    I handle all kinds of business matters. From drafting new contracts personalized to a business, to enforcing contracts in place, defending businesses against lawsuits, and doing business to business debt collection with contracts around the state.

    10 years

I'm an experienced attorney working in a variety of fields, but with a special focus on criminal defense at the state and federal level, with an emphasis on complex and serious cases. I do federal criminal defense throughout the Southern District of Georgia - Augusta, Savannah, Statesboro, Brunswick, and surrounding areas.  I do all kinds of criminal defense in the Augusta Judicial Circuit, which includes Columbia, Richmond, and Burke Counties.  I've helped people facing a vast array of charges: everything from drug possession and conspiracy to medicaid fraud, rape, child molestation, and murder.  

I take on the difficult and oftentimes ugly cases, and I get excellent results.

I also have a thriving civil litigation practice where I handle a wide variety of matters, including business litigation, regulatory issues, civil rights litigation, venue and jurisdictional fights, construction and zoning law and litigation, contract disputes, business debt collection, corporate embezzlement and fraud allegations and investigations, and fighting for the rights of children with special needs (the last one is a passion of mine, if you need help with this, contact me even if you think you can't afford it). 

I'm an attorney who is not afraid of the courtroom.  I spend time in one just about every day.  I've been described by friends as a "bad news lawyer.": no one calls me when things are going well, people call me when things in their life are very rough: they or a loved on has been arrested, the feds have raided their home and made off with every computer, cell phone and piece of paper they own; or their business is facing a mortal threat from a lawsuit or other legal issue.  

My practice, just like my life, is rooted in my strong Christian faith.  I believe in the dignity of every human being and treat my clients and their families accordingly.  I'm sympathetic and I promise all of my clients this: no matter what the eventual outcome, you will, at least, fully understand and be involved in every aspect of your case, and I am always compassionate towards my clients and their loved ones.

If any of this sounds like something that you're going through, give me a call and let's sit down for a free consultation.

Mrs
Arrested: I felt scared, uncomfortable, embarrassed etc. The first time meeting Mr. Rollins for a consult I was met with a gentle compassion and non judgement - I felt heard (a complete stranger to me) and I hired him immediately. Mr. Rollins remained composed and consistent with unwaivering patience all the way through my legal journey. Thank you, Charles H. Rollins!

Amazing job
I was facing 5 years on a felony charge. Charles worked constantly on this on was able to get charges reduced and eventually removed from my record. His hard work and beleif in me has given me the opportunity to put my life back together. Thank you for all the hard work and dedication.

Great Attorney
I would recommend Charles to anyone. He is very prompt on calling back and very knowledgeable. I wouldn't have gotten my divorce as quick if it weren't for him

Hard Working and Tenacious
He helped me through a really difficult divorce, and did so with patience, kindness and understanding. I hope I never have to go through that again, but, if I had to, I know exactly who I would call, Mr. Rollins.

Helped me with my DUI case
I got charged with a DUI, and Mr. Rollins helped me understand about the charges, and he fought for me. He was really nice, he cared about my case. I got my license back, and then my charge got reduced to reckless. I would definitely call him again if I needed help

I paid 500$ for their service for them to do nothing
I had gotten a speeding ticket around mid 2020. I paid 500+ for their services and court costs. For them to literally just pay off the speeding ticket. I could’ve done that. Instead I’ve hired a useless lawyer who made close to 500$ off of a vulnerable 21 year old. Charles Rollins and his associate Samuel Meller are incompetent and useless. Do not hire them
