Words cannot express how lucky I am to have Andrei J. Kublan on my side!
Mr. Kublan is a phenomenal attorney. He represented me in a divorce and custody case. This was a complicated case and a very emotional one for me. Mr. Kublan calmed my fears and instilled confidence in me when he laid out our decisive plan of action. All his predictions were very honest, he never gave me false expectations. The level of involvement, care, and attention to my case was and continues to be outstanding. Mr. Kublan and his staff have always kept me informed. Andrei was so extremely respectful, supportive and honest. He made me feel very comfortable with the entire process, guided me and gave me great advices. Andrei J. Kublan is unmatched professional, hardworking, responsible, transparent, communicative, relentless, extremely knowledgeable, and most importantly of all, he has strategic and “out of the box” thinking. Mr. Kublan is brilliant in the court room. He navigated the trial process beautifully! Ultimately Mr. Kublan received the best outcome possible and I can not thank him enough for the representation I was provided!

Outstanding service!
Mr. Kublan represented me in my complicated custody case. He is an outstanding, knowledgeable, well respected attorney. I am so thankful for the support, time and effort that Mr. Kublan put in my case. He is focused, organized, efficient and very responsive. During the most stressful time of my life, his guidance, legal expertise and confident demeanor made me feel at ease. He developed a strategy and explained to me the step-by-step course of action. I felt safe trusting him with my case. Mr. Kublan was so impressive in the courtroom. His well articulated arguments were very convincing. He was really fighting for me. I felt safe going into this battle, having such a professional, knowledgeable, confident attorney by my side. I could not have been happier with the service I received. I highly recommend Mr. Kublan for any family related cases.

Andrei brought me back from the dead
Kublan Khan PLC represented me in my nasty and contentious separation and divorce battle my ex wife brought forth.  Using our only daughter as a leverage, she nearly made me homeless and denied access to my daughter.  I went to a couple of law firms for paid consultation but I did not feel the connection that I could trust them with my life. I was lost, scared and intimidated until I met Andrei Kublan.  He offers free consultation, a rarity in northern Virginia, and from the onset he set the tone and laid outa foundation and plan to get and recover what is fair and rightfully mine. He was my rock, my voice of reason and my only friend at times when I was overwhelmed by the horrible situation I was in.  He was better than my therapist, an all-around counselor- not just in terms of legalities or his extraordinary ability to connect with you in legal dynamics but also the subtext, the emotional aspect - the roller coaster ride of fear and anxiety.  When I thought that I lost my daughter and all hope was lost,  he was ruthlessly aggressive, when he needed to, in getting immediate meaningful visitation with my daughter; and a master negotiator when it mattered with equitable distribution of properties and finance. Andrei had a calming face and voice that I sometimes needed to see and hear to remain hopeful. He was smart, relatable, efficient, tough, protective, compassionate and fair.  He coached me on how to respond to the vile email and text messages of my ex wife without falling prey into her instigations.  He always addressed every question and concerns I had no matter how grave or trivial they were.  And it was just not him, I had worked with his associate attorney Minji Kim and paralegal Alexandra.  They were amazing, caring and honest individuals who made sure that I stay the course and don’t lose sight of the bigger picture.  Their combined expertise of writing and analyzing facts, attention to details and their deft ability in finding the smoking gun brought me back from the dead.  The office staff was top-notch; they were very courteous and I never had any issue with inaccuracy, missing documents or not getting proper copies.  Andrei had matched pound for pound with my ex wife’s high-priced big law firm who dragged on the separation for seven months.  My ex wife and her attorney thought they had a slam dunk case until they ran into Andrei for emphatic block; he never wavered, did not cave in; made sure my equal custody of my daughter was non-negotiable; and at the end we prevailed. During the crunch time, he tirelessly worked into the wee hours of the night through countless revisions of the separation agreement to protect my best interests.  I thank God that he made me find Andrei during the most difficult, challenging and vulnerable time of my life.

