Athens, Georgia Criminal Defense & DUI Attorney J. Lee Webb

Being arrested is one of the most stressful experiences a person can have, and we understand this. If you have been arrested for a crime in Georgia, there is no time to waste. You need an experienced Athens criminal defense attorney on your side, fighting for your rights, as soon as possible.

Athens criminal defense lawyer Lee Webb can help you. Mr. Webb graduated from the University of Georgia, then earned his juris doctor from Georgia State University School of Law, and he has been fighting for the rights of Georgia residents ever since. Mr. Webb has spent significant time working with the Athens-Clarke County courts, and has focused his legal career solely on providing people in need with an aggressive criminal defense. He is a frequent speaker around the State of Georgia, orating most often on DUI cases and marijuana possession.

Areas Of Practice

J. Lee Webb can help you no matter what crime you have been charged with. Our offices are well equipped and experienced defending people accused of all types of crimes, including DUI, drug crimes, Fake ID’s, minor in possession of alcohol, minor in possession of drugs, theft and any other crime you may have been charged with. What is most important is that you contact us before you speak with the police, and before your arraignment. Remember, agreeing to any plea bargain or deal, which may seem tempting at the time given the penalties you are facing, will result in a permanent criminal record.

Whether you are a student or currently employed, having a criminal conviction on your record can result in a number of consequences. Once your offense is discovered, you could be expelled from school or terminated from your job. A criminal record can even make things like traveling outside of the country or renting an apartment much more difficult.

Have You Been Charged With Marijuana Possession In Athens?

While the rest of the country legalizes or decriminalizes marijuana, Georgia is not yet moving in that direction. In Georgia, if you are arrested for marijuana possession in Athens, you can actually face jail time, and have a permanent criminal record. Having an aggressive criminal defense attorney fighting for your rights from day one is in your best interests.

Many of our clients have never been arrested in their lives, until they face a DUI charge. Being arrested for a DUI in Athens, Georgia can have permanent, negative effects on your life. A first DUI arrest in Georgia requires by law that you spend at least 24 hours in prison, and you could face much harsher penalties, and even lose your job.

Athens criminal defense lawyer J. Lee Webb can help you if you are facing DUI charges. He has devoted a major portion of his practice to defending DUI clients, and he is standing ready to help you fight your DUI charge.
