Hiring a criminal defense attorney who will protect your rights and counter the case against you is crucial. Joseph T. Rhodes Law Firm is an Augusta law firm dedicated to helping accused Georgia residents challenge the claims made by authorities and avoid unjust punishment.

Any criminal conviction carries serious consequences that can last long after incarceration is completed or a fine is paid.

Don’t be misled into thinking that there is no chance to fight back against a wrongful accusation. No matter how severe the alleged crime might be, you still have fundamental rights and we are here to see that they are honored. We’ll work to prevent abuses against you and advocate for a dismissal, acquittal or reduction in charges based on what is in your best interests. If you’ve been charged, there is no time to waste. Our firm provides a free initial consultation so you can obtain assistance from a qualified defense lawyer immediately.
Losing your license due to an accumulation of points or a traffic offense conviction might limit your ability to go to work or take care of your family. Even a speeding ticket could cost you hundreds of dollars in fines and higher insurance costs. Despite what many believe, citations for moving violations such as running a red light can be defeated, preventing you from accumulating license points that could result in the loss of driving privileges. For these matters as well as criminal offenses associated with motor vehicle operation, including reckless driving and driving under the influence of alcohol, our lawyers will fight back against baseless allegations.
