Roughly 28 thousand people are arrested every day in the U.S., totaling 10.5 million arrests per year. Of those, only a small portion are actually convicted. Even though most arrests do not lead to imprisonment, overzealous law enforcement has led to mass incarceration and an overcrowded prison system. After an arrest, defendants have to deal with the fallout of a blemished reputation, legal fees, and removing the arrest from their criminal record (which remains even if you are found not guilty).
If you have been arrested, you need dedicated representation from lawyers who care about what happens to your future. At Miller & Key, our criminal defense attorneys serve McDonough and throughout Georgia. Our team is committed to providing quality representation and advocating for people whose voices would otherwise go unheard. We take the time to understand what our clients need and provide representation that is aggressive, fair, and ethical.
Worried that you can’t afford an attorney and are considering going with a public defender? Give us a call first. Public defenders are experienced litigators, but they are overworked and will not have the time to give your case the personal attention it deserves. At Miller & Key, our goal is to help people who face unjust imprisonment and penalties. We are advocates of rehabilitation over incarceration.
When appropriate, we seek alternatives to jail or prison, whether that be enrolling a client in addiction rehab, obtaining a dismissal of charges, or reducing felony offenses to misdemeanors. We represent clients charged with DUI, drug crimes, marijuana offenses, sexual offenses, and more. We have been involved in over 100 jury trials. Our team has the experience and skills needed to competently litigate before a judge and jury. Contact us today to request a free consultation.
We know being charged with a crime can be confusing and overwhelming. We are here to answer your questions and guide you in the right direction.
