A Brief History of Our Atlanta Law Firm

Our law firm was formed in 2013 as a partnership between Sam McRae and Gunner Pak. We envisioned our Atlanta law firm representing everyday people charged with everything from traffic tickets all the way up to serious felonies. 

Immediately after law school, Sam McRae established himself as the go-to traffic lawyer in Dekalb County and Atlanta. He had trained with the Dekalb County Public Defenders Office during law school and had already participated in felony trials by the time he graduated.

Gunner Pak started his career as a prosecutor in south Georgia and Dekalb County before transitioning into criminal defense. For a period, he worked for a high-volume criminal defense law firm that specialized in handling cases for immigrants.

The two partners were joined by associate attorney Johnny Waller. Johnny quickly became a steady and reliable contributor in the law firm.

We Get It Done

Our logo "We Get it Done" comes out of a sentiment that our jobs are to get results for our clients. This can be accomplished through pragmatic means available to us as attorneys.

The history of this statement in our Atlanta law firm began when Johnny Waller was being trained to handle cases for us years ago. He had run into a problem in court and called the partners for advice. The advice he got was simply "get it done." 

This phrase signifies how all three of us learned to practice law by doing and problem solving in the courtroom. We are not the type of lawyers to drone on about legal theory. We are lawyers that provide solutions.

Courtroom Experience

Courtroom experience is important in the type of law we practice. Every attorney in our law firm began their careers in criminal law as a prosecutor or defense attorney. We spent countless hours in courtrooms doing and observing. 

We know what works and what does not. We probably know the judge and prosecutor by first names outside the courtroom. We know how to use the law to get our clients the best result possible because we have done your case many times before.

This courtroom experience separates us from the attorneys that simply want to "collect big fees for simple pleas." We are results driven because we know that is best for our business, and because we are passionate about helping clients.

As we grow our Atlanta law firm beyond Atlanta and to handle more complex criminal and personal injury cases we maintain the same mindset to get it done.

We are proud of the work we have done for our clients and are always happy when we hear feedback.

"Extremely Knowledgable 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."


"Sam McRae is a fantastic and effective advocate for his clients. As a fellow attorney, I have had the opportunity to be in court with Sam on many occasions and he never fails to get great results for his clients. He is well-connected, tenacious and dedicated to achieving the best outcomes. He is also compassionate and always available for his clients. I would unequivocally recommend Sam McRae as your attorney."


"This law firm is polite, professional, and prudent. They handled my traffic ticket and made it essentially go away. Even after missing my due date to pay the fine, they still helped me and did not charge me any additional fees! They were prompt to send me the court documents and explained my options comprehensively. This truly could not have been a better experience in dealing with an unpleasant situation. I rarely give reviews but these guys are stellar."
