Experience is important.

Credentials are important.

Trust your criminal defense case to a law firm that knows the system. We are former prosecutors turned defenders with more than 30 years of experience.

Being Charged With A Crime Does Not Mean You Are Guilty

Every day, innocent people are caught up in the criminal defense system. False allegations and wrongful convictions are serious issues. If you have been charged with a crime you didn’t commit, you need immediate and aggressive criminal defense representation. Even if you did make a mistake, you do not have to plead guilty and accept overly harsh penalties. There may be options to keep your record clean or minimize the punishment.

At Michael D. Barber & Associates, our attorneys provide experienced criminal defense representation throughout the Atlanta area. We understand how frightening it can be when criminal charges put your future in jeopardy, so we give your case the care and attention necessary to succeed.
