Defending You Against Charges And Accusations
Being accused of a crime can have a devastating impact on your life. Your reputation, employment, freedom and future are at stake. The next steps you take are crucial to your defense. You don’t want to try to navigate complicated court processes alone.
The attorneys at Cook & Tolley, LLP, have the knowledge, experience and skill to guide you. We will create a personalized defense strategy in order to seek the best possible outcome and lessen the impact your current situation has on your future.
Fighting In State And Federal Court
From the moment the government or police first suspect that you have broken a law, your rights become very important. From that moment on, it is important that you obtain the best and most aggressive legal representation available. You need a lawyer who has experience guiding clients through a criminal accusation; one who gets police, prosecutors, judges and juries to listen when he or she speaks; one who cannot be pushed around.
We can help you learn and use your rights. We can scrutinize the details of your case to make sure that the U.S. government or state of Georgia have acted appropriately under the Constitution and laws that protect you.
We have spent years establishing and maintaining our reputation. That consistency means that when we speak, police, prosecutors, judges and juries know they can believe what we say. We are experienced, and we are respected.
The government has a lot of resources at its disposal – investigators, prosecutors, police and warrants. Those resources can be very intimidating when you are accused of a crime, but we are used to dealing with them. We are not intimidated. We are tough.
At Cook & Tolley, LLP, we can handle the most complex to the most straight-forward criminal cases. We represent clients on a variety of accusations, including:
- State courts: We will scrutinize the details of your case to make sure the state of Georgia has acted appropriately. We will defend you against charges in Georgia courts.
- Federal courts: Federal white collar crimes require swift action and attention to detail. Our attorneys are equipped to defend you against a white collar crime accusation in federal court.
We assist individuals with a wide range of charges including DUI charges, drug charges and violent crimes charges. No two criminal cases are identical, and sometimes, small details can make a big difference in the outcome of the case. Our lawyers apply the most thorough review of facts and the applicable law to ensure that a criminal defendant’s rights are protected. It is our paramount goal to protect the interests of our clients.
Of course, in some cases, the battle is not over guilt or innocence, but over what is the appropriate consequence. Through the past several decades, our firm has become known to many prosecutors’ offices. We often are able to reason with prosecutors and judges to make sure that our clients reach resolutions that are just and reasonable under the circumstances.
