I was charged with reckless driving 80/55 , contacted Mark and he simply delivered his promise after reviewing all possible options and got the best outcome possible considering how tough judges are in VA Beach , they simply do not play , he was able to negotiate reducing it down to 19 over the limit , which was exactly what he said he would do, Great job!

I received a speeding ticket several months ago and this would have been my first speeding ticket in over 16 years. I was going to pay it off but decided to try to maintain my very clean driving history. I never in my life worked with lawyers so the process of finding one was pretty intimidating. My concerns were my chances for a fully dismissed charged or a lesser violation that would not lead to points to my driving record. I looked through yelp and AVVO and a few other sites. Throughout my process what I learned that I valued most was good communication with my prospective hire. I had considered another lawyer early on however communication with them wasn't all that great. It did not leave me a good warm and fuzzy at all. About 1 week prior to my court date I sent many notice to a variety of lawyers and Mark Andrews Contacted me immediately. He was very informative and provided realistic expectations on my outcome. Luckily for me by the time I reached him I already completed my driving improvement course and had a copy of my driving record. We had a terrific phone conference a few days prior to the court date. At this point I felt really good that I did all I can to secure a favorable outcome. Everything was in his hands. Without getting into detail he got my charged dismissed. It happened so fast as I was called up to the stand and literally 2-3 minutes later I was told I could leave as he thanks the judge for me. I was in shock I had to ask again if I was truly off the hook. He stated all charged dropped, not fine, no court cost and shook my hand. I felt like a million dollars. That being said he is ABSOLUTELY professional and he knows the system really well down to all of the judges and their personalities and tendencies. I say without hesitation if you have a speeding ticket and want to go for the most favorable outcome YOU MUST HIRE Mark Andrews. Keep in mind the outcomes are never a guaranty but he will fight for you as best as he can and it my case it has proven to be worthwhile. Mark Andrews I thank you again for taking on my case and I will do my best to enthusiastically recommend you to anyone that may need legal services.

Mark was on-time, clean and friendly. He and his group handled everything for me, and convinced the judge to waive the points and fine associated with my traffic ticket. Highly recommend!!

Mr. Andrews is EXCELLENT! I found him on AVVO and set up a consultation. After the consultation i knew Mr. Andrews was the one. He goes beyond helping his clients and works very hard into cases. He is VERY intelligent with his laws. I got a DUI dropped down to illegal possession and after completing 50 hours community service and 2 week ASAP classes, my charged were dismissed! Mr.Andrews even put in work and i didn't have to appear for my court hearing dismissal. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you get in any alcohol trouble!!! you won't regret choosing Mark Andrews as your lawyer!!!! Thank you so much for all you have done.

Unfortunately I was arrested for DUI after I go into a car accident back in late May 2016. After talking to many lawyers and feeling as though my case had no chance I was ready to give up and just plead guilty. That was until Mr. Andrews called me after I had put in an inquiry on his website. He made me feel at ease and helped me better understand my own situation, something no other lawyer was able to do in my two weeks of searching. He never once promised me a certain outcome or never had any "smoke and mirrors" about how he could absolutely win the case. He was upfront and honest about all of the outcomes and that was exactly what I needed. During our time waiting for the court date Mark and his team were always prompt in their correspondence with me. When we walked into court you could tell he was respected by many and when we walked out numerous lawyers approached me and commented on how great Mr. Andrews did fighting for me, and that they have not seen something like that before. You could tell he impressed the entire court room and kept everyone on their feet. I think everyone witnessing expected Mr. Andrews to win the case but unfortunately the judge did not rule in my favor. However, if it wasn't for Mr. Andrews, I would have suffered a much more severe consequence than what I did (blowing a .24) and I walked out of there with the absolute, bare minimum in terms of fines and punishment. I would hire Mr. Andrews again in a heart beat and I recommend that if you are in any type of serious lawful situation that you hire him too. He is worth every penny. I cannot stress this enough.

The charge was misdemeanor shoplifting. On my own, the retailer would not reveal any evidence they had against me, nor would they hear my side. My guilt was solidified in their minds. Feeling discouraged, I consulted several attorneys before hiring Mr. Andrews. His rates were about average for what I was quoted (not the cheapest, but not the most expensive). I hired him because he didn't treat me like a criminal looking to get out of charges, but like a person who was misunderstood and needed a defense. He was able to file the appropriate paperwork to force the retailer to release the video evidence they had and used their own evidence against them! Mr. Andrews and I had spoke in detail prior to arriving in court. When standing before the judge I DID NOT HAVE TO SAY ONE WORD! This was great for me, because I get very nervous. His cross examination of the witness was so great that I didn't even have to testify. The judge dismissed all the charges, and I'm now working on getting the entire ordeal expunged from my record. Mr. Andrews is a great person to have on your team. Hire him.

Mr. Andrews explained the details of the citation & kept me updated as the case progressed (Emma was extremely helpful!).
On court date, case disposition was Nolle Prosequi, before courtroom opened. Charges dropped & no need to plead my case or present my situation.

In August of 2016 I was written a ticket for reckless driving in Virginia Beach. I was flying, 88 on I-264 (55mph) and was caught dead to rights. I got online, did some research and called Mr. Andrews. He was very direct, professional, and to the point. I immediately felt confident that I was making the right decision retaining him, and following his advice, I was right. He met with me the morning of my court appearance and to say that his ducks were in a row would be a tremendous understatement. He looked me straight in the eyes, told me exactly what was about to transpire, and executed flawlessly. Mark Andrews saved my hide. He has my absolute highest recommendation for legal counsel, and my utmost gratitude. My reckless charge was reduced to speeding and the fine was significantly less than it could have been. Not to mention the long term consequences such as insurance premiums and problems with background checks. Hiring a lawyer is the way to go, hiring Mark Andrews is the best decision I could have made. I remember watching and listening to other lawyers and thinking how fortunate I was that I didn't choose ANY of them. Call him, you're making the right decision. If you're reading reviews you're probably in a pinch so don't make bad decisions. Mark Andrews is the right decision.
