About Our Firm


A criminal charge can potentially have serious repercussions on your life or that of your loved one. Regardless of the alleged crime, it is not something that should be approached lightly or without guidance.

An experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the tactics necessary to defend your rights and pursue a positive outcome is a strong ally as you fight these charges.

Not all law firms are equally qualified to defend serious criminal cases, and it is a well-established fact the skill and talent of your lawyer has an impact on the outcome of your case.

At Trentacosta & Associates P.C. we have extensive experience in defending cases, both prior to trial and in the courtroom.


With over 2,000 criminal cases won, our experience and expertise allow us to implement innovative legal strategies to handle even the most complicated criminal defense cases.

After an arrest & before charges are formally filed by indictment, it is often possible to avoid serious repercussions if Immediate Defensive Action is taken.

From the moment an arrest is made we provide high quality, aggressive defense for individuals charged with all types of criminal offenses.

In the state of Georgia it is especially important to have a talented, well connected Defense Attorney.


Trentacosta & Associates P.C. is multidimensional, we understand that no two criminal cases are alike and we are proficient in all forms of criminal law.

This enables us to take on cases of Assault with the same level of expertise as we take on cases of Juvenile Crimes. Your case may have involved a child, which is an extremely sensitive issue for the courts. For this reason, we are available to defend you in cases involving child abuse, kidnapping and even sex crimes.

You may have been charged with a federal crime such as a white collar crime, identity theft or tax fraud. Even misdemeanors such as disorderly conduct, parole and probation violations should be handled with the utmost seriousness.

After an arrest for a DUI in Georgia you are sure to face a License Suspension or even Felony Charges. You must act now!

Your immediate actions can be the most important decisions you make regarding your case, and for your life. It’s crucial to avoid answering the questions directly to investigators and/or law enforcement officers without first contacting an attorney. A majority of people do so & immediately incriminate themselves!

Atlanta has long been identified by police and law enforcement agencies throughout the nation as a city plagued by drug wars because of its passage from Florida to the North. Atlanta is also reported to have one of the most active trafficking areas for drugs coming into the United States, and highways such as I-85 and I-75 are common routes for traffickers. Crack, ice, heroin and ecstasy are some of the most commonly used drugs in Atlanta, and law enforcement is also focusing on pharmaceuticals narcotic abuse.

As a result of the large amount of drugs, Atlanta also has a large amount of violent crime. The Atlanta Police Department has actively targeted these criminal activated, focusing their efforts on robberies, property crimes like burglary and auto theft, and murders. Those who are under investigation by the Atlanta Police Department should seek the help and protection of a criminal defense lawyer immediately.

Your case is important to us. Determining the best course of defense action requires a deep evaluation of all evidence obtained prior to and during your arrest.

A painstaking assessment involves a review of all statements and other physical and scientific evidence to determine if any errors exist that could lead to early dismissal of your charges.

When law enforcement has stepped outside the bounds of the law by conducting an illegal search and seizure, it can provide our team with the ammunition we need to have such evidence suppressed.

Any error, flawed witness statements, or other mitigating evidence must be identified at once, from a traffic related offense to the most serious of crimes, including violent crimes.

Many cases have the potential for early dismissal, reduced charges or an acquittal when we have the opportunity to immediately get into action.

We strongly advise you to contact our legal team immediately after an arrest, or if you are under investigation for a serious crime.

Keeps his word Attorney Chad from the start was professional and honest. He told me what would happen, how it would happen, and the end results. It helped a great deal. We were able to be proactive before court. I especially liked his personal touch of him handling your case instead of his staff. He always kept me in the loop of what was happening. I would definitely recommend him or use him again.
