DWI & Refusal Dropped!
If you want a lawyer that is going to actually fight for you in the court room, John Naumovski is the lawyer to hire. I was charged with DWI, Refusal, and Reckless Driving. Fortunately, Naumovski was able to get the DWI and Refusal dropped. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Thank you!

I hired John for my stepson, a navy officer charged with reckless driving. John virtually saved my stepson's career by preparing his case and presenting material facts that got my stepson a major reduction in his charge. I am incredibly grateful!

THE BEST LAWYER!
I am so glad I changed lawyers at the last minute and chose Mr. Naumovski. It was amazing to see Mr. Naumovski work his magic in the courtroom. (His knowledge of the law). Mr. Naumovski is a very skilled lawyer with years of experience who cares about you as a person I really mean it. Mr. Naumovski saved my life. I had a DUI first offense and he got it dismissed. I was so happy. The look on the prosecutor and officer's face was Priceless! If you're looking for a real lawyer who will make you feel calm, stays in touch, and will fight for you, I highly recommend him. I'm still ecstatic about the outcome of my case. Thank you so much Mr. Naumovski from my whole heart. ❤

Great Lawyer!
Great Lawyer. I was facing a DUI, a failure to submit to a breathalyzer and a traffic infraction. I gave John a call, he was very direct and upfront about everything which is a necessary trait for a defense attorney. He was very to the point, told me what I could be potentially facing, as well as all the possible sentencing and our options moving forward. He kept in great contact with me, and on our first day in court I walked away with a reckless driving charge, had to pay a $250 fine, and enroll in a course. No suspended license and no ignition interlock system. He is wonderful, I referred to him as a magician because he sure works some magic. I will recommend him to anyone that needs a good defense.

Cream of the Crop
I hired John to represent me in a very crucial criminal matter days before my hearing. From the start, John was committed to achieving the best possible outcome for my case. He did more research in a matter of days than my prior attorney had done in months. In the courthouse, John consulted with the prosecutor several times before the hearing commenced. Ultimately, my case was dropped. I recommend anyone in the Hampton Roads area to hire Mr. Naumovski when they are undergoing any type of litigation.

Best in the Legal Business
John had my case dropped. His advice to me was superb and his dealing with the city attorney was done with fervency. It could have been much worse for me. John's diligence kept my reputation and records from being blemished!

Solid Defense
John was very informative and made sure that I understood the possible outcomes from my reckless speeding ticket. He knew the judge and recommended a course of action that ended up in my favor. I'm very pleased with the outcome from my court visit with John at my side.

the representation professional and organized it was cost effective
My experience with Mr. John Naumovski was extremely pleasant and he was very professional and courteous. He always kept in touch with me via e-mail, text, and phone in regards to the updates and status of my case. He went out of way to meet with me whenever I need to get clarification on legal terms. My attorney represented as a person and not a dollar amount. He explains all possible outcomes and options he could foresee me and did extensive research so that I never had any surprises. Not only was the representation professional and organized it was cost effective. Overall, I was more than pleased with having Mr. Naumovski as my attorney. I would be more than happy to refer to anyone who needs legal assistance without a second thought. My rating: 5/5

Mr Naumovski is an Excellent attorney
I reviewed every lawyer in the Area- Mr Naumovski had 100+ 5 star positive reviews by the people who who hired him- negative reviews for the most part don't exist for him. I was being charged with trespassing (a criminal misdemeanor) while in the parking lot - all while the parking lot , boat launch and fishing pier was still open. the sign - website and what the officer told me- all was pretty vague. its turns out the officer interpreted me being in the parking lot as being 'in the park' (which closes at sundown) even though the pier - boat launch and parking lot was open until they close the gate (10PM) which had not happened yet (the other way you could put it. is after nightfall you can use the parking lot only if you are fishing or launching a boat- but it doesn't actually say that on the sign, website or when i called their office phone for clarification. Mr Naumovski had been very clear on the possible out comes (I could still be considered guilty ) but the strategies he used were solid, his pre-court prep work is excellent and the price is very affordable under the circumstances. On the day of court right before we presented ourselves to the judge - Mr Naumovski appealed to the officer and got the officer to drop the charge. Mr Naumovski is a top notch attorney. I am very fortunate to have found him to represent me. He is the only attorney i would want in the unlikely event that I would have to go to court again.

DUI, reckless driving
Looked John online, and he had the most compelling reviews. Consulted with, then retained for two different court cases. The more serious charge was a second DUI, involving an accident with another vehicle. I thought I was going to get the book thrown at me, instead he got the offense downgraded, and worked for me tirelessly the entire time.

Immaculate! Superior service.
Upon internet research for Virginia traffic defense lawyers, I was highly impressed with Mr. Naumovskis' impeccable credentials. During our first consultation I was confident in hiring Mr. Naumovski. After retaining John Naumovski as my defense lawyer, I was impressed with how precise and timely he comunicated with me. John Naumovski was very accurate and professional in every process during my case. Certainly help me understand Virginia State laws and the charges I occurred. John Naumovski was consistent throughout my case. He even walked me out.

Exceeded my Expectations at every turn
I sought John's help for a DWI that I had received. Right from the start, John was on top of my case and kept me well informed and prepared about the process. He carefully reviewed the evidence and informed me about possible defenses and the pros and cons of each. In court, he really shined and was able to dismantle the prosecutor's case. I left court without a DWI conviction. I truly can recommend him to anyone who needs an ethical and excellent attorney.

Virginia 95 in a 55
I found myself in the unpleasant position of getting a Reckless Driving charge for doing 95 in a 55. in Virginia this is about as serious as things get short of a DUI. I reached out to John and asked for his help. From the onset, he was prompt, courteous and ultimately professional in the way he handled my case. He took the time to explain in detail what various outcomes I was looking at. Prior to my trial date, I met in person with John during which time he reviewed my case in detail as well going over what I could expect in court. He quite literally told me exactly where to stand and even suggested I create a sketch to help illustrate what happened for the judge. On the morning of the trial he met with me and my wife (my witness) and then spoke to the trooper that pulled me over. When we were called before the judge John performed as well as any attorney I've ever worked with (large corporate lawyers). After reviewing the details of my case and thanks to John's great idea to create a visual illustration the judge agreed to reduce my reckless charge to simple speeding of 75 in a 55. Yes, it's still a ding to my license but it is nothing compared to the jail time and suspension that I was staring at. The trooper even shook my hand as I was leaving the courtroom. Best money I could have spent. If you find yourself in need of someone who will treat you like a million dollar client this is your guy.
