Efficient and great
Ms. Meekins return my first phone call faster than any other lawyers and was easy to talk to. She immediatly explain the possibilities (without big threats or scare tactics) following my ticket and proposed a plan. Once the retainer was paid the paperwork was done quickly and effortlessly. On my court date she was very efficient.

I am glad I choose her!!
Ms. Meekins is very professional and relatable. I was able to get my case for a charge of reckless driving 80/55 dismissed with my driving record unharmed; with me agreeing to complete an agressive driver's course recommended by the judge.

Executive Director
After receiving a letter in the mail from Atty. Meekins, I researched her organization online. Feeling confident about the information, I called and she responded immediately. She took the time to listen to me, explaining possible options. During the entire process I felt at ease. She was always professional and available whenever I contacted her. If a friend needed an attorney, I would recommend Ms. Meekins.

Stress Relieved
Ayesha sent a letter offering her assistance. I Googled her and was pleased with the reviews. I am adding to the positive reviews. She was very pleasant to work with, coming across as down to earth yet professional. She was able to represent the specific circumstances well enough to cause an amazing and positive outcome to the case. Ayesha made the whole ordeal tolerable and we were able to sleep peacefully. I hope we never need her services again, but if we do, she is the one we would call without hesitation.

So AWESOME.
Ayesha is very professional and very pleasant. She explained the entire process to me and explained what I might expect. She was very accurate and I was very satisfied with how everything turned out. Being that I live out of state and it would have been a great inconvenience for me to have to travel back to Virginia for court, I placed my case in very capable hands. I highly recommend Ayesha!

A Professional Attorney/Highly Recommended
Attorney Meekins represented me for an appeal of a speeding ticket in Hopewell, VA. While we did not meet in person, she was extremely prompt in returning phone calls. Her advice was clear and concise and she was able to negotiate a reduced charge that did not include points. I would recommend her to others and though I would hope not to need her services in the future, I would not hesitate to contact her again.

The college student with the heavy foot!
With extreme short notice I called Atty Meekins to see if she could put her cape on and defend my daughter who happened to be charged with Wreckless Driving in Hopewell, VA. Fortunately, she was able to get the charge reduced to a speeding fine and hopefully my daughter has learned her lesson. She was upfront, professional, very thorough, and affordable.

Words don't say enough!!!
From the time she returned my call Ayesha was on her game. She had already looked into my case after me just leaving her a VM to inquiring about her services. I was being charged with A Felony Habitual driving charge and speeding at 81 MPH in a 55. Through out the whole ordeal Ayesha kept me informed with everything involved. She even took time out on a Saturday to call and give me an update about my case. How many attorneys do you know who will call you on their Saturday. The out come of my case was FAR FAR better than I expected... She not only helped me with my case, but she coached me through getting my Habitual status remove all together. Not sure how she did it, but she kept a F off of my report card, and kept me out of prison. In the unfortunate event I ever need a attorney again shes the one! I even added her to my contacts on my phone. She makes you feel like a person and not just another case. Thank you Ayesha, and keep doing what you do.

Impeccable Expertise!
I was traveling with my family this past May, returning from South Carolina to Pennsylvania, we had attended the funeral of my dear uncle. We traveled in a 7 passenger van, mother, aunt,sisters of the deceased, dad, daughter, son and cousin. We were driving through Sussex when I was stopped with my first ever speeding violation. Within weeks, I had a slew of mail from attorneys. Luckily I received Ms. Meekins letter among many others. Ms. Meekins was and is exceptional from the very first phone call that I made to her. First I have to mention that I actually have a pre-paid legal service that I pay a small monthly fee. The lawyer I spoke with gave me a completely unfavorable outcome which would have involved taking an online driving class, and points on my license. Ms. Meekins very confidently articulated an outcome which would not involve points in addition to a reduced charge. Needless to say I hired Ms Meekins and everything turned out exactly as she stated! I truly appreciated her experience and responsiveness, plus eliminating any concerns about my insurance going up! Thank you Ms Meekins!

Reduced my charge and fine.
Ms. Meekins, Esq. was helpful from the beginning. She worked with me over phone and email because I live in Pennsylvania. She reviewed my alleged charge, gave me clear instructions throughout the process, prepared my case, went to court for me, and had my charge reduced along with my fine - all for a very reasonable fee. She was very professional and took my calls on the weekend when needed. I could not have asked for a better defense attorney. When I was anxious about my case, Ms. Meekins allayed my fears and put me at ease. I knew she would perform well. Thank you Ms. Meekins - Lewis, Saint Marys, PA

Speeding Ticket Dismissed
I got a speeding ticket and wanted to have it dismissed. I contacted Attorney Meekins. She was very professional, kept me abreast of my case, and always returned my calls. I had to go to driving school, didn't mind at all. I just didn't want the ticket on my record, and Attorney Meekins accomplished my goal. If you should find yourself in that kind of unfotunate situation, or worse, I highly recommend you hire Attorney Ayesha Meekins as your attorney.

Excellent Lawyer
After hiring Ayesha Meekins I was able to have my gun rights restored. My situation was a situation that she was not familiar with and she did everything she could have in order to find answers and solutions. She fought hard for me and my rights case and I am forever grateful that I hired her to represent me.

Reckless driving ticket
I contacted Attorney Meekins concerning a reckless driving ticket. She immediately assured me that she could help me and explained in detail what she could do for me. She was knowledgeable of the judge in my case and court proceedings surrounding my case. My outcome was better than I expected minimal points against my record and less time for the points to fall from my driving record. Thanks Attorney Meekins for reassuring me and for having an outcome that matched what you promised!

Awesome attorney!
Ayeisha helped me resolve a major traffic ticket with expert skill!! She got the infraction dismissed based on the fact that the charge (reckless driving) was unwarranted.

Great Attorney
Ms. Meekins was very informative even before I hired her. She was very personable and she gave me step by step instructions on what I would need to do and what information would be required from me. I was given a ticket for reckless driving and she was able to reduce it to 1-9 over the speed limit and I did not have to take off work. She met with me to get my driving school information before the court date and promptly followed up right after court with an email letting me know what happened and what steps I need to take to pay the court fines. She was great!

“Reckless Driving” charge reduced!
I was charge with reckless driving and glad that I chose Ayesha Meekins to represent me. I am grateful to her for representing me and would also like to express my gratitude for her efforts and dedication for my case. It is really hard to make someone who doesn’t know you believe that you are innocent but she still put all her efforts in clearing my name. For anyone looking for an Attorney as I was it could be nerve wrecking when it comes to the selection process especially when you live out of State. I chose Ayesha and was very pleased with her services, she is very knowledgeable and will guide you through every step of the way. Sincerely Henry O
