FALSE DUI CHARGES : REDUCED CHARGE
False DUI Charges: Result: Dropped to a " Too fast for conditions". I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the case considering all of the surrounding factors. DUI charges can remain on your record for LIFE and I am glad I went with attorney Wiltshire. Mo was pleasantly helpful to work with and completely understood all of the aspects of my situation without judgement. I was not only surprisingly pleased with the outcome but Mo Wiltshire was also good at heart and only charged me for HALF of our initial agreement!!!!! I would recommend Mo Wiltshire to ANY AND ALL individuals who have similar problems or concerns as he handles files with diligence and authority. Definitely Top notch and the best Attorney on the Northside of Georgia!! Thanks again for all that you accomplished for me Mo!!!!

Best Defense Attorney
Mo Wiltshire is the best, as an attorney and as an individual. I am a retired civil attorney and hired Mo in 2019 to represent my daughter after a traffic accident, when the police report indicated that she was suspected of driving under the influence. No field sobriety test was performed at the accident scene and no blood tests were ever done at the hospital. However, over the next two years the charges against my daughter escalated from traffic misdemeanors to a DUI and felony charges related to serious injury by vehicle. We would never have gotten through the four years until the resolution of my daughter’s case, in July 2023, without Mo’s communication and knowledge, based on his experience, that patience and perseverance would lead to his being able to obtain the best possible outcome for my daughter. Having that patience was challenging at times, but Mo was there to reassure us when necessary, and I always felt better about my daughter’s situation after one of our many phone conferences. After four years, once my daughter’s case was finally assigned to a prosecutor (after 6 others) who was ready to look at the facts of her case, Mo was able to get the prosecutor to consider the totality of the evidence, and negotiated a deal for my daughter that dismissed the DUI and all other felony charges. Instead, she was convicted of three traffic-related misdemeanors, requiring probation and community service. During the four years that this case was pending, my daughter completed graduate school with a degree in the medical profession and had to go through a professional licensing process. The backlog of cases in the Athens Clarke County District Attorney’s office and lack of a resolution in my daughter’s case were seriously jeopardizing her ability to get licensed. Knowing this, Mo wrote a personal letter to the medical licensing board, advocating for my daughter. In addition, given how well-known and respected he is within the court system, Mo even was able to get the clerk of court to communicate with the medical licensing board and confirm the unresolved status of my daughter’s case. This extra effort by Mo led to my daughter finally obtaining the license that she needed. I worked with many attorneys in the years that I practiced law and, without question, Mo’s level of professionalism and commitment to his clients is outstanding. We are so grateful to him for the outcome he obtained for our daughter and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering his legal services.

Child molestation charges
I was charged with several counts of felony child molestation by the State of Georgia. These disgusting charges were predicated on coerced statements from the children of my coworker and, thanks to Mr. Morris Wiltshire, proven to be baseless. I picked Mr. Wiltshire because he, aside from my family and friends, was the only person who believed in me in my darkest hour. Also, Mr. Wiltshire was highly recommended by an attorney with the Piedmont Judicial Circuit Public Defender’s Office. Mr. Wiltshire has been on both ends of the judicial spectrum formally as a prosecutor and now as a criminal defense attorney—he knows all the tricks that police detectives and the prosecution will throw at you and how to counter them. Mr. Wiltshire has the tools and the talent. When you are criminally charged you are going to war and Mr. Wiltshire is an unrelenting fighter—a fighter you’ll need in your corner on the battlefield that is the courtroom whether your issue is at the State or Federal level. What Mr. Wiltshire and his team did for me and my family was nothing short of a miracle. I was facing the rest of my life in prison if convicted. Mr. Wiltshire assessed my situation and developed a battle plan. Mr. Wiltshire has a network of experts and, with his guidance, we hired a reputable expert in the field of forensic psychology to review the evidence and write a report that further proved that I was innocent. The result for me being represented by Mr. Wiltshire and his extraordinary team was that we never took a trial posture and my criminal charges were ultimately dismissed. The financial hardship and psychological trauma these criminal charges have caused me and my family will, over time, fade hopefully, but the initial result Mr. Wilshire and his team affected had a tremendous impact on my life. It’s difficult to describe the emotions because I have always lived a lawful life. I can say with certainty that Mr. Wilshire never never gave up on me—he stuck with me through thick and thin and, ultimately, my innocence was vindicated thanks to Mr. Wiltshire and his team. Everyone’s legal situation is different. Remember: NEVER TALK TO THE POLICE! Assert your Fifth Amendment privilege (if you’re a U.S. citizen), go to jail, bond out and call Mr. Wiltshire immediately.

