Thank you, Stan!
Mr. Alexander was very helpful when I recently got a speeding ticket for going 42 in a 25mph zone. I retained Stan to represent me in court. My ticket was taken off my record, and I had to go to driving school. Mr. Alexander was efficient, answered all of my questions, and helped me through the entire process.

I would use his services again
Attny Alexander delivered and the outcome was better than expected. He stayed in communication and suggested helpful strategies. I am not finished, but the first offense was resolved with as little pain as I could have hoped for. Don't let his laid-back demeanor fool you. I would definitely recommend his services.

Competent and Kind
Standish is a fantastic lawyer. His pricing is very fair and he truly cares about getting the best possible results for his clients. When i received a reckless driving charge for speeding while in Virginia for my daughters soccer tournament, standish get was able to get the minimal penalty for me. He is a great communicator and an honorable attorney and human being! Thank you Standish, I 'm so very happy to have chosen you to represent me:) Rona

Best Traffic Lawyer
Mr. Alexander- was very knowledgeable when I called him on behalf of my wife about laws and our rights. The ticket was failing to Stop to a school bus. However it was a four lane road. He was able to get charges dropped.

Long overdue positive review
Standish was a very efficient and effective lawyer in getting my January 2019 speeding ticket reduced to a place where I only had a minimal fine and no points on my license. He did a great job of making me feel comfortable with a process that was both obscure and intimidating.

The best traffic lawyer
Alexander was very helpful. His fee was very reasonsble compared to the other lawyers i talked. I was on 92 in a 70 zone going from pa to sc and got pulled off in va. Alexander represented me in court and reduced the charges to improper driving with a fine on 350 and court costs of 90 dollars. But I also had to do a community serive for 24 hours and an online agreesive driving course.

Hopewell, VA - Reckless Driving
I retained Mr. Alexander in connection with a speeding related offense in Hopewell, Va. I was stopped after being clocked at 88 mph in a 70 mph zone and charged with reckless driving - a criminal misdemeanor in that jurisdiction. Mr. Alexander appeared on my behalf in court and, with my clean driving history, was able to get the charge reduced to a non-criminal traffic infraction. I am very satisfied with Mr. Alexander's services. He was professional, prompt, and charged an extremely fair price for his services. Though I received dozens of attorney solicitations, I am quite glad I chose Mr. Alexander and would confidently recommend that others do so as well.

Awesome Experience
I was driving from NY to Florida. I was stopped in VA for doing 81/70 (my car had a digital speedometer, and I was on cruise control at 78) The officer claimed I was going 11 over, and anything more than 10 mph over is wreck less driving which is a misdemeanor. Upon running my license he told me I had a suspension on my license, and he didn't know exactly what it was for, but long story short, he issued me 2 tickets, one for driving with a suspended lic, and for "wreckless driving" (the suspension was for failure to pay a $100.00 fee to NYS back in 2012). I contacted Mr. Alexander and explained the situation in detail, he was very confident, and made me feel more comfortable about the situation. He told me what he thought the outcome would be after patiently listening to my whole story, and he delivered. They dropped both misdemeanor to minor fines for non moving violations. Not only did Mr. Alexander make the process painless for me, his pricing is very fair as well.

Amazing !!
In September my boyfriend got into trouble, driving on revoked due to a dui and identity theft. The next day was a Sunday and Stan was the only person to call us back on that Sunday. Never once did we have to speak to a receptionist, he gave us his direct number. Stan answered all calls and emails within the same day. We are pleased with our results and would highly recommend him to anyone. Not only was he able to get us the outcome we wanted but most of all he is affordable! He is by far the best lawyer around! Stan is very direct and does not beat around the bush. He did such a great job representing my boyfriend in court. Very professional and affordable!! Stan is the man !!!

Speeding Ticlet
was very pleased at My. Stan's one on one priority to my speeding ticket. He got mine reduced to defective equipment and also educed my fine. He is the man for the job to represent you in any traffic violation. He is very patient, polite, and most pleasant to talk to on the phone. I feel like I have a personal friend in him since he became my attorney. He was very upfront with me and did promise my anything, except he would do in all his power to get my reduced and he did! SO if you need an attorney I recommend him highly. I did my research on the internet before hiring him to take care of my court date. I did not even have to go. He knows what he is doing and does not see things through rose colored glasses. I also fee he is a good Christian man. He answers his phone even after closing hours of his office. He is just everything you need in an attorney and then more. So if you are in doubt about who to hire to represent you, then look no further, cause you have found the right one, and right here. Give him a call and he will return your call in just a few hours. God bless you all and take care. Remember Stan is the man In God's love, Glenda E. from North Carolina!

Great work!
Standish Alexander did an excellent job keeping me well informed about the status of my case and answered the questions that I had pertaining to it. My charge was dismissed after a driver's course (highly recommended regardless of having a driving offense or not) and my driving record is now clean again, thanks to him!

Very prompt, knowledgeable and responsive
He was able to reach back to me right away with a great response, not too pricey, and very knowledgable. He will get you a good deal almost always and truly cares for his clients.

Quick process, positive results
Earlier this year, I received a speeding ticket in Richmond, VA, that was considered reckless driving due to VA driving laws. I currently live in GA and was unable to attend the court date, nor did I understand how to go about fighting the charge due to the unfamiliarity of VA law. Standish Alexander came highly recommended to me through my uncle, back in Boston, MA. I called Mr. Alexander and after explaining the case to him, he gladly welcomed it. He kept me well-informed throughout the entire process and it was completely painless and worry-free, entirely due to Mr. Alexander's outstanding professionalism. If you need representation, I would absolutely recommend Mr. Alexander's services.

Great Attorney
I consulted with Mr. Alexander in reference to a speeding ticket in Henrico County. It was good advice. The ticket was dismissed with a referral to driving school.
Response from Standish Alexander November 24, 2014
Thank you for your positive feedback. It really means a lot to know that my clients are happy with the work I have done for them. To me being a good lawyer means more that simple economic success. It is about providing a useful services that is actually help people. It is about helping people get through a difficult and often confusing situation. It gives me deep satisfaction to know that I have done something that has made a positive impact on someone's life and that they appreciate it.
