Criminal Defense Lawyers Serving Georgia

The firm of Zeliff | Watson has been actively assisting clients with their criminal defense matters for over 16 years. We understand that whatever situation you currently find yourself in, you need tough legal representation from a criminal defense attorney who will work tirelessly to find effective means of obtaining a positive outcome for you. During this troubled time, your attorney must be resolute in their actions, not only against the prosecution, but in demanding that your rights are protected against those who intend to violate them.

Whether you have been charged with theft, a sex crime, drug crime, DUI or manslaughter, we are ready to go to work for you. You may have been arrested for assault, battery or domestic violence. No matter the offense, our dedicated lawyers have a vast amount of experience behind them and have proven themselves successful in hundreds of cases. Attorney Zeliff was voted a "Rising Star" by his colleagues in the Georgia criminal defense bar and has twice been named a "Super Lawyer". Attorney Watson has defended close to 300 cases ranging from traffic offenses to murder. Both lawyers are members of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys.

We are proud to serve the residents of:

Criminal Charges & Penalties

There are a wide range of penalties that you could face if found guilty of any criminal offense. Violent crimes as well as white collar crimes are fiercely prosecuted. This means that if your attorney is inexperienced or does not give your case the attention that it truly deserves, you could find yourself in jail, state prison for life, having to pay steep fines, your driver's license could be suspended or revoked, you may have to perform community service or in the worst case, face the death penalty.

We are proud to serve our community by providing aggressive and knowledgeable representation to our fellow citizens.
