What Our Clients Are Saying
“I was represented by Atty. Ben Griffits for a case in Manassas. In my initial interview, I was very pleased with his responses to my questions and concerns. He seemed to be very knowledgeable about the County Court system, various ‘personalities’ of the judges and prosecutors, and the process we would need to go through for my case. I was also very satisfied with his negotiations on my behalf, and with the outcome of the case. Ben’s encouragement and understanding throughout the process were much appreciated and I would definitely consult with him – or any of the Attorneys at the firm, on any other legal matter that I would have.” – Tom B.
“Mr. Oliver is an excellent attorney who is very knowledgeable. He gave us pertinent information, kept us informed and did not sugar-coat the situation, gave the good and the bad. In the end, it was all good. I highly recommend Mr. Oliver and if I need an attorney again, which I hope I don’t, but if I do, I would hire him again.” – Elizabeth
