About Gregory

Learn Gregory’s areas of practice.

FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR AND RETIRED ARMY JAG WITH OVER 40 YEARS OF CRIMINAL TRIAL EXPERIENCE.

I am a former Senior Trial Attorney  (GS 15) at the Narcotics Section, Criminal Division, US Department of Justice, and retired Army JAG officer (Lieutenant Colonel).  In addition to graduating from Law School at the University of Virginia with a Juris Doctor degree, I have an LL.M. in criminal law from George Washington University.  I have over 47 years of experience litigating criminal cases as both a prosecutor and a defense counsel.  I once won three consecutive murder cases in the Alexandria federal court. I have been in private practice defending individuals since 1986. I lived in Japan and Hawaii for 3 years each, and have visited over 40 foreign countries, so I can easily relate to a wide variety of people.

| Consulted Attorney
Highly recommend Mr. English
Gregory English has handled several legal matters for members of my family, and we have always been highly satisfied with the results he has obtained. He is reliable and always gives his clients his full effort. Atty. English has given sound advice about whether to accept a plea deal and will mount a vigorous and effective defense in court if needed. I recommend him without reservation.

Awesome number 1 lawyer.
My name is Wazhma. I have never referred anyone to Mr. English. I hired Mr. English because someone fabricated lies on me. Mr. English showed up one hour prior to the actual court time. He was very professional and he proved throughout the court time that everything was fabricated by the other party. Mr. English won the cases. The person who showed lots of hate probably is the case that individual lost and Mr. English won the cases. I encourage everyone to consult with Mr. English so you could find out for yourself that everything the hater said is fabrication. Mr. English is an awesome, loyal, amazing and most importantly trust worthy and go getter lawyer.

Lt, col. Delist should be promoted
Mr. English always fights for his clients rights. This soft spoken southern gentleman ,can and will fight with a ferocity of a man eating predator, if there is just cause to do so. I highly respect thi man Even though I am a client, he will always be welcome in my family.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have worked closely with Greg English representing co-defendants in complex cases before the U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia, Most attorneys do what is required of them. In order to prevail against the federal government, however, you need a lawyer who is creative, energetic - and unafraid. Greg, a former high level federal prosecutor, is one of the very few that meets these criteria. Comprehensive, yet incisive in his analysis. Crisp in his writing and speech. And, most importantly, strong in the defense of his clients. I look forward to the privilege and pleasure of working with Greg again. John C. Kiyonaga"

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Greg and I served as co-counsel in two Murder jury trials in Federal Court in Alexandria. Our clients were found not guilty in both cases. Greg was terrific. He is a big guy who can take over a courtroom and that's exactly what he did. His cross-examination of witnesses was very effective. Outside the courtroom, he's soft-spoken and friendly. Inside the courtroom, he is aggressive. If you are considering hiring counsel in a serious federal court criminal case, I recommend you sit down and discuss your case with Greg first."
