Look no further for a great attorney
I hired Mr. Horlick last year after getting a second DUI within 10 years (not proud of this, obviously) and I couldn't be happier with the work he did. He did all he could to help me get the best possible outcome in this unfortunate situation and lets just say that I was very pleased with the results. He was always sympathetic to my situation and never made me feel as though I was bothering him with questions and general ignorance of possible scenarios and/or outcomes. Hiring a lawyer in these types of situations is never cheap. Thankfully, I was able to pay him in monthly installments that we both agreed upon so that the financial hit wasn't so hard on me. I highly suggest hiring Mr. Horlick.

Excellent Legal Support
We hired Robert to resolve a legal matter involving our son. I work with many attorneys in my line of work and Robert ranks in the top tier on technical skills. However what really sest Robert apart from everyone else is his approachability. He takes quality time to explain, in layman terms, the legal process and the theory behind it. He does not make you feel inferior for asking questions. In the end, we had a very good outcome with our matter. I would highly recommend Robert.

Juvenile Traffic Defense
We hired Robert for our son who had a few traffic violations and was required to go to court. He was a great help in answering our questions before court and in representing my son who was understandably nervous and worried about what his penalties would be. Robert had prior work experience with the court staff which was very helpful in getting in ahead of time to meet with the judge and that was instrumental in helping my son minimize his penalty and keep his license. He was so relieved! I honestly do not think it would have been possible without this attorney's help.

Mr. Horlick did an amazing job as my council and representing me in my DUI case. I had many cards stacked against me yet he was able to negotiate a very favorable disposition on my behalf. I am now able to clear the past moving forward in a sober and productive manner. He kept me informed and had genuine care regarding my case.

Great communicator, Flexible, all around Great Lawyer
Robbie came highly recommended to me from a friend after a night out turned in me being accused of DUI and a slew of other charges. From the very beginning, Robbie was patient, professional, flexible, and explained everything in great detail throughout the entire process. He showed up on time, did what he said he was going to do and in my case charges go reduced. I would/will (and have) highly recommend him to anyone. The courtroom is a daunting place and I'm sure glad I had him there to help me through.

DUI Representation - Highly Recommended
In my line of work, I work daily with several attorneys throughout the United States. I work in a totally different field than what my family needed Robbie for, but I'm familiar with how attorneys operate. Robbie is one of the most professional attorneys I have ever met and is very knowledgeable in his field. He is always available when you need him, very responsive, very reliable and very comfortable to work with in trying situations. I highly recommend Robbie and his expertise.

Teenage Error in Judgement, Successfully Defended
My 18 year old son was arrested by a city municipality for possession of less than an ounce of a controlled substance. Getting ready to graduate from high school and enter into college in the Fall, not to mention future employment possibilities, having any record of being arrested would not be favorable for him. Robbie was instrumental in counseling us as to what we needed to do prior to my son's court date and was pro-active in getting my son into a pre trial diversion program that when successfully completed will allow this charge against my son to disappear and never be shown in a background check. To be this young and have a full life ahead of him with so many possibilities, my son will be able to apply for schools, jobs and such without having to explain a teenage misjudgment on his record. Robbie is very professional and obviously very good at what he does; but not only that, he takes his time with you to make certain you are aware of what you may be facing and is available to communicate with you at any time you may have questions, concerns or just need comfort in knowing that someone "has your back". I hope that I don't have to hire Robbie again to defend anyone in my family in a court of law, but if that need every arises again, he would be the first person that I would contact for help.

Great lawyer, very understanding, I owe him everything
Robert was able to help me in my DUI case when I thought all help was lost; I called him the morning after the incident with the worst situation in mind, but with his advice I was able to take care of most of my sentence by the day of the initial arraignment. With his advice and expertise, I was able to minimize fines and have 90% of everything I would have been court-ordered to do finished before-hand.

Extremely helpful
Mr. Horlick made himself available to me whenever I needed—I work long hours, and he was more than willing to meet outside of normal business hours or on weekends to discuss my case, and he was always extremely easy to reach. He's very knowledgable, trustworthy and friendly, and willing to answer any questions I had about the legal process. I would definitely recommend him if you find yourself in the unfortunate spot of needing a lawyer.

5 Star Attorney
Mr. Horlick was very helpful with my DUI case. He presented multiple plans of action, kept me informed, and was very professional. The cost was very reasonable and he even offered a payment plan if i needed it. He was able to get my fines lowered to absolute minimums, prevented further jail time, and was able to get certain charges/fines dropped. His down to earth character and genuine regard for my well being helped relieve a lot of anxiety during this difficult time in my life. I highly recommend Mr. Robert Horlick to anyone in need of a DUI attorney.

Robert Horlick helped me.
Robert Horlick provided me with excellent guidance through a tough and tricky traffic court case. I was pulled over in November for rolling through a stop sign, no big deal. To my complete surprise, I was arrested on the spot for a Suspended License I had no idea I had. Unbeknownst to me, my license had been suspended in the state of GA for nearly a year. All because I never received notice of a Super Speeder fine I had to pay from a ticket I received over a year ago in Candler Co. Mr. Horlick helped me greatly in my case. He provided excellent information and advice. He also kept me calm through such an unnecessary and lengthy process

Great experience with Robert Horlick
I had an excellent experience with Mr. Horlick. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He stayed on top of my case and kept informed throughout the entire process. Answered any questions I had and took the time to make sure I was comfortable. He was able to get my charges dismissed with little consequence and I am very appreciative of the services he provided. I would definitely recommend him to others looking for a highly competent attorney.

Got all charges dismissed! Thanks Robert!

Smooth experience with no hassles
Mr. Horlick is a true professional who takes all the worry out of dealing with the court system. He worked around our schedule, and even was willing to meet with us at a place of our choosing. He kept us informed of his progress throughout the process, and was able to successfully resolve our issue. I have no doubt that his savvy and experience were essential to the successful conclusion of our case. His firm worked with us regarding payment terms, and we highly recommend his work!

Exellent! It was my saving grace that Robert Horlick was at my court case.
I had a case where I was fixing a friend's car and got pulled over, without knowing they didn't have insurance or valid registration on the car. The judge was as tough as any I could imagine. Honestly I think she was too tough on everyone else, and she made a point to tell each person she was giving them the maximum fine for their offense. However, having Mr Horlick there made things much better. He was able to get one of the charges dropped and a lesser fine on the second. Also, he kept me informed of my rights in the case, and no points went on my license.

Got The Job DONE!!!
Met Mr. Horlick on a referral. Had no idea what my case would be like. Mr. Horlick was very calm thorough in his explanation. He made sure that I understood what the case was about, the possibilities of outcomes and that he would handle it. He did not make any empty promises!!! When we got to the court for the hearing and the case was 'continued' (again) he made sure that we had time to speak with the judge. He handled things so well that we got the case dismissed with no chance for a continuance- Something that I would not have been able to do since I wouldn't have known how to approach the judge.
