I hardly ever write reviews but my experience with Akintunde has been impressively beautiful. I have worked with other lawyers before but Tunde exceeded my expectations and did what no other attorney could do for my daughter who was framed and charged with aggravated assault and was nearly expelled from school until Attorney Tunde took over the case and fed the school with their own poison that they planed to give to my daughter. The very planed school expulsion was shot to death by Attorney Tunde after 6 hours of tribunal hearing. My daughter ended up going back to school. Attorney Akintunde works over and beyond the call of duty to make absolutely sure that you are satisfied before he let go the opponent. This is the attorney you need to be on your back. He even took over my case two days before hearing with a reasonable price and still won the case. I was referred to him by friends he dismissed their felony charges in Atlanta. Thank you sir for your hard work.

"I consider Mr. Akinyele as having been a mentor of sorts to me. As a young attorney in the DeKalb County District Attorney's Office, he trained me on the finer points of handling criminal cases as well as being ethical and professional. He is one of the best criminal defense lawyers in the Atlanta area and I would not hesitate to recommend him."

Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 31
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I confidently endorse Tunde Akinyele. He was highly recommended to me by a colleague as an expert knowledgeable in criminal law. We collaborated on a matter for a foreign national whose case was complicated by a criminal conviction. Although deeply remorseful, this foreign national could have been separated from his US citizen wife and two children had it not been for Tunde's thorough research and excellent argument. The foreign national is now a permanent resident, productive citizen, and good husband and father. I will certainly turn to Tunde for help should any of my clients need assistance of a knowledgeable criminal attorney in the future."

"Tunde has been a long time criminal attorney, first being a very well liked and highly accomplished prosecutor for Dekalb County, and now in the private bar doing criminal defense. I think his skill set is unique because he has been on both sides of the courtroom, and he can bring that knowledge to assist you in your defense case. I highly endorse this lawyer."
