Client Testimonials

"I have hired Joe for some of my family's criminal cases. He has always been reliable not only on my family's but my friends who I referred him to. It's hard to find a lawyer who's honest, experienced , and hard working as he is. He was our peace of mind in our family's most difficult time. I wouldn't think twice to hire him again and would highly recommend him if anyone needs an excellent lawyer. We're grateful for all he's done for us."

"I had hired Joe to defend my case, which involved 4 offenses, one of them being a felony. Three of the 4, including the felony, ended up getting dismissed. I had a lot stacked against me, and if it weren't for Joe, I am certain the decision would not have been the same. I could write a lot about the things that impressed about him. Things that are all in accordance with the other reviews here. Believe them. This is an attorney that truly cares about his clients. But getting to know him, you realize that he just cares about people and doing what's right. This sort of honesty and compassion is a rare thing. And know that he's going to fight for you. Joe is very knowledgeable, detail oriented, thorough, patient, was always prompt in following up, and always took as much time as I needed to answer questions and explain every detail. He was also straightforward, and I always felt that he put everything on the table. I always felt sure that Joe was doing everything he could to help my case, even before the decision, of which is undeniable proof about that. I could go on. This is how impressed I was by him. But I'll just say that if you need a criminal defense attorney, you really need look no further. I truly feel that won't find a better attorney in Atlanta, or anywhere."

"I hired Joe Habachy this Summer to help assist me with a charge against me. Joe went out of his way to be extremely prompt whenever I reached out to him. He went out of his way to talk with me when I could fit it into my schedule, even when he was out of town over vacation. He is super professional and was truly a pleasure to work with. I had never had to hire an attorney before, for anything, and he made me feel at ease with his confidence and demeanor. The situation I was in I wanted the best attorney available and I 100 % know that Joe is the best of the best. I knew when I hired Joe that I was doing what was best for me and my family. My case was totally dismissed. I couldn't be happier with my decision to select Joe. He is an outstanding attorney and a great person. Although my situation was very unfortunate I do feel like Joe had my back every step of the way and did EVERYTHING he could to help me out in this predicament. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone I know."

"Mr. Habachy is a dedicated and persevering attorney. He is committed to helping his clients and goes the extra mile to ensure they receive the best representation. I knew Mr. Habachy before using his service and I was always impressed with his knowledge, skill, dedication and drive when it came to helping others. When I needed legal assistance I had no second thoughts as to where to turn for help. During a very turbulent time for me and my family, we were able to maintain a sense of calm knowing I had the very best representation. Mr. Habachy was clear in explaining my situation to me in terms I was able to understand and took away the overwhelming fear and anxiety I was feeling. He was always available for consult and easy to reach. He was also very compassionate to my situation. I really felt he was on my side and absolutely there to do his best to help me. In the end, due to Mr. Habachy’s expertise, I was able to get into a pre-trial diversion program where upon community service I could have my record expunged. He was able to get the service hours down to something I could complete in a reasonable amount of time and my record has been cleaned. I’m now able to work and serve in my community without fear of a record that would have stood in the way. I can’t thank Mr. Habachy enough for all he did for me. I will be forever grateful. He is the absolute best criminal defense attorney. If a friend or loved one is ever in need of legal assistance, I’m directing them straight to Mr. Habachy."

"Mr. Habachy sucessfully represented our teenage son in a complicated criminal defense case. Mind you, he was the third defense lawyer on our case. The previous attorney adamantly told my family that a plead was the best deal. The plead, would have resulted in 10 years imprisonment and 10 years probation. You can't imagine the pain and agony our family went through unless you have traveled down such a road. Mr. Habachy was God sent. He told us he would take the case and do everything he could to unravel the mess our son was up against. I tell you, the case suddenly went into motion. We had more traction then ever. Mr. Habachy was there every step of the way. He provided the right level of details needed to make an informed, but yet difficult decisions. We were grateful for his sound professional guidance. He kept us level headed given our emotional turmoil, and we never felt rushed or pressured to come up with life changing decisions on the fly. He provided key facts that would make or break the case and was extremely knowledgeable and diligent about the ins and outs of the case. He followed through on every milestone and ensured nothing was missed. Our perception is that Mr. Habachy represented our son as if he was his. Even if the outcome would have been unfavorable, we were extremely satisfied with Mr. Habachy representation. Thanks be to God, Mr. Habachy won the case and our son came home. Like I say to my husband, I will say to you "every family needs a Joe Habachy for times like these."

