DUI DEFENSE


        “Going to court without competent legal counsel could be a costly mistake.”

      Like most states across the country, Georgia has enacted strong DUI laws meant to deter drivers who are impaired due to alcohol consumptionfrom getting behind the wheel. Under Georgia law, it is illegal for a person to drive or operate a vehicle with an unlawful blood or breath alcohol concentration. The legal limit for drivers aged 21 and over is .08 and it is even lower for drivers under 21 years old. If you are stopped by a police officer and discovered to have an unlawful alcohol concentration or are considered less safe to drive because of alcohol or drugs that you may have consumed, you will most likely be arrested and charged with DUI.                                   

      A DUI conviction can have a devastating impact on all areas of your life. Not only do you face jail time and hefty fines, your license could be suspended. A DUI conviction may prevent you from maintaining your current job or obtaining employment in the future. Moreover, your insurance rates could potentially skyrocket.

      Because the ramifications of a DUI conviction are so far reaching, you need to have an experienced Atlanta DUI law firm on your side. And Phillips Law Group, LLC is that law firm. Phillips Law Group was founded by Ebony Phillips, a graduate of Emory Law School. Prior to founding Phillips Law Group, Ms. Phillips prosecuted DUI/DWI cases for the city of Atlanta. As a result of that experience, Ms. Phillips has extensive knowledge of Georgia DUI law and Georgia criminal procedure and that knowledge is the bedrock of the DUI defense section at Phillips Law Group, LLC. Moreover, the attorneys at Phillips Law Group, LLC are well versed in the tactics city solicitors and county prosecutors routinely employ to extract guilty pleas from unrepresented DUI defendants and to get them to accept less favorable plea agreements.

      Phillips Law Group, LLC is a well-respected Atlanta DUI law firm and has gained the reputation of aggressively defending its clients in an effort to obtain the best possible outcome under the circumstances. Phillips Law Group, LLC has an extensive track record of assisting clients facing DUI charges in having their cases disposed of in a more favorable manner which often includes reduced charges, lesser fines, and alternative sentencing.

      Going to court without competent legal counsel could be a costly mistake. But having an accomplished DUI lawyer like Ebony Phillips on your side could make all the difference in the final outcome of your case – the difference between accepting the prosecutor’s initial recommendation and being able to negotiate a better outcome by finding weaknesses in the state’s case.

      Remember, the consequences of a DUI conviction are enormous: loss of freedom, fines, driver’s license suspension or revocation, probation, community service, DUI school, substance abuse treatment, increased auto insurance premiums, and more. Add to that the stigma of a DUI conviction and you can see how important it is to have the right Atlanta DUI attorney on your side.

PERSONAL INJURY


        “The insurance adjuster works for the insurance company; Phillips Law Group will work for you.”


      That’s right – the insurance adjuster is not on your side. His primary concern is settling your case for as little as possible. How your injury has impacted your life is not his primary concern.

      When you’re injured in any kind of accident, not only are you concerned about recovering from your injuries, you’re concerned about how long you’ll be off work, how much the medical bills will be, and whether your life will ever be “normal” again. Phillips Law Group understands your concerns and is sympathetic to your needs. We are fully prepared to fight the insurance company to get you the best possible settlement and if settlement negotiations fail, we can take your case to trial.

      When representing clients in personal injury cases, Phillips Law Group has two primary objectives: 1) ensuring that you are treated fairly and 2) helping you recover all you’re entitled to under the law. Whether you’ve been injured in an auto accident, a slip and fall accident, or have suffered any other kind of injury as a result of another’s negligence, Phillips Law Group will work with you to preserve evidence and deal with the insurance company or other offending entity to help you obtain the compensation you deserve. In most personal injury cases, recoverable damages can include:

• Medical Bills;
• Future Medical Bills;
• Lost Wages;
• Future Lost Wages;
• Pain and Suffering;
• Emotional Distress;
• Property Damage;
• Medical equipment;
• In Home Medical Care;
• Rehabilitative Care;
• Loss of Consortium; and
• Punitive Damages (when allowed by Georgia law).

