Who Will Protect Your Rights?
When you have been charged with a property or theft crime, it can be easy to just go with the flow. Unfortunately, convictions bring long-term consequences with them. Further, a prosecutor and a judge are not there to protect your rights exclusively. Your lawyer, however, would be.
For that reason, you should contact the law office of Jeffrey E. Johnston, in Evans, Georgia. We bring more than 15 years of experience to the table in every criminal defense matter we handle. In fact, for five of those years, Jeffrey E. Johnston served as a prosecutor in the district attorney’s office. As a result, he knows how both sides of a criminal case think. As your attorney, he can put those insights to work for you in a wide variety of criminal matters, including:
- State and federal charges
- Stolen property
- White collar crimes
Experienced Legal Judgment In Difficult Criminal Matters
Included in those years of experience are numerous trials. In fact, we consider trial work one of the strengths of our firm, Mr. Johnston having tried any number of cases when trial became necessary to protect the rights of our firm’s client.
To that end, you will always know our candid opinion of where your case stands. Trial is not always the right option for everyone, just as settlement is not always the answer for every client. Instead, we will tailor our recommendations to the circumstances of your case. Those circumstances can include the judge and prosecutor assigned to your case, how they have ruled in other cases similar to yours and how we think they might view your case now. Mr. Johnston’s years of experience also mean he understands how juries think, should you need a jury trial to protect your rights.
We can deliver that level of personalized service because we take the time to get to know our clients. We will not assign you to a random assistant you have never met once you hire us. Instead, Mr. Johnston will sit down with you and speak with you himself. We draw on that relationship with you to craft the legal solutions appropriate to your case. With us in your corner, you will be able to understand your options and choose from them wisely.