"In summer 2015 I was charged with a misdemeanor which -- though a very minor offense on the surface -- could have easily impacted my livelihood, my ability to seek gainful employment in the future in my field (education). The evidence was straight-forward, and I expected (and prepared for) the worst. Mr. Habachy contacted the Solicitor General of the county in which the offense occurred. He explained my situation: how devastating it would be for a such a petty offense on my criminal record to almost certainly keep me from being hired as a teacher ever again. Through a plea negotiation, the Solicitor General agreed to dismiss the charges if I paid a fine, took an education course, and served 40 hours of community service. This was a completely unexpected, virtually miraculous outcome. I never believed the charges could be completely dropped, as I had already used a First Offender status plea for a case of bad judgment back in college. Throughout his representation, Mr. Habachy was in constant contact with me via email and cell phone (calls and texts). I was always up-to-date on where my case was, each phase as it unfolded, what time and when I needed to be in court. After my plea agreement, he even followed up with me mid-way through my time limit to check in and see that I was completing my community service and the required coursework. And in a final gesture of professionalism and flexibility, when the date came for my charges to be dismissed in court, Mr. Habachy arranged for me to be represented in absentia, as I had undertaken new employment in Tucson, Arizona by that time and would have had hardship trying to return to Georgia for a very short court appearance. Joseph S. Habachy: Truly Going Above and Beyond for Me"

"I've dealt with a lot of Lawyers throughout my life, but it wasn't until I met with Joe Habachy I experienced REAL dedication from an attorney. His knowledge of law and his sincerness to each case is the most appreciative aspects I find of Joe Habachy character. Joe gave me honest opinions and did his due deligence on every matter. There's no other defense attorney that I'd rather deal with. I can even call on Joe for other matters and his right there to answer the call full attention.. For that I thank him... My family thanks him and when you met and hire Joe I guarantee you'll be thanking him too!!!"

"I have hired Joe on three occasions over the past 10 years to represent my son who has had several serious drug cases. Without exception Joe has been able to obtain the best possible outcome for him in every case while showing compassion, understanding and kindness to us throughout the process. He is patient in explaining the situation, the law, the possible outcomes and has consistently been able to please us and surprise us with the ultimate outcome. He and his staff are professional, timely and caring. I truly believe he has saved my son's life by giving us hope and the best possible future given the unfortunate situations. He is not only our Lawyer for life but a true friend."

"In February of 2000, my personal actions and poor judgement had landed myself into quite a handful of trouble. Trouble enough to "lend" my life to the state for a good 8-11 years! At least, that was what the prosecutor was recommending. And to be quite frank, I would have deserved every bit of it. What I had become involved with completely defied the way in which my parents raised me to be. Yet, the lure of easy money and drugs were too much for the young man I once was. I simply could not walk away from it. I hedged my bets - and the world came crashing down - in the form of a team of narcotic officers assisted with the DEA. Throughout all the fearful nights and uncertainties of what my outcome would be, Joe was there every single step of the way. He was always straightforward and brutally honest (especially with my family) about what the outcome could be. We all hoped and prayed for the best, but expected to land somewhere (at least a little bit) above the worst. And when that fateful day landed...... the sentence was truly undeserving of what should have been. I am blessed. So much so, that what Joe made happen in that courtroom that day, forever changed my life. Fast forward fifteen years later: I have a beautiful family and own a very successful business. Not to mention that my criminal history is felony free. I would absolutely recommend Joe Habachy as a first choice in attorneys."

"I would highly recommend Joe Habachy .He is very professional & courteous of your time and works very hard to give you the best legal advice. Joe took care of a DUI case a couple years back. He saved my license and keep in touch with me throughout the whole process. He kept me at ease and answered all my questions. He did an excellent job coordinating my case and I would recommend Joe for all your DUI and criminal cases."

- Former Client


"Joe Habachy is a wonderful attorney. You can tell he really cares about his client's rights and will fight for them. He has a lot of experience in criminal defense. He was very good about keeping me informed on my case, which is nice because some attorneys tend to leave you in the dark. I will definitely call Joe again if I need legal advice."

