Attorney Endorsements

William C. Head
Endorsement: Criminal Defense
June 26, 2021
I hired Larry after his first year of law school. After he graduated, he stayed with my law firm. We have been partners for over 20 years and I can vouch for his encyclopedic knowledge of criminal laws in Georgia. Regardless of the complexity of the case, from traffic violations to driving under the influence to record restriction (expunction), Larry knows Georgia law. He has amassed over 500 AVVO 5-star reviews, and deserves the praise received from those clients.
