I wad very happy with our out come from my husbands case, mr lawson was able to keep him from going to jail even though he had a previous DUI and other chargers. Also he was very quick with responding to my emails and calls. I would recommend him to any one with a court case for 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!!
Richard did an outstanding job representing me. I had a tough case with a lot going against me but Richard laid out a practical plan for me to follow and the results were better than I had imagined they could be. Along the way I was able to get prompt and thorough responses to all my questions. He left the door open for me to contact me at anytime. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case, especially under the circumstances. His knowledge as a prosecutor was clearly an advantage in my defense and when we came before the judge. I could not have asked for a better legal representative than Richard and I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a DUI. Outstanding in every respect.
I live in the Northeast and was visiting Georgia for a friend’s wedding.
On the night of the celebration, I was arrested for Driving Under the Influence after being stopped at a Roadblock/Field Sobriety Checkpoint.
I went back home and contacted his Law office.
He was my initial contact, he spent time with me on the phone listening to my case. He did an excellent job in getting you in touch with his team, and providing excellent representation.
So happy I did!
He was able to get the DUI reduced to Reckless Driving.
He was able to handle my case and resolve it for me without me having to come back to Georgia.
He saved me thousands of dollars on air travel, hotels, time away from work.
An amazing outcome.
Appreciate all his help and the active role he played in my case. You are a great attorney and I couldn't be happier!
he was my initial contact. He spent time with me on the phone and listening to my case. He did an excellent job in getting me in touch with his team. I don't have word to explain how amazing this firm is.
Mr. Lawson is outstanding in his expertise, knowledge, responsiveness, and supportiveness. He called me back promptly on each of the several instances that I contacted him with questions. He always provided very knowledgeable clear responses to my questions. These clear answers helped reduce my confusion, which then helped reduce my level of stress . He found subject matter experts whose assistance helped greatly in the outcome of my case. He skillfully negotiated with the prosecuting attorney in a way that overcame possible political factors. He was consistently very supportive to me as a person during a very challenging life situation. The outcome of my case
would almost certainly have been much less positive without Mr. Lawson's help.
As a recently retired executive I was extremely concerned about a DUI arrest I had in Georgia. I found Richard Lawson via the internet and what a fortunate stroke of good luck. Mine was a complicated case that Richard handled with confidence and expertise. The charges were dropped to a reckless driving fine and I suffered no loss of driving privileges. I can not recommend Richard high enough. I my opinion it would be foolish to go anywhere else for representation.
Mr. Lawson responded to my call with an hour of sending him an email requesting his services. He took the time to discuss my case with me and point me in the right direction. I highly recommend his law firm.
My. Lawson was able to get my DUI reduced to reckless driving and my drivers license was returned.
I highly recommend Mr. Lawson.
Richard was recommended by my local attorney for a DUI case in North Georgia. He was informative of my options but realistic as I blew over a 2.2. We hoped to reduce the DUI to a Reckless Driving but it was a long shot given the breathalyzer results. I've never been in trouble with "the law" and hoped that would help my case. Upon meeting Richard the day of court I noticed he knew most of the other attorneys and the court's prosecutor. After a quick personal interview and review of the police report, he quickly formulated plan and, using his relationships and negotiating skills, worked out the best possible outcome. The judge reduced the DUI to Reckless Driving, I got my license back and paid the minimal fine. Excellent job Richard!
