Marietta Criminal Defense AttorneyOver 25 Years of Experience Defending the Rights of the Accused

Marietta Criminal Defense Attorney

Welcome to The Mazloom Law Firm, L.L.C., criminal defense attorneys in Marietta, Georgia, where your freedom and reputation are our foremost concerns. I’m Mazi Mazloom, the firm’s founding attorney, dedicated to defending individuals facing criminal charges in Cobb County, Fulton County, and Paulding County, Georgia. With an unwavering commitment to justice, I provide aggressive legal representation across a broad spectrum of criminal cases, from juvenile offenses to traffic violations to felony and misdemeanor charges throughout the Atlanta metro area.

A Proven Track Record Of Criminal Defense Excellence

Our firm is devoted to vigorously fighting your charges, whether it’s striving for an acquittal (not guilty verdict) or reducing the consequences by challenging the prosecution’s case every step of the way. We recognize the profound impact that criminal charges can have on your life, and that’s why we tirelessly advocate for our clients, ensuring they receive fair treatment and the best possible defense.

As an award-winning, top-rated attorney in Georgia DUI & Criminal Defense Law, I bring over two decades of experience to every case I handle. I have received numerous awards and accolades, including recognition from the Cobb County Bar Association, Atlanta Magazine, Cobb Life Magazine, Cobb County Chamber of Commerce, and prestigious legal organizations such as Super Lawyers and the National Trial Lawyers. These honors reflect our commitment to excellence and our dedication to providing top-notch legal representation to our clients.

I understand the gravity of a criminal conviction and its potential impact on every aspect of your life. That’s why I am committed to providing aggressive defense and delivering proven results. Whether you’re facing Felonies in Superior Court, Misdemeanors in State Court, Traffic Violations in Recorders, Municipal or State Court, or Juvenile Cases in Juvenile Court, I am here to ensure you are treated fairly and receive the best possible defense. With admission to all state-level trial courts, including the United States District Court, the Northern District of Georgia, and the Supreme Court of the United States of America, I am prepared to advocate for your rights at every level.

Our Areas Of Practice

We understand the overwhelming nature of facing legal challenges, which is why our commitment lies in providing strategic and dedicated representation tailored to your specific needs. Our practice areas encompass a broad range of criminal charges, each requiring meticulous attention and unwavering advocacy. Whether you’re grappling with assault and battery allegations, theft allegations, DUI charges, or any other criminal offenses, we’re here to stand by your side, safeguard your rights, and pursue the optimal outcome for your case. Below is a comprehensive list of offenses that our law firm represents clients in.

  • All Felony and Misdemeanor Charges – Facing felony or misdemeanor charges can be overwhelming, but I am here to guide you through the legal process. With aggressive representation and strategic advocacy, I fight to protect your rights and achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
  • Assault and Battery – When it comes to assault and battery charges, my approach is thorough and strategic. Under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. § 16-5-20), assault involves attempting to commit a violent injury, while battery involves actual physical contact. I meticulously investigate the circumstances of each case, aiming to uncover evidence supporting self-defense or a lack of intent.
  • Boating Under the Influence (BUI) – Boating under the influence is a serious offense, and I understand the nuances of defending against it. Georgia law (O.C.G.A. § 52-7-12) prohibits operating a vessel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. I scrutinize the evidence against my clients, challenging field sobriety tests and breathalyzer results to build a strong defense.
  • Crimes Against Person(s) – As someone accused of crimes against persons, you need a defense tailored to your specific situation. These offenses can range from assault to homicide and are covered under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. Title 16 Chapter 5). I dig deeply into the details of each case, crafting a defense strategy designed to challenge the prosecution’s evidence and protect your rights.
  • Domestic Violence – Domestic violence charges carry serious consequences, but I am here to advocate for you. Defined under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. § 19-13-1), domestic violence includes acts of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse within intimate relationships or households. I work tirelessly to challenge the evidence against you and ensure that your rights are upheld throughout the legal process.
  • Drug Charges – Facing drug charges can be daunting, but I have the experience to guide you through it. Georgia law (O.C.G.A. Title 16 Chapter 13) addresses various drug-related offenses, including possession, distribution, and trafficking. I explore all possible defenses, from challenging search and seizure tactics to disputing the legality of the substances involved.
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI) – If you’re charged with DUI, you need a solid defense to protect your rights and freedom. Georgia law (O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391) prohibits driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. I analyze every aspect of your case, from the legality of the traffic stop to the accuracy of chemical tests, to build a robust defense strategy.
  • Juvenile Offenses – If you’re a juvenile facing criminal charges, I understand the importance of rehabilitation and second chances. Governed by Georgia law (O.C.G.A. § 15-11-2), juvenile justice proceedings focus on rehabilitation rather than punishment. I work to secure alternative dispositions and address underlying issues to help you move forward positively.
  • Probation Violations – Probation violations can jeopardize your freedom, but I am here to fight for you. Under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. § 42-8-34), violations can result in revocation and imprisonment. I present mitigating factors and advocate for leniency from the court to protect your rights and minimize the consequences you face.
  • Property Crimes – Accusations of property crimes require a strategic defense tailored to your unique circumstances. Whether you’re charged with burglary, theft, or vandalism, I challenge the prosecution’s evidence and protect your rights throughout the legal process.
  • Sexual Offenses – If you’re accused of a sexual offense, you need a defense attorney who will vigorously advocate for your rights. Covered under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. Title 16 Chapter 6), sexual offenses carry severe penalties upon conviction. I scrutinize the evidence against you and challenge the credibility of witnesses to build a strong defense on your behalf.
  • Theft Offenses – Theft charges can have serious consequences, but I am here to provide the defense you need. Whether you’re accused of shoplifting, embezzlement, or robbery, I analyze the evidence against you and pursue strategies to mitigate the charges or secure an acquittal.
  • Traffic Violations – Traffic violations may seem minor, but they can have significant consequences. From speeding tickets to reckless driving charges, I challenge the legality of traffic stops and negotiate with prosecutors to minimize the impact on your driving record and livelihood.

