Best Defense Laywer!!!
Kiana was great! I work for the government and have a high level security clearance. Unfortunately, I was charged with a DUI in Fairfax on my way home from a work-related event and after being arrested, I thought my life and career were over. I visited with many lawyers and ultimately chose Kiana to represent me. It was the best decision of my life. She reassured me by explaining our defenses to me and telling me how she would attach the prosecution's case. I didn't even have to testify and got the charges dismissed! My family and I owe a lot to Kiana. She was always accessible and even gave me her cell phone number in case I had questions after-hours. While I hope to never need a criminal defense attorney again, I know who to go to if any of my family or friends need help. Kiana is my attorney for life. For those of you who are on the fence about different attorneys (like I was), trust that Kiana is the right attorney for your case. Thank you Kiana for everything!!!

Great Representation
Ms. Noorishad represented me in a traffic and FTA case. One of them was dropped and the other outcome was great as well. I would highly recommend her. Thanks Kiana Noorishad again for all of your help.

Best decision I could've made!!
She did exactly what she said. And was with me throughout the entire process. She was also extremely knowledgeable! And always prepared and on time for my court dates. I also felt like rather than getting a plea she fought for my innocence. And worked very hard for me. After a year and a half of the charges against me were dropped. And I cannot thank her enough!! She's the best.

Kianna Noorishad is the best defense attorney that I have ever dealt with. She makes you feel safe in the worst of situations. She makes herself aware of every facet of your case and she will go back again and again to fight for you. She knows the law inside and out and is revered by both the prosecutors and the judges. I highly recommend Kianna to everyone in need of a defense attorney.

Louis "she's the best lawyer"
Was falsely charged and arrested she not only helped me get a bail bondsman but helped me after I was released from jail. Before I gave her a dime. She was calling me and asking questions and giving me updates on my case. Took the case to trial rapidly. I felt so comfortable in an uncomfortable situation because of her professionalism and knowledge. Thank you so much..

Great and caring attorney
Kiana Noorishad is a great, hard-working and caring attorney. I was being charged with some serious felony charges in Prince William county. After listening to my situation, she calmed my fears and worries of being locked up six months and having a felony charge on my record. The surprising outcome of my case was that I didn’t have to serve one single day in jail and my charges were dropped before entering the court room. So, I was so released and relaxed, when I walked in the court room. If you are in a need of a great attorney, Kiana Noorishad is the right one for your case. She’s always responds promptly and goes out of her way to help. Thank you Kiana for helping me…

Excellent client service, someone who actually cares!
Contact Kiana after I got arrested with a Felony Grand Larceny Charge. She has been absolutely amazing. She has calmed my fears, given me a plan of action, and encouraged me to do as much as possible before my case to help my situation. Always responds promptly and goes out of her way to help. I can’t say enough good things.

Super Lawyer 100%
Mrs. Noorishad was spot on with my case in Fairfax County. She got my case dismissed at my preliminary hearing. Her knowledge of the law was far superior to ALL of the other attorneys in the courtroom. She was confident, quick witted, sharp, respectful to the judge & DA, classy and beautiful. I’ve maintained a TSSI Top Secret with the U.S Govt. for the last 22 years. I made a big mistake, got arrested, and my career and most importantly relationship w my wife was on the line! Mrs. Noorishad stepped in and saved my life when it needed saving!

Traffic violation
Attorney Kiana was referred to me by a friend. She was so professional from the start. She listened to my situation and she made sure she could do whatever it took to help me out. I got a ticket that would have been a 4 point violation but Kiana got the violation reduced down to a no point violation. Having a not so good driving record, I knew this would be difficult, but somehow, she made it happen. She's super friendly and supportive and I will definitely be working with her in the future and I would recommend her to all my friends and family that need an attorney for traffic violations.

SUPER LAWYER a rising star, better than lawyers I have used that have been practising for decades.
Ms. Noorishad is what I want and look for when my life is on the line; a trial lawyer through and through. She inspired confidence and good council from the very begining. I called her as I was informed there may have been a warrent for my arrest. She promptly checked it out and confirmed it true. She counciled me to cooperate and turn myself in. She assured me all would be well as long as I followed the directions to a T... I was to check into the magistrates office imediatley and tell them I was there to turn myself in on a warrent. The police would then take me into custody for questioning at wich point I was to inform them that I am there to cooperate fully and my council instructed me not to answer any questions. I did all of this and the cops were mad, searched me aggresivly, lectured me, tried goading me into conversation and more. My only response was the the only one she approved I am here to cooperate and my lawyer told me not to answer any questions. After a while they processed me and charged me with fleeing and alluding, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, driving on revoked DUI 2nd, general reckless, and possesion of a schedule 2 substance class 5 felony. My wife was in the car with my kids at the time of the incident... long story short she received a summons to testify for court and Ms. Noorishad advised me that my wife needed council as well. We took her up on her recommendation and come judgement day everything was null processed and the felony was dropped to a misdemeanor paraphernalia 90 days 90 suspended. This was great as it protected my wife from any charges in correlation with the incident. I have unfortunately used a lot of lawyers in my life and Kiana Noorishad is the best. Whatever outcome she gets for you, you can rest assured it is the best one possible when there is a case to be fought she will take it all the way.

Couldn't have asked for a better attorney!!
I had a case that the county prosecutors thought for sure were going to "fry me" so to speak. I contacted Ms. Noorishad the DAY before my preliminary hearing. and everything was dropped against me with just her speaking to the prosecutor for 30 minutes. I would DEDINITELY recommend this law firm!! Great job, I am super satisfied, and my outcome could not have possibly gone better. If you're in need of an attorney, believe me, contact this firm!! THANK YOU AGAIN!!

Great Defense Attorney!
I got a drug charge early this year. I contacted Ms. Noorishad after a friend told me about her. She was able to get the charge dropped after a lot of hard work. I'm so thankful for all the time and effort she put into my case. She was always available to speak to me and provided me with updates. Her hard work and professionalism is unmatched. I would recommend her to anybody looking for a great attorney!

Excellent Representation
Ms. Noorishad represented me in traffic court and proved an excellent, capable attorney. She successfully negotiated a complete dismissal of the case against me, without my having to pay a fine or even see points added to my driving record. Her counsel was clear and well supported by her cogent analysis not only of the law but also of the Court and its various personalities. Most importantly, I found her advice honest and pragmatic, informed by prudence and thoughtful judgment rather than a desire to tell me what she might have thought I wanted to hear. The fact that she engineered a complete dismissal points to her interpersonal skills in communication and negotiation; she was unfailingly prompt and reliable in returning my calls and delivering materials to the Court. She was a model professional throughout the process, from our first session to the final dismissal. I found her representation comprehensively excellent, and would recommend her to friends and colleagues without reservation.
