Stuff happens. We all make mistakes. Whether you're wrongfully accused or you just made a bad decision, the fact is, You Are INNOCENT Until Proven Guilty Beyond a Reasonable Doubt. You may hear some cynics say "guilty until proven innocent" but those folks must have hired the wrong lawyer or just had a public defender.

You've probaly heard the term "beyond a reasonable doubt" on TV or Law and Order a hudnred times, but you probably didn't know that the Georgia Supreme Court says that it's the equivalent of "to a moral and reasonable certainty." Wow, that means the jury has to be reasonably certain you did it. Nowadays, with hackers, photoshop, fake news, abusive police, and catfish profiles... it's hard to be certain of anything in life. Jurors today are connected to the world. They're smarter than ever and they don't trust the government lawyers any more than they trust the politicians or the news media.

What do I do after I've been arrested?

Protect yourself! Get a lawyer who knows her stuff. Ignore the police when they want to "help you." It is LEGAL for them to lie to you. You must assert and protect your right to be silent. Actually, being silent is really not enough. Did you know that if you just sit there and say nothing then the police can keep questioning you ALL DAY LONG. The US Supreme Court says that you cannot be passive with your right to remain silent. You must stand up for yourself and assert your right.

Memorize this sentence. "I do not want to talk to you and I want my lawyer." Now practice saying it three times out loud. Teach this phrase to your friends and your children. It may save their life or save their future. This phrase is like legal magic. Once you say these 13 words the cops must stop asking you questions without your lawyer present. Speaking to police or prosecutors or working out a deal without the help of a seasoned and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney is a poor strategy. We have experience helping individuals charged with the following:

DUI — A DUI conviction has life-changing consequences. You could experience jail, increases in your insurance rates, or a loss of your driver's license. Your employer could fire you for violating its zero-tolerance policy related to criminal convictions. With so much at stake, you need an aggressive advocate speaking on your behalf and protecting your rights.

Drug Crimes — At Daniels & Taylor, P.C., we represent clients charged with drug possession and manufacturing. Many have found themselves facing criminal charges because of an addiction. We get to the source of the problem and find the best resolution for you. Some judges would rather see you get treatment than go to jail. Other judges like to give boot-camp, probation and/or community service to let you straighten out your act.

WE CAN HELP YOU! Contact our Lawrenceville law office at 770-604-1380.

Sex Crimes — The lifetime consequences of a sex crimes charge mandate that you seek immediate representation from an aggressive, experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. If you get on the sex offender registry, you may not be able to find a place anywhere to live. You'd be surprised how many homeless people under a bridge got there because of a sex crime conviction... Resolving the matter on your own is simply not an option. You need help to protect not only your rights, but also your reputation.

Juvenile Crimes — While the focus of juvenile crimes is rehabilitating your teenager, more serious charges could result in your child being charged as an adult. One mistake as a child should not impact the rest of their life. The black mark on their record could prevent them from attending college or working their dream job.

Traffic Violations — Traffic tickets are more than just an annoying nuisance. As they add up, you could face loss of your driver's license and skyrocketing insurance rates. If you just pay the fine now, you might keep paying the cost month after month on your premium as well. If you don't have time to hire a lawyer before going to court, or even if you are in the Courthouse lobby right now, when your name is called, tell the judge that you need some extra time to hire a lawyer and you could get your case pushed off until later. Violations are not a minor crime and you should take them seriously by seeking the help of an attorney.

Property Crimes — If you have been charged with a property crime, including shoplifting, receiving stolen goods or destruction of property, you must defend your reputation. People simply won't trust you if you have a property crime on your background check. Dontt you want to be able to get a job? Or do you maybe you want go to college? It could certainly prevent you from getting a law licence, nursing license, or other professional license. These are all good reasons that you need an aggressive criminal lawyer. We have years of experience successfully defending property crimes. You may qualify for government programs to keep your record clean while you just pay a fine, do some community service, get some probation, or something else.

Assault & Battery — Charges for assault and battery carry serious consequences. If you have been involved in a street fight, bar fight or other physical confrontation, you probably regret it now. We all do things or say things that we regret when we are angry. Men have been fighting over women (and vice versa) since the beginning of time. You don't deserve to suffer for years over a 10 minute bad choice. Prosecutors will take advantage of you if you show up to court all alone. You need an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney by your side.

White Collar Crimes — Financial crimes have been front page news as our economy has faltered in recent years. Because of this, prosecutors have taken these crimes very seriously. If you have been charged with a white collar crime, you need experienced representation on your side.

We will protect your rights and make sure you receive the justice you deserve.
