In Georgia, Even A Possession Charge Can Land You In Jail

Drug laws in Georgia are marked by mandatory prison sentences and fines reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars. These punishments apply even to minor offenses. While possessing small amounts of marijuana is a misdemeanor, almost every other drug charge is a felony. It is certain you will suffer stiff penalties if you do not have a knowledgeable lawyer to defend you in court.

The attorneys at Phillips Carson & Phillips have provided firm defense against drug crimes charges for more than 40 years. Serving Savannah and the surrounding area, we practice at both the state and federal levels. Regardless of the crime, we fight aggressively to protect our clients' rights.

We Offer Aggressive, Effective Defense Against Drug Charges

Our approach is thorough. We will examine every aspect of the charges against you. If there are any weaknesses, we will find them. We will work rigorously to have the charges reduced or dismissed. Moreover, we have tried hundreds of cases in court. We know how to use juries to our advantage. We have a successful record of discrediting the prosecution's evidence — including evidence gathered from false confessions and phone wiretaps.
