Client Reviews

Title: She Was Extremely Professional In Court

One of my friends told me about the firm after being a former client. After speaking with Ms. Porter, I felt confident. She was extremely professional in court. She seemed like she knew the judges, prosecutors, and how the case should be handled. She did everything one could expect for my case. I would recommend Karin to anyone facing a criminal defense matter in Virginia. I would tell them to follow her advice without thinking!
