When the government charges you or a loved one with a crime, it can be very difficult to know what to do and who to trust. Whether the case involves a traffic ticket, or more serious misdemeanor or felony offenses, we believe that it is always worthwhile to seek the help of a lawyer to resolve these important matters. The earlier you get defense counsel involved, the better the outcome is likely to be.
Joel’s work in the criminal justice area began when he served as a police officer after completing college. His police experience, together with his time as an investigator and Enforcement lawyer with NASD furthered his understanding of investigation techniques, evidentiary requirements and the steps needed to build a case, and allowed Joel to gain significant litigation experience. Now, in private practice, Joel uses his knowledge and experience to fight for the rights of his clients that are accused of a crime.
Whether your situation involves “white collar” type crimes relating to the financial markets or other areas (like embezzlement, credit card fraud, forgery, securities fraud or accounting fraud to name a few), or misdemeanor or felony charges such as theft, burglary, assault, battery, traffic matters, drug offenses, perjury, false statements, or other offenses, put Joel in your corner to help protect your rights and guide you to a resolution of the case either through a negotiated plea agreement or through a trial before a judge or jury.
While Joel often represents clients in securities regulation proceedings across the country, Joel’s criminal defense practice is largely limited to metro Atlanta and to Gwinnett County, including Gwinnett State, Superior, Recorders and Magistrate courts, as well as municipal courts in Lilburn, Lawrenceville, Snellville, Duluth, Suwanee, Loganville, Norcross, and other courts across metro Atlanta including Forsyth County, DeKalb County, Fulton County, Cobb County, Walton County and the U.S. District Court for North Georgia.
