Greg’s the man. Very knowledgeable on VA code and will ask the right questions for you during your case. Would recommend.
They were amazing ! I was contacted frequently to check on my progress on the things needed ! I was comforted in a time of need & Paula is just an all around kind spirit !
The Best you can Get
Top notch, professional, efficient. Do what she asks, and she will take it from there. You may not have to appear in court. I got my charge dismissed with no fine or community service. Outstanding.
Reckless 107 miles per hour dismissed
Great Legal Firm
Having been represented by this law firm was the best decision I could have made. A misdemeanor traffic charge was reduced to a simple infraction, and another charge was completely dismissed. As a young man who very expensive insurance already, this was very important to me. Great work and much appreciated. Seth H.
Attentive and responsive attorney
The resolution I was hoping for.
She was engaged immediately.
As if hired.
The important aspects of good counsel for me are, empathy, attention to detail but most importantly,
Her experience, reputation and relationships with the court’s.
Plus fair pricing which, these day’s very few people offer, or service.
Thier all about the $$ first.
Paula was more concerned if we were a good match, what manner of client/person i am and what the overall case & details were.If she could actually help me or not.
I have zero complaints at all with Paula or her firm.Thier polite, diligent & follow up.
I was very lucky.
Especially to have hired Paula & stayed out of her way & let her handle my case.
She’s very sharp and tough.
Ty again for everything Paula.
I’m in your debt. Anything i can ever do for you & your family, I’ll be there.
Ty again Ma’am
Top Notch, going above and beyond. We highly recommend Bernstein and Hough, PC. Thank you!
RPD Officer Ticketed Me For A Wreckless Driving Charge
Ask for Paula!
My son referred me to
Took care of my VA Reckless Driving for Speeding over 80
Best Possible Outcome!
From the initial consultation, the people at BernsteinHough impressed me with their reassuring competence and warmth. They gathered information, suggested I take certain steps to help my own case (Defensive Driving class, letters of support from associates) and assembled an appropriate file to bring to the hearing. Each encounter I had along the way, either with attorneys or staff members, was consistently professional, but also personalized and friendly.
I had hoped going in that Mr. Hough would be able to help get my charge reduced, saving me additional embarrassment along with heavy fines and future insurance costs. My case was ultimately dismissed, which was of course the best possible outcome. It’s rare that what happens is beyond what is either expected or promised, and I very much appreciate the efforts of Mr. Hough and his entire staff. I recommend BernsteinHough without hesitation.
Excellent communication and result
Great communication and information about the process. Called me back quickly after first contact online and took everything from there. Didn’t need to show up to court, and everything went according to expectations. Very happy
A great choice!
Professional, effective, and very kind!
VERY RECOMMENDED ATTORNEY!!!
I’m glad I hired Mr. Hough to represent my case. Our conversation was clear and understanding. Their team was really friendly and they answered all my questions in a timely manner. I’ve got a reckless driving ticket which was reduced just to regular ticket with no points. I’m really satisfied with the results.
Got the job done
No surprises, except a good one
Awesome! I was very satisfied. A court of law is an intimidating place as you all know. Glad that my case was handled with minimal effort! Would definitely recommend.
Wreckless driving brought down
I originally had a different attorney but he was activated back to active duty. Mr. Hough answered all my questions and always answered my emails or Returned my phone calls in a timely manner. He dropped my wreckless driving ticket to a speeding infraction. I would recommend Mr. Hough.
Facing sentencing guidelines that called for a period of incarceration of 18-24 months for my first violation I knew that my entire case was going to come down to my lawyer digging deep into my whole story not just the small window that my violation portrayed. Paula spent countless days and NIGHTS working on my case. She was diligent in tracking down all of the relevant information needed to present me with the absolute best defense. Having been through three jury trials in my life I would say that she put as much effort into this revocation hearing as some lawyers put into prep for a jury trial. I saw her no less than three times at the jail, I know that she had several lengthy conversations with the Commonwealth Attorney and answered her phone personally EVERY time I called.
On my hearing date there were 39 cases on the docket. Many of which were about 5-10 minutes in length. My case was second to last and lasted a record 30 minutes. Paula called witnesses, submitted 58 pages of evidence and presented one of the best defenses I have ever had in a courtroom. Of the 39 cases called that day I was one of two with the worst-case scenario calling for a lengthy jail sentence. The other guy received the full two years and I was sentenced to 2 months in jail and was only 1 of 5 to go home from jail that day. When I say Paula put everything into my case, I mean that. She left no stone unturned, no loose end flapping in the wind and lived up to her billing as an incredible lawyer. Most people when searching for a lawyer want a Pitbull. Someone who is going to get in there and fight tooth and nail for their freedom. Who is ferocious when needed and can finish what they start. After my experience with Paula I would say that she is a lion. She has an incredible work ethic, is fearless in front of a judge and fights hard no matter the adversity. I have never written a review in my life but I do not hesitate for a second to recommend her to anybody who is reading this review. She is definitely an honorable woman who hits like a 300-pound linebacker when needed. If you need a criminal defense lawyer who is able to make the absolute impossible, possible than she is your woman. Although I will say as a sidebar she does not mince words. She will tell you like it is and in a world where many lawyers will tell you what you want to hear, Paula will not. She will tell you like it is, then get in there and get the job done.
Very good Lawyer
Felony and Misdemeanor Charge Dismissed!!
Mr. Hough and his team are the best
Excellent Representation for Speeding Ticket
Excellent results on my case. Charges dismissed!
Very Trustable and Professional
Very professional group. Paula helped us a lot with our son’s case. She was clear, upfront and yet, had a personality of someone you would trust with your son’s situation.
Greg led me through the court process, went to court for me, had me attend traffic school (I did an online course) and got my case dismissed. While everyone might not be so lucky, Greg will give you the best possible chance for success.
Very clean and proper process
Excellent service from start to finish

Paula Bernstein Hough
Paula did an excellent job with our case. She was knowledgeable, patient with questions, a good communicator, and genuine. She also had good command of the facts of the law and was confident in her work. We trusted her completely and highly recommend her.
my behalf for a wreck less driving violation and I received the minimum about in fines, plus the court fees and his flat rate was
a reasonable amount as far as I was concern. Being out of state, it
was most important that I found an attorney that I felt would represent me fairly and would do the best he could. Residing far
away in Mass. I had received 11 different letters from attorney’s
in the Henrico, Va. area wanting to represent me and most of them use that scare tactic in their letter by saying, you can be fined up to $2500. or serve 12 months in jail. Atty. Hough’s letter
was nothing like that and was properly and professionally written as far as I was concern. So I checked him out on google to see
his expertise and education etc. and was satisfied and then contacted him by phone from Mass. and I explained my situation to him and was impressed with him during our conversation and he told me his flat rate etc. and I hired him and was satisfied.
Very favorable result
