Because of Brian
Because of Brian I am a free man. If i would have had Brian as a trial lawyer i know i would have never been convicted in the first place Because he was my appeals lawyer, hard working, encouraging and genuine. I am a free man. I have a wonderful son, an amazing life and a great friend who gave me a hundred percent until I got home. He is my friend, worth more than I could ever repay.

Brian Steel has skill and integrity
Consult, hire, collaborate on your case with Brian Steel and he'll give you the best possible representation available, ime. He won't hold your hand. He won't understand your internal struggle. HIS job is to gather, organize and present evidence in competent fashion and he won't know what that is until he understands all the facts. It takes a while. There's a process. You'll have good days and bad days. Try to check your Nervous System at the door. Maybe take up yoga breathing, bc healthy coping strategies are important, ime Mr Steel's strengths are hiring good people, understanding how the system works, accepting that bitter truth and doing everything within legal parameters to bring about the best possible (fair) outcome. In fact, during jury deliberation Mr. steel might tell you "juries get it right most if the time." Take that as you will. Again, he's not there to hold your hand. Mr. steel won't auto-trust everything you say, so adjust expectations before meeting him. Acceptance is your friend. Some Prosecutors hide exculpatory evidence. Some don't. Steel says this with a shrug. I'm paraphrasing here, but you can't afford to lose your mind over that detail. Again, acceptance is your friend. IME, the really sharp attorneys, civil and criminal, require corroboration and evidence to prove/validate your case and they're not there to make you feel safe or good or.....believed. Mr. steel isn't playing at this. He's fully committed. He's a decent human being and your lucky if he's on your team, ime.

Criminal Defense Expert
No attorney is perfect. No attorney may (ethically) guarantee results. Some attorneys are better than others, and you have found one in Brian Steel. My experience is best summarized anecdotally. Sometimes the system gets it wrong, and they violate the law in the process. While I languished in prison, desperate for someone who would fight for me, I did significant research in the law library. Consistently I saw Mr. Steel's name. With that in mind, I sent my family his information. They were WOWED from the first meeting. Me? I was suspicious. I know that many criminal defense attorneys will take advantage of the family of criminal defendants, because they sense the desperation. When people heard I was represented by Mr. Steel, I was consistently told that I was going home. Pay him, they said, and you will go home. It took some time, but Brian Steel did exactly what he was paid to do. He did a lot of research; put his soul into my defense; and put me on a path to getting my life back. Brian will be a partner in your defense. Trust him and listen to him. He cannot promise you results, but I can promise you he will put forth effort. Call Brian and speak with him and his excellent staff. They will treat you with respect, and they will be honest with you. For what more could you ask?

The Best
I was charged with a Capital offense, and Mr. Steel and I both knew I was innocent. He helped me through and by the time a Grand Jury heard the case, they "No-billed" it, (threw it out). He is humanistic, and took great interest in my well-being during all of this legal mess.

Criminal Defense at a high level
Brian Steel represented me very favorably in 2008 in a criminal case. He practices exclusively in the area of criminal defense. I did a lot of legal research before I selected him and found that he has by far more cases each year in front of the Georgia Supreme Court and Court of Appeals that any other criminal defense lawyer in Georgia. When I discussed my case and other precedent legal cases affecting mine with him before hiring him, he knew the case law that would help me better than anyone else I interviewed.

The most knowledgeable, hardworking, honorable lawyer you will ever encounter
Mr. Steel has integrity and honor and a reputation for success to go with it. He is hardworking and will do everything within the parameters of the law to exonorate his clients. There simply is no better lawyer.

3 star for Brian steel so far because he said he wouldn’t stop fighting for Thug until his last drop of blood and that’s a pretty hard line.

Poor Lawyer
I hired Brian Steel of the Steel Law firm on Peachtree St. He is a criminal defense lawyer. In my opinion Brian is not a good attorney. I was locked up when I hired him. He refused to come see me even once. Once he got my money (a lot of money) he ignored me. He refused to listen to me and my story and did what he wanted and we lost. Go elsewhere.

Whites only.
Has no regard for non whites. Non white appellants would be better without his 'assistance'.
