First off, let me say that I selected Paul to represent my son based on AVVO ratings and a personal consult. My teenage son got a VERY high speed reckless driving charge on the Dulles toll road. Even though he professed his innocence, I knew it would be difficult to convince the court. Every other lawyer (3-4??) I spoke with said that jail time would be inevitable. Most Fairfax judges use a rule of thumb of "one day for every MPH above 90." In fact, the first prosecution offer was precisely that.
Fast forward, after two continuances, at Mr. McGlone's request, we went to trial. Mr. McGlone's preparation was second to none. He did extensive research on the legality of the traffic stop, and without going into detail, got the judge to see the argument from his perspective. At that point, he was able to strike a deal with the prosecutor that avoided any jail time or license suspension. The result was a plea to the reckless violation, a suspended sentence, and a fine. In my opinion, the result could not have been any better.
Mr. McGlone clearly did a lot of research on the case, and was much more prepared than the prosecutor appeared to be. I am convinced that is what led to the positive outcome. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr. McGlone 100 times over.

Impressive Results / Always Responsive / Thorough / Works on Holiday --
--- Normally I never write reviews, but Mr. McGlone has been stellar and worth the effort.
In short, after assessing 12 other firms to handle the case, I chose Mr. Paul McGlone. I reached out and he responded with 15 minutes to my call at 5pm on a Friday. We spoke for 45 minutes to assess my complicated case involving two state jurisdictions' DMVs. That Monday - JULY 4 (a holiday) he was in the office working on my case. And by Wednesday we were in court and he had reached out to his contacts at VA DMV and got the result I needed by Friday. And there have been follow-on items related to this matter that he still doggedly tracks and pursues-- he is always available by phone, text, email, and in the office. His advice, counsel, guidance, and wisdom and sincere interest in me as a person - has meant and continues to mean a lot. It's worth a call to speak to Mr. McGlone.

I had a interesting case of a refusal to breathalyze charge but no DUI/DWI. Mr. McGlone watched all the footage with me and was very communicative during the entire process. Ultimately, the case was dismissed and I never went to trial! With my job potentially being affected, I feel really blessed to have worked with Mr. McGlone!

I endorse this lawyer. Paul is an extremely experienced and well respected lawyer willing to exchange thoughts with his colleagues. I enjoy speaking with Paul because he is very knowledgeable and approachable. I see him regularly in Fairfax County and other jurisdictions.

Mr. McGlone, simply put, is the man you want in your corner if you have been charged with any traffic, alcohol, or drug related charge. He is a man with incredible skills in the courtroom and is also great with his clients. I could not recommend him more highly, and I personally recommend him to all who come to me with these types of cases in Fairfax County and the greater Northern Virginia area.
