I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said on Kudzu about Jackie Patterson... The man is the ALPHA and OMEGA of criminal defense attorneys! Jackie has either completely beaten charges altogether and/or negotiated them down to the absolute minimal for me THREE TIMES! I have referred other clients to Jackie, and the results have also always been the same: DISMISSED! In addition to this, he also conveys the utmost honesty and integrity in dealing with his clients regarding fees and billing. I recently referred another client to Jackie that, of course, he achieved the utmost-desired results of DISMISSAL, and since Jackie TOOK CARE OF BUSINESS so quickly/efficiently for this client, Jackie even refunded THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to the client that the client wasn't even expecting to be returned, and the client was GLADLY prepared for Jackie to have kept these THOUSANDS of dollars!

We found Mr. Patterson to truly be a man of his word. He handled our case with the utmost of professionalism and accomplished everything he said he could and more. He answered every question we had at any time. Our results were far better than we could have expected. We would definitely recommend him to anyone we know with the need of his type of services. In our opinion he is the best.

I've been working with Mr patterson for a few months and his services were great. The outcome of my case was great and he did things in my case that I did not know could be done. Mr Patterson, Please send my regards to your counterpart MS Solomon as she was great as well. I told her that in Court yesterday and figured that I would ask for for you to send her my praise. Again, thanks for your service and if at anytime I need your service, I will be in touch. And yes I will send referrals your way from family and friends when needed. Thanks a bunch Chris A Carter

Mr. Patterson's background has surely shown its value over the years for my family. He has provided legal representation in 4 cases, each resolved with a dismissal, one of which had even gone to trial. His knowledge of the law, professionalism and most of all his relationships within the court system is second to none. He is the only attorney I will ever hire!!!

Family member faced a bogus assault charge for following a woman when she cut in front of him in traffic.(He was taking his normal route home) She eventually yelled at him out of her window and he yelled back. She called 911. He got a notice in the mail for a hearing on assault charges!(Who knew in Georgia a person only has to "feel" threatened) He has no criminal record whatsoever and was extremely upset. I found Jackie Patterson on Kudzu.com. He not only put him at ease, but was also very professional and promised to stick with him until it was over. Well it was over before it started because Jackie got the charges dropped AND because he didn't go to court he reduced his original fee! Jackie is somehow friendly and professional at the same time, plus he knows his stuff! I have had to use the service of other lawyers for different things before, but I wouldn't use anyone else from here on. Jackie Patterson is the BEST Lawyer in Georgia HANDS DOWN!!

I contacted Jackie Patterson to help me with a family member's parole. He was upfront and honest and refused to take money from me, when he said he knew he could not make a difference for my particular situation. Other lawyers would take your money, knowing full well they wouldn't succeed with your case.

I had a neighbor accuse me of breaking their fence and truck window. Jackie had the case dismissed even before I arrived at the Hearing. He charged me $500 less than two other law firms that gave me quotes - proving that his prices are reasonable and fair. Excellent work by a top quality law firm that you can trust.

Jackie Patterson is undoubtedly the best lawyer that I have ever dealt with in the criminal/traffic court legal circuit. I was in an accident in February of this year in which I paid the ticket intially, but I was subpoened by the court system to appear for mandatory court. At the time of the accident my insurance had lapsed which I was not aware of until I filed a claim with my insurance. I was not written a ticket for the no insurance, only failure to yield. When I got to court Mr. Patterson not only got the case closed for that ticket, he worked with the judge and the other party's lawyer so that I can never be charged for having no insurance at the time of the accident. I walked out of the courtroom completely done, all within about 30 minutes of him talking with the judge. THANK YOU JACKIE FOR HELPING ME! If you need a great lawyer to represent you in any traffic case-CALL JACKIE!!! You will be so glad you did!

I was arrested for a DUI and it was my first time being in trouble with the law. I met with Jackie a few days after being arrested and I immediately felt confident that he was going to help me get out of this mess. Jackie is very knowledgeable, professional and determined. Jackie got my DUI reduced and I served 0 days in jail, received 0 hours of community service and best of all.....no trial! Thanks Jackie. You helped me through a very stressful time in my life. I couldn't have gotten through it without you.
