were never going to take me down. Mr. Duff always tried to keep my fees as low as reasonably possible too while still ensuring that I was as responsibly represented as possible. I will forever be grateful to Mr. Duff, Adam Kronfeld, Alex Lewis, and all of the special people at the Duff Law Firm for their exceptional handling of my case. You are - in a word - awesome!

    David Duff has been my attorney for over 25 years because he gets positive results, knows his business, cares about his clients and gets the job done. I hired another attorney to do my divorce over 25 years ago and after a number of months and quite a large bill I had nothing to show for the time or money. I met David Duff and explained my situation - within two weeks of taking my case he had child support established and even got my bill from the other attorney waived. As a young mother of two going through a tough time, I finally had someone in my corner that I could trust. He helped me through multiple child support issues in the course of the divorce and deftly handled the separation of property.

    David successfully litigated a financial issue with a custodial account for my daughter that was terribly mishandled. The case lasted almost a year and he never backed down - because of David my daughters funds were salvaged and she graduated from JMU debt free. He also successfully negotiated a settlement with a large rental car company that was clearly trying to bully us.

    He handles all my legal matters from wills to advanced directives and even my grown children now rely on him for legal advice and assistance.

    When a person seeks out an attorney it's typically accompanied by a host of personal emotion so having someone in your corner that you can trust and has your best interest in mind is crucial. If you want someone that will get the job done efficiently, effectively and successfully call David Duff.

    I was a 25-year-old going through a divorce, so that means 2 things: I was terrified of judgment and I had absolutely NO idea what I was doing. I heard about David and the Duff Law Firm through a friend and decided I would go through with a consultation. Nancy, who helps manage the firm, walked me through the entire process. She answered all of my questions and reassured my nerves, never once making me feel ashamed of my situation. She made me feel very calm and empowered me to take the next step. When I met with David, I was still a bit nervous, but his personable nature and expert knowledge instantly reassured me that I was in good hands. He told me that my case was fairly simple, and walked me through the process and expenses. As my case unfolded, it became obvious that it wasn't as open and shut as we thought. David and his staff did an excellent job at explaining WHY things were going differently than expected, and again, never hesitated to answer my questions. The staff communicated the finance portion in a very timely manner so I had time to prepare for payments, and I always received a copy of everything that was filed. They have a secure payment system and I never felt like my personal information was being mishandled. Even though my relationship with my ex was not hostile, they handled all communications with him, which helped us both heal on an emotional level. Duff and his team were courteous and civil with him and never once made him feel negatively about the situation. All in all, my divorce took about 6 months to be finalized. I feel like it was the right amount of time to process everything while reaching a timely resolution. I give David and the Duff Law Firm the highest recommendation for any family law needs. They work hard for their clients and are very experienced.

    I hired David to handle my divorce. He was extremely professional, candid, responded to questions and concerns promptly and got me a fair and equitable settlement. He was efficient with his time and provided me with the confidence and comfort he was looking out for my best interest throughout the divorce process.

    I am a single mom and hired David Duff for custody and child support. We managed to avoid court by his negotiating an agreeable settlement which saved a great deal of money, time and emotional stress. I will be forever grateful for his help and support through this most difficult time and would highly recommend him to others.

    I hired attorney David Duff for a suit over $1 million. It was a big mistake. I've worked with a number of attorneys over the years and his work on my case was disgraceful. In my original meeting with Duff I made it clear I wanted him personally to handle the case and he gave me his word that he would be the one to do the majority of the work in the case. As the months went by I realized the man's word means nothing. For months before the case he did hardly anything while people with little experience did the work. Right at the time of two day trial He did a couple of hours of work and was unprepared for trial. Even though I had provided him with many important contradictions in the transcripts from the defendants testimony in four different previous trials, things that could have easily won my case. He didn't know these extremely important contradictions from his lack of preparation. It was the heart of the case. All that money in legal fees and all that time wasted because he did not prepare properly for the trial. He refunded a few thousand dollars of attorney fees for his lack of preparation. However that paled in comparison to the money I had paid him. All that time and energy lost because he not do his job properly. I was unable to get justice because did not do his job. Also when I sought legal advice on the law in a divorce he gave me was not correct.
