Virginia Crime and Traffic Law Firm was founded over two decades ago (in 1995) by David B. Albo and David A. Oblon. Over this time, we have grown into a strong regional law firm with offices in Arlington, Fairfax, and Staunton. Few Virginia firms are like us.
We prepare, we negotiate, we persuade, and we litigate. We don’t succumb to destiny, we guide it. Let us take an awkward moment to brag a little. We know of no other criminal law firm that can say that there is a criminal attorney in our firm who either prosecuted your charge, defended your charge, taught other lawyers the law on your charge, taught judges about your charge, or even wrote the law upon which you are charged. That means when you hire us, you will have a criminal attorney who knows, by experience, the best way to defend you, assert your rights, and get the best possible outcome.
Our lawyers are unusual
We are leaders in our state and community. Some have former experience as a legislator or a judge. Our lawyers include leaders in the bar and community organizations – from homeowners associations to the Scouts.
We teach law to other lawyers (and to judges)
Continuing legal education seminars we have taught include topics such as Employment Law, Civil Procedure, E-Commerce, Evidence, Ethics, Legislative Updates, and Criminal Defense. Please visit our “Seminar Page” for a listing.
We write the practice guides used by other lawyers to practice law.
Other lawyers use our practice guides and published articles in their own practices.
We have hundreds upon hundreds of trials under our belt.
Our attorneys include three former prosecutors. The trial skills gained as a prosecutor – such as voir dire, evidence, jury selection, motions in limine, objections, closing statements — apply to all courts in both civil and criminal law.
We are sought by the national media to comment on the law.
We have been featured over 100 times in the national media – such as FOX News and CNN. Please see below!
We love to win. Guide your destiny. Do not surrender to it.
Best possible outcome Mr Albo worked my case, which wasn’t an easy one. He managed to negotiate my charges down with the best possible outcome. My family and I were in a state of disbelief when he told us the results and they cried tears of joy! I will always be recommending him for anyone who manages to get themselves in trouble like I did.
Truly the best lawyer to have in your corner! I received my second reckless ticket within six months and after the first conviction I went to juvie for some time. With this second ticket in my corner I knew I needed help or else I would stuck and undoubtedly thrown back into juvie. I was going 51 in a 30, since it was barely a reckless Mr. Albo was able to help me get out of the reckless conviction and turning it into a plain speeding ticket. Also no license suspension at all in court. Without Mr. Albo in my side all of the punishments would’ve been extremely severe. 10/10 times I would recommend Mr. Albo, great lawyer and overall a great person.
Thanks to Mr. Albo I’m being a very careful driver but unfortunately got the reckless driving ticket and had to appear before the court. I was in total panic and stressed out as this was my first such incident in my long driving history. But luckily one of my friend referred me to Mr. David Albo, who was his past client. When I talked to him on phone and met him in his office, he sound very knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and very clear about the system and how this thing will be taken care of. Actually he assured me 90% of the outcome but finally got me 100%. My charge reduced to improper driving with $100 fine, a total relief. I was totally relaxed and happy and many thanks to Mr. David Albo for getting this. I would definitely recommend my friends to Mr. David Albo.
Worth Every PennyI had what most would consider a minor charge but it could of potentially cost me my career. Thanks to David Albo it didn’t. He was very upfront and told me there were no guarantees. In court he was the most confident person in the room. He put me at ease and his knowledge and experience showed. He worked his magic and my case was dismissed with community service. Thanks again Dave.
Best LawyerDavid was exceptional from start to finish. Very professional. Not your run of the mill court appointed attorney. Worth every penny. And beyond being a lawyer he was a nice guy to speak with. Thank you David for everything !
DUI defenseDavid Oblon got the best result possible. he is very professional and I would highly recommend him for any dui case
Excellent LawyerDave was extremely professional and realistic about my “Drinking in Public” case. His counsel and experience was an asset in mitigating my charges.
Charges Dropped!David Albo is the type of professional attorney who responds to your email within 10 minutes even if it’s at night! I was very impressed with that. I was WORRIED about my case but David was able to get the charges DROPPED within a few hours of being at court. Highly recommended!
Professional expertise unexcelled combined with empathyFaced with a potentially life changing terrible tragic traffic accident we turned to David Alpo to provide legal services. He took our case; he recognized almost immediately on the basis of his extensive experience that the facts and evidence could not justify a felony charge; and he at the trial obtained a resolution of our case to our complete satisfaction. Any person requiring legal counsel no matter what the charge can turn to Mr. Albo to take his/her case knowing that he/she will receive experienced, capable, and understanding representation.
