Protecting Your Rights In Criminal Law Matters
A criminal conviction can have far-reaching implications, including a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. The good news is you have rights, and you are considered innocent until the state proves you to be guilty. Having a skilled lawyer in your corner can help ensure that your rights remain protected while fighting to minimize the potentially harsh consequences of a conviction.
At John Edwards Law Group, LLC, our attorneys have more than 70 years of combined experience, much of which comes from trial work. We understand how to effectively challenge the evidence against you while building a solid defense against criminal charges.
Defending Against A Wide Range Of Crimes
We help people who have been accused of a wide range of crimes in Georgia, including those involving:
DUI charges: Drunk driving or driving under the influence (DUI) charges happen to people of all ages from all walks of life. For many people, this may be their first encounter with the criminal justice system. If you have been charged with DUI, it is important to remember that you are not alone and defenses are available. We will work hard to get your charges dismissed or reduced and help you retain your driving privileges.
Juvenile offenses: When a child runs afoul of the law, it can be tempting as a parent to take a “tough love” approach. However, a criminal record may make it difficult for your child to find employment and may make your child ineligible to receive certain loans, including education loans. We work hard on the behalves of juvenile offenders in an effort to ensure that a youthful mistake does not derail their futures.
White collar criminal charges: There is a misconception that white collar criminal charges such as fraud, embezzlement and racketeering are somehow less serious than other criminal offenses. However, these are still crimes and many times they are charged at the federal level, meaning the full weight of the government’s resources will be directed against you. Our lawyers are experienced trial attorneys who know how to build an effective defense against white collar crime allegations.
Misdemeanor charges: While a misdemeanor charge does not carry the same harsh consequences of a felony criminal charge, the potential punishments are not insignificant. A conviction means the possibility of having to pay a substantial fine and may even result in a lengthy jail term, to say nothing of the resulting criminal record. We can help defend you against all types of misdemeanor charges.
