Do you need a criminal attorney? Have you been accused of a traffic violation, drug offense, theft, assault or battery, DUI or rape? Is there a warrant for your arrest? In criminal law, the state or federal government initiates the prosecution of charges. Crimes are classified as misdemeanors (less serious offenses that are normally punishable by a fine or incarceration for a year or less) such as shoplifting or possession of small amounts of marijuana, while felonies (more serious offenses that warrant imprisonment of one year or more) such as robbery, rape or murder.
The Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) has been serving the general public in the metropolitan Atlanta and surrounding areas since 1955. The goal of our LRIS is to refer you to the right attorney who reflects legal professionalism, integrity and a commitment to service.
