Facing Criminal Defense Charges

Everyone has the right to a strong legal defense. Whether the charges are a DUI, a felony or a misdemeanor, it is always wise to fight them by hiring a lawyer. Attorney Cortney M. Stuart has extensive experience working in the criminal courts, both as a defense lawyer and as a prosecutor for some of the local townships in northern Georgia. We feel that this experience increases her effectiveness as an attorney.

Based at the Marger Stuart, LLC, office in Jasper, Ms. Stuart is well-known and respected in the local courts, yet she has also worked at the appellate and federal levels and can practice in Tennessee, Florida and Washington, D.C. Her legal background means she knows arrest procedures inside and out. She sometimes is able to hone in on errors made by law enforcement and can then file a motion to have evidence dismissed.

Always available for a consultation, Ms. Stuart is extremely attentive to the needs and goals of her clients. From initial consultation to the final decision, she will walk you through the process, providing clear and informed information that enables you to make educated decisions. In court or through negotiation, she aggressively protects the rights of her clients.

The Experienced Defense You Can Trust

We work on a variety of criminal cases, including:

  • DUI: Driving under the influence of alcohol is commonplace, but we also handle charges of driving while under the influence of drugs.
  • Drug charges: Sentencing can vary depending upon the drug and the charge. Some charges go to federal court.
  • Assault and battery: This includes physical or emotional harm and actions committed against the will of the victim.
  • Probation violation: If you are on probation and violate the terms, you could face jail time.
  • Rape and sex crimes: Those convicted are labeled as sex offenders and are put on state and federal registries. It is always best to aggressively fight these charges.
  • Crimes against children: This can include physical, mental or sexual abuse or exploitation of a minor.
  • Cybercrimes, white collar crime or fraud: These federal charges often involve taking advantage of the victim, either in person or online.
  • Robbery and theft charges: From armed robbery to petty theft, we will defend you.
  • Any other criminal charge

Protect Your Future

Criminal charges become more severe when the defendant is a repeat offender. It is always best to fight for the charges to be reduced or dismissed in case you end up facing charges again, perhaps many years later.
