I was beside myself! 2 other lawyers would not take my injury case because it appeared that both myself and the other driver were equally at fault. When I spoke to other lawyers, I didn't feel like they were listening. Mr. Paisley listened and he truly believed what I was telling him. He got the accident report, and he kept asking me to re-tell him the scenario. I could see the motors going in his head, and finally he told me something didn't seem right about the case. He took the time to personally find the officer in my case and call him up. Come to find out, and I had no idea, the other driver was arrested at the scene for DUI. He was drunk, and this was not listed on the accident report. This broke open my injury case, and I was able to recover the maximum amount available because Mr. Paisley listened to me and took the time to help. He is my lawyer for life.

Thanks to Mr Paisley and his assistant Alex i am now back on the road with a valid DL. I had no clue how or where to start in getting my citations resolved. I live in California and the tickets i had were in Georgia it would have been EXTREMELY expensive to fly out and handle them my self. When i contacted Mr Paisley he assured me that he would help me take care of this and that was exactly what he did!

Three months before my boyfriend turned 21, he got a speeding ticket going 120 in a 65mph. Because he was under 21, we were told he would lose his license and possibly do some time in jail. I called 7 lawyers and offices. I was told the same thing over and over. Until I called Attorney Paisley. He was extremely understanding and knowledgeable. I remember he called the prosecutors by name and some of the judges. He told me he could make sure he kept his license by asking for a continuance until after he turned 21. He recommended my boyfriend do a defensive driving class, write an essay over it, and do 30 or more hours of community service before the court date. He did, and he kept his license, paid only $300 fine, and his ticket was reduced to 84 in a 65. No insurance increases! I was amazed by Attorney Paisley's work for us and absolutely thrilled with the outcome. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with any sort of traffic ticket.

This attorney knew the law and exactly how to negotiate with the solicitor for a better than expected outcome. He is more than fair and handled this case with the upmost professionalism. I truly believe you would be hard pressed to find a better attorney.

I was terrified over the implication with my license after I got a speed ticket in Atlanta, GA.. I am from California, and here we deal differently with traffic tickets. I looked up online and I found Mr. Paisley. I hired him in few min. after we had a short conversation. He represented me in court, and my case was dismissed. Mr. Paisley is an excellent attorney. Thank you.

I hired James for a 2nd in 5 DUI and was terrified over the implications with my license and possible jail time. In addition i didn't recognize that i had other serious problems in my life. James knew the system so well he made sure I was never without my license. When the case finally went to court 2 years later, he found a technicality that resulted in the case being dismissed. I was not happy to "get off," but accepted this as a sign from God. He also help be get treatment for the issues I was going through and helped me get through that tough period without losing everything. Thank you so much James!

My case was a special one. I forgot a had left my firearm in my bag when I went into a store in N. Georgia. I was stopped and investigated for nothing other than being a black man. They detained me and arrested me for no reason and then found the firearm in my bag. They couldn't charge me with anything else other than the weapon. Mr. Paisley files motions to throw the case out because I was searched without reason or cause. He won the motion for me and the case was dismissed. Thank you Mr. Paisley - you were a true blessing.

i was referred to this attorney for my criminal DUI case and most lawyers before told me I would be going to jail. Mr Paisley researched many legal issues, kept me informed, helped me learn a lot and finally he found a way to get most of the evidence thrown out. After the the judge threw the evidence out the prosecutor dropped the case. I would have lost my job, and my livlihood if it was not for this man.
