I truly believe you are in good hands if Mr Doraid Elder takes on your case. In my experience with him, he was extremely knowledgeable and precise about the case proceedings dealing with my issue as he is well respected by all the judges. He is very reasonable when it comes to money and puts you at ease from start to finish and I very highly recommend him.

Doraid was very helpful and knowledgable. Was able to give me the right information at the right time. Helped me with my case and would recommend him to anyone! Very caring and genuinely wants the best. His assistants and co workers were also helpful and useful when he was busy.

Doraid Elder is the best Criminal Defense Attorney there is. I am currently finishing up my last semester of law school so I have been exposed to the top legal minds in this State. I say this with complete sincerity, there is no one better than Doraid. Walk into any courthouse with him and you'll find judges, lawyers, and clerks beaming from cheek to cheek and greeting him by name. This happens because he is very good with people. He is genuine and he'll tell you how it is. To be successful in this profession, you need to know how to deal with people. Doraid is extremely successful because not only does he have an exceptional ability to get the right person to hear him out, but he also has one of the top legal minds around and he is VERY persuasive.
When Doraid wants to be heard, he will be. He is demanding when he needs to be, and he's very respected throughout the State. I am constantly approached by friends that need a Criminal Defense Attorney, and without a second thought I refer them to Doraid. Doraid is the only person I would trust with my life on the line. I have before, and I will again. He has come through for me every single time. I have found myself in some pretty unfortunate situations, and each time I had so much to lose. But as soon as Doraid Elder would walk into that courtroom, I was overcome with confidence that he would bring me justice.
There is no one better than Doraid. I will say that over and over. I've personally seen him prevail in a very rigorous murder trial. The way he worked the court room was incredible. It is very rare to see someone as respected as he is by judges and prosecutors. I've seen him convince judges and prosecutors to agree to hear him out. I have seen him convince judges to make decisions that are considered "the first in their career." He does this by fighting for what's right, and being relentless when he knows an injustice is taking place. He gets what he wants because he's driven by what's right. The best part about him is that he'll get the job done.
He's absolutely brilliant. The best in the profession, and I am honored to have had him fight on my side. Highly recommended to anyone that needs to fight a criminal charge. Taking into account all the people he knows, his personality, and his exceptional knowledge of the law, it would not make sense to go anywhere else.
I am graduating law school this year, and I hope to be half as good as Doraid Elder. And trust me, I am not the only person that feels this way about him. There are MANY MANY more.

DORAID ELDER SAVED MY LIFE. I MADE A BIG MISTAKE AND IT WAS ON VIDEO. IN COURT HE WAS ABLE TO CONVINCE THE JURY THAT I AM NOT A CAREER CRIMINAL AND THEY FOUND ME NOT GUILTY. THE PROSECUTOR WAS SO MAD. DORAID KNOWS WHO TO TALK TO PEOPLE AND HE IS SINCERE AND VERY SMART. HIS IS THE BEST TRIAL ATTORNEY AND HE IS VERY AFFORDABLE. THE JUDGE HAS SO MUCH RESPECT FOR DORAID ELDER.

HE IS AN AMAZING TRIAL LAWYER! DORAID ELDER WAS ABLE TO DESTROY THE PROSECUTOR'S CASE BECAUSE HE WENT THE EXTRA MILE AND DISCOVERED PRIOR DISHONESTY BY THE POLICE OFFICER THAT ARRESTED ME. THE JURY WAS DISGUSTED WITH THE POLICE OFFICERS AND BECAUSE OF DORAID ELDER I WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY AND I WAS ABLE TO KEEP MY LIFE IN ORDER. HE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. THE JURY LOVED HIM EVEN THOUGH THE JUDGE WAS A JERK AND TRIED TO HELP OUT THE POLICE. DORAID WAS SMARTER THAN ALL OF THEM. I INTERVIEWED 3 DIFFERENT ATTORNEYS AND THE MAIN REASON WHY I HIRED ELDER WAS BECAUSE HE WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD SHOW ME HE GOES TO TRIAL ON HIS CASES EVERY SINGLE YEAR AND NOT LIKE OTHER LAWYERS WHO RUSH TO PLEA. IF YOU WANT THE BEST HIRE DORAID. HE EVEN GAVE ME A PAYMENT PLAN AND I WAS PAID IN FULL BEFORE THE TRIAL.

I was charged with very serious felonies. While in court I was amazed at the amount of respect many judges and prosecutors gave Mr. Elder. We had to go to trial in my case and Doraid Elder 'kicked ass'. The jury found me not guilty after a 3 long week trial. Doraid is the real deal! When your life is on the line he is the medicine you need. God bless him and his team. Honest, Smart, Tough, and Strategic.

I would recommend Mr. Elder to anyone.
He was a blessing in a bad situation. If not for him I would have been in a lot more trouble. He understood my situation and the reasons I ended up in the courts. I was arrested for DUI not once but twice following the death of my mother.
He worked very hard , was honest, knowledgeable, professional, sympathetic and treated me with dignity and as a friend.
He and his staff were always available when I had a question or concern even while I was in jail.
Every situation was handled very quickly and it was obvious that he was well respected by the judge and all the court staff as well as other attorneys.
Doraid Elder worked hard through the courts system to make sure I received only the minimum punishment allowed by the law.
Having him as an attorney relieved a lot of the stress from a very stressful and scary time.
I can't thank him enough, thank god I found him and would definitely refer and gladly recommend him to anyone who is in trouble.

I would not hesitate to give Mr. Elder the highest recommendation possible.
I was witness to how Mr. Elder worked hard to represent a very good friend of mine. I was present at every court date, meeting and appearance.
This friend was facing the potential of a very serious jail time. He worked through the system to make sure her sentence was the minimum required by the laws.
Mr. Elder was always patient in answering questions and had great empathy for his client, making sure to keep her calm but realistic about the outcomes. He made sure he was available in taking phone calls except when he was in court. When he was unavailable his office staff was equally attentive and knowledgeable about the case.
All in all his service was exceptional and very professional. I have the greatest respect for him and would recommend him to anyone with the highest regard.

My son was charged with muder I hired another lawyer who spoke a big game & mislead us in order to hire that lawyer. At our first hearing we were horrified by the evidence against my son and the lack of ability our first lawyer had with the witnesses. Another lawyer told us about Elder. We did our home work on him then met him. He was very knowledgeable & specialized in criminal defense . I hired Attorney Elder to represent my son. From the first day Elder stepped in court we knew we had the right lawyer. The prosecutor, Judge and everyone in the building knew who he was. At trial he tore part the eye witnesses. The guy is an expert at getting to the truth. He was breaking down grown men on the stand. He caught the police in there lies. I recommend him to everyone. My son is free because of Elder. We owe him our life.
