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.

Our lawyers and staff have 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 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.

Our Clients


“If you need someone to fight for you, to truly stand by you, and if you need someone to come to your rescue who truly cares, then you need The Church Law Firm.”

Keelan K., a former client


“When I tell you that Tom Church is an amazing lawyer, my words would do no justice. Prepared, precise, and perfection are just a few words to describe my experience. He was able to give me back my life after ten years of it being on hold”

K.W., a former client


“It isn’t hyperbole to say that because of Tom Church I am here and able to write this review. Despite statistically facing near certain time in prison for my charges, he was able to successfully negotiate a probationary sentence. Not only was the outcome incredibly rare, but it was also achieved far from Tom’s home state.”

James C., a former client


“Attorney Thomas Church was the ‘ray of hope’ that our family needed when we were struggling with how to get our son released from prison during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Ida W., mother of a former client
