Mr. Bugg handled 2 Virginia reckless driving charges for my family. In both cases, he was extremely easy to communicate with either by phone or email and kept us informed each step of the way. One case was in Chesapeake and one was in Fairfax. He was very knowledgeable about each jurisdiction and the local authorities. In both cases, his work resulted in the charges being reduced to minor driving infractions. I would recommend Mr. Bugg to anyone.

Dontae represented me for several years on a complicated case. I was tired, frustrated, and at a low when I met Dontae. He gave me sound advice, provided me with reassurance when needed, and was a pleasure to work with. I hope I never need to call on a lawyer again, but if I did, Dontae Bugg would be my first and only call. I owe a great deal of gratitude to this man; gentle with his client and tough on the opposition. He is a man of morals and outstanding character.

I actually used this attorney twice. He is a real stand up guy. He knows his stuff. He will do everything in his power to win your case. ALL IN ALL HE HAS YOUR BEST INTEREST AT HAND!

Mr. Bugg will be there for you every step of the way gives sound advice – updates almost in realtime and explains the process as much as needed. As a busy technical person and travels a lot I appreciate the virtual connection that he gives for all your issues, questions or concerns. I tend to lean on logic over emotions. He personalize the processs to minimize the effect of your already unfortunate situation so you can concentrate more in normalizing/ recovery of your somewhat derailed life that has been marred by your momentary lapse of judgment. I highly recommend Mr. Bugg!

A lot of defense attorneys shy away from tough cases with challenging issues, not Dontae. Without a doubt, one of the top defense attorneys in Northern Virginia. Dontae is a tremendous litigator, student of the law and one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet.

Dontae is a committed advocate who is dedicated to his clients. He will zealously represent your interests and guide you through every step of the process. If you need a criminal defense attorney in Northern Virginia or Washington, D.C., I highly recommend Dontae.
