WE BELIEVE THAT A CRIMINAL CHARGE DOESN’T HAVE TO RUIN YOUR LIFE
Accused persons deserve to be valued members of their families and communities — no matter what crime they’ve been charged with.
At the Georgia Public Defender Council, we know how terrifying the criminal justice system can be. That’s why our attorneys strive daily to zealously defend the accused and get the best resolution for every case.
Your case deserves the strongest possible defense. Not because you can buy it, but because
YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING WITH RIGHTS.
That’s what the US Supreme Court decided in 1963 when it required states to provide criminal defense attorneys for accused persons who could not afford them. As Georgia public defenders, we listen to our clients. We care about their well-being. Most importantly, we pull out all the stops to minimize the time our clients spend in jail and maximize their post-release opportunities.
