My experience with the law
I received a ticket for reckless driving in Prince William County. I con tasted Bristle Law and hired Mathew Davis to represent me in this case. I did not have a lot of faith that anything could be done to help my situation. However Mr. Davis seemed so positive that he could get the charge reduced which brightened my spirits. the day of my hearing he called me to let me know that not only was the charge reduced but theyn were dropped completely and all I had to do was take a driving test.

Ad Litem
Matthew Davis served as the court appointed ad litem for our grandchildren in a long and contentious custody case. His professionalism and compassion in representing our grandchildren was instrumental in resolving this very complicated and sensitive custody dispute. We were fortunate to have Mr. Davis appointed to our case because he was fair and unbiased and represented the children well. We highly recommend Mr. Davis.

Complicated DSS/CPS case
Mr. Davis represented my family in a very complicated and emotional CPS/custody case. Mr. Davis was not only an expert in the legalities but he has earned an excellent reputation with the Judges, caseworkers and other attorneys. His ability to work with the other parties as well as navigate the ubiquitous and harrowing issues was invaluable. Mr. Davis was determined to find and secure the best possible outcome for all involved. Mr. Davis is also kind, empathetic, and a man of undeniable integrity. He was generous with not only his time but also his compassion and kindness. Mr. Davis is an asset and exemplary member of his profession! I could not recommend Mr. Davis enough!

Traffic violation
Since I live out of town, Matt Davis and his office handled the case efficiently and explained Virginia law etc regarding this case. Especially during this pandemic - he and his staff handled everything as I could not even reach the court.

Traffic accident
I had a traffic accident inwhich I was cited for following too closely. My accident was a result of a or collateral to an accident ahead of me which I was unable to stop in time. Mr. Davis was able to plead my case and advocate for a dismisal of all charges and no points with the completion of a safety course.

My divorce case
I hired Mr Davis to represent me in my divorce case at a very difficult time of my life. From the very first day he listened and made me feel like a human being not a case. His advices were clear, precise and useful. Every exchange with him and his team was respectful and mindful. Thank to his gentle and professional approach, I was able to put my life back together by gradually sleeping better, eating better and getting my focus back on my carrier. Ultimately, he helped me find my freedom and I’ll be forever grateful to him for this. Thank you Mr Davis.

Traffic Violation Case
Matt was very clear about the specifics required and he was too patient. The way he talks gives you so much confidence that you would hire him. The price is very cheaper too compared to other law firms in Virgina. I highly recommend him in your future cases

Extremely Helpful
Mr. David was extremely helpful to me. I was in a situation were I felt completely out of control of my child’s life. Mr. Davis spent 40 minutes on the phone with me before I gave him a penny. Because of his advice I felt like I could handle what was happening. He was very knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions and concerns. I did not end up needing to hire him but If I ever have an issue again he will be the first person I call. Mr. Davis is compassionate and kind. Look no further. This guy is amazing.

Reckless Driving
Mr. Davis was great and walked me through the details and possible outcome on how he would present my case to the officer and prosecution attorney. Although I did not have an accident but used poor judgment in my decision making. I felt the officer was a bit harsh in the citation that I was given. During my hearing, Mr. Davis spoke to the prosecution attorney and office and we agreed to have my RD charge dismissed if I complete a driver's training online course.
