My practice is focused entirely on defending clients accused of criminal offenses in all Virginia courts, particularly those in Hampton Roads, and the Eastern District of Virginia federal courts.  I have represented hundreds of clients on charges ranging from reckless driving to first degree murder, and have tried hundreds of criminal bench trials and numerous jury trials in state and federal court.  I pride myself on being direct with my clients, and enjoy a positive reputation amongst prosecutors, while at the same time am extremely aggressive in defense of my clients. I have a passion for helping clients who have either been wrongfully accused or who simply made a poor choice and need help.  A large portion of my client base is comprised of active-duty and former military personnel, many of whom hold a security clearance.  Having clients like these are unique - they have so much to lose if convicted, and saving their career is an exhilarating feeling.

Miracle maker
Simply put, Jarrett helped save my son’s life. I can easily say that this wonderful attorney not only commands the practice of law but knows the system and how to work that system in YOUR favor. We followed Jarrett’s instructions to the letter and it payed off with a dismissal….a dismissal. Not In a million years would any other attorney be able to accomplish this based on the charges. GCC and GTC thank you Jarrett and keep up the good fight! God bless you

One of The Best
I hired Attorney McCormack for my son's court case and he did an outstanding job at representing him. Attorney McCormack was very knowledgeable of the situation at hand and put forth great effort for my son to receive a fair ruling. He made sure that all information was clearly explained and understood to the best of our knowledge. Great office atmosphere and wonderful client service.

Confident and compassionate
I would like to start off by saying that as a African American female, I was terrified about the situation I had gotten myself in. I am a professional and my life was on the line. After reading many reviews I called Mr. McCormick and he returned my called in 30 minutes. From the very beginning he was confident, straightforward and supportive. And although he didn’t make me any promises he educated me about my options and was even able to draw my attention to things that would hurt my case. He paid much attention to detail and he took every opportunity to prove my innocence. I never had to speak in court through out my entire case. After having my felony charges dismissed at trial and proving my innocence he was even able to provide me with services for expungement. The office staff were very helpful as well. My family and I will be forever grateful to Mr. Mccormick And although attorney fees are absolute I feel like my money was well spent. If you need a lawyer that is going to fight for you with confidence then Mr. McCormick is the one. I wasn’t paid for this review and I am honored to provide the review.

Fantastic & supportive representation
I couldn't have asked for any more from Jarrett and the whole staff at McCormack & McCormack. From the very beginning he was quick to return phone calls and emails (even calling on a Sunday morning!), took the time to answer my many questions and address my concerns, and treated me with respect. As someone with no prior legal background or trouble with the law, he walked me through the process step by step and made me feel incredibly reassured and comfortable. His plan the whole way along was very proactive and I ended up with an incredible outcome. I made it through a horrific few months with as little stress as possible thanks to Jarrett and I couldn't be more grateful.

Fantastic lawyer
My son and I would like to express our gratitude for the effort and outcome in our case. Mr. McCormack’s counsel was paramount in the results of our case. We would also like to thank Mrs. Courtney for her wonderful attitude and always following up if we had any questions or concerns. A huge burden has been lifted from our lives and we can not begin to thank you enough. I will absolutely recommend Mr. McCormack to anyone needing a lawyer who gives it to you straight and keeps his word.

BEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY!!!!
Jarrett not only had great understanding of the law but was very easy to work with and always did what was best for me. The staff at McCormack&McCormack was just the same. This law office is by far the best one in my book. If you need a criminal defense attorney give Jarrett a call.

The Best!
I would highly recommend Mr. McCormack for anyone who is in need of a criminal defense Attorney. My son needed an attorney for some trouble he had gotten himself into and we were blessed enough to find and hire Mr. McCormack. He is a straight shooter who tells it like it is, but with incredible tact and diplomacy. He truly cares about his clients and their family. He thinks outside of the box when it comes to handling his cases and works WITH his clients and their families in a realistic and honest manner. My son, who is 31 years old, has had a difficult past with his alcohol addiction and Mr. McCormack did not pass judgement or chastise him. He was just honest and sincere about the different outcomes that were possible in front of a Judge. He will listen to you and work with you in getting the best possible outcome for your case. He is a fantastic human being and in my opinion, is a role model for how all Attorneys should be. Thank you Mr. McCormack...for all of your help and your sincere concern! IF you or someone you know is looking for a good honest attorney who charges reasonable rates, then Jarrett McCormack is your guy!

