Jonathan Preston Fisher

Jonathan Preston Fisher: Attorney with The Fisher Law Firm, P.C.

Biography

Jonathan was born and raised in Fairlawn, VA. He graduated from Virginia Tech in 1998 with a Bachelor’s Degree in history, and immediately enrolled at the Penn State – Dickinson School of Law, where he graduated in 2001. He was the only member of his law school class to immediately open his own solo practice after passing the bar. To gain as much experience as possible he immediately joined the court appointed lists in his and all surrounding jurisdictions, and within several years had defended nearly 1,000 criminal felonies and misdemeanors. His attention to clients and good results soon resulted in more retained criminal work generated by word of mouth. During his first five years of practice Jonathan also gained extensive experience in the areas of workers’ compensation and family law.

In 2006 he turned his full attention to criminal defense, with an emphasis in DUI and traffic defense. For a time he continued to work as a solo, and personally appeared on traffic and criminal matters in jurisdictions from Fairfax County to Wise County in the Southwest corner of the state. To date he has personally defended more than 15,000 criminal and traffic cases. In the last few years the Fisher Law Firm has experienced significant growth, now having two additional offices and eight additional associate attorneys. By 2014 Jonathan had achieved his long term goal of offering criminal and traffic coverage to the entire Commonwealth.

Jonathan is an active member of the National College for DUI Defense and the Virginia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, where he regularly participates and contributes in order to learn and help other attorneys whenever he can. He is a certified alcohol breath device operator and is also certified in administration of the standardized field sobriety tests as set out in the NHTSA guidelines.

      Mr. Fisher is what I call a "lawyer's lawyer." Jonathan is always ready to jump in to assist other lawyers with practice and strategic questions. He's active on the list servers and is a frequent contributor. If you can't teach it, you can;t put it into practice, and his willingness to step up and share his knowledge with a bunch of other highly skilled (and in the case of DUI defense, REALLY highly skilled) lawyers shows that he knows his stuff.

      Jonathan Fisher is a very thorough and competent legal counsel who always had my best interests in mind. In my first conversation with him he was very clear as to what he could do for me, not giving any false hopes. He said he would try his best, and he certainly did! He achieved the best possible outcome for my case, which was beyond my expectations. I was charged with a dui and refusal involved in a crash. I pleaded guilty on the refusal and got the dui dropped to a reckless. Read less

      I am 20 years old and was on my way to Virginia Beach to see my husband who had just joined the navy. I lost focus and was clocked going 97 miles per hour in a 60 zone in Appomattox County and charged with reckless driving. I made the long trip to court and when there the judge told me since a jail sentence was possible on this criminal reckless driving charge, I could get a lawyer. I asked for a court appointed lawyer due to finances, but none was available that day and I was going to have t Read less
