Georgia Attorney Practice Areas
Any time you are faced with possible jail time, you have a right to an attorney. The fact that you have been arrested does not mean that there was sufficient probable cause justifying the arrest or that there is sufficient evidence for a conviction. In fact, an arrest is NOT a conviction, and the State of Georgia must prove all elements of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
Know your rights. Don’t be intimidated.
Call us. As attorneys, we handle both misdemeanors (crimes for which you could serve up to one year in jail) and felonies (for which you could serve more than one year in jail).
We have decades of experience handling a wide range of criminal cases. And we have the expertise to handle your case, whether you’re charged with a minor speeding violation or need representation for more serious issues, such as
- DUI defense
- Drug charges
- DUI license suspension
- Criminal appeals
- Speeding tickets and other driving violations
- Serious injury by vehicle
- Vehicular homicide
- Violent crimes, such as (aggravated) battery, assault, or kidnapping
- Property crimes, such as theft or burglary
- Sexual offenses, such as rape and (aggravated) child molestation
- Homicide, including murder and manslaughter
Whatever you do, NEVER go to court to face charges on your own. Whether you call McFarland & McFarland or choose another law firm, be sure to have a qualified attorney experienced in Georgia law before you go to court.
Civil law deals with disputes between individuals or companies, usually over money, and does not generally carry the possibility of jail time (unless one party violates a court order).
There are no more debtor’s prisons as there were in England prior to the founding of America. However, civil courts are designed to help people be made whole, usually through an award of money from one party to another.
Civil cases involve two parties—a plaintiff (the person who believes he or she was treated wrongly and seeks a solution in court) and a defendant (the person who is being sued in court).
We are experienced attorneys who handle civil cases in many areas including:
Not satisfied with the decision handed down in your case? You have a right to an appeal.
