Have you been accused, arrested, or charged with a crime in or around the greater Macon area? Being in such a situation is understandably stressful and intimidating. Whether you are stopped for a minor traffic offense or arrested for a serious felony, the consequences and the process you must face can be daunting.

We understand how a conviction for any criminal offense can have consequences that can affect you for the rest of your life.
Criminal Charges in Georgia
Criminal charges in Georgia range from traffic violations and minor misdemeanors to serious felonies. Our firm handles all types of criminal defense cases such as:
- Drug crimes
- Federal charges
- White collar crimes
- Domestic violence
- Weapons charges
- Reckless driving
- Violent crimes
- Post conviction and modification actions
Your charges in any criminal case will depend on a variety of factors, including the nature of the offense, whether weapons were used, whether anyone was seriously injured or killed, and your previous criminal history, if any. In the case of misdemeanors, you may be facing up to a year in jail and/or fines, probation, or other penalties, such as community service, house arrest, anger management programs, substance abuse programs, restitution to victims, and more.
In the case of felonies, you may be facing a prison term of more than a year as well as heavy fines. In either case, a conviction will result in a permanent criminal record that can be detrimental to future opportunities. Criminal records are accessible through routine background checks which means they are available to future landlords, employers, and loan agencies. A criminal record can also affect your professional license and make it difficult to obtain a new one in the future. Lastly, if you are not a citizen, you may face immigration consequences for certain criminal convictions.
