A Criminal Charge Will Affect All Areas Of Your Life

A traffic violation or a criminal charge can be an extreme obstacle to relief. You may face fines you cannot afford, or find yourself sentenced to time in jail — or both. You may fear that a criminal offense will lead to removal proceedings, forcing you to leave the United States. If you are facing criminal allegations, it is extremely important to work with a skilled lawyer who knows how to protect your interests and rights.

At Access To Law Foundation, we offer legal representation to individuals who might otherwise not afford it. We understand how difficult it is to make it through the legal system without the help of an attorney. That's why we've made it our mission to assist those most in need. Based in Norcross, we serve Georgia and the Southeast, offering legal representation to individuals from a variety of financial, social and religious backgrounds. Contact us today to learn more.

Traffic Tickets

Our Foundation provides representation in all manner of legal proceedings that stem from traffic and speeding violations, including:

  • Speeding tickets
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Driving without a license or with a suspended license
  • Driving without insurance
  • Hit-and-run
  • DUI*
  • Possession of drugs*
  • Failure to appear in court

For many, a traffic ticket itself is less worrisome than what it may lead to. A large proportion of Georgia residents fears a traffic violation may result in immigration removal proceedings. Access to Law Foundation is prepared to assist in these scenarios immediately.

*There may be some disqualifying crimes that prohibit or limit representation.

Protecting Your Family From Domestic Violence

Matters of domestic violence and neglect must be addressed swiftly and with the utmost seriousness. It is absolutely essential that family members — and children in particular — remain safe in their homes.

When a domestic dispute arises, our attorneys are able to intervene and help victims file temporary protection orders (TPOs). These are court-issued directives that prevent an offender from contacting or threatening individuals most vulnerable to abuse.

Disputing The Court's Decision — Appeals And Habeas Actions

In some situations, individuals do not receive the fair trial to which they are entitled. Their original attorney may not have provided adequate representation, or a judge may have mishandled the case.

The lawyers at Access to Law Foundation are accomplished in appealing initial court rulings. We work hard to have wrong decisions overturned in our clients' favor. The appeals process is a specialized area of the legal field; success hinges not on telling the client's story, but on demonstrating procedural mistakes were made during the initial trial. Our attorneys know what to look for, and how to pursue justice.

Likewise, our Foundation is skilled in petitioning for habeas corpus. This is a legal action to contest an individual's wrongful incarceration, or to challenge a conviction and vacate a sentence enacted in violation of constitutional procedures. Our lawyers have successfully petitioned for habeas corpus many times, in both state and federal court.
