Incredible service with fantastic results
Outstanding is the only word I can find to describe the legal services of this firm in handling my 5 DUI cases accumulated over 4 months. Upon receiving my first DUI, I was inundated with information and advertisements from attorneys. After researching the firms, I narrowed it down to 3. My first impression of The Blalock Law Firm firm after speaking with Mr. Blalock's Assistant was one of a knowledgeable and efficient firm. She explained to me the Court and DMV process. After that, she always knew me, usually by voice, and could update me on the progress of my case. After speaking with Mr. Blalock over the phone, I immediately made my decision. I felt that he would do everything possible to help me, and he did. He even went to far as to meet me at my apartment to make a plan and discuss his 17 years of experience. The result of the misdemeanors was incredible, and the felony case resulted in penalties much lower than I could have dreamed. It is difficult for me to imagine any other attorney sticking with me, even to the extent of flying to Southern California to defend my felony case there. Mr. Blalock, your sensitive personality, excellent representation and more than fair fees are commendable. I can't imagine how to possibly thank you sufficiently.

Best Decision I Made
From the moment I obtained Anthony's legal services, I knew it was the right decision. Anthony does a very well job of explaining the ins and outs of the legal process and providing options. He conveys his intentions clearly and is very empathetic. Anthony kept me up to date every step of the way, and due to his persistence and refusing to leave questions unanswered, he was able to shine light on several shortcomings on the DA's part; ultimately leading to the dismissal of my case. Anthony is well versed, articulate and very prepared while defending his clients. He ensures he is doing all that he can to represent his clients in the best possible way. Bottom line, Anthony knows what he is doing and it was a privilege to have been represented by him.

License back and No DUI
Mr. Blalock is the man you need if you have gotten arrested for a DUI, he fulfilled every court case for me, got my license back without a restriction, and lower my case down to a dry reckless! He saved my career and heavy fines that I may have had if fully convicted of a DUI.

Highly recommend
I consulted Mr. Blalock regarding a DUI. I was ashamed and I thought I would loose my job. I was truly scared. He answered my call right away, he was professional and nonjudmental. He provided me with all the information I needed to make an informed decision about how to proceed with my case. He represented me and went out of his way to get the best possible outcome which allowed me to move on with my life.

DUI? Hire the best - Blalock
You’ve heard it before - don’t drink and drive. It’s the wrong thing to do - so take a ride share and have a good time. BUT - if you find yourself suddenly facing a DUI charge - and you are needing a lawyer to represent you - who absolutely knows what he’s doing - don’t hesitate, pick up the phone right away and call Mr Blalock. He is a pro. As a busy business owner I count on experts when I need them. My time is valuable and Mr Blalock explained to me from the beginning that he would handle everything from start to finish for a single flat fee. And he did exactly that. Every court appearance, every DMV hearing, and all correspondence on my behalf was handled professionally. I was updated on a consistent basis and accessing the client portal was easy and available at all times to get a status on progress for my case. In the end charges were reduced to my satisfaction, fines were lower than expected, DMV related penalties were dismissed, and there was no license suspension. Yes - I have to pay the price for being .08 - a wet reckless - but Mr Blalock did a wonderful job for me and I highly recommend him if you are in need. In the meantime - learn how to use Uber and Lyft and keep the roads safe. I do. You won’t regret it..... CC

The Best!
I had a wet wreckless from 8 years ago and knew I was in trouble when I got a DUI. The very first thing I did was to get an attorney. I chose Mr. Blalock because he has over two decades of experience and specializes in DUI cases. I am so grateful to have found him and to have him on my side. He got me a great deal considering what it could've been, and I'm happy with the outcome! He's THE guy if you get a DUI!

Mr. Blalock is a blessing!!! Saved my life.
My case was complex and took over a year for final judgement. Even with a clean record, the "Justice" system wanted to nail me with a felony and serious time behind bars which was evaded. Mr. Blalock has a huge heart, is extremely confident, professional and straight as an arrow. He will absolutely fight for you and can be trusted completely.

The very Best!!
First of all I want to say 100% without a doubt Anthony Blalock is by far the number one best DUI and criminal defense attorney I have ever had in my life in the past 30 years. I've had some issues with DUi's and every single DUI I've never done a full day in jail. Recently a few months ago I had a felony case involving a stolen license plate that was a felony that he had completely dismissed this guy is unbelievable. I highly 100% recommend Anthony Blalock he is a winner. I call him the magician he is the very best !!

