We are dedicated to fighting for the rights of individuals and business clients in criminal law up to and including trial and appeal.
When you find yourself charged with a crime, you need an attorney with expertise in criminal law and procedure. While you can find talented criminal defense attorneys who have not had prior experience as a prosecutor, prior experience on "the other side" allows a defense attorney to analyze a case from the perspective of your opponent who will be bringing the full resources of the State against you in an effort to deprive you of your liberty. Having served as prosecutors, partners Stewart Bratcher and Luke Martin have the experience necessary to evaluate the evidence against you and determine the potential weaknesses in the prosecutor's case in order to mount a defense on your behalf. They have also developed the relationships and credibility within the legal community to reach the best possible resolution and outcome in your case through pre-trial discussion and negotiation.
No stranger to the courtroom, Stewart and Luke have been lead counsel in 100s of trials ranging in seriousness from traffic violations to malice murder. We are not afraid to fight for you and take your defense to a jury. In addition, we have negotiated plea agreements with other attorneys in hundreds of criminal cases and can reach the best possible resolution in your case should you wish to forego a jury trial. We communicate with our clients about their cases, and make decisions about what is in their best interest.
Our Firm has a particular expertise in cases involving DUI, traffic offenses, and Violations of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act. Having handled hundreds of these cases, we have the ability to find defenses in cases where less experienced attorneys or those without experience as a prosecutor may fail to look. Possible consequences to DUI and drug convictions include prison or jail sentences, probation, and the loss of a drivers license.
