Working On Your Criminal Case 
 Let's start working together to build a good defense for you. I handle the following cases and many more:

  • DUI
    No matter what criminal charges you may be facing, having an assertive, knowledgeable attorney can mean the difference between a positive and negative outcome in your court case. The possibility of being convicted of a crime in the state of Georgia should be taken very seriously. The impact of a conviction on you and your family are enormous. The police in Georgia have earned a reputation for being very tough and the laws on the books are even tougher.  Remember, the foundation of our criminal justice system was built upon the presumption of innocence. Many people today seem to forget or ignore this important fact. Many believe that if you are arrested and/or charged for any criminal offense, then you are surely guilty of committing that crime. Let’s work together to resolve your criminal case.

  • Were your constitutional rights violated?
  • Was evidence seized?
  • Was an arrest made that violated your 4th amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure?
  • Did the police explain your right to be silent before you were questioned?
  • Was there a proper chain of custody for the evidence seized?

     Fighting a criminal case can be very complicated. I know the court system and know the different personalities of Judges and Prosecutors. My successful representation in Federal, State and Juvenile courts on issues related to embezzlement, fraud, theft, murder, drugs, domestic violence, vehicular manslaughter, sex crimes, weapons and many others. I take my responsibility very seriously, I am available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

     If you have been charged with a crime in Georgia, you have a number of very important rights. How and when you exercise these rights can have serious ramifications in your case and ultimately on the results you are able to achieve. Specific charges and specific facts may also give rise to other rights which you may be able to enforce to your benefit during your case. Only by retaining an experienced criminal defense attorney can you be sure that your rights are protected.

 Wrongful Termination
     Have you recently lost your job in Georgia? If so, you might be wondering whether you have grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit. In Georgia, as in other states, employees work at will. This means an employee can be fired at any time and for any reason, or for no reason at all, as long as the reason for the firing is not illegal.

Discriminatory Firing

     Under federal law, it is illegal for an employer to fire an employee based on a protected characteristic. Federal law prohibits employers from firing employees based on race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, religion, age (if the employee is at least 40), disability, citizenship status, or genetic information. However, only certain employers must comply with these laws. For most types of discrimination, the laws apply to employers with 15 or more employees. However, the prohibition against age discrimination applies to employers with 20 or more employees, and the ban against citizenship status discrimination applies to employers with only four or more employees.

Breach of Contract

     You may not be an at-will employee if you have an employment contract promising you job security. In Georgia, an employment contract may be written, oral, or implied. In the first two types of contracts, your employer makes oral or written promises not to fire you for a certain period of time without good cause. In an implied contract, your employer doesn't make express promises but acts in a way that creates a reasonable expectation that you would continue to be employed. For example, if your employer makes comments about you having a "long future at the company as long as you perform well," that may create an implied contract. If you have an employment contract, and your employer fires you without good cause, you have a legal claim for breach of contract.

Wage and Hour Issues

In Georgia, employees have the right to be paid a minimum wage. Employees are also entitled to overtime pay when they work more than eight hours in a workday or more than 40 hours in a workweek. It's illegal in Georgia for an employer to fire, discipline, or take other negative actions against employees for filing minimum wage or overtime complaints, testifying in proceedings related to minimum wage or overtime violations, or otherwise asserting their rights under these laws. 

Time Off Work

     Federal laws give employees the right to take time off work for certain civic obligations and personal responsibilities. Employers may not discipline or fire workers for exercising these rights. In Georgia, these rights include:
  • Military leave. Under federal law, employees have the right to take up to five years of leave to serve in the military, with the right to be reinstated when they return to work. (This law also prohibits discrimination against employees based on their military service, protects employees from discharge without good cause for up to one year after they return from military duty, and provides other protections.
  • Jury duty. Employees are entitled to take unpaid leave while they serve on a jury, and they may not be penalized in any way for serving.
  • Voting. Employees may take as much paid time off as needed to vote unless they have two consecutive hours off at the beginning or end of their shift while the polls are open.

Family and medical leave

      Although Georgia does not have its own family and medical leave law, Georgia employees are protected by the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). This law requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide eligible employees with up to 12 weeks off, unpaid, every year for their own serious health conditions, to care for a family member with a serious health condition, to care for a new child, or to handle certain practical matters arising out of a family member’s military service. Employees can take up to 26 weeks off in a single year to care for a family member who is seriously injured while serving in the military. Employees on FMLA leave must be reinstated to the same position they previously held once their leave is over.

