Driver must focus on criminal defense after deadly 110 mph crash

During the holidays, there are unfortunately many car crashes in Georgia that happen as a result of excessive speed.

A recent article describes how some of these accidents could result in the driver finding it necessary to seek an experienced criminal defense attorney in order to ensure the best legal outcome after a serious accident.

Imagine having your house raided by police because the wet tea leaves in your trash looked somewhat like marijuana.

Criminal defense against fingerprint evidence

Most Georgia residents have heard of using fingerprints to catch a criminal. Many people even have their prints on file with law enforcement.

Things to know about stand your ground laws and criminal defense

After Trayvon Martin was shot by an armed community watch volunteer, Stand Your Ground laws were thrust into the national media spotlight. It quickly became apparent that the laws put in place to allow citizens to defend themselves were confusing, and that many people had vastly different interpretations of what was and was not legal. Even if the outcome is not as tragic as the Martin case, many in Georgia who use force to protect themselves should understand the basics of this law and how it may impact criminal defense.

Criminal defense information for organized crime and racketeering

Because businesses in Georgia and other states can greatly impact interstate and even foreign commerce, companies engaged in certain illegal activities could face charges of federal crimes.

Racketeering could lead to serious penalties for those convicted of being involved in the process. Many facing these charges consider seeking an attorney who is well versed in criminal defense.

Along with his selected counsel, the teacher is likely considering his criminal defense options to ensure his rights are protected in upcoming legal proceedings.

Building criminal defense vital for trucker in teen's death

When a commercial truck driver is involved in a crash that causes serious injury or death to others, public opinion and sympathy can often lay on the side of the victims. While there may be cases in which the responsibility for an accident lays solely on the shoulders of the truck driver, many cases may contain mitigating factors that caused the wreck. When faced with seemingly insurmountable charges, many truck drivers in Georgia may decide to call upon an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can determine a strong and effective defense strategy.
