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!

Without a doubt I’d recommend David Dischley for anyone seeking a lawyer. He was especially helpful with my DUI case. There is a lot of anxiety associated with a DUI case: unsure of the law, why am I being charged with a DUI at a .07, fear of not having a license, and sitting in front of a judge; but David was able to give me some peace of mind and help me through the whole process.
He is a confidant lawyer who works through all scenarios with you and make sure that you are comfortable with your decision because at the end of the day its your decision; not his.
While offered a plea, I never accepted because I had confidence in my case and David’s knowledge of the court system that I would be fine. Ultimately, I left with a verdict of not guilty on the DUI charge; which was what I wanted.
I would highly recommend David to represent you.

We had a situation arise where our young adult was in need of a lawyer because of the actions of another. David was on top of our situation, guiding us through the process and did a superb job representing us. He was quick to respond, available to work through anything that arose in a very timely manner. We never felt that we were just another case, but the work and effort he put in was personalized and on point; we never felt that any question we had was trivial or a bother. I cannot say enough good things about David Dischley and his representation of us. I would highly recommend him!

I hired David Dischley to represent me in my DUI, reckless driving, & refusal to submit to a breathalyzer charges this year and I could not be happier with my decision. I called a few other lawyers and knew as soon as I spoke with him that he was my lawyer even though I never met him in person until my first court appearance.
Living across the country made things more difficult but David was available every time time I contacted him and always got back to me with answers in a timely manner, at times even caring enough to reassure me that all would be ok. This was, after all, my first time going through any sort of court proceedings. Through this difficult time of unknown and stress, he made sure I knew all of the ways my case could turn out so that I was prepared for all the possible outcomes.
What I am most impressed with is the fact that he really listened to me and took into consideration my desired outcome. Although we were presented with a deal at every court appearance, he did not push me to accept anything I wasn't happy with even if it mean coming back to court, which we did a total of 4 times.
In the end I never accepted a plea because I was so confident in his knowledge of the court system and opinions as a professional defense (and previously prosecuting) lawyer and I am so glad I did. I left with a verdict of not guilty on the DUI charge which is what I was hoping for.
So, to anyone reading this: give him a call! He offers free consultations and his fee is very reasonable. I know I will be referring him to anyone that asks me who my lawyer was.

David very excellent lawyer, handle my case peofessionally. Always communicate with me about each step of the process. I was very happy with his service. I got my ticket in March an by May it was resolved. On first contact he responded to me within a few hours. He's very expeditious in working to get your situation resolved. My reckless driving was reduced to failure to obey highway rules without me ever setting foot in a courtroom. His fee is comparable and fair.

David not only represented me and my case extremely effectively, but also took the time to get to know me better -- which I believe helped him TO represent me so well. I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal advice or representation with the greatest of enthusiasm and pleasure.

From the Moment I met with him for a consultation he went above and beyond to make sure i had all the information possible. I originally had a public defender but felt she wasn't treating my case like she would her paid clients. I hadn't even retained David yet and he was giving me as much information and legal advice as he possible could. He explained to me the things to look for in a good lawyer even if i didn't hire him. That proved to me off the bat that he had my best interest in mind. I was faced with with what seemed like an impossible situation of 3 charges of grand larceny. As a poor english speaker (I had my Kids translate this for me) and little knowledge of the legal system I hadn't known my rights when I was given my summons at the store. Being a Legal Resident I feared my Immigration status could be in jeopardy. Once knowing this, David made that his priority. That no matter the outcome, he got me off to where Id still be allowed to live in the same country as my husband and two kids. There wasn't once throughout the process when i felt he didn't have time to get back to me or answer any of my questions. He made sure to let me know all the possible outcomes. Im very happy with my experience with David and would definitely recommend him to anyone needing legal advice. The numerous positive reviews about him on this site don't lie!
