Criminal Defense

Winning Tough Criminal Cases

Over 20 years of success in serious criminal cases.

Our criminal defense attorneys are among the most respected and elite criminal defense trial attorneys in the United States. Page Pate and Jess Johnson have been recognized for many years as “Super Lawyers” in criminal defense, in the Top 100 Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers, and Georgia Trend’s Legal Elite. More importantly, our firm has won dozens of serious criminal trials in federal courts across the country. We have also kept clients from being charged in international criminal investigations in Spain, England, Ireland and the Bahamas.

In addition to our impressive record of “not guilty” verdicts in criminal trials, our firm has also obtained pretrial dismissals and very favorable plea deals in many other criminal cases without the need for a trial. In fact, we are not aware of any criminal defense law firm with more recent successful results in serious criminal cases.

A recent review from the wife of one of our clients:

After interviewing countless attorneys, my husband and I hired Mr. Pate’s firm to defend against unfortunate and serious criminal charges brought against him. (He is a family practice physician.) These charges not only threatened to end his medical career after 20+ years of training & experience, but shook the very foundation of our family itself. After a lengthy legal battle, his case finally went to trial with proceedings lasting 3 days. After only a brief 25 minutes of deliberation, the jurors returned a NOT GUILTY verdict. Mr. Pate worked tirelessly, diligently, and professionally at all times, leaving no stone unturned. He always patiently & thoroughly answered our questions, returned our phone calls immediately, and offered us strength, honesty, and hope during very difficult days. While our family lost much sleep during those challenging years, we rested soundly knowing that Page Pate was our attorney. He made us feel as if he were fighting not only for my husband’s career as a doctor, but whole-heartedly for our family every step of the way. My husband looks forward to many years of continuing to meet the needs of his patients in our community as he feels God has called him to do, and I as a wife and mother of 3 little ones can enjoy peace-of-mind as we look forward to brighter days ahead. Thank you, Mr. Pate!
