Review John Rice
  • Great lawyer, great guy

    I needed some help from out of state (CA) and found John on google. After speaking with a few lawyers from Newport News, the choice was clear...John was the most knowledgable and he was reasonably priced. After John took a lot of time with me, to get the details of my case, he took care of my arraignment so that I didn't have to travel back to CA for that part.

    Between arraignment and trial he worked hard to get the arresting officer and/or states attorney to dismiss the case; the arresting officer was making him self scarce, so this was proving to be difficult. The day before the trial he managed to track down the arresting officer, and John got the officer to agree to a charge of "nolle prosequi", which is essentially a dismissal. Sure enough, the next day in court, John and the arresting officer met with the states attorney and I walked away a free man with no fines or court fees!

    After my brief trial, John and I sat around and chatted for about a half hour. Overall, I had great experience, both working with John and getting to know him. Newport News will lose a great defense attorney when John retires.

  • John Rice makes you feel like you are his only client

    Our 18 year old son was leaving a party with a group of friends and one of them made a pit stop to relieve himself behind a bush. Unfortunately there were Newport News police behind said bush and everyone in the group was charged with public urination. Thorough research gave us the confidence that Mr. Rice was the best of the best in Newport News. We knew we'd found a talented, capable attorney. What we did not anticipate, however, was the profound impact Mr. Rice would have on our child's life. This very busy attorney made our son feel like he was his only client. He spent hours talking to him about life, priorities, choices, and a host of other things that were beyond the scope of the case. After these discussions we saw a marked change in our son's performance at CNU. His grades improved, he became far more serious about his studies, and he began to make choices that led to a more balanced life. The leftover senioritis is gone and we now have a focused, motivated man instead of a socially successful academic slacker. I never thought I would look upon a public urination charge as a good thing in my child's life, but since it was what connected our son to the influence of John Rice, I can actually say I'm glad it happened just as it did. If Mr. Rice ever tires of his day job, he has another successful career waiting for him on the college lecture circuit motivating 18 year olds.

    Received a reckless driving ticket for 89/55 coupled with a radar detector ticket (device was not in use, but in the vehicle on the floor of the passenger side). I needed help and found John on Google. I tried him out and was happy I did. John really knows his stuff, gave me a list of things to get him or get done before the court date and on the day of my hearing, the result was CASE DISMISSED. Not even reduced to speeding...completely dismissed, no points, no fines, no court fees, nothing. Couldn't have been happier with the result. I hop e in the future i will never need to use Jonh again, but if I do, there is no other attorney i would look to. John's the man :)

    My son received a reckless driving ticket for speed of 28 mph over the limit. Mr. Rice clearly informed us of the possible serious outcomes that could result. He was very clear about how he would handle the case and kept us informed during the entire process. He was extremely knowledgeable of the law. He was able to have the ticket reduced to a simple speeding ticket. I would recommend Mr. Rice to anyone in need of a lawyer.

    I am new to Virginia and received a speedy ticket excess of 80 mph which is considered reckless driver in the state. With Mr. Rice’s guidance and experiences, the violation was reduced with no points to my record. I would highly recommend Mr. Rice to anyone in need of legal assistance in the Newport New.

    Used Mr. Rice this year to represent a family member in two separate DUI Cases in two different cities. I was pleased with his knowledge of the law, being very current on the latest updates, approach and handling of both cases, especially at a time when you are so stressed, the court rooms stess you even more and the laws can be so confusing. Good to work with someone you feel you can trust and cares.
