Best Criminal Defense Attorney Atlanta

Best Criminal Defense Attorney AtlantaThe practice of law is very rewarding. Most of all, is the gratitude of my clients when I am successful and their lives are restored! These are some of my favorite experiences:

I represented a seventeen-year old charged with armed-robbery. He faced a mandatory minimum prison sentence of ten years. I was able to reduce to a lesser charge and he had to do time but for only one year. He was also able to serve under the First Offender Statute (no conviction). this was an individual that had an extensive juvenile record. After my experience with him he remained out of trouble.

One day, I received a call from this client. He thanked me for “saving his life.” He told me that he had completed his GED while he was in prison and that as of his call to me, he was attending college.

An eighteen year-old client of mine had been an “All American” student. She was voted Most Popular and Best Dressed by her classmates. However, she had a problem. The clothes that she wore were stolen from major stores. Her “luck” finally ran out when she was arrested for felony shoplifting. The arrest had a profound effect on her. She felt remorseful and desired to change her life.

I was able to convince the prosecutor to allow her to enter a diversion program which she successfully completed and the charges were dismissed. Today, this young girl is a valued employee at a woman’s fashion store. She keeps in touch and credits me with her turn around.

There are several more cases involving young adults where their lives have changed considerably due to my interventions.

Below are different case with their outcome. I do not add names or case numbers to protect my clients.
