Amazing job!
They did everything I had hoped for plus went the extra mile. They stayed in constant contact and took all the legal stress away from us. I’m definitely keeping them in my contacts! Thank you both so much!!

Best criminal attorney in Macon Ga
Mr. Bushway is very professional and experienced. He got three NOT GUILTY verdicts for my son on three serious felony charges. If you need an attorney, this is the WAY to go.... BushWAY & WAYstack

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've known Gregory Bushway for greater than 7 years. He is a consummate professional. Gregory takes great pride, not only in achieving his clients' goals, but helping to improve their respective place in life through his sound counsel. He is bold in his zealous representation. I have opposed him repeatedly over the past few years. He is very knowledgeable, and any person who uses his services will find themselves in great hands. Powerful litigation skills coupled with courtroom prowess equals second to none legal help. These skills are a dying art, and he has truly captured it. I wholeheartedly endorse him. You will not regret your decision to seek his counsel."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 06
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"As a former prosecutor, Gregory is a true expert in all areas of criminal law. Anyone in need of a criminal attorney would be lucky to have Gregory fighting for them and advising them. Also, he listens to his clients and gets to know them so he will be able to provide the best defense in every case. I strongly endorse this lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 30
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Gregory since about 2001 when he was still a prosecutor for Jones County. He has always been fair and ethical and a pleasure to work with. In more recent years we have conferred with each other on defense matters and he continues to display the utmost professionalism and to fight for his clients. He is one of the best defense attorneys in Macon."
