  • Ralph F. Guerra

    Ms. Kert is the go-to lawyer for DUI and Criminal Defense. She has years of experience to handle every aspect of your case and as a former prosecutor she knows the tactics used by the state. She is known for providing her clients with a relentless defense and favorable outcomes. Her superior knowledge of the law allows her to find even the smallest details in a case that can result in dismissals, reduction of charges, and acquittals. If you are looking for a DUI or Criminal Defense attorney in Atlanta, you can find no better. Highly recommended.
