DUI Criminal Defense Attorney Decatur, GA
Every case should be prepared for trial even though we know that not every case will go to trial.
Our reasoning behind our motto is that even though preparing a case for trial is a long and complex process that unfortunately, many lawyers avoid doing the valuable groundwork for, at The Lynch Law Group we take the opposite approach. We have found that being ready for trial is the best way to find out about your case, to come up with the best and all possible defenses in order to be able to get you the best possible outcome for your particular situation.
In the legal community, it is often said that the lawyer who is most familiar with the facts of the case ends up winning. By preparing every case for trial, we are able to learn as much as we can about you, your case, and your goal for your case. We investigate the officers, evidence, and witnesses involved in your case, leaving no stones unturned. With this information, we build a legal and factual trial defense for a jury in order to be able to present the most compelling evidence in your favor during preliminary and pre-trial hearings, and in the event your case goes to trial, we can hit the ground running.
Another advantage of preparing every case for trial is the position of power it gives us. We are not bluffing when we say we are ready- and the State knows this. This reputation gives us the leverage we need to get you the best deal possible. In preparing a case for trial and learning the weaknesses in the State’s evidence, many cases, which appear hopeless to the defendant, can be dismissed or reduced to a lesser charge without a trial ever becoming necessary.
Being charged with a crime is one of the worst experiences you can go through. At The Lynch Law Group we understand this. In order to help you through this difficult and frustrating process, Mr. Lynch prepares your case for trial so that you can explore every outcome and make the choice of how to proceed that is most right for you.

If you have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and/or other substances, while you may be feeling like all hope is lost, contact The Lynch Law Group to find out how we may be able to get your charges dismissed and if not entirely, get them lowered to less severe charges than the ones that you are facing. On a regular basis, innocent people are subjected to being wrongly stopped, investigated, arrested and accused of a DUI (driving under the influence). To combat this, we work tirelessly while investigating your case to figure out the best possible defenses, as if we are going to trial. We do this to be able to present as much compelling evidence against the state as possible in order to limit your chances of going to trial and receiving a harsher punishment.
If you have been accused of a misdemeanor crime or crimes, without a good defense attorney, you may face up to a year in jail and up to a $1,000 fine for each misdemeanor you are charged with. If you are convicted of a misdemeanor crime, it can negatively impact your life for years after your jail time and probation period are over. The Lynch Law Group takes every criminal charge and the person’s life who was charged with it very seriously and will fight to prevent you from facing its potentially, very serious repercussions.
If you are convicted of a felony crime you face a minimum of a one-year prison sentence, all the way to life in prison, and even the death penalty. While every criminal charge is a very serious charge, felony charges are typically viewed as being more serious than a misdemeanor charge. If you are facing felony charges, contact the reliable team at The Lynch Law Group.
There are many different kinds of criminal charges involving drugs and every one is serious and can result in jail time and fines. It does not matter whether you have been charged with being under the influence of an illegal substance, in possession of one, selling an illegal substance or caught with intent to sell, drug trafficking, misdemeanor drug defense, under the First Offender statute, or federal drug charges, if you are convicted of an¥ one of these- even after you do jail time, pay your fines and other requirements to keep your status legal, it can negatively impact the rest of your life. It does not matter whether your drug charges are related to ones that seem as benign as more social substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, illegal possession of prescription painkillers, or ones that are less socially accepted, the penalties if you are convicted of them are harsh. A good drug defense attorney from Decataur, GA may be able to save you from this now and from a distant future of still having to deal with it.
Federal Criminal Defense
Federal and state courts often prosecute similar charges but where they differ is that when a state charges you with a crime, it typically results in an arrest right after you are caught doing something illegal, but federal prosecutors typically build a case against someone they suspect of committing crimes or is about to commit one, prior to their arrest and prosecution. Common criminal offenses that are tried by federal courts include but are not limited to drugs, weapons, money laundering, firearms, bank robberies, white collar crimes, and child pornography.

Sex Offender Registration

Probation & Parole
Probation is a court-imposed criminal sentence that, subject to stated conditions and restrictions, releases a person who has been convicted of a crime to live outside of the confines of a jail or prison. Parole is the release of a prisoner who promises good behavior, sometimes temporarily for a special purpose, or permanently, before the completion of a sentence. Unfortunately, there are many different ways that a probation or parole can be violated and when this happens, it can have serious repercussions, including a long jail or prison sentence.
