CRIMINAL LAW

The Law Office of Melvyn J. Williams is dedicated to defending clients against both state and federal criminal charges.  Attorney Williams has extensive experience representing clients through all phases of the criminal process, from the initial questioning stage, through the investigation stage, through plea negotiations, and eventually through the Trial process.  Although plea negotiations may be appropriate in some circumstances, Attorney Williams always stands ready and able to take cases to Trial if necessary.
Attorney Williams understands how criminal investigations proceed, how evidence is collected and used, how law enforcement seeks to obtain confessions from suspects, and the kinds of tactics prosecutors use in offering plea bargains in exchange for reduced sentences. 
The State of Georgia takes a hard stance on crime, so, if you are facing criminal charges of any nature, experienced legal representation is vital.  Some crimes carry enhanced punishment, and are referred to as “The Seven Deadly Sins.”  Also, repeating the same criminal behavior over and over can subject an individual to being treated as a “Recidivist” or repeat offender.
While we are always told that a person is innocent until proven guilty, in today’s criminal justice system, it appears that you are already guilty once charged with a crime, and have to prove that you are innocent in a court of law.  That is not the way it should be.  In all criminal cases, Attorney Williams will make sure that your rights are protected to the fullest extent of the law.
