Avoid The Harsh Consequences Of A Criminal Conviction - Contact Erin Today

Atlanta Criminal Defense Attorney Erin H. Gerstenzang has proven herself to be a uniquely successful advocate in case ranging from minor to serious traffic offenses including super speeder tickets. Erin has also had great success in defending clients with DUI charges, probation violations, along with drug offenses relating to possession and distribution.

The result of your case can have profound consequences on your life. Many of these types of charges may result in jail or prison time. Your conviction may be one that can appear on your driving record or your “rap sheet” for the rest of your life. You intuitively understand that a conviction can, for example, prevent you from being accepted by academic institutions or considered for future employment opportunities.

If this is the first time you have ever had to appear in court to answer to criminal charges, this is an exceptionally anxious period in your life.

Your primary concern at the outset should be to minimize the impact a criminal conviction will have on your future. It should still be possible to achieve all of the hopes and dreams you had prior to this charge.

Selecting the right defense attorney for your case is the first and most important step towards ensuring that your criminal charge does not prevent you from realizing the goals that you have set for yourself.

Any encounter with law enforcement, whether it is a simple citation or a felony arrest, should be treated very seriously. There are often grave and unforeseen consequences awaiting those who attempt to handle a criminal charge without being represented by an effective attorney. In Atlanta, Georgia, the one to turn to is Erin H. Gerstenzang.

Why did the officer write me a ticket for following too closely?

In almost every instance, a following too closely ticket (O.C.G.A. 40-6-49) is issued only when there has been an accident with a rear-impact collision.  When there are only two cars involved, and the rear driver is at fault, this citation makes sense. However it can often be over-used, especially when the accident involved three or […]
