We handle a wide array of criminal offenses, including but not limited to shoplifting, burglary, aggravated assault, armed robbery and forgery.

Honest and hard-fought representation are rudiments of our criminal defense. We “fight” for all of your rights.
Sale of controlled substance, possession, trafficking, and conspiracy to violate Georgia’s Controlled Substance Act are major charges with stiff penalties, especially if you are a recidivist. Even a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge in Georgia can suspend your driver’s license, if you are convicted. We carefully identify and discuss the issues related to your specific needs and criminal history, which are significant issues when a person is facing a drug charge.
Representation on traffic violations may be critical if you are facing a traffic violation such as DUI, “hit and run”, driving with a suspended/revoked license or no proof of insurance. Cases involving multiple traffic citations are typically more complex and require aggressive representation to challenge the charges. Driving is a privilege, yet you have rights under the law.
Violation of probation is one of the most common reasons for re-arrest once convicted. As a probationer, you want a savvy attorney who understands the in’s & out’s of probation violations, and who will consider immediately filing petitition for bond or we will meet with you to discuss the alleged conditions violated and probability of success at the revocation hearing.
From the management of a complex marital property dispute to an emotionally-charged child custody battle, domestic issues involving family disputes, such as child support, divorce and separation agreements are almost always stressful. Secure a divorce attorney who understands the legal process and who also understands you.
The Burgess Law Group is passionate about defending and helping juveniles. An adjudication of delinquency may result from disrupting public schools or fighting or a more serious offense, such as a designated felony, which carries a maximum of 5 years. Representation includes deprivations, petition for termination of parental rights and truancy. We fight endlessly for justice for juveniles.
