“From the first time I spoke with attorney Vaughan Jones he made me feel very comfortable with the amount of knowledge he had of the law. He explained things to me in an easy to understand way. He not only gave me a lot of advice from the first moment we spoke but he was able to work with me and my financial situation . He assured me that he would be able to help me and he was able to get all my charges dropped against me. He genuinely understood how nervous I was about the entire situation especially with this being the only time I have ever had to deal with the courts. I would recommend him to anyone any day.”

  • Vaughn Jones, best lawyer in VA.

    “I have hired Mr. Jones to represent me on various occasions. He has done a marvelous job on every occasion. I consider him to be a top lawyer in Virginia and the best lawyer in Richmond. I strongly recommend using Vaughn Jones to represent anyone with legal trouble.”

    Previous Client

  • Attorney Vaughan Jones is wise, insightful and extremely attentive to his clients.

    “Attorney Jones represented my son. His case had complicating factors, which required Attorney Jones to research other similar cases and to contact other attorneys with the particular expertise. my experience with other attorneys was that they are uninterested in learning new techniques and options for the best outcome. Attorney Jones was willing to listen to us and realize that the best outcome required him to go above and beyond his usual routine, and found a solution that was the best for my son. This took more than dedication it took someone who was also compassionate for his client. I am more than 100% satisfied and totally recommend him. Thank you, thank you, Attorney Jones, for all the hard work you expanded on our case.”

    Norma Ellis/Vincente Garcia

  • I have dealt with other lawyers in the past and Vaughan Jones was easily the best I've had.

    “Mr. Jones represented me in 2 cases in 2 different counties. Hanover and the city of Richmond. Throughout both cases he got me better than expected results. Especially being that my case in Richmond took a lot longer to take care of due to the judges stipulations (over 2 years!) Mr. Jones always kept me in the loop and answered me promptly through various means of contact phone calls email and texts. I have dealt with other lawyers in the past and Vaughan Jones was easily the best I've had. Hopefully I won't need a lawyer again for these types of cases but if I do it will definitely be Vaughan Jones!”

  • 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.”

    Simeon D.

  • By far the absolute best!

    “Mr. Jones was extremely knowledgeable as well as proactive with my case. He was able to settle my case outside of court, which was a big relief. This whole experience was a big scare for me, however, Mr.Jones made me feel so comfortable and confident throughout the whole case . I highly recommend him to anyone! Although I hope I will never have to need him again if I ever did need an attorney I would not hesitate on calling him!”

  • Excellent service from an excellent attorney

    “Mr. Jones is a prime example of what an outstanding attorney is. I was facing four felonies which if I was convicted I would have been sentenced to over 10 years. With his skills and knowledge of the law, he had pulled the unthinkable plea. Thanks to him, my charges were dismissed and I was free. The plea was so good that the court was shocked at the outcome because it was such a good.”

  • Vaughan was worth every cent and in reality an actual bargain for his skills and acumen.

    “Vaughan was worth every cent and in reality an actual bargain for his skills and acumen. I selected him to defend my brother in law on a trumped up felony ($36K) insurance fraud case that the insurance firm clearly didn't want to waste their own money pursuing in civil court so passed it to a local prosecutor to spend our tax dollars on. Throughout the process, Vaughan was supportive and thought about various legal angles quickly on his feet. He believed my brother in law's innocence and that made him an even better advocate for us as he rejected the ridiculous plea bargains that were presented when he could have advised us to accept them and be done with the case. As some others have pointed out in their reviews, Vaughan is not always the most communicative and can be hard to get a hold of. However, I didn't reduce any stars because I wanted to make a crucial point in his defense here - he's a busy man and you get what you pay for. In order to provide his clients with those great competitive rates to defend their cases, he's got to take on more clients to be profitable. More clients means less time for the feel good hand holding and red carpet treatment one might like and expect from their lawyer in a time of crisis. Vaughan is more than happy to discuss your case with you, you just need to be proactive and willing to be persistent with phone calls and email reminders to bring yourself to the top of his hand holding priority list (i.e. he's triaging clients - is there something you need to know about your case like a plea bargain has been made? he's going to call you proactively. it's three month's till your court date and you just want to know what's the status on things? you need to call him). In the end, the very reasons I hired him: former prosecutor experience for the best price were validated hundred fold. He won the case and it was not by any means an easy or clear cut victory. It came down to legal briefs and a key legal argument. So, shop around all you like for a lawyer, but make sure you get a consultation with Vaughan because you may overpay or get someone less skilled otherwise! Thank you, Vaughan, for your hard work and your time willing to defend my brother in law! I can't sing your praises enough.”

