Jennifer Leffler is an exceptional Lawyer. The best Lawyer in Northern Virginia! Let me Start by saying Jennifer WON another case. I had an arrest last year for a DUI. A friend of mine, who had won a case with Jennifer recommended her. I would absolutely recommend Jennifer to any person who may find themselves in a legal situation.
Jennifer Leffler is one of the best attorneys I have been represented by personally. She represented me in a protective order hearing in which false allegations were accused against me. I felt very overwhelmed about my case because I felt in the wrong before it had started but she came into court aggressive and prepared. In which she ended up dismissing both cases filed against me. 10/10 law firm.
From the first consultation all the way through my case's closing, Ms. Leffler's legal advice was sound and wholly helpful; she was available, smart and straightforward... [and] resulted in an overall very favorable outcome for me that makes me fully confident in recommending her to those in need of an attorney.
I was facing four serious felony charges in Fairfax County. Mr. Phillips expertise, guidance, and counsel assisted me in obtaining a very favorable outcome. Mr. Phillips was always prepared, organized, and so easy to contact. He helped me understand the court process and literally helped keep me sane through the entire process.
I recently had a civil issue which could have jeopardized my job and livelihood. Needless to say, I needed great legal representation to protect myself and family. As a result of Jonathan Phillips efforts, the verdict turned out in my favor and I was able to put this horrific incident behind me.
