About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

Whether you are dealing with a criminal arrest, divorce, or injuries due to someone else's negligence, I am ready to stand up and fight for the best possible outcome in your case. Remember, the right attorney works for you and with you to accomplish your goals. I offer each and every client the type of personalized representation and advice I would give a friend or family member. Together, we will do whatever it takes to ensure that you receive the outcome you deserve.

Not every case ends with a quick and easy settlement or plea. When the time comes, you need an attorney who isn't afraid to fight for you in the courtroom. For years I have fought for my clients in and out of the courtroom. I have a proven track record of successful litigation and "Not Guilty" verdicts across the State of Georgia and am never afraid to announce "Ready for Trial."

Professional and Precise!
Robert was referred to me by a friend and he helped me win my personal injury case. He's very professional, polite and knowledgeable. He helped break things down for me and is very responsive. He doesn't overcharge for random things like other attorneys typically do - he seems honest. I highly recommend him!

He gets what you need done!
Mr.Beckwith has been fluent in the process of getting my son's case reviewed and tried. He has been consistent in making sure that all information is updated for the preparation of the trial. My son is in good hands. Thank you Mr.Beckwith!

You good at what you do
Mr. Beckwith took a stand and stood beside me in a court of law 4yrs ago, and it's not a day goes by that I sit and reflect on the hard work and dedication he put toward on helping me out of a critical time in my life. Mr. Beckwith stood behind everything he said he would do. There was times I almost doubted this guy but it was apart of his plans. He told me he's putting in extra work, that I didn't see, to get the job done, and he did just that. From staying late reviewing my case, onto contacting my loved ones to update them on certain things. I could really say he fought for justice on my behalf. Mr. Beckwith stood tall and came out swinging for my freedom in trail, presenting FACTS and delivering quality edvindence to a grand jury. It was a honor to have someone like him in my corner. He was an court appointed lawyer at the time so I knew by seeing his hard work he placed forward only let me knew that he had a passion for what he did and that he stood behind his words. I thank Mr. Beckwith for representing me in a court of law and I recommend him to represent you if you need a spokesman in a court of law.

Mr. Beckwith can really litigate.
Mr. Beckwith really helped me out of a jam. I spoke with a public defender prior to hiring Mr. Beckwith. The Public Defender insisted that I accepted the deal being offered by the state. If I had taken his advice I’d have served some real jail time. As I write this review today, I’m a free man. Mr. Beckwith told me straight away he could win this case and he never left any doubt in my mind during the hearing. Thank you Mr. Beckwith. I feel like I owe you so much more than a thank you still, but thank you!

Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Mr. Beckwith is a top notch criminal defense attorney. I had the pleasure of sitting with him during a complex felony criminal case. Should he not received a very favorable outcome from the jury, his client would likely have been sent to prison for the rest of his life. Mr. Beckwith challenged all the State's evidence and meticulously pointed out to the jury all the failures in the State's case including the lack of investigation conducted by the police officers. During the short jury deliberations, the DA approached Mr. Beckwith and claimed he stepped over the line by questioning the police investigation. A few minutes later, the jury returned a not guilty. As Mr. Beckwith told the DA, if you are not challenging the police investigation you are not doing your job as a criminal defense attorney. Thus, I endorse Mr. Beckwith, who is willing to stand up to the DA, challenge the evidence and fight for his client's rights!"
