We Defend Clients Against Drug Charges
When you or someone you love has been charged with a drug offense, your freedom may be at stake. You need a criminal defense lawyer you can trust to fight for the best possible outcome.
Margaret Gettle Washburn is a current judge and former prosecutor who now has practiced law for over 35 years. She knows the ins and outs of the criminal system and is adept at uncovering flaws in the prosecution’s case. When your future is on the line, you can count on our legal team to put its extensive experience to work for you with the goal of reaching the best possible results. Located in Lawrenceville, we offer aggressive criminal defense representation to those facing drug crimes throughout Gwinnett County, Jackson County, Barrow County and the surrounding areas.
We Practice In State And Federal Courts
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be prosecuted in Georgia state court or federal court. Many higher level drug crimes, like trafficking, may be prosecuted at the federal level where harsh mandatory sentencing minimums apply.
Not all attorneys have the qualifications or skills to represent clients in federal court. Our law firm serves Gwinnett County and the surrounding counties in criminal cases at both the state and federal levels.
We zealously defend clients who have been charged with the possession, sale, manufacturing or trafficking of illegal or controlled narcotics and substances such as:
- Crack cocaine
- Prescription drugs, including benzodiazepine, commonly referred to as benzos, diazepam, Klonopin and Adderall
In addition to handling your criminal charges, we can help you if you are a professional whose license is being challenged or revoked due to the allegations against you or if you are a parent who is experiencing related child custody challenges.
