I was referred to Tom by one of his colleagues to handle a case involving an expungement of which my application had been denied twice within a five year period. I had successfully fulfilled the conditions of my pre-trial diversion which permitted eligibility for an expungement, yet I continued to receive denial. Upon our initial phone contact, I indicated that I was a licensed professional whose license was approaching renewal which may involve a background check. As requested, Tom identified the problem and expeditiously proceeded to resolve my case in a timely manner. Tom demonstrates superb rapport with DA's, judges, and Atlanta law enforcement, as well as exceptional collegial relationships. Additionally, during his explanations of the procedures for case resolution, he conversed in layman's terms, which aided in my comprehension of the legalities involved. Tom listened, not only to my legal issues, but also to my personal challenges that this issue had produced. It is quite difficult to locate an attorney who will "fight for you", and who also integrates empathy into his interactions. Tom IS that attorney! I recommend him regarding any criminal defense case! Thanks, Tom

Thanks Tom for assisting today in traffic court. You were able to reduce the citation keeping it from appearing on my driving record. And we were 2nd to be called which means we were in and out quickly. It definitely pays to have you be my side...just don't want to make this a habit!

We hired Tom to represent our son in a complicated (and serious) legal case in Atlanta. While the case was being handled our son had some other issues in two other counties, one of which Tom handled himself directly, and another involved some long distance negotiations with another legal team. Tom handled all three cases in an extremely professional manner, and managed to get the best possibly outcome for our son. Each case was different and unique in its own way, but Tom handled each of them amazingly well and professionally. One of the cases was lengthy, and we had to attend court regularly, but Tom was always there to negotiate and help us through any difficult moments. We would highly recommend Tom for any and all legal issues, he will work hard and smart to obtain the best results.

I had a particularly complex case involving multiple tickets and bench warrants in various jurisdictions, and I hardly had any idea what was going on, let alone what to do about my situation, when I went to Tom. Even so, Tom quickly developed a plan of action and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I had been extremely worried (and hopelessly certain) that my license suspension and criminal record were going to have a negative effect on my professional future. Knowing that, Tom was persistent and aggressive in achieving the results that I needed. In one court, there was a harsh prosecutor who would not budge on the outcome of my tickets/suspensions, so Tom came up with a creative plan, went back to the court, and ended up having the suspension lifted.
Tom Nagel exceeded all expectations, and I could not be more thankful for his services and hard work. He is a highly effective and intelligent attorney, and I completely trusted him with my case. I STRONGLY advise anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney to get Tom on their side. Many other attorneys would have told me to just live with the license suspension after dealing with a difficult and stubborn prosecutor, but Tom knew how important it was for me to have my license back, and he refused to take no for an answer.

I highly recommend Mr. Nagel for legal consultation and representation. He handled my case with professionalism. The deal he got for me at court exceeded my expectations. Please consider consulting him before making any decisions regarding a citation to court.

Tom Nagel is an exceptionally aggressive and effective attorney. Tom was able to get me a deal, which I consider no less than a miracle. If you have a charge against you I highly recommend you get someone with the legal knowledge and negotiations skills Tom possesses. Tom will work closely with you and push the prosecutor to give you the best deal. I can't put into words how thankful I chose Tom to handel my case, and recommend to anyone else to do the same.

Tom Nagel represented me in my DUI and possession case and have both charges dropped to reckless driving and disorderly conduct. He is very knowledgeable and kept me updated throughout my case. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Mr Nagel really helped advise us with a situation our son had gotten himself into trouble. Sometimes humans make stupid mistakes that didn't hurt anyone but could have and we should have some type of penalty but no for the rest of our life.
Tom was able to let us know the different possible outcomes and what each included so that we could plan to do things like community services hours served in advance to show good faith, place our own penalty for his mistake & be ahead when entering court.
Our day in court was scary but comforting knowing that Mr Nagel was there with us and on our side. The judge was very stern with our son as he should be to "scare him straight" but very insightful & extremely fair. It was definitely the assistance of our attorney that made our end verdict a lot better than we ever expected.
I would HIGHLY recommend Tom Nagel to anyone seeking professional & honest attorney representation.

I walked into the courtroom, sat and watched people lose their licenses left and right, as well as receive ridiculous fines and probation on top of that. These people did not have Tom Nagel as an attorney.
I thought for sure my license was gone, as my tickets were way worse than most cases.
Mr. Nagel told me not to worry, just let him do the talking. He came back with an excellent deal. Not only did I keep my license, he got the charge reduced, and even got one thrown out.
I would recommend Tom Nagel to anyone who is facing a worrisome day in court. He is very knowledgable of the law and your rights, and will fight to provide you with the best represention available in Atlanta.

When I hired Tom Nagel I was on probation and I got in a bar fight. A Sandy Springs detective was leaving cards on my front door asking me to call him. I was afraid I was going to have my probation violated and go to jail.
Tom Nagel called the detective for me. He negotiated a meeting with the detective after my probation end date.
He went to the meeting with me and did all the talking. He knew all the detectives by name. I received a ticket and walked out of the meeting.
He went to court with me. Again he knew everyone at the court house. He knew the prosecutor assigned to my case. The “victim” showed up to court trying to get me in trouble. Mr. Nagel got me off with a nothing but a small fine. I have paid bigger fines for running stop signs.
I would recommend hiring Tom Nagel if you are in trouble with the law. He knows how to navigate the court system to your advantage. Do not try to handle your own defense without an experienced lawyer. The decision to hire Tom Nagel is one of the smartest things I have ever done.
