Minimizing the Effects on Your Life
A conviction for a misdemeanor drug possession or alcohol charge can have long-lasting effects on your life beyond the penalties you receive. A conviction for possession of less than one ounce of marijuana or minor consumption of alcohol may lead to the suspension of your driver's license and any other state licenses you hold. A conviction on any misdemeanor charge can follow you for life and affect your career prospects and earning potential.
In representing you, The Siemon Law Firm will work to obtain the best outcome possible. These outcomes can include a dismissal of the charge, victory at trial, or a deferred judgment that minimizes the effects on your life and keeps your record clear of any criminal record or conviction.
Our attorneys will look at every aspect of the event, and use the facts and the law to build a defense. In a drug possession charge for example, the prosecution must establish many facts, including chain of possession and show probable cause for the investigation. The Siemon Law Firm will systematically review each element of the case to develop your defense.
Alternatives to Conviction
In Georgia, there are alternatives to conviction. First offenders can receive a deferred judgment, which prevents a conviction from being entered into your permanent record. Not everyone is eligible for this type of outcome. Our lawyers can discuss this possibility and if it is right for you.
