Reasons to Hire Our Firm

Are you presently searching for an aggressive attorney to defend you against criminal charges in Cumming or Forsyth County? When you come to Zeliff | Watson, you have found exactly what you are looking for. Our criminal lawyers are 100% dedicated to the field of criminal defense and upholding the rights of the criminally accused throughout every phase of the criminal process.

Whether you're facing charges for DUI, a drug crime, or a more serious crime such as murder, you're going to want the strongest defense team you can find because Georgia is known for having harsh penalties, especially when it comes to drug-related charges.

In the face of incarceration, hefty fines, driver's license suspension, community service, victim restitution, mandatory sex offender registration, the possible loss of your parental rights and a criminal conviction, you cannot afford to trust your freedom and your future to a public defender who is fresh out of law school or too overburdened to provide you with an adequate defense.

  • Attorney Peter Zeliff is included in Georgia's selection of Rising Starsâ„ , which is limited to no more than 2.5% of Georgia's lawyers.
