While this was not a serious case per se', I have unfortunately had a checkered past. I had Rafe represent me for a DUI over 12 years ago.
This was a case of a misguided "Aggressive Driving" charge, and Rafe was booked. I retained Parker McFarland of this firm after reviewing his history, and I could not be more satisfied.
IN FACT, I would definitely just hire Parker next time!! Nothing against Rafe, he is an excellent attorney. I was just THAT HAPPY with Mr. McFarland!
I promise you will not be dissatisfied!!

I can not say enough about my positive experience with Parker McFarland. As once can imagine, I was very nervous, anxious and fearful throughout the period between my DUI arrest and the final sentencing. Parker was there every step of the way, answering any and all of my questions/concerns, keeping me informed, handling all necessary paperwork, etc. The administrative charge against my license was dismissed, so I was able to keep my license through the entire process. Parker worked diligently to work with the prosecutor to negotiate the charges, and subsequently was able to get my DUI charge reduced so that it didn't become a conviction on my permanent criminal record. I definitely would not hesitate to recommend Parker to anyone in need of an attorney.

I had a close family friend charged with a serious alcohol related felony up near Cumming Georgia. I did not hesitate to send them to Parker. He fought fiercely before, during, and after my friend's jury trial. After the jury trial, I had the opportunity to read the entire transcript of the trial and all pre-trial motions. I can say with absolute certainty that he did a brilliant job.
