Practice Areas

Criminal Defense

We handle a wide array of criminal offenses, including but not limited to shoplifting, burglary, aggravated assault, armed robbery and forgery. We are concerned with protecting your constitutional rights and have the tenacity to help secure the best outcomes possible.

Traffic / DUI Cases

Representation on traffic violations may be critical if you are facing a traffic violation such as DUI, “hit and run”, driving with a suspended/revoked license or no proof of insurance. Cases involving multiple traffic citations are typically more complex and require.

Divorce, Child Support & Custody

From the management of a complex marital property dispute to an emotionally-charged child custody battle, issues involving family disputes, such as child support, divorce and separation agreements are almost always stressful. Secure a divorce attorney who understands the legal process.

Drug Crimes

Sale of controlled substance, possession, trafficking, and conspiracy to violate Georgia’s Controlled Substance Act are major charges with stiff penalties, especially if you are a recidivist.  We carefully identify and discuss the issues related to your specific needs and criminal history, which are significant issues when facing a drug charge.

Probation & Petitions For Bond

Violation of probation is one of the most common reasons for re-arrest once convicted. As a probationer, you want an attorney who understands the in’s & out’s of probation violations, and who will consider immediately filing petition for bond or meet to discuss the alleged conditions violated and probability of success at the revocation hearing.

Juvenile Delinquency & Deprivation

We are passionate about defending and helping juveniles. An adjudication of delinquency may result from disrupting public schools or fighting or a more serious offense, such as a designated felony, which carries a maximum of 5 years. Representation includes deprivations, petition for termination of parental rights and truancy.

What is the difference between contested…

An uncontested divorce is when both parties agree on “all” terms of the dissolution of the marriage. This means that there is no dispute as to “any” portion of the divorce, including child support, alimony, and/or custody if any of these issues are applicable. A contested divorce exists when there is a dispute to any issue outlined in the complaint for divorce and/or settlement agreement.

What is the difference in the recidivist statute…

Under O.C.G.A. 17-10-70(a), a defendant shall be sentenced to the longest possible sentence but said sentence may be probated or suspended based on the discretion of the court. By contrast, under 17-10-70(c), a defendant who has committed three (3) felonies and subsequently commits a fourth (4), shall serve the maximum possible sentence and shall not be eligible for parole until the maximum sentence has been served.
