Mr. Lawson and Sarah are extremely straightforward and highly immersed in the DUI category. I researched over a dozen top 10's and am very pleased with Mr. Lawson. His work is diligent, Eagle stroke quality and relieving. I fretted and freaked about a barely DUI being new to Georgia and being in a new state and society, I had No clue to what was and wasn't. But, I knew that my butt was covered legally by Mr. Lawson and never lost a wink of sleep due to their up-front, no nonsense approach. Laid all the cards down, fired every possible question I could think of, basically interviewed these guys and today, success! They reduced an out of town DUI to Reckless and saved every bit of my driving and personal privileges and rights, other than probation. And if ever I know of someone in this situation, no question I'd recommend, more like demand there is no other to go with. Bravo Zulu Richard and Sarah, and good job on your Bar Sarah, well done! Another to add to the ranks of legal success. Thank you again. Tony S.

A Big Thanks to Richard Lawson. I messed up after 34yrs and got a super speeder ticket and a DUI. Richard was able to get the speeding ticket dropped and the DUI reduced to a reckless driving. Saving my CDL and my job of 21yrs.. Thanks again.!!

I was charged with a Dui in Georgia as an out of state business traveler. This was my third DUI charge overall and I was charged with DUI Drugs Less Safe for falling asleep at the wheel while driving to my work location. Needless to say, this looked really bad on paper and I was terrified. I hired Richard and his assistant Sarah to help mitigate the consequences of this charge. Richard got my charge reduced to a reckless operation, I never had to go back to Georgia and paid a $1000.00 Fine with no probation. I did have to complete a 20 hr driving class that I completed in my home state and 40 hours of community service. I highly recommend not getting a DUI, but in this society, it is easier than anyone realizes. If you are looking for a DUI Attorney in GA, stop looking, hire Richard and try to relax. Everything is going to be alright. Thanks Richard and Sarah!

Mr. Richard S. Lawson and Mrs. Sarah Illg can be summed up in two words "first class". They are professionals and worked quickly to ensure that I got the results that I needed in order to save my military career. I was never left out of the loop and they were quick to guide me in the right direction. I can't thank them enough for the help they provided me with. I would recommend Mr. Lawson to all of my friends and family.

After hitting a building with my car I was arrested for a DUI. I was scared. The first thing I did was call Richard Lawson. He listened to me with a kind disposition. I felt immediately at ease. He gave me wonderful advice and refered me to a lawyer who works on his team. I had no time to wait for the arraignment date because I was moving out of the country with my family. This team made it happen! My DUI was reduced to a Reckless Driving charge. I was able to move with my family and keep my license. Calling Richard Lawson's firm was the best decision I could have made. I am very grateful for everything.

Richard and his staff are the legal representation you need to have. Richard represented me in a second DUI case and I was from out of state. I saw Richard in action and could tell he was held in high regard with the prosecutors and judge. He knew his way around the law and was able to get me a plea that reduced the consequences in the area that I told him would be the greatest risk to my livelihood and my life. What he told me would most likely happen to my jail time, I didn’t believe, but he was right. Beforehand I mentioned staff, and by staff, I mean Sarah. I really didn’t get to know Richard too well until court time. That was not because Richard was not available, he is 24/7, it is because Sarah was able to answer all my questions and concerns and dealt with Richard when necessary. It was great to have a one stop shop to have all my concerns dealt with, without chasing someone down. And by concerns, I mean many. Being out of state made everything more complicated. I had to book flights and plan hotel stays to match what may or may not happen. I had multiple concerns about what the outcome would be. Sarah never complained about my questions and always dealt with my concerns in an upbeat manner that calmed me and made me feel more confident. If you are looking for a lawyer, do what I did, read all the reviews and then hire Richard and staff (ask to have Sarah).

My DUI was my first encounter with the legal system. I hired Richard due to his excellent web site, which I hoped wasn't just hype. As I completed the tasks Richard recommended I began to question if I really needed a DUI "specialist". My court date was yesterday and I had resigned myself to the fact that I was looking at a 4-6 month license suspension and 12 months of reporting to a parole officer at $40-$50 a visit. With Richard doing "his thing" at court my DUI was reduced to reckless driving-no license suspension, which would have been a huge embarrassment (no way to hide it from friends and family) - and no having to report monthly to a parole officer. ( this is me doing my happy dance!). Don't hesitate. This DUI "specialist" is WELL WORTH THE MONEY!

I was arrested on Thanksgiving day of 2016. Pulled over for speeding in tallulah falls by two state troopers and ended up in jail with a charge of speeding, DUI less safe (for marijuana), and possession of grinder with residue. Being 20 years old (under 21) I was supposed to automatically get my license suspended no matter what since I was arrested with a DUI. I found Richard Lawson and the ratings and went with my gut feeling to hire him after speaking with his amazing partner Sarah Illg. Every single dollar was worth it with this case. You can make money back but you can't get your record clean once it's dirty. Sarah helped me every step of the way and was AMAZING with communication and keeping in contact. She is responsive and professional while also friendly and relatable. Hiring Richard Lawson was one of the best decisions I could have ever made considering he was able to get my DUI down to the best possible result possible......a reckless driving BUT under a city ordinance and not a state violation!!! Meaning my record is basically clean. And even though I was under 21 I got to keep my license! Incredible. No probation, no points on my license. My speeding and possession of drug related objects was completely out of the picture. This is pretty much the best outcome that could have ever happened. I will not be making this same mistake again but if you have, Richard Lawson is WORTH it 100%. He knows it all when it comes to this part of the law. He has the right experience and it shows. I had never been more afraid when going to court and we were basically in and out of there. He talked to the judge and some others for a while and within minutes he told me the news. I have never cried from happiness like that before. I could not make this stuff up. Sarah Illg was the best person to have by my side during the four dreadful months of waiting for court and I am beyond thankful for this outcome. Thanks again you guys. Would never recommend anyone else!

This was a first offense DUI. I'm under 21 and it was scary. Not only did Mr. Lawson represent me on the DUI but also assisted with posting bond and my release from jail. My parents were out of the country and his office navigated the whole thing. My case was handled professionally and I feel as though his services changed my life. I don't believe anyone else could have worked with the prosecutor to negotiate the details of my case. Everyone in his office cared about the details on my case and my parents and I never felt rushed when asking tons and tons of questions. They were patient and took care to educate us on what everything meant and how these charges would impact the rest of my life. Court was intense and I was so happy he was there and on our side. He knows what he's doing and is respected among his peers and the court. We knew we were in good hands. I can't believe the outcome. I never imagined I would have a second chance to walk away from a terrible mistake. I am grateful to his office and highly recommend Mr. Lawson.

Richard Lawson's law firm is one of the finest in Georgia. Mr. Lawson combines great legal skill and genuine compassion for clients like myself.
I was facing a DUI charge that was overwhelming. Fortunately, the DUI charge was dismissed due to Mr. Lawson's knowledge, experience, and professionalism. During this ordeal, I felt a sense of peace and confidence that the case would have a positive result because of Richard Lawson's prosecutor background. Sarah,Richard's law clerk, was instrumental in making sure that I knew what was happening every step of the way. Also, she outlined steps that I needed to take before my court date. Great Advice! Through her calm demeanor and reassuring words of encouragement, she always would leave me feeling confident.
Richard and Sarah are down to earth folks helping their fellow man through tough situations. Your case is a priority and through a team effort, you will receive your desired outcome.
