Trentacosta & Associates P.C. will aggressively defend the constitutional rights of the accused. Our firm’s attorneys will fight to protect our clients at every stage of their criminal case. We handle federal, state and misdemeanor cases in Georgia.

DWI/DUI Drunk Driving

Too often people pulled over for drunk driving think they have no defense, so they plead guilty. This is a serious mistake. There may be defense strategies we can use to challenge the field test or breath test. Don’t risk license suspension or revocation.

Domestic Violence

Domestic battery is a serious charge that many people don’t really understand. It’s now up to the State—they will prosecute regardless of your spouse’s wishes. Conviction for domestic abuse can have many unexpected consequences.

Theft Charges

Theft is a broad criminal charge that can range from misdemeanor to felony depending on the amount of property stolen.

Assault

Assault is an attack against another individual that can take on the form of sexual assault, aggravated assault, harassment and other related crimes.

Bench Warrants

Similar to an arrest warrant, a bench warrant against a person means that they can be arrested on the spot if found by law enforcement. Most commonly, a bench warrant will be issued against those who failed to show up in court.

Disorderly Conduct

Disorderly conduct falls under the realm of offenses against public health, safety and morals according to Georgia criminal law. This can include loitering, solicitation, public intoxication and other crimes.

Drug Charges

There are a number of different individual criminal offenses that fall under the category of “drug crimes.” These cases require a particular attention to detail and the aggressive defense of a client’s right in order to seek a dismissal or acquittal. Our experience in prosecution and defense serve us particularly well in these matters.

Expungements

Having your criminal record expunged means that it has been wiped clean of all your criminal charges. However, there are certain requirements that must be met in order to quality.

Firearm Offenses

While Georgia allows for individuals to carry a variety of different firearms openly without a weapon permit, handguns must be concealed and they require the holder to have a concealed carrier’s license. Weapons crimes that involve assault and brandishing will carry serious penalties.

Fraud Crimes

Fraud is a serious offense. By its very nature, it is the intentional deception for the sake of personal gain.

Hit & Run

This is also commonly referred to as failure to stop and give information or failure to stop and give aid. Those who are involved in a traffic collision but then do not stay at the scene until authorities show up may be charged in this way.

Identity Theft

This is a very specific form of theft. It is the stealing of a person’s personal information for the sake of stealing their money and other assets. This is commonly an internet crime, but can take other forms as well.

Internet Crimes

There are numerous crimes committed through the Internet, and these crimes are typically investigated by the FBI and other federal agencies.

Juvenile Charges

Minors accused of committing crimes face different legal proceedings than adults. Juvenile cases are generally handled with more of an emphasis on rehabilitating the minor, as opposed to simply enforcing harsh penalties that may not handle the underlying situation.

However, there are situations where a minor may be tried as an adult and may face the same penalties as an adult would. Therefore, we provide experienced defense counsel in all juvenile crime cases.

Kidnapping

It is not uncommon for kidnapping charges to be placed on those who are actually the legal guardians or biological parents of a child. Any type of kidnapping charge is serious, and may even constitute a felony.

Parole Violations

Those who are charged with crimes may get parole or probation as part of their sentence. There are strict punishments in place for those who violate the terms of their parole which may be grounds for automatic imprisonment.

Resisting Arrest or Evading Arrest

This can include running away from a police officer or failing to pull over for a cop car, threatening an officer, trying to get out of handcuffs or even giving an officer false information about identification.

Restraining Orders

A restraining order is not necessarily a criminal charge, but those that violate a restraining order may face a criminal charge. If convicted, a person who violates a restraining order could face fines and even jail time.

Search & Seizure

A police officer only has the right to search your persons or your property if they have just cause. In some cases, officers must obtain a search warrant before they do so.

Traffic Offenses

Traffic tickets are not crimes, but various types of moving violations will require a person to pay a fine. Paying this fine is tantamount to admitting guilt in the situation. You can combat these tickets.

Violent Crimes

These crimes are defined by their violent nature. This can be murder, rape, aggravated assault and related crimes. Violent crimes have more serious penalties than others do.

Warrants

In legal terms, a warrant is a legally obtained issuance to search, arrest or execute an action.

White Collar Crimes

White-collar crimes involve money being illegally obtained somehow. These include crimes such as fraud, embezzlement or insider trading.
