The Comprehensive Legal Aid You Need. Every Step of the Way

During and after an arraignment, there are many decisions to be made, and it is best to speak with a qualified criminal defense attorney. In many circumstances, your attorney may be able to work out a plea bargain – a compromise. This involves someone pleading guilty to a lesser crime in pursuit of a lesser sentence. If a guilty plea is not entered, then the case may go to trial; although plea bargains may be negotiated and entered until the very end of a trial. During this process, you want a criminal defense lawyer who will formulate a defense, collect evidence, hire investigators, get expert witnesses, and prepare for testimony, examination, or questioning. Akin & Tate works to get cases dismissed or arrange plea bargains to lessen or eliminate one’s sentence and criminal record, always offering strong representation at trial.

A criminal charge does not have to mean a criminal conviction. Call Akin & Tate criminal defense attorneys today at 770-382-0780, and take back control of your future.
