Seasoned Legal Defense Against Criminal Charges

Have you recently been arrested for a criminal offense or are you presently under investigation? If so, then you will need a high quality Johns Creek criminal defense attorney from Zeliff | Watson. At our firm, our primary goal is to help our clients obtain the most favorable case results possible. Whether your particular case will be better served by a plea bargain, or if we can file a motion for a dismissal, either way we will need to closely investigate the details of your case so we can tailor a defense strategy on your behalf. When you are running the risk of going to jail or prison, the attorney you hire can make all the difference in the final outcome of your case.

The course of your case will depend on a variety of factors such as how evidence was collected, the merit of any eyewitness testimony, and your criminal record. However, if you want to have the greatest opportunity to get your charges dropped, it will take an investigative and tenacious lawyer to search for any flaws in the prosecution's case, and this is where we come in. We pride ourselves on our relentless dedication, and this very dedication has earned us a high regard in the legal community. Attorney Zeliff has been named "Super Lawyer" in 2007 and 2009, and has been voted a "Rising Star" by the Georgia Criminal Defense Bar.

Peter is a great lawyer. I had a DUI case that’s been in the system probably ongoing about 4 yrs now and we ended up going to trail. Peter basically let the prosecutor have it! We easily won the case! I would recommend Peter to anyone. He is extremely knowledgeable when dealing with the Justice System. My thanks goes to you Peter! - Anonymous
