Pate, Johnson, and Church - Attorneys at Law

We’ve Got Your Back

Facing a serious legal challenge can be difficult. It can be stressful, it can be confusing, and it can completely change the direction of your life. You shouldn’t have to face this fight alone. And you shouldn’t have to rely on a lawyer who isn’t willing or able to put in the time and effort necessary to win.

Over the past 25 years, we’ve been trusted by hundreds of people to help them overcome serious legal challenges. We have successfully fought back against the government in serious federal criminal cases, helped our clients win complex constitutional law and civil litigation matters, and we have protected courageous whistleblowers from retaliation.

Our federal criminal lawyers in Atlanta GA and Washington DC have won numerous awards and have been recognized by their peers as some of the top trial lawyers in the country.

If you are looking for a proven advocate to stand by your side in a serious case, you’ve come to the right place.