David Oblon ReviewI hired David to represent me on a domestic dispute case. From our first conversation, I knew I was in the right hands. During our first conversation, David walked me through the entire process, the laws of VA and how he would represent me. In less than 24 hours, he was with me in court. He met with me prior to my court date to discuss my case with me and walked me through what would take place during the proceedings. When we met at the courthouse, he walked me through each step and provided me with my options along with the potential repercussions regardless of which option I wished to pursue. Because of his knowledge, skills, abilities and experience, David believed fully that my case would be won or dismissed and he was right. My case was dismissed. He even went the extra mile to provide me with links to websites that would get me through the process of getting my record expunged. I’d hire him again in a minute. He cares and he knows what he’s doing–and he wins!! What else could you ask for in an attorney?
David Oblon ReviewI hired David Oblon based on a strong recommendation from a business colleague. David successfully defended me for an all-day traffic fatality case. He is level headed, smart, accessible, and a pleasure to work with. He patiently answered all of my questions and had a clear understanding of the legal issues underlying my case and what the key points that needed to be established in order to win the case. I would absolutely use him again and recommend him to friends and colleagues.
Wow — David came through again!David recently came through a second time. A few years ago, my oldest daughter was in a minor accident and received a citation for not paying full time and attention while driving. David interviewed her and determined that the citation was unfair and flatly improper. David represented her in Court and after the evidence came in (with David’s objections to improper evidence repeatedly being sustained), the case was dismissed, with no citation, fine, court costs, points or record. As luck would have it, my younger daughter recently was also involved in an accident also received a similar citation. David interviewed her and realized that her citation too was completely improper. He also advised us how to deal with the insurance companies representing the other drivers. David then came thorough in Court again — after his evidentiary objections were repeatedly sustained, the Judge dismissed the case, with no citation, fine, court costs, points or record. I’m a lawyer (different kind) and can say that David really knows what he’s doing. Thanks!
PerfectHe was very helpful with my trial and with preparing for it. I ended up getting a sentence that was even better than what he expected!
DUI Arrest, No Conviction, Reduced ChargeDavid Oblon was extremely professional and effective. After a DUI arrest, he provided excellent legal counsel and guidance and clarity to the process, decision points, and choices. His effectiveness enabled an outcome that brought great relief. Highly recommend.
Speeding/Reckless DrivingMr. David Albo is a very responsible and caring individual who stands up to his word. In my case regarding a driving ticket which was imposed upon me by the cop as reckless driving, Mr Albo made sure the penalty is not reckless and just a speeding. In addition, he made sure to attend the court on the judgement day, rather than sending his office subordinates. Also, he guided me by giving advice and to check back with him fo make sure it appears as just speeding in my driving record.
DUI, breaking probationDavid was attentive and knowledgeable. I received a dismissal of my case and am very happy with his representation.
Professional AttitudeMr. Albo was everything you look for in a lawyer. I had never ran into any trouble with the law nor had I delt with lawyers prior to getting accused of reckless driving. It was just one of those time when you are focused on other threats on the road and pace yourself off the cars around you. My vehicle was singled out over the others and I was potentially facing a large fine, loosing my license, and most damaging to my career: a class 1 misdemeanor on my record. Mr. Albo stayed in contact with me leading up to my case. He gathered information that proved very useful in the end. When it came to my day in court he presented said information to the prosecutor and got my entire case dismissed. He was able to recognize that I was a good hearted contributing member of the community and a safe driver and he was able to convey that to the prosecutor. I could not have been more satified with the legal reprisentation that was provided by Mr. Albo and his firm.
Excellent attorney, excellent careI hired counsel in order to advocate for my rights in a court case where I was, “the victim.” The prosecutor chose to press charges, though I did not want actions taken and my requests to not press charges or take legal action were denied. My attorney, David Oblon, not only served as an advocate for me, but he really helped me to fully understand the situation, processes, and my rights. He partnered with the defense lawyer at my behest and worked exceedingly well with her and the defendant. David was very successful in getting the charges dropped and helping create a peace of mind for me throughout the process. He’s a wonderful attorney not only in his successful wins, but in his manner and kindness to his clients.
