Quick and successful
He took my case and appeared on my behalf the same week… his attention to detail was amazing and he managed to get my case dismissed…

Five Stars for a Reason!
Mr. Cook is an excellent attorney. His extensive knowledge of Georgia law helped me straighten out my DUI quickly and with minimal repercussions. He really went above and beyond the call of duty and always follows up with me via phone call or email when I need him. He treated me like family and has earned my trust as a respectable attorney.

Thomas Cook is very knowledgeable
He did a great job handling my case against 4 police officers. He stuck to the facts and allowed justice to be served. He won my case against Dekalb county police. He took his time,got all the details and proved that they were wrong. I appreciate his patience I'm the case handling even though it took longer than expected. He is very affordable also Thanks Thomas

Helped dismiss my possession case
Mr. Cook is by far the best attorney i've ever dealt with. He has a great work ethic and knows Georgia law and the way around the court system better then any other lawyer i've ever had to hire. With Mr. Cook i felt as if my case was a priority and he always took the time to listen and help with any questions i had. I would reeccomend him to anyone who needs to get rid of a charge. He has my business as long as i need an attorney. That being said, hopefully not soon.

Handled my case very fast, professional, and with great care. I have never used an attorney before, they all want to much and dont deliver results... Mr. Cook, on the other hand was my first attorney i ever had to consult and i am more than impressed. He was very reasonable on his fees and was very truthful, helpful and determined in his word and hard work. My view of lawyers is now much better as long as i can call Mr. Cook. Thanks Again for all your hard work!!

A God Send - Highly Recommend Mr.Cook
My son was involved in a car accident, went to court and was told that there would be another court date set. After two years he finally received notice that a court date was set and he needed to be present at a certain date and represented with a lawyer. Unfortunately, he is working/living out of the country and could not be there. We did not know what to do so I contacted Mr. Cook's law firm, which was recommended to me by a friend. Mr. Cook was assigned to his case. From the first moment that I spoke to Mr. Cook, I knew he was the one for us. He was very professional and put my mind at ease that he would be able to help my son. Mr. Cook immediately started working on his case, kept us up to date through e-mails, text, and phone calls, he was always AVAILABLE. He had the best interest of my son in mind, very honest and thorough. Thank you so much Mr. Cook for your hard work and diligence on his case. I give Mr. Cook my highest recommendation and know he can help you.

very appreciative....
I have nothing but great things to say about Thomas Cook . He listened to every thing my husband and I said regarding our case and then used it in court accordingly. Hopefully I never have to see him again but if we are in need of a lawyer ever again we will definitely call him as well as refer anyone in need .

Unknown Attorney | Sep 15
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I watched Thomas in trail on an obstruction charge. It was his client versus a group of officers. He picked apart the officers one by one in a skilled cross examination. He obtained an acquittal on a case most attorneys would have been afraid to take to trail. He is skilled and I would recommend him to anyone charged with a serious crime.."
