Criminal Defense Against State And Federal Charges
Facing criminal charges can be intimidating and lead to severe consequences that can be life-altering. A criminal conviction can result in fines, jail or prison time, the loss of professional licenses and your reputation, and more. At DuBose Miller, our attorneys support clients by using our vast experience to navigate the criminal justice system. We are effective, aggressive criminal defense lawyers that seek to protect the rights and freedom of every client.
Georgia law distinguishes punishment for crimes by degree. The rule applies to misdemeanors and felonies, with felonies being the more serious crimes.
A criminal charge of assault in Georgia can range from a misdemeanor to a serious felony, depending on the degree of the assault and the circumstances involved. If you have been charged with causing physical injury to a person with intent, with or without the use of a weapon or dangerous instrument, you need to speak with an experienced attorney about your rights.
Being accused of domestic violence is personal and painful. Beyond the hurt, you have to deal with the potential loss of a relationship, custody of children, and damage to your reputation. We will aggressively defend your rights and freedom if you’ve been accused of one of these crimes.
Theft crimes range from simple shoplifting to extortion to armed robbery. Some may seem minor, but a conviction for any theft crime is going to carry heavy consequences. If you’ve been arrested for a property crime, you need strong criminal defense services to safeguard your rights.
Drug and Alcohol Offenses
Alcohol and drug charges make up a significant majority of criminal arrests in the Atlanta area. If you’ve been charged with anything from public intoxication to DUI to marijuana possession to federal drug trafficking, our Georgia criminal defense attorneys handle all of these types of cases.
Being arrested for a violent crime is an incredibly serious event that can have short and long-term consequences. A conviction can result in your loss of freedom, fines, and the loss of your right to vote or possess a firearm. We represent clients accused of violent crimes such as assault, reckless endangerment, kidnapping, manslaughter, and murder.
Despite Georgia’s strong tradition of gun ownership, sportsmanship, and firearm advocacy, the state strictly enforces its firearms laws. If you’ve been charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a proper permit, improperly exhibiting a firearm, or using a firearm in the commission of a crime, the penalties can be harsh. Contact our dedicated criminal defense attorneys to discuss your situation.
Juveniles can be charged with a wide range of crimes, similar to adults. But the charges that juveniles face can have a long-term impact since there is no guarantee they can be removed. If your child is facing charges in the juvenile courts, contact our office immediately to discuss your options.
If the courts or your first lawyer didn’t do their job, we can help you appeal a verdict or sentence. Our knowledgeable criminal appeals lawyer will review your situation and outline the best-case strategy.
Federal criminal charges are complex and gravely serious, which is why you need straightforward advice and experienced counsel. If you’ve been charged with a federal crime, our law firm will stand by your side and provide the skilled representation you need. Some of the federal crimes our firm defends on behalf of clients include:
- Drug trafficking
- RICO prosecutions
- Tax fraud and tax evasion
- Immigration crimes
- Wire fraud and mail fraud
- White-collar crimes
- Environmental crimes
- Public corruption, bribery and extortion
- Obstruction of justice and perjury
The Role of a Georgia Criminal Defense Lawyer
As your Georgia defense attorneys, our role is to defend the rights you were guaranteed by this country’s Constitution. As such, we will conduct an independent investigation of your situation when warranted and take the appropriate steps to ensure you are being treated fairly throughout the process.
Every case the government prosecutes has some weaknesses. Our law firm works tirelessly to highlight every violation of your rights and inconsistency in the prosecution’s case to give you an opportunity for the best outcome possible. We can never make any promises about the outcome of your case. But we will aggressively fight to have your charges dropped or reduced to minimize your consequences.
