Ms McDonald is awesome. I was in a very bad situation. Two felony charges and all the evidence was stacked against me. There was even actual recording of me sarcastically admitting to the incident. I lost my job, security clearance and was facing major time. 20 years major. She took the time to really look into the case and find all the underlying truth through all the deception. By the end of the day not only was I acquitted but she actually had the judge saying that the accuser may have needed help. Did I mention that the judge was a hard case. (No pun intended). This was after a mistake by myself which involved me not giving her evidence till 2 days before the trial. She literally put the whole case together in less than a day. Really I owe this lawyer my life as she got me the next 20 years of my life back. If she reads this I want to say thank her for giving me my life back and really inspired me. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

Keva was very professional and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire situation. I would recommend her to any and everyone.

Keva walked me through the entire process and kept me informed along the way. Her fees were very reasonable, she did not over promise or give me unrealistic expectations and she was able to deliver the desired outcome.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I worked with Keva in the Virginia Beach Public Defender's Office. She has over a decade of experience handling high stakes criminal cases in both state and federal courts. She is a fierce, intelligent, and creative advocate. She has my strong endorsement.

Relationship: Supervised lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. Keva was an law clerk while I was with the Alexandria Public Defender. My first impressions were that she was poised, extremely intelligent, dedicated and unusually passionate about the cause of the defense. That first impression has become a lasting one. As an attorney, Keva has earned a reputation in the defense community for creativity, hard work, commitment to her clients, and overall, results. I recommend her highly.
