Rex FlynnRex focuses his practice exclusively in criminal defense. He firmly believes client-centered representation. As such, the client’s needs are the primary driver of the course of litigation. Once the client’s needs and wishes are established, Rex Flynn will zealously work (with integrity) to obtain the desired result, often with innovative solutions.

Governor of Diversity), the Honor Committee and as an editor for the Journal of Law, Economics and Policy.  Rex is also a proud alum of his beloved Hampton University, where he studied psychology, and was involved in the Concert Choir.  As an attorney, Rex is a member of several bar associations where he practices, and has served on the Board of Directors for the Arlington County Bar Association.

Rex also gives back to the community in service organizations as well.  He  serves as the President of both the Arlington County Bar Association, and the Northern Virginia Black Attorney’s Association (NOVABAA) where he also chairs the Judicial Selection Committee.   Rex was selected as  SuperLawyer 2019 Rising Star and as a Leader in the Law by Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly in 2020.   In his spare time, Rex enjoys cheering for his beloved NY Knicks, his hometown Redskins, and playing with his dog Bam Bam.  If you or someone you care about has been accused of a crime or is in need of legal assistance, contact the Flynn Law Firm.  We are an African American law firm with 11 years of experience.  You deserve to be represented by an attorney that you trust and that will fight for you to the very end.  Give us a call today for a free consultation.
