Don't lose hope when facing assault charges in Georgia

When facing charges revolving around violent crimes, most defendants in Georgia fear the loss of their freedom. As criminal defense attorneys, we understand this fear.

If you ever get pulled over for suspected impairment in Georgia, police will likely ask you to submit to sobriety testing. Officers commonly use breath tests, as they are supposedly quite accurate. What are some things you should know about breath tests before submitting to one?

Georgians should know their rights regarding police searches

Is it worthwhile to fight a traffic violation?

While it is safe to assume that most police officers in Georgia have a good grasp of the law, they are still people, and people can make mistakes. To many, getting a traffic ticket is not that big of a deal. Alleged offenders simply pay the ticket because they think it is their only choice. However, this is not always the case. It is possible to fight traffic violations successfully in some situations.

What happens before a violent crime's trial in Georgia?

Violent crimes are a problem in many parts of Georgia, but the treatment of alleged offenders can be a problem as well. Many people know that most criminal cases never make it to a jury trial, because suspects may be pressured into accepting a plea deal with fines or jail time.
