Relentlessly Defending Your Innocence

If you have been arrested or accused of a crime, time is of the essence. If convicted, you will likely face hefty fines, jail time, or both. According to the state of Georgia’s mandatory minimum sentences, you will be forced to adhere to the minimum penalty that has already been established by lawmakers, regardless of the nature of your crime.

With such harsh penalties awaiting you, there is too much at stake to take a risk. This is why you should rely on the help of a seasoned Hinesville criminal defense attorney, such as ours. The Law Offices of Robert F. Pirkle has the energy and means necessary to resolve you of any charges, and we refuse to back down in the face of a challenge.
