I chose to contact the Chestney Law Firm for my DUI because of their high rating on here. I was in quite the predicament when I was arrested while on probation and I was obviously freaking out. My case was given to Rebecca and, after hearing the details from the arrest, she seemed very confident that I may be able to avoid a conviction. She was knowledgable in just about every facet of DUI law and answered my questions very thoroughly in the initial interview. She explained not only the possible outcomes of my case but also how the Chestney firm operates each case. This automatically made me feel better, and it is the reason I eventually chose Rebecca to represent me.
This was essentially the last time I saw her. We contacted through email and phone mostly afterwards. At the initial appearances in court there was another, very capable, lawyer who seemed to be their person who represented the firm in Municipal Court. Long story short, everything happened just as Rebecca said it would and after a few years it finally seemed as if my case would go to trial. I got a call from Rebecca a few weeks prior to the court date and she told me she got it dismissed! Legality of the checkpoint was called into question and the judge agreed. Rebecca and the entire Chestney firm are well worth it if you really don't want/can't have a DUI on your record.

I live out of state, and this past July, while visiting friends I was arrested for a BUI (boating under the influence) during my stay with friends. I was completly lost on what to do, how to handle the situation, have absolutely no experience with the court system. I did the only thing I could think of, and that was google search for Georgia lawyers with BUI experience. I got lucky, there were many choices, but I chose Ms Kozycki by literally flipping a coin. I inquired about her services via their web site and she contacted me that day. She took care of everything, had the charges reduced so a BUI would not be on my record and I only had to make the trip back to Georgia (an 8 hour drive) 1 time, and the entire procedure was over in less than 30 minutes. I could not have been more pleased, I can't see how the procedure could have been any easier. If you have a similar situation, I would highly recommend contacting Rebecca Kozycki. Talk to her for 5 minutes, and you will realize she knows what she is talking about, understands your situation, and will guide you through the process for you to have the best possible outcome.

With lot of things going on in my mind after the day of arrest, not sure what should be my action. I was very much worried about my arrest, not having too many choices to talk with friends or others about the DUI arrest. Just kept thinking about my carrier & family, thinking what will happen next, I was running around talking with so many lawyers in Atlanta, everyone with whom I spoke was giving a hope, and the last one whom I meet to discuss on my case was Rebecca before I decide whom to represent my case.
Not sure what made me to choose Ms. Rebecca, next day I called Chestney Law Firm and told I would like to have Ms. Rebecca handle my case. In next few hrs, I got a call from Rebecca for getting all the required details and she just told me this, "You don't need to worry about anything, and we are there to handle this". I realized this during the entire duration till my case got dismissed in Motion hearing.
At the day of Motion hearing, she challenged the state for the way I was detained. She questioned the arresting officer in such a way that he gave all answers as “NO”, “I DON’T”, “NOT SURE”. She was very clear on her argument with the state and explained the judge why she wants to challenge the dentition process. With all the facts explained to the judge, and after the review to all the facts judge dismissed the case for unlawful arrest which dropped my DUI charges.
My personal recommendation to anyone who is in tough time with their DUI charges, I went thru the pain of this mistake, and know how it will be. Would recommend them to have Ms. Rebecca handle it and you continue your routine job.
When you read this just advice all your friends and family members “Don’t Drink and Drive”, it’s a pain not only for you, for all your surroundings.
