Lawyer is a Monster!
I had a charge that would have caused me to lose my license for 6 months. I thought for sure I would have to take something. However Jad was able to get it completely thrown out. He is very well connected in the courthouse and I highly recommend.

Beyond grateful and satisfied.
I had a reckless driving charge with 2 past reckless drivings already. (smh) and I was running out of time. I was referred to Jad by a friend. I was extremely worried about the outcome. I didn’t have a lot time before court and Jad still took my case. I thought even with pure luck I would still get charged with the main charge or at least a really bad speeding reduced charge but to my surprise he was able to deal with the prosecutor and state trooper and get my charge reduced down to a failure to obey highway traffic sign, which is beyond amazing. I’m beyond thankful and happy with everything. As far as professionalism and everything else he was also great! I would definitely recommend.

Best Lawyer ever!
My son had a car accident and the police gave him a reckless driving ticket guessing he must have had speeding... We were very fortunate to find Jad as our Lawyer. He was true to his promises & charged us most reasonable for his services. We received good support from his office during the months when the case was continued. Finally he was able to reduce the charge to not obeying highway sign with $220 fine which was a blessing! We absolutely recommend Mr. Jad Sarsour.

102 mph, not guilty fairfax
Jad was able to get my 102 in a 55mph case not guilty. He found a technicality in officers paperwork and convinced judge to dismiss it. The guy before went up with same speed and different lawyer and got 10 days in jail. Jad is a great lawyer and this is the second time he got my charge dismissed .

Saved me from losing clearance
I hired Jad Sarsour for a reckless driving case and he got it reduced to a speeding infraction. It was not easy but he made the effort and it was worth it in the end! I was going to 90mph and he reduced it to an infraction.
