10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Mr. Sarfan was the best lawyer I've ever had! He always had my best interest. With all of his hard work he was able to get a non moving DUI brought down to a reckless driving ticket. Having a DUI on my record would have made my life extremely hard. But thanks to Mr. Sarfan I was able to walk out of the court room DUI free! 10/10 high recommended!

Review
Mr. sarfan was recommended by a lawyer friend for my sons case. He got the charges substantially reduced on a technicality. My son will still have consequences from his actions but he will learn from his mistake without having his life ruined.

Amazing !!!
Attorney Edward is the BEST !! He was able to get my DUI & refusal dropped down to just a reckless driving. Instead of 12 months restricted license I was only giving 6 months. I would recommend him to anyone without any hesitation.

Excellent!!!
I am extremely pleased with the results from Ed! He handled everything very professionally and answered any questions I had. He kept me informed on everything about my case and let me know what to possibly expect. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DUI lawyer.

Best choice ever!
I got a wreckless driving ticket and instead received improper driving as well as driving on a suspended license I got found not guilty and only paid court fees. I am blessed to have had him as my lawyer and would recommend him 200%. Things could have ended not so well for me and he made it possible to stay free.

Representation of Plaintiff/Protective Order
Mr. Sarfan came highly recommended by another attorney. He was very professional, compassionate and inquisitive. He met with my husband and I for an initial consultation and twice in court (first hearing was a no show by the defendant). Prior to entering the court proceeding, Mr. Sarfan reviewed facts and any updates with us and was very clear on what to expect/not expect during the hearing. The goal of securing a protective order was reached as well as additional restrictions.

A seasoned professional who does his research
I was charged with a dui, I cannot believe the work that he did for my case. He was sincere and honest throughout the entire process. I am extremely grateful for his guidance and I hope that he will continue to help others.

Mrs.
Mr. Sarfan represented me in a speeding on federal property case which required me to appear in federal court. He was very professional and honest throughout the process. I was extremely nervous about the case and he kept me informed of his actions on my behalf. On the day of court, Mr. Sarfan briefed me on everything I could expect to happen so there were no surprises. He did a fantastic job for me; I would recommend him to anyone needing his services.

The person to have on your side
Edward Sarfan helped me restore my gun rights, going through the proper procedures that allowed a decision to be made by court fair and unbiased.

Sound strategy superbly executed! The judges like him too.
Mr. Sarfan handled my reckless driving charge like a true legal veteran. It was obvious his reputation in the legal community and pleasant demeanor had gained him (and me, in hiring him) the favor of the judge and the witnessing police officer. He prepared me well to have ready the certificates and records that would support a request for a reduction in the charge. Of the three reckless driving cases the judge heard in that session, I received the most favorable reduction to speeding at only 14 miles over. Underpinning all he performed for me legally--he took time to get to know me and make a genuine personal connection. Hire this man!

Thorough work and knows all the contacts necessary for proper handling of your case!
Ed took on my DUI case the middle of last year and pursued all avenues of defense and evidence related to it. He went the extra mile to ensuring it was handled properly and all items were in order and present for the best chance at resolution. He is familiar with all the necessary people in the Hampton court system that allowed flexibility in the scheduling date for my witnesses as well. He did an excellent job overall and I would recommend him to anyone I know for any case in his disciplines. Though his work, the city wanted to reduce my charges to a lesser charge and that was accepted. Could not have asked him to do anymore. Thanks Ed!

Dui
He did an incredible job on my dui having it reduced to a drunk in public with a $25 fine. Also, the refusal was thrown out.
