I was recently involved with a legal delemma involving multiple jurisdictions and charges ranging from a DUI, other mistermeanors and multiple felonies. I immediately hired the Don Turner firm as my attorney and they did not waste any time to begin working on my case and this point is remarkable being that they usually have many case going on at the same time. They walked me through every process and procedure involving my situation and did not sugarcoat anything, which is a big deal to me. The Don Turner firm made me feel like family, and in addition, they are professional, efficient and actually genuinely care about their clients. I am happy to say that my particular case has been resolved better than i could have expected and it is because of the Don Turner Firm. I would hate to think of where i would be right now if it wasn't for Don and Manal of the Don Turner Firm.

The Don Turner Legal Team was hired to represent me in a Metro Atlanta traffic court. They did a good job representing me. They did a good job in keeping me informed about my case. The result of their work was a ruling fair to all parties.

I would not recommend hiring Don Turner as your defense attorney if you get a DUI.I realize times have changed and the penalties for driving under the influence are much greater,and in the end it's only your own fault,but Mr.Turner was no help at all,nor was his now partner Manal. Mr.Turner is the hardest person to get in touch with. After continuously calling him for three weeks before my court date,he called me back the day before the court date.On the court date, he didn't even show up nor had the common decency to let me know he wasn't going to be there. His attorney Manal told me of the possible outcomes and actions fifteen minutes before going into court. Manal's defense for my case wasn't even strong.
In the end,my actions cost me my license for 120 days,probation for a year,all the things you have to do with a normal DUI,and it also will permanently be on my record. In my opinion,I could have gotten this same outcome with an attorney provided by the state. It's not even the fact I spent so much time and money on Mr. Turner and Manal,it's how inconsiderate they both were. They say they care about their clients,but from their actions you could clearly tell this wasn't the case. I was just another client to them.I highly recommend not hiring them.

Don Turner has been my personal friend and go to criminal defense attorney for more than 20 years. Don responds promptly and continues to work miracles for me, my family, and friends I have recommended as well. Don fights for the rights of his clients, and his resolute determination is only matched by his legal proficiency, which is unmatched in the fields of criminal defense and DUI. Don’s record speaks for itself, but his ability to relate to all people and hear their needs, as well as being a staunch advocate for them is what makes him truly great. Don’s integrity is a monument in the legal profession, and his ability to handle confidential matters in a professional way is unparalleled. Aside from being a member of the ABA and the Georgia Bar, Don is affiliated with many other legal and social organizations which keep him up on new legal issues, as well as community concerns. Attorney Don Turner has my utmost endorsement, and I would recommend him to all.
