When I got charged with a DUI I was devastated. It put my entire livelihood on the line. I was at risk to lose my job and also my license to practice in my field. I went to Mr. Young because I absolutely had to have my case resolved quickly and I could not accept a DUI. He did all of that and more. My case was resolved in a matter of weeks because he worked hard to get it pushed through the court system. I also ended up getting off with a lesser charge that wasn't a DUI. He was always nice, polite and professional and I also never got the impression that I was just a "paycheck" to him. I honestly think that he does what he does because he enjoys it and likes helping people. I won't lie, he is a bit pricey, but he is worth every penny. He will do everything he can to get you your desired outcome.
Elmer Young is an experienced Lawyer that you want on your side on any Trial. In my experience my DUI made it all the way to a jury trial. Mr. Young went over the pros and cons of taking on a jury trial I ultimately was confident with him representing me in the trial so we proceeded. In the courtroom Mr. Young was very aggressive and compelling a kind of lawyer anyone would want on their side. He kept me informed of the steps of the trial which help keep me at ease. All in all we got the results we were looking for of not guilty and I owe everything to Mr. Young. I would recommend him as a Lawyer to anybody with a DUI case.

I had myself in a sticky situation. From that point in time I thought it was the end. After a doing a little searching and from a few recommendations I was able to find Mr. Young. Mr. Young was always available to answer questions I had about my case and ease up the stress. With the help of Mr. Young, my DUI was dropped. I ended up having to plead no contest to failure to yield which was the reason I was pulled over. That resulted in a hefty fine, community service, etc. The main thing is that I don't have to deal with a DUI in the future. I also have my license. Thanks, Mr. Young.

From the outset, Mr. Young had my best interests at heart and kept his promise to represent me to the best of his ability. Mr. Young is extremely knowledgable regarding the DUI laws in GA and the science behind DUI determinations. Using this knowledge and the particular circumstances surrounding my charges, he successfully negotiated a plea bargain with the GA Solicitors Office resulting in the Office dropping the DUI charge and me pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge. While the misdemeanor charge still requires me to pay a fine, be on a year's probation, do community service and attend DUI school, Mr. Young's successful representation left my record clean of a felony of DUI. I recommend him to anyone facing a DUI.

Mr. Young is a man of his word. He said that he would work to the best of his ability in providing the services and attention needed with my case. He did exactly that and more. He was always available and ready to answer any questions I had pertaining to the case. I placed my trust and confidence in his work, skills and knowledge. My case resulted positively and I can't thank him enough. I would also like to extend my gratitude to his wife. She was always pleasant, expressed patience and willing to listen. Her assistance was greatly appreciated throughout this process. Thanks to the both of you.

I had a great expericence with Mr. Young every since the first day I contacted him. He did a case evaluation over the phone and told me what could happen and what he could do for me. He explained the whole situation out for me and told me to think about it and give him a call back if i wanted him to represent me. I contacted Mr. Young again and sent him all of my paperwork and signed the contract. Mr. Young was very informative and told me that everything was going to be okay. He stayed in contact with me throughout the process. On the court date Mr. Young fought to keep my license because I had recieved a DUI and he was successful and this task. I really appreciated working with Mr. Young and would recommend him to anyone to hire if they needed a lawyer. He was very dedicated to the case. I am thankful that I picked him and I am greatful of the outcome. I kept my license and im happy. Thank you Mr. Young.

I found myself facing a DUI charge for the first time, scared and confused I searched for local Augusta attorneys and came across Mr. Young. His numerous positive reviews led me to consult him about my case. He was very informative and told me the positives and negatives to my case and did not pressure at all to hire him, instead, he told me to take my time and think about my decision. I decided to trust him with my case and hoped that he would help me. I remember him calling him one day after work and I broke down in tears (the whole process was very emotionally charged for me) Mr.Young calmed me down and helped me see the light, I knew right away I was in good hands. Fast forward to my dreaded arraignment day, I was utterly shocked at how smooth and fast the process was. The judge reduced my charge then to a reckless driving on that day. I was given hefty fines but at least I am free of a DUI conviction. Mr.Young had warned me that a quick charge reduction was not very common, but he was able to make it happen for me. I would not expect the same speedy resolution for everyone as all cases are different, but I would definitely recommend him to anyone facing the same dilemma as I was. I am very thankful to add one more positive feedback for Mr. Young. He saved my career!
Thank you Mr.Young!

If you are reading this you probably made the same mistake I did so no need to tell you not to drink and drive at this point, but you will want Mr. Young in your corner. I am not being paid to say this but actually had to pay to say this. First of all, if you get to speak with Mrs. Young, that is a blessing in itself because she is such a sweet and true person, acts like she has known you your whole life and is truly sincere. I received a DUI in Chatham County and am an out of state client that did not look forward to returning to Savannah for anything other than sight seeing or vacation and Mr. Young made it possible for me to never see the inside or outside of the courthouse. Mr. Young is a very straight-forward man that will not tell you what you want to hear but will give you the reality and possible outcome for the best or worse side of your case so he is definitely worth every penny in this stressful time in your life. I don't want to give details of my case because it is complicated, but this is where Mr Young specializes. I also read these reviews for over a year wondering if I could be one of the fortunate ones to have a positive ending and at the last moment I received a plea agreement that was phenomenal ( this means very good) and I, not Mr Young, plead guilty. If you put your trust in this man he will not steer you wrong nor give you false info and his character is nothing short of wonderful. Don't listen to your instincts, but rather listen to this man and you will not be disappointed. Good Luck and DONT drink and drive, ANYWHERE or ANYTIME
