I was charged with a DUI in Cobb County towards the beginning of this year (2016). Let me start out by saying, I was in town for business, not only do I not live in Cobb County, but I live in a completely different state.
My mailbox was immediately flooded with letters from different DUI Attorney’s. I started by looking at the different letters carefully; what was their experience, what do they specialize in, how the letter was written, how professional the letter looked, etc… The next step was to make phone calls.
Mr. David Willingham answered his own phone. I was taken aback because attorney’s (to my previous experience) never answer their own phones. After a brief 15-20 minute conversation, I made my decision and threw all of the other letters in the trash.
Mr. Willingham made me a promise during our first phone call; he would make himself available anytime, keep me up to date, work hard for the best possible result whether it went to a trial or not, and most importantly would be honest.
From the first phone call to the last phone call, Mr. Willingham had kept true to his promise. He truly made me feel like my case was the only one he was working.
We unfortunately did have to go to trial, because as embarrassing as this is, it was not my first offense. I was looking at mandatory jail time. The closer the trial date came, the more I started freaking out (to say the least). Mr. Willingham sat on the phone with me for what seemed like hours (at different times of course).
Mr. Willingham was calm, confident, and honest. At one point Mr. Willingham asked me what I did, I replied with what I currently do. Mr. Willingham did not hesitate with his response, “you’re the best at what you do, and I am the best at what I do.”
I was beyond thankful that I chose Mr. Willingham to represent me. I was offered many plea deals leading up to the trial and with each one I listened to the advice of Mr. Willingham. The date of the trial arrived and again I was offered a deal, a very good one. And again, I listened to the advice of Mr. Willingham. My charges were dismissed.
To sum this up, my heart still beats very fast when I consider the what-ifs. Then I remember, that’s unnecessary because I chose the right person to represent me and took every piece of advice that I was given.
The most important thing when being charged with a crime is who represents you. Stop looking and call Mr. Willingham. I would highly recommend David Willingham to anyone, no questions asked.

I couldn’t be more satisfied with Mr. Willingham’s work on my DUI case! Through my long process, he let my worries become his and took care of everything from the beginning to the end. Because of his exceptional knowledge, in-depth research, and persistence and dedication to my case, he was able to get my breath test suppressed and, in turn, lower my DUI to a reckless driving charge. The prosecutor was just as determined, but Mr. Willingham presented challenging arguments that even the prosecutor was unable to dispute. I could not be more appreciative and thankful for everything he has done for me in this difficult time. He truly exceeded my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone! – E.B., Atlanta

David has a reputation that lawyers with a lot more grey hair would envy, and he earned it the right way, aggressively defending his clients, beating charges, and winning tough trials. I have referred a number of clients to him and will continue to do so. If I ever found myself on the wrong side of criminal charges, I would call on him myself without hesitation.
