Allie was recommended to us by another attorney. Our 17 year old had gotten into a bit of trouble with a misdemeanor possession citation in the summer of 2013. Needless to say, we were frightened for our son, having had absolutely no experience with this type of situation before. We did not want this mistake as a teen to impact the rest of his life. Allie helped to educate us as to what all of the possible outcomes might be, and told us what things our son needed to do (and not do) prior to court in order for him to have the best possible outcome. He did all of those things, and when we went to court, Allie fought for our son and she did in fact achieve the best possible outcome for him, which included removal from his record as soon as all of his court ordered requirements were completed. Allie is very knowledgeable, and straightforward in her communication and explanations. We felt very comfortable with her, and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone with a youth that has gotten into trouble and needs good counsel.

Could not have had better representation. I was up to date on everything throughout the entire process and we ultimately got the best result. I will highly recommend Allison to anyone who is need of a good attorney.

For my case, I was charged with MIP and Fake ID charge. Originally, I was looking at receiving a year and a half probation and 60 hours community service through free trial. Allie had that reduced to a year and 30 hours community service. She has an office in both Atlanta and Athens which makes it convenient for any cases that involve Atlanta kids attending UGA. Especially for the parents. She also works with you till the case is finally finished, with no hidden charges. Overall, she is very loyal, hard working, and wise.

Ok folks, listen up. Nobody -- and I mean nobody -- plans for a DUI. In my case, I didn't plan on a couple of them. While your friends, family or coworkers may be quick to judge, Ms. McCarthy is one person you absolutely need on your side. While every case can't be solved the way you initially expect, I can attest firsthand that Ms. McCarthy will go to any length to pursue every possible legal avenue to ensure the service of justice. She knows the law so extensively that the smallest detail (which many other attorneys may overlook) might absolutely make all the difference in a verdict.
Even if, for whatever reason, your case gets dragged out for an extended period of time, she will be fully available and responsive until the case is completely over. A DUI may feel like end of the world, but Ms. McCarthy works tirelessly to make sure it isn't.

If you ever find yourself in a position of needing a criminal defense attorney, Allie McCarthy is without question the attorney that I would recommend. My son needed her services and she made the process so much easier for a stressed out mom. She kept us informed every step of the way and my son could not have asked for a better outcome with his case. Allie truly cares about her clients.

Allie was very helpful throughout the process of my DUI case in Barrow County, GA. She kept me informed of what was going on with the case at all times. She answered all of my questions and explained everything that I needed to know. I would highly recommend her.

I was very impressed with Ms. McCarthy's representation during our Civil Case. She answered all our questions and was very patient with my husband and I. She provided us with pertinent information that helped us understnad our rights and our case.
She was always available and made us feel our case was important to her. She treated us as though we were her own family.
I highly recommend her services, JUSTICE will be served!
