Norcross Criminal Defense Attorneys
When facing criminal charges that could leave you facing serious penalties, we provide the trusted, professional legal representation you need.
Facing any type of criminal charges in Georgia is a serious matter. At Zimmerman & Associates , we provide the professional legal representation you need in these situations. As experienced Norcross criminal defense attorneys serving clients throughout Gwinnett County and the Atlanta metropolitan area for more than 40 years, you can trust us to take the actions needed to help you avoid a conviction.
Criminal charges are listed under Title 16 of the Georgia Code and may be classified as either misdemeanor or felony offenses, depending on the situation and the circumstances involved. Georgia takes a tough stance on prosecuting offenders. Even an otherwise minor incident or a case of mistaken identity could leave you facing serious repercussions.
In addition to criminal penalties, a conviction remains a part of your permanent record. This can prevent you from getting a job or an education while hindering your ability to apply for housing, loans, or various social service programs. These charges can also have lasting effects on your relationships with friends and family members, working against you in child custody and other family court matters.
At Zimmerman & Associates, we act as a strong legal ally in these situations. Serving clients throughout the area since 1975, our Norcross criminal defense attorneys have successfully represented clients against the following types of charges:
● Boating Under The Influence (BUI);
● Driving Under The Influence (DUI);
● Vehicular Homicide and Homicide by Vessel;
● White Collar Crimes and Embezzlement.
If you are accused of committing a crime in Norcross, you are likely facing charges in the Gwinnett County Superior Court . While misdemeanor offenses are typically considered less serious and may be heard before a magistrate, you could still be facing heavy fines and a jail sentence of up to a year.
