The Time to Act Is Now

If you have been arrested, detained, questioned, or even suspect that you may be the subject of a police investigation, you need to contact an experienced Atlanta criminal defense attorney right away. Time is of the essence in establishing a successful defense to criminal charges. At Nagel & Associates, we know how valuable your rights and freedoms are, and we will act fast to limit the impact of any potential charges against you.


In many criminal cases, the early intervention of an attorney can mean a great deal. For example, in DUI arrests, you have only ten days from the date of arrest to request a hearing, or in all likelihood your license will be revoked. In drug charge cases, evidence essential to the prosecution’s case may or may not be admissible depending on what you told police before and after your arrest, whether you were properly advised of your rights, or whether police had the authority to perform a search. If you submit to police questioning without first consulting an attorney, you risk throwing away your precious rights and increase the likelihood of a conviction.

If your child faces charges in the juvenile justice system, it is also very important to act quickly to ensure a full defense can be presented. Some people believe juvenile crimes are less important than other crimes, but they can leave a lasting mark on a child’s record, result in serious life-altering consequences, and juveniles can even be tried as adults in certain cases. It is a mistake to minimize a juvenile criminal charge or simply let the child fight for himself. Promptly consulting with an attorney can have a tremendous impact on your child’s future.