100 Percent RecommendedI was charged with Reckless Driving in the state of Virginia going 83mph in a 65mph zone. I retained Albo & Oblon law firm to represent me and was more than satisfied to have David Albo to represent me at my court date. As I had never had any charges against me, especially one as serious as this, I was incredibly nervous but Mr. Albo and his team gave me great advice including steps I should take in the time leading up to my court date. Mr. Albo did not give me any misconception of what may or may not happen, telling me to keep in mind that I could get my license suspended or sustain a large legal fee. His honesty was refreshing. With his legal counsel and representation, I was able to keep my perfect driving record and was dismissed of all charges pending that I take a driving course in the state of VA. I recommend him and his firm to anyone that needs honest, sharp, and quick witted counsel.
Stop reading and call Dave. Period.STOP. Yes, you. STOP. Stop searching online for a good DUI attorney and call Dave Albo. If the charges against you seem insurmountable, call Dave. If the charges seem like complete nonsense, call Dave. If you have no idea what you’ve gotten yourself into and feel confused and intimidated, call Dave. I landed myself in Federal Court with a DUI charge, a Refusal, and a few other things. I walked away (FROM FEDERAL COURT) with only Reckless driving. My initial consultation was completely FREE, THOROUGH, and gave me some PEACE, CONFIDENCE, and a REALISTIC APPRAISAL of my situation. Oh yeah, and IT WAS FREE. After you meet with him, you’ll know whether or not you want to hire him. Make no mistake. Hiring Dave will cost you some money. So if you’re looking for any old attorney that works at a discounted rate and will hold your hand while you eat a DUI charge (which will be on your record for the rest of your life), don’t bother calling Dave. That’s not what he does. If you want to ensure that the judicial system works the way it’s supposed to and that you get the best outcome possible, call Dave Albo.
Great Job!Mr. Albo represented me for a drunk in public charge in VA beach. Although expensive, his track record showed he could get the job done so I hired him. We walked into court and spent 5 min talking about case with the judge who dismissed my charge no problem. There wasn’t even an argument. He covered all the bases concerning the case and made sure he had all the facts before showing up, which you’d expect out of someone you hired. The only negative I’d say is he didn’t quite give me any hope before the case probably because they’re all busy and don’t have much time to review the case very far ahead of the court date. Aside from that he made the process as easy as you could hope for.
Helpful and reliableExtremely helpful and friendly, really made me feel much more calm and comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation for me. Helped get the charges against me reduced and I feel very grateful for the service he provided.
Best lawyer I have ever metery nice, responsible and knowledgeable. He provide his client with biggest support and helped me win the case. I consulted other lawyers before I met him, he is the best one and he is being very honest with the situations. I would definitely recommend Mr. David Oblon!
Best Employment Defense Litigator!As a small business owner, I thought I was well prepared for all challenges. However, after terminating an employee for lying, my business was sued for a host of false claims including discrimination. One would think that Virginia law would protect employers from ludicrous, false claims, but it does not. An employee simply needs to allege facts – often exaggerated, and in our case, complete lies…and you end up having to defend the business and its reputation in court. These employees, often termed “tort terrorists” sue to avail a quick settlement. In our case, that was the intention. He chose the wrong business to sue! I brought in Attorney Oblon to defend my 18 year old business. He understood the terms – no settlement. The claims were false and my business would not relent to settlement based on any risk/cost-benefit analysis. This plaintiff was not going to terrorize my business and make a quick dollar (he actually sued for six figures). Attorney Oblon was perfect and was brought in after complete due diligence on our part. He had the sterling reputation we desired and has a way of aggressively posturing in court without upsetting Judges. He is client driven and extremely quick to analyze arguments and counter them in the thick of a courtroom battle. He brought the plaintiff to his knees quickly and the final blow came with a motion for sanctions. This motion was never heard in court because the plaintiff quickly realized that he had chosen the wrong defendant and the wrong employment defense attorney. Attorney Oblon saved my business reputation and gave me great peace of mind through out the process. I would recommend him highly for any business seeking to defend itself in court. Superb attorney!
