My Career Was About to Be Over

It was one of the hardest moments of my life. I was pulled over for going 85 in a 60 and DUI. My career was about to be over. I keep asking myself how I could have been so stupid.
I chose Mr. Matney after calling and reviewing a few Lawyers. I was facing a Reckless Driving charge and DUI. I was going to lose my license for a year, face huge fines, maybe some jail time, and never get a job in my field again. I'm glad I chose Mark. The judge I had scheduled to hear my case had ZERO tolerance for DUIs (as he should), and if I went in there by myself, it would have been a sheep going to the slaughter. MARK GOT BOTH CHARGES DISMISSED! Invest in Mr. Matney. He knows so many tactics and has so much knowledge, you will be surprised by the outcome. Now I have my life back-- and Mr. Matney to thank. And I'll never drive after drinking (or speed!) ever again.

Fantastic Job

Mr. Matney and his crew did a fantastic job handling my case. They were all very professional, communicative, and kept me in the loop each step of the way. I commend them for that. Yesterday I even received a closing packet in the mail, never have before, pretty awesome.  I hope to never need them again, but if I do, I will not hesitate to call and/or recommend his office to a friend. Thanks again!


Speeding ticket defense attorney - Newport News VirginiaMatney Law Reviews...

Pull Over for Speeding

I recently was pulled over for speeding. The speed limit sign was blocked by trees. I hired Mark Matney as my attorney. He was very well prepared. I got my ticket reduced significantly and I had no points deducted from my record. I would highly recommend Mark Matney.

Amazing Representation

I hired Mr. Matney to represent me in court for a Reckless Driving charge. I was going 95 in a 65. The other five lawyers who I spoke to all essentially stopped listening to me after they heard my speed and were all but certain I was going to jail. Mr. Matney heard me out, and shot very straight saying there was a possibility I could go to jail, but there was also a chance I could avoid jail if I followed his plan. Mr. Matney gave me a clear plan of what to do and how we would defend my case. With Mr. Matney help, I was able to get my charged reduced a simple speeding, for 79 in a 65. I paid a $100 fine and did not have to go to jail. This was the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend Mr. Matney and his legal services.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

I endorse this lawyer. Mark Matney is a great attorney. When a family member of mine caught a reckless driving ticket in Virginia Mark was referred to us by a family friend. Mark did a great job helping my relative and in the end there was a great result. He is a wonderful person and a man of faith. He is hands down the best traffic/DUI attorney in the area. He knows the law and he knows the system. I would recommend no one else in Hampton Roads for a driving matter. I fully endorse Mark Matney.