Excellent Attorney
Mo is an excellent attorney. If you find yourself needing legal representation in the Ocmulgee district for a criminal matter, this is the man to hire. Mo, will fight, negotiate, and defend your 2nd amendment rights. He understands over zealous policing and can defend you when it happens. He also has a good working relationship with the court systems and district attorney. They know who he is and know he is there to defend his clients. He is not taken lightly.

No worries if you get Mr. Wiltshire
My son is a student at UGA and he found himself in a bit of trouble as many others do when they first set out to college. I contacted Mr. Wiltshire through the personal recommendation of another parent and written reviews. He explained the process by which we would go about getting this taken care of and what the expected results would be. He kept us informed throughout the case. I felt confident with his experience that we would have a positive outcome...and we did ! I certainly hope we won't be needing him again, but if we do, that's who we will call.

A True Professional.
In college, I was arrested for failure to maintain lane and subsequent DUI charge. From our first meeting, Mo patiently listened to my case and assured that we could prove my innocence and allow me to pursue my professional career. Mo is honest when discussing case details and what he can provide. He and his staff were very attentive to keeping me informed on the status of my case. We were able to work together to accomplish the best outcome of dismissing the DUI charge. Working with Mo, I was able to finish professional school as a doctor without delay or further repercussions.

Highly Recommended. Great experience
My daughter was detained on alcohol related charges In Athens. After receiving several recommendations, and a consultation with Mo I hired him to represent my daughter. During the consultation, Mo was sympathetic and non-judgmental, yet straightforward about what to expect. He explained best and worst possible outcomes so my daughter and I both understood what was ahead. Fast forward a few months and I am very happy to report the case was concluded with the best outcome possible. I highly recommend Mo, not just because of our outcome but because he clearly has the experience, the contacts, and the temperament necessary to assist those young adults that still occasionally make a bad decision.

Highly recommended! Awesome attorney!
I had a run in with an Athens law enforcement first time ever being arrested. Once I did research on what I was being charged with I knew I needed an attorney. I did my research and Mo kept popping up. I never expected to be in the position I was in and I had to hire the best attorney and Mo matched the description in what I was looking for this man is awesome. When I met with him I knew I made the right choice he was not one of those scripted attorney's that tell you what you want to hear. He kept it honest through out everything remind you he used to be a prosecutor he knows EVERYTHING when it comes to the law business. He did not give up on me even when I felt like giving up on myself. This man was fighting for me! When my back was against the wall and I had no one to turn to this man was right there telling me he is going to do everything he can to save my career! He kept his word case DISMISSED. This man went above and beyond for me he kept me updated about everything in my case and his assistant Teresa was amazing I thank her so much she kept me calm each time she gave me an update on the case. If you want to hire an attorney HIRE MO HE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST!

College Shenanigans
I’ve had two “run-ins” with the Athens law enforcement during my college career. (2016 Grad) and Mo was there for both me and my family each time with great advice and intervention in the local courts when necessary. He’s a down to earth and very reasonable guy who will go out of his way to help you. He’s more of a friend at times and expert counselor when you need him to be. He’s also connected in the area and understands the process and how overzealous the prosecutors in the area can be. Very grateful to Mo that I’ve been able to avoid situations that could have been a lot worse. He’s top dawg at defending rowdy dawgs!

Couldn't Have asked for more!
Mo was incredible. From the consultation to the resolution of my case, he was professional, realistic and thorough. He gave me realistic expectations of how the case would turn out from the beginning. He communicated what was going on with my case frequently and worked with me when I couldn't make a court date etc. The case ended in dismissal, which I was more than I could've asked for. I would HIGHLY recommend Mo and his staff! Best decision I could've made.

Great Attorney-Greater Man
As any parent that has had one of their own make poor decisions can attest, the consequences of those decisions creates undue stress and strain on the family. We contacted Mr. Wiltshire after an unfortunate incident and arranged to meet. Typically you can get a feel for a person's attitude and personality within the first five minutes of the introduction and "Mo" won us over immediately with his candor, professionalism, and general demeanor. Not only did he express his undeniable knowledge of the law he had impeccable values as a man and those that we shared in our family. While we were far from resolving our situation he made us feel very confident before we departed and we began our journey toward resolution. Over time, and much coordination, Mr. Wiltshire ultimately negotiated a positive final result that was far beyond what we originally imagined. Our youngest was salvaged from what could have been a disastrous outcome and is now more mature and aware of the ramifications of bad choices. This was due to Mr. Wiltshire's willingness to explain issues in a calm, collected, and often times humorous manner. We are forever indebted to Mo for presenting a defense that was thorough, affordable, and personable. We could not offer a higher recommendation to those in need of competent representation. Thank you Sir!
