Client Reviews

Very excellent firm, I would definitely recommend their services to ANYONE looking to hire great representation in the Northern Virginia area. My son was charged with felony robbery and mob assault, which is now simple assault. This was my first time hiring an attorney and I have No regrets. If you are looking for excellent representation here you are.

- Herbo T.

A quick background about myself. I am 22 and I had a “driving while revoked/suspended misdemeanor 1st offense” I initially made around 10-15 consultation calls with different lawyers. Upon explaining my case and hearing their approach on how they would be able to support me and tackle the case; I decided to go with Mr.lee. He was by far the lawyer with the best response and honest prediction of my case. One of the things I liked the most about him was the fact that he asked me this question: -what is the most important factor that you worry about? Is it jail time? Is it high fines? Is it having a criminal record? i remember him saying “I want to do what’s in your best interest and try to achieve the goal that matters the most to you. Whether that’s avoiding jail time, paying thousands in fines or having a criminal record” The case ended up getting being “Nole prosequi” - basically dismissed. I wanted to write this review to help any person In their decision of hiring an attorney. Mr. lee was not only extremely approachable, but also a very patient and understanding individual who truly seeks the best outcome for your case. I had not previously known or heard about him, but I’m glad I stumbled upon him. Lastly, if you ever read this, I wasn’t to thank you for everything Mr. lee. I hope not to get into anymore trouble, but I sure will call you if ever do!
- Gustavo E.

Highly recommend!!! Mr. Lee, he is the best lawyer ever. He helped me get through the hardest time in my life. He is a very patient, professional and smart person. No jail time is the most desirable result and Bret Lee made it happened. The best lawyers and the best team. I am lucky that I chose Robinson firm. Thank you Mr.Lee you did an amazing job that had changed my life. I appreciated everything you have done.Thank you!
- Lingge S.

Mr. Griffitts has been great throughout my case. He is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and he always has his clients' best interest in mind. His fees are quite affordable and he's very easy to contact. He responded on weekends, early mornings, late nights. To know your attorney is truly there for you is something you can't quantify. Add to that he knows the law. I will continue to use Mr. Griffitts as my lawyer if need be in the future, I am grateful for his help and would recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation. He helped me understand the case and kept me in the loop the entire time. Anytime I had a question about the case he was more than willing to answer it. Thank you!!
- Daniel S.

I just want to thank Mr. Andrew Criado. For all his hard work. His an Excellent Attorney. He study the case and came up with an outstanding game plan. His experience with being a former Prosecutor help out a lot. I was charge with DUI and refusal. But he fought and brought it down to just: An improper driving. Wow!! I cant thank you enough. I would definitely recommend you. Thank you again.
- Arturo S.

I am not sure how to express my gratitude towards Mr.Criado, but other than to say thank you so much! He made me feel like someone was in my corner backing me up every step of the way. He showed his confidence and had great composure. And most importantly he came prepared. He has taken the time to find information that would help me, and it did! He truly impressed me and not only was it a stressful situation but we won! I wouldn’t have asked for a better lawyer. You can truly see that he lives what he does and just wants to help people in need! Thank you so much for everything! Keep up the great work!
- Sofia T.

Would love to thank Robinson law firm for the great lawyers they have. Had a great experience with Robinson law, they were very professional in a fraud case they represented me in. I was facing serious jail time in which he got me 2yrs of probation. And he also made me feel comfortable through the whole process. Would recommend him in any type of case big or small. They are simply the best.
- Franklin G.

Benjamin helped me out big time with my case very good lawyer, really responsive and helpful. I was arrested for DWI, eluding and reckless driving. Because of Benjamin I got both the eluding charge and reckless driving charges dropped and for that I am extremely thankful. I very much recommend Benjamin if you happen to be in a scruff with the law. I'm very thankful to not be a felon.
- Isaiah T.

Mr. Criado at Robinson Law negotiated a deal for my legal case that exceeded my expectations. Throughout the process he was professional, insightful, and timely. His counsel during our first conference took me out of the initial doom of my circumstances. I cannot recommend Mr. Criado's legal representation enough.
- Michael

My experience with Robinson Law crew is nothing less than perfect.I first had a phone call with Susana, she was very professional and informative. Then my case was handled by Andrew, who was very professional and neat. Based on his advice my case was dismissed. Susana & Andrew were exceptionally professional and I'll definitely recommend them for others. Thanks, Robinson Law!
- Haytham K.

Not only did Mr lee reduce my charges, he also went beyond and filed a motion to the judge and obtained permission for me to travel. He was available whenever I had questions leading up to my case and always had a game plan. I am very satisfied with what he did for me.
- Marjan B.

I was in need of an attorney to file some paperwork within hours and upon calling Robinson Law they immediately got on it. Ben Griffitts and Andrew Criado both were a pleasure to work with, answered all of our questions, had reasonable fees, and represented my family member in court very well. I will not hesitate to hire Robinson Law if ever I need them again. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great, caring attorney.
- Christine W.

