Georgia ranks among the most dangerous states. The numbers of murders per capita and rapes per capita are far above the national average. For this reason, the courts treat violent offenses with the utmost seriousness. Depending on the crime, even first-time offenders can receive up to 20 years in prison. The penalties for repeat offenders are more severe. Without firm legal representation, individuals are likely to spend years and years behind bars.
The attorneys at Phillips Carson & Phillips can help. For more than 40 years, attorney Phillips has defended his clients in Savannah and the surrounding area against violent crime charges. His firm has tried thousands of cases, and won acquittals for clients facing all types of serious criminal allegations.
