Client
I had a traffic violation and I was really nervous about the potential issues that could come from this violation. Attorney Jenkins was explained everything to me in detail and was able to get my case dismissed. He is an exceptional attorney who fights for the common man!

A bonus!
Trusted friends recommended Mr. Jenkins to me for help with criminal charges. The case was petty and my expectations for disposal were completely out of alignment with the DA. Mr. Jenkins supported my expectations and aggressively defended me through the criminal cycle, even through trial. Acquittal was the outcome. The case was very frustrating considering the significant time investments for the underlying facts and charges, so lots of pressure to plea it out. I am forever greatful Mr. Jenkins was supportive of my decision to take the path of most resistance, and forever greatful in his talents for persuading a jury. Often times you look back on experiences with lawyers and can’t rationalize value or return for the money you pay. But after reflecting on the work of Mr. Jenkins with my case vs. invoices he presented for payment, I felt he deserved exta. Never in my life has a lawyer’s service been so exceptional that I paid more than the bill - until I experienced Mr. Jenkins.

Genuine Representation
I don’t usually write reviews,however Mr. Jenkins is truly a different breed of Lawyer, who deserves the time and energy. He is always honesty & transparent EVERY step of the way! Most attorneys take advantage of people, baiting potential clients in with false hopes and an assumely “good character” as if they truly care. However, Jenkins has not failed me yet. From my experiences, he truly has his clients best interest at heart, is knowledgeable, resourceful, and trustworthy!

From day one he has and always reassured me that I was not facing jail time all the way ill my sentencing and believe me i was facing years. Overall he has gotten me a second chance to redeem myself of my past sins and help me look forward to my future. Thank you again Mr Jenkins.

Helpful beyond belief
When I needed an attorney, I didn’t know where to start. After considering my choices, I felt my best chance was to work with Robert Jenkins. During my consultation he let me know the process that was ahead of me. He told me the options I had and I felt comfortable fully knowing what was to come. He was able to get the best possible outcome during my case. (Thank you!) He is positively recognized around the courthouse. He knows what he is doing and is very organized and inteligente. Thank you again.

Exceeding expectations
Initially I had hired another attorney but I reached out to Rob to discuss my case because I didnt feel good about what I was hearing. Rob knew the other attorney and spoke highly of him as well. Rob also told me how his experience litigating would be beneficial in my case. I spoke with the other attorney and he agreed with Rob and so I switched. Rob's experience as a litigator was a big concern for the prosecution and led to a result that was much better than I expected.

Exceptional lawyer
There is no better criminal attorney out there then Mr. Jenkins. He was able to get my 3rd and 4th offenses for driving on a suspended license reduced to a simple 250$ fine with no additional suspensions to my license, which is nothing short of a miracle in Fairfax county. Mr Jenkins has also represented me on numerous other occasions and has exceeded all my expectations at every juncture. I wouldn’t allow any friend or family member to employ any other criminal lawyer besides Mr Jenkins, he truly is a life savor anyone looking for an attorney should have him at the top of their list!

A True Pleasure
My wife and I hired Robert in the aid of a friend who needed immediate legal representation related to a felony sentencing hearing. (This sentencing matter had gone on for quite some time under a different attorney). Robert was able to calm our collective nerves, and devise a strategy for the sentencing hearing that benefited his client immensely. On the sentencing date, Robert had complete command in the courtroom, the trust of his client, and the professional respect of the judge. Over the 2-3 month period we retained Robert, he was highly communicative with us and very conscientious of his client's needs. We would immediately recommend Robert to anyone who might have a difficult criminal legal matter to navigate.

Charged with a class 5 Felony
Atty Jenkins was phenomenal. I called him the day before I had court. I explained my situation. We negotiated the fee which was extremely fair. He showed up the next day at Court. I said nothing, continuance was set. On the next court date, the state trooper approached before court apologized. I went into court once again, I said nothing. All charges dismissed. Atty Jenkins is exact and precise. I recommend his services to all who appreciate professionalism at its finest.

PROFESSIONAL
All I can say is 'What a Professional"! This is the best criminal defense attorney in the "WORLD" and his results is a testament to this phrase! In the first meeting with Mr. Jenkins he was honest, upfront, professional, and I can tell he was determined to make sure that I get the justice that I deserved. My criminal case lasted for over six years and through all six plus of those years Mr. Jenkins was right there still fighting for me. Words cannot explain the level of professionalism and dedication Mr. Jenkins exuded. I am very proud to have been represented by Mr. Jenkins. If you need justice this is the person to call.

Criminal defense/ Felony case
After speaking to dozens of lawyer to take on a felony case, we Came down to our top three choices. My family was looking for a top-notch lawyer at an affordable price, and thankfully a family friend had hired him previously and recommended us to him. After interviewing several lawyers, he was the only one whom provided us with a brochure, came out of his way to meet with us, to meet with my brother whom was incarcerated at the time, never pressured us about his fees. IN fact, he always made great efforts to accomadate to our schedule, regularly visited my brother while incarcerated, explained the process to us as many times as we needed to hear, was incredibly patient and professional. I appreciated how transparent and realistic he was with us in respect to what to expect for his charge and even then he was always optimistic about the outcomes and with great reason! In the end, the case ended up getting dismissed and after two long months, case was closed!

EFFECTIVE AND TALENTED
Mr. Jenkins is an amazing attorney who delivers what other attorneys cannot. He is competent. Talented. And honest. You may see other attorneys who promise to work hard for you. I don’t know about you, but I’d prefer an attorney who works smart for me and delivers results. Robert is outcome-oriented and he proves it. I recommend him to anyone. Do your own research. His record speaks for itself. In my case, it was a swift and effortless dismissal. If you want an end to your nightmare - call this guy. He delivers.