Dismissal of “Failure to Obey a Traffic Signal” caseAttorney Oblon obtained a dismissal of the “Failure to Obey a Traffic Signal” case against me due to his diligence and professionalism. Although he was told by the Prosecutor that a subpoena wasn’t served on a witness who failed to show up for my trail, he verified that the witness was in fact served– by posting, resulting in the prosecutor dismissing the case. If the witness had shown up, I’m certain that based on Attorney Oblon’s preparation and abilities a similar result would have been obtained. Would recommend that anyone who needs a lawyer to get the job done contact Attorney Oblon
A Truly Outstanding LawyerI was charged with a reckless speeding offense. Not just 20 over but 35 MPH over! I retained Mr. Dave Albo and his reputation, and skillful negotiation with the Commonwealth Attorney resulted in a Failure to Obey a Traffic Sign. This was a 3 point violation, not a 6. This will be on my record for 3 years not 11! Saved me thousands in insurance premium increases. And the fine was $150 not $2500 which was possible – not to mention the remote possibility of jail time. He made no promises up front since the offense was significant. Honest, well known, and a skillful attorney. IF I ever need an attorney again, I will be calling Mr. Albo.
Civil Suit SettledDavid Oblon did a phenomenal job working with our corporate team in achieving a settlement with a very difficult plaintiff. Our case required a substantial amount of discourse and electronic review and was handled flawlessly. David kept us informed, offered guidance and negotiated the claim in a professional and realistic manner. I would highly recommend David Oblon to handle any potential legal issue that one might have!!!
Robbery probation violationIf you are looking for a reasonably priced and extremely effective lawyer look no further. David was very responsive any time we had questions and made our case feel like a priority. My son was facing almost certain jail time for a probation violation and thanks to David he avoided serving any jail time or further punishment. I highly recommend David Oblon for your legal needs.
Speedy Success with Dave Albo!I am an out of state driver and was recently charged with Reckless Driving due to Speed in Prince William county which is a very serious violation. I am so glad I hired Albo & Oblon. Dave Albo represented me in court and we received the best case scenario outcome! After speaking with the ticketing offer and negotiating privately with the prosecutor Mr. Albo secured the dismissal of my case based on my completion of a driving clinic. Albo & Oblon made the process very easy and smooth for me. Mr. Albo is very professional, experienced in the industry and certainly kept my best interests as his top priority. Mr. Albo and his firm are well worth the investment and I would definitely recommend their services.
Great LawyerThe money is nothing, most important if you can trust your lawyer, and he is one of them. David thanks for help without your help I probably lost my case .
knocked it out of the park!Dave Albo did a wonderful job representing me. I hired him because he is extremely knowledgeable due to his many years as a state legislature representative. Not only was he always accessible by phone or email for questions I had, even his payment options were able to be processed via Web. I never had to go in person except for the court date. I highly recommend Dave Albo ; he gets results!
David Albo helped me reduce a Reckless Driving by Speed to a much lesser traffic speed violationI was charged with Reckless Speed Driving ( 84 mph in 60 mph zone) in Prince William county when i was coming back from a memorial weekend gateway with my family. I was really stressed out when i learn about the potential conviction of reckless driving conviction in Virginia–which is serious with lifetime misdemeanor record. Given my prior speeding tickers from two years ago, Dave advised me to get the Driver important class–which i did prior to the court date. Dave Albo was able to negotiate with the Commonwealth Attorney to reduce the Reckless Driving charge to a speeding of 79 mph in 60mph zone–a -4 point offense. I was only hoping to get the Reckless charge get dropped, but Dave Albo was able to went father. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
Absolutely top attorneyI truly cannot recommend Mr. Oblon strongly enough. If you are considering retaining him, please, just go ahead and do it. The entire experience with him in my case, from beginning to end, was absolutely exemplary. From the moment I met him at his office, to the conclusion of my case, I always felt as though I was in the absolute best hands. After a few consultations with other attorneys, I immediately signed with him. I was immediately struck by how professional he was, and how personable, and immediately felt that I would get a high degree of personal attention to my case and its particulars. I was not mistaken. Even the interaction with his assistants was notable. During each interaction, he was able to clearly and effortlessly explain his thoughts about my case at any level of detail that I needed, and I felt very comfortable that I had a full understanding of issues and strategies all times. When it came to my case, after getting his expert advice, my ultimate decision was to go to trial. I must say, as impressed as I was with Mr. Oblon beforehand, I was even 10 times as impressed with his performance in court. The care, precision and skill with which he handled my case blew me away. His ability to frame the points of the case and provide an overwhelmingly compelling argument for reasonable doubt in my case was nothing short of amazing. His delivery was concise, respectful, yet very strong. Despite testimony of two police officers and an expert witness *against* me in court, we were victorious and had my case dropped. Even if we had lost the case, I honestly would have been 100% satisfied that no other attorney could have done any better. Although my case was a DUI case, I would and will without a shadow of a doubt retain him again for any of the many other areas he covers.
