Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What Should I Do if I’ve Been Charged with Homicide?

A: Anyone facing criminal charges may feel frightened and upset. However, being calm and polite when interacting with law enforcement officials is critical. You should also remember that you are not required to answer any questions. Your priority should be to contact a trusted criminal defense attorney who can guide you through the complex legal proceedings and ensure your rights are respected. Your lawyer can help determine what defense is appropriate in your case, including self-defense, based on Georgia’s stand-your-ground laws.

Q: How Can a Lawyer Help Me Avoid Criminal Tax Convictions?

A: Many people mistakenly think they have committed a tax crime when they merely made a mistake on their tax returns. However, if you have been charged with tax fraud or tax evasion, you should take these charges seriously. You may face audits and investigations from federal agents that can be frightening. Our legal team has defeated the IRS and several government agencies in many lawsuits over the years. We have what it takes to help you avoid a conviction and will help you get a favorable outcome in your case.

Q: What Are the Penalties for White Collar Crimes in Georgia?

A: White-collar crimes may not be violent, but they still harm others because they rob them of their property or funds. Individuals charged with a white-collar crime should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately to avoid the harsh punishments that could come with a conviction. For example, a guilty verdict can land you in prison for years and leave you with thousands of dollars in fines. A company convicted of a crime may have even larger fines and be left with a ruined reputation. Call our law firm immediately to learn more about how we can help.

Q: What Is the Difference Between Drug Possession and Trafficking?

A: Individuals who are caught with illicit drugs or medications without a prescription may face drug possession charges. The penalties for simple possession vary depending on the nature of the drug. Fighting a possession charge may include proving the drugs weren’t yours or that you were merely holding them to dispose of them. Trafficking charges can be far more serious because they indicate that you were selling or distributing drugs. Penalties may include years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

Q: Why Should I Hire a Lawyer if I’m Facing Federal Criminal Charges?

A: Federal criminal charges are severe because they involve the federal government. These charges usually occur because the crime crossed state lines or occurred on state property, such as a state park. Federal agents can be intimidating and may lead you to believe there isn’t any hope when fighting the charges. However, our team of attorneys has vast experience helping clients overcome federal charges. Call to see how we can assist you in avoiding a federal crime conviction.

Q: What Should I Do if I’ve Been Arrested for DUI?

A: Many people wonder how to react when a police officer arrests them for DUI. Knowledge regarding a few Georgia laws can help at this critical time. First, you do not have to submit to a field sobriety test. However, you are legally required to comply with the breathalyzer test. You are also not required to answer the law enforcement officer’s questions and may, instead, invoke your right to remain silent. You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to avoid the stiff penalties of a DUI.

Q: How Do Atlanta’s Self-Defense Laws Affect My Homicide Charges?

A: Georgia’s self-defense laws include the stand-your-ground law and the Castle Doctrine. These rules go hand in hand as they protect individuals who are fending off an attack. With Georgia’s self-defense laws, attack victims are not required to retreat but may use deadly force if necessary. Your attorney can help gather evidence to prove that you are not guilty of homicide but were merely acting in self-defense or defense of another person.

Q: What Defenses Can I Use to Minimize My Embezzlement Charges?

A: Embezzlement refers to illegally taking someone else’s funds or property over which you had special privileges but were not permitted to use for personal ventures. Embezzlement is similar to theft but occurs when a person in a position of power steals from those to whom they owe a fiduciary duty. Some defenses may help you avoid an embezzlement conviction. For example, you and your attorney may be able to prove that you were acting under duress or that you did not intend to use the funds for personal reasons.

Q: Should I Talk to the Police?

A: You should not talk to the police without legal representation under any circumstance. Anything you say can be used against you in court, and even innocent statements can be misconstrued or used out of context. If approached by the police, remain polite and respectful but firmly decline to answer any questions. Do not be swayed by any tactics or promises the police may use to get you to talk. Contact our firm immediately so we can provide the necessary legal advice and ensure your rights are fully protected. Our experienced attorneys will guide you through the process and handle all communications with law enforcement on your behalf.

Q: What If the FBI Is at My Door?

A: If the FBI is at your door, it's crucial to remain calm and not panic. Do not consent to a search or answer any questions without your attorney present. Politely ask to see their identification and inquire about the purpose of their visit. If they have a warrant, ask to see it, but do not resist. If they do not have a warrant, you are not obligated to let them into your home. Regardless of the situation, do not discuss anything or provide any information. Contact our firm immediately for legal assistance. The FBI will not have your best interests in mind, so it's important to remain quiet and seek legal help as soon as possible to address your concerns.
