Parker is an excellent and compassionate attorney. He took the time I needed to help me consider all issues and helped me make an informed decision and weigh all options. He was always very responsive and demonstrated professionalism at all times. I would highly recommend Mr. McFarland.
While this was not a serious case per se', I have unfortunately had a checkered past. I had Rafe represent me for a DUI over 12 years ago.
This was a case of a misguided "Aggressive Driving" charge, and Rafe was booked. I retained Parker McFarland of this firm after reviewing his history, and I could not be more satisfied.
IN FACT, I would definitely just hire Parker next time!! Nothing against Rafe, he is an excellent attorney. I was just THAT HAPPY with Mr. McFarland!
I promise you will not be dissatisfied!!
This was my first time having to retain a lawyer and I was pleasantly surprised with the process. Mr. Mcfarland was courteous and professional throughout the case. He took time to explain the entire process and answer any questions that I had. He was easy to contact and always answered in a timely fashion leaving me assured that my case( although simple) was a priority.
Mr. McFarland has given us the highest quality of representation and services. We are so fortunate to have found Mr. McFarland. A very genuine, honest and caring attorney who cares for his clients needs. Mr. McFarland has helped my daughter with a DUI case along with several other charges. He is by far the best!
No one ever wants to need an attorney and like so many I became someone who did. As a middle aged medical professional my background was perfect until 2012. Then I encountered 2 different arrests within 4 months of each other. A DUI and Felony theft drug charges.I was facing 8 years in prison just for the drug charges alone !
Parker's passion for this profession is why I hired him. This gentleman truly has your best interest at heart and will fight to the bitter end to protect it. The energy he displays to fight for you is worth his weight in gold. Never has a day gone by when he wasn't available to guide me through a process, answer a question or just listen to my concerns. The outcome of my cases are such that I'm writing this from home and not prison !! I still have a wonderful life because of Parker's efforts and wouldn't hesitate for a second to give his number to anyone in need. As a matter of fact call (770) 889-2522 if you need the best representation ever !

The law offices of McFarland and McFarland were excellent lawyers. Their expertise and dedication to me as a client allowed me to understand my case ;when I had no idea what to do and during a very stressful moment of my life where I had no one to turn to. Parker was there, making me feel safe and informed. Parker did an amazing job taking time analyzing my case, and provided me with answers I didn't even know The questions to. He was there every step of the way, and showed he really did care. In my opinion there is no better lawyer that you can get than Parker McFarland. Because of him, I was able to prove my case even when it seemed all was lost. Parker proved to me that justice is not blind and neither is God. If you have a choice to decide which law firm is right for you, take a moment and see that McFarland and McFarland are lawyers that get the job done, but they also do it by caring about you, your family and your life. Bless Parker and all his hard working staff. In my personal opinion, they are, will be and have proven they are the best. Thank you guys and tha k you Parker.

Mr. McFarland was great to work with and did a magnificent job as my attorney. He stood behind me and supported me throughout the case. He told me the exact steps I needed to be doing throughout the process. After he heard my story behind the arrest, he knew the exact steps to take in order to get my DUI reduced down to reckless driving. He hired a sobriety expert witness who was able to prove to the prosecutor that I was not deserving of a DUI. Not only did I get the charge dropped down to reckless driving, but I was not sentenced to any probation or jail time. I would recommend Mr. McFarland to anyone in need of an attorney and believe he is the BEST attorney at what he does.

I can not say enough about my positive experience with Parker McFarland. As once can imagine, I was very nervous, anxious and fearful throughout the period between my DUI arrest and the final sentencing. Parker was there every step of the way, answering any and all of my questions/concerns, keeping me informed, handling all necessary paperwork, etc. The administrative charge against my license was dismissed, so I was able to keep my license through the entire process. Parker worked diligently to work with the prosecutor to negotiate the charges, and subsequently was able to get my DUI charge reduced so that it didn't become a conviction on my permanent criminal record. I definitely would not hesitate to recommend Parker to anyone in need of an attorney.

In April 2012 I managed to get myself into some trouble after wrecking my car. I was then charged with two counts of DUI for both "less safe" and "over the limit" as well as "failure to maintain lane" and "striking a fixed object(street sign)" I faced a high blood test which was enough for most lawyers to say i was as good as guilty especially in Gwinnett County, GA. I then interviewed several lawyers and received responses from "just plead guilty, you have no chance" to "don't worry about it just sign and pay here and well take care of it(for 10x the money I paid)" Fortunately through a friend of a friend(who also received favorable results in his case) I was referred to Parker McFarland. I spoke with Parker on the phone and then set an appointment to discuss my case.
From the time I spoke with Parker until my case was resolved yesterday I was continuously impressed with Parker and his staff in their experience and how my case was handled. In that first meeting Parker thoroughly broke down my case presenting me with his initial observations, giving me several options and answered all my questions(good or bad). Parker explained exactly what his fees were from standard rates(same as my friend paid) with no surprise charges through the process. I proceeded to hire Parker for my case and we began a 20 month legal process.
While working through the process Parker was very informed on my case, thoroughly prepared for each court date/meeting and spent all the time I needed explaining my options, answering questions and helping me make decisions in my case. Never was a meeting or phone call rushed or was I pushed to end the case early. His experience in all of the courts processes was very clear. Parker and his staff kept me very informed about what was happening in front of and behind the scenes in my case and were available anytime I needed to talk with them.
Eventually my case ended up in Gwinnett County State Court which is where Parker worked his magic. After discussing several strategies our primary goal was to eliminate the blood test results as evidence against me using a mistake the officer had made during the arrest process. We proceeded to a motions hearing where the officers were called to the stand and Parker expertly dueled with the prosecutor. As a result of this hearing our motion was granted by the judge(which is rare in Gwinnett) and therefore the DUI charge of over the limit was thrown out.
After this great news we still did not receive any acceptable offers from the state for a reduced sentence(again typical in Gwinnett) and therefore were forced to continue to trial to fight the remaining DUI less safe charge. Trial came up a few months later and again Parker demonstrated great courtroom presence through the process of picking a jury, opening statements, questioning witnesses, and finally closing statements. All the while all I had to do was sit and watch while virtually everything was handled by Parker. Parker was impressively thorough with his preparation for the trial as well as ability to adapt strategies to what the prosecution presented us. After a 30 minute deliberation the jury returned and presented us with the best thing that could have possibly come out of the situation with Not Guilty!!! to any count of DUI.
After the trial I was presented with a relative slap on the hand for the traffic violations I incurred and pleaded guilty to with NO DUI on my record, NO arrest record and NO loss of license. The evidence is clear in in Parker's abilities when the Judge commented on the gift I was given from having a great lawyer and even one of the Jurors coming to ask for a business card after it was all over.
I cannot thank Parker enough for his help with this process in making sure that my mistakes did not effect my Job, Insurance, driving or anything else in my life. While I hope that nobody needs his services I would not hesitate to highly recommend Parker McFarland if you do.

Parker McFarland is an excellent attorney. He showed exceptional preparedness in my case and was upfront and honest throughout the entire process. I have referred him to my friends in need and would do so again.
