I hired Mr. Ambrose as my DUI lawyer and not only did he calm my nerves about the process, he talked me through everything! He was very patient with me and did not treat me like a criminal. I knew I needed a lawyer because the officer failed to give me a field sobriety test even after I asked for one. He arrested for DUI without proving it basically. Mr. Ambrose reviewed the officer's dashcam and saw where I was blatantly sober. My case was dismissed! I would definitly reccomend him!

Mr. Ambrose was very knowledgeable with the case he helped me with. He knew the law in relation to the charge that was against me. The outcome of the case was exactly as he told me during our initial consultation. He also has a very ethical and Christian based philosophy to his practice. I would recommend him to anyone.

I called Mr. Chris and met with him on the first work day after my charges. He explained the process to me and answered all of my questions. He gave me hope but no guarantee. I had to make several other calls to his office with questions and concerns and Mr. Chris always called me back promptly. I was very pleased with his representation in my case. He negotiated a deal for me and I am very grateful. I would highly recommend Mr. Chris.

Attorney CHRIS AMBROSE informed me that he would try and keep my CO case out of court and he did it. Thank you attorney CHRIS AMBROSE for keeping that CO case out of court.

Attorney Ambrose earned every dollar and more for the way he handled our case. From day one there were no doubt that he would do all that he could within the guidelines of the law to defend our case. He kept us informed of new information, questions and just being personable. We never felt intimidated, are felt that we were any less than human (for lack of a better word). We definitely recommend Attorney Ambrose for you law needs.

Devastation, embarassment and fear would be a good words to describe how I felt after getting a first time DUI at a police road block. I called Chris first thing Monday morning and he was able to see me immediately! After that first meeting I felt confident I had the best representation I could find. He explained everything very thoroughly both in his office and in court. He negotiated an awesome deal for me and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
I would highly recommend Chris! Don't try to handle this kind of problem on your own.

Mr. Ambrose represented me, about a month ago, in a criminal case that involved 3 different charges consisting of DUI, open container and failure to maintain lane. These were/are serious, life changing charges and as a first offender, with no previous criminal record, I knew how important it was for me to get these charges dismissed or at the very least, reduced to a lesser charge. As unfortunate and desperate of a situation that I seemed to have been in, fortunately, Mr. Ambrose and his staff were available and eager to help me in my time of desperation and time of need for legal counsel. From the very first time that I spoke with Mr. Ambrose and his staff, as well as, through the weeks leading up to my court date, they were nothing less than professional, courteous, knowledgeable and ultimately, successful at what they so diligently sought to accomplish. As I mentioned above, I was facing 3 separate charges, one of which, was the life changing charge of driving under the influence. Mr. Ambrose, not only got my DUI charge completely dismissed, but he was also able to get one of the remaining two charges completely dismissed and the last of the 3 charges was reduced to reckless driving.
I made a bad decision when I chose to get behind the wheel of a vehicle, while under the influence of alcohol. Not only did I jeopardize my own life, but more importantly, I jeopardized the lives of those whose paths I crossed while I was irresponsibly driving while intoxicated. Fortunately for me and by the abundant and unlimited grace and mercy of God, no one but me was injured, as a result of my irresponsible decision. Yeah, I wrecked and totaled my truck. Spent the night in the ER, for which I am still struggling to pay the bill for. I was released to authorities the next morning and transported to the jailhouse, in hand cuffs no less, where I was booked, fingerprinted, photographed and charged with DUI and the other 2 charges all of which completed my newly acquired criminal “RAP sheet.” However, as bad as all these things sound, they are irrelevant to the fact that I could have injured or even taken the life of another.
If you insist on driving under the influence, just like I did, I recommend that whenever you get caught and charged with DUI, that you call Mr. Ambrose and his legal staff. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. Again, my DUI charges were completely dismissed and/or reduced to a lesser charge thanks to Mr. Ambrose’s legal expertise.

Chris Ambrose recently handled a case for me and did an excellent job. He worked diligently to
obtain the outcome we had hoped for. He was easy to communicate with and very reassuring throughout the entire experience. I had 100% trust in the case he was working on with me. I would quickly recommend him to anyone I know, should they need the services of a lawyer. He is a man of high integrity and knowledge in his practice. His staff is also one of the best I have come in contact with. I always felt very comfortable at this office.

Recently Chris Ambrose represented me in a very delicate matter. I was in need of the best attorney I could find. After asking for recommendations from close friends and colleagues Chris Ambrose was the only name I was given. It was quite obvious Chris was the person I needed behind me.
I found Chris to be incredibly professional, highly knowledgeable, meticulous, personable, dependable and above all communicative.
Every communication between Chris left me with absolutely no question as where I stood and the follow-up documentation could not have been any faster.
This case could have been a life altering situation for me but thanks to Chris Ambrose and his excellent legal team he successfully resolved the situation in a timely and more than acceptable manner.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Chris Ambrose to anyone in need of a true, dependable law professional.

Mr. Ambrose worked every angle and did not give up in the face of a tough DA. I'm very happy with my result. If you need someone for DUI representation in the Thomasville area, there is no other choice.

Chris Ambrose gave us personal service from day one. No talking to secretaries and no wait for a callback. If Chris was in the office you spoke with him! Our case was a serious criminal case with multiple charges. He was honest and made every effort to handle our case quickly and professionally. The outcome was favorable and we chose him because he was highly reccommended. We made a good choice and will continue to use him for any area of law service he is confident in.

