They're great! Brian Dunnigan got my offense down from reckless driving with the possibility of jail, taking points off my license, and retaking driving school, to improper driving where I only had to pay a $200 fine and court costs. They were super helpful with all my questions, and were very professional and friendly.

Absolutely thankful for Mr. Dunnigan. Great service, can’t thank him enough for what he did for me

I can't thank him and his staff enough. I would highly recommend him as your Lawyer. Very kind and professional at the same time.

I was facing Bogus charges against me. And Without Mr.Brian Dunnigan,,,My Charges and Case Would Not Have Been Dismissed I Am Truly Thankful For Him And For A Very Kind Staff...My Name Curtis Turner Thank You All For The Kindness And Loyalty For Me God Bless...5 Stars From Me Definitely

Very professional and well organized. The office made sure I knew of any changes made to my court date and let me know well in advance what documentation would be needed for my hearing. Throughout the process I got constant reminders of what I needed to do. Mr. Dunnigan was a great help in court, and spiritual. I am very pleased with their services.

My experience with Mr. Short was good. He communicated well with me even before retaining him. He was straight forward and real. I hired him in a criminal matter for a family member, in which he took over the case after we were not pleased with the public defender. We got the best possible outcome of the case and were very pleased with his representation.

I highly recommend Mr. Short for all your legal matters. His expertise, thoroughness, and attention to detail distinguishes his practice from other firms. I also appreciated his support and ease of accessibility throughout my legal needs. His assistant, Ms. Reel, complements the overall experience with quick communication, follow-thru, and a kind and reassuring demeanor. If I could award more than five stars, I would!!!

If your legal matter can be handled by Mr. Short look no further. Mr. Short and Mrs. Reel are the absolute best!!! They truly care about you and will help you any way possible. From start to finish on the two occasions my family needed legal help they were spot on both times. I could go on and on but the bottom line is you can’t go wrong with their legal expertise.

Very grateful of Mr. Short and his assistant Karen for everything they have done for me in my situation. Getting in trouble with the law was new to me, and he gave clear answers to all my questions and current situation. His explanation that this is only going to be a small fraction of my life, like "a small piece from a whole pie" is something that's always going to stick with me. I highly recommend him, and looking forward to making better life choices the rest of my future.

Mr. Short and Miss Reel work superbly together. They are both expeditious in response to any questions and/or concerns I had with my case. Even with the unusual circumstances concerning said case, they were more than informative and exceptionally prepared throughout the entirety of my ordeal. This was very comforting considering my case was literally focused on thē most important and precious thing in my life. My now 10 year old daughter Lorelei. We now continue to live happily ever after together until she moves on with her own life, once fully prepared. I very much recommend Mr. Short in reference to any legal matter that he specializes in, or any other matter he would be willing to take on for you. God Bless!

Mark was able to see me and expedite the process for my case. He is very knowledgeable and personable. Awesome staff who kept me up to date with what was going on with my case and definitely fought for me. He was able to get charge reduced and will now represent me on any other cases I may need as they are a full service law firm! 5 ⭐️!

Mark is the best defense attorney the Hampton Roads area has to offer. If you need something done the right way, then you know who to call. He was able to get my case dismissed with ease, and for that my wife and I couldn't be more grateful. I highly recommend anyone to hire Mark Andrews for their legal issues.

I want to start off by saying Mr.Andrews was a life saver for me and my family. I was involved in a accident where I was hit by a drunk driver. I suffered serious injuries from the accident and from day 1 Mr.Andrews was always making sure I was getting the best care I could get. This was my first time dealing with something of this nature, and he was always a phone call away when my family or myself had any questions. When it came to his performance when it came to dealing with the insurance companies he did a impeccable job also. I’d recommend him to anyone who wants a attorney who has your best interest in mind. Thank you Mr.Andrews for all you did for my family. I hope I or anyone has to ever go through this, but if they do, I know they’ll be in the best of hands.

Mark Andrews is truly the greatest lawyer. I am so thankful for everything he worked out in my case. Hiring him for my case was truly one of the best decision with the best possible outcome. He got my felony charge dismissed without me having to go to court on it. DUI charge reduced to reckless driving with only having to pay a small fine. He really worked out a miracle for me and I will always be so grateful for what he has done. He was always available to talk when I had any questions. He is really a superb lawyer and I would always hire him if I’m ever in need.

Mr. Andrews represented me in a speeding case. My main worry was points on my driving record and insurance increase. Mr. Andrews’ understanding of my concerns not only put me at ease but he was also able to get my ticket totally dismissed. I highly recommend Mark Andrews. He is an amazing and very knowledgeable attorney.
