"Mr. Wilson's extensive knowledge of both the law and the ignition interlock device, combined with the standards he maintains with regards to representing his clients, is the only reason I did not go to jail."
When you are charged with an offense, you have to retain counsel that specializes in defending that specific offense. If you are charged with a DUI or alcohol related offense, you must retain T. Kevin Wilson. After being found guilty of DUI, I was brought back to court for an ASAP violation. Mr. Wilson did not represent me on either the DUI or the first ASAP violation and I was incarcerated for the violation. After being charged with a second ASAP violation, I hired Mr. Wilson to represent me. When my case was called we stood before the judge and Mr. Wilson began to present his argument, which, by the way, was excellent. However, the judge seemed adamant about incarceration since this was my second violation. After a few minutes the judge told us to sit down and the case would be recalled later in the docket. I assume this was because Mr. Wilson was fighting for me and the judge realized it was going to take some time to resolve the case, so the judge decided to handle some of the quicker cases first. While we sat waiting to be recalled, Mr. Wilson pulled out what I assume was a book of the Virginia statutes, reviewed it, and wrote some additional notes. I would not have noticed if I hadn't glanced over to see what he was doing. When my case was called again, Mr. Wilson presented another excellent argument which somehow kept me from going to jail - an outcome which seemed impossible after the judges initial response. Mr. Wilson's extensive knowledge of both the law and the ignition interlock device, combined with the standards he maintains with regards to representing his clients, is the only reason I did not go to jail. What Mr. Wilson did, you only see on TV. In my experience, lawyers do not put that much effort into helping their clients. If that's the kind of effort you're looking for, T. Kevin Wilson is your attorney.
"Mr. Wilson came highly recommended and I found out why." "He amazed me...." "Needless to say, I highly recommend Mr. Wilson!"
Mr. Wilson came highly recommended and I found out why. His representation was very professional and he went to trial extremely prepared and confident. He amazed me when he presented several legal case precedents from the local jurisdiction that actually involved the presiding judge. The juxtaposition of his demeanor and preparation to the other defense attorneys in the court room that morning was impressive. My DUI charge was dropped which saved my job and avoided all of the other possible consequences. Needless to say, I highly recommend Mr. Wilson!
"I could not be any more grateful for Kevin Wilson." "He was professional but at the same time he genuinely cared about me as an individual." "If you're looking for someone to go above and beyond for you...Kevin Wilson is your man. I am forever grateful."
"I went through, by far, the scariest time in my entire life. I could not be any more grateful for Kevin Wilson. My life was literally on the line. He did anything, and everything he could to help me. He was professional but at the same time he genuinely cared about me as an individual. Anything he could have done...he did. My charge was dropped to a Reckless Driving and I am extremely relieved. My LIFE literally flashed before my eyes and I feel like I'm being given a second chance. Thanks to Kevin Wilson. I would NEVER go with anyone else as my lawyer, nor would I refer anyone BUT him. If you're looking for someone to go above and beyond for you...Kevin Wilson is your man. I am forever grateful."
"The outcome of my case was far better than I could have ever imagined and I firmly believe that was directly related to Mr. Wilson's extensive expertise in DUI defense."

Both Mr. Wilson and his staff were always available, responsive and professional. They were there through every step of the process and made a difficult situation as easy as it could possibly be. The outcome of my case was far better than I could have ever imagined and I firmly believe that was directly related to Mr. Wilson’s extensive expertise in DUI defense.

"My case was handled with professionalism, reponsiveness, and care, for that I am very appreciative."
"I expected that when I hired a good lawyer, I would get some kind of break, but I never imagined an outcome like this."
"I expected that when I hired a good lawyer, I would get some kind of break, but I never imagined an outcome like this. I really don't see any improvements you could make. It's obvious that the right amount of time and effort were put into my case and all of my questions were answered in a quick manner. I would just like to thank the whole team at The Wilson Law Firm for your hard work and your results."
"The way Kevin helped me achieve the best possible outcome in my specifically difficult situation...made it clear that he understands the special circumstances of each case, and knows how to deliver results accordingly."
