Charlie is extremely knowledgeable, caring, compassionate and on top of the game. I highly recommend Charlie for any DUI case in Georgia. I am pleased with my results, thank you!

Hired this attorney with great expectations. But his interest for my case fizzed as the case progressed. I offered suggestions, as did my family, and he disregarded evidence that could have made a difference. Look for an attorney who stays committed to the end of your case and gives "his all" to see justice done.

If you are looking for the best DUI Attorney in Georgia, please contact Charlie Magarahan [censored] as soon as possible.
I am a CEO with several State licenses. I was arrested in the City of Alpharetta (Fulton, County) for DUI. I had a blood alcohol reading for 0.165, twice the legal limit.
At the recommendation from a friend, I met with Charlie and subsequently hired him for his services. He was expensive but I soon found out why.
I was arraigned in the City of Alpharetta and Alpharetta prosecutor would not deal or negotiate my charges down to a lessor offense. Charlie proposed the option of taking the case to Fulton County, risking a jury trial but also having time to find a reason to get the case dismissed or reduced.
He moved the case to Fulton County and after his own investigation, many legal motions, and rescheduling the case with Fulton County, I finally had my first appearance at a Motions hearing where Charlie got the case completely dismissed. That's right, no DUI, no time in jail, nothing on my record, and no lost professional licenses or embarrassment.
If you are wise, interview your attorney before hiring them or take my advise and hire Charlie Magarahan, the best DUI Attorney in Atlanta, Georgia.

Charlie is such a hardworking, results-driven attorney. He fights hard for his clients and there isn't a person in the legal community who can say a bad word about him! Just the other week he took a .265 breath test DUI case to trial...and WON! Charlie was the talk of the town after that case, and rightfully so!
