Criminal Defense

Fighting Criminal Charges

Simply stated, facing criminal charges is scary.  The entire process is filled with uncertainty about how an arrest and potential conviction will impact many facets of life in the future.  But please remember that you can make it through this process and put it behind you.  Most of our clients are able to do that all the time.  However, it is critically important that you make the right decisions now and moving forward.  The first one brought you to our website – finding a criminal defense attorney to effectively represent you.

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys

J. M. Heller, Attorney at Law, P.C. is an award-winning law firm dedicated to representing clients across northern Georgia in both minor and serious criminal cases. Our team has earned a reputation for producing positive results in the most challenging cases. Part of our success on behalf of clients is due to our extensive experience.  Firm founder, Jeff Heller, has been practicing law for more than 35 years.  He learned the best techniques for handling criminal cases early in his career as a Marine Corps JAG lawyer, and has continued his dedication to fighting for justice since.  Our other criminal defense attorney, Kam Keene, worked in the Cherokee County prosecutor’s office where he gained an insider’s view into how criminal cases are handled.  The two attorneys together form a tough team, ready to take cases as far as necessary to receive a just and fair result.

Types of Criminal Cases

Our firm represents both Georgians and out-of-state residents in a wide array of felony and misdemeanor criminal cases.  These include:

  • Drunk driving (aka DUI or DWI)
  • Drug trafficking, manufacturing, and possession
  • Theft
  • Robbery
  • Parole and probation violations
  • Weapons charges
  • Sex crimes, including internet and computer-related charges
  • Murder and homicide
  • Breaking and entering
  • Assault and battery
  • Trespassing
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Driving on suspended or revoked license

Our defense strategy in a particular case will depend on the unique circumstances of what happened as well as the seriousness of the charges and the client’s past criminal record.  Jurisdiction will also play an important part in our strategy. We routinely handle cases in Cherokee, Cobb, Forsyth, Bartow, Paulding, and Floyd counties which provides familiarity and an advantage when working to resolve criminal charges.  However, we are prepared, dedicated, and capable of representing clients in any courthouse in the state.
