Excellent attorney
Vanessa represented me in a dui case in VA. She was able to get the DUI case dismissed. She was very understanding and knowledgably. I highly recommend Vanessa. Her services are worth every penny.

Excellent attorney who cares about her clients
Mrs. Jordan represented my boyfriend on a traffic violation in Prince William County and Fairfax County. She was very responsive to his calls and texts. She explained his options to him and advised him of what was the best option to take. She even took the time to help him fill out court documents before she had officially entered her appearance. I will forever sing praises to Mrs. Jordan! She is very knowledgeable!

Attorney Jordan was very proficient, compassionate and demonstrated extreme knowledge in my consulted legal matter. While I was not able to proceed with Attorney Jordan due to conflict in scheduling, I highly recommend her for legal matters.

Dilligent , Professional and Honest
I did have a consultation with Ms Jordan to discuss my need of an Attorney in pursuing a Final Divorce Decree. Mrs Jordan was very straight forward in conveying to me what steps were needed , approximate time to completion ( sandwiched around the Holiday seasons) and a honest cost assesment for the amount of work requiring her services. Ms Jordan did a fantastic job with her timely coordination of incoming paperwork as she received it, to be filed. I would recommend Ms Jordan to clients looking for a smart , honest and proficient Attorney to represent them. For my future needs in the Legal realm, I will use Ms Jordan.

Amazing and compassionate
Ms. Jordan took on my case with determination and compassion. Her advice and opinion was invaluable. She helped me navigate the system for my divorce and helped me stay calm when my abusive ex would try to intimate me. I would recommend her to anyone!

"I endorse this lawyer. Vanessa is one of my favorite colleagues. She is not only an excellent attorney, experienced, and highly skilled, she is also personable and kind. I refer criminal defense and family law matters to her without hesitation and have received excellent feedback about the results she has obtained."

"I highly recommend Ms. Jordan. Vanessa is a tireless fighter for her clients. I have had the opportunity to see her in court on numerous occasions and it is always a pleasure to see her in her element. Whether it is taking a case a trial and forcing the government to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, or leveraging bad facts into a favorable plea for her client, Ms. Jordan obtains fantastic results for her clients. She is a phenomenal trial attorney, and one who I enjoy observing and picking up practice pointers from when she's in court. Above and beyond everything I have just mentioned, the most impressive thing about Vanessa is her modesty, and kindness. She's a genuinely good person, and incredibly approachable. I highly recommend her, and think very highly of her legal ability."
