Aggressive Criminal Defense For Serious Offenses

Criminal defense can be a high-risk proposition for people facing serious punishment on felony or misdemeanor charges. At Daniels & Rothman, P.C., we can understand why someone would be happy to take a few months in jail to avoid the risk of years in prison if his or her case went to trial. But we don’t necessarily agree.

We’re trial attorneys. We prefer clients who recognize that the consequences of any criminal conviction go far beyond jail or probation. Our experience and skill with the resolution of contested criminal charges can help you in ways that you wouldn’t think possible.

Fighting Criminal Charges In Georgia

Our criminal defense practice is led by Jeffrey Rothman, a criminal defense attorney with nearly 30 years of legal experience. Mr. Rothman is a true trial lawyer who practices criminal law exclusively. He is one of the only attorneys in the community who focuses his practice on fighting charges – not on pleading out. If your future is on the line, it is critical that you work with an attorney who focuses only on criminal defense matters and who will not back down from a courtroom battle.

Our criminal defense team regularly advocates for individuals throughout Northeast Georgia who have been charged with offenses that include:

  • Drug crimes: We defend clients accused of possession, distribution and manufacturing of controlled substances, addressing charges to minimize potential penalties.
  • Probation violations /criminal warrant applications: We assist clients facing allegations of probation breaches and help in managing issues related to criminal warrants, striving for resolutions that aim to protect their freedom.
  • Student offenses: We represent university students in cases involving academic misconduct, underage drinking and other offenses, working to safeguard their educational opportunities and future careers.
  • Theft crimes: We handle cases ranging from petty theft to grand larceny, focusing on developing defense strategies that aim to reduce or dismiss the charges.
  • Assault crimes: We advocate for individuals charged with assault, focusing on crafting defenses that consider the context and specifics of each incident.
  • Traffic violations: We help clients deal with citations for speeding, DUI and other traffic-related offenses, aiming to prevent points on their license and other driving penalties.

When you work with our law firm, we will concentrate on defeating the government’s case against you – not on bargaining for compromise guilty pleas or counting on the judge to give us a break in sentencing. If you want to fight your charge, we are the firm for you.

If The Government Can’t Prove Its Case, Why Plead Guilty?

Your constitutional presumption of innocence means that you can’t be convicted of any crime unless the government proves its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. Our job is to make sure the prosecution does not meet that burden of proof. We fight to keep evidence out of court to the greatest extent possible and make sure that the jury has plenty of doubt about the part of the case that does survive. By focusing on the evidence instead of the risks, we can make many cases go away entirely.

This approach is effective in DUI defense, state and federal drug crimes and any other serious criminal charge. If you can see the advantages of engaging a lawyer who will build up your defense rather than break down your resistance to a guilty plea, we want to hear from you.