Brilliant Lawyer for Divorce and Criminal Matters
Mr. Kublan has earned my absolute highest rating for the OUTSTANDING job he did on my divorce and criminal trials. I found Mr. K here on Avvo and I can’t tell you how happy I am as a result. After telling my immigrant wife of 14 months I wanted a divorce, she had me arrested for an unwanted touch (which is assault and battery in the State of Virginia). I was innocent but my first lawyers were so inept that I was not found guilty, but there was sufficient evidence for a finding of guilt. I was flabbergasted that the female Fairfax County JDR Judge refused to consider my wife’s motives! Initially I accepted the first offender’s deal but after a few months, I couldn’t take the mental anguish of being a convict and fired my lawyers and hired Mr. K to appeal my case. While waiting for the appeal trial, Mr. K conducted a deposition of my wife where he asked extremely insightful questions. Mr. K was able to gain enough information to prove her lies and destroy her credibility. As a prime example of this, in my first trial, my wife testified that I raped her on the night I allegedly assaulted and battered her. My lawyers at the time did not ask her one single question about this accusation! During my appeal trial, Mr. K presented call detail records which showed that my wife was talking on an 81 minute call to a friend when I was allegedly raping her. He asked so many questions about the timing of the rape that my wife finally changed her story and admitted in court, in front of the jury, that there was no sexual contact that evening! This was nothing less than OUTSTANDING performance on the part of Mr. K!!! It took the jury 15 minutes to unanimously find me NOT GUILTY in December 2016. I had to find my wife so I could serve her with divorce papers, band Mr. K recommended the Professional Legal Resource Group in Fairfax. Within a week, they had found my wife, and also obtained evidence of Adultery! Mr. K then filed a Complaint on the grounds of Adultery and tried to use that as leverage for her to agree to an immediate no fault divorce. Again she declined. Mr. K then filed a massive Discovery request and focused on the items my wife was deficient on. My wife ended up going through 4 lawyers in attempting to respond to Mr. K’s Discovery and subsequent motions. Mr. K was awarded Court Orders for my wife to pay me $1,500 in lawyer fees with more payments possible. Mr. K also filed a Complaint for an Annulment which survived a Demurer. Again, in October I offered to drop both Complaints and file for a no-fault divorce. But once again my wife declined. (Clearly my wife isn’t very smart). At the divorce hearing in July 2017, Mr. K used his extensive experience and knowledge to get the PLRG reports admitted as evidence (there were 4 reports covering 1 year of surveillance). The opposing council did her best to get the reports rejected but Mr. K prevailed. In addition, Mr. K’s questions were so good, and the resulting PLRG response was so good, that we knew we would win Adultery. The opposing counsel thought so too, and consequently, Mr. K proposed a deal where I dropped the Annulment and my wife accepted the Adultery grounds! In addition, I have no spousal support payments, no payments in arrears (I stopped payments 6 months before the trial when I lost my job), no health insurance, retirement, or social security benefits sharing, and in fact, no past or future financial obligations of any kind!!! What an incredible lawyer Mr. Kublan is! I cannot describe how elated I am with Mr. K’s brilliant performance both inside and outside the courtroom. It was his expert knowledge of the right questions to ask, when to ask them, and how to use the legal processes and procedures available to him in order to achieve the desired results. I would also like to say that Mr. Kublan’s staff is simply wonderful! Alexandra was courteous, smart, efficient and professional and Cristina handled the finances and invoicing efficiently and politely.

Excellent service and results!
I hired Andrei for divorce and child custody case and was pleased with how he handled the case. He and his staff is very approachable and professional, and communication was great during the whole process. I originally had a 30-minute free consultation with him where I learnt a lot about the process and he set reasonable expectations ( I had consultations with 3 other lawyers before meeting with him and they didn't deliver 10% of what he did yet they billed me). During the process, he set reasonable expectations and explained what the possibilities are, including how different judges look at he cases and what most probable outcome can be), as well as what the procedures are so I could be aware of what was happening (which I fund very helpful). During the hole process there was no unpleasant surprises and I am please with how the case was handled. I highly recommend Andrei and his team,

works for the results
Having been represented before by several attorneys in the area, I've experienced the best service and results with Kublan&Austin. Great professionalism, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Always kept me informed. I never had problems with delays in communication. Always received assistance and responds to my questions immediately, or at most the same day. Mr. Kublan has represented me for 4 years in getting my permanent residence and in a car accident case. Both cases had satisfactory successful results. Very knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney! Highly recommend! Should I need a legal representation in the future, will definitely chose him again!

Highly recommended
I am very grateful to have found Andrei Kublan when I did: at the point of re-litigating child custody. Mr. Kublan works for the result. He knows how to build a case, how to collect the evidence, how to argue, and how to present it. And he also knows how to protect his client from overly-aggressive opposing bullies. I worked with him for one year and can confidently state that he is a lawyer who listens and truly cares about his client - which is more than I can say about all the other attorneys before him. He is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. I highly recommend him.

