Outstanding team
I couldn't be more pleased with the work that was done by this entire team! They always kept me informed and told me everything to do to help my case. A very stressful time was made a great deal better by these guys! Praying i never need them again, but if i do it will definitely be them again.

Very professional and calming!
Being I went to court I was full of anxiety and just wanted it to be over. Working and meeting with Mr. Matney put me at ease immediately and I am so happy he was there to talk with the officer and judge on my behalf. I had a reckless ticket brought down tremendously. Thank you again!

Great attorney
Mr. Matney and his office were a great help. I was aware of everything with my case and wasn’t blind sided with anything. I was given his number by a friend who went through the same situation I did and i was grateful she gave me his information. I loved how Mr.Matney prayed with me i was totally shocked when he asked if he could. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone in need.

Friendly and professional
I was most impressed with Mr. Matney offering to pray with me (after I shared I would be doing some on my own). He spoke with the officer before my court appearance for reckless speeding. He determined early on that the radar's calibration was expired, and was able to get the case dismissed. However, we spoke on the phone and met in person to prepare me to testify. He provided me with advice on how to best prepare for court. He and his staff also helped me file a continuance from the original date given from the officer because I could not get off of work that day. I would contact him again (though I hope not to have to) to represent me.

Great Attorney!
Mr. Matney went above and beyond for my son's first DUI. His knowledge of the DUI law is impeccable to say the least.

Outstanding Outcome Achieved
I contacted Mr. Matney based on reviews online, specifically AVVO, which is specific to legal representation. My son had been arrested for underage possession of alcohol and basically DUI, all coming off a stop for a headlight being out. In the state of VA any BAC above 0 is enough. While it is good that he learn a lesson from this I didn't want it ti ruin his life. Mr. Matney represented him professionally, with courtesy, consideration, and respect and was able to dismiss all but 1 charge. A restricted license and 50 hours of community service was the result and as good as anyone could have achieved. We are relieved and very pleased with the result. While I hope to never have to meet Mr. Matney professionally again, I certainly will if need be.

CASAUNDRA
I WAS SATISFIED WITH THE OUTCOME OF THE FIRST CASE BUT THE ISSUE WITH THE SECOND CASE WAS DISAPPOINTING DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY SWITCHED ATTY ON ME WITHOUT NOTICE AND THE SECOND LAWYER WAS LESS QUALIFIED WHICH IN TURN COST ME ANOTHER FEE FOR HIGHER COURT. I THINK THAT IF THEY DONT SEND INEXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS TO TRY TO FILL THE GAP WHEN THEY ARE OVER BOOKED WOULD HELP. AS FOR LATER COURT DATES IF POSSIBLE.
Response from Matney Law PLLC
I am so glad that you took the time to help us by expressing your concerns. In your first case, following too closely with an accident, the judge dismissed the case at the first hearing. In your second case, the judge dismissed the charge of failure to obey a highway sign. It is true that the second case was appealed to the circuit court before it was dismissed. In traffic infraction cases, there is not a lesser charge so the judge must either dismiss or find the defendant guilty. You may recall that the deciding factor at the first hearing was the substitute judge refusing to amend the charge to defective equipment, not a lack of advocacy on the part of an attorney who has been practicing for several years and who regularly appears in that court. It is also true that you were charged an additional fee for the Circuit Court appeal that accomplished the dismissal, but we waived all but $150. Since the officers usually have only one court date per month, there are times when the courts schedule us for conflicting locations.

Very Professional
I went to Mark Matney because I googled the “best traffic attorney in Hampton Roads” Mark and his team came up as 5 stars. I was given a reckless on Fort Eustis and wrongfully charged by the base MP. I gave Mark and his team all the details and witnesses and it was dismissed by the judge. I highly recommend Matney law for any traffic violations, in the challenging traffic world that leans on the side of guilty, Mark and his team are there to listen and help. Highly recommended 👍

Outstanding Legal Representation
Was facing wreckless driving/ speeding charge. 57 in a 35 mph work zone. Followed the advice of Mr. Matney and his professional staff. Also had a excellent DMV record going back 29 yrs. We went to court and BOOM! Thanks to Mr Matney.....The judge dismissed the charge. No misdemeanor and no fines! Thank You Mr Matney! Thank You!

Great Attorney who provides high quality service
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Matney represent me for a reckless driving charge. He was very thourough with making sure he had as much information as possible to represent me properly. He was kind and made me feel comfortable the day of court. I was able to have my case dismissed thanks to him. Would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
