Any Georgia criminal charge is a serious matter. You could be facing jail time, significant fines, suspension of your driver’s license, or other penalties that could significantly affect your life and your future.
And facing a criminal charge is a difficult and stressful event for anyone to experience. Most people never imagined they could ever be charged with a criminal offense, and had never considered what could happen to them. Then, you are faced with being called before a Georgia criminal court. And you don’t know who to trust, or who is on your side…
I’m Charged With a Crime! What Kind of Help Do I Need?
That’s where we come in. We are criminal defense attorneys here in Georgia who are ready to fight for you. And, truthfully, that’s what you need right now. In the courtroom, there is no one else looking out for your best interest. The judge is supposed to be impartial at best, but many judges have little sympathy for defendants. And prosecutors just want to get convictions. It’s not their job to treat you fairly.
But it is ours. Criminal defense attorneys are the last line of defense against a powerful government. We fight to get you off. That’s our goal, a dismissal, or a not guilty. We do what is best for you, our client. And it doesn’t even matter if you may be guilty. You are innocent until that fact is proven, beyond a reasonable doubt. It is the defense attorney’s job to raise that doubt, and make the state prove every element of the charges against you.
It’s also our job to make sure you are treated fairly, and that government power over the individual is checked and controlled.
Should I Plead Guilty or Fight My Charges?
That depends on what happened to you, the evidence against you, and you as a person.
You should not plead guilty without first consulting with an experienced criminal defense attorney. We offer a free criminal case evaluation and legal consultation to help you determine what your options are, what possible defenses there might be, and exactly what we could do to help you if you choose to hire us.
In many cases, fighting the charges is the way to get the best possible result. Even if we don’t end up taking it all the way to a trial, it makes sense to prepare for a trial, while keeping all options open.
And while most criminal trial attorneys love to fight in court in a trial, we know that sometimes it is in the best interests of the client to work out a deal that he or she can live with.
That makes sense for many people. If you just want to get past this charge, and move on with your life, we will work tirelessly to make that happen for you. Because, even if you feel you are guilty, and made a mistake, you deserve fair treatment, and a second chance.
And even a minor misdemeanor charge can have serious consequences, and impact on your life…
