  • Won my case!

    “Very knowledgeable and confident. Expressed interest in my case and gave me good professional advice. Explained options well and when I decided to fight rather than plea he seemed very eager and excited to get started. Even though I felt there seemed to be some lag in communication during the whole process we ended with a not guilty verdict. I would definitely recommend Mr. Jones.”


  • Mr. Jones's expertise was worth every penny.

    Former Client

  • Underage Possession of Alcohol 2nd Offense Dismissed.

    “Vaughn C. Jones is not the type of lawyer to sit by placidly while a prosecutor dishes you a sentence. After I was arrested for underage possession of alcohol in Fredericksburg, VA I contacted Vaughn C. Jones, Attorney at Law. The prosecution had a pretty good case against me because I had a strong appearance of alcohol and I admitted to drinking even though I was not in the possession of any alcohol. During my hearing, the prosecution failed to have the presiding officer acknowledge that I was under 21 on the night of the incident. In retort, Vaughn Jones wasted no time in pointing this out and my case was dismissed on this technicality. Even if this lucky incident had not occurred, however, Mr. Jones was well prepared to defend my plea of not guilty and I felt confident to have him as my attorney. As a result of Vaughn Jones, I am currently free of any convictions and I will be certain to contact him again in the case of any future mishaps.”
