Defending Against Criminal Charges In West Georgia

In Georgia and across the country, the majority of individuals who face criminal charges do not go to trial. In fact, it is estimated that as many as nine out 10 criminal cases - both state and federal - are resolved through plea bargains or dismissal of charges. This can benefit an accused party or work against the accused. If you face criminal charges, the lawyer you select to represent you will have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.

I am Kierston M. Phillips, a criminal defense attorney in Carrollton, Georgia, who has worked on both sides of criminal law. As a result, I understand how much the outcome of a criminal case is determined by what happens in the early stages. I know the flexibility the state has, particularly with alternative sentencing, and how to tell when the state's case is not a strong one.

Committed To Your Best Interest

Too many criminal defense lawyers take a formulaic approach to defending their clients. They may feel they have seen hundreds of cases like it, and they have a predetermined notion of what the outcome should be.

I operate differently. Every case merits careful examination of the facts before developing a legal strategy, whether it is a misdemeanor charge such as driving under the influence (DUI) or a felony assault or drug charge. Did police follow proper procedures? Was the investigation thorough? Have your constitutional rights been violated? Is a plea agreement in your best interest or does it make more sense to go to trial?

I represent clients who face a broad spectrum of charges in Carroll County, Coweta County and beyond. I can defend you if you face charges on:

  • Traffic offenses
  • DUI
  • Drug possession and drug trafficking
  • Weapons crimes
  • Assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Theft and burglary
  • Fraud
  • Identity theft

The Solution That's Right For You

Just because most cases are resolved through plea agreements does not mean it's the best idea for you. It is important for you to fully understand the short- and long-term impacts of any agreement before agreeing to it. I will not push you into any plea agreement that you do not feel comfortable with. Rather, I will take the time to review every aspect of your case, including any offers from prosecutors to resolve the case out of court, and discuss them thoroughly with you so we can make informed decisions together.

The important first step is to contact me as soon as possible to schedule a consultation. I will provide a candid assessment of your case, answer your questions and recommend the best course of action.
