Highly Recommended
I originally came into contact with Mr. Rowlands when he represented the individual I was suing in General District court. (In other words, he was the opposing counsel). He litigated that case so well and effectively, that I followed up with him regarding a matter I needed assistance with regarding a Federal inmate I'm advocating for. He completed the most thorough and complete version of that particular document (a Power of Attorney,) I have ever seen. The third matter I consulted with him on was regarding a civil matter in General District court I had started on my own, but then needed to follow up on with counsel. For one thing, one generally wouldn't choose to secure the services of former opposing counsel, but due to his excellent work, I was so impressed with Mr. Rowlands as a whole, that I knew he was who I would want handling any legal matter I may ever have. He was a superb litigator (with a difficult client who he was working with under far less than ideal circumstances,) and we worked together to reach a settlement that was satisfactory and in the best interests of all parties. He is a great communicator and truly goes above and beyond to get the job done. Even more impressively, regarding the third matter, while he certainly gave me the resources and information I needed to handle the matter, he also advised me that in his opinion, while I have a case, the time and energy required for me to pursue it really wouldn't be worth it, in the long run. He also advised me of an entirely different option that I will be pursuing in the interest of justice. Mr. Rowlands has impeccable ethics and skill. He is very easy to work with (regardless of which side of the table you're on!) and I could note rate him any higher than I have. I will most definitely go back to Mr. Rowlands for any legal matter I may have in the future. If you need a good lawyer, regardless of how simple or complicated your case may be, he is the man for the job.

One of the very best Attorneys in Tidewater
I have worked with Attorney Brent Rowlands for 15 years, and with the very greatest pleasure. Brent is the best, and will always handle all my legal work in Virginia. An A+ Attorney, and I have no hesitation in recommending him. Brent has handled a very difficult and long "on going" probate case for an estate and has been tremendous! Most of all he did this for us nearly 1,000 miles apart. A+

Unpaid commercial lease payment
I had unpaid rent from a commercial property. We met the other attorney at court, negotiated and settled the dispute in record speed out in the hall before even going in front of the judge. This clearly could have been dragged out costing me money. I was very pleased and impressed with the entire process. Not all lawyers are interested in dragging out a case and taking all your money. I referred a friend to Mr. Rowlands and he received the same outstanding service.
