Testimonials

Samantha was successful in delivering on the outcome we worked towards. She was specific about what needed to be done to put us in the most likely position to receive that result and worked with me throughout the process to make it happen. I would recommend her to anyone looking for support on a range of traffic citations in Virginia. As someone unfamiliar with the laws of this particular state’s highways, she provided me with key information that I otherwise would have spent a significant amount of time looking into on my own. Samantha is also extremely professional, easy to work with, and a genuinely kind person.

Samantha helped me tremendously. I was looking around for lawyers, when I found her name. I decided to give her a chance. I’m glad I did. I would definitely hire her again if I need to. I hired her to investigate my case and she handled everything quickly and professionally. I will definitely recommend her to family, relatives, and friends.

- Anesa

I would definitely recommend Upton Law, PLLC. Always answered when I called if not I would here from her that evening. Ms. Upton was so awesome I was sick and went to the hospital so I missed my Henrico court date. My #1 LAWYER reach out to me to let me know I had a warrant out for my arrest. She made it her business, mind you that she didn’t represent me in Henrico but she went to Henrico spoke with the Judge and called me and told me to stop stressing and feel better everything was taken care off!!!! I don’t have any plans on getting involved with the legal system ever again but if I do I would send my last dime to hire Ms. Upton.

- Norman

Ms. Upton was outstanding in assisting with my reckless driving by speed charge. From when I first spoke with her during the free consultation she was very confident and helped to ease my mind about the situation. After hiring her as my attorney we had fast and clear communication through telephone and emails. I am from Florida, did not have to appear in court, and she able to get my ticket reduced to a non moving equipment violation. Ms. Upton clearly takes her profession very serious and I would highly recommend her legal services.

- Brad

Samantha was very helpful since the very first day I contacted her through the phone and without yet taking the case she showed a lot of interest and cared about my issue. She then told me what my options were and what she recommended on doing. I highly recommend Samantha as she is very understanding, caring, and friendly and she will always keep one updated and offer help will anything were ever to come up. She was also very patient and helpful with my parents who do not speak English as well as I do and I appreciate that a lot because it helped keep everyone updated on what was going on. Overall she’s a great lawyer, and great person and I would definitely recommend her.

- David R.

Samantha Upton represented me and did an excellent job doing so. What was supposed to be 90 in a 65 (RD) she got reduced down to a simple speeding ticket, which is almost unheard of given how strict Henrico judges can be. She was very professional, attentive to my case, and overall made me feel comfortable about the whole process of going into the court room. I would 100% recommend hiring her as your lawyer!

A down-to-earth attorney focused on providing outstanding service
Samantha Upton

Samantha is a person first – but “lawyer” is her chosen profession. She loves her job. Every client has their own unique story and problem to solve. She loves getting to know clients and being the one who stands up for them.

Prior to starting Upton Law, PLLC, Samantha represented clients in traffic and criminal cases as an associate and later a partner with another Richmond law firm. She decided to take that experience and use it to start a firm rooted in her own values: honesty, compassion, and personalization.

Samantha grew up in rural Virginia, figuring every kid bottle-fed calves, snapped beans, and dug up worms for fishing. Eventually, she left home to pursue her dream of being a Wahoo and graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in history. She then headed to University of Richmond with the A.D. Williams Law scholarship for law school.

Outside of work, she enjoys time with her husband, Charlie, and their two dogs – Winston (an Italian greyhound) and Tonka (a yellow lab). She loves history, reading, softball, Zumba, and karaoke. If you spot her outside the courthouse, you’ll most likely catch her enjoying an oversized plate of nachos at an RVA restaurant.
