Strongly Recommend
I recently hired Mr. Louie to defend a charge of speeding at 80mph in a 55mph zone. As an out of state resident, I was surprised to learn that this is automatically considered reckless driving in Virginia, which itself is considered a misdemeanor in the state. Mr. Louie's counsel resulted in a proper outcome which was in line with our goal of avoiding a reckless driving charge. Both Mr. Louie and his staff were professional and attentive throughout the process, and his experience is demonstrated by his knowledge and calming presence. It is obvious that Mr. Louie has a strong working relationship with many parties in the Virginia Beach area. I believe that this is an asset for an area with such a large out of state/military population and relatively harsh traffic laws. Overall great job!

Great honest Lawyer
I was pulled over for going 37 over the limit. I did not know how strict the laws in VA since I'm from NJ. I had called several lawyers who I just didn't trust or like. So I went with my gut and chose Peter Louie. My instinct was spot on. Peter is realistic, knowledgeable and most importantly honest. I was facing jail, license suspension, a misdemeanor and a $3500 fine. I walked away with a $400 dollar fine. Everything else was dropped, no jail . no 3500 dollar fine, no suspension and no misdemeanor. Do as Peter says and all will be alright. I highly recommend Peter Louie and his firm.

Reckless speeding
I was ticketed in VA for doing 66 in a 45 MPH zone. If you're not familiar with VA law, anything over 20+ MPH is considered "reckless speeding". Reckless speeding is NOT a traffic violation but rather a criminal offense subject to a maximum $2,500 fine, 1 year's license suspension, and 1 year in jail. Being from out of state, I had Peter represent me in court. He was able to get the charges reduced to "improper driving", which is a minor traffic infraction. I can't imagine how a better result could have been achieved.

Reckless Driving
I received a reckless driving ticket in Accomack county for going 81 in a 55. Peter was professional and helped me to get my ticket reduced to an improper driving ticket. I highly recommend him!

Amazing Lawyer for Out of State Residents to Hire
I am an out-of-state resident charged with a serious traffic misdemeanor. As I had never had any type of legal trouble before, I was distraught and had no idea what to do. Peter John Louie and his staff were great at explaining what was charged, how they would represent me, and the most likely outcome. Between hiring and the trial, they were extremely responsive to my questions, and the day of the trial reached out to me immediately with a positive outcome. I would recommend for out-of-state residents needing a trial in absence.

84 in a 55
Mr. Louie helped me reduce my 84 in a 55 to a 19 above speeding ticket. I had to pay a $119 fine and that’s all. He saved me from getting a class 1 misdemeanor! I am more than happy with my experience with Mr. Louie and his team!

Choose Peter Louie, you won’t regret it!
Peter Louie helped me get my 15 mph speeding ticked dropped to a 0 points non moving violation. I will be forever grateful. Mr. Louie and his staff are very nice. I am a college student so I was very busy with school but Mr. Louie and his staff made sure to keep me updated on my case with personal calls and emails. Choose Peter Louie, you won’t regret it!

Superb Representation!
Peter John Louie and his firm represented me in a serious speeding ticket charge. As an out-of-state resident and driver, I needed highly competent representation - and it was provided to me, efficiently and professionally. They gave me excellent advice on preparation of my defense, and stood by me to a successful conclusion!

64/35(Reckless Driving) in VA Beach. Outcome-44/35
I was charged with reckless driving for speeding (64/35) in VA Beach. I have never had a ticket. I was really worried! I got a consultation with Braden Carroll. He didn’t sugar coat it. He asked me what I was looking for as an outcome. He was familiar with the VA Beach courts and explained what to expect. He gave me the specific things he recommended that I do prior to court and I did all of them. We were in communication regularly via email for the 2 months I was waiting for court. The morning of court we discussed the plan for the case. Once again, there were no expectations set or promises made beyond us going in with what we had and asking for the most reasonable outcome. I am 100% pleased with the results. 9 over (34/45). I hope I don’t need to go to court again but if I did I would call Peter Louie’s firm. Worth the money. Your record on the line is not the time to look for the cheapest deal in town. I would recommend them in a heartbeat! Thank you.

A total lifesaver
I was charged with RD in Virginia Beach. Mr. Louie was an absolute figure of calm during an otherwise stressful month and a half while waiting for my hearing. He was always available by phone, text, or email and provided the most sound advice regarding mitigation. His demeanor pre-trial was completely re-assuring. The day of the hearing, Mr. Louie was a legend. We executed our strategy, won the mercy of the judge, and had my RD reduced to a simple speeding infraction. I simply do not believe I would have gotten any other outcome without his representation.

Reckless driving charge dismissed
I found Peter John Louie law firm through a simple google search. I was impressed with the 140+ reviews and 5 star ratings. I carefully read through them to make sure they weren’t fake because how was it possible that there were that many reviews? After hiring him, I know why. Everything was quick and easy. Attorney Carroll helped prepare me for the trial by giving me a list of things to do and Attorney Louie represented me in court. He talked to the trooper before going inside the courtroom and made a deal. Attorney Louie was not out for blood. He wanted a good outcome for me but at the same time did not want to make the trooper look bad in front of everyone. I respect that a lot. In the end, my case was dismissed completely and I had no fines or court fees. I would hire him again, but hopefully I won’t have to.

Exceptional Assistance
Mr. Louie helped me with a case where the court date kept being pushed back in time due to Covid-19. The whole way Mr. Louie was very clear on what would go on at court and what to prepare before court. Since the trial was delayed so many times I had to move out of state due to military orders and Mr. Louie was very understandable of my situation and didn't change his approach on how to help me out. In the end he got the judge to dismiss my case and had a witness say good things about me. I am beyond grateful for his help and guidance as I am still new to adulting in life. I will of course recommend him to anyone in need because he helped me out and made things very clear as I am all new to these kinds of things making me very nervous but he made sure that I was in the right hands.

Peter Louie is an angel sent straight form heaven!
Peter was the only lawyer I spoke with that I felt actually heard me. He was direct, laid out a clear game plan, and kept a steady hand throughout. He dealt with my anxieties with the utmost professionalism. He wasn't the cheapest lawyer I encountered but he got the results. Considering another lawyer offered to merely save me a trip back to Virginia for a court date (and nothing more), Peter was a complete bargain! I highly recommend him!

Dismissal of CnR with great attention to detail
Mr. Louie's attention to detail is superb. From the moment I requested information on my speeding charge he allotted his available time to educate me on my specific case. When the day of court arrived, he probed the officer's calibration records which were contrary to the Virginia code. He presented me with the routes available and the possible endings. After a collective decision, we decided to challenge the records. This allowed us to fight the Careless and reckless driver (CnR) charge on court, ultimately ending in a complete dismissal of CnR. I am glad I hired Mr. Louie and I can attest his work. If I hired someone without the same initiative and quick thinking that treats every case differently, I wouldn't have had this outcome.

Serious Traffic Law Violation Charges
Being a Pennsylvania resident I was extremely frustrated after receiving a serious motor vehicle law violation charge in the State of Virginia. I was out-of-state and did not know where to turn, but I knew that I needed the best possible legal counsel. I turned to Attorney Peter Louie. From the moment I began speaking to Attorney Louie during my telephone consultation I realized that he was going to be my attorney. I hired Attorney Louie and found him to be extremely competent and professional, which was reassuring to me. He made one commitment to me, which was to provide me with his best possible legal counsel. He exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Attorney Louie to anyone looking to hire the best attorney in the State of Virginia.