- Former Client


"I was an interpreter for Joe and foreign clients for Drug and Criminal cases who are in serious trouble. Joe Habachy was assisted them with extra careful with their parents of unstable conditioned young kids by Drug and Criminal cases. His representation has made the difference in them having the best possible defense. I felt his strong proud and confidence through his long experience and knowledge. Clients are grateful and very thankful to Mr. Habachy for everything he did for them. I would recommend Mr. Habachy to anyone who needs to save their life by their trouble."

- Former Client


"October 13, 2014 I think Joe is an outstanding attorney who without a doubt knows the law. Joe’s moral compass allows him to keep his personal moral values separate from a neutral moral stance that he practices as an attorney. He adheres to making sure his clients' needs and interest are the priority and providing a fair trial. I have referred him to several people in need of excellent counsel and I will continue to do so."

- Former Client


"Joseph Habachy has been my attorney for 14 years. Every time I have needed a lawyer or simply advice he is the one i trust. He talks me through every step so I always know where I stand. I once needed a lawyer in California and he made sure not only I had the best person out there, he continually followed up throughout the process. He is my go to guy! Joseph has helped with divorces/restraining orders/DUI/ incorporating/ entertainment contracts -you name it Joe is there for me and my family."

- Former Client


"I have known Mr. Habachy for about ten years. He has given advice and direction to my family during that period of time based upon his experience in the field of entertainment law. Our oldest son is a working actor based in Los Angeles and represented by two different agencies and a manager, and from time to time, Mr. Habachy has been called on for his advice. Our son is now twenty-seven years old, and Mr. Habachy first took an interest in his musical talents while our son was still in high school. Over the years, Mr. Habachy has become not only a trusted counsel based upon his legal expertise, but is looked upon as our friend. I would not hesitate to recommend him highly to anyone seeking legal advice in any area of Mr. Habachy’s practice."

"Unexpected things can happen when you're at the wrong place at the wrong time. I recently got arrested me and charged with something I did not commit. Once being released from the county jail, I tried to get video evidence to prove my innocence, but unfortunately I was unable to get a hold of it. I was very worry because I do not want it to be on record. I was very stressful in search for the right criminal defense attorney. Luckily, my friend referred me to Mr. Joe Habachy. When I first met Joe, I wasn't sure if he would be able to help me. Then again, Joe made a great first impression, so I was very confident that he can easily help me with my situation. Joe worked very hard on my case and always provided appropriate responses whenever I had questions. Within a short period of time, my record has been cleared. I can never thanks Joe enough for everything he had done to help me."

- Former Client


"Joe is an extremely remarkable attorney. When I first hired Joe as my attorney in 2006, He listened to me and helped me see the hope in a bad situation. He is very resourceful, inquisitive and definitely knows his way around a courtroom. I felt like he truly wanted the best possible outcome for me and I saw that with all the hard work he put into my cases. I also really liked that he never settled. He always kept trying to negotiate with the DA to get the best possible outcome that I deserved. I never once questioned my fate with Joe as my attorney. Later in 2008 and again in 2011, I hired Joe and also recommended him to several of my close friends who thanked me tremendously. I truly am grateful for Joe because he helped me get through some of the toughest situations I've been through in my life."

"Joe Habachy agressively and successfuly defended me against third (3rd) DUI charge. He had my DUI charge dismissed. He also arranged best case scenarios for me on more than one other occasion. If I'm in trouble I would only call Joe Habachy."

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Joe for almost 5 years. Joe has been to go to guy for myself and several of my personal friends. He is both professional and trustworthy. He is quick to respond to any questions that I may have and kept me updated throughout the process. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone who is looking for legal counsel. Joe is one of the BEST attorneys in Atlanta."

"Mr. Habachy is an extremely competent and trustworthy lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the law. To boot he is very responsive to clients needs and concerns. Like a good doctor he has the requisite bed side manners to patiently listen to the client and answer their questions. He handled my traffic violation case very well. I was informed of every step ahead of time, and his appearance and demeanor in court was par excellence. That is what you need from your lawyer when you are in trouble: excellent representation!"

