Customer Reviews


M. Howard

Past Client

I hired Mr. Ben Royster on Monday January 25th 2021 to handle an outstanding FTA warrant and licence suspension for me that had been outstanding since 2012. Not only did he immediately go to bat for me, he was able to get it resolved and cleared within 2 day's. I live in Georgia. It was such a pleasant experience. So thankful I had such a solid, trustworthy person on my team. Thanks Mr. Ben Royster.


Ellie H.

Past Client

This team is fantastic, quick, efficient, and always such a pleasure to work with. They are extremely knowledgeable of the area. Farm Credit works with Royster often due to dependability. I am grateful for the relationship and mission we have serve our customers and community!


Charles M.

Past Client

When I was run over by an unlicensed driver in 2014 I thought I was out of luck, but I called Brian and Ben anyway. That was one of the best decisions I've ever made. My advice: If you are in a legal situation, don't talk to anyone until you've talked to Royster and Royster.


Ginger H.

Past Client

If you need a good defense attorney Denise is the best, she puts it all out there so you know what to expect, we haven't been to court yet but I'm sure that Denise will do what she is planning on doing. She is very knowledgeable and the law and what needs to be done before court dates. So if you're in need she is the one you want on your side.
