If you have been arrested or questioned in the investigation of a murder, rape, armed robbery or any other violent crime, you need an attorney immediately. Just being accused of any of these crimes could have a devastating impact on your life; a conviction could potentially lead to permanent incarceration or even the death penalty. If you have knowledge that the police are investigating you for a serious violent crime or murder, you need to seek out the legal advice of a qualified criminal defense attorney now.
Georgia law enforcement officers and prosecutors arrest and indict suspected murderers or violent crime suspects based on probable cause—a likelihood that the subject committed the crime. However, the Georgia courts and juries are held to a much higher standard of proof for conviction. The law entitles the accused to legal representation, and an experienced lawyer can make sure that you are treated fairly by the Georgia criminal justice system.
Miles Patterson Hansford Tallant, LLC represent Atlanta area men, women and juveniles who have been accused of murder, manslaughter, robbery, armed robbery, rape, assault, battery, battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and other violent crimes. If you are at any stage of a criminal investigation or a criminal prosecution for any of these crimes, and you don’t have a lawyer or are unhappy with the services of the attorney that you’ve hired, you need to contact an experienced, professional criminal defense lawyer immediately.
A defense attorney from the law offices of Miles Patterson Hansford Tallant, LLC, will examine all aspects of the criminal case against you: the nature of the charges, the reason that the police suspect you of a murder or violent crime, and the probable cause that led the police to arrest you. They will then develop a legal strategy with the goal of having the charges dismissed, reducing the charges against you, negotiating a minimal plea bargain, or reducing sentencing.
The State of Georgia takes the prosecution of murder and violent crimes very seriously. However, that doesn’t mean that the case against you is necessarily a valid one. Law enforcement officers frequently make mistakes both in the findings of their investigations and the processes from which they obtain evidence and confessions. Your lawyer should examine not only your account of events but all of the physical evidence and eyewitness testimony that’s been collected against you.
