What Should I Expect from a Douglas County Criminal Defense Attorney?

First of all, you should expect a legal professional who has experience handling the charges you're facing. Just as importantly, you should expect an advocate who is familiar with the courts, clerks, and judges who are handling your case. An attorney who knows the personnel of a given court is much more likely to steer your case to a favorable conclusion than an attorney who isn't familiar with the judge or their staff.

You should also expect your lawyer to keep you informed. A criminal defense lawyer's job is to serve as your advocate and representative, but they can't do that effectively if you don't know your options. Our Douglas County criminal defense lawyers ensure our clients know exactly what their options are at a given moment, the risks and benefits of each choice, and what choice will best serve them in a given moment. As experienced attorneys, we'll certainly recommend the choice that best achieves your goal—but at the end of the day, you should feel in control of your case.

Are No-Knock Warrants Legal in Douglas County?

Georgia law allows officers to enter a person's home without consent if they can prove to the judge that someone is likely to destroy evidence, run away, or put officers in danger. However, like much of police policy, no-knock warrants have been abused and overissued in the name of "officer safety." If you were arrested due to a no-knock warrant, speak with our Douglas County criminal defense lawyers as soon as possible. We may be able to question the veracity of the warrant, perhaps invalidating your arrest in the first place.

In general, if you've been arrested by force or surprise, then the police already have an open investigation into your activities. If you suspect that the police are investigating you but haven't arrested you yet, it's time to call a criminal defense attorney in Douglas County as soon as possible.
