Criminal Defense

We can help.

Criminal charges are serious and set in motion a process that most people have never dealt with. Our lawyers have.

Being accused of violating the law, no matter how serious the charge, can follow you for the rest of your life. Even something as seemingly minor as a speeding ticket can result in points being assessed against your driver’s license, increased auto insurance premiums, and—in some cases—your auto insurance carrier terminating your coverage.

Our lawyers have a proven track record of aggressively defending clients accused of crimes of every kind. This is true whether you are facing the simplest misdemeanor or the most serious felony. We have the knowledge and experience to protect your fundamental constitutional rights. And when the State attempts to prosecute you for a crime with the full force of its governmental resources, we fight for your rights to due process, the presumption of innocence and a trial by a jury of your peers. In criminal cases, the State must prove its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt, the highest burden of proof under the law. You can rest assured that we will force the State to meet its burden of proof.

We help individuals charged with DUIs of every kind, no matter how serious the circumstances, by investigating the facts, challenging breathalyzer results, breath and blood tests, toxicology and blood-alcohol determinations and field sobriety testing and fighting to defend your rights and protect what matters most—your freedom.

Once we investigate the circumstances surrounding your case, when appropriate, we negotiate with prosecutors (district attorneys and state-court solicitors) to reduce, dismiss, or completely eliminate your criminal charges either through a negotiated plea (similar to a civil out of court settlement) or by appearing with you in court to argue and defend your case in front of a judge or a jury. Bottom line, we work to defend you, protect your rights and minimize the impact on you and your family.

Whether you are facing a misdemeanor or a felony, a DUI or drug possession, distribution, armed robbery, rape, aggravated assault or murder or any other charge, our team of lawyers have the experience to efficiently and effectively defend you.

Jail or prison time. Money fines. Lost driver’s license. Lost employment. A criminal record that could haunt you for years to come. The issues are real and so is our ability to help. The legal team at Jones, Osteen & Jones encourages you to call us as soon as you have been arrested or charged or as soon after as possible, (912) 876-0111. Do not delay. Do not make the mistake of thinking you can handle these charges on your own. You have too much at stake to go it alone.

Getting help from a lawyer as early in the process as possible, a right guaranteed by the Constitution, is critical. The police officer who arrested you, the district attorney or state-court solicitor who is prosecuting you are NOT on your side and are NOT working to defend your rights. Your lawyer is the only person working for you to protect you. If you don’t have a lawyer, then who is fighting for you? Call us today at (912) 876-0111.
