Client Testimonials

“My DUI dropped to a lower offense”

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

Mr. Barton without a doubt has earned my respect by controlling the courtroom in a respectful but persistent manner that allowed for my DUI to be dropped to a lower offense. He used his investigative skills combined with a whole person concept and painted a clear and decisive picture to the judge. He has an amazing concept of the law and is out to protect citizens with his knowledge. I would refer him to anyone in need of someone to investigate a DUI case or assure all policies and procedures were followed correctly. Great Job.

Encountering my first and LAST experience with a DUI was very scary and overwhelming. Mr. Barton was able to guide me thru the process and help me get a jump up on everything that needed to be done. Due to his advice and guidance, I was able to have all of my requirements completed prior to my court date which gave me a better and quicker outcome in court. Mr. Barton has always been available. He has always returned my calls and he has been able to walk me thru this dreadful situation. I highly recommend him.

I have known Tom since the earliest days of his practice. On the southside of Atlanta, Tom is both well-known and well-liked by judges, prosecutors and (most importantly) his clients. I have referred legal matters to Tom and hired him to help me run interference in several difficult cases in Henry and Clayton Counties. I put my trust in Tom’s skills and connections in the legal community.

“Cares about his clients”

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Tom for many years. I have watched him in court and sent him clients as well. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is extremely hard working and cares about his clients. He has gotten results in certain courts that NOBODY else could have gotten. Do not take an easy going laid back personality as a lawyer who does not care, quite the opposite is true. I give Tom my highest endorsement.

Tom Barton is one of the best. He and I have worked on various issues together and he one of the most hardworking and knowledgeable lawyers in Georgia.

Facing a DUI charge? You NEED the right attorney!

The penalties for a DUI conviction in the state of Georgia depend on the facts of your case, and also on your criminal history. Commonly for a first DUI conviction, you are facing a day in jail, 40 hours of community service, a year on probation, a substance abuse evaluation, DUI school, fines and court fees.

Attorney Barton is a member of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the National College for DUI Defense and the Defense of Drinking Driver’s Network. For both state and federal criminal court representation, an aggressive and honest attorney and an experienced trial lawyer, you can count on his representation.

The best defense when faced with any DUI arrest, whether it is happened before or not, is to contact a lawyer skilled in drunk driving defense as soon as possible. You may think that if you pay the fine and agree to the terms and conditions of the arresting officer,  everything will be fine. However, you could be faced with a 12-month license suspension, jail time and a permanent mark on your record, even if this is your first offense.

Important: You have only 30 days to save your license from suspension!

Georgia DUI Attorney Tom Barton can help you with any drunk driving related charge, from multiple offenses to first-time arrests. Whether you are under the age of 21 or over, whether you are from out of state or local, whether you are facing a misdemeanor or felony offense, Mr. Barton can help minimize the damage and the penalty. You have ten days from the time of your arrest to challenge the charges and protect your license.
