Mr. Michael Kiely assisted in a very professional and experienced manner and achieved a quick and good resolution to my traffic case. Would call on him again if ever necessary.

Great Result
I was very sad to receive a 20 mile speeding ticket on I95 on thanksgiving. I hired Michael for help not knowing whom to trust, online. Michael was able to get my ticket dismissed! I need to attend an 8 hr classroom course though. I highly recommend Michael for out of state folks like me.

Go with a Pro
Got tagged on the million dollar mile down in Hopewell. No talking your way out of a ticket down there. Called Mr. Kiely who squared me away right from the start through the court date. If you have a job where any negative information on your record could be a liability, I would call Mr. Kiely.

Would recommend
Michael Kiely was a pleasure to work with. He was professional and knowledgable in every way and more than willing to explain the finer details of my case so that I was comfortable in what may or may not be the outcome. While I hope I never need him again, he will be my first call for any legal representation.

Great Attorney
Michael Kiely represented me in a case involving a timeshare I had purchased back in the 80's in Virginia. I haven't lived there in years so I was unfamiliar with their laws. He was very helpful, gave me good advice and in the end, the case was resolved to my satisfaction. I would definitely be a returning client.

happy with results of case
Michael Kiely recently defended me in a traffic violation case. Being from out of state it was very stressful to me since Virginia law is unique. Mr. Kiely and his entire organization were always accessible and responsive to my concerns and got the best result possible in my case. I am grateful for their help and highly recommend Mr. Kiely to anyone in need of expert legal defense.

Second to none
The first thing that impressed me was I'm from NC, but got my ticket in VA but when I contacted his firm he personally called me back within 1 hour. He continued to call me until my case was resolved. I not only didn't have to drive back to VA for court but he got my charges reduced. Hope I never need another lawyer in VA but if I do I know who I'm calling. R Taylor Newport NC

Reckless Speeding
Michael was very professional and knowledgeable in every interaction I had with him. He was very prepared for the court appearance, and we were successful in having the charges dismissed. I would recommend working with him.

Reckless driving, VA.
Got hit with reckless driving, 87 in a 70. I live in New Jersey was on my way home from visiting a friend. I had no idea what to do. Mr. Kiely was very informative on what to expect and handled everything. I am extremely pleased with the results and with his representation.

Reckless Driving 30/60
I got a reckless driving ticket while I was travelling to office , for speeding 60 on 30 , Am an Alien to this country and I never knew how this court/traffic violation works , when I started calling multiple lawyers, most of them scared me saying that I that I might end up in jail or suspension of License ,(this would impact my immigration status offcourse !!)and they would try their best to avoid a jail sentence, when I called Mr. Kiely , he honestly said Jail chances are very less ,he will try his best not to get my License suspended and to reduce the violation . Mr. Kiely took up the case and my violation got reduced to a general speeding ticket and saved me from screwing up my Immigration status .(which was nearly impossible as per other lawyers ) He presented the case in an effective manner. I was impressed by the way he delivered the points before the Judge to consider to reduce my violation . I would say ,Mr. Kiely is a Honest and Effective lawyer . Strongly Recommended !!!!

Hire Michael!
I was in Virginia from out of state and got a reckless driving ticket on I95. I was scared when I saw the potential penalties; thousands in fines, possible jail time. I hired Michael to defend me. Due to his knowledge of the Virginia courts and his personal relationships with many judges and attorneys he was able to get my ticket reduced. What a relief! I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again and encourage anyone to do so.

Reckless Driving
Michael made a stressful charge of Reckless Driving Charge into a stressfree legal experience from the moment we spoke on the phone. My ticket was in another county and I didn't even have to appear in court. Michael handled everything over the phone and represented me in court with the best outcome... charges dropped with driving school. If you need a professional and stress free lawyer for traffic violations/tickets Michael is a excellent choice!!

Experienced, professional and compassionate
Mr. Kiely was an amazing lawyer. He was professional, well informed and compassionate. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of legal representation. He made a scary experience more than tolerable. He kept me well informed at each step in the process, all while keeping my expectations reasonable. On a scale from 1-10, I'd give him an 11.

Very Professional and Easy to talk to.
I have worked with Michael Kiely several times in the past. He is very professional, easy to work with. He is a tell it like it is, and here are your options, no fluff. He also discusses all of the details during the processes. He was able to answer all my questions and concerns whenever I had them. He never made me feel like I was lost in the process or a just a number. I'd already recommended Mr. Kiely to several of my family members and they'd also hired him and are also pleased with him too! I would continue to recommend him to anyone that ask.

Reckless Driving Case
I am an out of state driver who received a reckless driving charge in Virginia. I was referred to Michael, and he did a great job of handling my case. He was in constant communication, and took care of everything promptly. Michael also did a great job of clearly communicating everything from the case to me, and making clear my responsibilities. I would highly recommend Michael if you need legal assistance.
