Mr. Short was wonderful in dealing with my domestic assault case. After concluding my consultation I decided immediately to hire Mr. Short to represent me. With the help of his assistant, purely for quick response for any questions I had during my case, Mr. Short never failed to keep me up to date with any and all information I needed and requested. Mr. Short displayed wonderful knowledge of my case and never let up on the judge while consitantly reitterating the importance of not selecting a deferred block so that I may one day complete an expungement. Today, 4 Jan 2017, was the last day in court for my expungement hearing. All went great and my expungement is in the works just waiting on paperwork to process through the system. Mr. Short was able to get finish my case with a "no conviction" and also was able to get me "first time offender status with a not deferred outcome" allowing for my expungement. I only had to complete an angeanagement class. All in all Mr. Short would definitely be my first choice for representation in the future.

If you need a top defense attorney who is professional, trust worthy, articulate and equitable then look know further. Jim has an exceptional work ethic and leverages all of his resources available to resolve any legal issues. Our family had a need to use Jim as a lawyer and he went way above and beyond our expectations and was able to get our case dismissed. If you need a lawyer in Virginia, I highly recommend Jim Short.

Mr. Short is an extremely personable attoruney and was the only reason I was able to get my traffic violation from reckless to speeding. When first meeting with him I felt like I was meeting with a friend/family member and that's because he's 100% invested in your best interests. If you're looking to resolve any criminal defense, DUI and DWI, family, social security, or guardianship disputes in Hampton Roads give him a call.

My son's friend took his parents charge card to go shopping. My son signed those charge cards as he was an adult and his friend was a minor. We hired Mr. Short to defend my son against the resulting five felony charges.
His experience as a prosecuting attorney enabled Mr. Short to change the venue from civil to juvenile court and have both boys appear before the same judge.
After consulting with the prosecuting attorney he was able to get the charges reduced from five felonies to two misdemeanors. After speaking with the judge he was able to get the misdemeanors deferred in lieu of community service.
Throughout this ordeal Mr. Short was always available for discussion, kept us informed of schedules, strategies, and the legal process in general, and treated my family with the utmost courtesy. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Mr.Short is an awesome lawyer! He takes the time to get to know you and your case. I was charged with Reckless driving (74 in a 45) and Mr.Short was able to get it reduced to speeding (54 in a 45). Mr.Short's goal was fulfilled and I did not get convicted of this criminal offense. He is a great attorney and I definitely recommend him. (:

Mr. Short represented me on a reckless driving charge. He was very professional, competent and did an exceptional job in court representing me. As a result the judge reduced the charges to the lowest level speeding conviction. This saved me from having a reckless driving conviction on my record and from a huge increase in my car insurance premiums. If you are looking for a good attorney I would highly recommend Mr. Short.

Mr. short represented me during a reckless driving charge and was exceptionally professional and helpful. He was very forthcoming about all charges prior to any commitment and assisted me in ways I did not know to expect. His staff dutifully assisted with reminders of my court date, directions and expectations within the courtroom.
My case was dropped and nothing remains on my record.

Mr. Short represented me on short notice and exceeded the expectations of what I thought the result of my court case would have been. Everything he told me to do and take care of before court helped me alot. I have had other lawyers in the past who are last in first out types and Mr. Short was the complete opposite. He showed interest in the case and you can tell he cares about his clients. I strongly recommend that if you or anyone you know needs to seek legal counsel, Mr Short is your guy. Thank you
