Free Consultation Initial appointment and lawyer consultation are FREE. For a 2nd opinion review of your cases, our law office requires a case review fee on a criminal case for which another criminal attorney is presently representing you.
Credit Cards Accepted We accept MasterCard, VISA, AMEX, and Discover.
Contingent Fees Civil litigation cases like personal injury lawsuits are handled under contracts for contingent fees. Clients for criminal and DUI cases only pay flat fees, and not hourly. Over many decades of criminal defense, we have learned that this is the best plan for virtually every criminal cases client. The fees are paid in stages, according to how much work on the criminal case is required to win.
Rates, Retainers and Additional Information Not all personal injury lawyer cases will be accepted, but our law firm works with dozens of other personal injury lawyers in Athens, Macon, Savannah, Columbus, Albany, Dalton, Carrollton, Columbus, Thomasville, Valdosta, Douglas, Tifton, Statesboro, Toccoa, Dawsonville, Marietta, Alpharetta, Duluth and other Georgia cities that may be willing to take your injury case, accident case or wrongful death lawsuit. Flat fees on all criminal defense cases, like driving under the influence, with ranges from about $500 on traffic ticket case in the 4 metro Atlanta counties (Gwinnett courts, Cobb County courts, Fulton Courts, Dekalb Courts) like super speeder or a violation of Georgia car seat laws defense to felony fees adjusted to the seriousness of the offense. So, a simple possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, a misdemeanor, costs very little compared to a cannabis case for trafficking weed, with intent to distribute, which are serious felony offenses.
