A HAPPY HOLIDAY INDEED
I'LL BE BRIEF...TRAVIS TOWE IS AN ACCEPTIONAL INDIVIDUAL AND LAWYER. HE WAS VERY DILIGENT, PROMPT, AND SHOWED GENUINE CONCERN,...EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. MY SITUATION WAS IN REALITY TO GO AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT DIRECTION; E.G. SIX MONTHS SUSPENDED LICENSE UP TO $1,000 IN FINES; AMONG WHATEVERELSE THE JUSTICE SYSTEM WAS WITHIN ITS RGHTS TO DO. INSTEAD, FOR A HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT...I WAS ABLE TO WALK AWAY WITHOUT AS MUCH AS A TICKET....AT THIS TIME; I HAD A NEWBORN ON THE WAY, A TRANSITION TO A NEW POSTION WITHIN THE CORPORATION I WORK, AND SOME UNFINISHED BUSINESS IN MY PERSONAL LIFE NEEDING TO ATTEND TO BEFORE MOVING FORWARD COMPLETELY...WHICH WAS A VALUABLE LESSON HERE DON'T PUT ANYTHING OFF (PROCRASTINATE). YOU ONLY HAVE TO HANDLE IT LATER; SO I AM TRULY GREATFUL FOR THE ANGEL SENT MY WAY, TO HIS SERVICES. NOW, HE'S LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER. IF ANYONE NEEDS HELP, HE WILL BE THE FIRST WE CALL! HE WAS WORTH THE PENNY AND TIME. A TRUE BLESSING TO MY LIFE AS WELL AS OTHERS AROUND ME. CRAZY THING IS, HE HAS INSPIRED ME TO FURTHER MY EDUCATION TO HELP OTHERS; THE WAY HE HAS HELPED ME! WITH THAT BEING SAID, AND DONE, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ATTORNEY WILLIAM TRAVIS TOWE FOR ANYONE WHO NEEDS SOMEONE TO HANDLE BUSINESS!

Great Outcome
This is the 2nd time I hired Travis and just like the 1st time he got me an excellent outcome. He is very straightforward and cares about his clients input. He has a great relationship with the judges and prosecutors in Fulton and that proved to be very helpful. I would strongly encourage anyone in legal trouble to hire him. He is also fairly and reasonably priced. Great attorney!

DUI and Felony Reduced
My Life became unmanageable and about two years ago (2019) when I was involved in a car accident for which I was arrested and charged with DUI and felony possession. I knew I needed a lawyer; soon after I posted bail my mailbox began to be flooded with attorney brochures and I began calling each one. Each lawyer I called seemed to just want money, and talked above my knowledge level one after the other, so I kept calling until one lawyer actually had a concerned and compassionate conversation with me. His name is Travis Towe. He immediately asked me for all of my arrest paperwork and discussed payment arrangements with me that I could afford! He recommended that I go to a treatment center while he dealt with the courts. He kept track of my progression through treatment and answered every call or text I sent him. In April 2021 Mr. Towe went to court with me and my DUI was reduced to a lesser charge, and my felony was reduced to a lesser charge. This means that I can still work professionally and have my rights as a U.S. citizen. Mr. Towe fought for me and guided me at a low point in my professional life. Though my road to recovery is difficult, I could not imagine having made it this far without him on my side!
