Phenomenal lawyer - got DUI dropped!
Matthew Crowley is excellent at his craft. He's hard-working, responsive, and above all knows everything about the law. For my case--which was a charge for DUI as well as refusing a breathalyzer, Matthew was able to get everything dropped for a single reckless driving charge. No regrets whatsoever, and I'm blessed that I came across Matthew in the first place. Worth every penny!

Excellent Results
Mr. Crowley was fantastic. He listened to my individual needs and was able to get the best outcome possible. He and his paralegal team were very responsive and took a lot of the stress out of the process. My charges were reduced so as to minimally affect both my home and work. I would recommend to anyone who was in need of a good attorney.

The best lawyer to have
Mr.Crowley did an amazing job as my attorney. He has always been honest, professional and on point. Throughout the whole process there was never one time where I felt Mr.Crowley was not doing everything he could to get the job done. My initial consultation was very thorough and honest, I had met with someone prior but I knew when I talked to Mr.Crowley that he was the one I wanted to hire. I was being charged with 3 felony charges and he was able to get all of my felony charges dropped. Mr.Crowley thank you so much for turning such a terrible experience into a good one. I appreciate you so much! If you ever have any problems in VA do not hesitate to call Mathew Crowley you will be in good hands.

Professionalism and Quality Work!
I found that Mr. Crowley had a high level of integrity and knowledge, and seemed genuinely concerned about the case as an individual, rather than just another case number on the dock. During the trial, Mr. Crowley asked all the relevant questions, reviewed all the documents of the opposing counsel, he found the inconsistencies with the plaintiff’s testimony, and was VERY concise with the cross examination. I expected the best he had to offer and he delivered. I highly recommend Mr. Crowley!

Case dismissed, records expunged!
I hired Matthew Crowley as counsel, and he handled my case very well. I had no prior experience with the court system and had a lot of (mostly basic) questions, and he answered all of them with patience and clarity. He was willing and able to explain each step of the process, including his actions (e.g. requesting a continuation) and why he took them in this case. My case was dismissed before the trial date, largely in part due to his work, and he did the work to have my records expunged. Thank you, Matthew!

Will take care of you as if you were FAMILY!
Mr. Crowley is very responsive and punctual with respect to time. I would get immediate responses via text/email and never did I feel neglected or feel like just another client. Since the very first time I heard his voice I knew I found the right person, not lawyer, but person who I wanted to represent me. Mr. Crowley opened up time in his busy schedule to meet with me in person upon my request numerous times in order to bring me comfort and clarity. He is very flexible with payment plans although I chose to pay everything off upfront just because I felt so good about his services. If you’re looking for an attorney that is truly caring, someone who’s kind hearted, and who has genuine compassion for people and life’s circumstances, please look no further! Thank you Mr. Crowley for all the amazing work that you do! God bless you and your family, always!

Good attorney
Mr.Crowley was very effective in handling my case. I appreciate how he kept a clear line of communication at all times and addressed any question that came up. I would undoubtably recommend Robinson Law to any friends of mine that are in need of their services.

How great is Matthew R. Crowley as your lawyer ?
Naturally I’m a good kid but I’ve had my run in is. I caught myself in some trouble passing through Virginia that seemed like I would not get out of easy. I had never before hired a Lawyer to help me on a case before gee am I glad I found Mr. Crowley. I had a couple options previously and with Matthews reviews I was applaud by his reviews. But you know when you see a promotional commercial and it’s never as good as it was promoted to be ? Well Matthew R. Crowley was that and more ! I contacted Mr. Crowley and felt the support and concern he gave my case. Even in the consultation prior to me hiring him he was openly detailed and helpful. With that being said, I let him know after the consultation that I didn’t have any money at the time. Some lawyers would have thought you wasted their time and wouldn’t respond to you even when you came up with the money. But no Mr. Crowley was very understanding! He worked with me and wasn’t too busy or nonchalant for me to hire him when I came up with the money. On my case he was very strategic and precise with how he handled my case. I didn’t have to say anything in court. Both of my charges were dismissed. Mr. Crowley is the epitome of a professional yet people’s lawyer and if you’re in need contact. Him !

Mr. Crowley: knowledgeable and experienced Attorney
I am very thankful to have Mr. Matthew Crowley on my side as Defense Attorney. He is knowledgeable and experienced in Virginia Criminal and Traffic Law and Procedure. He studies my case, identify possible strengths and weaknesses, explain to me how the Prosecutor may develop the case and design defense plans to ensure positive outcomes. He was easily reachable whenever I needed to discuss and promptly provide update on the progress of the case. The case went to trial, he presented substantial arguments and the Judge dismissed the DWI case. I am very thankful for his legal advice, time and dedication.

Favorable outcome
I got arrested for hash oil which is a felony in Virginia. I was very concerned as this could drastically change my life for the worst. I had previously called several lawyers but no one heard me out like Susanna of Robinson Law. The consultation with her really stood out among the other lawyers and firms, which really made it a easy decision for me. She emailed me all the information and from then on out my freedom was in Mr. Crowleys' hands. He was very professional and kept me informed on what to expect at each court date. The eight months of waiting for lab results caused a lot of anxiety for me but I knew Mr Crowley and Robinson Law were on my side. He sat down with me at my final court appearance and went through the options (I was pleasantly surprised that there were a few to choose from). In the end I think he got me a very favorable outcome, which was simple marijuana possession, a $250 fine, can't get in trouble for a year, six months suspended VA license (which is irrelevant for me since I am out of state). The best part was no probation! Thanks Mr. Crowley, you really delivered!
