Reckless driving lawyer
I was represented by Mr. Mark Earley Jr. and he fought tooth and nail for me so I didn’t have to do any jail time. I appreciate his service and truly believe that he’s the only reason I’m able to even use my phone right now! I would recommend Mr. Earley to everyone I know. Hopefully you don’t need his help meaning you’re staying out of trouble, but if you are ever in need of a really good and compassionate lawyer, Mr. Earley is your guy.

Case dismissed
Mark did an awesome job advocating for me over reckless driving ticket. It was clear that the judge did not want to dismiss the charges, but was persuaded as a matter of law. I have no doubt that I would not have received the same outcome without such a good lawyer.

Great Lawyer and Firm
I highly recommend the Earley Legal Group for your defense. My attorney was Mark Earley Jr. and he is an exceptional attorney. The firm also has a great case management system which goes through a portal called My Case, that tracks your communications, uploads documents, and much more. Mr. Earley is extremely knowledgeable and he will definitely help you no matter what your situation! The best part is that his legal fee is nominal but worth every dollar!

speeding ticket
I was arrested for speeding (89 mph in a 70 mph zone) and I retained Mr. Earley to represent me. He advised me to 1. do community service (i did 25 hrs.), 2. write a brief biography. He represented me in the Hanover County District Court, and the charges were significantly reduced. I was very pleasantly surprised. The reason that the charges were reduced, in my opinion, is that Mr. Earley has an outstanding reputation as a honorable man who only represents individuals who are valuable citizens and are not a danger to the community. He did a great job and i really appreciate the efforts that he made on my behalf.

Communicative, provided excellent representation
From my first interaction for a consultation, through a best case scenario positive outcome, the entire process was incredibly positive! Mark was communicative, reassuring, extremely competent, and helped me get an amazingly positive outcome. I was kept informed, given excellent legal advice, and gold star representation. I never felt unsure, unsupported, or uninformed. Can't recommend Mark enough!

Quality Customer Service
I very much appreciated the "down to earth" interaction with Mark. He spoke to us in a calm and understanding manner and made us feel secure in his ability to help us with our case. He always retuned our calls and took quick action to resolve our case with a great outcome

Compassionate and Skilled Advocate
This was my first time for ever consulting w/, immediately contracting w/ and hiring a lawyer and I was not disappointed. I was losing sleep and was in emotional paralysis when I finally decided to reach out to Mark with a reckless driving charge which is criminal in the state of Virginia. He immediately put me at ease by promptly returning my phone call outside of business hours. He gave me an orderly process of action steps to take. This gave me back a sense of purpose and control in a situation that seemed hopeless. On the date of court, he advocated on my behalf before the judge and promptly called me to let me know that all charges had been dropped. The result was that I received a most favorable ruling because I had a most favorable legal advocate in Mark and his team. I am forever grateful.

Traffic
I was charged with a reckless driving of 104/65 which has a jail term until I consulted Mark the Undisputed Attorney who took my case and won with little fine to pay without going to jail. I will always recommend Mark to anyone on my contacts. HE IS A GREAT ATTORNEY.

Reckless Driving - Highly Recommend!
I made a stupid mistake of going well over 30 mph over the speed limit in a 55mph zone. In Virginia, this is a misdemeanor and I did not know this. I was scared and beyond stressed about this charge for a great amount of time. Mr. Mark Earley told me what to do to help reduce the punishment from the judge and by the grace of God, luck, and a lot of effort it was reduced to improper driving. He did an immaculate job of telling the judge the good points of my case. He was very professional and I seriously recommend him.
