Personal Injury

You’ve been wronged. We fight to make it right.

As an innocent bystander, any injury or impairment you suffer at the hands of another should never be treated as your own personal sacrifice. The pain you feel, the impairments you endure, the distress you suffer, the expenses you incur, the grief that weighs on your heart, and the emotions that prey on your mind are all measurable damages for which you deserve relief.

Whether you were hurt as the result of an accident, error, negligence, or carelessness –inflicted inadvertently or with malicious intent – somebody or something caused your injury and, therefore, bears responsibility.

The remedy is to hold the responsible party to account and to demand restitution.

Wounds are not always visible, and legal liability is not always clear. Too often, injured persons are put at a disadvantage from the start. You may feel you are being marginalized, your pain minimized, or your concerns compromised. The courtroom becomes the only venue for your injury to be acknowledged and your voice to be heard. That’s why it’s so important to be represented by legal counsel experienced in bringing – and winning – personal injury actions.

Criminal Defense

We have the experience that many Criminal Defense attorney’s don’t.

As a former senior district attorney and current trial attorney Tanya Miller has extensive experience on both sides of the courtroom. This experience gives DuBose Miller a competitive edge that clients want — and other attorneys wish they had. We know how judges work, think and operate. And we know exactly how to build a case that defends individuals facing stressful criminal charges.

The first thing to do after being charged with a federal crime is to contact a criminal defense attorney with extensive knowledge of the federal court system. With hands-on experience in federal courts as a former federal prosecutor, as well as years of practice as a criminal defense attorney, DuBose Miller is an experienced trustworthy solution if you have been charged with a federal crime in Atlanta, Georgia or the surrounding area.

Federal prosecutors and law enforcement agencies rigorously pursue litigation. In 1987, the U.S. Congress eliminated the possibility of parole for anyone sentenced for a federal crime after November 1, 1987. Therefore, you will serve the amount of time to which you are sentenced. Moreover, the Federal Sentencing Guidelines are complex and offer little leeway for those convicted of a federal crime.

A case is brought as a federal crime by an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) at the discretion of the AUSA and his or her office. Typically, AUSAs only pursue those matters that are high-profile, extremely complex, or result from an extensive investigation. Due to the discretion and selectivity, the cases that are pursued are subjected to the full resources of the federal government. You are not facing an overworked prosecutor with dozen of cases on his desk, but a focused AUSA who wants a successful outcome to continue to advance his or her career. This is not the type of fight that an attorney who is not confident in the federal forum should undertake.

Property

The grouping of offenses collectively known as property crimes cross several different criminal classifications. They can range from misdemeanors such as petty theft to serious felonies like robbery, extortion, and arson. Experienced Atlanta criminal defense attorneys like DuBose Miller, will be able to help you understand the nature of any charges that you may face, the possible solutions, and what type of defenses are available to you.

 

Felonies

Led by an attorney with experience as a prosecutor, we have a valuable edge and added insight that enables our firm to represent clients successfully, especially when they are faced with serious criminal charges.

 

Misdemeanor

It is easy to dismiss the importance of a misdemeanor charge and not take prompt action to address the situation. You did something irresponsible or foolish, got caught, got charged, and now you just want the whole thing behind you. Despite the fact that the charges could be much more serious, a misdemeanor can alter the path of your life, causing potential employers to pass on your candidacy and future licensing boards to deny a critical license. Experienced criminal defense attorneys in Atlanta like DuBose Miller, especially ones with years learning how to think like a prosecutor, can straighten out the course.

 

Rico

Georgia has its own statutory provision based on the federal act imposing criminal penalties on Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO). Under the provisions of Georgia's RICO statute, a person or group violates the act by using a pattern and practice of racketeering activities to acquire an interest in, maintain or protect an interest in, or control the practices of any business or property.

 

Sex

Sex crimes include many different types of crimes, including crimes against a child and unlawful, nonconsensual sexual acts between adults. These crimes are particularly difficult to defend because of the sensitive nature of the allegations. It requires an experienced defense attorney who knows how to investigate the charges, review the statements of victims and witnesses, analyze the procedures employed by law enforcement personnel, and investigate the backgrounds of everyone involved. If you are charged with a sex crime in Fulton, DeKalb, Clayton, Gwinnett, or Cobb County, or any other county in the Atlanta region in Georgia, contact DuBose Miller as soon as possible so that we can work with you to mount an appropriate defense to these charges.

 

Violent

Depending on the severity of your crime, and your criminal history, you could be facing a harsh sentencing, such as a hefty prison sentence, fines, and a criminal record. A criminal conviction has the potential to ruin your relationships, not to mention your reputation. DuBose Miller will work with you ensuring you’re fairly and professionally represented.

 

White Collar
