“Mr. Bohannon took on a complex case of mine in the summer of 2016. He worked hard and quite effectively to limit the damage from the case over the next two years. Brent knows the system, he knows the people, he cares about his clients, he gives good advice, and he gets positive results. You can't find a better criminal defense attorney in Central Virginia.”

“He is the very best lawyer we have ever hired. He listens and helps! So happy we found him!”
