I was an out of state resident who got a DWI plus FIVE other charges. I also had an outstanding warrant for my arrest because of my failure to show to court. Mr. Powell, not only took care of the warrant situation, but he did so in a timely and professional manner. The communication was also fantastic.
Regarding the specifics of my criminal case, he was upfront and honest from the beginning, like a true good man. Good people working there, and a heck of a lawyer. He under-promised and over-delivered. I STRONGLY recommend Mr. Powell for any criminal defense and then some. You would be short-changing yourself if you didn't have him represent you.

I was out of state on an assignment and i missed a speeding court date. This was handled professionally, promptly, and with a favorable outcome. Thank you kindly for such a speedy turnaround and courtesy.
