If you are facing felony charges, your choice of lawyers can be a life changing experience. Felony convictions can mean prison time or a criminal history that restricts your life. Who you hire is going to be the most important choice you make in the process.
We have experience fighting for clients in all of the most serious types of felonies which include:
A sex crime is a criminal offense of a sexual nature. This can include, but is not limited to, child molestation, possession and distribution of child pornography, lewd acts with a child, rape, sexual battery, lewd conduct, indecent exposure, possession and distribution of obscene material, prostitution, solicitation of prostitution, pandering, and pimping. Sex crimes carry serious, life-long consequences.
You may think that a charge of aggravated assault implies that a weapon was used in an assault, but this is not necessarily the case. The intent of the person making the assault can increase a simple assault charge to a charge of aggravated assault. You may also be charged with aggravated assault if you assault a police officer, firefighter, school teacher, or members of a certain protected class (which may also result in the charge of aggravated assault as a hate crime).
Crimes of violence such as murder, manslaughter or armed robbery carry serious penalties in Georgia. Georgia law mandates you have to spend a minimum amount of time in prison if you are convicted of one of these crimes. The Judge cannot go any lower. Fighting the charges is essential to minimize the consequences.
If you are being charged with one of these serious felony charges in the state of Georgia, hiring an attorney who has the experience and knowledge of criminal law, could determine whether you are convicted and whether you will spend time in jail or have a criminal record.