  • I strongly recommend him, without reservation, to anyone who needs a knowledgeable, capable and caring trial attorney.

    “Vaughn C. Jones is a great attorney and did a fantastic job representing my 19-year old son regarding three felony charges. Mr. Jones personally and promptly returned my phone calls. On the few occasions that I was unable to immediately reach him, he had one of his staff respond to me. His staff also did an excellent job of communicating with me via email. I strongly recommend him, without reservation, to anyone who needs a knowledgeable, capable and caring trial attorney.”

    Karen E.

  • Professional and dedicated attorney.

    “Engaged Mr. Jones for an appeal of a conviction in district court, which carried a hefty fine and probation. On the appeal to the circuit court, with the same witnesses and the same evidence, all charges were dismissed. He was prepared, confident and aggressive in my defense. To me, the most important aspect was his ability to have me prepared and focused for my testimony. If you need legal assistance, call Vaughn C. Jones.”

  • Mr. Jones walked into that courtroom with me confident and ready to fight tooth & nail to defend me and my freedom.

    “Mr. Jones is such an incredibly amazing criminal defense attorney. I was accused of crimes that I didn't commit and was exonerated. I felt like I was in good and caring hands all the way from the beginning to the preliminary trial day. Mr. Jones was available 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns that I had. His legal secretary Spring is wonderful, very personable, caring, always kept me in the loop, informed me of any changes, and helped to set my mind at ease through this process. Mr. Jones walked into that courtroom with me confident and ready to fight tooth & nail to defend me and my freedom. Mr. Jones had advised and assured me that my case would resolve itself even before the trial date came and it did as he predicted! I had beyond amazing results! My innocence was proven. All 4 felony charges were dropped that carried 5 to 25 years each. I would highly recommend him to anyone! He is my attorney for life as I would never use anyone else for any legal needs and I would highly recommend him to anyone with a legal defense need without hesitation! He will always be my guardian angel!”

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

    “I was charged with 3 felonies, 2 of which were for controlled substance and the other for felony possession w/ intent to distribute marijuana. I had a prior felony as well for distribution of marijuana. Although there was heavy evidence against me Mr. Jones was able to reduce the distribution felony to a misdemeanor to avoid mandatory jail time. One of the felony possessions got nolle pros'd, and the other felony remained as part of the plea agreement set forth by Mr. Jones. Thus, concluding my 3 felony case as 1 felony and 1 misdemeanor. Mr. Jones's expertise was worth every penny. I'd highly recommend him.”

  • Exceptional attorney!

    “I never thought I would have to hire a criminal attorney for any of my family members, but life seems to give you a curve ball or two sometimes. Vaughan Jones has successfully represented my family for the last 3yrs, from the very small infraction of the law to possible life-altering felony accusations. He is a persistent fighter, intelligent attorney who cares about the person and family he represents. I wouldn't trust any other attorney to represent my family.”

  • 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”

  • Long story but I would definitely use Mr. Vaughan Jones again if needed. Thank you Mr. Jones.

    “I had a situation with my son's mother once I received more visitation with my son. Her mom said I used profanity on my cell phone when I called her cell phone to speak with my son. She filed some bogus charge like bullying [some new cell phone law in VA]. An arrest warrant came in the mail to my home in MD from VA [where my son lives] and I had to drive back to VA [I pick up my son and drive to MD] and Mr. Vaughan Jones was available to talk, discuss this law and the charges I was facing, and meet me at the jail where the arrest warrant directed me [I wasn't processed I guess because I had no record] I was cleared so if stopped I wouldn't get arrested. Mr. Jones made me feel way more comfortable and at ease. We got the case dismissed. Long story but I would definitely use Mr. Vaughan Jones again if needed. Thank you, Mr. Jones.”

  • 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.”
