Justin was referred to me by a family member who once practiced law alongside Justin. I heard of his abilities, and knew he'd be the right one for my case. When I contacted Justin, I was nervous. This was the fist time ever having a legal issue, and one that would require a GREAT lawyer to avoid severe, life-altering penalties. Justin was attentive, empathetic and informative during the intake call. Since I was out of town, he did his best to outline the laws of GA, obstacles, expected next steps and options for me over the phone and keep in contact via text, emails and calls. The "cards" seemed stacked against me but Justin said he was ready to fight and would do everything he could should I decide to fight, too. With his vote of confidence, and my willingness to not accept the situation 'as is,' I retained Justin. This was the best decision I could have made! If you've read this far, and are curious as to what Justin can do for you, just know that nothing is guaranteed. Every case is unique. However, I do not believe you will have anyone on your side that will FIGHT - sift through the evidence and the legalities behind your case and outline possibilities to overcome/combat the accusations against you with sound legal work - to get the best possible result(s) more than you will with Justin. In short, I faced an uphill battle with a violation of a traffic control device and a DUI less safe/over .08 (BAC of .176). While elements of the process were questionable, and some prosecutors would have presented an "offer" deal at the hearing as a results, there were no options like that presented to me. I was faced with accepting the charges or fight as Justin agreed to do with me at a jury trial. I flew in from out of town, was mentally set for the "battle," and was in constant contact with Justin prior to my day in court. In what was preparation beyond my imagination, Justin's stellar legal work shed light to various aspects of my case that the jury and judge would likely view as unfavorable for the prosecution/State. Instead of jury selection, I spent the morning of my court date reading (and accepting) a plea deal that ended up with a reduced charge (reckless and traffic violation) with provisions a lot more favorable than any DUI conviction would have been. This outcome saved my job and changed course of my life that had been nervously trudging along over the one year since my initial arrest. My livelihood depended on having a fighter on my side who would win. So did my sanity. I'll say it again: Justin fights to win. I have no intentions of needing Justin's services again. However, I will do my best to spread the word to anyone in need of a STRONG lawyer to help you through a DUI-related case. If that's you, retain Justin Spizman!
This guy KNOWS HIS STUFF. Seriously! He knows the law, he knows the system, he knows the people. I never worried about whether my lawyer was doing what had to be done. No matter what was going to happen I knew it would be the best outcome possible under whatever circumstances. We were fortunate to get an AWESOME outcome, but that's because we had an Awesome lawyer. He's also nice, respectful, extremely reachable, genuine, modest and a Good Guy.
I cant say enough good things about Justin Spizman! I was referred to him by a friend and in the past did not have good luck with "friends" referring "friends". Justin is very responsive to calls, kept me informed immediately when news came about my upcoming case. He is very knowledgeable about DUI law and was able to get my jury to find me not guilty on all accounts! I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of an attorney, not just to plea out but if you want to fight the obtuse laws and tests given at a DUI stop! Do yourself a favor and at least speak with him before signing with any other lawyer.
We had a great experience with Justin. He made me feel at ease and did not pull any punches or just tell us what we wanted to hear. He was very upfront, honest, and real.
Justin was very knowledgeable. He educated us every step of the way in what can be a very confusing process. He knew the law, the Judge and the prosecutors and understood how to best position the matter for a very favorable outcome. Thank you Justin. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants outstanding representation on a DUI matter.
I was referred to Justin Spizman by my cousin who is a lawyer and I must say that he did a fabulous job. Not only was I able to receive a favorable outcome, he empathized with my concerns and operated under good counsel. He kept me well informed of every possible situation that I could encounter with my decision. And on the last day, he worked overtime in order to get me the verdict that would allow me to maintain my normal lifestyle. I would recommend Justin Spizman to anyone else who may encounter an arrest of a DUI. Thanks Justin.
From the beginning Justin made me feel very comfortable with my case. I was wrongfully stopped, an officer searched my car and found a schedule two narcotic. Throughout the case Justin made it very clear that he would fight hard to get me the best deal possible, and he did. The case was nolle prossed (dismissed). I never felt like a criminal or judged by Justin, I was always treated as a friend. While the drug charge against me is something I own, the outcome of the case lets me focus on recovery instead of probation, court fees, and jail. Justin helped me get my life back. Thanks!
Represents me with professionalism and skills to have a dismissal of my case. Good communication with client. He is an excellent Lawyer and makes me happy. Strongly recommend Mr Justin Spizman , he is a life saver.
Justin Spizman with the Hawkins law firm went above and beyond to exceed my expectations. My case was a bit of challenge to have a favorable outcome which would protect my career in the automobile industry. Justin managed to have my case handled before a trial date and without any major repercussions related to fines, etc. Justin is a real stand up guy that I would recommend to anyone.
I have had to deal with lawyers before. I have to say, this time my experience was much different, in a positive way. Mr. Spizman took care of everything, he was looking out for my interest, and he really cared how the case turns out. On top of that he told me what to expect from the case before hand, kept me informed throughout the proceedings. I was aware of what's happening the whole time. I definitely recommend him to anybody out there. I would tell my friends about him also. From my experience, he is an exceptional lawyer!
