Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense Attorney in DeKalb County - Tucker, Georgia

Being charged with any criminal offense, whether it is an infraction, misdemeanor or felony, is a life-altering experience. The consequences of a conviction range from a fine up to spending years in prison. Just being charged damages your reputation and possibly puts your job in jeopardy. If you are a divorced or divorcing parent, child custody and visitation may become issues.

If convicted, you may be facing hefty fines as well as the loss of your freedom. A misdemeanor conviction can result in up to one year in county jail. A felony conviction can carry a sentence of years in prison, possibly for the rest of your life. With so much at stake, you need the assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable defense attorney.

We thoroughly review the facts of your case, interview witnesses, hire experts when necessary and put the prosecution’s case through vigorous testing.