"Two members of my family were involved in a joint case against the state; therefore, we had to hire two different attorneys, with one of them being Joe Habachy. Unfortunately, the second attorney we hired did not exude the professionalism that Mr. Habachy did. I was thankful that I was able to depend on Joe for prompt responses to any questions I had whether it be through an email, phone call, and even TEXT MESSAGING! Within minutes, or certainly by the end of the business day, Mr. Habachy answered my questions, and counseled me on the best option for our family. He was so flexible with us, and willing to go the extra mile, that he even came out to our home ON A SUNDAY! I am happy to say that our case was resolved, and that along with knowing that we have a dependable attorney to defend our family if needed, we have a friend that maintains our best interest in mind and does not just view us as “clients”. I would definitely recommend Joe Habachy’s services to anyone looking to enlist the help of an attorney with their case. He was able to help us “get on with our lives” in the least painful way possible, and we are so grateful that he was referred to us when needed."

- Former Client


"I would definitely recommend Joe to anyone who is in need of his services. He helped me greatly on a DUI case, and in fact, after it was all set and done, the case was reduced to a traffic ticket! Joe is very knowledgeable about the law and always tries the best for his clients."

- Former Client


"I was very impressed with Mr. Habachy's legal counsel and guidance in my DUI case and a second time, I required his professional legal consel a on a vandalism charge. I am not at all familiar with the legal system. I was scared and needed a lawyer who could help me through 2 very difficult times in my life. A friend of mine referred me to Mr. Habachy and I am so glad he did. I had 2 very hard cases, due to the breathalizer test and a witness on the second charge. It was not an easy time in my life when these arrests happened, I didn't know what to do or what my future would hold for me. Mr. Habachy was very thorough, professional and dedicated to helping me in both of my arrests. He helped me get through both cases successfully, dismissed and expunged. I do hope I do not have any other legal problems in the future, but If I did, I would not hesitate to call Mr. Habachy again or refer him to a friend in need of professional and reliable legal guidance, as my friend did for me. I am grateful every day for what Mr. Habachy was able to do for me with his knowledge of legal system and personable character. Thanks!"

"Mr. Habachy advised me on multiple traffic violations. He was quick to respond to my calls, texts and emails. He was always kind, professional and extremely knowledgable. He went out of his way to help me settle one particular citation for my mother while she was in the hospital. I received excellent legal advice and with his guidance, resolved my citations. I would highly recommend Mr. Habachy to anyone and have many times."

- Former Client


"Mr. Habachy represented me in a complicated DUI case while I was in law school. Getting a DUI charge while attending law school is probably one of the worst things that I could have done, as my "fitness to practice law" was thoroughly questioned. I was in grave danger of being unable to sit for the bar exam by the board that determines fitness. In addition to potentially affecting my legal career, the DUI also had a real effect on my personal life. Mr. Habachy counseled me through the entire process. He was a great communicator and I can honestly say that there was never a question of mine that was left unanswered. Mr. Habachy was able to get my DUI reduced to reckless driving and because of his zealous representation, I was able to move forward with my life and career. My life would have been very different without him."

- Former Client


"I've had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Habachy for over 5 years. His knowledge and expertise in handling criminal matters is beyond compare. I consider myself very fortune to have had him represent me in the past. He was able to offer me advice and answer all my questions in regards to my case. Thanks to his help I was able to have my charge dismissed. He truly cares about each and every one of his clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal services, due to the exceptional effort he puts into every case."

- Former Client


"Joe is a great attorney and a good person. I have referred business to him for many years and can say that I would entrust anyone's future to him, especially if a lot is at stake. He is a disciplined person with excellent work habits for his trade. Joe is surgical in his approach to representation, never taking "the details" for granted. I can't say enough about his abilities. Perhaps I can best summarize them by simply saying, he was born to be an attorney. He would be my first choice!"

- Former Client


"Poor choices of some of our youth can have detrimental effects on so many. If you find yourself with this unexpected need, I highly recommend Joseph Habachy with his vast experience in all aspects of the law. Joe provides thorough legal representation by first offering accurate predictions of various outcomes and your specific options. Joe is a family man first, attorney second so we trust him to represent our family."

Never left me standing in the dark.he doesnt put my hopes up nor down.very straight up guy.Always cheered me up when I thought there is no hope in my case/brothers case and proofed me right.I wish I would had a lawyer like him now up here."

