I was facing some serious charges: One Felony and 4 Misdemeanors. The recommendation by the prosecution was a year in Jail, The Felony charge and misdemeanors on my record, 3 years suspended license and 3 years felony probation, community service, and a huge fine. Since I was a repeat offender I thought I would lose my job (high paying) and have a felony for the rest of my life. That Felony would make the Finance degree I worked so hard to get worthless. From the beginning he was honest in what he felt he could do. He gave it to me straight and said regardless of the situation he would fight for me and negotiate with the prosecution to get the best outcome out of this situation. He gave me an hour long consultation for free! I had been to 2 other lawyers that promised me the world and never asked about my background. Ramon was the only one that was upfront about what to expect and he just seemed to ask me the right questions to make the best assessment of my situation. Not only that but his response time is incredible. I literally called at 1pm, talked to his secretary and had a call back within 30 min, and that response time stayed that way during my entire case. In the end he was able to get me: 5 months of work release which allowed me to keep my job and not miss anytime at work by avoiding straight jail time, only a 1,000 dollar fine, The entire Felony charge was taken off my record allowing me to keep my Job (cant work where I work with a felony) my license was only suspended for 1 year as opposed to 3. I still have probation but it is not intense probation, basically just pay the money and stay out of trouble and I will be put on non report and eventually taken off all together early. He did all of this with me being a repeat offender, already used pre trial intervention and first offender in other charges when I was younger. So I had to rely on Ramon's superb negotiation skills and he did it! I am forever in his debt. Thanks again!!

When faced with legal problems, I really felt that I was all alone. When I consulted with Ramon, I instantly felt at ease and as if a burden had been lifted. Ramon represented me with my legal issues and was able to have my case dropped to a traffic citation. I am so thankful everyday that God brought Ramon and myself together and made my life bearable while my case moved through the courts. Thank God there are great lawyers like Ramon who gave me the advice, support and knowledge I needed while representing me. He is a lawyer with lots of integrity and fights hard for his clients. I would recommend Ramon to all my friends and family.

Ramon is amazing. I went to get a consultation with him regarding my immigration case that was originally in Gwinnet and transferred to DeKalb county. He and his assistant were very helpful and honest. Even though I didn't hire them they gave me amazing advise and trust me they will not rip you off. I personally regret for not hiring Ramon and his assistant for my case. I hired a lawyer that knew a lot of judges in DeKalb county instead and didn't get anything with that. Ramon even met up with me on the weekend outside business hours and helped me understand my case and gave me info how to prepare my case. I would highly recommend him . There are so many lawyers out there that just want your money and that's it. Ramon is all about helping his clients. The best thing I like about him and his assistant that they both communicated with me via phone and email very fast and kept me posted and answered all my questions. Again I regret for not hiring them but we all live and learn. In the future I know to go to Ramon and go with my first instinct. Thank you Ramon and your assistant for being so professional and there for me even though I didn't hire you to represent me. This is the least I can do to thank both of you.

He has represented me on more than one occasion facing The State of Georgia. Ramon talks the talk and walks the walk. No secrets or surprises came from dealing with this attorney. BEST OF THE BEST

Last year I found myself on the wrong end of the law when I had engaged someone who had cut me off in a parking lot. I now was facing jail, fines and who knows what else. I cannot even begin to describe how remorseful and afraid I was. My family was also very afraid.
In the aftermath of my arrest, I was swamped with dozens of local attorneys touting low fees and sterling credentials through letters in what is called "jail mail". I called a couple of them only to quickly find out that they were too good to be true and could not be trusted to preserve my future. I prayed hard to be led to the best attorney I could find for my case and at a chance meeting I told of Ramon Alvarado by another attorney.
From my initial impression of Ramon, I found him to have a vast knowledge of the legal system and the local courts. He took the time to go over all of the details of my arrest and laid out to me all possible outcomes. While he never sugar coated anything at the same time he gave me hope and given the circumstances, it was a major win. He has this quite way going about his business that in the beginning made me feel that not much was going on to help me, but in reality this guy was a tornado behind the scenes. I thank God for putting this man in my path. There are no words to express my thanks for his hard work and dedication. He is of the highest integrity and professionalism. He is simply an amazing attorney. He is now considered part of my family. Thank you Ramon, your work has so much more meaning than you'll ever know.

I received a DUI charge in May of 2014 in Gwinnett County and I used Mr. Alvarado as my Lawyer. Initially when I got in touch with Mr. Alvarado, I felt as though my case was an open shut situation due to the fact that I had given the State all the evidence(Field sobriety, Breathalyzer, and a verbal confirmation that I had a drink earlier) they needed to prosecute me.
After hiring and going through the details of my case, Mr. Alvarado advised me that there may be an issue with how the officer came in contact with me and that it may have been done illegally. After much hard work from Mr. Alvarado, he was able to prove to the court/Judge that the Officer who pulled me over should not have done so in the first place. By proving this, he was able to get all the evidence against me thrown out and my DUI charge reduced to a simple Reckless driving ticket- which is fair since I did drink earlier that night.
Mr. Alvarado was very knowledgeable of the law and able to break it down in lament terms so I could easily understand it. He also took the time out of his busy schedule to keep me updated of all proceedings and motions as they took place. Finally, one of the major reasons I chose Mr. Alvarado to represent me was his pricing. Every lawyer that I called was charging me over $4,000 just to look at my case, Mr. Alvarado’s fee was way less than that and he had a more positive outlook to towards fighting my case and getting a favorable result.
This has been a learning experience for me and I will never put myself in this predicament again; but I can say without a shadow of a doubt, having Mr. Alvarado in your corner if you get a DUI charge will make the difference between a conviction or an acquittal.

Mr. Alvarado represented me very well for my DUI case and was knowledgeable about the law to point out flaws in the officers handling of the traffic stop which resulted in the judge ultimately dismissing my case and me getting off without a blemish on my record. Overall a very good lawyer and would highly recommend.

A friend of ours recommended Ramon Alvarado to us and we could not have had a better attorney. He was excellent.
Mr. Alvarado handled 2 cases for our son – a DUI and a probation violation.
During both cases Ramon kept us updated as to what was being done and made sure we understood everything. He always responded to our questions in a very timely manner.
When we went to court for the DUI, he showed how well he knows the law – A LOT. He was able to show that there was not enough evidence/cause for our son to be arrested and the charge was dismissed.
For the probation violation he told us from the beginning that the courts require less proof for the violation than the DUI. Meaning we could win the DUI but lose the violation.
I respect him for being honest and up front with us.
Ramon listened to what my son wanted and got my son a very good deal – better than what we were hoping for.
Hopefully we will not need his services in the future but if we do, he will be the one we call.