Other State Claims

     Workers' compensation. Employers in Georgia are prohibited from firing or otherwise discriminating against an employee who has filed a workers' compensation claim or who has received workers' compensation benefits, as long as the employee has acted in good faith.

     Workplace safety. Employers may not fire or discriminate against employees who make complaints about violations of occupational health and safety standards or who participate in legal proceedings regarding such violations. 

What to Do Next

     If you think you were fired illegally, you should talk to me as soon as possible. I can help you sort through the facts and assess the strength of your claims. I can also inform you of other state or local claims that you may have in addition to those listed above. Whether you want to try to get your job back, negotiate a severance package, or sue your employer in court, I can walk you through your options and help you decide on how best to proceed.

Let's work togther for the best interest of your child. 

• Parental Rights
• Custody
• Child Support
• Paternity
• Spousal Support
• Post-Judgment Motions
• Appeals

     I'm here to help with family law issues. It often happens when you least expect it. A divorce or legal separation turns your life upside down. A child custody or child support battle threatens your children’s well-being. Suddenly the familiar life you and your family once knew is filled with turmoil and uncertainty. I’m here to help you get through tough times like these as painlessly and efficiently as possible. And I strive to do so with the best possible outcome for you and your family, both today and in the future. As you face the legal complexities of family law and the emotional upheaval that can come with it, you deserve to have an honest and accessible advocate on your side, someone who is looking out for your best interests. No matter how complicated or heated your case may be, I am ready to pursue as amicable a resolution as possible.

     I help you work through the legal process in the following areas of family law:

  • Divorce Law
  • Motions for Contempt and Enforcement of Existing Judgements
  • Post-Judgement Modification
  • Protection from Abuse and Harassment
  • Parental Rights and Responsibilities
  • Child Support
  • Grandparent Rights
  • Adoption in Georgia
     The emotional and financial issues that arise in Family Law matters can be difficult for all parties involved.

     As your Georgia Family Law Attorney, I will:

  • Provide compassionate, practical representation in Family Law cases
  • Help you identify long-term goals for your unique family situation
  • Ensure that your rights remain protected throughout your case
     With your goals in mind, I will work toward a fair outcome for all parties that still protects you and your children’s best interests. As your lawyer, I will not hesitate to go to trial for you, so that you can keep or receive what you are entitled to.

Divorce Law:

     Separation and divorce from a spouse can be emotionally exhausting, and sometimes it is hard to keep perspective on your rights and responsibilities during your settlement process. As your Georgia divorce attorney, I will always have your best interest in mind.
Through mediation, court filings and court hearings, we will secure your fair share of:

  • Child Support
  • Parental Rights and Responsibilities
  • Spousal Support and Alimony
  • Division of Assets
  • Division of Real Estate

     Motions for Contempt and Enforcement of Existing Settlements

     Georgia divorce law stipulates that the terms of a divorce judgement can be enforced or changed if either party does not satisfy the terms of the arrangement. If you have already been through a divorce and your former spouse is behind on child support, spousal support, or is not following the terms of your settlement, we will:

  • Modify divorce judgment if there has been a change in circumstance
  • Modify child or spousal support if there has been a change in income or circumstances
  • Modify child custody arrangements
  • If any party is not following the terms of an existing judgement, we will file motions for enforcement and motions of contempt in issues of child support, visitation, property and asset division provisions, payment of spousal support and alimony, and issues to deal with real property

     Protection from Abuse and Harassment

     If you or anyone in your family is in need of legal protection from a former partner or spouse, I can help. While you should immediately contact law enforcement if you are in fear of danger or imminent harm, you should also seek a consultation with me in securing protection from abuse or harassment orders. I can seek protection from abuse or harassment orders for you, or on behalf your minor children (including orders against dating partners).

     I will assist you in securing a temporary protection from abuse court order, and prepare your case to fully represent you in a hearing before a judge for a permanent order.

     Alternatively, I can negotiate a binding protection from abuse order with the other party, to avoid the stress and costs of a full testimonial and evidentiary hearing.

     Ultimately, I will ensure that you have a court order in place that is customized to you and your unique situation (e.g. former partner workplace harassment, stalking, threatening behavior, etc.).
