Criminal Defense Lawyers in Decatur, GA

Law firm protecting the rights and freedom of those accused of crimes in Georgia

A felony conviction can carry a lifetime of adverse consequences.  A conviction affects your freedom, your reputation, and your relationships with others, both professional and personal.  Your ability to find work and housing can be negatively impacted when the forms you are required to complete contain the question, Have you ever been convicted of a felony?

Felonies are the highest level of crimes in Georgia and are defined as those crimes punishable with more than one year in prison.  Misdemeanors are lesser crimes, which carry a sentence of up to one year in a county jail.

If you have been arrested or are under investigation for a felony offense in Georgia, you need a skilled criminal defense attorney to protect your rights and freedom.
