We believe that when cops and their like are behaving, their behavior is always at the direction of their superiors or at least through their superior’s tacit consent. Occasionally their behavior is criminal. Occasionally their behavior results in you being charged with a crime or ordinance violation. Always their interaction with people when they interact with the public is disruptive to the daily individual who has had to indulge their whims. Whether you are rightly or wrongly accused, we want to represent you. Even in instances where our clients have correctly been charged with such offenses, we’ve been able to have a positive impact through our involvement as measured when comparing their outcome to those not represented by us. In other words, we deliver value to our clients even when they are guilty, but our intent is always to get them off, even when they are guilty.
In Georgia and the United States there are still laws on the books that have their origin in disadvantaging certain people despite the many attempts to evolve from those times. Although our legal systems in the United States mostly all agree that the various prosecutorial offices represent you the accused person just as much as the government or another citizen deemed a victim, prosecutors rarely act like it, choosing an us versus you mentality. The framers of the United States Constitution saw this coming even before they freed slaves from lawful bondage to a master, or gave women the right to vote. The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees you the right to an attorney, because the drafters of the Constitution knew, like they knew a number of other things, that you would need it. What those framers did not know however is that there would be good lawyers, and better lawyers. It is my mission, as it has been since I was admitted to the practice of law, to be the very best at what I do, and what I do is represent you.
