Criminal Defense


Our state and federal criminal laws have become increasingly unforgiving. The pressure placed on the government to arrest and convict offenders is high, and this pressure can sometimes chip away at the fundamental foundation of our criminal justice system: The presumption of innocence and proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The Augusta GA based criminal defense attorneys at The Nelson Law Group aggressively work to protect your reputation and possibly prevent arrest and conviction. If you have been accused of or are under investigation for a crime, DO NOT DELAY consulting a criminal defense attorney at The Nelson Law Group.


Being charged with a criminal offense can be extremely stressful and can impact you in every element of your and your family’s life. When the weight of the legal system is bearing down on you and those you love, the attorneys at The Nelson Law Group are advocates and counselors committed to treating our clients with professionalism, courtesy and compassion. The best criminal defense attorney is the one who is there to handle all aspects of your case every step of the way. He or she will be completely prepared for all stages of your case and will have the skill, knowledge and tenacity to challenge the prosecution to achieve the best possible outcome in your case. Without an experienced and committed criminal defense attorney by your side, your rights can easily be overlooked. Without a thorough defense strategy, you could become just another statistic. We will leave no stone unturned to ensure that your constitutional rights are protected.


Your expert legal team reviews every detail of your arrest and prepares your defense:

  • Analyze police reports and evidence looking for weaknesses in the prosecution’s case
  • Interview prosecution and client witnesses, including the arresting officer
  • Review your, your co-defendants’ and any other relevant person’s entire criminal history to determine impact on current case
  • Thoroughly research on all legal and evidentiary issues involved in case
  • Conduct expert review of your arrest video, if any
  • Gather a team of specialists and expert witnesses, if any

Our attorneys are criminal defense trial specialists, and have years of combined experience defending clients throughout Georgia against the full range of criminal charges. In every case we handle, we ensure every avenue of preparation and analysis is undertaken to protect your rights and guarantee the best chance for the best possible outcome in your case. Often, as a result of this preparation, your matters can be resolved without the need for trial.

We use our expertise to work diligently on your behalf to ensure that criminal conviction does not tarnish your future where possible.


We put a premium on the accessibility of our criminal defense attorneys and support staff.

We are committed to providing you with support every step of the way and will ensure that all of your phone calls, emails, and letters are returned in a timely manner.
