A Great Lawyer
I am from another state and had a wreck in Virginia. Mr. Gibson was able to get my charge of failure to maintain control of a vehicle almost immediately changed to a driving infraction and then dismissed completely. He was quick in responding to communications and clear in his explanation of our options, possible outcomes and main issues. Very thankful to have had him on my side in court.

A true gentleman: honest, truthful, kind, but tough on bad guys
Two years ago, our neighbors were trying to extort $12,000 from us with regards to a real estate transaction as well as spreading slander about our family. We were in a bind as our family attorney was tied up with a pressing obligation and so we were in need of a back up attorney. Because the shameful perpetrators had affiliations at some of Lexington's finest institutions, the other attorneys we consulted pushed us to settle with the neighbors. When we consulted with Mr. Gibson, he, without pause, stated that we should in no case allow ourselves to be manipulated by those miscreants, and courageously offered his assistance. After we informed the various real estate agents that we would not be enabling their clients, no further legal action was required. Big problem, easy solution. Thank you Mr. Gibson.

Reckless Driving Reduced!
Mr. Gibson represented me in court with a reckless driving charge (89/70). He got it reduced to a mere speeding offense. He was very easy to work with, responded to my emails and returned all my calls very promptly. This favorable outcome has saved me money in the long run; my fines were lowered because of the reduction in speed, my insurance would not increase significantly and most of all, the Reckless driving charge which is a criminal offense will not be in my record permanently. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and for choosing Kent to represent me!

Incredible Attorney
Kent made an effort to take care of my ticket from a multitude of angles. Being from an area about 200 hundred miles away from where I received the ticket, I was concerned with how all of this would be handled, but Kent made constant communication and designed an effective approach to getting my charges reduced!

I was in great hands!
Mr. Gibson represented me for a reckless ticket on I-81 (86/70) near Rockbridge County, Va. He was very assuring and talked me through everything that I needed to do to get a favorable outcome from the court. He communicated quickly and thoroughly with me if I had any questions. He was able to get the ticket reduced to a regular speeding ticket as long as I complete a driver improvement course and keep a clean record for 6 months. I was very satisfied with this outcome and with Mr. Gibson's work on my case. I would definitely recommend him!

Reckless Driving
Mr. Gibson was very helpful and patient, taking the time when I first consulted him to explain the ramifications of a reckless driving charge and the possible outcomes. He and his paralegal quickly came up with a plan and were very easy to get in touch with when questions arose. In the end, he was able to negotiate the ticket down to a simple speeding before the court date (even with my driving history) and I did not have to present to court. I would most definitely recommend his services to anyone in Virginia.

Excellent!!!
Mr. Gibson assistance with a Reckless Driving citation was top notch. His professionalism, knowledge and kindness was more than we could have hoped to have received. He was always willing to promptly answer our questions and never failed to respond to an email or phone call. He provided us with solid direction, with which we complied, and were awarded a favorable result. I highly recommend Mr. Gibson for anyone in need of an attorney's services. You will not be disappointed.

Reckless Driving Case
I hired Mr. Gibson for a reckless driving case. He represented my case with excellence. His advice and approach had charges against me amended. Mr. Gibson is very fast and responsive to phone calls and emails. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Gibson for your case.

Perfectly executed
Mr. Gibson took my case on and knew exactly what he was doing. The ticket I had said I was doing a 87 in a 70 and in Virginia that also means reckless driving which can have criminal implications. He was calm, collected and made me and my mom feel very comfortable and confident. He had the case thrown out minutes after he started talking to the judge, couldn't ask for more, I can't recommend him enough, Thanks again Mr. Gibson!

Excellent traffic attorney
He was well prepared and professional. I was nervous with my first ticket in 35 years as a CDL driver and he made me feel calm and confident. I was pleased with the outcome of my case. Highly recommended! Thank you Kent.

Knowledgeable, skilled, effective
I hired Kent to help me with a criminal speeding charge in Rockbridge County (86/70). We ended up getting the ticket reduced to straight speeding with a modest fine. He was terrific from the start. He understood the law and was a calm and reassuring voice. His local knowledge of the courts and prosecutors also helped a lot. I wholeheartedly recommend Kent.

Couldn't have been more impressed
Mr. Gibson was incredibly helpful in a recent traffic case in which he represented me--although the courts dropped the ball on several issues, he made it as easy as possible for me and kept this from adversely affecting my criminal record, driving record, and current work situation.

Fantastic Lawyer
When I first came into need of a lawyer, I was incredibly worried. My ticket was a huge mental burden and I was very stressed about the situation I was in and had no idea how I would handle it. After hiring Mr. Gibson, the burden slowly went away and is now pretty much gone. Not only was the process of handling my case seamless, organized, and easy, Mr. Gibson worked to get me a favorable result. He was very professional and handled my case very well. Once I put my case in the hands of my lawyer, the issue was resolved in the best possible way. All my questions were answered and I no longer had to worry once I hired Mr. Gibson to handle my case. I am very happy with the results and hope I never get into a situation where I'll need his services again but I do want to recommend him to anyone else that may.

Case solved
We leveraged Kent's services to assist in a reckless driving case for my son. Kent advised us on how best to prepare for the case and was able to adjust the court date to better fit our busy schedules. He and his office staff were always polite and organized. Kent's level-headed and calm demeanor were appreciated by us as well as the prosecutor, officer and judge. In the end, with Kent's counsel, we were able to reduce the reckless to speeding which was a win in our book. We would recommend Kent and would use him for future legal needs - although we hope we won't have any. 

Great Outcome
I interviewed a few attorneys in the area for a reckless driving ticket and Kent Gibson was by far the most professional and helpful. He was always available to talk to and handled my case in court in a professional manner. I am very pleased that Kent negotiated a very fair settlement. Highly recommend!

Very favorable results from speeding ticket
My daughter was pulled over on 81 south near Fincastle VA doing 86 in 60 and was facing charges of reckless driving and speeding. My daughter was terrified and this was an eye opener. Everyone recommended I hire an attorney. After reading reviews and doing research I selected Mr. Gibson to represent us. I can tell you that it was the best decision we could have made. Mr. Gibson was highly professional, competent, calm, and worked closely with my daughter and I through the process. Our case/trial outcome was extremely favorable because we did exactly what Mr. Gibson told us to do. It paid off. I highly recommend Mr. Gibson.
