As a former prosecutor with over 16 years of experience in dealing with nothing other than criminal and traffic offenses, I believe that I have a unique perspective and familiarity with the criminal and traffic laws of our State, along with a deep understanding of the Courts and Court personnel in our area. Without the proper assistance and guidance, someone who is accused of violating the law can be exposed to what can at times be an unforgiving legal system.  It is my goal to represent folks who are accused of violating the law in such a manner that will place them in the best possible position to favorably resolve their current matter along with addressing any personal issues to assist them to avoid any future problems.  For further information regarding my background and practice, please visit my website ().

5 Star Lawyer
Hired Mr.Cowart about a month leading up to a case in Evans County. I requested a consultation and received one quickly. Our initial call was thorough and reassuring. He negotiated for a much reduced charge that I was very satisfied with. He seems to have a great rapport with Evans County Court. He is knowledgeable,professional, and fairly priced. His receptionist Makensie was also very responsive. Payment and “paperwork” could be handled online which was convenient for me.

Job well done
Hired Mr. Cowart in 2019, 10/10 experience. Quick, professional and very responsive. Even emailed him 3 years later so I could obtain certain documents, which he completely took care of me.

Outstanding work
Mr. Cowart was able to get me immunity in court following an arrest as a minor. His services were outstanding and he was patient and explained everything throughout the entire process.

Pristine Representation
From the start Mr. Cowart made it clear that I had acquired an attorney whose compassion, expertise, and diligence would provide me not only with a brilliant attorney but a person of integrity during one of the most challenging times in my life. He approached my case with a level of care and commitment that left me with a sense of peace as the imminent court proceedings neared. I was able to focus on other aspects of my life in need of attention knowing that my legal issues were being managed by the best possible hands. He kept me abreast of any changes in my case ensuring that I entered the courtroom with full knowledge of what could transpire. I was charged with a DUI and convicted of reckless driving. I cannot say enough about the caliber of legal representation that Mr. Cowart provides. I am confident that he treats each case as a priority.

Best possible outcome achieved!
I hired Joey Cowart because of his great reviews, endorsements, involvement in the Statesboro community, and experience in the field of law. I was not disappointed. He was clear, caring, and professional. I was always able to reach him with any questions I had concerning my case and the possible outcomes. Although he never promised me any outcome, he certainly got the best outcome I could’ve possibly asked for. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a great attorney. He made a bad, very stressful situation easy and straight forward, I am so thankful that I chose to hire him. He will not let you down!

Knowledgeable and Personalized DUI Representation
I retained Mr. Cowart following a recent DUI arrest. I had no prior experience with the court system. From our first meeting, Mr. Cowart proved to be knowledgeable about current law as it related to my situation. He presented several options, clearly outlining pros and cons to each option, allowing me to select a strategy that best fit my needs. Due to his guidance through the process, both prior to my court date and in court, my case resulted in a non-DUI disposition.

Life changer
I was arrested for DUI in February 2017. i was headed for what looked to be a lofty fine and license suspension. I contacted Mr Joey and he quickly responded to set up our initial meeting. Even before our meeting he began diligently working towards helping with my case. He called me in for a follow up and he simplified every possible outcome. On my court date I was presented with the opportunity to plead no contest and be charged with driving too fast for conditions. I took that "deal" and received my punishment of 40 hrs community service, 1-16 hour defensive driving/DUI class and probation until everything asked of me was completed. All in all, Mr Joey went to bat for me and changed the outcome of my DUI because of his vast knowledge of the law and his unbelievable commitment to helping his clients. I'm beyond grateful for what he did for me.
