Criminal Defense


The legal consequences and emotional impact of being charged with - or having a family member charged with - a crime are significant. This is why your best course of action is to retain an attorney who acts accurately and quickly on your behalf. Here at Zimmerman & Associates, we respond quickly and can advise you on posting bail, how to respond to a citation of driver's license suspension, and how best to maintain your driver's license, etc. We represent clients charged with, among other things, misdemeanors (DUI, MIP, and marijuana) and/or felonies (drug use/possession, burglary, armed robbery, and murder). - See more at: http://www.zimmermanatlantalaw.com/practice-areas/criminal/#sthash.y1CLZ5ZQ.dpuf
