James E. Dangerfield: Your First Line of Defense For a DUI in Atlanta

Getting arrested for a DUI or any other crime is one of the most traumatic events people ever experience. I know this is true from personal experience and from first-hand accounts of the thousands of people I have represented in court since 1999. I also know that most people are confused about what can happen to them, what might happen to them, and what is likely to happen to them. When you visit me, I will clear up confusion and will walk you through the legal process step-by-step. You don’t need to worry about breaking the bank because it won’t cost you a penny upfront.

I will consult with you, for a reasonable time, for free. If you decide you want me to represent you or continue consulting, I will charge a reasonable fee. I answer my own phone. If I don’t answer, it’s because I can’t. If you need to talk to me before I call you back, consider calling me again.

Criminal Defense

I am dedicated to my clients and the outcome of the case. Personal freedom, autonomy and privacy are God-given rights that must be defended. When the State wishes to act against an individual, my role is to insure that every good and lawful defense is raised, every right preserved, all procedures exhausted and every opportunity explored before the State acts.

DUIs and criminal charges can have lasting effects on your future if it is not taken care of properly from the very start. Working with an experienced attorney can increase your chances of reduced sentencing. No matter what your situation is, I will listen to you and determine the best course of legal action.

If my outlook on my role as a defense lawyer, criminal or otherwise, makes sense to you, please give me a call.
