BEST DUI ATTORNEY IN GA
I hired Greg and his team to help me on two separate DUI charges I was facing. In neither case was I convicted with a DUI. People make mistakes, but Mr. Willis will truly fight for you to have your life back. Both cases were dropped to reduced charges.

Greg Willis is an excellent lawyer. He works long hours and fights like a bulldog to get the most favorable outcome. He is ruthless in the chess game he plays moving your case through the court phases. His trial preparation is so brilliant that he forces the state’s hand to negotiate a favorable plea. He knows case law very well and will not hesitate to take your case to the Supreme Court, if necessary. He is simply a brilliant lawyer.

Above and Beyond
Greg worked tirelessly for 3 years on my case! In the end he succeeded in having my charges reduced and we were successful in getting the outcome we wanted. He went above and beyond in his arguments and advocacy of me as his client. He also treated me with kindness and understanding when my son was in hospital and we had to reschedule a court appearance. I am so grateful for Greg and cannot recommend him enough. He will fight for you and make sure you feel like valued person the entire time!! Do not hesitate, HIRE GREG!

Highly Recommended
I hired Greg Willis about 2-3 years ago. He delivered on everything he spoke on. Greg and his team provided exceptional professional services & fought very hard for both of my cases which resulted in a reduction & dismissal. If you are ever facing a DUI/DWI, I highly recommend Greg Willis and his team!

Exceptional Service
My DUI case has gone on for nearly 4 years and we completed it on Tuesday with GREAT results. It was a difficult case with the odds stacked against me. Throughout the process, Greg encouraged me to keep doing the right thing, and for me to continue to work on my personal situation. Meanwhile, he fought hard for me and continued to strive for the best result until the morning of my court appearance. I would NOT hesitate to refer him and his efficient team to anyone who needs his services!

Best Result Possible
I retained Greg for a BUI case and he secured the best result possible under Georgia law. For context, I own a cigarette boat on Lake Lanier. It's big, its loud, and it turns heads everywhere it goes. One day, the boat attracted the wrong attention. DNR officials saw a lot of beer cans, assumed fire from smoke, and I was arrested for BUI. I am an Atlanta-based attorney and I wanted to ensure I had top-tier representation. I called all the DUI heavy-hitters and Greg had the best strategy. Greg hit the ground running and ultimately got my case dismissed with record restriction. Stroll up to the clerk's office ask them to pull my file, you won't find a thing. As the title of my review conveys, this was literally the best result possible because even a "not guilty" jury verdict would still leave the arrest/record of my case open to public viewing. Greg is a veteran of DUI/BUI law and a total courtroom bulldog. Greg went the extra mile for me, and I recommend with confidence that he will do the same for you.

Greg and his team are absolutely incredible. Greg explained everything to me in detail, as this is the first ever time I have been arrested. Regular updates throughout the process which allowed me to get on with everyday life. 200% I would recommend Greg and his team to anyone with a DUI case.

The best attorney you can hire!
I was facing DUI - Acohol & DUI - Drugs, plus multiple traffic violations. Both of my charges were dismissed in state court. I ended up with a single traffic violation & no additional penalties, or fines! Greg fought relentlessly for me, until the very end of my long case. Mr. Willis is the absolute best at what he does.

