Our Areas of Practice

Facing criminal charges is stressful and overwhelming. This is why I offer strategic and dedicated representation. My practice areas span a wide range of criminal charges, each demanding strong advocacy. Whether you’re dealing with theft, assault, DUI, or any other offenses, I’m here to protect your legal rights and pursue the best possible outcome for your case. Here are the types of offenses I handle:

  • All Felony and Misdemeanor Charges – I guide you through the legal process with aggressive representation and strategic advocacy to protect your rights and achieve the best possible outcome.
  • Assault and Battery – My approach to assault and battery charges is thorough and strategic. Georgia law defines assault under O.C.G.A. § 16-5-20 as attempting to commit a violent injury and battery under O.C.G.A. § 16-5-23.1 as actual physical contact. I meticulously investigate each case to uncover evidence supporting self-defense or lack of intent.
  • Boating Under the Influence (BUI) – BUI is a serious offense under Georgia law, prohibiting operating a vessel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, as outlined in O.C.G.A. § 52-7-12. I scrutinize the evidence against my clients, challenging field sobriety tests and breathalyzer results to build a strong defense.
  • Crimes Against Persons – Defending against accusations of crimes against persons requires a tailored approach. These offenses, ranging from assault to homicide, are defined under various statutes, like O.C.G.A. § 16-5-1 for murder. I thoroughly examine each case to craft a defense strategy aimed at challenging the prosecution’s evidence and protecting your rights.
  • Domestic Violence – Domestic violence charges, defined under O.C.G.A. § 19-13-1 as acts of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse within intimate relationships or households, carry serious consequences. I work tirelessly to challenge the evidence against you and uphold your rights throughout the legal process.
  • Drug Charges – Facing drug charges, which include possession, distribution, and trafficking, defined under O.C.G.A. § 16-13-30, can be daunting. 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, it’s crucial to have a strong defense. Georgia law, under O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391, prohibits driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher for most drivers. I analyze every aspect of your case to build a defense strategy.
  • Juvenile Offenses – Juvenile justice proceedings focus on rehabilitation rather than punishment, as outlined in O.C.G.A. § 15-11-2. I work to secure alternative dispositions and address underlying issues to help juveniles move forward positively.
  • Probation Violations – Probation violations, addressed under O.C.G.A. § 42-8-34, can jeopardize your freedom. I present mitigating factors and advocate for leniency to protect your rights and minimize the consequences.
  • Property Crimes – Charges of burglary, theft, or vandalism, defined under statutes like O.C.G.A. § 16-7-1 for burglary, require a strategic defense tailored to your unique circumstances. I challenge the prosecution’s evidence to protect your rights.
  • Sexual Offenses – Accusations of sexual offenses, which carry severe penalties upon conviction under statutes such as O.C.G.A. § 16-6-1 for rape, require a vigorous defense. I scrutinize the evidence and challenge the credibility of witnesses to build a strong defense.
  • Theft Offenses – Theft charges, defined under O.C.G.A. § 16-8-2, can have serious consequences. I provide the defense you need, analyzing the evidence and pursuing strategies to mitigate the charges or secure an acquittal.
  • Traffic Violations – Traffic violations, from speeding tickets to reckless driving charges under O.C.G.A. § 40-6-390, can have significant consequences. 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 Process in Georgia

The criminal justice process in Georgia involves several key stages. It begins with a law enforcement investigation, during which evidence is collected, witnesses are interviewed, and suspects are identified. If probable cause is established, an arrest is made, and the individual is taken to a jail or detention center for booking. The next step is the initial appearance and bond hearing, where the defendant is informed of the charges, and a judge may decide on bail.

For DUI cases, there is an administrative driver’s license hearing where evidence can be presented to contest the suspension of the individual’s license. In felony cases, either a grand jury evaluates the evidence, or a preliminary hearing is conducted to determine if there is sufficient evidence to proceed to trial. During the arraignment, the defendant is formally charged and asked to enter a plea.

The pretrial phase involves motions and discovery, where both the defense and prosecution file motions and exchange pertinent information and evidence. The trial follows, where both sides present their cases, and a judge or jury delivers a verdict. If the defendant is found guilty, sentencing takes place, taking into account the nature of the offense and the defendant’s criminal history. Finally, the defendant has the right to appeal the verdict or sentence based on any 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 handle this process with confidence and work toward a just resolution.
