Facing Criminal Charges in Georgia? What to do.

By: Will Dasher

The discovery that you have been charged with a crime can be a shocking and frightening event in your or a loved one’s life. Respectable people are charged with committing a felony in Georgia every day. While unexpected, it is a situation that demands immediate action and careful attention. 

First, remain calm and recall every detail related to your case. Forgetting even the small details can cause you to later be inconsistent or unclear, which could inadvertently hurt your legal defense. The ability to provide a clear and accurate account of the incident can make you a more active participant in your defense. 

Second, while this may be a difficult time, you are not alone. You should take every possible step to protect your rights and future so you can move forward confidently through this process. The right guidance is critical to getting a clear understanding of the situation and knowing how to proceed. 

Four of the five attorneys at The Nelson Law Group were once Assistant District Attorneys at District Attorney’s Offices in either the Augusta, Columbia, or Toombs Judicial Circuits with one also serving as an Assistant Solicitor General in the State Court of Richmond County Solicitor General’s Office. Two of our attorneys have served as Staff Attorneys for Superior Court Judges in the Augusta, Columbia, or Toombs Judicial Circuits, which gives us unique knowledge of how judges think about criminal cases.
