Show cause case
I was charged with a show cause for breaking a peace bond. I honestly had no idea what I had done to break the complainant's peace since I purposely had nothing to do with her and I had moved over 100 days after she made the complaint. Jason took my case and worked diligently to discover the reason. He found that the reason was unjustified. In court, Jason discredited the complainant and found that everything she said was untrue and the case was dismissed. Jason was very understanding of my mental state as I dealt with this trying time. He was compassionate and he and his team reassured me often that I had nothing to worry about. He definitely proved in court that justice and honesty always wins. I highly recommend Jason Miyares for any legal advise or representation you need.

Professional advice on Real Estate matter
I hired Attorney Jason Miyares to advise me on a Real Estate matter and his clarity on my choices was very helpful. His 14 years of experience include doing litigation so he provided me knowledge to get the results I need with a real estate boundary issue. The Hanger Law team was very efficient and I will use Attorney Jason Miyares again if the need arises. My highest recommendation to Attorney Miyares and his team at Hanger Law.

Hanger Law was exceptionnel. Our attorney Jason Miyares, helped us out with a couple of personnel matters and, when we sold our home, all the paperwork was ready to go. No waiting around. Jason and his team were very thorough, not to mention, accurate. Hire this team! You'll be pleased you did!

Great representation for traffic court, timely, responsive, and knowledgeable.
I hired Mr. Miyares after receiving a speeding ticket in Virginia Beach. He was thorough in describing the process, specific in outlining his tactics, and responsive to any of my questions. He is highly capable, knowledgeable, and well respected - the perfect traits when deciding on a local attorney. I will be seeking his council and services for any other legal matters that arise!

Advocatus Optimus!
I hired Jason to represent me for a reckless driving charge. Like most I was nervous about the potential outcomes, but Jason and the Hanger Law office handled my case with such care and professionalism that my worries subsided. During proceedings Jason was able to use the atmosphere of the courtroom to our advantage. (Another defendant before I was called was acting foolish with the judge and officer) It was the most impressive quick thinking I’ve ever seen. I can not thank Jason enough for representing me.

Professional and caring
Mr. Miyares helped my fiancé and I get out of a terrible situation with our landlord, on very short notice. With this being our first time having to do this, he walked us trough everything and made the process very easy. Couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to represent us.

Excellent service, professional, compassionate
He helped my fiancee and I reach our goals in our tenants assertion form and allowed us to reasonably move out of a previously unsafe property. We are so thankful for his guidance and the coorperation he had with the other lawyer to get things solved in a timely fashion, with our needs in mind.

A good lawyer and a friend
He did everything he could to get my reckless driving reduced and with as an extensive record as I have, it was going to be nearly impossible but he did it. He gave all the right advice and got the job done. Not only is he good at his job, he's an easygoing person to get along with and is friend as much as a lawyer. I highly reccomend him. I met him for the first time with this case.
