Review James Garrett

  • Terrible at time management and phone calls

    1.0 star

    Posted by Justin Page

    I had retained Mr. Garrett as my attorney at a tune of $2500 to only go to preliminaries. After I was charged with a felony I bonded out. After I bonded out the DA added a charge due to Mr. Garretts poor oral skills at preliminaries. I was then locked up for the 2nd charge and left in Va Beach correctional for 9 days because Mr. Garrett blew off 3 people i had calling him plus myself in the cell block. Needless to say I fired him after he finally got me a bond hearing on day 9 of being in jail. Meet my new attorney in the parking lot and hired him with no problems.

    A couple years back Mr. Garrett got me out of some serious domestic charges, I cannot thank him enough for his help. A family disagreement ended up with me going to jail with charges no one wanted filed, but since it was a domestic case Virginia Beach stepped in. Most everything was dropped thanks to Mr. Garrett, again I cannot thank him enough. I will, without a doubt, go to him if I need legal help again.

  • Mr. Garrett Helped Me Out Of A Jamb.

    Where do I start? I got myself into a tough spot. I did some really dumb things with my friends. I got caught in a difficult position and my parents found Mr. Garrett on Google. He came to see me at the jail on a Sunday afternoon, and he was at my bond hearing on Monday morning. He was able to get me out of jail immediately, and then he was relentless with the case until the prosecutor dropped the charges. Mr. Garrett had me jumping through hoops right and left, but in the end it was worth everything I had to do. Thank you, thank you!

    Mr. Garrett helped with a case of mine. I was living with some friends at the time and I was charged with some pretty serious matters based on what my roommates had done. Mr. Garrett worked hard to prove my innocence. I owe my freedom, my clean record and my future to him. Very good lawyer. I'd recommend him to anyone.

    I can't overstate how satisfied I am with Mr. Garrett's help on my case. I consulted with several lawyers before I found Mr. Garrett with a simple Google search. He was the one I thought most knowledgeable about my type of case. I was never promised anything, but Mr. Garrett gave me the confidence I needed to fight my charges, and we WON. The trial procedure was long, but he was there to reassure me. Mr. Garrett checked in with me by email and phone calls from time to make sure I knew what was happening and to see that I was doing alright. This alone was worth the legal fee. I would recommend Mr. Garrett to anyone and everyone needing a great criminal attorney.

  • Felony DUI Reduced

    I had a tough case. Mr. Garrett was able to recommend me to some alcohol counseling help and he negotiated with the prosecutor to get my DUI charge down from a felony. He couldn't do anything about the jail time, but I was and am happy with the outcome. He worked hard for me.

    Attorney Garrett was great. He didn't take nothing from the commonwealth witness and prove they was lying. He got my charge dismissed. He a good lawyer and I'd use him again.

    I never had to hire a lawyer before. I caught some charges when I was with some friends and found Mr. Garrett on the internet. He worked with the prosecutor and got my charges dismissed. Thank you for all your help.
