A Northern Virginia General Law Practice

The Law Offices of Jonathan Y. Short, P.C., provides a range of skilled legal services to individuals and businesses throughout northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Clients are counseled and represented by a hard-working attorney who is committed to your best interests — legally and financially.

I have been practicing in Virginia and Washington, D.C. for 25 years. As a solo practitioner, you don’t have to be concerned about being passed off to a paralegal or junior associate. I handle your legal matter myself, from the initial consultation through resolution.

Criminal defense is a large part of my practice. I have defended clients on DWI (DUI), traffic violations, assault and battery, trespassing and other misdemeanors, as well as serious felony charges of felonious assault, drug crimes, sexual battery, rape and burglary. But I am a general practice lawyer who can capably handle a wide spectrum of legal matters: divorce and custody/child support disputes, consumer law and debtor representation, small business law, personal injury claims, estate planning and estate administration.

Discover How I Can Help

I have a solid reputation with prosecutors and judges as an effective criminal defense lawyer, and I receive many referrals from past clients and other attorneys who vouch for my skills and commitment:

  • I have a reputation as a formidable trial lawyer, and I will take cases to a jury when the alternative is unacceptable.
  • I strive to be accessible to my clients. You can reach me 24/7, and I return your phone calls or e-mails promptly.
  • I pride myself on being an ethical attorney. I will tell you if you don’t need a lawyer. I won’t pad my fees or recommend a dead-end course of action to take your money. I believe in giving my clients honest answers about their situation so they can make informed decisions and prepare for any outcome.
  • I take the time to listen and explain. I am a detail-oriented professional who works to achieve your goals and put you in the best legal position. This means exploring all your options and not merely taking the easy or obvious path.

I welcome you to contact my law office for a consultation to discuss your matter and how my skills and experience can help. Evening, weekend and off-site appointments are available.

My office is conveniently located one block from the Eisenhower Metro and easily accessible from the Washington beltway. Off-street parking is available.
