    Professional and focused on Family

    When I found myself in an unfortunate DUI, Speeding and Marijuana possession situation, I called Richard Lawson. He promptly returned my call and gave me my options and never judged me. He treated me kindly and professionally and he and his staff delivered on all of my primary objectives. They got my DUI reduced to Reckless Driving, They got the Speeding dismissed, and the possession dismissed with minimal conditions. Mr. Lawson and his staff are absolutely top-notch, and most importantly, they care about their clients and their families. I truly recommend Richard and his team to any family that has one of their own in such a predicament. If you want to work with family-focused people whose goals are to help protect your family, then this is the law-firm for you!

    Juvenile DUI dismissed

    Attorney Richard Lawson personally handled our case. He was able to have additional charges reduced from the accident as well a dismissed DUI charge for a minor under the age of 18. What totally sets Mr. Lawson apart from other attorneys is his customer service and actual involvement in his cases. He maintains direct contact and provides direction as well as status throughout the entire situation. No one wants things like this to happen, but when it does, I would recommend you obtain the best defense attorney you can that will direct and assist you to your own best personal outcome.

    Richard Lawson is a very brilliant, efficient, organized lawyer who cares tremendously for his employees before, during, and after court appearances. Even after working with him on my issue, he continues to answer his phone and respond immediately to any questions or concerns on important documents for employment such as job licenses or certifications. He helps you in a timely manner and has all documentation ready and organized for you at all times. He continues to remain in close contact with his employees and is a truly genuine person to work with. I highly recommend him as your lawyer.

    Thank you!!! Highly Recommendation!!

    I can't say enough good things about Richard. I have a busy, traveling job and he helped make sure there weren't any interruptions.

    Also, he made sure my prioritis were known and got me a great, reduced charge.

    Also, after the court date, he continued to be responsive and helpful.

    Excellent DUI Representation

    I am so thankful that I chose Richard Lawson as my attorney. I was consumed with fear/anxiety and he kindly baby stepped me through everything. After continued calls he never got frustrated and always listened and was comforting. His expertise and experience helped to carry me through the whole process.

    Mr. Lawson was able to reduce my DUI sentence to a reckless driving. This meant the absolute world to me, as I was extremely concerned with what a DUI would mean for my future with my current employer. I will be able to keep my job which has eliminated an immense amount of stress and worry of my plate. In hindsight, I am very pleased with my decision to be represented by Mr. Lawson an would choose him 10x over if ever in this situation again!

    You need this lawyer

    I called Richard Lawson's office on a referral from a friend due to a DUI charge. Richard responded to any calls or emails I sent immediately, gave me a clear timeline of the things I needed to act on right away, and worked with me to break down the fees due into a few smaller payments so I could afford to hire the qualified lawyer I needed. He and his partner Kimberly Berry were able to clear me of the charges altogether. Both are very knowledgeable people and made a huge difference in my life by taking on my case and investing as much time as needed to see that I received the best outcome possible. I highly recommend anyone to hire either of these two (and have already recommended to a friend) for anything you may need.

    Excellent defense attorney

    Fisrt off, my situation - arrested for DUI (.29!!) and possesion of a small amount of marijuana, failure to maintain lane etc.

    I did an internet search first thing once I was released from my initial pickup.
    Mr Lawson's practice showed the highest rankings for the offense as well as a solid history in the area of my infractions.
    The initial call was courteous and enlightening with the team getting on the immediate concerns of preserving my license.

    Prior to the motion hearing Mr Lawson worked diligently with the prosecution to refine the charges into a best case scenario for me, we discussed the terms and conditions and moved forward to the hearing - he answered all my legal questions in solid and informative terms that were digestible even by a non lawyer.

    The day of the hearing, Mr Lawson surprised me... He was hands down the most professional and well prepared lawyer in a room of 30 or so lawyers, he had three cases that day and each were obviously well represented. I can't stress enough how professional/prepared he came across compared to many others in the court room.

    During my specific motion call, Mr Lawson could tell I was getting very anxious (I have acute social anxiety at times of high stress) and helped me be reassuring me and generally went out of his way to make sure I knew it was going to be ok, things were going well etc (this one to me hits home - he didn't have to do this, he cared enough to add that extra bit!).

    End of the day I essentially got the best case scenario for my offenses with no additional jail time other than my initial pick up and with no loss of driving ability.

    This certainly exceeded my expectations in the matter and I'd heartily recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.

    Amazing Lawyer!

    I was arrested for DUI, Reckless Driving and Failure to to Obey Traffic Control Device. I hired Richard and his team to represent me. Richard and his team did an AMAZING job in getting me the most favorable outcome possible. My DUI was reduced to Reckless Driving and all of my other charges were dismissed, and I never had to go on probation. I work as a contractor with the local government and my job was in jeopardy. Thank you Richard for getting such a great outcome. You saved my life and career.

    Best decision you can make after a DUI

    I would recommend Richard in a heartbeat to anybody facing a DUI charge. After receiving my DUI in Roswell this January with an extremely BAC and some prior alcohol-related arrests, I was extremely scared what I was facing. Within hours after getting arrested, Richard returned my phone call and set up a plan for me to follow. In as little as 2 months he was able to get my case settled, and I am able to move on with my life. I faced the judge today and Richard fought hard to get me the minimum consequences: 40 hours community service, a fine, easy non-reporting probation, and I never lost a day of driving through this whole ordeal. I cannot put a price tag on the lesson taken from this experience that has forever changed my life, and I am so thankful to Richard for having a large impact on that and making this experience as easy as possible. I can assure that I will never be in this situation again, but I will keep Richard's number in my phone for any friend or family member who finds themselves in an unfortunate situation. Thank you Richard for putting me at ease and saving me from the very serious consequences I was facing!!
