Best in the area!
We recently had the pleasure to work with Raj Dua, and he truly exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds. He represented a family member who had received several careless speeding tickets, and was at risk of ruining their driving record and dealing with the harsh consequences that go along with that. Raj knew exactly how to avoid this from happening, and he swiftly took care of things. He obviously has relationships and connections, and is well respected in the courtroom. His advice and approach to our situation were spot on. We cannot recommend him enough.

Professional and easy to work with !
Mr. Dua “Raj” was a joy to talk, plan and work with through our case. Personable, knowledgeable and imminently reachable as to last minute tips, or reminders. I am so happy with our case outcome and the fact that matter has been closed is a relief, we received the best outcome possible too. I would work with Mr. Dua again, and again if need be. I cannot recommend him more strongly, and you would be remiss if you didn’t even call. Do yourself, (loved ones) a favor and seek this man’s council, you will not be sorry.

I'm Very Grateful to Have Worked w/ Raj!
Raj is calm, respectful, fair, & does a great job. A friend of mine referred a different attorney to me at first, who was charging nearly twice as much as Raj, and who was asking for much more from me. For example, I was always going to do community service, but Raj assured me I needed to do no more than 15 hours for my case, even when I offered to do more. Compared to Raj, the more expensive attorney told me I needed to do 50 hours of service.. Raj also communicated very clearly to me and answered all of my questions leading up to the case. In the end, my reckless driving charge was substantially lowered compared to the misdemeanor I would have faced otherwise. I will be referring any friends, family, etc. in the future to Raj.

Excellent Representation from Raj Dua
I was charged with a Reckless Driving violation by the VA State Police. I called Raj and after my phone conversation with him, I decided to hire Raj as my attorney. Raj was professional and really understood the law, the Fairfax Court and the procecutors. I did exactly what Raj recommended in preparation for my hearing. At my hearing Raj worked hard to reduce my charge to a non-moving violation and a substancially reduced fine. I could not have asked for anything more. If I ever need the services of a traffic court attorney, I'll not hesitate to call Raj. If any of my family members, friends or associates ever need legal help, I will always refer them to Raj. Thank you Raj for all your work on my case!

Superb attorney and Great Outcome!!!
I had a serious road accident and the officer in charge filed a misdemeanor case against me. Following that, I hired Mr. Raj Dua to represent my case. He is a fantastic attorney, a true professional and very responsive to my queries. Raj guided me through the whole process and made me feel at ease to have me prepared for court. The result of my case was exactly what I wanted. I have nothing but appreciation and confidence in him and I would definitely recommend him!

TTHE most responsive of 5 law firms that offered to handle my case.
Five area law firms contacted me the fall of 2021, offering to handle my reckless driving case in Northern Virginia. I spoke with three of these firms; two of them never followed up (even when I sent explanatory materials and called a second time). The third firm was Raj Dua's law practice where every single phone call, email, or text was immediately responded to by him personally. He told me the clear, specific steps I needed to take to give him the information he had to have to effectively present my case. Outcomes: 1. My reckless driving charge (a criminal misdemeanor) was reduced to a "traffic infraction." 2. Instead of having a potential 6-point offence on my driving record, I received zero points. 3. The maximum fine of $250 was reduced to $100 plus tiny court costs. 4. The same morning Raj presented my case he personally called me to convey its excellent outcomes, and that same day he wrote me an email to give me my case's specific details. Throughout this process (my first instance across 40 years of driving in which I had any infraction, which situation caused me great anxiety) Raj was personally available, reassuring, and totally effective. I could not ask for more.

High speed Reckless Driving charge
I got a high speed reckless driving ticket in Loudoun county. I'm new to VA and i had no idea that any speed over 85mph or 20+ over the speed limit is a criminal offense and will stay on your record forever. I'm so lucky to have found Raj, He was honest about my case and gave me detailed set of instructions and things to do before my court date. I did everything he asked me to do, but i was still worried that my case wont be reduced because my speed was over 90mph. On the court day i met raj, i saw him work with the prosecutor and the cop who gave me the ticket, He knew almost everyone in the court. Finally, he presented a solid case for the judge and my ticket got reduced to a normal speeding ticket. He was able to avoid jailtime and the criminal record. On top of everything he charged me way less than what other lawyers were asking me for my case. If you ever get a reckless driving ticket in VA, Raj is the man to call. Even if you never got a reckless ticket, i'd suggest you have Raj's number in your phone. I'm never gonna speed again, lesson learnt, Thanks Raj.

Great lawyer
I had a bad experience with a previous lawyer and I was lucky enough to come across Raj. I was surprised with how responsive he was, he answered all of my questions, listened to what I was hoping for, and even advised me. Raj helped me a lot and helped me from losing any points from my record. I recommend him to anyone that needs help.

Reckless driving
I got pulled over for going 56 in a 25 and was going to get charged with reckless driving. This was the first time that I got pulled over and I was freaking out. My Fiancée, girlfriend at the time, told me about Mr. Dua and I called him. He gave me a reasonable fee and was completely honest with what could be the results but promised that he will do everything he can to fight for me. He went to court for me and told me that I needed to do a driving improvement course. After that was done, I turned it in and the case got dismissed! I’m am glad that I had Mr. Dua represent me and you will not regret it.

Quick, Responsive, and Professional
The Dua Law Firm represented me on a reckless driving ticket in Alexandria for doing 45 in a 25. I researched him and reached out to the firm and heard back very quickly and Raj immediately jumped on it, literally! He was very available and highly responsive thru the whole process. He was able to get my ticket dismissed with no fines, no points, no court costs etc.

Great lawyer
I had a DUI case and blew .12 which is almost double the legal limit. Somehow he was able to drop it down to a reckless which is a awesome win! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.

Efficient and Great Outcome
Raj was very articulate with what I should expect with my case. He was able to offer different suggestions to improve the outcome of my court case and took time to explain each option. Overall he was able to get me a better outcome than we even expected and I'm very satisfied with his help on my case. Would highly recommend.