Dismissal of Reckless Driving chargeDavid Oblon was able to get an unfair reckless driving charge for a ticket for a simple traffic accident dismissed. He explained the possibilities and our options all along the way, answered all of our many questions, and was very patient in going through everything with us. He appeared in court and was able to get us the most favorable result.
Reassuring and knowledgeableWe never thought we would have to hire a defense attorney! We were fortunate to have found David Oblon through an internet search. He was extremely professional, explaining the legal process thoroughly and answering our questions in a way we could understand. Mr. Oblon communicated on our behalf with law enforcement officers; he always responded to our phone calls in a timely manner, most often immediately. He was reassuring without giving us false hope. In the end, the case did not proceed beyond the filing of the complaint; we believe his involvement made a huge difference. We would highly recommend David Oblon as a defense attorney.
Appreciation for your expertiseI recently was charged with reckless driving, and was not sure what the result of my charge would be – I could lose my licence, pay a large fee or even spend jail time. I decided that it would be most beneficial to me to hire an attorney with expertise in this area. Mr. Albo took the time to research my particular situation and previous cases to determine that my situation could be viewed differently than reckless. He was correct and my charge was changed to improper driving! He also provided me with an excellent resource to take advantage of prior to my court date. I really appreciated and am indebted to Mr. Albo for getting me through this really stressful situation. I highly recommend him!
Excellence & Professionalism; A Step AheadAfter having received word of a potential criminal case against myself. I looked into using Albo & Oblon Attorneys at Law ; David’s firm based in Arlington, VA. After sending a preliminary email stating the outline of the potential case against me to David, he promptly responded with proper steps to take before we were introduced face-to-face. David patiently listened, took notes, and explained the potential outcomes which could arise if the case were too move into the court system. He lent an honest perspective, based on previous cases in his career and provided me with reassurance as to possibilities, positive as well as negative. In this day and age, having a lawyer who listens and explains everything in a way for you to understand is a god-send and helped me understand the circumstance I was in. He kindly told me I was in good hands, and that he would do everything in his power to help me in my time of need. He did an excellent job defending me and provided a strong defense. Highly recommended, highly intelligent, highly motivated. David is the lawyer you want on your side when you need it most.
DUI AttorneyAs you could imagine the potential charge of a DUI can give you a good deal of anxiety. However after meeting with Dave Albo I finally got some peace of mind know that I was in good hands. Additionally, he was very fair in terms of his pricing and was always available to answer additional questions. In the end my DUI was reduced to reckless driving, which I had told him was my number one priority and Dave was able to negotiate this plea with the prosecutor and officer.
Great LawyerMr.Albo is one of the most professional people I have ever met. He kept me updated with everything that was going on with my case and was someone that I could trust would do the best he could to prove my innocence.
Good lawyer who gets resultsMr. Albo was very straightforward and upfront with his plans for the case. He made sure that I knew what he needed from me in advance, and he produced the best results possible for my case. He is skilled at negotiating and a nice man to work with. He answered all of my questions in a timely manner and was very organized and thorough throughout the case.
Very glad I found Dave AlboI would highly recommend hiring Mr. Albo. He really helped me out of something I considered major with no real trouble for me at all. He was always responsive and kept me informed. He is very well known and respected, well deserving. He is certainly knowledgeable and has more than enough experience to do what he is doing. Hopefully I won’t ever need to again, but I would know whom to turn to or recommend to others. Thank you!
OutstandingI was really worried about my case given the circumstances. A bad outcome would affect my work. Mr. Albo was very good about explaining the best and worst scenario of my case. Once he had a chance to review everything he relayed to me on what he thought might be the outcome. I was relieved to hear that. The result was beyond my expectation. Thank you Mr. Albo. If I’m in need of an attorney in the future, Mr. Albo will be the one I contact.
Many thanks to Mr. AlboThanks to David for his dedication, his knowledge of what needed to be done in what sequence, and his demeanor throughout the process of my case. David was able to use my past record to successfully argue for a significant reduction in the class of my infraction, and made it clear from the onset that I needed to understand the seriousness of my future choices on the road – in other words, a great outcome but with the right advice.
