Bail & Bond Matters
When an individual is arrested for a crime, they are held in jail until their bail is posted. This amount can range from thousands of dollars to millions of dollars, a sum most families are unable to pay on behalf of a loved one. By posting a bond, you could pay 10% of the bail with the help of a bail bond agency.
If you were arrested for a drug offense, you could be charged with a felony or a misdemeanor. In order to avoid a serious conviction, it is in your best interests to contact a member of our legal team.

The most serious category of crime is a felony offense. The penalties for felony crimes include heavy fines and time in state prison. A felony holds the potential for at least one year in prison plus other fines. You need a solid defense when facing felony charges.
If your son or daughter is facing criminal charges, we understand that you would do anything to protect their future. Not only would it be a permanent mark on their criminal record, but it could limit where they can work and go to school.

Were you accused of larceny, robbery, burglary, or another theft crime in Georgia? Theft is taking a belonging from another person without their permission with no intent on returning the item. Theft can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the amount stolen.
