During the past several years that I have been partnered with Sam, I have witnessed first hand his competence as an attorney and his compassion as a person. He advocates with passion for his clients but always brings a human side to his cases as well. He has successfully represented hundreds of clients with skill and experience that is rare in the legal profession.

Top Notch Criminal Defense Legal Team I've worked with Pak and McRae Law two times now. Once for my father in law's accident case and again for a personal traffic citation. Sam McRae who has a long history of working on traffic cases was excellent in both of this cases. He helped us manage the whole confusing process of trying to get the police reports for insurance, get the incidents reduced in court, and even helped us with directly paying the fines. Their rates are also very reasonable. Everyone at the firm that I have encounter is a professional, an expert with a great track record in their fields and also just great hard working lawyers who are very connected in the local court systems in terms of knowing how to navigate the justice system maze that exists. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Extremely knowledgeable and personable. Sam took care of three different tickets for me on three different occasions. One of them was actually 5 different tickets and he got it reduced to one ticket. Another ticket was in South Georgia and I didn't even have to go to court. He took care if it over the phone.

PHONE CONSULT AVAILABLE. I have personal experience in thousands of criminal cases, ranging from minor traffic offenses to serious felonies. In almost a decade of practice, I have worked with hundreds of judges and prosecutors and have appeared in court thousands of times. I know the system and how to work my knowledge to your advantage.

EXCLUSIVE PRACTICE - My practice is limited to Criminal, DUI, and Traffic defense cases. I am not a general practitioner who handles many different types of law. Criminal law has been my focus area since I became a lawyer in 2010.

TEAM APPROACH - When you retain me, you are retaining a law firm of three attorneys with extensive experience in criminal and traffic defense. We work cases together and will select the best attorney to handle your case. The least experienced attorney in my firm has seven years of experience. Few law firms possess our background and extensive experience in this area of the law. You can feel confident that we will get the job done.

CUSTOMER SERVICE - I treat clients the way I would want to be treated if I was experiencing legal problems – with honesty, kindness, and respect. I do not tell clients what they want to hear just to get a case. I do not scare clients into retaining me. What I do is tell clients the truth and what the best strategies are, right over the phone. I call clients back, and respond to texts and emails.

FREE IN-DEPTH CONSULTATIONS - I gladly talk to new clients over the phone. I will answer every question that you have over the phone, or even in person if you prefer (covid-19 permitting), for free. I will gladly explain all of your options, give you my honest opinion about what could happen to you and I even quote a fee right over the phone. I will not lead you astray with false promises. I believe that an informed client is the best client.

Pak and McRae Law has offices in Midtown and Decatur if you want to meet us in person please call ahead as we are frequently in court.
