Otis K. Forbes, III
“I look at each case in detail, and turn every stone, to get the best outcome for my clients.”
Otis Forbes has been practicing law in Virginia for more than 30 years, working in courtrooms throughout Hampton Roads. While his local experience and legal expertise are what brings clients into his office, it is Otis’s exceptional calm and patient demeanor that offers them immediate relief.
“I try to slow things down for my clients. The charges they are facing are serious. I take time with my clients and help them understand the process and how the system is set up.”
Otis practices exclusively in criminal and traffic law. He walks his clients through complicated legal process and helps them understand the charges they are facing, what the potential consequences are and what options are available to them.
“A traffic offense is not a simple charge. The fines and penalties of traffic law can pile up and be devastating. I help my clients break out of – or avoid getting into – a negative cycle.”
