Criminal charges can be made on a traffic ticket (called a uniform traffic citation), or by way of an arrest warrant, accusation or indictment for felony sex crimes, murder, armed robbery, burglary and a host of other crimes.

When we represent clients, criminal defense lawyers are member of the Georgia Bar, and licensed to practice law in the State.

Only a spouse has a similar level of protection from being made to testify against an accused person.

These legal professionals usually specialize in some field such as personal injury, divorce or possible criminal defense. Far more attorneys in Georgia handle non-criminal (civil) matters than there are defending those charged with violating criminal laws.

Jury Trials Only Occur in Cobb State Court or Cobb Superior Court – Criminal Lawyers Marietta GA

Except for a DUI felony, first degree vehicular homicide, or serious injury by vehicle felony, State Court of Cobb County processes all DUI misdemeanor cases originating in the unincorporated parts of Cobb County. Plus, cases bound over from Cobb County municipal court locations come to Cobb State Court for their jury trials.

The misdemeanor criminal cases being processed in State Court of Cobb County include all misdemeanor arrests NOT made in one of the six municipalities. Also, for misdemeanor DUI cases that need a jury trial, State Court is where misdemeanors go to jury trial. State Court is the place for trial, a negotiated plea, or (for repeat offenders) to participate in the DUI Court, and to be able to conduct meaningful pre-trial motions hearings.

Because the Georgia Constitution restricts State Courts from hearing any felony criminal matters, the Superior Court of Cobb County, GA handles all felony criminal cases, such as the types of cases set forth above. These include all jury trials or bench (non-jury) trials for felonies.

Our criminal defense attorneys Marietta handle various types of felony charges each month, but most of those felonies are for drugs, or are alcohol-related cases, like felony homicide by vehicle while DUI or driving recklessly.

Excluding Police Evidence Wins Criminal Justice Cases

The most important police evidence usually includes your breathalyzer test results showing how your breath alcohol test was collected, any blood test results for drugs or alcohol content, and the police video of your speech, balance, driving and demeanor, plus any voluntary field sobriety tests performed that lead to your criminal case arrest.