MR. BLALOCK IS A BLESSING
MR. BLALOCK SAVED MY LIFE!! I came to Mr. Blalock with DUI #2 and a violation of probation from DUI#1. First DUI I had injured passengers (extreme injuries) and I was under the legal drinking age so I did jail time. So I knew for sure I would be looking at jail time for #2. I hired Mr. Blalock June of 2017 to take my case, and I am so thankful I did. Mr. Blalock always made me feel safe and confidant that everything would be alright. He never made any promises to me, but he always assured me that he would do everything he could to get my DUI dropped or the best deal possible & that helped me sleep every night. Mr. Blalock and I had a long journey, but the wait was so worth it!! After a year, June 20, 2018 Mr. Blalock notified me that he had gotten my 2nd DUI dropped to a wet & reckless, fines cut in half, NO Jail Time, Probation re-instated (which is already expired), and the best part. . . License back same day with NO interlock device! & 12hr DUI class!!! I couldn't be any more thankful. What I thought would turn into a 2year jail sentence and the end of my life, actually turned into a huge blessing with a Lesson Learned! & a slap on the wrist! I am so happy to say, I can now move forward with my life and put this all behind me. Thank you Mr. Blalock for all your wonderful hard work!! You are truly an Angel!

Great lawyer. Very hard working and professional.
Nothing but good to say about Mr. Blalock. Not only was he extremely professional, he was very easy to get a hold of and communicate with. Worth every penny. Did a great job getting me an awsome deal on my second DUI. Very happy with the result. I highly recommend him to represent you.

Anthony Balalock saved my son from jail
If you are looking for an attorney for your son or daughter, call Anthony Balalock. My son who graduated from college and was hired at a large firm, was arrested for not one DUI but two DUI's. As a parent i didnt know what to do, all I could see is my son going to jail and loosing his high paying job. My son did some checking and found Anthony to represent him. Thank god Anthony took my son's case, he saved my son from going to jail and by son can continue his work. I'm so grateful for Anthony Blalock. If you need an attorney, hire Anthony Blalock he will be in your corner,

SAVED MY LIFE. Best Lawyer Around.
Mr. Blalock is without a doubt the best lawyer anyone could want in their corner. I cannot say enough about his extensive knowledge of the law and absolute professionalism inside and outside of the courtroom. If it was not for his relentless and meticulous work on my case, I would be incarcerated. Mr. Blalock takes on your case as if it was his own; you will NOT find that anywhere else. Anthony knows how to navigate the court system and always finds a way to get a decision in your favor. Seriously, look no further. You will not be disappointed. When you sign up for his services, every single part of the process is smooth and completely automated. You receive notifications each step of the way, he is very communicative and easy to get a hold of. I highly, highly recommend Mr. Blalock.

The BEST lawyer in town!
When I caught my case, I immediately thought of Anthony. I called him frantically and explained what had happened. He listened and assured me that everything would be ok. He went to my court on my behave and updated me on everything. This went on for months, yet he kept me informed. His office employees were just as good. Everytime I had a question, they had an answer! I'm extremely happy with how my case turned out and how Anthony and his staff took care of me. I would highly recommend Anthony and his team!

Took care of everything. I mean everything
He kept me up to date on everything that happened. I had a 2 day notice before he went to any court case on my behalf. The mycase website was easy to use and excellent way to get ahold of him or his staff. 5 stars. Highly recommended

The ratings are REAL
Couldn't have asked for better help! I was recommended by a friend to hire Mr. Blalock as my lawyer and I couldn't have made a wiser decision than that! Took care of not only one DUI of mine but 2 at the same time and didn't budge one bit for either or. Both cases were handled with great professionalism and attention to detail. If you want a lawyer with an impeccable reputation , Anthony Blalock is the right man for the job!

Extremely satisfied with this lawyer!
I hired Anthony to defend me for 2 DUIs and in the meantime I got a third. It looked bleak with an expected sentence behind bars for 200 plus days. I thought I was going to lose my job and my residence if I was unable to work. Anthony was able to get me a reduced sentence for half the time served with an electronic home detention device so I'm able to continue to work and earn money. This is an excellent lawyer who worked a miracle for me and my family.

BEST BEST BEST Lawyer in this area- I'm so grateful!
I probably should've got a DUI but he was successful and getting my charges lowered to reckless driving. He was very knowledgeable and detailed during my entire case. I knew exactly what was going on at every moment. He was the first lawyer I met in person after searching online and I trusted him with my case from the moment I met him, ultimately we won. Anthony was extremely friendly and always willing to answer my questions in a timely matter. I HIGHLY recommend him!
