Not flashy and that's what I liked I could tell he actually did research. I felt comfortable confident and was informed every step of the way. My charges were 2nd DUI w/in 10 years and refusal of breath..I was due in Henrico court at 9:30 did not leave u til 3:30. Mr. McGrath was extremely knowledgeable and had a comeback for everything that was thrown at him. I was found not guilty of DUI and we are appealing the refusal. I am not worried one bit. I am confident in Mr. McGraths knowledge and professionalism. He's an excellent choice and extremely reasonable as far as price always available to answer any concerns I may have. When I left out of court deputies and other attorneys as well as random people expressed how impressed they were and expressed how hard they seen Mr. McGrath fight for me. I'm very happy with my choice and if I ever have a problem again he will be the one I call. Thanks so much Mr. McGrath!!!
Oh and the reason I was in court so long is not b/c of Mr. McGrath. The other attorney was being very tedious but Mr. McGrath handled it with professionalism and grace all the while making me feel very comfortable while in the court room. It's a pleasure to have someone like him on my side.

During late 2016, I discovered that I had been proclaimed by the State of Virginia as an “Habitual Offender” (during 1995) as a result of being convicted during the mid-1980s of two DUI’s (Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol).
Although I did everything that I was required to do almost 30 years ago regarding those convictions, including paying fines, attending DUI classes and having my drivers’ license suspended for three years from 1988-1991, I discovered during September 2016 that the State of Virginia had revoked my license during 1995 and declared me an “habitual offender”.
Upon learning of that matter, I contacted the Virginia Circuit Court and the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program (“VASAP”), paid some fees to those organizations, and visited a substance-abuse counselor as required by VASAP.
Even though I had not been convicted of any alcohol-related offense, or any other driving offense, except for a few speeding tickets, over the 29 years following my DUI convictions, and I had a valid drivers’ license in two other states during that period, VASAP advised the courts to not re-instate my license merely because I admitted willingly that I tend to have a couple of glasses of wine, at home, a few days of the week during dinner.
Not knowing what to do, I took the advice of a good friend of mine and contacted Joe McGrath.
Almost immediately, I knew that I had contacted the right person regarding my driving issue, as Joe illustrated quickly that he knows the law thoroughly, as well as all of the State’s prosecutors and judges, and the background of those legal persons.
In addition to working diligently to resolve my case in a positive way, Joe was easy to reach any time that I had a question or concern, and he kept me updated with important information.
Most importantly, Joe was successful in persuading the Circuit Court of Virginia to re-instate my Virginia driving privileges.
I would encourage anyone who is seeking good legal advice to hire Joe as their attorney.

Joe is top notch, absolutely the best lawyer I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with and representing me. He was always on top of getting my case in order and always timely with responses as to any questions or concerns I had. I wouldn't hesitate to have him represent me again if the issue ever arose. As far as my case went DUI, blew .15 in the field, .10 in jail, possession on marijuana. DUI got reduced to wreckless, drug charge reduced to pariphanalia, ASAP, restricted license. End result of my case speaks as to how awesome Joe is. Don't hesitate to hire him if you're in need of the best lawyer in Richmond!

Joe was recommended to me by another attorney who stated "if I was charged with a DUI, I'd hire him myself." After our initial consultation I immediately put him on retainer. Joe was straight forward about the case, what my options were, and what each result could be. He asked me detailed questions of everything that happened leading up to my arrest and after. He watched video with me and explained things to me throughout. With his help I was able to plea down a DUI to a reckless driving charge.

Joe represented me for a DUI charged. His unyielding commitment in my defense was apparent from beginning to end. My dealings with him was at once professional and personable; the name of empathy being his true and obvious motive in my predicament. Observing him in court was something like observing a shark. Needless to say, my DUI was reduced to a Reckless Driving, and this all for a reasonable price. I would recommend Joe to anyone who needs to be defended along the lines of his expertise. Thank you Joe!

Went to court looking to lose my license, job, and right to drive. Mr McGrath changed that with his confidence and knowledge of law. With a blood alcohol of .16. I don't know how he did it but he got it reduced to a reckless driving and saved my life and career. Thanks, and he's the best not just on paper he gets the job done.

Joe really cares about you as a person and takes a personal interest in your case and helping you. He put 110% into me and my case (which I know was not easy.) He got me the plea agreement I had hoped and prayed for. I would use him and only him for any other legal matters I may ever have.

Professional and friendly, was able to get me into a driving course and keep my record as clean as possible when it was already a bit spotty. Would recommend to anybody who needs good representation.

I had a series of legal challenges that if not resolved in my favor would assure that my freedom would be impaired. That is a fancy way of saying that Mr. Joe McGrath kept me from going to jail.
Mr McGrath's knowledge of the law, lawyers in the community as well as State Attorneys and Judges was absolutely INVALUABLE. Sometimes it is not what you know but who you know... Well Mr. McGrath KNOWS IT ALL! If choosing between Mr. McGrath and some attorney only 10 years out of law school, I WOULD CHOOSE MR. MCGRATH EVERYTIME!
GREAT JOB JOE!! THANKS!!
