As the mother of a 47 yr old who is a felon with dual diagnoses of addiction and a severe psychiatric disorder, we are well acquainted with defense attorneys.
When attorney Saraliene Durrett took our case, she gave us hope because she listened, ferreted out the truth, and presented our case in a way that the judge listened to her plea.
My daughter was not returned to jail for more punishment. She was entered into a Cobb County Mental Health program where she is schooled for 8 hrs per day. She attends court one day a week and is randomly tested for drugs. In addition, a pharmacy supplies her medications for her seizures at a reduced
Kudos to this brilliant woman who has always
believed in justice. She fought hard for my daughter, the overlooked "underdog."

If you're looking for someone that you feel that would go out they way by all means. I recommend Mrs. Durrett. She is outstanding. Fought until she felt that it was fair. For that I'm forever grateful. If ever in anymore trouble she would be the first I would call.Thanks for all your hard work you're greatly appreciated.

I wholeheartedly endorse Saraliene for criminal defense work and appeals. She is patient, effective, and detail-oriented, but she's also ready to fight for her clients. She truly cares about her clients and how their cases effects their lives. Whether you need representation on a new case, or you want her to work the appeal on an older matter, she will provide excellent representation.