Gross negligenceHe will not listen to you and understand your case like mine it was simple petty theft which I did not even commit. Before taking money from me he was confident to win the case but right after taking $8500 from he started talking in favor of public prosecutor and try to get me accept the probation offer and when I refuse to plead guilty he started showing me how my case is weak, he got me convicted because in court he did not open his mouth, the prosecutor did not even had evidence but she was good and confident to win and she did.I regret retaining him he charges big fees but he is not professionally capable of defense. You can retain this but you will get to learn on very expensive and disappointing cost.
David Barr Albo’s response“This person must have me confused with someone else. None of my clients charged with a first offense Petit Larceny have ever been convicted of Petit Larceny. In nearly 30 years of practicing law, I can not think of a single client of mine charged with first offense Petit Larceny ever being convicted of it. This is because the Court has a process to allow people to do community service in exchange for a dismissal. Secondly, I have never charged anything close to $8,500 for a Petit Larceny. Our normal fee would be between $1,500 to $2,200 depending upon the complexity of the case. Finally, there is an automatic right of appeal on a Petit Larceny. So if this individual was not happy with his/her outcome, he/she could have just appealed it and started over. If he/she were my client, and he/she did not like the outcome, I would have appealed the case for them and started over.”
Public Drunkeness and Profanity 17.7 – “DIP” Trial – Outcome: Not GuiltyDavid Oblon was great throughout my trial process and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that needs professional representation. I was wrongfully arrested for being drunk in public “DIP” in Arlington, VA by a police officer who made the arrest out of anger/ assumption rather than fact. Being arrested for “DIP” is not something that I wanted, nor should anyone want on their permanent record – especially if you know you were not guilty of this. In Arlington County, Public Drunkenness and Profanity defined under 17-7. states “It shall be unlawful for any person to be drunk or profanely to curse or swear in any public place in the County.” David agreed to meet with me for my FREE consultation and we went through everything in great detail, from what occurred the night of my arrest to what to expect from the prosecutor, judge and the arresting police officer during trial. He also went through what the implications of being found guilty would be from a permanent record perspective as well as the financial implications that I would incur from the court. This was once again, during my FREE consultation. David was able to immediately build a case on my behalf and gave me what he though were my chances of being found not guilty. Due to David’s confidence and attention to detail, I immediately felt comfortable having David represent me in court. Before my court date even took place, David was also able to arrange a plea deal with the prosecutor for me, for if I wanted a “sure thing” outcome. That would have included a guilty plead, community service and a fine – but no conviction. This would have been a great offer for someone who was in fact guilty, but we decided to go to trial. As I mentioned, I was arrested and charged with “DIP” and although I did use profanity that night, David clarified with the judge and prosecutor that Arlington County would be going after the “drunkenness” portion of this charge, not profanity – positioning us to win the trial. After the police officer testified and I myself testified to the events of that night, David continued to build his case and I was found not guilty. David is an experienced lawyer that pays attention to detail, is responsive to his clients (via phone or email) and will work hard to get the best possible outcome for his clients. I would use David’s services for any type of legal trouble I may encounter in the future and would absolutely recommend him to a friend or anyone.
Outstanding work with David Oblon todayI was thoroughly pleased with the Legal Work David Oblon did for my Family today in Juvenile Court in Prince William County.Mr Oblon was prompt,courteous and responsive in th emanner in which he handled my Daughter’s Traffic Case.He was very Professional before the Judge and had us in and out quickly.I highly recommend Mr David Oblon.
Professional and helpful. Would retain Dave again without hesitation.I was facing a reckless driving charge and was feeling very overwhelmed with all of the information from various attorneys online and the potential severity of this charge. Dave quickly responded to my inquiry, quickly set up a conversation and explained in clear terms exactly what he could do and why he was confident that he could be helpful because of his specific experience and background. He was informative but not pushy at all. Dave was professional and easy to work with at court and my charge was reduced to a much lower traffic infraction as a result of his work. I’m very happy with the outcome.
David represented me on the charges of DUI, Reckless driving and Refusal.From the beginning, David was very personable and listened to the facts. He was very upfront and honest about the possibilities of the outcome of my case. He always provided me with my various options and based on his experience, which outcome was more plausible. We went to trial with reasonable expectations of the outcome. Not only did David exceed my expectations, he got all of my charges dismissed. I couldn’t be more please of my experience with David Oblon.
David provided excellent representation and achieved the optimum result.David represented me in a reckless driving case in which I was cited for excessive speed in Virginia. He did an excellent job explaining my options and keeping me informed. He also represented me and my circumstances in a very straight forward and credible manner resulting in the most favorable outcome possible. I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking competent, credible, and honest representation.
