DUI Case
Willis Lucas Law Group did me a great service helping me out in my case. Several motions were worked on during weekends and holidays for several of my urgent needs. I highly recommend utilizing their expertise.

My highest praises upon David's capabilities...
Mr. Willis was the 2nd attorney we retained to handle a then 2 year old, unresolved civil matter he & his crew subsequently inherited during Covid-World. While working through this period of time within a legal system that was running at half-speed, they introduced smart actions & maintained vigilant contact with parties involved to reach a favorable judgement for us.

VP of Account Management
David Willis was a customer of mine long before I became a client of his. And through those years I have sent referrals, not knowing I would end up needing his services myself. David does not just "take a case"--he invests himself into every aspect of the job. He kept me very informed, and made me feel incredibly comfortable in quite an uncomfortable circumstance. I was always made aware of any change in my case, and David was present & available for any care, concern, or clarification I needed. I had no doubt that my case was being handled by the absolute best person for the job. Furthermore, big shoutout to Rose, who handled more of my calls than any normal person should have to, but she answered every question I had with kindness and compassion. If she told me she would do something, I didn't have to wonder IF she would, and how long it would take. It just got done in a timely & courteous manner. Overall-though I hope I wouldn't have the need-I would go to David Willis & his team for any future legal needs. (And in case you were wondering? Charges dropped.)

DUI Defense
I was arrested for a DUI in December of 2016, and referred to Mr. Willis's firm from a credible source stating they were the best. I met with Mr. Willis and between his presence, his knowledge, and his confidence, I knew I needed to hire his firm to represent me in my case. We went to a jury trial and won with a Not Guilty verdict in May 2017. It is all due to Mr. Willis and his team's extensive knowledge for DUI law and their ability to put up a fight for what is right.

David's an Excellent Lawyer
David is an excellent trial and construction lawyer. His vast experience in construction, including actually working as a licensed contractor for many years, is invaluable to anyone looking for a construction lawyer.

If you need an attorney , you are a fool not to speak to Mr David Willis. I was referred to Mr Willis by another attorney. Best referral in my life. After your initial meeting, you know in youre in great n hands. This man reeks in class . He could be your best friend but at the same time all business. Ive made hundreds of mistakes in my life but Mr Willis was not one of them. I had a serious traffic incident and Mr Willis without going into details took care of me to perfection. This man is total class and a true southern gentleman, I may see him for my primary care doctor. I would give him 10 stars if I could Brent Fj

Knows his stuff!
This man handled my son's DUI case ~ and while my boy was unwilling to take his case to trial, Mr Willis displayed a sense of professionalism that went way above the norm. Thank you for your service, kind sir...

David fought for me!
There was a lady in our apartment complex who was being beat by her husband outside. My wife called for me and I responded by going outside and physically restraining him until the police arrived. I was subsequently arrested for hitting the husband with a baseball bat several times. Since I used a bat I was charged with felony (F3) Aggravated Battery with a deadly weapon. I was given an outrageous bond, due to a previous record when I was younger, with very little hope at all of getting out of the charges. David Willis and his group of professionals were able to convince the State Attorney's Office to drop all charges without prejudice. It is over and I don't have to worry about probation or anger management courses. He called this morning and said I no longer had a court date my charges were dismissed! If you need a lawyer you can trust, that can be aggressive when need be, if you have any legal problem the folks at David Willis are the ones to call!

Experienced Businessman and Great Attorney
David Willis is a breath of fresh air in the legal profession. His years of experience as a general contractor and business man, together with a down-to-earth personality, render his approach to legal issues much more real-world and practical, and not bookish nor ivory tower. I would highly recommend Mr. Willis for contract disputes, especially if they involve real estate, or construction in particular. You will benefit from his candid, experience based advice and counsel.

Smart and Honest Lawyer (unheard of, but here he is)
I was arrested for driving on a suspended license. It looked like I was in deep trouble and the State Attorney was demanding jail time. David worked with me and found a problem with the traffic stop that required the case to be dropped. I was super lucky to have David working on the case, and he did a great job. I won’t be driving until I get my license back. David was always available to talk to me and answer questions. He even picked me up and drove me to my hearings because I couldn’t drive. Show me another attorney that does that. A super good guy; honest and straight shooter.
