Very Knowledgable and Outstanding Attorney
I contacted Price-Benowitz regarding a charge for a Misdemeanor, facing $2,500 and/or 12 months in jail. I was given the name of Nicholas Braswell, that would be contacting me. He returned my call and listened to all the evidence. He was upfront and advised that I would not be going to jail. That, he was confident in letting me know. I had spoke to another attorney, and he was not that confident. Needless to say, I went with Mr. Braswell. He was tenacious in getting the Misdemeanor dismissed, and no court charges. If you every need an attorney that will fight for you, Nicholas Braswell, will get the job done.

Terrific Job handling case
Nicholas was prompt in getting in touch, clear in what steps I needed to take, and re-assuring as to the probable outcome. I had the opportunity to speak and communicate via email several times prior to the court date, and he stayed on top of my concerns and questions.

Hours left?
Mr Braswell was great. I did have questions about the fee. I paid 1500.00 for 4 hours. My case took an hour and a half at most. I never received any type of bill or refund.

Life Saver!
Mr. Braswell was able to get me out of a very bad situation where I felt helpless. He really made everything all better and I am very grateful for his counsel and guidance through a difficult time.

Case Withdrawn!!!
After interviewing six different attorneys, we decided to go with Mr. Braswell. It was a petit larceny charge where guilt had already been admitted. He used his skills to get the case withdrawn -completely exceeding our expectations. We didn't have to worry about downgraded charges or anything. It's like it never happened. We connected with him on a personal level, which made us feel much more comfortable and confident in him. I highly recommend Attorney Nicolas Braswell! I prayed and he hustled and the outcome was awesome!

Attorney Nicholas Braswell is the best! He is caring and compassionate and treated me like a friend instead of just a client. When I was unsure, he knew what to say to make me have confidence in the outcome. He went above and beyond on my case. He got the charge reduced and ultimately it was dismissed! I HIGHLY recommend Nicholas Braswell if you ever need an attorney who is truly on your side!

Great representation
Attorney Braswell was efficient, personable, and professional. He guided me through my court proceedings and even made sure I was in good standing with my judge when I had to arrive late. I recommend him to everyone of sound representation.

Personal Attention
I have had several customers sing Mr. Brazwell’s praises. He is knowledgeable in his profession and is a networking attorney. I’ve recommended him to several friends as well as customers. He gets the job done.

Cottrell vs Henrico and Goochland
After numerous continuations by the prosecution in both Henrico and Goochland counties for any number of reasons (test results not ready, prosecution not prepared, etc.) Nicholas was able to convince both Henrico and Goochland counties to dismiss all charges with prejudice. Needless to say, we are very happy with the outcome.

Amazing!
Nicholas was phenomenal and managed to get my pending reckless driving charge reduced drastically. He was professional and responsive to my questions and concerns. Hopefully I’ll never been in another sticky situation like this again but if I am, Nicholas would be the first person I reach out to.

BEST LAWYER EVER !!!
I got myself caught up in some mess and I was panicking about what to do and I googled the best lawyers around me and I came across Nicholas after 3 prior consultations and Nicholas ultimately made me feel like he could get the job done without me getting a record and boy DID HE. He is a shark in a suit and if you’re in trouble and you need help don’t be afraid to give him a call. Best money ever spent.

Outstanding Representation!!!
We found Attorney Braswell via internet (Google) and scheduled an consult. Attorney Braswell was our fourth consultation and the first attorney that wasn't scared to plead not guilty. He intently listened to the verbal summation, followed by video evidence. As the trial date approached, he conducted my preparations of what to expect and ensuring I had no questions. Lastly, as he stated, all charges were dismissed even though the county prosecutor attempted to manipulate our not guilty plea on three separate occasions as well as attempt to levy a lesser charge, which Attorney Braswell successfully dismissed. I totally recommend attorney Braswell and have already forwarded his name to others.

Excellent Lawyer!
Mr. Braswell truly represented me in this case with such fervor and dedication. In a time that was extremely hard for me he was able to calm me and feel confident in the outcome. When judgement day came I could not have asked for a better outcome. Truly a force to be reckoned with in the court room.

Amazing!
My experience with Mr. Braswell was nothing but positive. From the initial contact to the end of the case. He made me feel secure and I really appreciated how he explained the details of my case for me step by step. When I had questions, he didn't talk down to me like I've had other lawyers do when I wanted more understanding. He explained everything in a way that I could understand, was patient, warm, sincere, and what I liked the most was that he was actually out to help me rather than just have another client under his belt. Would definitely recommend to any and everyone, and I have!

Nick is the G.O.A.T
I contacted Price- Benowitz for a consultation I received a criminal citation for breaking a city ordinance code. I was assigned to Nicholas Braswell. Thank God I got him !!! Nick was very professional he answered all my questions and kept me calm during the whole process. The day before court I was rushed to the hospital I called Nick at 1 am in the morning to let him know I wasn't going to make the court hearing. He advised me to keep him updated and he will handle the rest. I looked like hell after emergency surgery and who came to visit me in the hospital.... Nick. He constantly checked in on me to make sure I was doing fine. Nick felt more like family than an attorney to me. I'm happy to say Nick has gotten my charges dismissed. We didn't need to go to trail or anything. Whenever I needed him he was there. If I had to hire a lawyer again I'd call him first. He's simply the best lawyer I've worked with. Nick goes above and beyond compared to the average attorney. My only regret now is that he doesn't handle family law. I'd hire him again. Nick it was a pleasure working with you and you are nothing short of incredible.
