I was exhausted with my situational crisis by the time I got Attorney Adrienne Goodman on the phone. I was exasperated, circling back remembering details to give her, losing my train of thought, and near tears. Ms. Goodman gave me her full attention and let me get all of my anxieties out. She was very professional, extremely patient, and made me feel completely at ease. I took a deep breath and waited for what she was going to say- I thought she would think I was crazy! She asked me a few questions about specifics and then started with “the first thing we’re going to do….” and I felt immediately assured that she had a plan of action! I was so nervous to even talk to an attorney at all, but she made me feel like I was talking to a friend with my best interests at heart. And she didn’t like that I had been treated unfairly and this was how we were going to resolve the situation. She is great- with any luck this can be resolved outside of a courtroom. I recommend talking to her and seeing what she and this firm can do for you if you are in a jam. You never know unless you make that first call, and I am so very glad I did!


The moment I walked into Attorney Charlie’s office – I felt relief – relief that he understood my situation and explained how the courts work. He set up a detailed plan on how to prepare myself for court and the steps he would take to ensure a successful trail. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional while being understanding and compassionate to my feelings and concerns. Attorney Charlie is truly the #1 Super Lawyer in VA Beach to me – I will continue to use and refer him for all current and future needs – Thank you Charlie!!


I cannot say enough good things about attorney Adrienne Goodman. My brother retained her for a divorce case and from the beginning her advice was spot on. My brother went through some pretty horrific things during the year he spent divorcing his ex-wife ( false accusations and arrests) and Adrienne was not only exemplary in her treatment of my brother but was excellent in her treatment of his family. She and Charles were both outstanding and I wouldn’t hesitate from using them again or recommending them to people I care about. Great job guys and thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!


Mr.Pincus is an excellent Virginia Beach criminal & traffic attorney. As a bail bondsman, I’ve referred him numerous clients and they’ve always been very pleased with his representation. He also handled a friend’s divorce. Give him a call, you won’t be disappointed.


Came to the office and met with Mr. Pincus the day before my trial and he did an outstanding job! Walking into his office I was an emotional wreck and he made me feel at ease instantly. He explained how everything worked and went over all the details with me before the case and pleaded my case better than I could. Would recommend him to anyone!Jeri Lewellen


Hampton Roads has an immense Military presence and with that comes an immense divorce attorney presence. This leaves an active duty military person like myself overwhelmed with options, not knowing who would best represent me during one of the most trying times in my life. After a recommendation from a very knowledgeable source on base, I contacted Mr. Pincus’ law firm. I was scheduled immediately for a consultation with Ms. Goodman.
If first impressions are indeed the biggest indicators of what to expect, then the front office personnel and the paralegals of this law firm do an outstanding job of displaying a professional, caring, and understanding attitude. This directly reflects the overall experience of working with Ms. Goodman and Mr. Pincus.
The consultation with Ms. Goodman was extremely impressive. I was able to leave the meeting very comfortable and confident that Ms. Goodman would be able to represent me fairly. Throughout our first conversation it was very apparent that she was not, in any way, going to let me go down any path that would not help the divorce case. Ms. Goodman was available to answer any questions that I had, no matter what time of day or how ignorant they may have been. Additionally, her research skills were immense. She was able to discover very important things for my divorce case. She also has a tenacity that is unparalleled. She would not settle for anything less than perfect from the opposing council, and if they even hinted at wavering on required information, she was on top of it in a heartbeat. If you want a lawyer who will tell you only what you want to hear then Ms. Goodman is not the one for you. If you want a lawyer who will give it to you straight, take you in the right direction and will not hesitate to tell you if you are being petty, childish, or just plain wrong, then Ms. Goodman is the best there is.
While the divorce case was getting ramped up, I was undeservedly arrested on 12 counts of Domestic Violence fictitiously filed by my ex-Wife. As a squeaky clean Sailor, I have never imagined that I would be in jail for any amount of time. I was at my wit’s end on how to proceed. In an amazing stroke of luck, I was able to contact the law firm and discovered that they were also Criminal Defense attorneys as well. Mr. Pincus represented me during this extremely trying time and I felt like I was watching a surgeon at work in the operating room. Mr. Pincus has a calm and laid back demeanor that honestly had me worried until I asked him during a recess what he was doing. He was able to explain his plan to me and what he was attempting to accomplish. At the end of every criminal case, when all was said and done, every judge’s decision was an almost exact replica of what Mr. Pincus told me he was planning.
Both Ms. Goodman and Mr. Pincus have gone above and beyond with their care of me and my cases. They have litigated my divorce, multiple protective orders against my ex, and my criminal charges and I haven’t “lost” one case yet. They have worked with my military command and kept them informed with letters and emails to my supervisors. They have even kept my family informed while I was locked up. I can’t ever describe the immense debt and gratitude I have for this law firm. They kept me out of jail, sane, and employed during one of the most trying situations of my life. They have my highest recommendation and have even represented two friends of mine who have similar positive experiences with the lawfirm.


Mr. Pincus is extremely well versed and knowledgeable when it comes to traffic law. Unlike my dealings with attorneys in the past, Mr. Pincus actually took the time to fully explain the details of my particular case in a manner that I could fully comprehend.


I love Charles Pincus!! He answered all my questions as they came to him. I couldn’t of asked for a better attorney. He was very fast at responding to any of my calls and for his partner she was amazing also on the phone to calm someone down when their anxiety was thur the roof!! Thank you guys for all your help through such a rough time!!😊

Thank you again,

A friend whom has no luck found a good attorney here. I went for a traffic violation. Charles was upfront and told me exactly what could, would and should happen and it did. Needed the appeal just as he said and the ticket was reduced to a non moving violation as he and I hoped. Never had a better traffic attorney. In Virginia Beach, YOU NEED ONE! This guy is it!.


Attorney Pincus was professional and knowledgeable. He did exactly what I needed, and was there last second to help out. Would definitely recommend.


Best lawyer I have ever worked with, He is an amazing compassionate and brilliant attorney, I would recommend him to every and any one seeking legal counsel!!!


He is the greatest, Thank you and your firm for getting my other half through things that should have been handled years ago. Also thanks for being patience with us. Will contact you soon nothing legal