The DUI & Criminal Justice Case Process In Georgia

In Georgia, the criminal justice case process is a structured series of steps that begins with the commission of a crime and ends with the resolution of the case. Understanding this process is crucial for individuals facing criminal charges in Georgia.

  1. Investigation – The criminal justice process typically begins with an investigation by law enforcement authorities. This phase involves gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and identifying suspects. Law enforcement agencies such as the police or sheriff’s departments lead investigations into alleged criminal activities.
  2. Arrest and Booking – If law enforcement officials have probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed and that a specific individual is responsible, they may make an arrest. Following an arrest, the individual is taken into custody and booked into a jail or detention center. During booking, personal information is collected, fingerprints are taken, and a mugshot is captured.
  3. Initial Appearance and Bond Hearing – After being arrested, the individual is brought before a judge for an initial appearance, usually within 48 hours. During this hearing, the judge informs the defendant of the charges against them, advises them of their rights, and determines whether there is probable cause to continue holding them. If the judge finds probable cause, a bond hearing may be held to determine whether the defendant will be released on bail pending trial.
  4. Administrative Driver’s License Hearing (in DUI Cases Only) – In DUI cases in Georgia, individuals facing charges may also have to contend with administrative proceedings related to their driver’s license. Following a DUI arrest, the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) may take administrative action against the individual’s driving privileges. This process involves an administrative driver’s license hearing, where individuals can contest the suspension of their driver’s license and present evidence challenging the basis for the suspension.
  5. Grand Jury or Preliminary Hearing – In felony cases, the next step may involve a grand jury indictment or a preliminary hearing. A grand jury reviews the evidence presented by the prosecution and decides whether to charge the defendant with a crime formally. Alternatively, a preliminary hearing allows a judge to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to proceed to trial.
  6. Arraignment – At the arraignment, the defendant is formally notified of the charges against them and asked to enter a plea, typically “guilty,” “not guilty,” or “no contest.” If the defendant pleads not guilty, the case moves forward to the trial phase.
  7. Pretrial Motions and Discovery – Prior to trial, both the prosecution and the defense may file pretrial motions addressing legal issues or seeking to suppress evidence. Additionally, the discovery process allows both sides to exchange information and evidence relevant to the case.
  8. Trial – If the case proceeds to trial, the prosecution presents its case first, followed by the defense. During the trial, both sides have the opportunity to present evidence, call witnesses, and cross-examine the opposing party’s witnesses. At the conclusion of the trial, the judge or jury deliberates and reaches a verdict.
  9. Sentencing – If the defendant is found guilty or pleads guilty, the case proceeds to the sentencing phase. The judge considers various factors, including the nature of the crime and the defendant’s criminal history, when determining an appropriate sentence. Sentences may include fines, probation, community service, or incarceration.
  10. Appeals – Following a conviction, the defendant may have the right to appeal the verdict or sentence. Appeals are based on legal errors that occurred during the trial or sentencing phase and are heard by higher courts, such as the Georgia Court of Appeals or the Georgia Supreme Court.

Facing criminal charges in Georgia is a multifaceted and complex process that demands vigilance, preparation, and a thorough understanding of legal procedures. From the initial investigation to the final resolution, each step carries profound implications for those involved.

By exercising their rights, seeking legal counsel, and actively participating in their defense, individuals can navigate this process with confidence. With the support of our legal professionals and a commitment to upholding principles of fairness and due process, together, we can work toward a legal system that fosters accountability, integrity, and equitable justice for all.
