Regardless of the charges you are facing, you can count on me to be totally on your side as I work diligently to help build you the strongest available defense.
My Goals in Every Case
As a Georgia criminal defense attorney, I approach every single case with certain goals in mind, including:
- Dismissal of charges, whenever possible
- Avoiding or minimizing fines
- Avoiding or minimizing jail or prison sentences
- Felony reduction to misdemeanor charges
- Avoiding a record of conviction
My objective is to design and carry out a strategic defense that will protect and preserve your future. A misdemeanor conviction on your record is damaging. A felony conviction on your record is devastating. That is I why I will work hard to help you get the best possible defense, regardless of the type of charge you may be facing.
How I Approach a Case
Whether you are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor, every case is unique and each has its own set of facts. In every case, I will:
Carefully review police reports for mistakes and procedural omissions.
Examine all of the issues pertaining to the police's decision to arrest you. Was there probable cause? Was there sufficient evidence to make an arrest?
Personally interview all relevant witnesses.
If chemical testing was involved in your case, I will determine if it was properly administered in compliance with Georgia law.
Conduct legal research to determine if the state possesses sufficient evidence to convict you of what you have been charged with (often they do not).
Consult with you on all of the issues listed above, and determine if your case is appropriate for trial or if a negotiated settlement is in your best interest.
Advise you early in the process of the steps you should take so that we can present you in the best light to prosecutors and judges.
