Fairfax Client Testimonials


“Charles is on top of it! When I met with Charles he was very realistic about everything; he didn’t allow me to get my expectations up too high. He was able to answer all my questions. I left with a clear understanding and a realistic view. Charles gave me a very good strategy as well and was honest with me. I really appreciate his thinking about it.”

“She has done very good. We have had some items come up where she’s helped me deal with them. It has been nothing but the best experience on my end so far.

Granted, I had to wait a bit until your Virginia office got started, but [I am] very glad that I did and it’s been worth the wait. It’s been a difficult time in my life, and [my attorney] and the team have made it easier. …”
