The most serious crimes in the state of Georgia are felonies. If you are convicted of a felony, you will face grave penalties, including high fines and time in prison. In addition, being convicted of a felony can continue to impact your life in a negative way even after you have served your sentence, making it more difficult for you to find housing and/or get a job.

When you are facing felony charges, having the right attorney on your side is essential. At the Office of ALJ, we make it our mission to help each client protect their rights and safeguard their future.

If you trust our team to handle your felony criminal defense, we will begin by taking the time to learn about your case in detail. If you are offered a plea deal, we will help you consider your options and make the best choice. If your case goes to court, we will fight aggressively on your behalf.

Below are some of the specific charges we handle:


Murder is a charge that carries a strong penalty in Georgia. If you are convicted of this charge, you may face life in prison, life in prison without parole, or even the death penalty. Because of the severity of this charge, having an experienced attorney is highly recommended.

Our firm will explore all possible defenses for murder charges, including accidents, self defense, and defense of others. Depending on the circumstances, we may also seek a reduction of your charges. We advocate fiercely for our clients, regardless of the situation.


Rape is another of the most serious felonies recognized by the state of Georgia. If you receive a rape conviction, you may face time in prison or other significant consequences. Different defenses may be used to fight rape charges, including lack of DNA evidence, consent, and failure to withdraw consent. The exact strategy we will recommend in your case will depend on the specifics.

Our firm understands the severity of rape charges and the impact a conviction can have on your life. We will take the time to fully understand your situation so we can help you build the best possible defense.

Armed Robbery

You may be charged with armed robbery in Georgia if you take property belonging to another person with the use of any weapon. You can also be charged with this felony even if you use a harmless item that has the appearance of a weapon. Penalties for armed robbery vary but typically include time in prison.

As your legal team, we will review all the evidence to develop the most effective defense strategy. We may also advise you to accept a plea bargain offered by the prosecution, depending on your circumstances. Our ultimate goal is to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.


The state of Georgia issues criminal charges for drug trafficking, sex trafficking, and human trafficking. All of these offenses are grave. If you are convicted of a trafficking charge, you will likely face life-altering consequences.
