I have worked with Mr. Andrews and his staff for almost 3 years. I went through a nasty divorce and obtained more than a few charges - multiple DUI's and more. I was a complete disaster! I had 13 charges total. Part of them were on the county level and the other part were at the state level. When all was said and done I only took 1 charge out of all of it! Mr. Andrews and his staff walked me through every step of the way. They were amazingly emotionally supportive and by following Mr. Andrews lead I am now free to Live my new life with only a blemish on my permanent record and best of all- MY FREEDOM. These events were life changing and had the outcome been different I would have lost my career and any hopes of a successful future. To say that Doug Andrews saved my life is an understatement! There are not enough words for me to express my gratitude nor explain the magnitude of what Andrews and Sanders Law Firm has done for me. Doug Andrews is the ONLY choice if you want the best representation that exists. Thank you so much Doug, Kathy and Amber; I am forever grateful.

Brooke, you helped get the results we achieved. Some clients, who have no experience with the court system or what a lawyer’s job actually requires, expect the lawyer single handedly to just make it all go away. If you watch gangster movies from the 1940’s, you might get that impression because it shows the cop, the prosecutor or even the old judge taking a bribe.
Not sure that was ever very common, but it was very Hollywood box office.
Thankfully, in today’s world, with cops having car video and body worn cameras and mics, and email exchange, the system is almost corruption free. We will see if the good old boy system was still working to explain the events in SC with the Murdagh’s… expect a mini-series or even a Hollywood feature film to come…and six books once the truth is wrenched from the lips of the accomplices.
The practice of law has changed with the times, I handled my first Courtroom cases in 1968 at Hunter Army Airfield, as prosecutor trying Army Special Courts-Martial…5 years before I got into Emory Univ Law School.
The client cooperation, participation in preparation, and active/happy compliance with tasks that help the process, whether the outcome is as hoped and fought for - or otherwise- makes the team effort worthwhile.
Why? Because the defense must come from behind. The prosecutor always has a headstart by the police securing the evidence that THEY want.
Most of the successful defense cases are directly related to the client joining the lawyer team to win as much justice as the evidence will allow and the lawyer’s skill and determination can produce.
I am happy to say ALL of my clients are team players, or they don’t get to join our team. Clients must care about the outcome as much as the lawyer. This lawyer cares and does not like any result not planned and fought for.
Thank you, Brooke. You deserved all the good results you needed and WE achieved together.
