Cody Remington and Levi did a great job when representing me in the Accomack County Court. I could not have asked for a better defense.Their fees are higher than the majority of their competitors but it was worth every cent. I highly recommend.

I highly recommend this law firm! Cody Remington was wonderful throughout this whole process. I am not from VA, I live in NY so I was very worried and stressed about how to handle the ticket I received. Mr. Remington was a huge help! He did not use scare tactics like other attorneys did, he charges a reasonable rate and he got my ticket lowered to something acceptable! I would give 6 stars out of 5 if I could.

The Riley and Wells team represents among the highest levels of customer service I have experienced. I reached out to them the same day I received my traffic violation. Mr Remington was very direct with his answers to my questions, addressed all my concerns and offered a course of action that let me know I was choosing the best firm to handle my circumstances. Responses to my queries were fast and reliable. Mr.Wells appeared on my behalf and was successful in securing the best possible outcome given the circumstances of my case. I am able to fully keep my driving privileges, pay a small fine, and leave with a minor violation after completion of community service. If you’re from out of town and receive a violation in the state of Virginia, this is the law firm you want to handle your case.

After receiving my first speeding ticket that exceeded the posted limit sign by 18mph I was completely devastated. My record was clean until this very moment. I felt overwhelmed until I contacted Riley & Wells where legal assistant Levi instantly reassured me her team including lawyer Cody and Daniel would be able assist me in this matter. The entire process was explained at length instantly. I provided my driving record and from there Levi, Cody, and Daniel worked diligently throughout the month on their own to reduce my charges. After appearing in court on my behalf Cody and Daniel were able to have all charges dropped to only defective equipment leaving me with only a small fine and zero points. My end goal of insurance not increasing was archived. Needless to say I highly recommend Riley and Wells for any legal matter. Their expertise in the court room is apparent and their customer service is exceptional.

Simply put, Mr. Cody Remington of Riley & Wells saves my career. I was nabbed for reckless driving but my attorney was able to convince the Judge to enter an order that protects me and have my charge dismissed. The attorney and employees of Riley & Wells were very courteous and provided me with excellent customer service. I highly recommend Riley & Wells.
