Their Stories

  • I am so happy.

    “Mr. Jones, I just want to thank you so much for everything. I remember my first call to you when you gave me the price - you said "Yeah I am not cheap. If you looking for cheap call someone else but if you looking for someone good, I am your person". I am so happy I made the choice to hire you, you saved my son's life.”

  • DUI offense- I wouldn't trust anyone else.

    “Mr. Jones helped me through a very difficult time stemming from a very serious DUI conviction. He lead me in the proper directions to not only come out on top in the courtroom but in my personal life as well. With his help, I received a very minimal sentence, fine & repercussions. Without his help, I would be facing the aftermath of my charges for years to come. I would highly recommend his expertise with whatever you may be going through. I was confident that things would work out and I was right.”

  • My verdict on both charges was not guilty.

    “I am a convicted felon. I have been to prison on (3) different occasions. One of my conviction is being a violent registered sex offender. I'm not going to make my case appear to have been an easy win because it was far from it due to my past. In October 2015, my life became a living nightmare. I was facing prison time and the prosecutor wasn't playing with me or trying to give me a break. I hired Vaughan Jones. When I first talked to him, he was very aggressive and wanted me to get straight to the point. I knew then he wasn't to be played with. We discussed my charges and then he asked me to turn myself in. My charges were abduction and assault on a family member 3rd offense. He told me that he would get me a bond hearing and assured me that he was going to get me out and he did. A month later I went to court and the prosecutor dropped my charges just to direct indict me to the Grand Jury, therefore I had to have another bond hearing and Mr. Jones assured me once again that he would get me one and he did. And not only that got me out. I was to the point where everything he told me I couldn't do nothing but believe him because he should proof of his work. However; there is still some nervousness and my behalf because I knew what I was facing. Well yesterday, March 18, 2016, Vaughan the Beast Jones ended that nightmare for me. Yes I nicknamed him the Beast. He attacked the judge, the prosecutor and the witness like a lion. I thought to myself for a second that this guy may get arrested in court if he didn't calm down, but neither happened. He didn't calm down nor did he get arrested. Vaughan Jones the Beast took over the courtroom. His closing argument was miraculous. After the jury deliberated. My verdict on both charges was not guilty. If your freedom is in danger and you need a reasonable attorney that will fight for you like you have paid him a million dollars, don't hesitate to call the Beast Vaughan Jones. He's waiting to lay down his life for you. Sorry, Joe Morrissey, we have a new champ in this town”

    Previous Client

  • I definitely would use and recommend Mr. Jones to anyone I knew who wanted to avoid their auto policy rates to increase because of speeding tickets.

    “I got a speeding ticket while driving thru Petersburg/Richmond area and Mr. Jones went to court for me so I would not get any points against my license. I am grateful and very happy that I didn't get any points and my insurance rates will not be negatively affected by that ticket. I definitely would use and recommend Mr. Jones to anyone I knew who wanted to avoid their auto policy rates to increase because of speeding tickets.”