Criminal Defense CaseI retained the services of David Oblon for a complicated criminal case. I was very concerned and apprehensive as I did not know exactly what I was walking into at the time. All I knew was that I was potentially facing a considerable amount of jail time. Upon hiring Mr. Oblon he was very considerate, understanding and thoroughly explained the legal process moving forward. Throughout this process Mr. Oblon was always available and willing to communicate with me and my family and address any questions or concerns we had. And we had a lot! Ultimately, Mr. Oblon was able to negotiate a deal with the prosecutor in which the court agreed to. I did very minimal jail time with a few other minor conditions. This outcome was above and beyond what I ever expected. To Mr. Oblon, this could have just been another case, but his persistence and genuine compassion regarding this issue was life changing for me. I would highly recommend David Oblon for any legal matter in which he specializes.
High RegardsI would recommend Dave Albo to anyone who is in similar situation that I was in. I was referred to him by a friend and was honored to have him represent me in court. As soon as I contacted Dave, he scheduled a time so we could meet to discuss what happened. I felt he spent as much time as I needed to discuss every question I had. After the initial meeting, we met a couple days before the court date and he explained to me what my options are and had a clear indication of what I could expect in court based on his wealth of experience. On my court date, Dave came well prepared on all the issues that could arise and his knowledge on DUI/DWI law is second to none, and it showed during the case. I hold Dave Albo in high regards and his name will be the first name I pass along to anyone who needs representation in court for a similar matters.
Fantastic Criminal Defense AttorneyDavid was very easy to talk to, making me feel comfortable in discussing my case with him and sharing my concerns. His staff was very efficient and pleasant to talk with during the process. David always personally responded to my emails and phone calls promptly. He answered all of my legal questions clearly and fully in plain language. He made sure that I always knew my legal options at every step of the process. He did a fantastic job in court and we won my case. I would highly recommend David to anyone looking for a fantastic gentleman to work with on a case. In addition someone who is also a knowledgeable, skilled and passionate attorney.
Thank You.From the very begining, Mr. Oblon was very up front with what his intentions were and what he thought he would be able to do for me, and that never changed. The end result was what he was trying for when we first spoke. I would defineately recommend him to anyone in search of a lawyer
David Oblon was the most professional lawyer I have ever retained.It was a absolute pleasure to have Dave Albon represent us in court. He was extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and trustworthy. I would highly recommend him.
Obstruction of JusticeMr. Oblon defended me in a case of police abusing their authority and charging me with obstruction of justice when I protested a police activity. It was extremely hard to defend because it was my word against the powerful police, who was plain out lying. To top that, I am an immigrant with a very thick accent. Everything was on the line: my record, my ability to earn a living, my freedom. Mr. Oblon planned the defense extremely well. We had a Jury trial and had lined up 3 witnesses. In court, he was very articulate and elegant. He was on top of the case and objected to all the prosecution’s tricks. After selecting the Jury, the prosecution and the police presented their “story”. Mr. Oblon, who was very well prepared, presented the case law. He skilfully contrasted it with the police testimony, and argued the charge had to be dismissed. The Judge took some time to review the law and came back, found me innocent and dismissed the case. I did not even have to say my story! The Court dismissed my case on Mr. Oblon’s Motion to Strike. This means that the Judge decided that, as a matter of law, the case had to be dismissed before it even went to a Jury! I should add that throughout my ordeal, Mr. Oblon was very supportive. He took his time to listen to my story and the events. He spent many hours to explain to me and my witnesses all the little details of the law and the trial procedures, so that we did not have any surprises. One can imagine how much stress I was under, but Mr. Oblong was very reassuring and confident. He was immediately responsive to all my requests. I could have never wished for a more positive outcome of my case. I strongly recommend him to all my friends. In these difficult times, where citizen’s freedoms are challenged by the powerful, Mr. Oblon is the best defense attorney one can have.