I don't ever write reviews. This might honestly be my first. But, Andrew Criado deserves a good word. He is a stand up guy and a truly impressive lawyer. I highly recommend his services.
- Chris W.

Mr. Lee is an excellent attorney! Very easy to contact and work with. Also, very realistic but makes you feel at ease about your legal situation. I would hire Robinson Law 10 times out of 10 just because of Mr. Lee.
- Jake C.

Mr. Criado truly knowledgeable and helped me with my case. Kept me well informed of what was to be expected and going on. He was professional and always early to discuss details in advance. Highly recommended.
- Winston J.

This is the best law firm in this region. The law firm includes the best and most experienced attorneys. They are the absolute best!
- Marwan

Robinson Law, PLLC represented our son in a reckless driving violation (88 on a 55mph ) he sure made us feel at ease and after giving us great advise on what to do before going to trial he was able to dismiss it from our 17yo record. Definitely recommend.
- Ruben V.

Ben Griffitts is the best. From the first phone call I made to Robinson Law and was connected with him, to the final disposition of my case, he was helpful through and through. He spent a lot of time giving me a free consultation and explaining his thought process to me, allowing me to understand exactly where his mind was at to determine if we were a good fit, and if he had a good thorough understanding of the portion of law that was relevant to my case. I appreciated that he always got back in touch with me and helped guide and leverage my expectations without ever leading me blindly down a path, and keeping my feet planted on the ground with the results I expected and what I could expect come my day in court. We were able to navigate through to a resolution that while my not have been the perfect world situation, was a situation I could live with, given the circumstances surrounding the case that were out of the hands of either of us. All in all, for this being my 2nd experience dealing with an attorney, I would highly recommend Ben, and was extremely satisfied with how he handled things during this difficult time.
- Matthew B.

Robinson law had my back the whole time, I was looking at a felony distribution case, they got me a misdemeanor with no probation, just call them, they'll take care of you. If I didn't go to jail neither should you, let them get you out of there!
- Brandon B.

Robinson Law was the perfect choice for handling my expungement. Ben Griffitts was exceptionally professional in handling my case and I will definitely be recommending them to others, as well as keeping them in mind for any future cases as well. Thank you, Robinson Law!
- Diana Z.

Mr. Criado represented me during a very difficult time in life. He was professional, knowledgeable and his advice assisted me in being successful in my case. Robinson Law, LLC was recommended to me by a friend and I will definitely recommend them and especially Mr. Criado to anyone I know.
- Marisol B.

In February of 2018 i was arrested in VA and charged with possession and distribution of a manufactured drug. This was my first offense so I thought it would not be too much of an issue but coming from MD entering VA it was! Long story short i provided my job info, character letters and bought a ton of people to court with me (this is important). I was blessed to have one of the best judges to have and after everyone pleaded their cases for me and Mr. Lee letting them know that I do not deserve jail time on my first offense, it took a ton of convincing but the judge decided to honor Mr. Lee’s request of probation. Another thing I will say is Mr.Lee is receptive of any suggestions you make.
- Kevin D.

Working with Robinson Law, was a great experience, they are polite, diligent and always had my back. Thank you, y'all.
- Malik A.

I wish to take a moment to highly recommend Robinson Law and specifically, my lawyer Andrew Criado. Mr. Criado was attentive, compassionate and available. His experience as a former prosecutor, his experience with other jurists, his extensive cross-jurisdictional knowledge and honesty has provided me with a fresh start with two traffic court dismissals. I look forward to recommending him and R.L. to friends and associates.
- Quan L.

Just wanted to thank Mr. Lee for his assistance again with the ASAP violations today. Definitely worth every penny spent on attorney fees!!
- Miss P.

