My friends and I got busted for drugs and my family hired Furlong (I had been busted before but wanted different lawyer cuz others didn't do much). Furlong found new evidence and argued in court about what police could do and ripped the labratory guy. Cop got all mad on the witness stand. I got off but friends found guilty. They wished they hired Furlong now! Basically he like tried really hard and saved me from a major prison thing and no felony!

I was arrested for a DUI leaving Fair Oaks Mall but I was not drunk. I had a few drinks with friends but knew I was not a drunk driver. I talked to another lawyer who said I should plead guilty and did not seem to want to fight it. But Mr. Furlong believed me and showed me all the stuff the police need to do for drunk tests and what he used when he was a policeman. We went to trial and he won the case! I'm like so happy!! I defintiely recommend him, especially if you hear there's nothing you can do.

We are from out of state and hired Mr. Furlong after an exhaustive Internet search of the top criminal defense lawyers in Virginia. My daughter had a Reckless Driving charge (misdemeanor with jail time in Virginia) and Mr. Furlong analyzed the police radar equipment and found out something wrong with the tuning forks which got the judge to throw out the high speed. He got the charge reduced to just defective equipment which carries no points. He's a former police officer and knew how the radar gun needed to work. Regular guy to talk to who gives it to you straight with no B.S. I interviewed other lawyers but they either said they would just "try hard" or that there plan was to show up and just "argue". Mr. Furlong had a strategy, gave us homework to prepare for court and answered our questions, even on the weekends. I would definitely hire this attorney again if I had a Virginia criminal case. Other lawyers quoted lower fees but he answered all my questions over the phone without the hassle of an office visit (hard since I'm out of state).I liked that he knew the prosecutors and judges and gave us a realistic view of what to expect in court. He also arrived early, unlike other attorneys who were late and whose clients ran around looking for them. If you get in trouble in Virginia I strongly suggest you hire this lawyer. He saved my daughter's career.