Very able and professional lawyer
About 6 months ago I needed legal representation regarding an immigration matter. I did some research, met a few lawyers in the area, and chose Andrei Kublan. I believe when it comes to legal representation, one must go with a lawyer that one feels comfortable with on a personal level. You can find plenty of good and experienced lawyers, but Andrei, on top of being an excellent attorney, is first and foremost a great person. Frankly, that is the quality that set him apart from others I had met. In my experience meeting many lawyers in the area, I almost always ended up feeling rushed in my conversations with them, I would invariably walk out of a meeting feeling dissatisfied and confused with many of my questions unanswered. What many lawyers (like doctors) do not understand sometimes is that what is a routine everyday matter for them is a big deal for the person sitting across the table. With Andrei I did not feel that way, he realized that I was considerably apprehensive, even scared, because of my situation. He patiently answered my questions, explained to me the minor details, and kept me in the loop through out the process. He understood my need to be aware of each and every step in the process, gave sincere advice, and did not snub me or cut me out when I asked unrelated (even silly) questions some times. I am sure he has a busy schedule, but whenever I entered his office he already had my file on his table, and I always found him to be very well prepared for our meetings. His staff is equally approachable and professional. Ms. Harrison is an intelligent, courteous, and hard working lady. Throughout my case, I never had to wait more than a few minutes to hear back on my emails/phone calls. They are quick to respond and you do not have to repeatedly follow-up, as you are constantly kept informed at every step. I would sometimes ask for last minute meeting requests, and both her and Andrei were more than willing to accommodate me despite their busy schedule. Their rates are very reasonable when compared with others. Their first priority is to provide you quality representation and not your money. Their office is extremely organized, you can rest assured that your personal information is in safe hands. Each client is different, and in my opinion it is the ability of an attorney to come down to their level and make them feel at ease is what sets a great attorney apart from the good ones. I have no hesitation in saying that Andrei is a great attorney. It was a big decision for me to choose one, and I am glad I chose Andrei. I will definitely choose him again should I need legal representation in the future, and would recommend anyone reading this review to do so without reservations.

Repeat, satisfied client
I previously used Mr. Kublan for a divorce, so when I had a family member in need of an expungement, I recommended Mr. Kublan. He did an excellent job and the expungement was granted.

Highly Recommend Attorney Andrei Kublan
In 2013, I retained Mr. Andrei Kublan for several different cases related to my very complicated, multi-jurisdictional divorce. I found that working with him and hiring him to represent me was one of the smartest decisions I have made. We worked together as a team where we worked very closely together through each step of my legal battle and in each step of the way, throughout the course of the 7 months we worked together, he provided such incredibly substantial support lending to the successful conclusion of my case, all of which was support that was both wise and informative. He provided advise on strategy and approach for my legal matter that not only helped support the desired outcome I was aiming for, but provided such outstanding focus to my case that the outcome exceeded my expectations. The Virginia legal system is extremely complex and with little to no exposure or understanding of the Virginia judicial system, my rights or my options, Mr. Kublan expressed excitement to immediately (as the occasion would arise) educate me on the laws, impacts and ramifications related to my legal matter and took the time to do so without making me feel rushed or hurried which was very important to me. I am of the personality that likes to stay informed, asks several questions and take a proactive stance on my matters, however, I felt completely at ease knowing that Mr. Kublan was handling my case and felt very reassured that he was always consistently and always available to answer any and all of my questions. I cannot say enough about how courteous Mr. Kublan was with me and how he was with the way he spoke to me, ensuring that every single one my questions were answered thoroughly, in addition to going the extra mile to get back to me in a timely manner no matter what his schedule looked like and no matter what other schedule conflicts he had, he never allowed me to wait more than mere hours for a response as he even sometimes responded to me after hours and on weekends. This sent a strong message to me that my case was important to their office and they are going to do whatever it takes to support me. In terms of compensation for Mr. Kublan's services, his prices are extremely reasonable and more than fair. He quoted me exceptional rates and he really worked hard to make sure it was affordable to me, which was extremely important to me. His staff is professional, helpful and very kind in their follow up and administrative assistance. I felt extremely comfortable working with them and also felt as though working with them was an extension of Mr. Kublan himself since they were so diligent in their follow up and took the onus upon themselves to personally remain on top of the latest status of my case. If I addressed any questions with Mr. Kublan's staff, they worked hard to get back to me as quickly as possible. I honestly could not expect a greater level of customer service anywhere. The theme was reliably consistent, both Mr. Kublan and his staff were very quick to inform me of the latest updates in my case before I would even inquire. They were dependable and honest about any status that would unfold is was one of the most important factors for me and I never had to state the importance of this variable. Overall, I found his legal counsel to be absolutely invaluable during such a very difficult period in my life, the most difficult period. I felt relaxed to have my legal matter in his care as strong trust was seamlessly established from the very beginning. It's reassuring not to have to worry, as Mr. Kublan is extremely knowledgeable about the law and thoroughly versed with a wealth of experience in a variety of legal issues. His demeanor is always extremely pleasant and professional and I found that he always goes the extra mile and exceeds any expectations.

Great Lawyer
I was really satisfied with the work of Andrei Kublan. He perfectly helped my case and I became permanent resident in very short period of time. He filed all the documents for my case that i could not even imagine that those documents are essential for application. Moreover, he and his legal assistant Tagan were always in touch with me and updated me about the process of my case via email and phone. I proud of him and would kindly recommend to anyone.

Excellent Attorney for Reckless Driving - Andrei Kublan
Mr. Kublan represented my son in a reckless driving case in Fairfax, VA. He was extremely successful in getting the charges reduced to a speeding ticket. Wow, we were impressed in the way he handled the case. We found him to be quite personable, as he took the time to explain the charges and walked us through the process step by step. I would highly recommend Mr. Kublan as an attorney and would use him again if the need arises.
