I had 3 pending DUI cases within one year with a previous DUI 4 years prior. I originally sought legal advise from a local attorney with little hope for a positive outcome for my pending cases. Rick, on the other hand, was willing to work hard on my behalf with each case. One DUI was dropped completely and I am happy with the results of the other DUIs. Rick and his team are excellent. They will keep you informed, help you in every aspect of your case and they sincerely care about the clients overall well-being and outcome of the case(s). The Ryczek Firm has been a Godsend for me and I refer him to everyone.

I had two DUIs and Rick was able to get one completely dismissed. I plea guilty to wreckless driving on the 2nd case. I had to be on probation, but it helped me keep my job and not get fired. All the other lawyers tole me that my case was hopeless but Rick worked harder than the other lawyers. I don't know what I would have done with out him.

I would NOT recommend Rick Ryczek to anyone! He took my DUI case and said that he had a pretty good chance of having it thrown out because of the missing audio tape of the arrest. I lived in Atlanta at the time but had a California driver's license. He gave me wrong information in terms of what would happen in BOTH Atlanta and California, plus he misrepresented himself.
Needless to say, this DUI took place in 2008 - Rycek dragged this out until December 2010 at which I had already returned to California in 2009. Had to fly back to Atlanta for the court date in December 2010 while I was pregnant with my first baby - he made the judge mad and kept repeating himself. Basically, he should have told me that I had no case and kept my $1500 investigation fee back in 2008 but instead got me to pay him an additional $2500 to continue to get it thrown out. Right before I flew to Atlanta - he had no plan of attack in front of the judge and basically told me to plead guilty. This has costs me fees and classes in BOTH STATES... and has now cost me a JOB.
I also was rushed to the hospital flying home from this and went into labor early - luckily my baby was okay but had to be on bed rest for the remaining 3 months of term.
If I were you, find another attorney there in Atlanta as he his not worth it. I too, thought he would be good due to the reviews but I was wrong. He even didn't return phone calls the two years til the court date.

Richard was very well prepared for the case. He researched information for this case and it was a wealth of knowledge and the trial was to our favor thanks to how prepared he was. Wonderful and caring person, really cares for his clients.

I came to Rick to get some help and advice on a personal matter. For a young man his age he is far beyond his years in wisdom. His advice was grounded, thoughtful, and right on target. I consider him my family lawyer from now on.

With his experience, connections, and dedication, Rick has always been able to obtain favorable results or decisions in my cases.

Excellent lawyer and firm as a whole! Rick himself is responsive; he follows up and follows through! I will recommend The Ryczek Firm to anyone I know with legal disputes! He was helpful, patient and had lovely assistants!
Thank You Rick!

I was arrested for driving without headlights, DUI, and fleeing and alluding a police officer. I was EXTREMELY frightened of what consequences such charges might mean for my career and my future.
A prominent Personal Injury/Wrongful Death attorney in Atlanta recommended I call Rick ASAP, stating he was the best DUI attorney in town. I have a very type A personality and Rick was always patient when answering my questions, and kept me in the loop on the goings-on with the case and what the next steps were. Rick pulled 'rabbits out of his hat' throughout the entire process, which kept me consistently encouraged.
To cut to the chase, in the Motions Hearing, Rick was able to get not ONE but ALL of my charges thrown out and the ENTIRE case DISMISSED! His work is second to none and he comes with my highest recommendation!

Although I can only speak from personal experience, it's my impression that Rick puts his best in every case. I was referred to Rick by a lawyer who handles legal issues for the company I work for. It seems Rick has an excellent reputation among his peers, as well. I trusted that the recommendation was a good one, and it proved to be true. Rick has also taken the time out of his busy schedule to assist me on other legal matters, not affiliated with the one I selected him for originally. It just shows that Rick is concerned about his clients and wants what's best for them. He is a man of integrity.

I was arrested for DUI and running a stop sign in north Georgia. The police report indicated that I failed all of the roadside tests. After retaining Rick Ryczek, I got my driver's license back, no points on my record, and the prosecutor declined to prosecute the case. I would recommend Mr. Ryczek to any DUI defendant without hesitation.