Misdemeanor over Columbus Day WeekendDavid was contacted over the weekend, promptly replied, and came to the jail to see me the next day on a Sunday. Other individuals I spoke with were having a very hard time getting a lawyer to respond on a Saturday and see them on a Sunday, so I considered myself quite fortunate to find David. When he spoke with me, he was very professional and explained my options and the potential outcomes of each very clearly. I was initially quite concerned that I would not be bonded out and expected, at a minimum, to spend another night in jail after my bond hearing. I also anticipated having to spend money on bale bondsman, and that I would be required to return in a month or so for a court date. David was able to work with the Judge and Prosecutor to expedite the entire process. He was able to get the more serious of my two charges dropped and the remaining charge settled the same day as the bond hearing, which meant I did not have to post bond, I was released the same day, and I did not have to return later for a court date. Because I was in jail over the weekend, my time served was considered and my sentence was to remain on good behavior for 6 months. I honestly could not be more please with the outcome and would certainly recommend David to anyone who finds themself in a situation that requires a lawyer.
This guy is a very good lawyerDavid Oblon is a very professional person. He doesn’t give lectures. He listens to you and takes your side immediately. He is logical and helpful. He is a great guy to go to battle for you.
DUI/DWI AttorneyMr. Oblon handled our case with care and professionalism. He is well versed in the details of the law and was comfortable in aggressively pursuing every angle available to achieve the best possible outcome. His interactions with the other lawyers, law enforcement, judges, and clerks made it clear that he is respected within the courthouse. He provided us with a much better result than we could have gotten on our own or with a lesser attorney. Much appreciated!
Best Trial Lawyer, Period.First off, David Oblon is a wonderful human being, not to mention an amazing attorney. I know it’s hard to think a high-profile attorney could also be a great human being, but he truly fits the bill for both. This was my first experience with an attorney and admittedly my case was not in the category of what you would consider “interesting”. I was nervous going into the process that as soon as I paid this high-profile, top tier attorney the retainer fee that he would say “see you court” and that would be the last I heard from him. That could not be further from the truth. David was always available and easily accessible by phone or e-mail. To be perfectly honest, I felt like I was his only case that he worked on, this obviously was not the case because he would go out of business, but his dedication to my case was nonetheless, remarkable. David’s expertise and knowledge in the field of law is demonstrated in everything he does. He is also refreshingly honest, letting me know when my ideas were, well frankly, just not helpful in any manner and actually could hurt my case. David’s ethics and integrity are also equally as impressive and unshakeable. To summarize my experience with David Oblon, I can simply say this; there is a reason he has so many awards and so much public recognition. He has all of that because he has earned it and deserves them. There is no reason to go with a different law firm. Choose Albo & Oblon, LLP.

Review of David OblonI hired David Oblon to represent me in a reckless driving (speeding) case. He made several key recommendations including speedometer calibration that supported a reduction of the charge to simple speeding. I arrived at court 15 minutes early. Not only was he was already there, he had spoken to the prosecutor and had an agreement waiting for my OK. He kept me informed, throughout the process, and responded quickly to my questions. I would highly recommend David Oblon and his firm.
Great Lawyer!I had a very unusual case and he helped me greatly throughout the process. It got to be very confusing and he continually explained things to me and my family in order for us to have peace of mind. He worked very diligently on the case and not only gave me legal but life advice as well. I would choose him over again but hopefully wont have to. I 100% recommend this lawyer.
Stereotypical LawyerIn my first ever true need of a lawyer, I found Oblon searching through the internet. On a short turnaround and with no other resources I made my way. Initial visit was pleasant, with nice promises of doing whatever possible. Very typical one would assume, until the cost. Told me that that did flat rate pricing and that it would be just over $4000 for services of having someone (not him) show up to court once for hearing and for him showing up to trial. Being that I was limited on time, and not knowing what pricing should have been (other than expensive) I paid the amount. Having looked around since then I severely overpaid with not even a thought of compensation from Oblon. Leading up to court i asked several times what I would need, when to be where, and asked if we would meet again. I got quick responses over email telling me not to worry, he would simply meet me before the trial date. Trial date shows up, and he is late to court, which apparently isn’t a big deal except to me. So with no explanation, I called his office several times and talked to an impatient and unpleasant receptionist who basically told me tough, and to stop calling, he would be there when he gets there. Oblon comes in about 20 minutes late saying he is surprised we are the first case. He “negotiates” with the DA and basically tells me to take whatever she is offering, basically with very little interpretation and tells me it is up to me to make a decision. Wow, I could have done that easily without him, and certainly without paying him $4k to show up late, stay for 20 min and tell me to write a check and walk out. This or at least I should have just hired the cheapest guy in town to do the same. Perhaps I expect to much of people to be genuine and live up to minimum expectations, especially when they take a large amount of money from me in the process. Would severely not recommend using. Extremely disappointed in performance, despite fully expecting the result of my case.
