Justin Spizman represented me in a DUI case in 2014 that was one of the most complicated, emotional and lengthy ordeals of my life. He fought tirelessly for my innocence as if he was defending his own. I can honestly say he also restored my faith in the legal system and people in general. I say this without an ounce of exaggeration. I have had a run of the mill DUI plea attorney represent me in my past who cared little about my rights and justice. I paid an enormous price for that a decade ago. From day one with Hawkins Law firm, the experience could not have been more different and refreshing. Justin called me while on family vacation to discuss my case at length and I immediately felt in good hands. If you are experiencing the terror and anxiety of losing everything you’ve worked so hard for, and are legitimately afraid of going up against the strong arm of DUI law to defend yourself, you will find no other individual and team more dedicated, passionate and knowledgeable to defend you. My own irresponsible mistakes in the past haunted me in my case. Dekalb County tried to use that past against me, but failed miserably. Justin exposed the arresting officer’s lies and inconsistencies with class and finesse. As the trial continued, we were offered several lesser charges by the state, but I declined. I was acquitted on ALL counts, thanks to the hard work and tireless efforts of Mr. Spizman. Words cannot express the gratitude, respect and appreciation I have for not only Mr. Spizman and his brilliant legal expertise and compassion over the last year, but also to his distinguished in-house team of investigators who brought out the truth and the injustices against me. Hawkins Law firm does not advertise and were recommended to me by a good friend at a time when I felt alone and terrified. Like all DUI defendants, my mailbox was overflowing with solicitations from hack DUI lawyers the day after I was released from a traumatic night in jail. I threw them all away and it was the best decision and investment I ever made in myself. If you are looking for a team of passionate DUI experts to represent you and defend all you have worked for, Hawkins Law firm is the one. If you want to plea out and are unwilling to fight and participate in your own defense, you’d best pick one of the several dozen envelopes you received in the mail. There is no comparison.
Justin Spizman came highly recommended from my former college roommate, who's a defense lawyer in another state. He absolutely surpassed my expectations. He was very knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in me and my case. The most important outcome in my case was to get the reduction to reckless driving, regardless of fine, jail time, etc. We got the reduction! He knew exactly what the prosecutor would require me to do in order to plea my case down (i.e. risk reduction school, community service hours, victim impact panel, alcohol evaluation, AA meetings, etc.). I was able to complete everything before my court date. So, by the time court arrived, he got agreement for a plea from the prosecutor, the requirements matched exactly, and because of his advise to complete all, the judge allowed a year's probation to be reduced to two months. I highly recommend Justin and the Hawkins DUI Law Firm to anyone in need.
Justin put me at ease the instant we met. My husbands case was not an easy one to defend due to unusual circumstances but Justin got the result we needed and we are forever grateful to him for working so hard on the case. I hope I do not need a defence attorneys services again but if I do it will be Justin getting the call.
Justin looked after me as a client and as a person with a family. I felt as though he wasn't trying to help me out as only a client, which would have been very "black and white"; my experience was that he actually understood my situation as a person and the responsibilities I have outside of my case. Justin always had my life in mind while helping me, so my case had the least negative impact on my life. My client experience was great and I couldn't be happier with my outcome. I was able to get my sentence reduced and a net outcome of zero points on my license. Back to life without legal problems hanging over my head! Thank You
Justin was very helpful with my case. He was very
Informative and knowledgable. He helped me get a
Reduction to reckless driving instead of a
DUI. I would highly recommend him to others!
He was very honest, trusting and non judge mental... He went above and beyond of what was expected of a lawyer to make sure my son could walk away from his mistake.. He returned phone calls and was very prompted.. Absolutely, if necessary , will put Justin on speed dial.
First and foremost I would like to take the opportunity to thank Mr Spizman for being VERY dedicated and professional to ensure that i was kept inform every step as my case was unfolded during the trial. The outcome of my case was positive results and i wouldn't be able to accomplish such of results without Mr Sipzman.
I definitely would recommend without a question.
Thank you for your support.
I was referred to Justin by a friend, and long story short, I couldn't be happier I chose him to represent me after I was cited with DUI (among other infractions). Justin is very knowledgeable and was glad to answer every question I had about my case and what I could expect. Like a previous post said, he comes across like a good friend who happens to know exactly how the court process works. He clearly laid out all my options and was always available via e-mail, phone, and even text. At every turn I felt like Justin wanted to make sure I completely understood what was going on. The outcome of my case couldn't have turned out better.
Justin Spizman seemed to me that he has been a lawyer for 25+ years. He knew the system and how it would give me the best possible chance to win my case. He called me regularly with anything new and would respond to e-mails and phone calls within a few hours. He was always straight forward about the negatives and positives but gave me great advice on what I should do in the mean time while waiting for my court date. I couldn't have picked a better lawyer and I owe it all to him for the results that were concluded in my case. Thanks again Justin.
Justin Spizman is great. His relations with the Court officials really helped in the end, and made my case go smoothly. Mr. Spizman is very down to earth, so talking to him about anything, is easy, like he has been your friend since college. He is awesome!
