Felony Defense Attorney in Cumming

Experienced Lawyer Committed to Thorough, Tenacious Defense

Felony crimes are serious. Although the nature of the felony will determine the potential severity of any sentence, a conviction of a major felony in Georgia means a very harsh prison sentence. As your Cumming felony defense lawyer, we will provide an extremely aggressive defense against every criminal charge you are facing. Your chances for success improve greatly when you get an early start on your defense.

Contact us at (678) 257-4507 to discuss your situation and assess your options in a free consultation.

The Prosecution is Already Working on Their Case. You Should Be, Too.

The prosecution of felony crimes is handled by the most experienced prosecutors. The district attorney’s office is highly motivated to see to it that you get a stiff prison sentence. The prosecutors work hard every day to build a case that will place you in prison. Georgia state law requires prison sentences for a conviction of any felony crime. Any aggravating factors, or prior arrest history, will complicate your felony defense. If you are not calling us now, you should be.

Standing Between You & the Charges Against You

The criminal defense strategy for every client is different because each case is different. Depending upon the evidence held by the state, the conditions surrounding your arrest, and the severity of the charges, we develop a strategy to fight a tough jury trial.

We may need to hire independent investigators, expert witnesses or lab services. We will certainly review the criminal investigation notes, validity of searches, arrest procedures, physical evidence, witness statements, and more to determine how much of the prosecutors case is real, and how much is conjecture and supposition. We use every ounce of the knowledge we have to create reasonable doubt among jurors, or prove straight-out that you are innocent. We are also in a position to resolve your case without ever exposing you to an adverse verdict. This often is how clients who cannot afford the gamble use our services.

Things to Look For in a Criminal Defense Attorney

When you are hiring a criminal defense lawyer you should look for three things:

  • First, someone who has handled your charges before: Attorney Kyle Epps has decades of criminal defense experience. Before becoming a lawyer, he worked as a police officer and then as a prosecutor in the Forsyth County Solicitor’s Office. He has handled felony charges from every angle: cop, prosecutor and defender.
  • Second, someone who will tell you the truth: We don’t tell you what you want to hear, we tell you what you need to hear. We won’t sugarcoat your situation. Instead, we give you an honest, reliable assessment of your case and your legal options.
  • Third, someone who will fight for you: Kyle Epps is a skilled litigator. He won’t roll over and plead out your case because it’s “easier.” He is prepared to fight for you, your rights and your future.

More About Felonies & Georgia’s ‘Seven Deadly Sins’

Georgia’s “Seven Deadly Sins” law was passed in 1995. The law mandates, for a first felony offense, a nonparolable sentence of at least 10 years in prison for rape, armed robbery, kidnapping, aggravated sodomy, aggravated sexual battery, or aggravated child molestation. The minimum sentence for the offense of murder is “life,” with no parole eligibility for 25 years. A second offense of any of the “Seven Deadly Sins” gets life without possibility of parole. Facing these charges means that you absolutely need a not guilty verdict or acquittal. Subsequent changes to Georgia law made it even more important to have a strong, highly motivated Forsyth County criminal defense attorney.

In 1996, parole was abolished for the six non-murder “deadly sins.” Anyone convicted of those felonies must serve 100 percent of their sentence, without parole or time reduced for good behavior. Georgia’s “Seven Deadly Sins” laws are the harshest in the USA for punishment resulting from felony convictions. Only two bad strikes result in life without possibility of parole. Once convicted, the odds of the courts overturning a conviction, or receiving a pardon, are extremely low. Anyone facing a serious felony charge needs a defense lawyer who can win and prevent the horrors of a prison sentence.

Repeat offenders are facing further problems. Georgia law requires tougher sentencing for repeat felony offenders. Excluding the “Seven Deadly Sins,” a second conviction of a felony offense results in the maximum possible sentence allowed, but with eligibility for parole. A fourth conviction of a felony offense requires imprisonment for 100 percent of the sentence, and no chance for parole.
