I made a mistake and got a DUI. Ms Crucilla got it reduced to a reckless and saved my job. She was very knowledgeable and understood the law. She explained everything to me so that I could understand what was going on. Also , she was very understanding and made me feel comfortable in a very bad situation. I am young and she was able to work with my budget. I hope I don't need her again, but if I do I will be calling her.

You cannot go wrong with Bernadette!! I was facing 20 years in prison and my wife 10 years. Bernadette built a strong defense for me and my wife. She is extremely intelligent and a bulldog. This woman will fight and do what's right to keep the DA from sending you away for a long time. Me and my wife went through 3 attorneys prior to finding Bernadette. Not only did we lose thousands of dollars and precious time but we also almost lost our freedom if we had stuck with them. Luckily we were able to hire Bernadette and we won our case. A FULL ACQUITTAL. Thank you Bernadette, to you and Cricket!!

Having Bernadette on my team is by far the BEST decision my husband and I have made! She's a beast, won't bs or sugar coat anything and she fights for her clients... There are innocent people that need people on their team. She's just awesome!

Bernadette has been my criminal defense attorney for a little over a month now. I trust her 100% with my family's defense and don't have an ounce of doubt that she isn't working nonstop on this case. Thus far her fees have been fair and honest and she has thought of alternatives to save me on extra expenses; very smart and wise thing to do if your client isn't made of money. She will not throw your money around carelessly unlike other attorneys I have dealt with. She's tough and she takes initiative! I don't have to be constantly on her about obtaining critical information.
I've never met an attorney that keeps great communication like Bernadette does. That is very important because if you don't hear much from your attorney, then most of the time they aren't doing much for you (3 past experiences). Bernadette and her legal assistant Cricket are an awesome duo. They are always on it! Whatever I need, Cricket will pass the word to Bernadette and vice versa. There is never a break in comm. When I send an email, I get a reply back within minutes. If she's busy with other clients it will be returned within reasonable time (same day and not days later). Same goes for phone calls.
From what I have seen so far she knows her stuff! Whenever I've had a question, she has answered it and answered it straight up; no sugar coating. That's what I want to hear! When she didn't have an answer to my question, she did the research and informed me even before I called to follow up on it. I have yet to hear an answer from her being "I don't know". When you start hearing a lot of "I don't knows" then attorneys aren't researching (again, past 3 experiences with me).
Kept me informed:
Thus far she has always kept me in the loop about my entire case. She is easy to work with and works well with other attorneys. If anything major comes up, she calls me up and gives me a heads up.
In conclusion, I'm extremely satisfied with what she is doing for me and my family. I wouldn't go with any other criminal defense attorney in Macon, GA. If you want someone that is going to FIGHT for you, you definately want to hire Bernadette!
