Review Morris Wiltshire

    I'm writing this as a testimony for Morris Wiltshire who I retained last year to represent me for a DUI charge last year.

    During a very chaotic period of my life, I decided on Mr. Wiltshire first, after reading his positive reviews; but than I was sold after reading his resume where he has served as both a successful former prosecutor and now, as a defense attorney.

    His office initially gathered all information regarding my case. After, Mo initiated a very concise interview with me. He assessed my case and assured me that he would handle all of the proceedings.

    During the next 9 months, there were several motions, hearings, and discussions with my case direction.

    Mo really came through for me from start to finish. His level of communication was superior. We talked often always giving me assurance that every detail was being handled.

    Towards the end of these proceedings, Mo went after the best deal possible with the prosecutor. I highly recommend Morris Wiltshire for his knowledge of the law, honesty and upfront direction. He is tenacious towards every detail, and very aggressive in defending a client towards the best possible solution.

    I was arrested for a DUI Less Safe (blew under legal limit) earlier this year and seeing as though I have never been in any type of trouble legally, it was an incredibly disheartening and panic-filled situation. I knew that in order to fight for my name to be cleared I needed a lawyer who was not only competent, but someone I could trust to advocate fully on my behalf. After researching and interviewing several lawyers, I chose Mr. Wiltshire as the most able lawyer to defend my case. After feeling betrayed, let down, and frustrated with our legal system, Mr. Wiltshire was able to not only calm my fears, but he defended my case with the utmost finesse, getting the Solicitor’s office to dismiss the DUI charge altogether. From all the research I conducted prior to even hiring Mr. Wiltshire, I was well aware that the odds of a dismissal were incredibly slim considering the stringent and punitive approach taken in Athens-Clarke County. I truly believe that he is the only attorney who could have reached the outcome I received. Mr. Wiltshire is not only very skilled as a lawyer, but he is a kind and humble man who truly cares for his clients. Without any reservation I highly recommend Mr. Wiltshire to any individual experiencing a similar situation.

    Even though I didn't get a chance to use him because my son has gotten into court early the next morning, he still called and followed up on my email in a quickly and timely matter. So that's an A+ review for me just that alone. Thanks for responding to me so quickly!!!

  • My worries dissolved

    I have learned that good citizens can at some point in their lives find themselves "on the other side of the law." I had never experienced the effects of worry where I literally couldn't eat or sleep, but that is how I felt when my son came into some trouble. When my husband and I visited Mr. Wiltshire, he looked into my dark-circled eyes and said, "Mom. Stop worrying. You are hiring me to do that for you." He then gave us the advice we so desperately needed within a 45 minute time frame. He is firm, authoritative, and truthful to his clients. I left his office, and the weight of the world was lifted off of my shoulders. I ate my first meal that night without feeling sick. Things only got better, and now we are trouble free. I would advise anyone to go to Mr. Wiltshire who finds themselves in legal trouble. You'll be glad that you did.

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mr. Wiltshire and his professional staff. They are not only on top of your case and looking out for your best interest but also care about you and your family as you go through a difficulty process. Mr. Wiltshire made us feel very confident that our case was being handled on a timely basis with constant communication as to what direction the case was going and what our options would be. Mr. Wiltshire's staff answered phone calls and emails in a timely manner. Mr. Wiltshire's is very respected in his field, which was demonstrated by his good communication with prosecutors and judges in our community. I would highly recommend using Mr. Wiltshire for any legal services you may need since he is the best!!!!!!!!

    I would highly recommend Mr. Morris Wiltshire to anyone who wants a extremely professional, experienced and knowledgeable attorney in any type of court case. As parents we all fear the time when one of our own children might be accused of a crime. More devastating however, is when you know your child is innocent and you feel helpless. Mr. Wiltshire not only took our case, but quickly understood the situation and knew exactly how to proceed. My child's case was dismissed and now my child is ready to graduate from college and start a career without a record. We will always be grateful to his kindness and his expertise and would recommend him to anyone in need of legal help.

