I just wanted to take the time to review my lawyer, Virginia. She was very very helpful. Not only did she accomplish what we set out to do, she exceeded my expectations. She did it in a timely manner and it actually cost less than originally planned. I would use her services again no question and would recommend her to anyone needing legal help.

She is a awesome attorney. I had two cases and one was reduced way down and the other she proved me not guilty. I would not of wanted any other lawyer on my corner. Best money I ever spent!

While out of state for a job, I got into some trouble. Despite the computer systems in the jail I was taken to being down and the officer spelling my name wrong in the system, Virginia found me and found a way to get me a message so I could call her to explain the situation. With all odds seeming to be against me, she bailed me out, clearly and patiently she explained all the papers I needed to have and whom they needed to be signed by so I could fly back home ASAP instead of being stuck in a state I didn't belong. Instead of having to fly back and forth for multiple court dates, Virginia made it so I only needed to go back twice. She was patient, direct, informative and always responded to my emails and calls quickly. I highly recommend her.

Virginia is an outstanding lawyer and valued member of the legal community. She's always willing to help others, whether in the field or with her legal expertise. Her clients love her because she knows how to get results. I've worked with her as a former prosecutor and now as counsel on the same side and she's always impressed me as patient, likable and very intelligent. Those are great qualities to have in an attorney and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
