Help with a Court Case
My good friend recommended I seek Ray Giudice's help, and I'm thankful she did! Everyone I communicated with at Ray's office was professional, courteous, and committed to see my issue through to completion. Certainly believe you'd experience the same.

Great and organized lawyer
I used Giudice in 2003 and yes it took me all these years to write a review. He did get my case expunged. I did something that was stupid. I needed a copys of my expungement and I contacted his office. They went out of there way to get the case number and locate the expungement records that I lost. His staff was organized and extremely polite. They didn't charge me and I offered to pay. Another office would of took the money, so yes they deserve a 5 star and he won my case. I have also refer another case to him and he won that case to.

I'll admit, I was guilty... Ray was fabulous!
After making a series of poor decisions that led to a 1st Degree Forgery Felony charge, unlike most, I admitted I messed up, I was guilty, Ray was able to give me the advice that I needed to get the best deal from the Courts that I could have expected. Yes, I'll serve out my probation time, 5 years but available to get off in 3 and my fine was assessed. With Ray's expertise, I was able to get a First Offender's status and my records were sealed by Judge's order to the day I appeared in Court. Once I've completed my probation, this will be completely gone from my record and prevent my future from being a complete catastrophe. Best of all, I never felt judged by him of his office staff. They were completely professional. Thank you Ray.

Finance Professional
Ray was great from the beginning. I was freaking out about my situation (DUI) but he explained the situation to me and put me at great ease. He even allowed me to set up a payment plan to pay for the bills for his services. Throughout the entire court process he kept me updated and informed. He beat my case with a perfect result. I highly recommend him!

Parents Piece of Mind
There will come a time when you get "that call" from your child telling you they have been arrested. You are shocked, panicked, and not sure what to do. Ray advertises his cell number, hard to fathom in this day and age, so I called it at 9:30 pm. Ray answered! He was understanding, compassionate, and helped me navigate a tough night. It's only been 3 days, but Ray and his team acted immediately, and we are well on the way to getting this resolved for my child and securing their future. 3 days! Many of my friends are local lawyers, some very well known, and I've known them for years. Even so, If I ever need someone to come to my aid, my call will be to Ray. If you're a parent, yours should be too.

I have known Ray for 30 years Whose Child Was Also A Clientl
Ray and I have been co-counsel on several civil cases together. Ray is very respected by other attorneys, prosecutors and Judges. I have seen this first hand over and over during many years practicing as colleagues on many civil case. He is so grounded and effective in those civil cases that he handles that I hired Raymond when one of my children was stopped for having a banned substance in their vehicle. Ray effectively counseled my child as a good lawyer would do, gave him the options available and was invaluable in discussing the best result. He was able to convince the prosecutor to resolve the charges in a way that was in everyone's best interest. His professional skills are amazing and hiring anyone else would have been a colossal mistake.

Absolutely Amazing
He deserves even more than excellent. He's so patient and understanding. I had a nasty DUI situation and he showed me every option and wen't over what would be the best and gave me every recommendation. Him and his staff were there to answer every question no matter what time of day. He was beyond excellent. I couldn't ask for a better turn out and situation. He handled everything with care and treated me with the utmost respect. Ray and his entire team are fantastic. Take it from a female who was apprehensive at first I'm so glad I called and hired him. He's the best you can get!

If you go somewhere else you will be sorry
Ray and his team have been by far the best experience with an attorney and its firm. From day 1 Ray was upfront on expectations and our approach to a DUI charge in Atlanta. I spoke with several attorneys in the Atlanta area and when I Contact Ray he took time out his weekend to meet with me on Saturday morning to go over the consultation. After speaking with him for only a few minutes I knew he would do his best to provide the best outcome possible for my case. I hired Ray on the spot and happy to say my case was dismissed yesterday. if you need legal assistance you will not find a better lawyer and firm to represent all your needs and keep you informed and discuss your best options every step of the way. if you choose another lawyer you will be sadly misrepresented. Thank you Ray and your staff for the excellent experience which truly put me at easy during this stressful time.

The best around - PERIOD!
I couldn't be more thankful for Ray and his extremely knowledgeable team. Not only was I informed every step of the way - things actually got easier to deal with because I knew with 100% certainty I was in good hands. These guys literally saved my future and I would recommend calling Ray and his team before contacting anyone else. Thanks Ray, Patrick

"Top Notch"
During a hard time in my sons young adult life Ray proved to be extremely knowledgeable and confident. He kept me updated on the process and was very compassionate of what our family was facing. With this said many years later my son has a great job and a chance of living a good life without any blemish on his record. I can not thank him enough.

Incredible DUI/DWI Lawyer
Ray and his team did an incredible job with my case. Ray was well versed with the many intricacies of the legal system in both Atlanta City Court and also Fulton County Court. His confidence throughout the entire case was always very reassuring and he conducted himself professionally at all times. He provided me with his email and cell phone up front and I was able to communicate directly with him via text/phone/email at all times. Once in court, Ray did an incredible job getting me the best possible outcome for my case - I could not be happier. I was very impressed with how he handled my case and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DUI/DWI lawyer.

Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 18
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Ray and I were in law school at Emory together. I have referred over 50 cases through the past 25 years to Ray. These referred clients often take the time to call me and thank me for the referral to Ray. Ray is tough, fair, timely and well respected by criminal defense lawyers, judges and prosecutors alike. Ray does not hesitate to go to trial but more often than not is able to persuade the prosecutor or judge of a resolution that does not involve incarceration yet addresses the underlying issues, i.e., drug or alcohol addiction. I have personally see Ray work "miracles" for people who would be in prison for a minimum of 3 years. In exchange, Ray insists that these people take advantage of the "gift" they were given by the Courts and insist that they complete treatment - something that Judges in Georgia take note of. I send all of my clients and friends who require assistance on a criminal matter to Ray Giudice without hesitation."
