Awesome Lawyer and Great guy

In short Mr. Clarke went above and beyond to make sure my case was reviewed properly. Very determined and persistent to validate my Name and have my belongings returned.

5 Star Attorney

By Joseph

Mr Clarke represented me for two cases. Both were null processed. I found Mr Clarke to be very approachable, knowledgeable, and prepared. I was confident in his ability to defend me, as he took the time to familiarize himself with my case. He also listened to any questions that I had. I especially appreciated his calming demeanor, it made me feel at ease in court.

Excellent experience!


If you want a fast, effective resolution, call Mr.Clarke! From initiation to completion, working with Mr. Clarke was easy and efficient. I really appreciated the quick turnaround of documents and steady communication. If the need arises, I will hire him again in the future, and I’ve even recommmended him to my mother! Give Mr. Clarke a call; you won’t regret it!

Thankful for Andrew Clarke

Mr. Clarke was retained to defend my son in a criminal case. My son was charged with reckless driving for speeding in the state of Virginia, really VA!? I will keep my comments to myself. Mr. Clarke’s services extended well beyond our financial obligation. He invested himself on a professional and personal level. We are forever grateful and appreciate him immensely.

I honestly couldn’t have asked for an better attorney! He listened and understood my situation! I was most definitely facing jail time and a very hefty fine! He was firm and very determined not to let that happen! Long story short I left out of that court building with a small fine and NO jail time! He’s the absolute best!