When my brother got arrested without bond, I didn’t know where to start looking for a lawyer so like most people I goggled lawyers in Fairfax, VA. because the nature of his charges was very serious and I wanted a lawyer that specifically knew both Virginia laws and those that were applicable in Fairfax County. I found Bret Lee and was very impressed with his background and the reviews former clients had posted about him. While at my brothers first bond hearing at which time he was being represented by a public defender, I saw Mr. Lee in action while defending another one of his clients and knew right then and there that I wanted to hire him to take on my brother case. Prior to taking the case, Mr. Lee went and met with my brother two times at the jail and also met with me and my family. After getting the facts of the case we agreed on a retainer and I signed the contract. I didn’t have all the money up front and Mr. Lee allowed me to sign an agreement in which I made a down payment and then paid the remainder of the retainer in monthly installments over a 3-month period. During the discover phase he obtained all the relevant evidence from the state which was needed in order for my brother to decide if he should take a plea deal or go to trial. Based on the evidence it was in my brother’s best interest to take a plea. Prior to taking the plea my brother was facing a maximum of 35 years in prison if found guilty on all charges. After Mr. Lee negotiated with the prosecutor and had several charges dropped this time was then reduced to where my brother would only be a facing a maximum of 15-years in prison during sentencing. Mr. Bret Lee presented the judge with compelling evidence on why my brother should be sentenced to the least amount of time allowed by law and as a result my brother was sentenced to 14 months of which he only had to serve1 year and 1 day in jail. As it was getting close to the time that my brother was supposed to be released, VA DOC didn’t have a release date for my brother so I contacted Mr. Lee. Although my brother had been sentenced and the case was over Mr. Lee got in contact with VA DOC and discovered there was paperwork missing and that was why my brother didn’t have a release date. Mr. Lee worked with VA DOC and my brother got his release date 5 days later. As part of the retainer Mr. Lee appeared in court over 10 times for different proceedings related to my brother case. He went up to the jail several times to meet with my brother regarding his case and he even met with me and my family in the evenings and on Saturdays because we worked and those times were convenient for me and my family. In addition, any time I called or emailed him with questions about my brothers’ case he responded promptly. To sum it all up I am truly thankful for Mr. Lee because my bother ended up serving only 1 year when he was faced with serving 35 years. Without Mr. Lee expertise on my brother case I really believe that my brother would have been sentenced to more time. If you are facing serious charges in Virginia especially Fairfax County, I recommend that you hire Mr. Bret Lee because no matter what the circumstances are surrounding your case, I guarantee he will not disappoint.

Ben Griffiths did an excellent job for us! He went above and beyond for our family after a devastating event. As an attorney he values your thoughts and has a way of making them know in the legal system! You will be defended and treated with the utmost respect! Me Griffiths values families regardless of your socioeconomic status and was available to me and our family 24/7 he even answered phone calls during the weekend and after hours when we needed him! I wouldn’t think twice about recommending him to anyone! He’s not afraid to stand up to prosecutors for you! Straightforward and clear with his clients of what’s expected! Def a great guy to have on your team!
- Niec J.

Robinson Law were able to drop my reckless to a simple speeding and saved me from getting my license suspended all around great guy and a very understanding person definitely will use Robinson law for the future. Thanks to the whole for hiring him.
- Daniel E.

Fantastic experience. Attention to detail is top notch.
- Coden M.

Great work, great team. They will do whatever it may take to get your charge dismissed. I highly recommend them
- Khan C.

In regards to my defense: I had received a "general reckless driving" and "obstruction of justice charge". These cases were very stressful for me, largely because I felt as if I did nothing wrong. We went up to trial where they fought for me and got both cases dismissed. I'm really thankful for how hard they worked. Once again thanks a bunch!
- Marcus T.

Sent on behalf of F Whitlock: When I think of Attorney Griffitts, I think of the three Ps: Patient, Proficient and Professional. He’s patient. When I get met Mr Griffitts, I was at an all time low. I was facing some serious charges. My stress level was high and I was feeling discombobulated. I was annoyed and irritated at myself and I did not understand what my options were. He was there for me as if he truly understood my pain. He’s Proficient. Upon our initial meeting, he informed me that he had done research on a newly establish initiative to assist Veterans and thought I’d be a good candidate. He explained to me what the Veterans Docket was and when I had questions, he had answers. He had done his home work and I felt I had a chance at restarting my life, thanks to the expertise of attorney Griffitts. He’s professional. He served as a liaison when I needed it. He was always there, if I called with questions, he returned my call with answers. Benjamin Griffitts is a top notch individual and thanks to him, I’m getting another chance at getting my life back together. Thank you
- Carlas H.

I can't thank Bret enough for all he's done. He's a great asset to have on your side. Should I need him again I will know who to call. Thank you again for all your hard work. He is well respected.
- Brittani G.

Ben Griffitts did an amazing job! He got an extensive history of my son’s situation with his reckless driving and made us feel so comfortable on the day of court. He was able to get the sentence reduced from reckless driving to improper driving.

Brett Lee of Robinson Law PLLC represented my significant other in a Prince William County DWI case in 2018. She was documented with a BAC of 0.26 when arrested. Her BAC level mandates a minimum of 10 days in jail - even for a first offense. Brett worked with her from the time of her arrest in July through multiple continuances until the final plea agreement in January 2019. He was responsive, direct, and professional. He helped her understand the gravity of the charges, the potential outcomes and the best options available to her. My significant other has a medical condition that would only be exacerbated by jail time and more than likely lead to negative outcomes. Bret's ability to provide a strong legal defense along with helping my significant other produce character references helped convince the prosecutor to recommend a reduction in BAC with no jail time, a suspended license and VASAP. As a result of Bret's approach, diligence, and professionalism, my significant other is safe, alcohol free and beginning to reclaim her life from a devastating mental illness.