"My prior experience with the law/courtrooms/lawyers/judges/etc. had been only that of a juror pulling jury duty. I had never been on the other side of the aisle. It became immediately apparent that decisions made in court are not defined by the simple banging of the gavel as Hollywood would lead one to believe. There is a whole dance going on that the untrained eye would never see. There are steps performed which are dictated by complicated rhythms, principal dancers who must be given their due importance and the focus on stage at just the crucial moments, and the defined music (the law) which must never be compromised. I am a classically trained dancer; however, I felt confident participating in this ballet of sorts with the expert handling of Kevin and Melissa. All necessary elements were adeptly delivered by The Wilson Law Firm, but the extraordinarily impressive element was the way Melissa and Kevin glided through the intricate nuances of the evolving movements. They made sure their client's best interests and the dictates of the law were respected beyond what was required. As the premiere danseur, it was obvious that Kevin had expertly maneuvered this choreography before, which is why he was able to achieve the delicate balance between the rights of the clients and the law's requirements. Every case has an inherently unique quality. The way Kevin helped me achieve the best possible outcome in my specifically difficult situation in just 16 days made it clear that he understands the special circumstances of each case, and knows how to deliver results accordingly. Melissa's strong preparation, research, understanding of the seriousness of the issues, while exhibiting human warmth throughout the process, allowed the firm to complete its outstanding work."
"I'm extremely pleased with my choice of The Wilson Law Firm."
"Late in July of this year, I had the unfortunate experience, after my wife and I had dinner and a few beers, of being stopped for speeding - 40 in a 25 - while we were on the way home. I've been driving for fifty years and in all that time never had a moving violation. The speeding stop degenerated into a DUI arrest when, not knowing all the ‘rules of engagement.' I agreed to Field Sobriety and Breathalyzer (BAC) Tests. I've never been arrested before, so the act of being handcuffed and shoehomed into a police car as my wife looked on - in some distress - was a complete shock. I have to day that I was angry and scared. From there to the police station I had what must be the usual ‘this can't be happening to me' response. But that wasn't the end of the embarrassment. At the police station I had to repeat the BAC test and then had to be fingerprinted and photographed. Some three hours after the arrest, I was finally released on my own recognizance after appearing before a magistrate and being given a trial date. Only the next day, after searching the Internet for possible consequences of a DUI in VA, did I realize how serious the arrest could be - loss of license, points, large fines and jail time were all possible outcomes It became clear that I needed a lawyer, and quickly. I did a second Internet search, this time for law firms specializing in DUI defense. I decided on the Wilson Law Firm, but it wasn't until I had my first discussion with Melissa that I had the ‘you've made the right choice' feeling. She put me at ease about my choice and set up a meeting with Kevin Wilson. Her prompt responses to dozens of questions and concerns and her empathy and regular reassurances that things would be well made my life easier. My meetings with Kevin Wilson to discuss strategy reaffirmed my choice of law firms. He was confident and assured, and solicited my opinions regarding the case. His expertise was obvious and he took care to ensure that I was on board with his approach. At that point it was up to me to deliver my supporting documentation and Kevin's to finalize his approach. My day in court turned out exceedingly well, given the possible outcomes. Kevin negotiated a reduction in the charge from DUI to reckless driving, and I received a modest fine, suspended jail time and no suspension or restriction of my license. I'd been prepared for the possibility of a much more serious outcome. I'm extremely pleased with my choice of The Wilson Law Firm. Kevin Wilson and Melissa Hernandez are a great team. I always felt they were working together with me and for me. Melissa was always upbeat and made me feel that we'd get the best outcome possible. Kevin was calm and professional. I'd recommend them without hesitation to people finding themselves in ‘DUI difficulties.'"
"I can't begin to express my gratitude . . ."
"Kevin and Melissa, I can't begin to express my gratitude for your diligent and hard work in assisting with my defense. I am so very humbled and grateful given the outcome of the case. Melissa, I regret that I never had the opportunity to meet you in person. I am sure it would've been a pleasure. Kevin, you hold my deepest respect for your intelligence, confidence and drive. Thank you so much for your representation and advocacy. Please find the enclosed gift cards for each of you. I hope you can both treat yourselves to a dinner together to celebrate your collective efforts and success. If not, please treat yourself to an enjoyable time with a friend or loved one. I wish you both the best now, and in the many years ahead."
"The final outcome was beyond our greatest hopes."
"I wanted to take a minute to thank you again for all of your help with my case. The final outcome was beyond our greatest hopes. It was, of course, an extremely stressful process but in the end it all worked out. You said all along that Kevin would get us the best possible outcome - and he sure did! A special thanks to you [Melissa Hernandez] for the countless emails and the time you spent walking me through this whole thing, you did quite a bit of 'hand-holding' and it is greatly appreciated."
"We were very happy with the result . . ."
"We were very happy with the result and were surprised that Kevin was able to bring the DUI charges down to a Reckless Driving, especially in light of the high BAC. Melissa Hernandez was on top of everything and very responsive and helpful."
