About me

Mickey Roberts has been practicing law since 1980 and is a member of the State Bar of Georgia as well as the Gwinnett County Bar.   A native of Gwinnett County, a suburb of Atlanta, GA., he graduated from Mercer University cum laude, attended Woodrow Wilson College of Law, and at the age of 23, established his law firm. He was the Judge for the City of Lilburn for 15 years before retiring in 1997.  Mickey Roberts was also the Judge for the City of Suwanee for 14 years before retiring in December, 2000.

Since 1995, his law practice has been limited to aggressively defending persons wrongly accused of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs, vehicular homicide, and other traffic related crimes.

Mickey Roberts is recognized by judges and his peers as a leading DUI Defense lawyer in the State of Georgia, and counties within the metropolitan Atlanta area. Mickey Roberts obtained one of the most favorable defense appellate decisions in Georgia, State v. Tousley (involving the admission of the HGN field test). He is a member of the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD), as well as Defense of Drinking Drivers (DODD), an exclusive invitation-only association of DUI Defense Attorneys. Mr. Roberts is also a regular speaker at DUI Defense Seminars, and the author of several DUI Defense articles.

Since January 1996, his record shows more than 90% of the contested DUI’s Mickey Roberts has handled have resulted in a not guilty verdict, a dismissal, or a plea to a lesser offense.

  • G. Jason Thompson

    Mickey has been practicing DUI defense longer than anyone in Gwinnett County and fights hard for his clients. He is well liked by not only his peers in the criminal defense community, but prosecutors and judges as well. I highly endrose him.

  • Douglas Warren McDonald Jr.

    Mickey Roberts is one of the most "connected" lawyers in Metro Atlanta. Mickey is known as a tough adversary in the court room by all prosecutors. Mickey has tried over 100 cases to verdict and has the respect of all Judges in this State. Mickey is able to get more dismissals than any other lawyer in metro Atlanta. If you want a dismissal or Not Guilty verdict and if you can afford him (worth it) he is the lawyer for you. gus mcdonald
