I must start off by saying that Attorney David Dischley lived up to everything that another Attorney told me about him the night that I was looking for representation for my son. My son is a federal agent that was charged and arrested with a misdemeanor, providing alcohol to minor under the age of 21. From that night on, David was the most engaged and understanding attorney that I have worked with in many years. It must have been his Marine experience. Once he heard the facts of the case, David immediately reassured us that he would do all he could to get this matter dismissed and expunged from my son's record. David is a man of his word, because that is exactly what he was able to do to successfully resolve this case. I can’t begin to tell you how much our family appreciates David and the level of expertise that he exhibited and the guidance and information that he provided to us in this trying situation. David is truly one of the best attorney’s in Virginia! My family is truly blessed to have met and hired him for this ordeal. He deserves an Exceptional rating and we will recommend David Dischley to anyone that needs a defense lawyer in Virginia.

I hired David to represent me in my reckless driving case. I was doing a 67 in a 25. I had never faced any kind of criminal charges in my life. I was just looking to stay out of jail. David wanted more for me than I wanted for myself. The prosecutor wanted jail time but David got it dropped to a speeding ticket. He was very personable. He got back to me immediately with everything i needed to be prepared for court and with any questions I had (I had a lot). So grateful david was referred to me during this time!

A little background of me- I was enlisted in the Marines then got out of active duty. After getting out, I was unfortunately pulled over and processed for a DUI case. I was fortunate to have a friend recommend me to Mr. Dischley. Once I called Mr. Dischley, it was honestly the best feeling ever. We discussed my case and from there he did not stop until the court dropped my case. Being prior service, just like Mr. Dischley, he WILL go through thick and thin for you. He is truly the best lawyer and more importantly ally you can have on your side. I am truly thankful for Mr. Dischley representing and dropping my case. Please do yourself a favor and look no further. Mr. Dischley is not out there for your money. He is passionate about what he does and it does not go without notice when he is fighting for you throughout your case. I sincerely appreciate it Mr. Dischley, thank you.

David was able to reduce my reckless driving ticket to a speeding ticket and represented my case very professionally, as his credentials will clearly speak for themselves. Beyond this, David truly cares about his clients and will go above and beyond your average lawyer while representing your case.

David's preparation and attention to detail made the difference here. Read on: I was arrested for DUI in Arlington with an elevated BAC of 0.16. Very stupid decision on my part to even drive, and honestly, the officers had me dead-to-rights. They weren't looking to bust anybody; they were just checking my parked car to see if everything was okay. It was going to jeopardize everything I wanted to do for the next few years career-wise. Upon my first consultation with David, he demonstrated his extensive knowledge of not only the law, but also his knowledge of the nature of Arlington County in particular and all of the people involved, including the judges and prosecutors. This gave me faith that, even though I was pretty much screwed, I at least had a competent attorney representing me. Nice guy too. Case got continued once, and then on my final court date, David discovered that the police had not filed the breathylizer report in time (and thus could not be admitted as evidence on that day--would be admitted down the road if the case got continued), and found out that the officer had not been resposive to the district attorney. He knows the DA very well, and used this information as leverage in negotiating a plea deal for my case. He got the DA to agree to reduce the charge to Reckless Driving, which does come with a license suspension and a few days in jail, but it's not a DUI. And if you know anything about Virginia, and particularly Arlington, you know that getting a DUI reduced to Reckless Driving rarely happens, and if you have an elevated BAC, it never ever, never ever ever happens. This happened 2 days ago, and I'm still getting used to the idea that my license is only suspended for 6 months, and that I won't have to have an interlock installed in my car, and that I'm not going to have to explain on every job application that I got convicted of a DUI. David Dischley is a Beast, and a really great guy in general. I have no doubt that his preparation, attention to detail, and work ethic carries over into the other areas of law he covers as well. Hire him. You won't regret it.

Mr. Dischley was great. I work for the Govt and I had to reckless driving tickets that could hurt my job. I have had two cases, one in Fairfax and one in Falquer both within 2 months of each other. Mr. Dishley knew where I was coming from, and he worked hard to reach out to the parties involved and the lawyers before my case was heard at court. Both cases were settled for $150, which was better than a suspension, etc. I highly recommend him, especially when are in some serious trouble and you are tight on budget.

I can’t put into words the talent this man brings to the table. Words on a screen will not do him justice. When I say he is the most competent Lawyer you will ever meet, I mean it. I was charged with a DUI ten months ago and David has been with me the whole time. When I was initially charged, I was scared for my career and future endeavors, as a DUI charge will have a lasting negative impact on employment. I talked to many Lawyers in the area. One was unsure of my situation and gave me absolutely no confidence in my case when speaking to me. Another was very impatient with my questions and basically said my case could go either way in terms of a conviction. The first time I talked to David he calmed me down right away; his confidence over the phone gave me the reassurance that we actually had shot at fighting my DUI.
I blew a .08 BAC and performed relatively well on the field sobriety test. We ended up going to court four different times over a period of ten months. To say he fought and stuck with me is an understatement, he was there until the end. Every time we went to court David would press harder to get me what I wanted. There were many times I was doubtful during this long and grueling process, but I knew David had what it took to get me to the end. With all the stories and reviews I read online, something told me this guy has what it takes, and he does. He ended up getting my DUI dropped to reckless driving with very little legal consequences. What’s funny is that this was the original goal that David and I set out for. This is not common as many people know the state of Virginia takes drunk driving extremely serious.
David is a United States Marine. You can see this play out in the courtroom as he fearlessly fights on your behalf. The passion he brings to the table, combined with his dedication, and knowledge of the law is a rarity to say the least. He is very professional in what he does, something that is expected, but when combined with all his other traits, it makes him and his work even more astounding.
David knows the Law better than anyone I’ve ever met, and I have met many Lawyers, David sets the bar at a level few will ever achieve in his line of work. The knowledge of the law that he brings to the table is a constant reminder that you are in good hands. Throughout this process I had all types of questions. And I would call him many times a week. David would always answer the calls and he was happy to hear from me. He will connect with you on a level that you would think only possible from a close friend, and that’s the thing, he does become your friend.
If you want a Lawyer that can get you the best results, you need to hire David Dischley. He is a true man of character that will fight injustice. He brings dedication, passion, knowledge of the law, and overall perseverance to the table as a Lawyer. He has all the required abilities to get you what you want. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a Lawyer and will continue to refer him. It is because of him that my future won’t be hindered from a DUI charge.

Mr. Dischley successfully had my traffic ticket reduced from doing 20 over in a special residential zone (6 points on my license and a significant fine) to a civil infraction that carried a lesser fine and 0 points. He was absolutely professional and very helpful in answering all my questions in a way I could understand. He walked me through what I needed to do step by step. He was very responsive at all times of the day. I enjoyed that we conducted our business via email and did not require me to take time off of work to for a face-to-face discussion. Additionally I was not required to appear in court, as Mr. Dischley appeared as my representative. I will recommend him to all my friends and would not hesitate to use him again (let's hope I don't need to!)

David provided excellent and quality service. I always felt that my needs were met and that my case was handle with a lot of professionalism. He was easily accessible, got back to me quickly, aggressive and got me the results that I wanted. David and his staff all showed the personal level services I expected.

Mr.Dischley is by far the best Lawyer I've had the privilege of working with. Not only is he a great Lawyer, he is a great person who genuinely cares for his client's well being. I was charged with reckless driving(93/55) and Mr.Dischley got my charges reduced to an improper infraction, no jail time, no suspended license, and a low fine. I am VERY pleased with the outcome and I highly recommend Mr. Dischley to handle all of your legal issues, you will not be disappointed!
