Turn To A South Georgia-Based Criminal Law Attorney
When you have been charged with a serious crime, your future is on the line. A conviction for a serious felony can result in imprisonment, high fines and a negative impact on numerous aspects of your life, including employment opportunities.
If you have been charged with a crime, it is in your best interests to contact an attorney immediately. Our lawyer, Jody D. Peterman, has more than 25 years of experience helping Georgia residents defend against criminal charges. At our law firm in Valdosta, we are selective about the cases we accept so that our advocacy will help those with the greatest defense needs. We assist clients throughout the Valdosta area and all of Georgia who have been charged with serious felony charges, including:
- Murder and other homicide charges
- Felony drug charges, including drug trafficking across the state line between South Georgia and North Florida
- Overdose-related drug crime and homicide charges
- Rape and other sex offenses
Not everyone accused of a felony offense is guilty. In many cases, it is possible to secure a reduction or dismissal of charges. We will work closely with you throughout the process to make sure you understand your rights and options. It is our goal to make sure you feel comfortable from beginning to end and confident in the criminal defense strategy we implement.
Protecting The Futures Of People Facing Life-Altering Felony Charges
Criminal allegations can have a serious impact on the lives of defendants, young and old alike. If we take your case, we will fight to protect you from sex offender registration requirements and other consequences that could ruin your career as well as your good name.
A criminal conviction can threaten the academic life, professional reputation and/or legacy of a young, middle-aged or older adult. We work closely with each defendant to develop and implement a defense strategy aimed at protecting their future.
