Georgia Criminal Defense

The best law firm for serious criminal cases in Georgia.

Page Pate and Jess Johnson have been extraordinarily effective in winning criminal cases in Georgia through hard work and creative advocacy. For over 20 years, our firm has been winning difficult felony criminal trials in courts across the State. Both Page and Jess have been recognized by various legal publications and directories as two of the best criminal defense attorneys in Georgia.

In this video, Page Pate explains the basics of Georgia criminal procedure, and what someone should expect if they are arrested in Georgia:



Our firm’s success comes through hard work, creativity and diligence. We are often able to find legal and factual defenses that less experienced lawyers may miss. Many times, our effort leads to a pretrial dismissal or very favorable resolution of the case. In cases where a pretrial dismissal is not possible, our lawyers prepare our clients for trial with unmatched diligence and focus. This trial preparation often leads to a dismissal or other favorable resolution of the case prior to trial.

Our greatest successes, however, have occurred in court. We have won difficult criminal trials in federal and state courts across Georgia and in many other states.

Our criminal defense lawyers have a well-earned reputation for winning difficult criminal trials in state and superior courts across Georgia. Here is a recent review from one of our many grateful clients:

I don’t know how to begin to express how much I appreciate the team of Pate Law Firm. From the beginning my family was treated with the extreme most dignity and caring. Despite being one client of many Mr. Pate and his associates always managed to make us feel as though we were the only client he had, with prompt and immediate attention when needed. Aside from the relationship his knowledge of the law in the area where we needed him was unparalleled and his performance in court rivaled the best in the nation! I sincerely believe that GOD led me to his team and I would tell anyone that it would be in their best interest to use the firm of Page Pate. He managed to accomplish the absolute best case scenario and gave my son back his life with NO indictment!
