My son has hope again
I would like to start off by saying Mr. Sydnor did an excellent job on my sons case. He made sure that he clearly understood what was going on and the possible outcome could be. The charges we were facing came with a lengthy sentence. So much for a young boy his age to be looking at. However with the blessings of God working thru Mr. Sydnor, a miracle happen for my family from what we were facing to what we ended with. He was very upfront with us about what he can and can not do. The time he spent working on his case and helping out the other lawyer,especially being that we were not in the local Atlanta metro area. Thanks to Mr. Sydnor 2 boys out of the 3 will see family an share holidays again. We got off to a rocky start but the ending result could not have pleased us more. Thank you again Mr. Sydnor for all you did.

This man saved my life
Not only did he fight and do a job I couldn't ask another to do. He was available anytime, well respected in the court house, really evaluated and turned every stone for a chance, almost felt as if he was Superman. He tell you something it gets done. I was facing 50 yrs he proved my innocence like it was him on trial. Thnx Clarence Sydnor . His staff is the best at what they do!!!!

To begin to tell you the measure of stress I'd gone through over the last 2-1/2 yrs of my case is this: Have a Compound Fracture. Now re-break and pull it through your skin every month for 2 full years!!!!! (Stitches are available however, you can touch yet not use them). After hiring my very FIRST Attorney, who NEVER showed up to my Preliminary hearing, having that case bonded over and later hire a SECOND attorney whom did their share for 1-1/2 years, only to ask me to settle when it came time to up the heat for Trial. Mr. Sydnor was my THIRD & FINAL attorney and when I say with exceptional and impeccable talent and a close team of counsels whom I deem more like Seal Team 6, within my 1st meeting with him, Mr. Sydnor was able to brainstorm my case within a couple hours which took my previous attorney ONE FULL YEAR!!!! PLEASE understand that for 2 charges, I was facing 40/yrs!!! And when my previous counsel spoke of settling, Mr. Sydnor chose to fight. AND FIGHT HE DID!!!!!! He PROVED that he and his team are LITERALLY the MMA No Holds Bar Champions of Trial Cases and I am not only a free man, but I have my family back. He took the time to educate me on the entire process after only having my case to include the start of Trial for 14 DAYS!!! Don't just hire Mr. Clarence Sydnor if you want results, hire him because you ***NEED*** REAL RESULTS!!!

Attorney Sydnor did an awesome job with my case. He explained the entire process and potential outcomes to me upfront . I didn't feel any pressure or surprises along my process. He was always very professional and thorough but what stood out was how relatable he was to me. I never felt judged for my situation and in court he was so sharp! Everything flowed with ease and I felt peace of mind once everything was settled. I received more than I would have without an attorney and it was a much smoother process.

Awesome Lawyer
Great lawyer!! Took care of my traffic case with ease and also helped me understand the legal process from the beginning to the end and he did all this hundreds of miles away from me where I didn't have to take off from work. Well recommended by me.

I would like too first THANK you for your efforts you put into my case. You acknowledge, assist, and appreciate. Those are key elements on retaining clients. Most don't offer feedback when things are good but I decided you was worth taking the time to thank. Thank you for following up with me. You were efficient on keeping up with dates, times, and contact information. You are very knowledgeable when defending a client. You listened and asked me questions to know how to defend or respond to your case. I would use you again and again. I will also be referring you to anyone that mentions they need a lawyer. I wish you all success in your journey through life. You were great. I want you to know I'm thankful for having the opportunity to handle business with you.

Criminal defense
He is a good lawyer but has ego issues He is willing to be your lawyer until you piss him off , I sat in jail for 2 days ‘lost my job because his office failed to tell me I had a court date that obviously wasn’t on my calendar . The judge chewed him out ‘let me out of jail’ he ended up resigning himself off the case with no refund !

Takes Cash and Dashes!
I hired Clarence Sydnor to handle my personal injury claim on November 25, 2017. When we settled on May 2, 2018 he forged my name on the check cash it and has yet to pay me my portion. I wouldn’t recommend using them at all if you want to get your money.

Car accident Attorney | Feb 15
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Clarence Sydnor is a very strong advocate for his clients. He is detail oriented, treats each client like they are his only client, and works hard to successfully resolve cases. If the case doesn’t resolve, he has no trouble taking the case to trial, and representing clients in court. He and I tried a case against each other last year (it was my first jury trial) and he was professional throughout the entire trial. He is also very charismatic, and worked well with his co-counsel throughout the trial. I recommend this attorney."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Clarence has an undeniable "it" factor. From the inception of every case he takes the time to understand the facts and put a plan in place to get the best result for his clients. Most impressively, Clarence has a firm courtroom presence. He is always ready for trial and makes excellent presentation for the judge on behalf of all of his clients. As a friend and fellow attorney, I proudly endorse Attorney Sydnor."
