Quinton Washington and Team!!
Mr. Washington and his staff has set an example to what attorney/client truly means and they are a hard act to follow. The sincere involvement of every step of the case that he represented on behalf of my son gave me a sense of comfort. and hope. Mr. Washington communicated with us even on the weekends keeping us informed and answering any questions and concerns we may have had. His caring attitude and actions about the welfare and outcome of my son's case, gave me as a parent such a peace. He has stuck with us through it all and I wouldn't have anyone else represent us. The staff is very personable and caring I felt like part of the family they made sure that I was informed, they called me, email me back, and stayed on top of the situation. I am very confident recommending Mr. Washington to all that need representation and I believe you will not be disappointed. My family and I are very thankful to have been represented by a firm that presents excellence and projects what working with community truly means. It definitely takes a village, and I am so glad that they took care of us. If I could give them a million stars, they would have them!!!

One of Georgia's finest attorneys
Quinton Washington is one of Georgia's finest attorneys. He's represented my interests in a wide variety of legal matters, and has never disappointed. Furthermore, every time I have recommended him to a friend or colleague, the reviews have come back positive. I give Quinton Washington the highest marks.

One of the Best Young Attorneys in Atlanta!
Attorney Washington is the epitome of a lawyer. He is very astute, a good communicator, polished, and dependable. You can rest assured that you are in good hands with Quinton. I have used a few attorneys in the past and they left me with a lawyer phobia. Attorney Washington on the other hand, renewed my faith in the profession. He is professional, well connected, and caring. My case is very high profile and complex, but Attorney Washington has handled it with ease. He will be my go to attorney for life. I will refer him in a New York minute. If you have a small case or a large, complex, high profile case, call Bell and Washington. They get results!

Completely Satisfied Former Client
Attorney Washington handled my traffic violation and license reinstatement in a very timely fashion. I was able to keep my job and income as a result of his tenacity in my case. I would recommend him to anyone who needs good results fast.

Outstanding Legal Professional!
I have used the services of Bell & Washington personally and was very impressed with their ability to quickly and easily resolve legal matters; therefore, when a close friend was arrested for a DUI, Mr Washington was my first call. While I knew he good, I was amazed how great he really was. He listened to the facts, put us at ease and quickly resolved the matter, without my friend having to serve anytime in jail & still retaining his drivers license. I am truly amazed what he was able to do and price that he was able to do it for! We received the verdict that we wanted and for a very fare rate, something that I am not certain would have happen without Mr. Washington. Mr. Washington will always be MY attorney and the attorney that I recommend to everyone seeking excellence.

Quinton Washington!
Quinton and his staff were very dependable and kept me updated on my case. Not too mention his magic in the courtroom. He maneuvers as a pro. I got a verdict much quicker and easier than expected.

Poor Representation
Mr. Washington kept postponing the initial consultation for weeks until he finally agreed to meet 3 days before the hearing. At that time he gave us advice that would have been very valuable a month before the hearing, but was useless 3 days prior. At the hearing the prosecutor told the judge a big fat lie: that the police searched my son and found an illegal substance. The search found nothing and the police report did not say that it did. But Mr. Washington sent a junior associate in his stead to the hearing who had no familiarity with the case. The associate let the lie go unchallenged and my son got pretty severe punishment based on no evidence at all, just the prosecutor's lie. I would not recommend this firm to anyone.

Avoid Quinton Washington
Extorted money from me. He made promises to do certain things. Never did. Never showed up to my court case after giving him $12k Record him when you talk to him so you can sue him for malpractice later. He has no remorse for the disrespect for his clients and poor work ethics he has. Please contact me if you want to press a class action suit on him. There are so many things that he has done. It’s just deplorable.

Stay far away 0 stars if possible
This attorney is the worst I’ve had. First could not contact easily called both his and office number. Took a while year to file discovery which ended in motion to compel loss $8500 cost me. Offered me $1000 to settle which I can and will not . Furthermore his firm billed me for phone calls to me back to back with no response the same day. I’m a Disabled Veteran and a Dad of 2 boys. This attorney advertised family law and that he’s a dad and coach. Do not trust to do anything mentioned.
