Being charged with a crime is one of the most unsettling events anyone can face. Not only can it be frightening, the accompanying fines, jail time and criminal record can conspire to limit opportunities in the future.
Because the stakes are high, it is important to find an attorney who can guide you through the criminal justice system. At Nation, Moore & Associates, we help our clients limit the negative consequences of their criminal arrests. Our attorneys have practiced in the community for a long time, and we know how to get results.
We can help you if you are facing charges involving:
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Traffic violations, including driving with a suspended driver's license
- Drug charges, involving possession, distribution or sale
- Assault and battery
- Burglary, theft, robbery and shoplifting
- Weapons and firearms charges
- Family violence and domestic violence
- Juvenile crimes
- Sexual assault charges
Our lawyers take a proactive approach to criminal defense matters. We discuss cases with prosecutors early in the process with the goal of minimizing charges before they are filed. We also work within the court process to have charges dismissed or our clients acquitted. We will represent you from your arrest to your bond hearing to trial.
If your charges are dismissed, we can seek an expungement or restriction of your criminal arrest record. This can keep potentially damaging information about you hidden from current and potential employers as well as college admissions counselors and others with a say in your future.
Finally, we negotiate zealously to mitigate any penalties that might arise if you enter a guilty plea or are convicted. Our services can also be of help to immigrant clients who face detention or deportation as a result of an arrest or conviction.
In all cases, we keep our clients informed at all stages of the legal process, and we return all email and telephone inquiries promptly. Call 770-922-1818 or email us to schedule a free initial consultation for criminal defense.
