Criminal Defense

Criminal DefenseOur criminal defense lawyers represent clients charged with violating criminal offenses in traffic, state, and superior courts throughout the metro Atlanta area- focusing primarily on South Metro Atlanta (including Clayton County, Fayette County, and Henry County).

This top criminal defense team handles cases from the investigation of our client through a dismissal of charges, client plea, or final trial.  We regularly get great outcomes for our clients because we work hard throughout the representation.

We are available to assist clients with misdemeanor and felony cases and we provide client case management in three phases. Phase 1: Pre-Arrest is where we provide protection for clients who are being investigated by law enforcement and/or government agencies. Phase 2: Post-Arrest/Pre-Trial is where we actively investigate our client’s charges, file and argue appropriate procedural motions, and negotiate dismissals and/or reductions in charges.  Phase 3: Trial is where we prepare for trial and represent our client’s interests in a formal trial proceeding, arguing their case before a judge (in a bench trial) or a jury (in a jury trial).

It’s important to have an experienced and courageous attorney on your side when facing criminal charges. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers guarantee that no matter how big or small the case may appear, we prepare and fight for each and every client with the same fervor and tenacity. We thoroughly explore all options before advising our clients on whether or not they should plead or try their case.

During the criminal law consultation, clients discuss their charges with an experienced attorney, discuss potential plans of action in their case, and get a realistic assessment of their options. Read more about our lead criminal defense lawyer,  Candace Alynn Hill Duvernay