Don't mess around with your freedom and driving privileges
I cannot say enough about how absolutely amazing my experience was with Mr. Willis and his team. From the beginning they worked relentlessly to ensure my case was resolved in the most desirable manor possible. I am endlessly grateful to have had him and his team on my side for my DUI case. Everyone makes mistakes, and some are worse than others. DUI charges are nothing to joke about. They can have a seriously detrimental impact on your life in several ways for a very very long time. Your freedom, driving privileges, employment eligibility, and car insurance rates are just a few of the many aspects of your life that can be negatively impacted in vastly terrible ways. I had a situation during my case where my license was suspended before I even went to a court date or administrative hearing completely unknowingly to me. I contacted Sarah and she responded to me right away. She was extremely concerned with this and did everything in her power to help me get my license back as soon as possible and keep me out of jail. The first time I went to court Mr. Willis negotiated my DUI charge down to reckless driving and had all the rest of my charges, which were serious, dropped entirely. That was before we had ever spoken I'm person. I walked in, sat down for MAYBE 20 minutes, my name was called, he pulled me out of the courtroom, shook my hand and introduced himself, and informed me that he had already negotiated the best possible deal I could realistically imagine possible. I was essentially speechless. My entire court experience was one of the most emotional experiences I ever had in my life. The shear happiness, rejoice, and sense of relief within me after finalizing my plea deal with the judge brought tears to my eyes. I was so elated I hugged Mr. Willis. The day I was arrested and charged with DUI was the worst day of my life. The day Mr. Willis made that go away was the best. I will never forget. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude towards him and his wonderful team full of talent, dedication, and kindness. I'm conclusion, if you or anybody you know is ever charged with a DUI or DWI, and you value your freedoms as an American, do yourself the wondrous favor of hiring the superstar attorney Greg Willis and his amazing team of excellence as your legal defense. They are undoubtedly the best legal defense available point blank period. You will not regret it I can assure you that beyond doubt.

Best Defense Lawyer I've Ever Met!
Greg Willis is great at what he does. He kept me calm and informed throughout the whole process. I never lost confidence in him and his capability to successfully represent me. The whole team at Willis Law Firm did a great job with my case. I was very impressed by the open communication between his office and myself. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

The best in the state of GA
I have hired Greg twice and both times the results were absolutely the best outcome I could have hoped for. The first case was easier for Greg to handle but I still wanted the confidence of knowing I had the best representation. The second case was much more difficult but Greg still got the best possible outcome. I'm confident I would not have got the results I needed for my family, career and standing in the community if I had hired a cheaper and less experienced lawyer. During the evidence trial Greg overwhelmingly displayed his knowledge of GA DUI laws by presenting several challenges that ultimately led to my DUI being dismissed. I owe an extreme gratitude to Mr Willis for representing me. I recommend Greg 1000% and only him. Also, I personally know 2 other individuals that have received the same results after hiring Greg Willis. He is worth significantly more than what he charges. In the grand scheme of life it is a very small price to pay for something that could follow you forever. Don't overthink it, just hire Greg and pay whatever his rate is if he is available and can take your case.

Willis for the win!!!
Greg Willis is the man! He is by far top notch in his field and the best legal representation you could ask for when dealing with a DUI charge. He has represented myself and a number of my friends. In all cases, not one person was charged with a DUI. Just follow his advice and let him take care of the rest. He has great rapport in and out of the courtroom. I am very thankful for his services and appreciate all he has done for my situation.

Judge referred me to Greg and we won
I got numerous referrals but my friend who is a judge said he wouldn't consider anyone other than Greg Willis. I listened and my DUI was dismissed. He won a case at the Supreme Court that changed everything in my case. I don't understand it all but we won based on Greg's famous Elliott case that everyone was talking about in court.

Get Greg. Period.
You would about have to be crazy not to retain Greg as your attorney if you have been charged with a DUI. I was facing some pretty serious time and Greg was able to get it reduced to a way lesser offense that didn’t even go on my driving record. If you have ever been to jail, you know this is not the time to price shop. You get what you pay for. I believe his numbers and reviews online are 100% accurate. He is the real deal. I shopped and interviewed several other attorneys and he is, by far, the best. He and his TEAM actually investigate the entire thing. They went through radio chatter records, police reports, 4th amendment issues, etc, etc. Most attorneys are looking for a settlement. Greg and his team are fighting for their client!!! I can not recommend him enough. I read reviews, looked at stars, googled, everything I could, and I’m telling you- Go with Greg. Between jail, dui school, fines, insurance, Interlock devices, counseling, court appearances, probation, suspended sentences...... you do not want to take this lightly. His statistics are legit!!! I’m convinced he will go down as one of the all-time greats!!!
