Criminal Defense

If you have been arrested, it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney protecting your rights. Being convicted for even a seemingly minor offense can have repercussions that affect many areas of your life, including your education and employment.

At Fortson, Bentley, & Griffin, we provide knowledgeable and aggressive representation to clients throughout Athens and northeast Georgia. We have a proven record of success defending clients against criminal charges.

We defend clients in a variety of criminal matters including:

  • Speeding and Traffic Offenses
  • Drug Charges
  • Underage Possession of Alcohol
  • Misdemeanor Crimes

We are adept at negotiating with prosecutors and know how to seek favorable plea bargains when it is in our client’s bests interests. If you are better served by going to trial, however, we are fully prepared to try your case in state or federal court.