      If you’ve been injured in any kind of accident, you have only a limited amount of time to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages. To protect your rights and ensure that you get the compensation you deserve, contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a consultation. We will evaluate your case and recommend the best course of action.

CRIMINAL DEFENSE


        "Even though you’ve been accused of committing a crime, the prosecution still has to prove it.”


      Being charged with a crime is one of the scariest things that can happen to a person. The thought of being convicted and sentenced to prison is even scarier. At Phillips Law Group, LLC, we understand this and we are fully committed to helping you through this confusing, difficult, and frustrating process. If you are convicted of a crime, you may face a prison sentence, fines, community service, probation, and a host of other penalties. If you are a repeat offender, you may face mandatory enhanced sentencing which means that the fines could be substantially higher and the length of your prison sentence could be substantially longer.

      Phillips Law Group understands the fundamentals of Georgia criminal law and procedure. Our experienced staff is familiar with the criminal court systems throughout the metro Atlanta area and surrounding counties. We bring our vast body of knowledge and familiarity with the courts, judges, and other courthouse personnel to bear for the benefit of each client facing criminal charges.

      Under the law, you are innocent until proven guilty. This means that even though you’ve been accused of committing a crime, the prosecution still has to prove it. When you hire Phillips Law Group, LLC we will investigate your case, interview witnesses, and review the evidence against you. Moreover, we will thoroughly examine your case for any procedural errors and technical defenses which may be the basis for having the charges against you dismissed, reduced, or amended.

      Phillips Law Group will never take the outcome of a case for granted. Even when we believe the chances of reaching a plea bargain or having the charges dismissed are good, we stand ready to take your case to trial in the event pre-trial resolution is unsuccessful. Because we treat each case as if it will go to trial, we are able to lay a solid foundation upon which a strong factual and legal trial defense can be built. Because the legal system can be frustrating and confusing, we will explain all aspects of the process to you every step of the way. If you have questions about a criminal case and would like to schedule a consultation, call Phillips Law Group today at 404-761-6800 or send us an e-mail at info@PhillipsLawAtlanta.com.


TRAFFIC


        “Even though it’s a traffic case, there’s still a lot at stake.”


      Driving is a privilege, not a right. Therefore, Georgia is tough on drivers who violate its traffic laws. Do not underestimate how a traffic offense may impact your life. Even though it’s a traffic case, there’s still a lot at stake.

      If you are found guilty of a traffic offense, you face a number of penalties including a fine, traffic school, community service, suspension of your driver’s license, points on your driving record, increased insurance rates, and even jail time. Some traffic violations, such as vehicular homicide (known as homicide by vehicle in Georgia), aggravated DUI (3rd DUI in 5 years), and serious injury by vehicle are felonies which carry larger fines and jail sentences and may also require restitution to the victim, community service, and probation. Depending on the circumstances, a felony conviction arising from a traffic violation may also result in revocation of your driver’s license. As you can see the stakes are high and for this reason, if you’ve been charged with a traffic violation, you should hire a qualified Atlanta traffic defense lawyer.

      Phillips Law Group understands exactly how much is at stake and will work diligently to defend you against charges. In many cases, the charges against you may be reduced or dropped. We handle a wide range of traffic cases including, but not limited to:

• Speeding;
• Reckless Driving;
• DUI/DWI;
• Driving on a Suspended License;
• Hit & Run;
• Racing;
• Running a Red Light;
• Running a Stop Sign;
• Driving Without Insurance;
• Driving Without a License;
• Homicide by Vehicle; and
• Serious Injury by Vehicle.


      Phillips Law Group is experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of traffic law. Ebony Phillips is a former traffic prosecutor for the City of Atlanta. Therefore, she is very familiar with the tactics and strategies utilized by prosecutors to obtain convictions. Having been on both sides of the bar, she is uniquely qualified to render the best defense possible. Her goal is to protect and preserve your driving privileges and avoid jail time when possible. If you have been charged with a traffic offense and are seeking to hire a qualified Atlanta traffic violation defense attorney, call Phillips Law Group today at 404-761-6800 or send us an e-mail at info@PhillipsLawAtlanta.com.
