Our Areas of Practice

Facing criminal charges can be overwhelming, which is why I offer strategic and dedicated representation. My practice areas encompass all criminal offenses. Whether you’re fighting assault and battery charges, theft allegations, DUI, or any other criminal charge, I am prepared to defend your legal rights and pursue the best possible outcome for your case. Here is a list of the offenses I handle:

All Felony and Misdemeanor Charges – I provide aggressive representation and strategic advocacy throughout the legal process, ensuring your rights are protected and aiming for the best possible outcome.

Assault and Battery – I take a comprehensive and strategic approach to assault and battery cases. Under Georgia law, assault (O.C.G.A. § 16-5-20) involves an attempt to inflict violent injury, while battery (O.C.G.A. § 16-5-23.1) involves actual physical contact. I thoroughly investigate each case to find evidence supporting self-defense or lack of intent.

Boating Under the Influence (BUI) – BUI is a serious offense under Georgia law, which prohibits operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol or drugs (O.C.G.A. § 52-7-12). I carefully examine the evidence against my clients, questioning field sobriety tests and breathalyzer results to create a strong defense.

Crimes Against Persons – Defending against accusations of crimes against persons, ranging from assault to homicide (O.C.G.A. § 16-5-1 for murder), requires a tailored approach. I meticulously review each case to develop a defense strategy that challenges the prosecution’s evidence and safeguards your rights.

Domestic Violence – Domestic violence charges (O.C.G.A. § 19-13-1) encompass acts of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse within intimate relationships or households and carry severe consequences. I work diligently to contest the evidence against you and uphold your rights throughout the legal process.

Drug Charges – Drug charges, including possession, distribution, and trafficking (O.C.G.A. § 16-13-30), can be overwhelming. I explore all possible defenses, from challenging search and seizure methods to questioning the legality of the substances involved.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) – Being charged with DUI, under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391), which prohibits driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher for most drivers, requires a robust defense. I examine every detail of your case to formulate a solid defense strategy.

Juvenile Offenses – Juvenile justice proceedings, which focus on rehabilitation rather than punishment (O.C.G.A. § 15-11-2), need a different approach. I aim to secure alternative resolutions and address underlying issues to help juveniles move forward positively.

Probation Violations – Probation violations (O.C.G.A. § 42-8-34) can threaten your freedom. I present mitigating factors and advocate for leniency to protect your rights and reduce the impact of the violations.

Property Crimes – Defending against burglary, theft, or vandalism charges (O.C.G.A. § 16-7-1 for burglary) requires a strategic and individualized defense. I challenge the prosecution’s evidence to protect your rights effectively.

Sexual Offenses – Accusations of sexual offenses, carrying severe penalties upon conviction (O.C.G.A. § 16-6-1 for rape), require a vigorous defense. I meticulously analyze the evidence and question witness credibility to build a strong defense.

Theft Offenses – Theft charges (O.C.G.A. § 16-8-2) can result in serious consequences. I analyze the evidence thoroughly and pursue strategies to mitigate the charges or achieve an acquittal.

Traffic Violations – Traffic violations, ranging from speeding tickets to reckless driving charges (O.C.G.A. § 40-6-390), can significantly impact your life. I challenge the legality of traffic stops and negotiate with prosecutors to minimize the effect on your driving record and livelihood.

The DUI & Criminal Justice Case Process in Kennesaw

Understanding the criminal justice process in Georgia is very important for defendants. This process involves several stages, starting from the investigation and culminating in the resolution of the case:

  1. Investigation – This stage kicks off with a law enforcement investigation, which includes collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, and identifying suspects.
  2. Arrest and Booking – Once probable cause is determined, an arrest is made, and the individual is taken to a jail or detention center for booking.
  3. Initial Appearance and Bond Hearing – The defendant appears before a judge to be informed of the charges, and a bond hearing may be held to decide bail.
  4. Administrative Driver’s License Hearing (in DUI Cases Only) – In DUI cases, administrative proceedings may be held concerning the individual’s driver’s license, where evidence can be presented to contest the suspension.
  5. Grand Jury or Preliminary Hearing – For felony cases, a grand jury might evaluate the evidence or a preliminary hearing might be conducted to ascertain if there is sufficient evidence to move forward to trial.
  6. Arraignment – The defendant is formally charged and asked to enter a plea.
  7. Pretrial Motions and Discovery – Both the defense and prosecution can file pretrial motions and exchange pertinent information and evidence.
  8. Trial – Both sides present their cases in court, and a judge or jury delivers a verdict.
  9. Sentencing – If the defendant is found guilty, sentencing occurs, considering various factors such as the nature of the offense and the defendant’s criminal history.
  10. Appeals – The defendant has the right to appeal the verdict or sentence based on legal errors that occurred during the trial.

Facing criminal charges in Georgia involves a complex process that demands careful preparation and vigilance. With the assistance of my experienced legal team, you can navigate this process with confidence and work toward a just resolution.
