This was my first DUI, Craig explained how the process worked and what to expect. He was available if I had questions or concerns, even afterhours. He also helped my mom understand the situation. He more than just got me through my case, he treated me good.

Getting arrested for a DUI is a scary, embarrassing and confusing process. I will be the first person to admit, I made a bad decision. I was fortunate, no one was hurt, there was no accident. The process is not easy to understand and certainly not one I wanted to go in alone. There is a great deal of misinformation associated with a charge like this.
I called Craig and he set up an appointment immediately. He was very personable and not accusatory. Since my arrest, meeting Craig was the first thing that felt right and I felt that maybe I would get out of this with minimal damage.
Craig explained each step he was going to take. Since this was my first offence, he explained what the best and worst case scenarios would be. There was a minimal disruption of my work and personal life. Craig took care of everything.
When the time came for my trial, it was reassuring having an experienced attorney who understood the system to represent my interests. Craig did the best job anyone could have done. He explained what was expected of me moving forward and when the time came, would follow up.
The cost was very reasonable. When you research online and you read the stories of cost, you get nervous about the total financial impact. Now I can’t speak for everyone, but Craig was very reasonable and the service was terrific.
My first advice, is never drink and drive. However, if you do make a mistake, I would highly recommend Craig Atkinson. He did a great job for me and it will be best decision you can make in a confusing and difficult process.

Mr. Atkinson handled my case in 2012. He handled all the legalities promptly and efficiently. He kept me informed from start to finish. I would highly recommend him.

I have never been in any kind of trouble in my life, and Craig couldn't have made it any smoother for me. Craig and his partner were there for me every step of the way and are still there for me even though my court dates are over. They got my felony dropped down to a misdemeaner with the possibility of being completely taken off my records in a two years. I could never thank them enough for everything. If I had to choose between lawyers I know that everytime I would choose both of these men. I rember crying in there office because I was so embarrased for what I had done and they told me "It's not the mistake you made that defines you it's how you learn and move on from that mistake."

Craig recently represented me in a POCS and POP case. He worked hard with the prosecuting attorney to get it lowered to just POP with an option for me to do a little community service to get it that charge removed as well. I have never been in a legal situation like this so I was nervous of what was required of me and Craig helped me through the process with ease and comfort. Thanks Craig.

Craig did a great job in helping my son manage the process and get a DWP ticket reduced to an invalid, thereby lowering the fines and eliminating mandatory jail time and a suspended/restricted drivers license. I would highly recommend Craig for driving related and other similar misdemeanors.
