Richard is absolutely the best first and foremost! I had a DUI case that could have honestly gone either way... and after his absolutely stunning representation for me, we came out with the best verdict to hear.... Not guilty. I am so greatful to have had his support througout the trial , and his best effort brought forth every step of the way.
I could have never hoped for anyone better to have on my side! Thank you again Richard!
My 19-year old son was arrested for DUI while attending college in GA. As a parent residing in a different state (FL) and unable to be at my son’s side right away it was a very unsettling feeling. In addition to my son’s immediate needs in dealing with this situation, I was incredibly worried about the long term impact a DUI conviction would have on his future. I was able to speak live to Mr. Lawson minutes after my initial call on a Saturday morning and he provided exceptional guidance. Mr. Lawson grounded me on the process ahead as my son had never been in trouble with the law before this.
Mr. Lawson was always available and incredibly accessible via phone and email to answer any question I might have. More importantly he kept us focused on the process and the ultimate goal of working to get the best possible resolution for my son. As a father I can say that this ordeal is not a sprint but rather a marathon that requires someone with expertise as a DUI prosecutor like Mr. Lawson to navigate through this complicated and life changing event.
The final resolution is that my son received a lesser charge and is spared having a DUI on his record. There are very few people to whom you would entrust a loved one’s future. Mr. Lawson is one of those few. I could not have more impressed with him and pleased with the outcome of our case.
Richard was my first point of contact in seeking a qualified attorney to represent me after being arrested for DUI. He spent time up front on the phone listening to my case, and was very up front about his expertise, as well as his outlook on my case and the pricing structure for the services he and his team offered. He did an excellent job in getting me in touch with his team who ended up representing me. Thanks Richard!
“I received a ticket in the mail for passing a school bus. I called his firm and Richard Lawson personally called me back and told me how to research the ticket and first check to see if there were any points or insurance notifications before I hired an attorney. I did this and there weren't any so I just paid the $300. I highly recommend him for his honesty and fast return phone call.” - CL from Peachtree City
I was charged with disorderly while under influence. And not even given the charge slip, which made me very anxious -- being the first time on the wrong side of law, it was a scary time. Richard personally attended the call, put me to ease and explained the process. He put me in touch with his team on the weekend and arranged for entire process for the next morning hearing. This was very comforting and helped reduce the anxiety levels substantially. His team eventually for my case dismissed and the record expunged, without requiring me to go back to court again. A big thanks.!
I have to say that Mr Lawson is very experienced and will do the job to the T. I had 2 previous DUI's and was a habitual violator with many driving infractions. I got a third with a child endangerment(that would be 4 in 10 felony), finally opened my eyes but really needed the help of a very good attorney. Richard Lawson had 19 years experience and many wonderful reviews. Miracle worker would be an understatement. If you are in need I would most definitely pick this MAN.
Represented my Nephew who was charged with Obstruction of a Law Enforcement Officer, (Misdemeanor) and Possession of Marijuana (Misdemeanor) Richard was able to Plea down to Disorderly Conduct with Fine and Court Cost. Excellent job.
Mr. Lawson was my original contact. After listening to my case and going over legal matters Richard put me with a member of his team to best represent me. Richard and his law firm are here for you, I highly recommend him, or his team!
Mr. Lawson was my initial contact. He spent quite a bit of time on the phone with me the first day discussing the charges in my case and deciding who on his team could best represent me as I was arrested in a different city and county than where I live.
Richard was my initial contact when I first got my DUI. When I first called he spent ample time with me on the phone and was very helpful. He did an excellent job of getting me in touch with his team members in a very fast manor. I highly recommend using Richard for your legal trouble.
