About Samantha

Learn Samantha’s areas of practice.

Samantha Bohannon focuses her practice in the areas of Criminal Law, DUI, Traffic Violations, and Family Law. Before opening her own firm, Mrs. Bohannon served as a Magistrate for Region Six, which includes Richmond, Henrico, New Kent, Williamsburg, York/Poquoson, James City, Gloucester, Mathews, Middlesex, King and Queen, King William, West Point and Charles City. Mrs. Bohannon's prestigious position has given her a unique understanding on probable cause and common errors law enforcement officers typically make.  Often times law enforcement has more than enough evidence to convict you, but that doesn't mean you're guilty.  Not only is it the Commonwealth's burden to prove you are guilty, but it is also their duty to follow the law.  Mrs. Bohannon's years of experience as a Magistrate makes her especially skilled in spotting suppression issues that could keep you out of jail.  Don't settle for the attorneys who tell you that they will "hold your hand through a guilty plea" or "work hard to get you a deal."  Instead, call Samantha Bohannon and have her find a way to keep you out of jail.  Just say you want Samantha!

Excellent advice
Only spoke to her for a short time. She told me everything I need to do to start my child custody case. Will hire her when time to go to court. I called 4 different lawyers and spoke with secretaries, Samantha returned my phone call personally. Honest lawyer.

Honestly helped me and my brother
She is very helpful, when you try to contact her she gets back to you right away. If we had a problem she was right there to help us fix it and explain everything to us since I am from out of state. I would highly recommend her if you ever get a reckless driving charge like I did she really help me get everything dropped with just taking a class and paying court cost, I could have been slapped with six points or my driver's license taken away from me my insurance raised but she honestly help me get through this process for the first time I have ever gotten a traffic ticket and needed to get a lawyer. So if you are ever looking for a good lawyer please give her a call

Highly recommended!!!
Mrs Bohannon, has by far, exceeded my expectations for council. She handled a child support case for my husband. She appeared in court on his behalf in one day and produced positive results. After seeing how she handled his case I hired her for my child support case and she was responsive, stayed in communication with me, and guided me through the process. If I ever need an attorney in the future I will definitely be using her again. She is highly recommended.

Custody
Ms. Bohannon was very responsive, sensitive to my needs, and was able to achieve a positive outcome. Furthermore, she saved me time by corresponding with me directly via phone, email, etc. I would definitely use her again should I have a need!

Professional, Prompt and Thorough
Ms. Bohannon handled our uncontested divorce. She gave us all the information we needed to complete our responsibilities, was always on time for appointments and kept us informed of any changes or concerns. The process was quick and cordial. Thank you Samantha! :)
