    Depending on your criminal record, you may be eligible for a pretrial diversion program. However, it must be negotiated with the Solicitor and approved by the court. Yes, you can request to speak to a public defender at your next court date.

    Andre'’s Answer

    A pretrial diversion program will keep you from having a conviction, however it must be offered by the Solicitor and approved by the court. You need an attorney to negotiate on your behalf.

  • What is the rights of someone in a county Jail

    In White county Ga, I have 2 children there for ID They have had bail set at $90.000.00, but have not been in front of a judge to plea. They have been there for 33 days and have not been able to go outside. They lock everyone down every other day ...

    Andre'’s Answer

    The White County Sheriffs office is responsible for the daily operations of that jail. Some measures may have been put in place for security reasons. Any complaints should be addressed to them or the GA Dept. Of Corrections. The public defender should have visited them by now or at least sent a representative.

    My neighbor call the police after an argument and told them I was growing cannabis plants. In the report by the police they admit they entered my locked backyard to see if they could smell cannabis and claimed they did then went to get a search wa...

    Andre'’s Answer

    I agree that Fourth Amendment cases are very fact specific. However, the police do need a warrant signed by a judge to search your property unless they can see the illegal plants in plain view. I strongly believe that I can get those plants suppressed. Call me.

  • Is it possible to file a motion for bond yourself? Is it possible to get a refund from an atty? If so, then how?

    A friend was arrested & charged w/ felony poss. w/ intent of marijuana & controlled substance (fake marijuana) & obstruction- according to my friend, the amount was very small. But, no bond was given at pre-liminary & case was sent to superior cou...

    Andre'’s Answer

    Yes you can file a motion for bond on your own. However, we suggest you hire an attorney to prepare and argue the motion for you because there are certain factors a court considers for release that you may not be aware of.
    Regarding terminating your attorney, you must review the terms in your retainer agreement that you signed when you hired that attorney.
    Feel free to contact us if you need assistance with this matter.
