Cases We Handle
Any drunk driving charge in Georgia is a serious offense. Even a first conviction has mandatory jail time. It can be as much as 12 months for a third offense.
Jail isn’t the only possible penalty when you face a DUI/DWI charge. It can create problems with your driver’s license, employment, and international travel. However, drunk driving charges are often defendable. A proper DUI investigation is complex. Simple errors by the police officer can mean that the allegations don’t hold up in court. Our attorneys know what to look for.
Don’t just assume that you must accept a drunk driving charge. Our attorneys can attack the charges from all directions. We ensure you understand all the considerations to make the best decisions for your case.
If you’re charged with theft by taking or a similar charge, understand that you have important rights. The state must prove the intent of the person accused of theft – that they meant to take the property.
Our law firm defends people facing theft, theft by deception, robbery, embezzlement, shoplifting, and other takings charges. The state must prove all the elements of theft. If even one of the elements fails, the charges against you will be thrown out.
Assault and Battery/Domestic Violence
Any assault and battery or domestic violence charge is very serious. Your reputation is on the line. However, domestic violence and assault and battery charges are often one person’s word against another. Our attorneys have the training and experience to evaluate witnesses’ statements and investigate their credibility.
You have legal rights – especially when someone has accused you of a violent offense. You have the right to present your side of the story. Our criminal defense makes sure you get to present your case and that you do so effectively.
If you’re facing a sexual assault crime, the potential penalties may be years in prison and monitoring, including the Georgia Sex Offender Registry. However, merely facing charges isn’t the same as a conviction. You may take the case to trial, question the evidence against you, and argue for your innocence.
We will aggressively defend you if you are facing any sex crime. We can investigate statements of witnesses and evidence. Our investigation doesn’t just stop with the police report. We go further to prepare your case and aggressively defend you.
Drug Possession and Dealing
Even what seems like a minor drug offense can have long-lasting consequences. Fines, jail time, and a suspension of your license can all follow you into the future. The mark on your record can hurt you in your employment and other areas of your life.
Police often assume that proving a drug charge is easy. However, many elements of a drug charge include showing actual or constructive possession and proving what the substance is. The exact potential penalties you face depend on the substance involved, the amount involved, your criminal history, and other factors. Controlled substances are categorized into various schedules.
There are multiple ways to address a drug charge – a conditional discharge may be an option, and drug court may be available – but first and foremost, you have the right to exercise your trial rights and fight the charges. We work to build your defenses and pursue the best course of action for you.
White Collar Crimes/Fraud/Financial Crimes
If you’re facing a white-collar crime charge in Carrollton, hire legal counsel as soon as possible. Charges of using someone’s credit card, identity theft, corporate fraud, and other crimes can be daunting. However, our lawyers are prepared to work through the details and build your defenses.
Reckless Driving/Other Traffic Offenses
Drivers facing traffic offenses should take the charges seriously. Traffic matters vary greatly from infractions with monetary fines to felonies with potential prison time. It’s important to know the possible penalties of the charge that you’re facing.
Although law enforcement may try to convince you that it’s just a traffic offense, your right to be heard is absolute. The state must prove the charges against you. The charges can follow you into the future, so it’s important to address them directly. Our experienced law firm can represent you.
Probation and Parole Violations
Our attorneys handle probation and parole violation cases. A probation or parole violation may mean a resentencing and additional penalties. If the violation is a new charge, you may face the new criminal charge as well as the violation. Our legal team fights probation and parole violation allegations. We know how important it is to fight for your rights when you’re accused of violating the terms of your release.
Felony and Misdemeanor Representation
Our law firm handles felony, misdemeanor, and traffic offenses. Any criminal matter can have serious consequences. That’s why we fight aggressively for your interests, whatever charges you are facing.
We can also represent you in your expungement case.