Jarrett McCormack saved my career
I retained the services of Jarrett McCormack as well as those of the McCormack and McCormack team during a time of great personal and career uncertainty. I am an Active Duty Navy Officer with over 17years of service. The charge I faced could have ended my career. Jarrett and his team were with me every step of the way. They provided counsel and guidance as well as helping to keep me motivated throughout the process. Jarrett was extremely proactive and had me accomplish several tasks leading up to my court appearance. To say that I questioned his tactic is an understatement but I can say unequivocally that the very things he had me do in preparation for my appearance are the things the judge cited in why he was ultimately going to dismiss my case. Thanks to Jarrett and the team, I am going to continue my career in the Navy... I feel, strongly, that Jarrett treated me with respect, always had my best interest in mind, and was there for me 24/7; responding to my questions/concerns at all hours of the night. I am deeply grateful for the support I received...

Aggressive, Honest and Diligent
Those are three words I would describe my experience with Jarrett McCormack. I was facing a lot of time if convicted of a misdemeanor as I am currently on probation for felony convictions. As soon as I was arrested I retained a lawyer that popped up online but soon realized that all lawyers are not good criminal defense lawyers. I began looking for a different lawyer once I was convinced I would be found guilty if I went into court with that lawyer. I then found Jarrett McCormack. I contacted him online and received a response the same day. After talking with him for 5 minutes on the phone I felt much better about the chances with my case. I went the next day to his office and retained him. Jarrett is very knowledgeable with both the law and courtroom procedure. From the onset he informed me about the details of evidence required by the state to find me guilty as well as possible defense strategies. He was straight forward in stating he couldn't guarantee anything but he would do everything possible, and that he did. Jarrett worked on my case prior to going to court. He told me what kind of documentation I should try to get that would be useful. He spoke with the prosecutor about my case and got the charge lowered to a lesser misdemeanor prior to going to court. His paralegal took care of all the things she needed to do. Both were easily accessible throughout the entire process. When I went to trial I was prepared to take the witness stand, and expected to, however that proved to be unnecessary. Jarrett was well prepared and addressed all the key points in my case and the final result was a "Not Guilty" verdict. I was totally relieved as this ordeal had been going on for 4 months. I have total trust in Jarrett. I recommend him to anyone looking for a "Great" criminal lawyer.

Support and Professionalism at its Best!
Mr. Jarrett McCormack is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney. I have nothing but the best to say for this man. Don't be fooled by his young appearance; this man knows what he's doing! I was facing a Class 1 Misdemeanor charge for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. A maximum sentence of 1 year imprisonment and a $2500 fine. It was a long and rough road for me and I almost lost everything. Mr. McCormack had my back from day 1 when I stepped into his office. He gave me assurance, support, and knew the correct approach for me to take. He gave me a step-by-step guideline to follow to ensure the BEST outcome for my case. Everything discussed between Jarrett and I was strictly confidential which presented me a sound mind. If for whatever reason my attorney was not available by phone or e-mail, he always replied to my questions and concerns PROMPTLY. As pleasing as it is to receive prompt replies, I was more impressed to receive updates on any new information either from him or that the opposing party may have. Jarrett's pricing is standard. Fixed fees. My advice: If you're reading reviews to see how pricing is -- I'll put it to you this way: You get what you pay for. The pricing is a normal, standard, fixed fee and it is reasonable. He'll work with you; payment plan. I always paid in full, but that's just me. Mr. McCormack saved me. He pulled all the strings! He got me everything I needed, told me everything I needed to do; was always very organized and prepared in court (no missing documents), had a great argument and what's the best thing about it all? After all the stressed I endured trying to figure out whether I was going to be incarcerated or not, Mr. McCormack kept me out of jail. After it was all said and done, the judge sentenced me to 12-Months ALL SUSPENDED! I was shaking! I couldn't feel a thing! I was numb! Surely, I thought I was done. But thanks to an amazing lawyer by my side, I was able to walk out of there a (semi) free man! HEY! It's better than being behind bars! The court room was shocked, and the people pressing charges against me weren't too happy either (to say the least), but justice got served that day IN MY FAVOR! If your in trouble then you NEED legal counsel. I highly recommend Jarrett McCormack. He will not only represent you, but he will guide you through the right steps to ensure a good outcome. Are you military? No problem. His father represents all active duty and reserve. Call McCormack & McCormack today. They won't let you down.

Great attorney!!!
I was extremely pleased with Jarrett's knowledge and overall help.

Awesome Lawyer
Mr. McCormack was exceptionally reassuring throughout my case. He was very knowledgeable and put me at ease. He was always quick to return my calls and answer any questions I had even if they were the same ones I had already asked. As active duty military I stood to lose a lot based on the outcome of my court case which he understood as he has a strong understanding of military personnel as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone needed his services.
