Choosing the right attorney is one of the most important decisions you will make

You need someone who will listen to your concerns, devote the attention your case deserves, and help you to achieve the best outcome possible. You need someone with the intelligence, experience, and creativity necessary to navigate your way through the obstacles standing between you and your goals.

I can’t speak highly enough of Mr. Zinicola. He has been my attorney for a few cases, across many years, I have recommended him many times, and he has always produced amazing results. If you need an attorney that knows the law and is actually willing to use it to defend you, this is your guy. I’ve never seen him treat a case as routine. He’s a 9th degree black belt in jurisprudent jujutsu. Hands down the best in VA

[Mrs. Hart’s] team was very professional and kept me well updated throughout. And we received the outcome we had been hoping for. Highly recommend.

Patrick Blanch helped me with two legal matters and without question having him represent me was the best decision I could make. He was easy to talk to and made everything very clear. You can count on him to be honest, trustworthy and on your side. It was clear that Patrick Blanch is an expert on the law and if you need a lawyer I hope you can get him.

Recommend Ms. Hart without reservation. Very effective in negotiation of contracts and exceedingly detail oriented. Easy to reach and polished in her skills.

Courtney H.

Real, trustworthy, and straight to the point. Not at all what I would have normally expected

Jeff Overand is an outstanding criminal defense attorney. I send clients to him when they have a truly difficult case and they need the best. If you want an attorney that knows how to win, will work his heart out for you, and will always tell it to you straight, there is nobody better than Jeff Overand

I would recommend him to anyone I know and I often do to all my clients.

Excellent experience with this office and notably Ms. Hart. She has negotiated several contracts on my behalf and protected my interests.  She was available after hours when I received a threatening email from a prior vendor. I have the utmost confidence in her skills and even though I have avoided litigation due to her expertise, I am sure she is quite impressive int he courtroom.

I called them for help with a speeding ticket. After speaking with a receptionist I was quickly passed on to one of the attorneys who listened to the details of my ticket and his response was very candid in saying based on the details of the ticket (location, amount etc.) he may not be able to help much in court and I probably would be better served going on my own. I really appreciated the honesty. After this the attorney still took the time to answer a few questions I had. If I were to need a traffic attorney in the future I would call them again.

Patrick Blanch assisted me recently with a traffic-related transaction. I found him very responsive, both over email and phone. He explained options and outcomes crisply and was able to deliver as expected, without any surprises. Would certainly recommend him

I met Todd while assisting one of our church member. I have found Todd extremely responsible, reasonable amount of money and easy to work with. He did an amazing job. I really strongly recommend him

Carly went out of her way to resolve a traffic ticket for me traveling through Virginia about a year an half ago not knowing or remembering where the violation took place.. She did the research while talking to me on our call to pin down which county. and then emailed me the instructions and links I needed to go to so I can pay my fine and complete the process to renew my license here in Texas. If I ever need an attorney in the future I would not hesitate to engage her as my attorney.


I’ve worked with Ms.Jehlen [Hart] on multiple occasions and she has been amazing, always follows up and sets reminders for upcoming events regarding your case. She is very respectful and easy going, and works with you with any situation. I highly recommend her services to anyone who is in need, by far one of the BEST attorneys I’ve worked with


Amazing attorney! Was able to get us the exact results we were hoping for in a traffic case. You will not go wrong hiring Carly for any of your legal matters.


Carly is awesome! Very knowledgeable, truly reliable, and a great attitude 🙂 She helped me out of a scenario that,I believed, would lead to jail time. She saved not only me but also friends and family from having to see that all happen. Deserves all 5 on every aspect!! 😀


Ms. Jehlen [Hart] is knowledgeable, capable, and consistently obtains decidedly favorable outcomes for her clients. When I am asked to recommend a criminal defense lawyer, I always recommend Ms. Jehlen [Hart].


One Amazing Defense Lawyer! I hired Carly Jehlen [Hart] to defend me in a DWI/DUI charge as the result of a sobriety checkpoint. My case was ultimately dismissed thanks to her expertise, whit, and tenacity. She kept me well informed throughout the entire process and answered all of my question (no matter how small). She is an amazing defense lawyer and I highly recommend her. Thank you for everything Carly! 


Carly is very professional and a pleasure to work with. She is knowledgeable and explains all the possible outcomes of your case in great detail. She went above and beyond in my DUI case and got great results.


Ms. Jehlen [Hart] truly impressed me and I was glad to see she had a vest interest in making sure I walked out of court with a ruling in my best interest. She will not accept defeat and will constantly fight to get the best situation/decision for her client. If I ever need legal assistance she will be the first person I call!


Ms. Jehlen [Hart] is an excellent lawyer who knows what she is doing. I’m fortunate that she was my lawyer.


[Ms. Hart’s] existing relationships with the Loudoun County prosecutor, judges, and officers is invaluable. I would never consider using another attorney at that courthouse! Going from a fear of a misdemeanor to no points on my license was more than I could have hoped for!


Carly defended my son charged with underage drinking. She prepped us well and had a good arrangement worked out before the court date. Highly recommended. 


Carly Jehlen [[Hart] was efficient,informative and reassuring at every step in my case,leading to the best possible outcome.She seemed motivated by a sincere desire to help and enthusiasm for her work. I recommend her highly.


Ms. Jehlen [Hart] handled two traffic cases for me. Her skill, knowledge of the court & recommendations for case preparation resulted in optimum outcomes in both cases. I highly recommend her for any traffic or other legal consulting need.
