A Great Team of Professionals!
I love how you get an Attorney to cover your case who has knowledge of your situation. Some things they may not know, however, they seek out all they can to assist their clients. I’ve appreciated the fact that they talk to, and help each other in all cases. I appreciate them seeking out Mental Illness knowledge in both criminal and traffic cases. They will listen and really try to help!!! The Commonwealth has rules of their own; yet Christina, her husband Daeman, and team of lawyers really hit hard!!! I wish they could hit harder when it comes to mental illness in these cases! It is real! Especially with Covid-19 cases; mental illness has increased!!!

Highly Recommend!
Speeding/reckless driving in Virginia is a serious charge. Mrs. Pendleton represented me in court, where the charge was dropped and I received no points.

Reckless Driving Reduced
I was driving from DC to Florida and was pulled over in Greensville County Virginia. I received a reckless driving ticket 85/70 and was surprised to found out it was misdemeanor in VA being from FL. I did research on lawyers and Christina Pendleton & Associates was by far the best choice. The law firm offered a very reasonable and fair fee for their services with the speed being under 89 mph. Her law firm was in constant contact with me either by phone or email. They always responded to my emails in the same day which I was very pleased about. My reckless driving 85/70 was reduced to a infraction for defective equipment with a fine and no points. I highly recommend Pendleton & Associates if you are from out of town and need a lawyer to represent you.

Professional service - reckless driving
I was charged with reckless driving. Common case over 80 in 65. Perfect communication with stuff. Reasonable prices. Christina and her stuff did a great job. No need to go to court and taking day off. Thank you for professionalism.

Best Service Possible
I was charged with Reckless Driving (83/65) in Feb. earlier this year. I contacted Christina for her and her associates to represent me, the process was quick and easy. I was able to get my charge reduced to a 74/65 even with a prior driving history, which is only an infraction and is 3 points instead of 6 on my license and not a misdemeanor. On-top of the i did not have to appear in court. If anyone needs a lawyer and is skeptical about who to get, Christina is the right choice, i would recommend her and her associates to anyone who is in need of a traffic attorney.

Amazing Lawyer!
I was very pleased with her as my attorney in a reckless driving charge I received a couple of months ago traveling through Petersburg, Va. As I live out-of-state (NC), Ms. Pendleton was very diligent in her communication with me, and was ready and willing to answer any questions I had about my case. She successfully got my case dismissed, with only a driving course as a requirement, which I was able to take online. Her initial consultation was free, and her rates were very affordable. She is an extremely intelligent and competent lawyer!

Great service on speeding ticket
Ms. Pendleton represented me in Hanover for a speeding ticket on I-95 and citation for improper window tint. She kept me well informed of all I needed to do, and I did not have to appear in court. I was very pleased with the outcome.

I had a speeding ticket, and got a good price from this firm. Didn't have to take off work to go to court and ended up with a good resolution to the ticket.

Traffic Violation
I had no idea in the state of VA reckless driving is ten miles over the speed limit. I did not know what to do or how to fight this until I contacted by Christina Pendleton. I am so grateful for her and her team!

Great Price, Easy to work with, GREAT RESULT
Christina represented me in court for a speeding violation of 83/70. I had a similar previous violation a number of years before as well. She was able to reduce the charge to a defective equipment charge, carrying no points, and I didn't even have to show up in court! I needed a lawyer who would be able to flexibly communicate and get the job done efficiently and she's the one.

Excellent representtation
Christina Pendleton made it easy to deal with my speeding citation in Virginian. Very clear communication of what was required before and after the court date. Very professional. Would recommend if you have a speeding citation in VA.

Reliable Attorney for a inexpensive price.
She was very responsive and got to my case right away. I got the charges dismissed pending taking the driving school and paying court fees, which is what I did not expect coming in. But she let me know shortly after. I had a good experience with her.

Couldn't be happier!
I received a ticket coming back to NC after visiting family in VA. Everyone in the office was very helpful and could not have been any nicer. My ticket was for 83 in a 70, which in VA is a charge of Reckless Driving. Christina was able to get this reduced to Defective Equipment, which carries zero points and will not affect my criminal record. For this, I am very happy!

Excellent Representation
After receiving a speeding ticket in VA I, like most people, was going to just pay the fine and forget about it, however I was shocked to find that this charge was actually categorized as a "Misdemeanor". After doing some online research I decided to contact Ms. Pendleton's firm for representation. Within minutes I was told what needed to be done and how to go about doing it. The fee was very reasonable and the entire process went very smoothly. Thank you Ms. Pendleton & Associates.
