Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another.

Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical abuse (hitting, shoving, burning), sexual abuse (unwanted touching, forced sex), emotional or psychological abuse (insults, threats, isolation from friends or family), and economic abuse (withholding money).

Domestic violence happens in all cultures and affects people of all ages regardless of gender or race. It usually happens behind closed doors but may also occur in public settings such as restaurants or schools.

The abuser often blames the victim for their actions by saying things like: “I wouldn’t hurt you if you weren’t so [annoying/difficult/selfish].” The victim might believe these statements because they think it’s true–the abuser has convinced them that if only they were better-behaved everything would be fine!

Drug and Alcohol Offenses

Drug and alcohol offenses are taken very seriously by the courts. The possible penalties for these types of charges can be severe, resulting in long prison sentences, loss of employment and professional licenses, loss of child custody rights, and other negative consequences. If you are facing a drug or alcohol charge it is critical to have an experienced defense attorney fighting on your side.

Education Law

  • Education Law

Education law is a broad term that encompasses the laws and regulations that govern public and private schools, colleges, and universities. Education law includes the laws that govern school funding, special education, student discipline, classroom technology, teacher certification, school choice, and vouchers. In addition to these topics, there are numerous other areas of education law including athletics (Title IX), religion in schools (church-state separation), and technology issues such as cyberbullying or digital privacy on campus.


Embezzlement is the act of fraudulently obtaining control over another person’s property. Embezzlements are typically prosecuted under state law, though they might also be subject to federal prosecution if they involve a violation of tribal sovereignty or if they affect interstate commerce.

Embezzlement charges can be levied against individuals as well as corporations and other legal entities. In some cases, embezzlement may not be considered a crime at all—it may instead be treated as a civil matter that must be resolved in arbitration rather than in court.

Expungement of Criminal Records

An expungement is a court order that seals your record and makes it unavailable to the public. It also allows you to legally deny any arrests or convictions on employment, housing, and other background questionnaires. If you have been arrested or convicted of a crime, but were later found not guilty or had your case dismissed, there’s a good chance that your record can be expunged.

The process of getting an expungement depends on the type of charge you faced: misdemeanors and minor felonies in Georgia are eligible for automatic expungement after two years; more serious felony charges require an order from the court allowing them to be sealed. After filing a petition with the court (and paying any required fees), your lawyer will ask for copies of all relevant documents related to your arrest and conviction—including police reports, witness statements, fingerprints/DNA test results—and assemble them into one large packet which they will submit along with their petition to the judge handling your case at its next hearing session. The judge will then consider whether granting an order would violate anyone else’s constitutional rights (such as those protected by freedom of speech). If he allows it then he’ll issue an order sealing all records related to whatever occurred during this specific incident – even if only someone arrested but never charged wasn’t involved in some way.

Firearms-related crimes and violence

We are here to help you navigate through this difficult time by offering services that meet your needs and expectations.

Numerous crimes and offenses can occur of firearms use and possession. Some examples include:

  • Homicide – violent deaths caused by another person’s actions; murder, manslaughter, etc.; homicide is considered a felony
  • Assault & Battery – an unlawful physical attack on another person with the intent to inflict injury; assault is considered a misdemeanor while the battery is considered a felony

Grand Jury Representation

Grand juries are groups of citizens who decide whether to bring criminal charges against someone. They can be very important in the criminal justice system because they give prosecutors the power to bring cases before trial. If a prosecutor feels that there is enough evidence to charge someone with a crime and go forward with the case, he or she will ask for permission from a grand jury.

A lawyer can help you prepare for your appearance before a grand jury by:

  • explaining what will happen during the hearing, including who else may be present;
  • advising you on what types of questions investigators might ask; and
  • reviewing any documents or other evidence that is relevant to your case.
