Arrested or Charged? What Happens Next?

The majority of our criminal defense clients have found themselves facing the Georgia criminal justice system for the first time in their lives. They are concerned about their job, their family, their driver's license or professional license, their freedom, and the potential harm to their reputation for years to come.

If this sounds like you, you are not alone. The criminal process is complicated and there are many points at which an experienced and creative attorney can help you achieve a better outcome based on what is most important to you. The Criminal Attorney & DUI Lawyer at our firm will:

  • Help you understand the legal nature of your charges, including potential consequences for conviction of your charges or lesser included offenses
  • Discuss possible defenses to your charges — including whether the charges are valid to begin with and whether your rights were violated at any time by law enforcement officials
  • Keep you out of jail whenever possible, so you can continue living your life and supporting yourself and your family
  • Explain every step of the process and ensure you are prepared
  • Gather evidence and interview witnesses on your behalf
  • Represent you in negotiations with the prosecutor and honestly assess possible plea deals
  • Represent you in court and at trial
  • Argue for the best possible outcome at sentencing, if it comes to that, including alternative sentencing and conditions of probation
  • Work with you to address any separate concerns with the Georgia Department of Driver Services and professional licensing entities

Above all, our criminal defense team will assess the likely outcome of your case with integrity and honesty, based on our many years of experience.
