Carlos provided me with expert legal council during a difficult time. His knowledge and understanding of my situation helped to keep my mind at ease throughout the entire process, including inside the courtroom. Thanks to Carlos, my DUI charge was reduced to a lesser violation, other charges were dropped completely, and I never lost my right to drive. I highly recommend Carlos to anyone in need of a skilled, knowledgeable, and highly motivated criminal defense lawyer.

I cannot say enough positive things about Carlos Rodriguez. He was very knowledgeable, informative, and educated about the legal process in Cobb County. He kept me informed every step of the way, and definitely made me feel secure in his hands. He was always very realistic when it came to the potential outcome of my case, and never made any promises he couldn't keep. Going into the court room, I was much more confident knowing he was there to represent me. Not only was he very professional, but made me feel comfortable every step of the way. He never made me feel like a criminal, and was always understanding, and never judgmental. Not only did Carlos assist me with my drug case, but also a simple failure to appear in regard to my driver’s license. He encouraged me to take care of some lingering legal issues that I had avoided for many years, which prevented me from getting my license, and also helped me with the process of reinstating my license. Having his guidance really made the whole process a lot less scary, and I would recommend him to anyone out there dealing with any type of legal issues. Not only was Carlos amazing, but his legal assistant, Jintana, couldn’t have been more helpful either. I was always greeted with a warm smile when I entered the office, and it definitely made me feel that much more at ease. I feel that Carlos is great at what he does, and will only get better as time goes on. Thank you for all that you have done for me and my family, and also my future.

He represented me when I was arrested for my first DUI charge and got the charges dismissed through using an interesting approach to show the judge why the evidence should be thrown out. He kept me well informed and answered any questions that I had. Would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer to defend them in a DUI case.

A very smart attorney with great compassion and empathy for his clients. He sincerely believes in helping people overcome the many obstacles of the criminal court system and you won't find a more dedicated professional to represent you.

I have personally observed Carlos in court and interacting with his clients. He has earned the respect of judges, prosecutors and his colleagues with his hard work and natural abilities. Carlos is one of the few lawyers I would trust if a friend or family member was in need of a lawyer.
