Words cannot describe the experience that I had with Ben but I will try my best to put it on paper.
I was pulled over for a traffic stop which ended up with a field sobriety test , arrest, and breath test at the police station. At the station, I was registered with a .138 and .123 blood alcohol level. This was my first experience in my lifetime of a DUI and it was terrifying to say the least. The following day after I was released, I immediately did research on various lawyers including e-mails. Within a couple of hours, my phone rings and I have a chance to speak with Ben. He offered to have a consultation and we met very shortly thereafter.
When I met Ben, he was a very "down to earth" guy and explained my case concisely and had already formulated a plan to take this case to trial. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge of the legal system and specifically DUI cases. I had a feeling I would end up sticking with Ben, but I had not had the chance to speak with any other lawyers and wanted to explore my options. Throughout the week, I consulted with approximately 5 different lawyers in person and various lawyers over the phone (including George Stein and other highly visible lawyers in the area). I ultimately felt the most comfortable with Ben, which in my opinion is very important to the decision, and decided to proceed forward with him.
Throughout our discussions, there was not one point in time where he was thinking about aiming for a plea bargain. We moved forward with the ultimate goal of taking it to trial and clearly laying out the facts of the case and the errors in the arrest/prosecution. Based on some of my conversations with other lawyers, the blood alcohol content alone caused an allergic reaction, but this was not the case at all with Ben. It is very important that the prosecutor knows the intent of your lawyer and also to ensure you have a lawyer who will clearly try the case. Ben's reputation in Cobb County speaks for itself and the prosecutor clearly knew this case was going to be handled in a trial.
We went to various calendar calls for a trial date and went as far as the motions hearing to present evidence for both parties in the case. Prior to the motions hearing, I get news that the prosecutor does not want to take this to trial and the charges have been reduced to a wreckless driving. This was ABSOLUTELY a wonderful resolution to the case and I cannot be happier.
I would recommend Ben to friends, family's, or anyone at all that needs a helping hand in a dire situation.
My only gripe is that Ben is a University of Georgia fan (kidding of course!). I feel as I will continue to stay in contact with Ben even outside of the legal world.
Hands down the best lawyer in Georgia!

I was in good hands with Ben Sessions. He did a great job of walking me through the process early on and letting me know that I would have to be comfortable with some ambiguity as everything unfolded. From the beginning I felt like he was personally invested in my case. At the end of the day, he helped me make an informed decision about how to best proceed and the result was extremely positive.

Ben was able to get my DUI charge reduced to reckless driving, my license back with no suspension or reduction in driving privilege, and even a reduced probation period. His relationship with the prosecutors and officer was critical, and he is very knowledgeable in this area of the law. I would recommend using Ben to anyone who needs help with a tough situation.

I recently had a reason to find a DUI attorney and was fortunate enough to find Ben Sessions. He was extremely thorough in his handling of the case. He researched and knew all of the information regarding my case. As a result I was acquitted.
If you ever need a DUI attorney look no further. Ben is the one.

Ben spent the required time and then some to understand the majijuana DUI charge against my son. He was not only extremely professional but extremely personable in his approach with my son and I. Ben did his homework and worked diligently to make sure that every action of the arresting officer was scrutinized to the 10th degree. He was able to secure a dismissal in my son's case and I higly recommend Ben! He is not only an excellent attorney, but an advocate and friend.

The minute I met with Ben I knew he could do the job because he has a quality about him that is very reassuring. He is a genuinely nice laid back guy. He will go out of his way to make sure that he has done everything he can for you and your case. Over the past 21 months Ben fought and fought and fought for my case. We had a very tough judge who shot down every motion that he made and the solicitor’s office would not work with us on a deal. Through this entire proceeding Ben was as polite as possible to the judge, the solicitor's office/attorneys, the arresting police officer and pretty much everyone involved in the case. The 21 months leading up to the trial was filled with Ben preparing the case, while the solicitor’s attorneys just sat back and made us sweat by holding jail time over my head thinking they had this case in the bag. After all of the grinning and baring it we finally went to trial. This is when having Ben on your side really shows. Ben shredded their argument and he won the jury over with easy to relate to personality. He is so nice, that when he is making the opposition look like a fool you can’t help but agree with him. There is no other lawyer that could have done what he did for me. I am so thankful that I found Ben to be my lawyer. At the end of it all I was glad that the ordeal was over, but at the same time something felt amiss. I figured out later that it was because I would not be seeing Ben anymore.

When I called Ben for help with my son's DUI, he was able to see us that same day. He realized we were scared not only because we did not know how the system worked but also because of the implications of this charge. He was very upfront and extremely knowledgable. He helped us make decisions without making them for us. He researched every aspect my son's DUI charge. The case he presented was meticulously planned and so well presented. The jury could tell that he genuinely cared about my son and this case. It took them only 15 minutes to come back with a "not guilty'!!! All I can say is that we were so lucky to have found such an amazing lawyer.

During one of the most horrifying periods of ours lives when we needed someone that was knowledgeable, understanding, compassionate, and professional, Ben was there. We needed someone who not only understood the law, but understood the nuances of a criminal system in a small county that boasts its conviction rates. I was charged with an offense for permitting someone that was charged with DUI to drive my car. The state had to prove its case of DUI against the driver, in order to prove it's case against me. Ben took the time to understand us as people and advocated on our behalf. He understood that the stakes were high because, we weren't only concerned with our driver's licenses, but the affect of such charges on our individual careers. Ben didn't shy away from the challenge. He went to work and successfully exposed the state's problems with it's case. He ultimately negotiated a dismissal of the charges against me and a reduction of the DUI to a lessor charge for the driver after the motion. He comes highly recommended!!!

First off let me say that Ben is definitely not at all what I expected in a lawyer when the decision was made to hire him. He was kind, considerate & genuinely concerned about my situation. His office kept me very well informed up until the date of the trial and his staff are very professional & friendly. On the date of the trial Ben (Mr. Sessions) was extremely professional & seemed to be looking forward to go to battle for me. And that he did, and he was amazing! Don't let the nice guy fool you because when the bulldog comes out, he means business. We won the case and am very thankful to this day that I chose him & not another attorney as I can safely say I don't think things would have turned out as well as they did had I gone with someone else. Mr. Sessions has my highest recommendation.