    I was arrested in Athens Clarke County on a DUI charge and immediately began combing the internet for representation. It did not take long to stumble upon Mr. Wiltshire's name and after reading the stellar reviews, I decided to give him a call. It only took 2 minutes on the phone with him to know he was the right guy for the job. I spoke with numerous lawyers, but Mo stood out from the crowd. I was very appreciative of the fact that he was straightforward with me through the whole process and always kept me informed. He never got my expectations too high, but kept me comfortable through it all. The process took some time, but ultimately he was able to use his relationships (he knows everybody....really, everybody) and experience to get me a favorable pre-trial disposition in the form of a lesser charge. I believe this was a fair resolution and would choose Mo again if I could do it over. Thank you Mo for caring about your clients and for keeping a DUI off my record!

    My decision to drink and drive was a very poor decision and also was hiring Mr. Wiltshire. On the phone he assured me that he had a lot of pull in the city I was arrested in. I told him that I admitted to the officer that I had been drinking. I also told him that I did a road side breathalyzer and a field sobriety test and failed both. Wiltshire assured me that I would be alright. He claimed that I did the smart thing by being co-operative with the police officer. Needless to say, court rolls around and he went against his word and said that there was nothing that he could do for me. Be careful what you believe from him and don't ever get your hopes up on him because he was a waist of time and money. I would have gotten the same result going by myself and pleeding guilty.

    Morris Hugh Wiltshire Jr.’s response: “I am very disappointed and surprised that this client is unsatisfied but sadly sometimes expectations do not match reality. In DUI cases where the BAC test result is over twice the legal limit and the police report quotes the driver as stating he "was drunk". In cases where the arresting officer's car video shows the driver's obvious state of impairment and records the admissions the driver makes about having too much to drink .... reality has to set in. Sometimes the best decision in a case is to enter a negotiated guilty plea. We should be well pleased with the excellent job done in this case including the fact that we were able to delay the guilty plea for several months to allow the client to get an in state license. This opportunity to obtain an in state license was the direct result of my advice and my efforts to get the case reset. It was this effort which allowed him to be eligible for a limited driving permit. Without this advice and the ability to buy some time for him in the court he would have been unable to drive at all in Georgia for at least one full year. Importantly, the final negotiated plea resulted in a significant reduction in sentence even below the normal state law required DUI minimums. It is clear that there was an inadequate understanding of the reality of this case. If any complaint or question had been raised before court all of these issues could have been addressed and explained in extra detail, for as long as necessary, until they were well understood prior to the resolution of the case. Clients should always call or email me if they want to talk about their situation especially if they are one of the very rare folks who are unhappy. Usually, a little better communication can solve these type issues and I am committed to engaging in that successful communication.”
  • Thank you Mr.Wiltshire

    I was unfairly arrested by an Athens Police officer in downtown during one of the game nights. I was charged with Littering (a cigarette butt) and Obstruction of LEO. I called several lawyers until a couple of my friends referred me to Mr.Wiltshire. Upon reviewing the police report, Mr.Wiltshire assured me with confidence that no other lawyers have. I knew from that moment that I had picked the right person to represent me. Three months after my arrest, Mr.Wiltshire was able to dismiss my case and restrict my files before I even had to go through thejury trial. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done for me. He is a very understanding guy who cares very much about his clients. I would strongly recommend him to my friends if they are ever put into the same situation. His knowledge and expertise in this area is phenomenal. Call him now if you need help, and I guarantee you will get the best result.

  • Mo Wiltshire is an Outstanding lawyer!

    Mo is tremendously knowledgeable about all areas of the law. He knows how the legal system works and researched every detail of my case. He gave me the honest truth about how I stood in the eyes of the law and put in the time to establish the best defense for me. My case was very serious and Mo argued my case with the DA and got a greatly reduced sentence!
    He is very personable and a good family man.
    In the event that I need a lawyer in the future I will definately call on Mo and I will recommend him to anyone who needs excellent legal representation!
