Richard is the best of the best when it comes to DUI cases. This was my 3ed DUI in less than 10 years. It was only through his work that I received no jail time. He is very prompt to answer all calls and explain options. I guess what I told the judge say it all, " Your honer you have been more than fair" This was all Richards doing.

Richard provided outstanding service in an extremely long DUI case lasting over a year. In that time I was only required to return to the state of Georgia twice, once for sentencing and a second time at my request to reduce the impact of a potential second DUI within ten years in my home state. He was respectful and very responsive to multiple phone callas and e-mails. Richard did a great deal to ease the pain of dealing with an out-of-state case and his local knowledge and contacts helped reduce my DUI sentence to a reckless driving. I'm very grateful for the service he provided and for his professional and respectful demeanor during the entire painful process. Richard's services were comparatively expensive, but well worth it based on the favorable outcome.

Mr. Lawson had a very calming influence on me. I was very anxious because I had never faced a court hearing before. His knowledge of the law and his professional yet personable attitude put me at ease. He was very patient with me and explained the process to me in a way that wasn't overly technical. He kept me informed of the different date changes for my hearing in a timely manner which enabled me to adjust my work schedule. I am very grateful for all he did for me and would highly recommend him to anyone needing an excellent lawyer.

Richard consulted with me immediately after he was contacted and referred me to one of his trusted collegues. He made sure that I was able to get the best representation for my case and situation.

I had a great experience with his firm. My DUI was reduced to reckless driving and no jail time. This meant a lot to me specially being in graduate school and having a full time job. I would recommend anyone to do their own research and make an informed decision. But if you were to take my advise I would look no further and consult Richard. Him and his firm was always very diligent and prompt in their service.

I hired Richard after speaking with other Attorney's. He really is available 24/7. My family and I all agree the best outcome. DUI and speeding reduced to wreck-less driving, no loss of license, for a working mother that was extremely important.

After an arrest for refusing a field sobriety test & breathalyzer, I contacted Richard on a Saturday afternoon and he replied within an hour. We spoke and he asked me to prioritize the different potential dimensions for what I would want as an outcome (e.g., jail time vs needing to drive vs having DUI on my record), which then set the case strategy & parameters. I told him it was imperative that I avoid a DUI charge to avoid impacting my job & career. The discussion helped me clarify my thinking and set my expectations for what a realistic successful outcome would look like, so I could avoid fantastical unfounded hope. I had a number of follow up questions over the next few days (and months!), and he answered every one of them promptly and succinctly. After a few continuances & several months, we went to court and got the charges dropped to reckless. Although I have to spend 2 days in jail, avoiding the DUI charge was critical to save my future job opportunities and career prospects. Richard was worth every penny. And as an added bonus, I felt like he actually cared. Overall, a sublime experience in a stressful situation.

Richard just never gave up. I knew I was innocent and when he saw the video he new also. My case took over a year and still he did not give up. Hard working guy that knows how to win your case. This guy is dogmatic, smart and knows the system. If you are looking for a guy that will really work on your behalf, limits the number of cases he has and help you out then contact Richard. I interviewed three others and none impressed me except Richard.
