Thomas is an outstanding lawyer. He represented me in a case where I was charged with a DUI. He offered expert advice and fought with relentless persistence for my case. He knows the law, he knew the right course of action to take, and he followed through. In the end my case and all charges were dropped. I am so thankful he represented me.
I was arrested for DUI (my second one) in Atlanta 2 years back. I refused to blow (learned from my first one), but ended up doing the field test. I hired the same lawyer as I used for my first one…worst mistake ever. Not only did my original lawyer plead guilty on the first DUI (without my consent) but he also made arrangement on what HE thought was best on the current case without consulting me. My coworker recommended Mr. Willis. He raved on and on about how great and persistent Greg Willis is. I decided to go for it. Fired my first lawyer and hired Mr. Willis. Best thing I ever did. Going into this case Mr. Willis had his hands full. Not only did he have to go in and clean up the mess that my previous lawyer made but also go back on the promises that did not help my case that my previous lawyer made without my knowledge. That was a battle of its own. One thing that impressed me the most is Greg’s knowledge of everyone involved in the case: from arresting officer to the judge. He told me right away the worst case scenario and the fight that he was willing to put up to help me out of my mess. He communicated with me every step of the way in this process and in the end…WE WON!!!! Not only did I not get convicted, but the charge was dismissed. I sat next to Mr. Willis in court and listened to the argument that he presented based on a case form years ago as to why mine should be dropped. It was amazing. The knowledge and re-search that he put in just to help ME. In that moment I honestly felt that he had no other cases but mine that he has been working on this whole time. I would definitely recommend him over and over again to everyone that I know.
I was arrested for a DUI in Fulton County in 2006 by a GSP officer. I did all the field sobriety tests and blew in the breathalizer. I also took the breath test at the jail and blew .108. I was working with a lawyer my parents had on retainer. He dropped me because he was going to only persue civil cases and not criminal. A friend of mine who is a GSP officer recommended Mr. Willis and I am so glad he did. I wasn't satisfied with my last lawyer, but didn't know what a good lawyer could do until I got in touch with Mr. Willis. He gave me options of ways to persue my case. He made me feel very comfortable and confident in his abilities to get this resolved. He was there if I had any questions, and I did. His staff was very prompt in getting back to me whether it was by e-mail or by phone. With his hard work and determination, he got my charge of DUI dropped. I am pleading guilty to the failure to maintain charge I also got that night. I had to do some community service, take a DUI class, and pay a fine. I'll take these over a DUI charge any day. This will never happen to me again, but if it did I would definitely call Mr. Willis because I know he can and will deliver.
Greg Willis is the man. He has defended me way too many times, winning each and every case. In addition, I have sent several of my friends to him, and all of them would agree - Greg Willis is the best criminal defense attorney in the state of Georgia. I keep him on speed dial, and you should too. Thanks Willis, I'd be in a world of hurt without you.
