  • William Alton Young Jr.

    Mr. Bates and I worked together to resolve a complex multistate license suspension for a client. Thanks to Mr. Bates' knowledge and skill, the client was able to immediately secure a restricted license in Tennessee and subsequently have the restriction removed, as Mr. Bates was able to successfully divert the client's Louisiana DUI conviction. Highly recommended DUI lawyer.
