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.

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".

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.
