Found Mr. Short for a close friend for a probation violation charge in Loudoun County. Do not be misled by his demeanor. He shredded the Commonwealth and the PO on the entire thing and it was dismissed. His fee was very reasonable. If you have legal trouble, he's a great lawyer to help you!

Jonathan Short handle a case for me - I had someone owe me money initially I thought I could only sue for the amount owed - however after consulting with Attorney Short he informed me I had a fraud charge as well which added an additional $5000.00 on my claim plus attorneys fees!

Needless to say I was very pleased with his services. He is very knowledgable, accessible and represented me well! His fees are more than fair! The thing I love the most is he always took my calls which to me is very important.

I would highly recommend his services!

Mr. Short is an incredibly skilled and composed negotiator who not only demonstrated the ability to successfully navigate the challenging and intense feelings tied to an emotional charged case, but also showed genuine concern and empathy for my situation. He consistently communicated with me and followed-up as promised throughout the entire process and was able to facilitate a satisfactory resolution in my permanent protection order hearing. I would highly recommend Mr. Short to anyone in need of competent and experienced representation.

Mr. Short handled my defense in a DUI charge case for me very recently. I chose to use Mr. Short's services by asking several Attorney friends for their recommendations. Was I ever pleased that I took their advice. I had some initial doubts about using an Alexandria Attorney for a case in Arlington, but was impressed when he was knowingly approached and greeted by name from the other Attorneys as well as the Judge. He did his research, and clearly has extensive experience in defense matters. More importantly to my case, was his quick evaluation and application of both Constitutional Law and the Virginia Legal Code. His Courtroom strategy of dealing with the Prosecutor was amazing to watch as he executed his legal strategy with the reactions and outcomes all occurring precisely as he predicted. I think my mouth dropped when he immediately objected on points of law, as the prosecutor started her case. I believe the Judge let her continue speaking out of professional courtesy. When she was finished, Mr. Short raised his initial objections again and the Judge simple said, "not guilty". By the end of the hearing I had goose bumps while watching him overwhelm the prosecutor at our Arlington Court House hearing. Mr. Short is at the top of my 'short' list to recommend to anyone in need of competent and experienced representation.

Mr Short reviewed a business contract for me. He was easy to to engage, quick to respond, and provided concise contract improvements. He offered very logical corrections that I had not considered and gave me confidence in my legal position. Mr Short is very knowledgeable and I look forward to engaging his services again if needed.

Grateful C.

Jonathan Short has handled two criminal matters for my son - a juvenile case involving a charge of destruction of property (graffiti); and an adult case involving drug possession, later complicated by probation violations. He made multiple court appearances and negotiated fair results in each of these cases despite the challenges posed by a teenaged client. His fees are extremely reasonable, but more importantly he is smart, creative, experienced, accessible, and caring. He's simply the best.

I've been working with Mr. Short for many years; mainly having him available for problems with tenants, most recently for a divorce. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, listens to my needs and comes through. Highly recommended.
