Cases We Handle in Columbus, GA
Our attorneys conduct a thorough investigation when defending a DUI/DWI charge. There are many procedures for law enforcement officers to follow when they suspect drunk driving. The charge may not hold up in court if they make a mistake.
Constitutional issues may be a question. Law enforcement must have legal grounds to stop the vehicle and conduct sobriety tests. Having our team on your side ensures you examine every possible defense to fight the charges.
Exact penalties for a DUI charge vary based on whether the person has prior offenses. However, all DUI charges are serious. There may be jail time, fines, community service, suspension of your driver’s license, and a record that complicates employment and volunteer opportunities. However, there are things you can do to make the situation better. Our attorneys build a thorough defense on your behalf.
Theft and Embezzlement
Theft by taking and shoplifting charges are based on the amount that is allegedly taken. A charge may be a misdemeanor or a felony. Prompt investigation is key to determining what happened and possible defenses. Defending against a theft charge is more than just fighting a criminal charge. It’s about defending your good name. Our lawyers are proud to stand with you as we fight for your reputation and future.
Domestic Violence/Assault and Battery
There are many possible defenses to a domestic violence or assault and battery charge. The allegations may have never happened. There may be a lack of physical injuries. Issues with the credibility of complaining witnesses may call the charges into question. You have the right to aggressively fight the charges. We can represent you.
Our attorneys in Columbus, GA are here to fight for your interests when you need a strong legal defense for any sex crime. Allegations of a sex offense can be devastating – However, by themselves, charges alone are not a conviction. You have a right to a trial. When they’re trying to take away your freedom, let our criminal defense team fight for you.
By reviewing your case thoroughly, we are sure to raise all factual and legal issues important to protecting your rights when facing a drug crime. Not only must the police prove your intent to possess or supply the substance, but they must show that they investigated the case in a lawful manner. A deferral of adjudication or drug court program may be available to you.
Identity theft, misuse of a credit card, embezzlement, and fraud are just some of the financial charges our criminal defense attorneys handle. Our lawyers get to work evaluating the circumstances and all viable defenses. If you’re facing a fraud or white-collar crime charge, your reputation is on the line.
Other Traffic Crimes
In addition to drunk driving, there are several traffic offenses that may be charged as crimes. A traffic offense may result in jail time if it is a misdemeanor or felony. Like all other charges, the state must prove the allegations completely.
These charges carry jail time and can also bring license penalties that make it impossible to commute to work or care for family members. Our law firm can represent you if you are facing charges of hit and run, reckless driving, fleeing the police, and other offenses.
Probation and Parole Violations
If you are accused of violating your probation or parole, your freedom is at risk. You must defend against the accusation that you violated the terms of your conditional release. Don’t make the mistake of assuming that the charges are not important.
Don’t go to your hearing unprepared. Experience can be on your side – Our attorneys know what documents to prepare and how to question witnesses. Let us approach a probation or parole violation hearing to work towards the best outcome for you.
Adult and Juvenile Claims
A thorough understanding of the court system is key to preparing a strong defense. Moffitt Law accepts cases defending both adults and juveniles. Knowing the legal process, whether, in adult or juvenile court, we can best approach preparing your case. In addition, we ensure that you understand what to expect and what to do at each court appearance.