Chris helped one of our "commercial drivers " get his CDL lience back after it had been suspened for speeding. Chris has heped us with these type of problems (DUI,etc.) in the past with great results. You are always able to talk with Chris when you need him. He handles himself in a very professional manner. His staff is always helpful and knowlegeable about your particular situation. I highly recomend him for your legal problems.

My experience with Mr. Ambrose services was pleasant and I was very well pleased with him and his staff's performance. He was very knowledgable and on task in representing me. I feel he went beyond his call in representing me. I was very appreciative of his recommendations on several certain matters. He was also compassionate and interested in my future well-being.

Life threw me a curve ball in the case of a DUI charge. Having never experiencing this situation, I was floored and scared to death. Knowing nothing about handling this situation, I knew I needed legal help. DUI is a serious charge and something that should not be handled lightly. After considering a few attorneys I was impressed with Chris Ambrose. First of all he talked with me one on one at the very first phone call about inquiring about his services. Not just a receptionist. Before even being hired he offered much needed advice concerning my case and what I should do with or without an attorney. After hiring Mr. Ambrose, on the very first appointment, it became clear to me that I had hired the right man for the job. Besides be very knowledgeable about the situation, he also made me feel very comfortable about what had happen to me. Honestly, drinking and driving should not happen at all but it does happen and sometimes those people get caught. Bad things happen to good people as well. The outcome of my case went exactly as what Mr. Ambrose hoped to achieve from the beginning. The charge was lessened, the fine was less than what we had discussed from the beginning and most importantly I do not have a DUI on my record. So sometimes you can put your faith in the hands of someone else. I suggest, if needed, make sure it is in the hands of Chris Ambrose.

Mr. Ambrose and his firm were polite, friendly, and most important very effective at protecting my rights. They saved me time, money, and kept my record clean. He got my speeding fine reduced, kept the points off my license, got a dubious DUI reduced to reckless driving, and got them to drop a BS claim of marijuana dismissed. I recommend him highly for any problem those Georgia cops can try to invent.

I have worked with many different professionals over the past 35 years. Never have I worked with someone as proficient, professional and practiced as Chris Ambrose. He not only resolved our legal cases in an expeditious manner, he counseled our family through such a stressful and emotional experience with compassion and concern. His entire office staff were considerate and insightful. They functioned as a complete and unified team. Even though this firm is over 60 miles from our home, we will not hesitate to contact Mr. Ambrose and his firm in the future.
I pray God's blessings on each and every one in this firm.

Very professional and straightforward, very respectful and non-judgmental. All in all, I was extremely satisfied with this attorney and his staff. I felt very comfortable putting my faith in Mr Ambrose.

Very nice Attorney he really seems to care about his clients. Spent time talking with me and got my case dismissed in a very timley manor. I would advise anyone to hire him.

Mr. Ambrose helped us with a case involving a you family member. He made some bad choices that could have affected and followed him for the rest of his life. Mr. Ambrose took his case and had the slate wiped clean. He got 6 months probation with 40 hours of community service with no arrest record. Mr. Ambrose talked to this young family member about actions and consequences and gave him the "straight up" about what could happen to him and his great future if he were to continue down the same path. Mr. Ambrose was very helpful in all areas and went above and beyond the call. He will continue to represent us in the future as follow up to this case and we would recommed him to any one with a teenager or adult in trouble.

Our dear family member is a young adult who had been in unhealthy situations, using very poor judgment, and making bad decisions, and demonstrating very risky behavior. Since being arrested for possessing Rx drugs she has been able to begin to turn her life around thanks to her attorney. She was given a minimal sentence. Her charges were pretty much dismissed and she will not have a record. She has been allowed to go and use her time and effort to build a strong foundation to succeed in life. She was trusted, respected, supported, and given the chance to do diligence to prove herself. She has already pushed through and endured so much, determined to put it all behind her. A burden has been lifted. She has learned and will help others because of her experience. Choices have consequences; she now has the chance to work hard, make good choices, and accept good consequences. All is possible due to her lawyer's strong defense and belief in his client. Her family is very grateful and thankful for his representation.

Mr. Ambrose and his staff represented me on a dui case. I was very pleased with the outcome of the case and the dedication that was provided to me. I received a dui with a commercial drivers license while on probation, Mr. Ambrose and his paralegal kept me informed on every step that was being taken to keep me from loosing my cdl and being revoked by probation. I must say he and his paralegal are the best.

I feel that you went above and beyond what was expected of you. I thank you for being open and honest with your opinions. I would most definitely hire you again but let's pray that won't happen again.

Mr. Ambrose and staff was very professional and made me feel very trustworthy of him. He was very knowlegeable, responsive and assured me that he would do everything that he could do within the law as far as getting my case solved and I must say he did just that. He is an honest and fair attorney and that was very important to me. Another thing that was important to me was that I am a Florida resident and I could not find anyone in Florida that I trusted and after surfing the internet and found Mr. Ambrose and after reading his condentials I was very impressed and was very glad to have him represent me. Yes, Yes I would highly recommend him and if I need his services again, I won't hestitate to call his office. Good Attorney!
