If you've been accused of a crime in Cobb County or surrounding areas, you could face a number of severe penalties if you are later convicted. In fact, even being accused of a crime can make a drastically negative impact on your life. You may spend a couple nights in jail, have your license revoked, or face social stigma.

If you've been arrested, the first thing you should do is call a skilled Cobb County criminal defense attorney. With my extensive experience on both sides of the criminal justice system, I know exactly what it takes to undermine the prosecution’s case against you.

When the prosecution sees that you have competent and aggressive representation, they may be more willing to reduce or drop the charges against you. I firmly believe that my clients deserve quality representation no matter who they are, which is why I offer affordable payment plans to help accommodate virtually every budget.
