I was very impressed with Ms. McCarthy's representation during our Civil Case. She answered all our questions and was very patient with my husband and I. She provided us with pertinent information that helped us understnad our rights and our case.
She was always available and made us feel our case was important to her. She treated us as though we were her own family.
I highly recommend her services, JUSTICE will be served!

Ok folks, listen up. Nobody -- and I mean nobody -- plans for a DUI. In my case, I didn't plan on a couple of them. While your friends, family or coworkers may be quick to judge, Ms. McCarthy is one person you absolutely need on your side. While every case can't be solved the way you initially expect, I can attest firsthand that Ms. McCarthy will go to any length to pursue every possible legal avenue to ensure the service of justice. She knows the law so extensively that the smallest detail (which many other attorneys may overlook) might absolutely make all the difference in a verdict.
Even if, for whatever reason, your case gets dragged out for an extended period of time, she will be fully available and responsive until the case is completely over. A DUI may feel like end of the world, but Ms. McCarthy works tirelessly to make sure it isn't.

I found Allison McCarthy on this site and after talking to her I knew she was it. I had gotten a DUI in Ga, but live in SC. She went to work immediately for me. Protecting my DL and pressing the prosecutors for evidence to review. She always returned my calls and texts and kept me well informed of everything I needed to know. She explained her strategy and how things worked. I am also a student and she was able to coordinate to get a court date that didn't interfere with my exams, and handled everything so I could avoid any unnessecary drive to GA.
Ultimately she worked out a plea to reckless driving which I graciously accepted.
Upon finally meeting her at trial, she had a great demeanor. Also I noticed her repor with the prosecutors, fellow defense attornys, and judge was one of respect and admiration. She carefully explained what was going to happen and held my hand through the hearing. Even after all was said and done she has helped me coordinate the mandated requirements and still responds quickly to answer any questions I have. She's there before, during, and after trial. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking representation. She is a consummate professional in every regard. While my bad decisions brought me too her, I could not have made a better decision than choosing her. A+, 5 stars, two thumbs up. Thank you so much for all your hard work and help.
