This was the best attorney we could have asked for. We could not have asked for more.

Richard was ready to fight the matter all the way. Richard Rice is one of the best criminal defense lawyers you can find in Georgia. Richard represented me during some of the most difficult years of my life when I faced federal felony charges. He was there for me every step of the way--from the arraignment, discussing our strategy, going over discovery and motions, and negotiating with the government. Most impressively, we were able to have the government initially withdraw their original indictment. Ultimately, although I decided not to go to trial, Richard was ready to fight the matter all the way. After much soul searching, I ended up pleading to a single misdemeanor count, resulting only in probation and a relatively low fine, with NO jail time.

Richard discusses all your options intelligently, and he works diligently to meet all deadlines and provides transparency about the process, assessment of the risks and potential outcomes. Richard's past tenure as a former Assistant US Attorney was invaluable--the connections he has to speak with the government, the court, and the probation officers are critical to effective representation. But Richard isn't only just an excellent lawyer--he was compassionate and had great empathy, reaching out to comfort me during the agonizing decisions that had to be made. His services are worth EVERY penny, should you ever be so unlucky to undergo the terrible ordeal of criminal prosecution. He has my highest recommendation.

One of the best lawyers I have seen You knew details regarding the case that we never discussed in detail and I had only stated to you in passing. You truly are very good at what you do. I will always appreciate how you treated me and helped me during that tough time.

They helped save my relationship with my children and gave me my life back. When my spouse filed for divorce, I was hit by surprise. Suddenly my world was falling apart and my children were being turned against me. Morris & Adams helped me to regain control of my life and salvage my relationship with my kids.

Mr. Rice is an excellent attorney. Not only is he very knowledgeable, but most importantly to me, He fought for my rights like they were his own. He kept me aware of the details in my case and never tired of explaining them to me. He was able to arrange an acceptable settlement but he was prepared to go to trial if necessary. He realized the emotional stress and the financial drain on me personally, and worked with me to make sure that I made the best decisions for me. He was totally on my side. I recommend Mr. Rice without reservation.
