I'm proud to be a criminal defense lawyer. When someone is charged with a crime, they have the entire government attempting to deprive them of their life, liberty, and property. The only one that can fight back is the defense attorney.

 

I will always be on your side whether it's during an investigation, a bond hearing, a motion hearing, or trial. I will always give you an objective opinion of where we stand and what our options are.  It is always your decision to go to trial or to take a plea.  Whatever your decision is, I will respect your wishes and fight like hell to get you the best outcome.

Excellent Criminal-Defense Attorney
Dennis is an excellent criminal-defense attorney. He's a military and police veteran who has taken the tenacity and experience that he acquired in those roles and combined them with an unsurpassed knowledge of federal and state criminal law and procedure to be one of the premier criminal-defense attorneys in Georgia. Dennis and I have consulted each other concerning many federal criminal matters over the past several years, and each of those experiences have been not only positive, but outstanding. I highly recommend Dennis to any person who needs an experienced, knowledgeable, and aggressive criminal defense attorney in federal or state court.