- Former Client


"I have used Joe twice now to represent me and both times he did an excellent job.. I came to him initially because the attorney that was originally representing me was doing a terrible job and I needed to find someone else so I did some research and ended up going with Joe. when he took over things really changed for the Better and it was refreshing to have somebody that was able to communicate with me the right way and be honest without jerking me around but also get the Job done. to say the least he did a great job and that's why I went with him on my next case and will continue to use him in the future."

- Former Client


"I was facing 20 years in prison. Mr. Habachy saved my life and helped me be able to work and be where I am today. I am grateful and very thankful to Mr. Habachy for everything he did for me. I was facing 20 years and ended up with 2 years probation. I also plead first offender, so my record is clean now, and the probation was successfully completed. I would recommend Mr. Habachy to anyone who needs to save their life from the courts and prison. He is the man that will help you get on the right path and will give you an opportunity to live free and will make you realize that a responsible and honest life is the way to live."

- Former Client


"My husband and I first hired Joe in 2008. He defended my husband in both federal and state courts in Georgia. From our first encounter, Joe impressed me by not claiming to be a "miracle" worker but explaining to us exactly what our position was in the case and what he could deliver to us. Since that time we have used Joe's services many times and I am consistently pleased with his professional acumen, his honesty and genuine concern for my family as a whole. Each time we have used Joe as our attorney, I am convinced that his representation has made the difference in us having the best possible defense. Joe has served as our attorney in a few federal revocation hearings and Joe's commitment to his clients shines in the courtroom and he refuses to back down until he is convinced that the most positive outcome has been reached. . I have referred several clients to Joe and all have been pleased and have referred others. Joe's prices are fair and reflect the level of service he and his practice provide."

"Joe Habachy assisted me with a music publishing contract. I felt he communicated clearly with me and provided expertise within a timely fashion. The advice Joe Habachy gave was valuable and clear. I would recommend him for legal services, as he and his staff are professional and trustworthy."

- Former Client


"Most good attorneys are kept busy with an influx of work but few have a good bedside manner or are receptive to maintaining an approachable and trustworthy relationship. In addition to having a firm understanding of law and a reputable history practicing it; a focus on soft skills and empathy for their client is what makes an attorney GREAT. Most businesses focus on ‘The Ultimate Question’… “Would you recommend us to your friends and family?”…..Why shouldn’t attorneys do the same? I recommend Joe Habachy! Joe has lent an ear on many occasions and has offered trustworthy guidance and understanding. He helped establish my trademark and assisted me with the process for maintaining it. I remain in contact with Joe and he never hesitates to offer direction with regards to intellectual property questions. I highly recommend Joe Habachy for your legal needs."

- Former Client


"Our previous attorney (highly recommended) had only one option for my son- jail and need more money to make it happen. We hired Mr. Habachy and My only regret is not finding him sooner! He discussed the details of my son’s case in a thorough, caring manner. Explained the charges, their strengths and weaknesses, making sure we fully understood every aspect. I was able to contact him at any time with any questions or concerns and he replied to my emails& calls within minutes (which I greatly appreciate!). He kept me informed at each stage of the process. It was a very traumatic time in my life and he was just an amazing attorney to work with and helped me get through that time. He was able to negotiate the best possible outcome for my son. If it were not for the experience and care that Mr. Habachy, my son would not have a future. I would strongly recommend his services to anyone in need of legal representation. Mr. Habachy is very professional, prompt, knowledgeable and simply ONE OF THE BEST!!"

- Former Client


"Joe Habachy was a gift to our family when our son needed legal support for a very troubling DUI/drug possession case. We were in a complete panic after our son's arrest and interviewed several attorneys, including the former DA of DeKalb County. All the attorneys were competent, good people, but we chose Joe because of his sincerity, his trustworthiness, his tenacity and his calm, attentive demeanor. It proved to be a good decision. It was a long journey, but thanks to Joe, our son has his future back. We don't know what we would have done without Joe Habachy by our side during this terrible time."

- Former Client


"For the last 15 years, Joe Habachy has represented myself, my family, close friends and company with impeccable skill and service. Not only has he been diligent when asked upon, he goes the extra mile every time. His honesty and integrity has been a constant and is the reason why he has been my lawyer for almost two decades. I would recommend him 10 out of 10 times for anyone who wants a tried, honest lawyer whose best interest is yours."

- Former Client
