We represent people accused of crimes: murder, homicide by vehicle, drug trafficking, sex crimes, forgery, or theft. We don’t handle workers’ compensation, divorce, or contract disputes. Our goal is to get your charges dismissed or reduced, to keep you out of prison, and to hear those words “Not Guilty” from a jury as frequently as possible.

Call today for a free copy of my book, Georgia Criminal Law Survival Guide. After all, you don’t want someone who dabbles in criminal law. You want someone who understands it.
