  • Patrick Applegate Kunes

    Rusty is the man to know around Cordele, Ga. He is familiar with the local judges and prosecutors and uses this information to make winning tactical decisions. When a good friend who works for Cordele government got a DUI, I suggested Rusty. He replied that he had already been told by a friend, "He's the best there is." You cant find a more dedicated or better connected defense attorney in Cordele.

  • G. G. Joseph Kunes Jr.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Rusty for almost 30 years. I even had cases against him years ago when we both did civil work. Rusty now limits his practice to criminal matters, with a concentration on dui defense. You could not find a better lawyer or better person than Rusty.
