Excellent attorney
I could not have ask for a better attorney than andrew parks, his extensive knowledge on dui case which makes a huge difference. He has worked diligently on my case and I ended up with no dui record. Leo, his assistant has been the best in assisting me with my case. They got me back on the road in a day after my license was suspended. Parks and braxton is the best and I highly recommend . Andrew parks is the "bull dog of DUI"

DUI Case
I was referred by a family friend to Mr. Parks for my charges of DUI, open container and running a red light. I did my homework on different lawyers in town and felt best with Mr. Parks in my corner. After reviewing the case he advised me on what my options were and all the possible outcomes for the decision I make; whether to go to trial or try taking a plea. In my case I felt taking a plea if possible was the way to go. When it was all said and done I was able to take a plea for reckless driving. No DUI, open container, or running a red light convictions. I was also able to keep my license following the reckless driving conviction. I would highly recommend Mr. Parks to anyone who is in a position I was in. He will keep you informed on the legal process and will pursue the case with your best interest in mind.

Andrew Parks, Fantastic Representation. A+++
I am a healthcare professional who was accused of DUI. I had a lot on the line of course, and Andrew Parks came through and saved my reputation and career. He was professional and explanatory every step of the way. The office manager Leo is also very friendly and always able to help with questions/concerns. Mr. Parks worked diligently, and reached a VERY positive outcome for my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Parks if you are in need of legal services. A+++ representation!

Parks for the Win
I was facing a DUI along with 3 traffic tickets and I hired Andrew Parks to represent me. He was not cheap, but he allowed me to make payments to him which was important to me at the time. He handled my case well and was able to get evidence thrown out which resulted in a Noll Pros - which means my case was dropped. I was very happy with Mr. Parks and I would use him again, but hopefully I will never need too.

Saved My Career
I thought that my career, and my life, were over. I knew my only hope was to hire the best DUI Defense law firm. After a ton of Internet research I found Parks and Braxton and gave them a call. I spoke with Andrew Parks and told him about what took place the night of my arrest. Immediately I felt great speaking to Andrew he explained everything to me over the phone and I decided he and his partner were the Attorneys for my case. NO DUI Conviction! Which was the best possible outcome. I strongly recommend him without hesitation. I didn't have to attend any court appearances and was kept up to date on everything that was going on with my case. If you need a DUI defense attorney that's aggressive and has the experience needed to defend you in this tough process look no further than Parks And Braxton! If you want to read any of the past cases that Parks and Braxton have defended they have it on their website. Case # And Judge who presided over the case. These guys are the best of the best Period.

DUI DISMISSED!!! LOOK no further for a DUI Attorney!
If your looking for a Dui Attorney seriously LOOK NO Further! Mr. Parks and his firm was amazing from the get go! I was charged first time DUI offender and blew a .17 and going into this thought I would never have a shot. I called around but saw the amazing reviews this firm had and also recommended from another person as well. He picked up my call on Sunday night (Stressed out, scarred) came in the next day and knew I wanted to hire them right away! Literally thought I had no chance of this case because of the high breath I blew but they got it Dismissed! Seriously LOOK NO FURTHER if you have been charged with a DUI these guys are the absolute BEST just check the website for cases dropped or dismissed and that right there was enough for me to feel confident in the right attorney to represent me. Thanks Mr. Parks again!

These guys are the awesome!
I was speeding and was pulled over. The police officer smelled alcohol, gave many sobriety tests, and arrested me for DUI. I blew a .137 and a .142 on the breath alcohol test. This was my first offense so the lawyers tried there best to plea bargain the DUI charge to a Reckless Driving (which I gladly would have taken) but the prosecutors would not have it. When we finally went to court, Mr. Parks and Mr. Braxton were fully prepared and they battled hard for me. The witnesses called by the prosecutors did not fare too well on their cross examinations (an understatement). The jury took minimum time returning a "NOT GUILTY" verdict. It was amazing!

Amazing Attorney!
I feel so grateful and honored to have chosen Andrew Parks as my attorney. From beginning to end, Mr. Parks was consistent in helping me and overseeing my case. He is extremely knowledgeable and competent, and was able to get my charges reduced from being a DUI to reckless driving. He always kept me well informed through all of his procedures and in the end I was very pleased with his results. I will always highly recommend him and his firm to all of my family and friends.

Best experience with a lawyer I've ever had!
I was referred to Parks and Braxton by a respected friend. Charges of leaving the scene of an accident with property damage and resisting arrest were eventually dismissed all together!

Happy with My DUI Attorney
I was arrested for a DUI and realized how my life could have been ruined. I looked for a DUI Attorney on the internet and found Parks & Braxton. I interviewed them to see if they were a fit for me. I am so happy that I chose them. Their customer service was impeccable! Total communication the entire process. They had a plan in action from the beginning. In court, Mike argued to the prosecutor that I was stopped wrongly. He had been fully prepared with all the law. The State dropped my DUI to a reckless and I was pumped. You guys are the best. NO DUI on my record baby. Do not call anyone else if you need a DUI Attorney. Only call the best, Parks & Braxton !!!!!
