Joe is a terrific lawyer in his specialty. He knows the VA laws inside and out and will devise a customized plan of attack for your defense. Joe tells it to you straight—he is forthright about your chances for possible plea deals that the prosecution would accept. In my specific instance, I blew 0.13 in the field and 0.11 at the station, but my field sobriety tests were fine and the arresting officer had unknowingly obscured all of the video footage. Nevertheless, Joe was very direct about the uphill battle I was facing, and we pursued various lines of attack in the weeks before the court date, including plans if we needed to appeal. When the case was tried, Joe pushed hard on all the weaknesses of the arrest and ran laps around the more-junior prosecuting attorney. Fearful of losing the case outright, the prosecutor agreed to a wet reckless with various provisions but no interlock, which was something that was crucial for me to avoid. At my first ASAP meeting, the case manager seemed floored that I was able to get a reckless with a 0.11. For the expertise Joe provided during my nine month journey, I found his fees very reasonable. If you are up against a DWI in the Richmond area and you want to maximize your chances of the best possible outcome, you need to look no further than Joe McGrath.
