What Our Clients Say


I was arrested in Athens-Clarke County. I was walking down the sidewalk and was illegally pulled over and then detained after a brief conversation with the officer, Jason was able to get all of the charges dropped without any community service or probation which is amazing. From the time of my initial hearing to the very last hearing for this illegal arrest was not even two months so Jason is a diligent worker and very reliable. I would definitely recommend him to anybody looking for a lawyer.



I am couldn't be happier with my choice to hire Jason Slider for my criminal case. I was charged with a DUI in Clarke County; Jason told me that Clarke County prosecutors are very tough on DUIs, but Jason kept negotiating with the Prosecutor and it paid off. He was able to get my DUI reduced to reckless driving. He kept great contact with me and always kept me informed. His office is in a very convenient location-just right across the street from the Courthouse. I absolutely recommend Jason to anyone.
