Great Lawyer!!
I can't say enough good things about Joseph Yoon! Mr. Yoon is a true professional and really cares about you. It was a very LONG process due to covid 19 it took over 2 years for my case to be finally settled (and we WON!). He is passionate and won’t give up fighting for you.I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Reckless driving ticket
Joseph Yoon is the best lawyer in Virginia, and has the best customer service ever. He is very informative about the process and your odds. He is passionate and won’t give up on you or your case. Very honest and straight forward. He really worked hard on my case. He was compassionate, understanding, attentive, hardworking and honest. He helped me win a reckless driving charge even though I was ready to give up and just accept defeat. He said no we can beat this case and that’s just what he did. Thanks to him I don’t have a record.

Simply amazing.
Joseph Yoon is the man, the myth, the legend. He is a true professional and makes everything easy from minute one. I was referred to Yoon by one of my friends who found great success with him before. I got a speeding ticket in Arlington County and got a very favorable result. Everyone knows Yoon is the best. During my aggressive driving course, our instructor went around the room and asked who everyones lawyer is. Other students were having issues with their attorneys. I kid not not, when I said "Joseph Yoon," the instructor paused and said, "oh he is famous around here - you're good." If you get a ticket in Northern Virginia, USE JOSEPH YOON. Don't take the risk and try any other attorneys. If you want results, want to mitigate the risk of your case going unfavorably, and want an affordable/professional/efficient attorney, there is no-one else but Yoon. Can't sing his praises enough! Would recommend to all my friends and family members.

I highly recommend Attorney Joseph Yoon!
I was stopped on Route 95 North in Fairfax County, Virginia and was ticketed for driving 77 mph in a 55-mph zone. Since the ticket was for more than 20 miles over the posted speed limit, I was cited for reckless driving. I was worried about having my driving license suspended, negatively impacting my auto insurance and I read that in Virginia you could go to jail if convicted for reckless driving. I went online and found Attorney Joseph Yoon who was a highly recommended defense attorney. After talking with Attorney Yoon, he put my mind at ease and I hired him to represent me in court and he told me that I did not have to appear in court if I did not want to be there. Attorney Yoon got my violation significantly reduced and called me on the telephone from the courtroom to advised me what had transpired. I was very pleased with the outcome and thanked him for his efforts. Attorney Yoon was not satisfied with the initial outcome because he felt there was more to the story. He kept working for me and called me again an hour later to advise me that he was able to go back to the prosecutor, raise an additional defense regarding the accuracy of the speeding charges against me and have the state drop the charges completely. My driving record is now clear of the speeding and reckless driving charges as if I was never charged to begin with. The incident will not appear on my DMV driving record and it will not impact my auto insurance. I highly recommend that you hire Attorney Joseph Yoon, he knows the law and he works for you to make sure that you get a fair day in court. Always have an attorney when you go to court and ALWAYS have Attorney Joseph Yoon in court representing you! I highly recommend Attorney Joseph Yoon.

Reckless Driving violation turned into a minor Failure to Obey a Highway Sign
I am so glad I hired Joseph Yoon to represent me in court for my reckless driving violation. I was worried about license suspension and what that would mean for my business and car insurance premium, but Joseph was great at getting me a low fee and changed the conviction from a criminal misdemeanor to a minor traffic infraction. I highly recommend him. Thanks again.

Joseph Yoon - Best In Class Attorney for Virginia Reckless Driving Cases
After hiring Joseph Yoon to represent me for my reckless driving charge, there is absolutely no question that he is the Cream of the Crop when it comes to defending these difficult Virginia driving cases. I was charged going 90 mph / 55 mph eastbound on the Dulles Toll Road (35 mph over the speed limit). After reading about Virginia driving laws, I was sure that I was doomed given that I was traveling so significantly above the speed limit. Joseph not only put my mind at rest upon initially speaking with him in the initial consultation, but illustrated such a deep understanding of Virginia law that I knew at the onset I was in good hands. Despite my difficult charges, and despite being up against prosecutors who really did not want to budge on my case, Joseph Yoon was able to get the charges against me fully DROPPED - you heard that correctly, not reduced but my charges were completely and fully DROPPED. Getting a reckless driving ticket in Virginia is a scary thing, and hiring Joseph Yoon to represent me was one of the smartest decisions I could have ever made. Simply put, Joseph Yoon is best in class. I will be recommending him to everyone and anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation. I think I echo everyone else who has been represented by Joseph when I say that if you want to hire the best, hire Joseph Yoon.

Great Lawyer
Mr. Yoon took my reckless driving case of 54 in a 25. He was very professional, and after my initial call with him I was much less nervous about my charge, even though it would not be an easy case to get dropped due to the high speed. I completed the tasks Mr. Yoon requested, he was very helpful and responsive along the way. Mr. Yoon represented me in court so I did not have to appear, and was able to work out a deal to get my reckless dropped to a standard speeding ticket. I am so glad I went with the Yoon firm with my case, they were able to get me a great result, and would highly recommend them to anyone facing a traffic violation.

Excellent
Joseph was professional, competent and successful. My wife received a reckless driving ticket and was certain she wasn't going as fast as the officer said. Joseph had it reduced several times over and throughout the entire ordeal kept us informed on how to best handle the court proceedings. I highly recommend him!

Joseph is Your Man!
Joseph just recently completed his representation of our son on a DUI charge -- and got all charges dismissed by the judge. It was a truly amazing outcome and we were extremely appreciative not only of his legal skills, but also his extensive knowledge of the Fairfax County criminal justice system, including prosecutors and judges, and his unwavering commitment to our son's case. The case dragged out for quite some time, and we kept expecting Joseph's enthusiasm to diminish as he had obviously put quite a bit of time into our "fixed fee" matter. But this is not what happened. He maintained his commitment to our son's case and never showed any decrease in attention or determination. And the end result was complete success! Joseph is also a great guy personally,and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.

You're in good hands
Mr. Yoon represented me for a criminal offense which may have had detrimental results in my professional career. His professional demeanor immediately put me at ease and was proven when my case was dropped. Mr. Yoon is a timely and highly skilled attorney that will fight for his clients till the end. What's important to me as a client is the essence of time. Whenever I had any questions or concerns, no matter how big or small, Mr. Yoon would respond back promptly with a clear explanation and left no question unanswered. Anyone who is seeking legal representation is lucky to have Mr. Yoon by their side and I highly recommend him! I have finally found a trustworthy attorney I wouldn't hesitate to work with again in the future.

Mr. Yoon saved me thousands!
Last year, I had the opportunity to witness firsthand Mr. Yoon's outstanding negotiation skills. Thanks to Mr. Yoon, I was able to save thousands of dollars! Understanding exactly what I wanted, he worked out a deal for me that was unheard of in the field before. When people familiar with the matter learned about the terms that Mr. Yoon won for me, they all asked in awe how it was achieved. His approachable personality and excellent interpersonal skills combined with his depth of legal knowledge all contribute to his great success as a lawyer. I will always be grateful for the time and effort Mr. Yoon put in for me, and have already recommended him to my friends and family!

Excellent Lawyer
I used to live right across the street from Dunn Loring Metro station. As always, on my way to the metro in the morning, would walk across the street to get to the station instead of walking all the way to gallows rd then waiting for the light and cross. I never heard of anyone getting a jay walking ticket until it happened to me. It was ridiculous $200!!!!! I contacted Joseph Yoon after a friend referred me to him and he had the whole ridiculous charge dropped and compensation wise, Joseph said not to worry about it because I was referred by his close friend. In exchange I promised I would refer him whenever someone needs a lawyer. Joe's the man
