Our attorneys are former prosecutors. This means that we know what the other side is thinking about your case. This enables us to better prepare and mount a proper defense for YOU. So, while you can hire any attorney, wouldn’t you rather hire one who knows both sides of prosecution and defense? Wouldn’t you rather hire an attorney who has handled cases in both criminal and civil courts? Our attorneys have experience in multiple areas of Georgia Law. This experience helps us to provide the best comprehensive legal representation for YOUR litigation needs.

At Michael D. Barber & Associates, criminal defense is one of the most important parts of our practice. As former prosecutors, we have experience on both sides of the argument which allows us to better protect your interests.
Although you are not required to have an attorney to represent you in court, the state has an attorney looking out for the state’s interests – the prosecutor. When the prosecutor took his oath of office, that attorney’s job is to “seek the truth” in every case while getting a conviction of the charges against you. Many prosecutors lost sight of their original oath and only seek to obtain a conviction, sometimes for the sake of YOUR innocence.
Consequences for not properly preparing OR defending your case can have long-lasting effects on YOUR life. In criminal drug-related offenses, the laws of the State of Georgia can be overwhelming.
In a simple traffic violation, even if you weren’t arrested your charges can still carry serious repercussions. Convictions for traffic offenses can have high court costs, points added to your driving record, and increases in automobile insurance rates. Most people don’t know that all traffic violations in Georgia are CRIMES that carry jail time.
Criminal defense requires a thorough analysis of the situation. Just because you have been charged with a crime does not mean that you have to admit guilt it means that you need help from an experienced Criminal Defense law firm to properly prepare YOUR defense.
