About Me

I strongly believe that every citizen is entitled to the protection of their Constitutional rights. 


 


As a soldier I swore an oath to uphold and defend those rights, and I took another oath to do the same when I became an attorney. 


 


Every person accused of a crime deserves to have those Constitutional rights protected and defended.  This is my personal belief, and it is reflected in my calling to practice as a criminal defense attorney.


 


My practice has taken me all over the state of Georgia, and I have represented clients from Acworth to Zebulon, from Appling County to Walton County.  I’ve handled cases spanning the entire criminal offense spectrum, from simple traffic tickets to homicides, along with both bench trials and jury trials.


 


If you want someone dedicated to the zealous defense of your rights do not hesitate to contact me.


 


 


Shawn C. Bugbee, Esq.
