  • You Changed My Life

    Words cannot express my gratitude for all of your hard work in my case. You became more than just a lawyer, but a friend.

    Mr. Tillotson and his team all became a part of my support system. I truly do not believe I could have ever shared the same experience anywhere else, nor the same perfect results. All the hard work paid off and it literally changed my life. You touch so many lives with your diligent efforts. Don’t forget that! I will forever thank you and think of you often.

    Mr. Tillotson, you really are the best! I will refer you to everyone I know!

  • Provided the Absolute Best Defense Possible

    Mr. Tillotson provided the absolute best defense possible. He took the time to listen to how and why things happened. He made me laugh when I cried. He talked to me on the phone. He called me in the evening. He GENUINELY cares about his clients. I'm serious. He really does care.

    I would recommend Mr. Tillotson to anybody with a DUI charge.

  • You Have Given Me a Second Change at Life

    I am writing today to say thank you for all your support during this rough time that I had to endure. Your continuous dedication to my case showed me that you took time to prove my innocence.

    The kindness of your staff, yourself, and the doctor shows me that there are good people out there in the world willing and ready to defend those that are truly innocent and made an honest mistake. My life would have been in shambles without your help.

    You have given me a second chance at life without the thoughts of having to worry about my insurance going up, going to jail, losing my license, and sitting in an asap class. People like you are a true godsend, an angel at that.

    Thank you again; there are not enough words in the dictionary that can express how I feel.

  • You Went Above & Beyond

    Dear Mr. Martin, this Christmas card is also a thank you for helping to save my niece’s life. There’s no doubt in my mind that she would be in jail or dead if you had not gone above & beyond to help her. My family appreciates your kindness and compassion.

    My niece just got her license back & seems interested in life again. It’s nothing short of a miracle and you were certainly a part of that miracle!

  • You Truly Saved Me

    Mr. Tillotson helped me TREMENDOUSLY. Quickly put.... He was able to drop my 2nd offense DUI and refusal charge. He worked the courtroom like a complete professional and it was truly something amazing to experience. I was not expecting to walk out of court with the results I received, and IT WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN DONE IF I DID NOT HIRE MICHAEL TILLOTSON! He found so many issues in the police report and we did not even have to fight it because shortly put, Mr. Tillotson is the BEST OUT THERE! Thank you so much for all you have done for me, Mr. Tillotson. You truly saved me, during a time I was at my lowest.

  • Put Me in the Right Direction

    Dear Jeff, Continued thanks to you for your part in helping me out of my legal mess and putting me in the right direction. I am now sober 22 months- happy, joyous and free.

    Ironically – I also volunteer at the jail bringing AA to the ladies on Tuesday evenings (knowing it could have been me!)

  • Compassion for the Whole Family

    I am one of your client’s daughters. I wanted to say thank you. This past month has caused me to experience more pain than I thought I would ever feel in a lifetime. From the first moment I met you in the courtroom, you have not only treated my father, but me, with nothing less than complete and total respect, dignity, and compassion.

    You have talked to us many times on your “day off” and even on your birthday, just to help us understand. Thank you for recognizing our pain and treating us with dignity that so many people have not.

    I wish I could do more when the door closes on this case for you, please remember you did everything you could to make it easier for all of us. Know that you showed me you have a huge heart and are a good person.

  • Dedicated & Caring

    Mr. Martin, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for your dedication and time on my case. Although the outcome was a conviction and things will be slightly harder for me in the upcoming year, I take comfort in the fact that I don't have to wear all orange (lol) and can somewhat maintain my driving abilities. Thank you again for all that you have done.

  • Well-Connected & Respected

    Dear Mr. Tillotson, I would like you to know that we are very happy we chose you as my husband’s attorney. You were well connected and respected. Not only that, you were kind and gracious to see the reality of our financial difficulty.

    Thanks for your effort and kindness.

  • Got Me to Where I Am Today

  • Miracle Worker

    How can I begin to thank you for the miracle you performed before the court on my behalf? With a BAC of .28; a DUI charge (the second in ten years) and substantial jail time seemed certain. To have both the .28 BAC DUI and the jail time dismissed was amazing. You are so eloquent and compelling as you argue a case. I applaud you!

    - D.M.

  • Thank You for All Your Care

    Dear Jeff – I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to you and for all of your care for me during what has been the most horrific period in my life. I’m certain there are worse scenarios and I’m so thankful for your faith in seeing my case through.

  • Professional & Proactive

    Late one evening, I found myself in a very precarious situation as I was pulled over by a state patrol officer. The officer field tested me and subsequently arrested me even though I was under the limit on the field breathalyzer test. Once at the station, I took another test of which I was at the legal limit and was charged with a DUI. Tillotson & Martin took my case and specifically, Mr. Tillotson, fought for me in court which lead to me not being convicted of a DUI. The charge was reduced to reckless driving and I did not lose my license or have any driving restrictions imposed.

    Mr. Tillotson was very professional and proactive in handling my case. He was very articulate on what I needed to do prior to my court appearance to help myself so that we could attain the best possible outcome for our case. I followed his advice exactly which resulted in a positive outcome for me both professionally as Lieutenant Colonel in the Armed Services and personally as father and as husband.

    Without the expert advice and keen understanding of Virginia law, specifically as it relates to DUIs, of Mr. Tillotson, I would have been at a loss as to how to handle the situation I found myself in that night. Tillotson & Martin saved my long-standing career and my family from going through the unnecessary hardships that a DUI charge would have brought upon me. If you are in need of professional legal advice and support, I would strongly recommend you contact Tillotson & Martin. They are there to help you.
