The lawyers at Garland, Samuel & Loeb are experienced in handling the defense of a white-collar prosecution. There is no “legal” definition of a white-collar crime. Generally, white collar crimes are characterized by a crime that alleges theft or fraud – in other words, rather than a violent crime, or a drug or a sex offense. Typical of white-collar crimes are significant fraud offenses involving large financial frauds. Often, the defendant is a professional (banker, public official, doctor, lawyer, business professional).Learn More
The defense of these cases involves a thorough understanding of the law – available defenses and challenges to the evidence; and a command of the facts which is accomplished by reviewing the prosecution’s “discovery” and conducting additional independent investigation.Learn More
Beyond decades of potential prison, a conviction means you will also be required to register as a sex offender, which prevents you from living or working within 1,000 feet of schools, parks, and other places where children congregate.Learn More
These offenses apply to numerous drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and scores of other controlled substances including pharmaceutical drugs. There are cases involving street-level distributors and other cases involving corrupt doctors who sell opioids for no legitimate medical purpose. The sentences range from probation to life in prison, depending on the drug involved, the quantity of the drug involved, and the defendant’s prior record.Learn More
In the Georgia Supreme Court, nine Justices hear the appeal. In federal cases tried in Georgia, Florida, and Alabama, three judges in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the appeal. The defendant, having been found guilty, will assert in the appeal that the trial was unfair for a variety of reasons: The prosecutor was permitted to introduce evidence that was inadmissible (such as hearsay); the defense was prohibited from introducing evidence that should have been admitted; the defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights to be free from an illegal search or seizure were violated and the trial judge did not correctly decide this issue in the trial court; the evidence at trial was not sufficient to support the conviction, notwithstanding the decision of the jury; the defendant’s trial counsel was either incompetent, or made a significant mistake at trial, or in preparing for trial and locating favorable witnesses. These are just a sample of the types of errors that can support a successful appeal.Learn More

The accident could be caused by a simple driving error, or something more complex like an over-tired driver, a poorly maintained vehicle, or the like.

If the injury is due to the intentional wrongful act or negligence of another, a tort claim can be brought for compensation. The damages awardable can include compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, disfigurement, and the like. In some cases, punitive damages can be available.Learn More
The hazard could be some condition on the property, like an open fall hazard, or it can be a failure to provide adequate security.
