Where do I even begin? My first time meeting Drewniak was when I was facing reckless driving charges as a minor. given court-based probation for 6 months and permanently expunged if I kept a clean sleet during that time.
The next time I needed Drewniak's assistance was when I was being falsely accused of stealing a mustang and leaving it in front of my house (I am currently double-majoring in Chemistry and Math so I'm not that stupid). I was facing two felony grand larceny counts and one fell you count of grand theft auto. She told me that this was a clear cut case of racism (overplayed I know) and that the prosecution was basing my guiltiness by the color of my skin (typical in fairfax county). After months of the prosecution delaying the case for months, in the end, thanks to Drewniak's superb skills as an orator and attorney, I got the judge to not only drop all my charges, but to even apologize for the grievances and hardship this trial cost me.
Let's cut to the chase lawyers are expensive. But if money is not the issue, then Drewniak is your women. I hope I never need to see her again, but if I ever need an attorney she is a contact on my phone for when I truly truly need her

Attorney Drewniak defended my daughter in a felony shoplifting case complicated by serious mental health issues. Sandra was strong, decisive, knowledgeable and open-minded. The outcome was the absolute best we could have hoped for and we believe we could not have made a better choice for our daughter's legal defense.

Words cannot describe how thankful I am for the excellent work demonstrated by Mrs. Sandra Drewniak, attorney at Furlong and Drewniak, PLLC.
I have been represented twice by this firm, and on both occasions I received the same human touch needed for cases that involve criminal manners.
On one occasion, my ex wife tried to set me up with a bogus domestic charge, which she used to manipulate the system and obtain benefits at different levels. I interviewed different lawyers and I was sold by the professionalism and knowledge demonstrated by both Mrs. Drewniak and Mr. Furlong. However, even though I was impressed by our first interview, it became apparent that they knew what they were doing and their timing was perfect. Before trial, they prepared the case carefully and during trial, their experience was just unmatched. It was evident that my ex was lying, not only by the facts, but how these facts were presented, and the truth came out. I was exonerated of any charge.
On a second occasion, I was charged with drunk in public. To me, the charge was not only ridiculous, it was embarrassing given that I had been drinking at home and to the best of my knowledge, I was not drunk. Because of other details of the case, I was not willing to accept this charge. Other people just want to pay the fine and get over it. However, it was not my case. Mrs. Drewniak understood the case and with great tact and negotiation skills was able to get this charge dismissed.
I highly recommend Mrs. Drewniak and Mr. Furlong, they are honest, compassionate, professional and strong-minded lawyers that will represent your best interest. You cannot be in better hands.
